Thinking about getting into gardening? Gather the tools you need to make it easier, more fruitful—and more fun—and add them to your registry.
We’ve all been spending a bit more time around home this past year. As spring warms up and summer is just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to think about spreading out a bit and getting outdoors. And that can even mean your own backyard (or balcony or porch).
Gardening is an ideal outdoor activity, whether it’s cultivating a vegetable garden or growing gorgeous flowers and other greens to display indoors. It’s relaxing, even meditative, with a feeling of accomplishment as you see the “fruits” of your labor.
For those who already love to get their hands dirty, or those who want to try gardening for the first time, you’ll want to get the right tools. And as couples increasingly lean toward nontraditional gifts to include on their wedding registries, garden-related items can be great additions.
Read on for our suggestions for wedding registry gifts, garden edition.
Dewit 3-Piece Tool Gift Set
For a simple set that accomplishes multiple tasks, this garden tool trio includes a cultivator, trowel, and fork, all designed to get the job done, whether that’s planting, digging, aerating, cultivating, or weeding. These tools are both strong and lightweight, making them effective and easy to use.
Bamboo Hanging Plant Stand
Adding a little greenery to your home decor is easy with this smartly designed hanging plant stand, suitable for indoors or out. The shelves are adjustable, so you can customize it to your plants and plant holders, and the hanging rod is great for ferns and other danglers. It also folds, so it’s easy to move as needed.
The secret to a thriving garden? Compost! If you’re serious about gardening (and sustainability), your registry should include a composter to turn your own kitchen and yard scraps into soil-enhancing compost. This one has two chambers, one to fill with fresh scraps while the other cures, so you always have a supply ready to go.
AeroGarden Harvest Elite
How to have your own garden-fresh vegetables year round? Grow them indoors! This stainless steel countertop garden will yield herbs, lettuces, tomatoes, and more all year long. The LED grow lights ensure just the right lighting, and the digital controls include fool-proof reminders for water and plant food.
Gardener's Harvest Basket
You’ve done all the work of growing those vegetables. Now bring the fruits of your labor indoors with this traditional gardener’s basket. It’s made of wire mesh, so you can hose off your harvest and leave the dirt outside, and it’s also great for toting gardening tools.
Personalized Garden Sign
If you two will be tending your garden together, why not put up a fun sign that expresses your flowers and veggies were “grown with love”? This sign can be personalized with your first names or your new family name, and the vintage look will make it seem like you’ve been gardening together for years.
Long Floral Garden Gloves
To spend hours in the garden without mucking up your hands and nails, you’ll need gloves. This pretty floral pair has extra-long cuffs to protect you from scratches, bugs, and sun during light gardening and heavier yard work, and they’re even machine washable.
Copper Watering Can
Combine practicality with decor with this handcrafted watering can. Perfect for outdoor gardens or indoor pots, it’s big enough to water several plants at a go, and the long spout means it’s easy to position right where you want it. The copper will age naturally to a beautiful patina, making it a pretty accent when not in use.
You’re not fostering all those flowers in your garden to not show them off! So make sure to have a suitable vase to display your beautiful blooms. This one combines textured white glaze with a ribbon of exposed clay at the top for a rustic look and feel.
