Stuck for gardening gift ideas for mom? In this buying guide, I’m going to be sharing some of my favourite quirky gardening gifts ideas for mom (and the other gardeners in your life), to help you out this Mother’s Day, Christmas or anytime in between!
Just as no two gardens are alike, neither are two gardeners. So when it comes to shopping for the green-fingered friends in your life it can be quite a challenge! In saying this, there are so many fun and unique gardening gifts available these days, you might be surprised at what you can find.

So without any further ado, here are my top gardening gift ideas for mom:

Best Gardening Gift Ideas For Mom:
For the eco-friendly gardener, these DIY gardening pot makers are a sustainable and practical gift. Create seedlings pots out of recycled newspaper that can be planted straight in the ground. Really easy to use, (they say 3yrs olds can do it) the kids will love to help too!
I love this gift as it’s a fun way to encourage beginner gardeners to start growing their own food. The kit has everything they need to grow their own organic indoor herbs. 100% eco-friendly and complete with bamboo pots & markers, heirloom seeds, instructions & recipes.
Create a genuine living work of art! This unique growlight frame will keep houseplants thriving, even when there’s not much natural light.
Utilise for herbs above the kitchen counter or as a show stopping focal piece in a hallway or living room. This gift is sure to wow!
Join the buzz about bees with this Bee BnB! Pollinators are vital for the garden so what better way to encourage them to hang around? Native bees are solitary & the destruction of their native habitat is making it harder to survive, with a number of species already endangered.
I’ve always been a sucker for a good garden trug, and this one has its added quirks. The mesh enables produce to be washed easily so dirt doesn’t need to be carted inside. This sturdy basket also doubles as a tool caddy or can be used to collect wood for the fire.
What a wonderful way to celebrate a birthday or mother’s day! All the elements are included for this beautiful garden – seeds, a glass bottle to grow them in, the soil-less growing medium & info about what the flower symbolizes. Once the garden has finished blooming, the garden becomes a vase! A gift that will last longer than a bouquet of flowers!
This vintage inspired compost caddy is a stylish yet practical gift for mom. Made from high quality, easy-to-clean stainless steel. Available in four different colors including sea foam green. This durable caddy will suit any kitchen and help Mom on her composting journey.
