Garden Gift Ideas For Mother’s Day
Can you use some garden gift ideas for Mother’s Day? I love Mother’s Day and it’s right around the corner. If you have a special person in your life I hope these garden gift ideas help you find just the right one. I’m probably more practical than most people, I love gifts I can use. This time of year it’s garden time, and we can usually use a few new garden ideas, right?
It’s like shopping from home, you can look at these gifts and decide what your special gardener would love on Mother’s Day. I’m a visual person, so I spent the day making it possible for you to view each one of these gifts.
When we lived closer to our married daughters we would enjoy a Mother’s Day Sunday Brunch every year in a town called Midway, Utah. It’s a beautiful small town with some of the best mountain views in the state. We had a large group with 4 daughters, 4 sons-in-law, and 17 grandchildren. It was a wonderful way to spend Mother’s Day with those we love so much!
We had to make the reservations one year in advance and the whole family looked forward to driving up the canyon to enjoy a wonderful feast together. Now we’re spread out over three states, so life goes on.
22 Garden Gift Ideas
1. Garden Hat
If you have a hat when you’re out in the sun it protects you from the rays of the sun, and actually may cool you down a bit. Garden Hat
A gardener can always us a new pair or two of garden gloves. If you can find some rose gloves, those are even better. You know those thorns get us every time! Garden Gloves
3. Kneeling Pads
When you kneel on your knees it sure is nice to have one of those soft cushioned pads. You can get them just about anywhere in so many cute colors. Kneeling Pads
4. Garden Rolling Seat
There is something about having a rolling “chair” in the garden, if you have room to roll it around your various plantings. This is one of my favorite things. Garden Rolling Seat
5. Garden Basket/Hod
It’s so awesome to have a basket or a garden hod to gather your harvest. It’s a bonus if it rinses out easily. This is the one I have, it’s so sturdy it should last a lifetime: Garden Hod/Basket
6. Seed Starter Kits
It’s so fun to start seeds in the house in the winter and in the summer. Then we can be ready for a spring planting and a fall planting. It’s all about being self-sufficient. I just barely set out my seedlings in the garden. Seed Starter Kit
7. Garden Seeds
By now, you know I buy all my garden seeds from SeedsNow. I like their seeds because they are Heirloom, Organic, and Non-GMO seeds.
8. Tool Caddy
There is something awesome about having a tool caddy. You rinse your tools after using, let them dry and store them in the same place after you use them. You never have to go find them. Tool Caddy
9. Seed Container
I finally purchased a seed container this year. I have stored my garden seeds for years in mason quart jars. But, I never knew exactly what I had. My gut is telling me to be more serious about gardening than ever before. So, I took the plunge and purchased two seed containers so I could place all my garden seeds in the containers in alphabetical order. Seed Container
10. Soil Thermometer
In the spring, it’s nice to have a soil thermometer, because then you can test your soil to see if it’s warm enough to plant your seedlings. Of course, you still need to watch the weather to make sure all signs of frost have passed. But if the soil is too cold, seedlings may not survive when you plant them. Here is the one I purchased: Soil Thermometer
11. pH Level Tester
If you have been reading my vegetable garden posts you probably realize how important a pH Level Tester is to check your garden soil. This is the one I have: pH Level Tester
12. Wind Chimes
I love wind chimes, as long as they’re not too loud! I have one that sounds like the wind is blowing softly outside. Wind Chimes
13. Watering Can
I use a watering can for mixing fertilizer for my vegetables and flowers. We can always use a really good watering can. Watering Can
14. Garden Pruners
Do you find you need several pair of garden pruners? I sure do. They come in various capacities for cutting different thicknesses, like the ones that are designed for 1/4-inch cuttings. Some are good to cut through 1/2-inch, 3/4-inch, and some can cut through a 1-inch branch without any trouble. This is why I have 5 or 6 pairs. Here is one that I have: Garden Pruner
15. Nozzles & Sprayers
I find that hose sprayer do not last for years. Yes, we can replace the washers, but sometimes they just wear out. So, it’s nice to have a spare or two in your arsenal of garden tools. Garden Sprayer
16. Tomato Cages
If you buy a good tomato cage the first time, hopefully, they will last a lifetime. You can buy the flimsy ones at most of the big box stores. I like the really sturdy ones I know will truly last. I just don’t like to replace them every year. Tomato Cages
17. Gathering Apron
I actually have one these and it’s great because I can pull a few weeds and put them in one of the pockets. I can also carry my pruners and scissors. I love it! Gathering Apron
18. Herb Drying Rack
This is really fun because it’s easy to hang just about anywhere, and I love the look! Herb Drying Rack
19. Potting Table
Has your special gardener requested a potting table? She can pot her plants while standing up with the containers and soil close at hand.
20. Garden Tool Belt
Every gardener likes their garden tools in one place. We like them clean, dry and stored ready to go for the next project. Garden Tool Belt
21. Gardening Clogs
It’s awesome to have a pair of waterproof shoes to wear outside. They come in the cutest colors and designs. Gardening Clogs
22. Rain Barrel Container
Maybe it’s just me, but I really want a couple of rain barrels to collect rainwater. They are on my wishlist for 2020. If we have a shortage of water, I would love to be able to collect rainwater to water my garden, or filter the water for drinking. We can never have too much water. Water Barrel
I hope you enjoyed my post today on the many garden gift ideas we can give on Mother’s Day! Here’s to being prepared in life, and the garden is one of those places we should consider as special. It’s all about growing our own food and being self-sufficient. May God bless this world. Linda

Garden tools and flats of flowers or hanging pots have always been a favorite Mother’s day gift for me. My own Mom has been gone for 34 years and I still find Mother’s day hard to celebrate. She loved flowers, especially red geraniums and nasturtiums. I always plant red geraniums in her honor every Mother’s day.
Hi Liz, oh I LOVE your comment! I used to love getting flats of flowers. My very favorite flower in the garden is a RED Geranium!! It’s so hard to lose our mother, it doesn’t matter how old we are. Liz, my mom left me a little money after she died 13 years ago and I bought a sewing machine with part of it. Whenever I sew something I think of my mom and I know she is so glad I purchased a sewing machine. I had one but I upgraded and gave my old one to someone who needed one. 34 years is a very long time. I love how you plant red geraniums every year in her honor every Mother’s Day!!! Linda
