Gardening gloves, gardener's t-shirt, and a homesteading mug

If that special someone you love is deeply in love with their garden, finding them a gift this Valentine’s Day won’t be too hard at all. Anyone with a passion for growing food or flowers is more likely to be impressed with the simple things in life – and that’s great for anyone wanting to find them a gift. But, in case you need a little inspiration, check out this list of fun Valentine’s Day gift ideas.

1. Blooming Lollipops from Amborella Organics

These handmade lollipops satisfy the sweet tooth and the desire to grow herbs. The sticks contain seeds, including sage, lavender, basil, and thyme, so they can be planted when your loved one is finished enjoying their tasty treat.

Amborella Organics also carries a line of immunity boosting lollipops that contain elderberry, astragalus, cinnamon, and ginger for those who are interested in staying healthy while indulging their sweet tooth.

2. Gardening Books and Manuals

If your sweetheart is interested in creating a healthy garden that produces high yields of nutrient-rich, organically grown foods, “The New Organic Grower: A Master’s Manual of Tools and Techniques for the Home and Market Gardener” by Eliot Coleman is a must-have. It has inspired home gardener’s and market growers around the world.

3. Seed Starting Supplies and Kits

By Valentine’s Day, your gardener is getting ready to start certain plants indoors to give them a head start. Perhaps they’ve been wanting to add a heat mat or a grow light to their setup, but they’ve not taken the plunge yet. It’s time for you to be their hero. There are quite a few choices when it comes to grow lights, though, and it can be confusing, since some lights on the market are for specific growth stages and are meant for commercial agricultural setups. For home growers who are simply trying to start their seeds before the average last frost date, any product with a T5 bulb with 6400K color temperature, which mimics daylight, is all you really need.

Your gardener may also need some of the basic supplies for starting seedlings, including trays without drainage and the cell packs to sit in the trays.

4. Gardening Tools and Equipment

Every gardener needs good tools, whether it’s a basic, high-quality set of hand tools or a pair of gardening gloves to protect their hands while they work. These things might not seem like the most romantic gifts, but if your love bug is passionate about gardening, you’ll be speaking in their love language.

5. Garden-Themed Clothing

If gardening is part of what defines who your loved one really is, then they may be pleased as punch to receive clothing that let’s them show off their personality. This is the part of this article where I shamelessly promote the line of gardening t-shirts and other apparel available in our brand-new shop Cedar Swamp Homestead Apparel & Home Goods. From now through February 1st, you’ll find many of our items on sale.


If you’re not sure what your loved one would like wearing best, we also offer digital gift cards starting as low as $10.
