If you know someone who enjoys gardening indoors, these gifts are for them. Read our gift guide to find the best present for the indoor gardener on your list.
Elegant Hanging Wire Basket Planter
This delightful indoor/outdoor hanging planter is perfect for the indoor gardener who has already filled every windowsill with plants. We love the spherical wire design, which looks a bit different from your average hanging planter. It's excellent for growing trailing plants, as they can hang down through the bottom, but it also displays succulents beautifully.

OXO 3-Liter Good Grips Pour & Store Watering Can
This compact watering can from OXO is ideal for indoor gardening, and its unique design means that it doesn't take up much storage space either. It holds about three quarts, which should be plenty to water indoor plants without being too unwieldy. An avid indoor gardener is likely to already have a watering can, however, so this gift might be better for someone new to the gardening game.

Pruning Shears Extra Hardness Extra Sharp Garden Hand Pruners
Gardeners know that a decent set of pruning shears is worth its weight in gold. You might not need to do too much pruning when keeping plants indoors, but shears are still good to have on hand for when your rosemary bush has a growth spurt, or you want to take a cutting. This extra-sharp pair of shears has a comfortable ergonomic grip and can easily tackle any indoor gardening task.

Long Handle Gardening Tools
Even indoor gardeners need tools, but for obvious reasons, full-size tools aren't going to be of much use. This three-pack of mini gardening tools includes a shovel, spade, and rake, all of which are useful for loosening soil and repotting plants. Some people love the long handles, but others might prefer short-handled versions.

RL Flo-Master Handheld Sprayer
Some indoor plants need to have their foliage sprayed in addition to or instead of regular watering. As such, a good spray bottle is essential. This model is sturdy and durable with an adjustable nozzle that can deliver a jet of water, a fine mist, or anything in between.

Teabloom Flowering Tea Set
This unique set isn't your typical gift for someone with a green thumb, but we think it would appeal to the indoor gardener for a couple of reasons. The teapot comes with blooming teas that blossom into flowers when submerged in water—offering a striking visual for a flower fan. It also comes with a tea infuser that allows users to create their own loose herbal teas. With the infuser, the recipient could steep their own freshly grown herbs to create a delicious herbal concoction.

Miracle Gro AeroGarden Classic 6
The Miracle Gro AeroGarden Classic 6 is an interesting gift for the indoor gardener. It's essentially a soilless planter complete with LED grow lights, but it's so much more than that. It's a "smart" pot with an easy-to-use control panel that automatically tailors the amount and spectrum of the lighting. This can help create optimum growing conditions depending on what you're growing and whether you're focusing on speed or yield. It also reminds you when to water and feed your plants, so there's no guesswork involved. What's more, the setup is designed to grow plants up to five times faster than the conventional way. This model comes with a gourmet herb seed kit and an heirloom cherry tomato seed pod kit.
