Garden Tea Break Hamper
This is a gardening hamper with a twist! Rather than including gardening products, this hamper is perfect for people looking to unwind after spending time in their garden. It is packed full of British products; once they've spent a day in the outdoors they'll love settling down to afternoon tea with baked apple and custard biscuits with a slice of Dundee cake. The handmade soap and hand cream are also perfect for hard-working hands that have spent a day in the garden, and the scented candle is perfect for unwinding after a long day.

The Gift Box
This gardening hamper from The Gift Box Store would make a great gift for any gardener. It would be especially great for Mother's Day or Christmas. The set includes a garden fork, a trowel, gardening gloves and two scented candles in a decorative gift box. The floral pattern on the tools makes them really distinctive, so they're less likely to get lost amongst the flower beds. This is the perfect gardening hamper for someone who will be spending long days in the garden and then wants to come indoors to unwind.
