Is it too early to mention Christmas? Probably, but just in case you’re thinking about it already, have a birthday coming up or fancy treating someone special who loves gardening we thought we’d put together the perfect gardener’s gift guide!
Our online shop is packed full of great gift ideas for anyone who loves to potter around in the garden, from practical items to luxury bits and bobs – there’s something for everyone.
To help you put together the ideal gift basket or Christmas stocking (or perhaps you just fancy treating yourself!) here is our gardener’s gift guide:
Hard-working hands are a inevitable product of avid gardening, so help keep those mitts soft, soothed and smelling beautiful with one of our 100% natural and deeply moisturising hand creams.
We’ve got a scent to suit everyone, from summer burst to fill your nostrils with warm, floral aromas, to the more unisex scents of citrus or lavender.
The essential oils we use in our hand creams aren’t just for smell though – read all about their beneficial properties in our blog ‘Essential Oils & Why We Use Them’ to discover the right one for you.
How about something that can be put to good, practical use? Our beeswax and carnauba furniture polish had to get a mention in our gardener’s gift guide, for the all important finishing touches on wooden garden furniture, or maybe even woodworking projects that get created in the garden!
This superior quality polish is exactly what you need for enduring protection and shine. Your gardener in mind will love this useful addition.
It’s not at all unusual for people who love being in the garden to have a keen interest in bees – they do help flowers and plants flourish after all!
There are endless benefits to beekeeping, for us as individuals as well as the planet, so taking up beekeeping is a fantastic thing to do.
Point your loved one in the right direction for getting started with this invaluable book for beginners, ‘More Beekeeping Hints for Beginners’ by Ann Middleditch.
The odd scrape, scratch and sting comes hand in hand with regular gardening, so including one of our healing ointments in our gardener’s gift guide was essential. Speed up the repair process with just a small dab of your chosen ointment – a little goes a long way.
For really impressive healing results, try our honey and oat ointment with added Propolis. Propolis is absolutely fantastic for fixing up any minor wounds: you can read all about it here.
Once it’s time to pack up and come inside, clean up in luxury with one (or a selection of) our gentle honey and beeswax soaps. Suitable for even the most sensitive skin and containing no less than 8% honey and 8% beeswax from our own hives for a luxurious experience, our soaps are a real treat.
Available in a wide range of natural scents and hand-wrapped in colourful, waxed paper, making these a great addition to our gardener’s gift guide.
It’s hungry work slaving away in the garden, so revive with a cup of tea and a slice of toast slathered in our delicious, mild honey.
You may have noticed that we’re pretty proud of our honey products and eating it has got to be of the best ways to enjoy our beekeeper’s and bee’s hard work!
Coming straight from our 1,800 hives in Northumberland and the Scottish Borders, it doesn’t get any better than this. A must have in the gardener’s gift guide.
