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 (or yourself). Indoor garden kits are a simple way for both pros and those lacking a green thumb to grow their favorite herbs.

If you’re a gardening novice, these growing kits offer everything you need to nurture a successful herb garden indoors. Many kits include seeds, soil, pots, and markers to help plant parents of every skill level achieve beautiful, healthy greens. 

Ideal for apartment dwellers and homeowners alike, these kits fit on windowsills and shelves; just make sure they get ample sunlight (south-facing and west-facing windows work best for indoor plants). They don’t require a lot of maintenance other than periodic watering, and you can monitor the water levels to ensure your plants aren’t too wet or too dry. If you’re concerned about the approaching cold temperatures and fewer daylight hours, you can always use a grow light to keep them healthy throughout the winter months. Just remember that patience is a virtue. (Waiting for the plants to sprout is half the battle.)
