If you are looking for something more unique than chocolates or jewelry this Valentine’s Day, we've got you covered. From the Gardener who has it all, to newbies, those living in extra chilly climates, to kid's- check out our fun garden inspired gift guide!

The Gardener Who Has It All!

They have all the tools, a cute sun hat, printed gardening gloves, and everything else they need to spend time in the garden - but here are some other thoughtful gifts to consider.

Trees & Bees Donation

You may know that Tilly loves One Tree Planted. This holiday season we planted a tree for every customer. One Tree Planted is a nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation. Their mission is to restore critical forests around the world, one tree at a time. We also love a donation to the Pollinator Partnership, whose mission is to promote the health of pollinators, critical to food and ecosystems. There’s no better gift than helping to create a better future!

Fancy Watering Can

On a lighter note, we love the Haws Watering Can from Terrain. If you are lucky enough to live by one of their stores, we recommend stopping in to browse in person. They are beautifully curated and full of inspiring gardening knick knacks. The Haws Watering Can has a long spout and is so pretty it won’t look like clutter in your home! ($38)

Portable Outdoor Wine Table

A new way to enjoy your garden this summer - the portable wine table from Uncommon Goods! Grab a blanket and this table, which you stake in the grass or sand, and relax outdoors. The table holds two glasses, a wine bottle, and a plate - making it the perfect picnic accessory. ($58)

The Newbies in the Nursery!

These gifts are perfect for the loved one who wants to get out in their garden, but isn’t sure where to begin.

Gardenuity Gift Box

“Where Garden Inspiration Meets Ingenuity”. When we came across Gardenuity half our team ordered gift sets for friends and family right away. Gardenuity delivers everything you need to grow a garden and be successful. The best part is, your gift includes a “Grow Pro” membership, where the recipient receives guidance, on-call support, recipes, tips -- and even garden weather alerts specific to your area! We love the cocktail and taco toppings giftable garden sets! ($52)

Gardening Starter Kit

Sometimes a good gardening set is all that you need to get started outdoors. This Kit4Pro’s gardening set from Amazon will get the gardener (or wanna be gardener) in your life out in the yard this spring. The bag is durable and has a place for each tool, which will make storage and transporting around your yard easy. ($29.99)

The Cold Climate Couple!

For those in snowy weather climates, bring some garden-inspired gear into your home with these unique gift ideas.

The Sill

The Sill, the brand that has coined “Plants Make People Happy,” ships potted and ready-for-display plants across the country. Jump on the house plant craze and gift a beautiful Snake Plant ($33), Monstera Deliciosa ($62) - or if we’re going to get literal, the Hoya Heart Plant ($21) is a great way to say “I love you!”

Floral Canteen

Another great company founded by a husband and wife team, we love Rifle Paper Co for their amazing floral prints and cheerful accessories. This whimsical printed canteen keeps drinks chilled for up to 25 hours or warm for up to 12. A great gift for someone on the go. ($37.95)

For the Kids

Kid’s Terrarium

We love this build your own terrarium from Creativity for Kid’s. Kids can create their own eco-system and watch it grow. It doesn’t get any more kid friendly with cute animals to co-habitat and glow in the dark stickers to decorate and make it your own. Let your kids take charge and enjoy caring for it daily. ($12.99)


A birdhouse is a fun Valentine’s gift that won’t give your kids a sugar high and will continue to get them involved with nature. There are many cute craft birdhouses, like this paint-a-birdhouse on Amazon ($14.97), where the kids can create their own masterpiece to proudly hang outside. Or we also love options from Plow & Hearth (pricing ranges depending on design)- from basic tube feeders to fancy bird homes, they have something right for every garden.
