This started out as a general gardener’s gift guide; however, I found lots of great handmade items on Etsy and decided to keep going.
Walnut Garden Dibble $18.00: I think I like this dibble more than my well-worn favorite. It’s made of a beautiful, salvaged dark wood and the price is very fair for handmade. I’ve thought of switching to a metal dibble, but the notches up the sides that mark inches are invaluable when planting bulbs.
Dandelion Blossom Necklace $15.00: In a word: mesmerizing.
Purslane T-shirt: One gardener’s weed is another’s lunch.
Hanging Bird Feeder $25.00: This hanging bird feeder is gorgeous, modern, and affordable, but if I hung it up at my place, the squirrels would have a field day. Perhaps you or your friend live in a squirrel-free utopia?
Cerulean Planter (Set of Five) $58: These planters are too tiny for anything more than a small cactus or succulent, but they sure are pretty. I would pair them with blue chalk sticks (Senecio archeri) or a tiny orostachys.
Ceramic Bud Vase $28.80: You won’t find this at Pottery Barn.
Porcelain Tea Pod Set $128.00: For the herb gardener who loves their tea.
Reclaimed Wood Seed Starting Trays DIY Kit (Pack of 10) $95.00: Within the last few years I’ve come around to seed starting in shallow wooden trays. I particularly like these for growing cut and come again salad mixes and arugula. They are also available individually if your gardening friend doesn’t need 10 trays.
Gardening Knife $55.00: A gardening knife is surprisingly handy. I really need to get one for myself. These are handmade from a recycled saw blade and old leather shoes. Strange, but also awesome.
