2. Metal garden ornaments
For inspiring garden gifts, look no further. These beautifully crafted vintage-style metal birds add instant character to any garden. Pheasants and cockerels are brimming with old world charm while bright, modern peacocks and flamboyant flamingos brighten up borders, balconies, patios or even conservatories.
3. Festive indoor plants
The festive season just wouldn’t be the same without these stunning indoor plant favourites. From azalea ‘Christmas trees’ smothered in red or white blooms to an unusual-coloured poinsettia in a decorative pot, these popular plants make stylish gifts that will brighten up any home. For a fantastic Christmas table centrepiece, an amaryllis bulb in a golden globe is a real show stopper!
4. Patio planters
Decorative outdoor planters are always a popular gift. Beautiful, practical and designed to last a lifetime, these thoughtful presents provide many years of gardening pleasure. Our weathered iron planter clicks together in seconds and lends a contemporary edge to a balcony or patio. Eco-friendly growers will love our collection of Sonata planters made from recycled tyres. And for something a bit unusual, a patio pond kit allows keen gardeners to try their hand at growing three different aquatic plants without having to maintain a full-sized pond.
5. Grow your own gifts
Fruit and veg growers never have enough space, so a charming, 1940s-style raised bed would be gratefully received! Made from durable, weatherproof Zincalume® steel, these vintage beauties come in a choice of colours and sizes. For a fascinating project on a smaller scale, a windowsill mushroom kit is the perfect way to extend the kitchen garden. And what better way to brighten up a patio or outdoor seating area than with this collection of four dwarf fruit trees? Plant them in large containers where they’ll reach just a metre tall!
6. Fairy garden gifts
Perfect for transforming any garden into a place of enchantment and wonder, these hand-painted ornaments make a wonderful quirky gift that children and grown ups will adore. Choose from a rosy red apple fairy house, a yellow pear-shaped fairy house or a sweet strawberry fairy house to add a splash of colour by day and a magical glow by night. Each of the ornaments is fitted with a solar LED light to bring your night garden to life.
7. Gift vouchers
If, after all these ideas you still can’t decide on the perfect gift, then say Merry Christmas with a Suttons e-gift card. Available in a choice of designs, you can add your own personal message and choose the value required.
We hope this has given you plenty of great gift ideas. And the best news is, if you choose presents from our Christmas gifts range, you only pay P&P once, no matter how many gifts you send! Take the stress out of Christmas shopping with Suttons.
