If you’re struggling for what to buy beloved friends and family for Christmas, then here’s some suggestions that might just help you!

Sarah Raven Garden Goodies (UK)


Writer, broadcaster and teacher, Sarah Raven has put together a lovely selection of garden gifts, with everything ranging from tools, gardening kits, clothing, unusual see mixes and much, much more.

Garden Water Features, Statues and Planters (USA)


A really wide selection of fountains and water features to suit most tastes. There’s a good mix of traditional and modern styles in all their products from fountains to planters. If you’re looking for something fun, I will admit to having taken rather a shine to the meditating Zen frog!


LED Planter Lights (UK)

I really love these clever LED planters. By day you have a stylish planter and by night, a stunning living light. A great way to light up dull corners on your patio, deck or by the front door and add a contemporary touch.

Cookery and Flower Arranging Workshops (UK)

Sarah-Raven-CoursesThis is another one from Sarah Raven. If you are looking for the ultimate gift, you can spend the day with Sarah at Perch Hill in Sussex. She will show you how she does her amazing flower arrangements or prepare some sumptuous dishes. Very reasonably priced courses in a lovely location.

iPad-garden-desing-coursesOnline Garden Design Courses (Worldwide)

Having mentioned someone else’s wonderful courses, it would be remiss of me not to mention my own! Any of the online garden design courses or workshops can be purchased as a gift and instant access sent to the recipient for Christmas. Instructions on how to transfer a course as a gift are in the welcome email on purchase. All courses come with a 60-day money-back guarantee.

Please note: On some of the gift ideas above, I receive a small commission if you purchase through my link, this helps keep me sufficiently supplied with mince pies over the festive season! Please also note, that I do not have direct experience with the companies listed above, so do buy at your own discretion.
