Garden gifts can show a loved one just how much you care — and allow them to make a tangible change to their outdoor space that will bring them happiness whilst outdoors. Whether it's something that will come to fruition as spring and summer approaches, like a seedbox, or something you can treasure straight away, such as a houseplant, there's nothing better than a wonderful garden-related gift to brighten things up. Especially if the recipient has a green thumb, even more so if they are super outdoorsy like us.
From small gestures for a friend to bigger gifts (such as a delightful pizza oven) for your significant other that you can share, there is such a wide range of items that you can wrap up and hand over to make your loved one happy.
We've included all of our favorite outdoor picks, so all you have to do is work out which is the most suitable for the recipient of your gift, especially as Valentine's Day and Galentine's Day are both approaching.
