What do you get a Gardener?
I’ve been on the gardening, homestead journey for several years and there are several things I always want – flower seeds, bulbs, replacement garden tools, or canning supplies. But if you have already exhausted these ideas and need something fresh, check out these ideas.
New books, journals, insect repellants, snacks, or options to clean up after working in the yard are great for stocking stuffers, birthday gifts, or family gift exchanges.

Gardening Books for Winter
I love being able to eat right out of my backyard so anytime I get the chance to learn more about creating an edible landscape, I take it. This is a great new book that will teach me so much!
Out with the lawn and in with the food! That’s the battle cry of millions of modern gardeners who are not only looking to reduce the amount of time and energy they have to spend tending a lawn, but they’re also looking to improve the lives of their family, friends, and neighbors by supplying them with fresh, homegrown food. In the United States alone, 46 million acres of land are covered in turfgrass (that’s more acreage than corn and soybeans combined!). Imagine all the good that would come if that land were dedicated to growing food instead!Order on Amazon
Natural Insect Repellants
We use insect repellant every day on the farm so when I can replenish our supply with better products, I am always ready to do so. Here’s a new-to-me brand that I’m excited to use on our farm adventures.
Lemongrass Farms products are Made in the USA and formulated with the purest essential oils on the planet sourced from Berjé (suppliers of leading perfumes worldwide).
- TREK Insect Repellant – The first all-natural insect repellent that moisturizes and cools your skin!
- TREK Insect Repellent For Kids – The coolest bug spray on the block! Great for sensitive skin.
- SCRAM! Natural Fly Repellent – Create a “NO-FLY ZONE”! The first 100% all-natural fly repellent for outdoor dining.
Portable Hand Washing Supplies
We don’t have running water at our farm yet so we keep a well-stocked supply of all the things we need. Alcala Body wipes are perfect for when we get to working hard and want to clean up before we drive back to the house.
Made with 100% pure bamboo, our wipes are perfect for the gym, travelling, and nursing, as a quick and convenient shower alternative. Extra-large (10 x 10 inches) and strong enough to refresh where you need it most, but soft and delicate enough for your face and most sensitive areas. Perfect for the on-the-go with its shelf life of 2 years.Order on Amazon
You may remember a few years ago I added Suds2go to my farm kit. Over time the spring on the soap pump got sluggish and didn’t work right. I contacted the company and they replaced the pump part. I had no idea that you could easily purchase the replacement pump nozzle. This is a great product for any outdoor family and stays in our truck so we’re always ready for adventure.
What do you plan to get for the gardener on your list? I’d love to hear your ideas!
