Buy this brilliant seed calendar for someone who loves to plant as the months change, as not only will it tell them what to pot when, but it even includes the seeds they need to use! What a fab gift idea – and it will look nice hung on display in their kitchen.
To top it off, this calendar is even eco-friendly and it's beautifully illustrated. Plus, each month comes with new gardening tips and to keep your garden in tip top condition.
Whether they are without a garden or they have more indoor house plants than outdoor greenery, this lovely gift idea will help them keep their plant babies in the best condition they can. In the box comes all of the essential nutrients needed, from a bottle of Feed & Tonic to a bottle of Perfecting Houseplant Care Mist.
See our best indoor plants guide if you're also thinking of buying them a new plant friend.
This very handy guide can instruct them when it's time to plant what, without having to ask Alexa, go to Google or whatever else. It's also nice enough to be displayed in a kitchen or utility room. Add a gift note and let them choose a frame to fit with their interiors – ta-dah!
This lovely gift will be hand-printed in Hertfordshire onto good quality 250gsm recycled card. It comes in two colour options, too.
If your recipient is in need of a seedbox to store and separate their fruit seeds from their veg seeds, then this box would make a perfect gift. And, it can be personalised. It even comes with four wooden dividers, one for fruit, another for veg, one for herbs and a blank one for them to personalise.
This lovely gift is made from solid birch plywood, and the box has metal hinges to make it secure. It's a handy way to store seeds, and good looking, too – she can pop it in her utility room on display.
We've tried and tested this Ooni Fyra Portable Outdoor Pizza Oven in our best pizza ovens guide, and we only have good things to report back. Not only is it affordable, but it's also easy to use, it looks great, it's portable and obviously it makes incredible pizzas, too. It ticks all our boxes! Wood-fired, it can cook pizza dough – specifically a 12-inch size pizza – in just 60 seconds, and it's great for use when you have people over or several mouths to feed.

