11 Christmas Gift Ideas for Senior Gardeners

Below you’ll find great gifts for senior gardeners that’ll help them overcome obstacles and continue to garden despite not being as young as they used to be.

1) Kneeling Pads (by Gorilla Grip)

This quality kneeling pad is available on Amazon, and you can get it in several different colors.

2) Reversible Garden Kneeler/Seat

You can flip this upside down to use as a kneeling pad (and use the legs to help push yourself up), or you can use a seat.

Plus, it has pockets on the side for garden tools.

6) Gardening Tools with Ergonomic Grips

Fiskars also makes gardening hand tools with ergonomic grips.

This set is available on Amazon.

7) Watering Wand for Hanging Baskets

Melnor 65045-AMZ RelaxGrip Showerhead Watering QuickConnect Product Adapter, 33" Wand, GentleRain Shower

A quick connect watering wand like this 33-inch wand with a “Gentle Rain Shower” head can make watering plants and hanging baskets easier.

8) Raised Garden Bed

Jumbl Raised Canadian Cedar Garden Bed | Elevated Wood Planter for Growing Fresh Herbs, Vegetables, Flowers, Succulents & Other Plants at Home | Great for Outdoor Patio, Deck, Balcony | 34x18x30”

Instead of having to bend over to get to the plants, a raised garden bed bring the plants to you.

You could make a raised garden bed for a senior gardener by screwing together some lumber, or you can buy a raised garden bed kit like the one shown above.

9) Lightweight Garden Hose

Flexi Hose with 8 Function Nozzle, Lightweight Expandable Garden Hose, No-Kink Flexibility, 3/4 Inch Solid Brass Fittings and Double Latex Core

Consider a lightweight, kink-free garden hose for the senior gardener on your list.

Having a kinked hose can be so frustrating…and once they kink once, they seem prone to kinking again.

The one thing about this hose is that you need to be patient to allow the hose to expand once you turn the water on. As the hose gets pressurized with water it slinks and stretches as it expands…kind of looks like a snake. It’s weird looking, but it is a good lightweight hose.

10) Heirloom Seed Set

50 Packs Assorted Heirloom Vegetable Seeds 20+ Varieties All Seeds are Heirloom, 100% Non-GMO

Check out this set of 50 pack of heirloom vegetable and herbs seed packets (non-GM). Pretty cool set for any gardener.

11) Indoor Garden Set

GrowLED LED Indoor Garden, Herb Garden, Kitchen Garden, Height Adjustable, 20W Grow Light, Automatic Timer, Ideal for Plant Grow Novice Or Enthusiasts, Various Plants, DIY Decoration, White

An indoor grow light set-up like this from GrowLED allows senior gardeners to pursuit their gardening passion inside during the winter, or if they’ve moved into a place with no outdoor gardening space.

I hope this list has helped.
