1. Mini composter

We all have the best intentions when it comes to making compost piles, however they are usually located in a hidden part of our gardens, far away from our back doors, meaning they rarely get used. Encourage your friends to get back into composting by treating them to a table top composter. This can be kept on their kitchen worktop, in their utility room or by their backdoor. All they need to do is simply pop in the bits they want to turn into compost, wind the handle and wait. Once their compost is ready they can use it on their garden to nourish their plants and trees.

2. Handmade bird house

If your friend or family member loves gardening, then it is a safe bet that they will love nature and birdlife too, so why not treat them and their feathered friends to a handmade bird house? Today bird houses come in all shapes, sizes and colours. You can even have them custom made and engraved specially for the recipient. Whilst providing a handmade home for the birds, the birdhouse will also add a charming and rustic feel to your friend or family member's garden.

3. Hand tool sets

If you know someone that has just got into gardening or someone who has been using the same tools for donkey's years, then you may want to consider treating them to a brand new hand tool set. Most hand tool sets feature three tools - usually a spade, fork and trowel. Many of them have handles featuring beautiful designs and come complete with a carrier case. This is sure to be a gift than any green fingered gardening enthusiast will love.

4. Gardening course

Whether you know someone who has just got into gardening or think that your friend would love to brush up on their skills and knowledge then why not pay for them to go on a gardening course? There are gardening courses taking place all over the UK, suitable for all levels of capability. Whilst learning about different types of plants, soil conditions and tools, gardening courses also enable participants to pick up tips from professionals which they can use to improve their own gardens.

5. Gardening gloves

Today gardening gloves come in all sorts of designs, colour and styles, so you needn't worry about the present being dull or boring.
