If you’re looking for inspiration for the best garden gifts for mom (or any gardener in your life), you’re in the right place. Gardening tools feel a little magical, because a new gardening apron, gloves or digging tools can inspire you to dig deeper and get more done!

Garden gifts are so much fun to shop for, because while these items are often utilitarian, they can also be oh-so-beautiful. In fact, many of these gardening tools are so pretty you don’t even need to hide them in the garage!

Learn about my favorite tools used for gardening in this shopping round-up for green thumbs (and those who only wish their thumbs were green).

One of my favorite things to do in my downtime is garden. It’s the ultimate stress reliever, and allows me to feel productive while also enjoying the outdoors and getting a little exercise in, too.

It’s also one of my favorite ways to connect with our home and all the best parts of outdoor living. We’ve worked really hard to update our landscaping and backyard at our home in St. Louis, and also our lake cottage.

Did you see our new potting bench in the garage? It’s a dream come true and would make a wonderful gift for a special gardener in your life! Ever since we added it, I’ve been so excited, planting new lavender trees and so much more.

Of course, it’s always a challenge to see if we can circumvent the local deer and other critters who love our blooms almost as much we do! It’s been a pleasure to create a charming garden that gives us a sense of pride when we pull into the driveway.

Digging Tools

I love a wooden handle! It makes your gardening tools feel more natural and somehow more connected to the earth as you dig.

With ergonomic handles and the perfect size and weight, each piece comes in so handy for planting bulbs like paperwhites and garden containers filled with annuals.

5 piece set includes trowel, transplanter, cultivator, weeding tool, and hand cultivator.

Dandelion Pullers

This has proven to be one of the most useful tools in our garden tool kit! Like it or not, weeds are a part of life… and the easier we can get them out, the better!

Grampa’s Weeder

The ultimate! We love this thing for dandelions.

This comes in handy because it reaches directly into the dirt to pull the weed at its root. It helps keep them from coming back by digging the full root from below the earth!

Pruning Shears

These are my favorite garden pruning shears! I used them as garden clippers for pruning back lightweight branches, as well as roses, thicker perennial stems, etc.

With reinforced blades and an ergonomic handle, these can even work for floral design! Learn how to be your own florist here.

Garden Hose Nozzle

These are a utilitarian item that can make you so happy when you’re watering your plants, so why not make it beautiful, too?

Hose Nozzle

Yes, even your hose can be absolutely beautiful – and at a price comparable to the yellow plastic versions, why not?
