Mother's Day Gifts for the Gardening Mom

Updated: May 2, 2022

If you have a mother who loves to garden, here are some great Mother's Day gift ideas that can be easily ordered right to her home or yours from Amazon. Maybe she already has some of these items but I'm sure, just like everyone, she would love to replace a few old items with these brand new ones! Being a mom myself who loves to garden, let me share with you a few items I have received as gifts and loved, or items I would love to get for Mother's Day.

1. Gardening Gloves

Gardening gloves are perfect for those times you want to work in your garden but also want to keep your hands clean so you can go out afterwards. These gloves are comfortable and durable and make a beautiful gift.

2. Garden Snips

My husband bought me a pair of these for my birthday last year and they are one of my all time favorite gardening gifts! I don't know what I ever did without them. I use them for snipping off unhealthy branches, cutting back, harvesting and deadheading flowers. They cost more than I would spend on myself, making them the perfect gift for the gardening mom! I have the Fiskars but I added the less expensive version as well.

3. Gardening Journal

Check out this beautiful printable notebook for keeping track of your garden! This digital notebook is easy to send to your mom this Mother's Day and she can print off as many copies of each page as she would like. It's the garden journal in which you never run out of room.

4. Watering Can

Somehow I can never have enough large watering cans. It's nice to have them handy in various parts of the yard so I can water flowers as needed. An extra 1 gallon watering can is a nice to have vs. a have to have, so not something I buy for myself.

5. Spray Nozzle

Spray nozzles don't seem to last forever (or maybe it's just me) and start to leak after a while. Your mom would likely love to have a brand new spray nozzle for watering her plants!

6. Trowel Set

Just like watering cans, I can never seem to have enough garden trowels. A good trowel is a necessity for the gardening mom. Once again, I love my Fiskars garden tools! They are great quality and last forever (or until I lose them).

7. Gardening Apron

A gardening apron is something I don't actually own, but would love to! I think it would be perfect for keeping my clothes clean in the garden, especially on those days I need to run out after, and maybe help from misplacing my garden tools. I betcha your mom feels the same.

8. Hummingbird Feeder

I'm taking a guess here that if your mom loves to garden, she also loves hummingbirds. I own this very hummingbird feeder and it brings me so much joy every time I see one of those beautiful, delicate birds taking a sip from it.

9. Gardening Coffee Cup/Mug

A gardener's coffee mug is again, something I don't own but would love to receive as a gift! It would combine two of my very favourite things, gardening and coffee.

10. Pruning Shears

When I worked at a greenhouse for many years, the Felco pruning shears were the coveted pair and we took very good care of them. I'm sure your mom would love to have a pair of these Fiskars or Felco pruning shears!
