If the gardeners you know are anything like me, they’ll love finding interesting things to put in their garden to personalise it, and what better than handmade goodies? These are the things they can show off when their garden-loving friends visit, and enjoy knowing have been created with care and attention to detail. That’s pretty unique too. Perfect.
This mug is perfect for a well-earned brew when working in the garden, and I think we can all agree with the sentiment ;)

How about a cactus for your gardener to sit on? This cushion would look great on a garden chair or bench.

These willow dragonflies would make a lovely gift for the crafty gardener. Using this kit, gardeners can make their own willow dragonfly garden decorations to put into their garden borders or as a feature in a container. Very satisfying.

Something for the indoor gardener, or to go into a conservatory or summer house, this would make a fantastic feature planter at the centre of a table. I love the sea and sand theme to the design.

All gardens need pest control at some point, so how about attracting the natural kind? Birds can bathe in this, hedgehogs can drink from it and it adds a splash of colour to the garden at the same time.

This bug hotel is a piece of art to add to a garden wall or fence and will also attract the solitary bees that are so good at pollinating garden flowers and fruit. Ladybirds and lacewings (top aphid munchers) can hibernate in here too.

These botanical notebooks are perfect for jotting down plant names or ideas on garden visits, or when you’re planning your own garden borders or veg plot for the year.

This present is for when they finally stop gardening and actually sit down and enjoy being in the garden with a good book – probably one on gardening ;)
