Gifts For The Herb Lover On Your List

Gift Guide For Herb Lovers

By

We all have them; the friends who go nuts over garden shovels and packets of seeds (I am guilty of this myself). What in the world do you buy these people, when you may not have any idea where to start? I thought a short list of dreamy gifts that all herb lovers would appreciate is a great place to start. Here are my top 10 gifts for that special herb lover on your holiday shopping list!

1. Aerogarden

No herb gardener has enough pots. These pots are special, too. From one of my favorite businesses: Terracycle, these upcycled plant pots are not only made from recycled computer parts and other business equipment, they are also one of a kind decorated by inner city artists! What a great choice for both the ingenuity of design and the just plain usefulness factor.

4. Organic Potted Herbs in Rice Hull Pots

Many indoor gardeners struggle with their traditional hand tools or even kitchen flatware, to prune and harvest their indoor herbs. Try an indoor garden tool set, and see how easy tending to your windowsill garden can really be!

Here is a herb lover's gift that has it all: Beauty, usefulness and style. Another winner from one of my favorite garden suppliers; Potting Shed Creations has put together a lovely assortment of culinary herb seeds, growing instructions, herb stakes and much more. All of this is housed in a metal storage box and each herb seed has its own clear lidded metal compartment. Truly, a wonderful treat for any herb lover.

7. Fiskars Garden Bucket Caddy

Truly a must have for any herb gardener. For indoor use, store you hand tools all around the outside and use the bucket for neatly gathering all your trimmings. When gardening outside, add a padded seat(located at any hardware store) and you have a great spot to sit while you work on your herb beds. This is a unique item that will be sure to be a big hit!

8. Tabletop Grow Light

Another great indoor gardening idea: The tabletop grow light! This particular style works well with any decor and allows enough room for multiple kitchen herb pots. Fully adjustable, to keep the lighting at the correct height above the growing herbs, it is a must have for any indoor gardener.

9. Herb Companion Magazine