Spending hours on the ground sowing seeds or weeding can be tiring, and if you’ve ever spent the day after a full-on gardening session with sore knees, you’ll know why padded protection is so important – we like this one sold at Not on the High Street. Gift it to Mum to soften the blow after a long day in the garden – and she can hang it up in the garage after use.
With a foam inner and a canvas cover, this weatherproof kneeler boasts faux suede handles, edging and backing. It can also be hand washed if need be, just don't leave it outside in bad weather.
The ELEPHAS Video Projector is budget-friendly and it works with everything from TV sticks to laptops, tablets, DVD players, game consoles, smartphones and more, so they won't be short of things to watch. Buy this for someone who loves spending time in their garden, so that they can catch up on their favourite series whilst chilling alfresco.
It even claims to be 80% brighter than other projectors of similar sizes, and, as well as supporting 1080p - it boasts a whopping 4,500 lumens. Sporting built-in speakers for ease of use – though they may want to plug in their own – it's lightweight at just 2.25 pounds. Its updated cooling system also cuts the fan noise in half for a better experience.
Few rooms can’t be improved without a cushion or two and the same goes for gardens, so add a splash of colour and texture to a friend or relative’s outdoor living room or dining area with one (or more) of these quirky, matchbox-inspired designs.
Each seat pad is handmade with a 100 per cent polyester filling, and they are exclusive to Graham & Green. An easy way to add a pop of colour to a garden, we think...
Give the gift of a relaxing cup of tea with this rosebud-scattered loose leaf white tea, perfectly presented in a charming caddy – and inspired by Chelsea's colourful floral history, from the Physic Gardens to the Chelsea Flower Show.
This tea caddy contains enough leaves for 25 cups of tea – and it will look lovely on display in the kitchen. Get her a strainer and a new mug, too, and complete the set.
For somebody who has lots of mismatched pots around their garden, a plant stand would come in handy. This way they can all sit in the same place when it comes to watering, and it's an easy way to cover up an otherwise plain wall.
With a charming rustic design, this iron plant stand lets you display your favourite plants and add height and interest to your garden – and thanks to its tiered design, it's perfect for small spaces like patios and balconies as much as sprawling plots.
New gardening gloves might sound like a boring present, but not when they look this good. This lovely pair can also be personalised with birth flowers. Because everyone needs a few pairs of gardening gloves – a pair for planting, some for digging, weeding, and then a fancy pair. Agreed?
These gloves are made from faux suede to give them a luxury feel – and look. We are sure your Mum will love them. Even more so if she has an allotment – she'll be the best dressed...
Another book to add to their shelves, this one is pretty and within the pages, they can see and learn about some of the prettiest gardens over the globe. Not just that but it's also filled with informative texts, courtesy of leading garden designers and writers, horticulturalists, and landscape architects. A must-read on a rainy day that they can't spend in the garden.
Not only is this hardback lovely on the outside, but it's even prettier on the inside. There are 472 pages in total – it ought to keep her busy for a day or so...
If you are searching for a trusty (and impressive) gift for Mum, Grandma or your Sister, then look no further than this ultimate garden bundle. It comes with everything she needs to start potting. Not just that, but it's all wrapped in a gift box, ready to gift (or to send straight to her door).
Included in this gift set comes everything from gardening gloves to seeds and plant markers. There's even a mug and Tea Pigs to ensure she can enjoy a good brew out in the garden too.
Made to sit atop a kitchen windowsill to house herbs, this planter can be personalised to suit your giftee(s) and it arrives ready to fill. We're thinking basil, tomatoes, perhaps some spring onions?
This garden box is made from FSC certified dark stained wood, as well as designed and printed in Delightful Living's Derbyshire studio. It comes in two sizes – small or medium – and you can personalise it to say names, dates or a quote. Choose this personalisation to be on both sides or one side.
If they are in need of a new gardening apron – perhaps their current one is slightly worn out after the year we've had? This one from Sparks and Daughters is a lovely option – and it can be personalised with initials. You can also opt to get it gift wrapped so you can send it straight to their door.
This denim apron has been designed and created by Sparks and Daughters in their workshop in Somerset. It comes in black or blue, and you can choose which colour you'd like their initials printed in. We love it, and we're sure they will, too!
Whether their pressure washer is a little worse for wear, or perhaps a pressure washer has always been on their wish list? If it's one for regular use, this Kärcher option that tops our best pressure washers guide is your best bet. It can clean anything from large patios and driveways to brickwork, garden furniture – plus lots more. As the name suggests, when paired with an app, it not only guides you through the stages needed for your clean but also automatically adjusts the pressure for each part. This optimises your clean and makes sure you don't damage anything in the process.

A lovely gift idea, this kit is easy to use and even prettier to open – it's also eco-friendly. Inside the box comes pretty much everything they need to create their own garden borders, from the seeds to garden border design template measuring 3m x 1m (this can be adapted to fit your space). Also included comes information on how to give your plants the best life. No gardening skills or knowledge required...
This kit comes in a range of designs and you can even buy a bespoke version, too. They will love it!
Festoon lights are SO in right now – and it's easy to see why. They can blend in seamlessly in pretty much any garden, while they give off quite a lot of light. Not just that, but these ones from Lights4Fun have eight different effects to choose from, and they are solar-powered.
Practical and pretty, these lights are simple to hang and easy to maintain. They get their charge in the day, ready to light up your garden come nighttime. In total, they measure 4.2metres.
Gift them this mug to enjoy a cuppa in their garden, in style. It comes with a stainless steel spoon that's shaped like a shovel and it reads 'Gardener of the year'. Very fitting!
This ceramic mug will get lots of use from your Mum – especially during springtime. This way, she needn't take one of her really fancy mugs into the garden, and she will have a dedicated garden mug.
A great gift for someone who treasures their pizza oven, this personalised chalkboard menu can bring the pizzeria home. Personalise it with their name, and write the toppings you'll be offering on the chalkboard area. It also has zinc hooks for hanging tools or an apron.

This handmade gift is perfect for anyone who is hoping to inject some colour into their garden, but isn't quite sure where to start. Inside the bag lives 10 seed bombs that will attract bees and butterflies, along with planting instructions. All they need is a spare patch of soil.
This would make an ideal stocking filler gift for a gardener, otherwise it's a lovely Secret Santa present.
