Stocking fillers and secret Santas

Great gifts for gardeners for under £10!

The best Christmas presents are not (necessarily) the most expensive ones but those into which some thought has gone.  To give you a hand this year, we’ve thought about some of the lovely and useful things we have in Centre which we think other gardeners will really appreciate but which won’t break the bank.  So whether it’s last-minute shopping to help fill a stocking or you’re stuck for a ‘secret Santa’ gift, we think we can help.

Robin on heart stake £ 9.99

We’ve got a selection of ornamental stakes and feeders in stock at the moment but this adorable Robin seems to be the most popular.  Standing about 1 metre high and with a sturdy double prong for pushing into a border or pot, he will brighten any gardener’s day.  Some natural weathering may occur as he sits outside.

(We are just waiting for someone to send us a photo of a real Robin sitting on him!)

Gardening gloves from £ 5.99

What gardener doesn’t need gardening gloves!  Spares for wet jobs or when your current pair need a good wash are always useful to have in stock.

As well as a range of sizes, colours and prices, our selection includes everything from light cotton gloves, durable work gloves and water-proof gloves, so we think we’ve got all gardening eventualities covered!

Kneeler pad £ 2.99

Small and unassuming this kneeler pad might be but think of the aches and pains it could save for anyone lucky enough to receive it as a thoughtful gift! 
Made of durable foam, it will dry out and brush off quickly ready for next time.  And at such a reasonable price, too.

Selection of bird feeders from £ 5.99 

Garden birds are the gardener’s friend, helping to keep aphids and other pests in check.  Not to mention the friendly Robin or Blackbird who follows your digging to check for juicy worms!

Encourage them to visit gardens and balconies, particularly over the winter when natural food stores are low, with any of our feeders and bird food mixes.

Butterfly hanger £ 7.49

Most of us love something that catches the light in our gardens or hangs over a hand rail and this lovely butterfly is just the thing.
It is guaranteed to brighten any garden or windowbox, even on the darkest of winter days.

Owl ornament (indoors or outdoors)  £ 7.99

Toowit?  We think this cheeky little chap would ‘woo’ anyone!  Standing about 6 inches high, he is made of a frost-proof, partially glazed terracotta so is weather-proof to stay outside all year.  However, we think he’s cute enough that he would earn his keep indoors too.

Gift vouchers

If we haven’t inspired you yet, how about some gift vouchers to let the recipient choose their own present?

We have both Hambrooks own vouchers (for anyone who lives locally to our Titchfield Garden Centre) but we also have National Garden Scheme vouchers, redeemable in 1,400 centres and nurseries across the UK, if you need to send them further afield.

Paper vouchers start from just £1 value each so they can be pocket-friendly too!

N. Haggard 20 September 2022

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how delighted I am with my new garden.

Jon, my designer, listened to my ideas and delivered on everything I asked for. I wanted something different to any garden I’d had before, no lawn, no landscaping but packed with plants. He designed such a lovely secret garden, around a statement tree. And I have to commend him for his unwavering patience! I changed my mind a hundred times but never did he give me the impression that he was losing patience with my endless indecision. And my confidence in him led me to place an order for over £10k.

My landscaping team, Blade and Tony, were exceptional, from their work ethic, skill and knowledge, to the way they dealt with me, the customer. My standards are very high and I couldn’t fault them.

All in all, a very professional team of people. And it showed that they all care. I’m over the moon with the finished result. I will send you a before and after photo. Thank you so much.

A delighted customer.

My front garden has been transformed by Andy and Bradley who both worked incredibly hard and I am delighted with the result. Andy had the vision and skill to turn my idea into reality and I can't thank him enough.

C. Haig Sept 2021

We recently had our garden landscaped by Hambrooks and I just wanted to pass on my thanks, not just for the outcome - which is superb - but for the professionalism of all the staff involved on the job who are all a credit to you company. Mike, Dave, Les and Adam.

H. Sharp Sept 2021

I just wanted to let you know how delighted I am with my new garden. Melanie was a delight to work with and the ideas she had have worked perfectly. Also Sheldon laid the patio beautifully and him and Dave were a pleaseure to have at my house. Quiet workers and polite.

B. Rendell April 2021

I would like to say how delighted we are with the work carried out. Mel, Paul and Tony all worked very hard, they totally took on board the specific need relating to safety as well as the general garden issues. Paul and Tony were excellent at consulting and discussing with me what I felt best in terms of the brief and adjusting if and as necessary, constantly pleasant and polite to deal with. Mel had picked up on particular issues from the first consultation and offered valuable advice. The outcome means a great deal less worry for me going forward.
Altogether a very positive experience and outcome which I would not hesitate to recommend to others.

Stephen March 2021

Dom and Adam's work (garden maintenance) is greatly appreciated. Dom really listened to everything we discussed very carefully and went out of his way to understand and then act upon that discussion. We are extremely pleased with the work done - both to the pond and pyracantha.


We have been coming to Hambrooks for years and it's our favourite garden centre because of its friendly helpful staff and a great selection of plants and trees and the garden design ideas.

“We wanted to write and say how pleased we are with our low maintenance garden makeover. We are very impressed with the attitude of your staff who were prepared to listen to our requirements. Your team John and Rick brushed up and left everything tidy at the end of the day. We now have a garden we can manage and it looks great. THANK YOU HAMBROOKS.”

Mr & Mrs Venables, Southampton. April 2019

“Dear Josh & Mike We just want to say you both did a brilliant job of designing our garden along with the guys who did the work who were amazing. A few weeks on its looks even better now some of the plants are blooming. Thank you!!”

Mr & Mrs Gazzard, Winchester July 2019

“To James, John & Rikki. Thank you so much, we are delighted with our new garden. We really appreciate the attention to detail, the high quality workmanship and the standard of the finished project. We are amazed at how John & Rikki resolved the difficulties of the site and by the quality of their craftmanship. It was a pleasure to work with them and thank you for making our ideas into something we will enjoy for years to come.”
