If you’re stumped on what to get the gardener in your life after researching numerous gardening gift ideas, you might want to consider buying an indoor herb garden kit for your loved one. Indoor garden kits are a simple way for both pros and those lacking a green thumb to grow their favorites herbs (and vegetables too, like this cucumber kit).

Stocked with everything they’ll need—including seeds, soil, and grow lights—these kits are a gift that keeps on giving (giving fresh herbs, that is!). For those who live in homes or apartments with limited space or in areas affected by freezing temperatures, indoor garden kits are the solution to always having fresh herbs on hand.

While the biggest issue for indoor gardens can be the amount of sunlight, the one thing to remember is placement—south-facing and west-facing windows work best for indoor plants. Not much maintenance or care is needed with these kits, just be sure to check water levels often and remember that patience is a virtue. (Waiting for the plants to sprout is half the battle.)
