Gift Ideas for Gardeners!

 

We all have a gardener in our lives and this can be a difficult time of year (December) to find that perfect plant.  So here are some gift ideas for gardeners, some enhance gardens, some pamper gardeners, and some make gardening easier.  Some just let them know you understand and appreciate how much their work means to them and the impact it has on all who experience it!

Pamper Gardeners

We can’t say enough about this lovely line In the Garden from local jewelry maker, Bella Vita (on watercolor card).  Each of these charms was molded from a garden-themed antique button.  This line was inspired by the time creator Brandy McNair spent in her grandmother’s garden. We also have other garden or Arkansas related jewelry and holders. Love Grandmother’s Buttons, made from antique buttons in a small company, located in Louisiana. And MADE jewelry (bracelets, necklaces, earrings) are made from Arkansas crystals that were hand mined by the artisan, Stacy MacDonald!

Caren lotions, soaps and shower flowers are sublime!  There are wonderful scents to choose from and all their products have been formulated to soothe and refresh even the most sensitive skin.  Each one contains aloe vera, glycerin, and antioxidants to give us that glow!  The Gardener’s line is especially moisturizing.

Take a look at these scentsational candles! Not only do they have fresh and calming scents, Paddywax candles are in fun recycled wine bottles. The small green ones are made in Haiti, out of recycled beer bottles and come with matches. And we have fun matches to complete the gift!

Gardening Fun!

These are not just for kids!  Fairy gardens are fun for every age.  The Good Earth Gift Shop has a very large selection of whimsical, woodland and garden themed accessories!

Houseplants are back in a big way!  We have tons of them to choose from PLUS modern, rustic and traditional containers to match any decor style. Choose a pot and we can help you pick out a plant… add a Moisture Meter and DONE… complete gift!

Macrame is back!  This old favorite has made a big comeback too and for good reason.  Nostalgia meets function… doesn’t get better than that!  These are made right here in the US.

Functional Gardening Gifts

If you know someone who grows herbs, they could benefit from both pairs of these scissors.  One cuts and strips and has three notch sizes to choose from, making harvesting from woody herbs such as rosemary quick and easy.  The other pair features 5 parallel blades that cut chives and other herbs quickly and evenly, without crushing them.

Terrariums.  Whether the gardener in your life loves succulents or tropicals, terrariums remain one of the most fun ways to have a miniature garden. Add some fairy garden accessories and make it a centerpiece!

These hand glazed birds landed here after being hatched especially for Good Earth… in fact, Good Birds can’t be found anywhere else in Arkansas!  Available in red, blue and yellow, and in four different sizes!

Make Gardening Easier on Them!

Kneelo pads protect and cushion knees.  Sounds simple, right?  Nope.  There are other knee pads and cushions out there but they don’t feature super cushiony memory foam, covered with neoprene like the Kneelo pads do.  The flexible knee pads work well because they allow gardeners to walk and stand as well as kneel in comfort.  They are also handy for painting projects.

Pruners that last; that is what you will get with Felcos.  They are durable, lightweight pruners with replaceable blades.  They also have sturdy handles with a lifetime guarantee.  And check out the Felco saw and belt holder!

Garden Works Soil Scoop is must!  It features a serrated edge that cuts into compacted soil, can cut through roots and even break through clay!  Plus it’s got a cushion grip and is friendly to the wrist, a must when gardening.

Presto Buckets store flat then open to a 2.9 watertight bucket.  They make a good vegetable or debris collection buckets and are perfect for trips, camping, as a drink carrier, etc.  It comes in a zippered holder with a tab to hang it easily too!

 

Gloves!  In all sizes, even for kids. We now carry Garden Freak gloves, the webbed fingers make picking up soil and materials easier and more efficient!

High performance, long lasting water tools from Dramm.  These really LAST!  And the bright colors make them easier to find when you accidentally put them down in an odd place.  There are timers, watering wands, and even sprinklers than can cover a variety of sizes and shapes of lawn.

Handmade in Holland, these DeWit Tools are the real deal.  You will love these high quality tools that offer a lifetime guarantee.

Garden Accessories!

Pottery!  We have a large selection of durable pottery in all kinds of colors, shapes and sizes!

Nothing adds ambiance like sound and these windchimes really do the trick.  Choose from a variety of sizes and styles.

Provide a home for beneficial insects in the garden with these adorable bug houses!

The world’s coolest rain gauge!  The tube floats up to show how much rain we have gotten; easy to use and unbreakable.

And speaking of rain, we have tons of lovely rain chains.  These make any rain event more soothing, creating a small waterfall as water runs down them.

We also offer gift cards in any amount!  We look forward to helping you find that perfect gift this season!
