With Christmas just around the corner, sourcing gardening gifts for your family’s resident green thumb is always a safe bet – so what are your options?
For most people, December is arguably the busiest month of the year. School’s out, work deadlines kick in and large family gatherings are on the cards for a number of us. As such, it’s easy to forget about what presents to purchase to be unwrapped on Christmas Day, particularly something that will be both cherished and utilised instead of gathering dust.
If you’re guilty of getting sucked into the Christmas consumerism trap every year, you might want to consider whether piles of presents even makes you, your family, your friends or the environment happy. Instead of waiting until the week before Christmas, one effective way to combat this is to actually have the time to put some thought into the types of presents you opt for – particularly if you share your home with a gardening enthusiast.
Our Christmas Gardening Gifts Shopping Guide
Thanks to its proven emotional and physical benefits, gardening as a hobby is a trend on the rise. For people who have loved ones with a passion for plants, this also provides a window of opportunity to get them a Christmas present that they will actually use.
Aside from purchasing more plants to add to their favourite green areas, gardening gifts can also include accessories and tools that are designed to make a green thumb’s life easier when tinkering away in the dirt. In fact, just a handful of our favourites include the following.
Ultimate Garden Booster Pack – If your green thumb loved one is passionate about sustainability, then one of the most useful gardening gifts for Christmas is the Ultimate Garden Booster Pack. Containing 100ml bottle of RE-250, 100ml bottle of FP-60 and a 2L concentrate of Biotic Booster, these probiotic plant superfoods will revolutionise the health of any garden.
Natural Insect Repellent – While gardening has a wide range of wholesome benefits on offer, the downside of spending time in the great outdoors is sharing your space with mosquitos.

Kids Gardening Packs – One of the more wholesome gardening gifts you can buy for the smaller members of your family include a Parents & Kids Gardening Kit. As gardening is a healthy outlet to get children outside and interested in how things grow, the kit includes a child-friendly tool set plus a garden bag for parents to safely transport the tools around the yard.

If someone you love is in the early days of exploring a gardening hobby and are looking to keep their plants healthy with little to no maintenance, aim to embrace forward thinking and proactive measures instead of reactive ones, especially when it comes to things like watering, weeding, fertilising and tackling pests. The good news is that gardening enthusiasts no longer need to turn to chemical based products to look after their plants, as there’s now naturally derived alternatives.
Introducing A Safer Way To Spray
