Garden Harvest Baskets

A beautiful garden harvest basket is something I have wanted for a long time, but have never bought for myself. I know that any one of these baskets would make a great gift for a mom who loves gardening. These are the top three that caught my eye on Amazon, but there are certainly other beautiful options as well. If you’d like to make your mom an extra special garden themed gift, grab one of these baskets and then fill it up with a few of the other items on my list. I’m sure a garden bounty basket filled with useful garden items would be a huge hit!

Unique Garden Plant Markers

Garden plant markers are another fun gardening gift, and also something I never bother to buy for myself. I don’t have garden markers, but I really love the classic metal markers included in this list of ideas and would absolutely love it if someone gave them to me!

Fun Indoor Gardening Kits

If your mom likes gardening kits, these kits might fit the bill! Not only are the lovely to look at, but they’re practical too! I think the cans of herbs or the indoor cilantro jar would look lovely on the kitchen window sill. I’ve never grown my own mushrooms, but have always thought it would be fun to try.

Items that Help Attract Pollinators to the Garden

Every gardening mom knows that pollinators are essential to successful gardens. If you’d like to gift your mom something to help her attract pollinators to her garden, here are a few useful and beautiful items. I actually have the bee house and the hummingbird feeder and love them both.

My Favorite Organic Gardening Books

Gardening books are not only useful, but fun as well. Make sure to add a gardening book to the harvest basket gift! Your favorite gardener will appreciate any of these gardening books. 😀

Useful Gardening Tools

Beautiful and practical gardening tools are always a hit in my book. I love my steel watering cans and garden knife. They’re useful for so many reasons. Admittedly, I don’t wear my garden gloves as often as I should, but maybe this year will be the year I actually start. 🙂

Fun Gardening T-Shirts

So these gifts aren’t necessarily practical, but they are awfully cute. If your mom loves gardening and t-shrits, maybe one of these fun t-shirts would be right up her alley.

Fun Gardening Signs Make Awesome Mother’s Day Gifts for Gardeners

Also not practical, but a fun gift nonetheless, here are a few of my favorite garden related signs. 😀 These are decor, obviously, not for use in your garden. But they could make for cute displays in a gardening shed or on a front porch.

    Hi Michelle,

    All great ideas and I snicker because Angie also featured the garden hod and I am too on Thursday. Great minds, right? These gift items are great for so many different occasions, Mother’s Day, birthdays and Father’s Day too. All so helpful and the coupon idea is genius for those who have kids around to help. Mine are grown and although one still technically lives at home, I don’t get to see much of her.

    Such a great Inspiration post. My mom would like some of these ideas for sure. Amazon is full of great ideas. I love the garden gifts you have highlighted. My shopping trigger finger is getting itchy! Love those printable coupons too. Happy Mother’s Day!

  3. blankAngie Rose says

    What wonderful ideas Michelle! When I was a little girl, I’d always make my mom coupons each year for a back rub or a chore like this. She loved that 🙂 I agree that everyone needs a great garden basket. I love my garden hod, couldn’t live without it! I love those metal garden markers. I always want some, but the price holds me back. I should probably get one here and there so I eventually have a nice collection. That mushroom farm is so cool. I adore all of your ideas. I’m going to keep many of these in mind for my mom this year.

    So many great ideas Michelle. I love the coupons too. I have a metal watering can, my kids and hubby gave it to me a few years ago for Mother’s Day and it has lasted and worked so well. So much better than the cheaper plastic ones that never seem to last long.
