Shopping for that one person in your life who loves gardening? I’ve struggled to find the perfect gift for my friend who happens to be a gardening yogi that loves to grow her own food and watch what she eats.
She’s simple, yet when it comes time to give her a present, I have no idea where to start. But that has since changed. Gardening t-shirts are a great, unique choice for a present. I know what you’re thinking: there’s nothing unique about clothes.
I would agree in most cases, but not this one. For example, my friend doesn’t serve GMOs (you know those nasty genetically modified foods) at her table. So something like the t-shirt to the right would be perfect!
How many times have you seen a gardening t-shirt like this? Probably not often – or ever especially if you don’t spend a lot of time shopping online. So, where do you even find gardening shirts like this?
Here are my favorite places to shop for unique garden tees.
Design By Humans
Design by Humans is a storefront that I have recently been introduced to by a friend. When I am on the site, I find the cutest, quirkiest shirts. The company sells more than just gardening-related apparel, but their gardening selection is adorable.
Here are a few of my favorites from the Design By Humans store. The t-shirt and artists are listed below from left to right.
- Wildflowers by Distinctly Design
- Plant Grow Harvest Eat by Below Normal
- Butterfly Tree by blags
Design by Humans offers:
- Unique designs from users
- User-based storefronts
- Color palate choices
- Free shipping over $50 worldwide
Artists from around the world produce “wearable art” on Design by Humans, so it’s a marketplace that supports artists with brilliant tees.
Amazon doesn’t need an introduction. When you shop on Amazon, you’re shopping on the world’s largest e-commerce site.
You can find anything on Amazon, including gardening apparel. Amazon offers:
- Free 2-day shipping (on most items)
- Fantastic customer service
- Tens of millions of items
- A robust review system
I bought this veggie garden t-shirt in a women’s medium. I was really happy with the fit. There are 2 styles in many of the t-shirts you find on Amazon – the Classic or the Slim Fit. Look to the end of the bullet points in the description to find the fit. I tried both and like the classic fit much better, especially for outdoor work. It looks super cute on and was form-fitting without being clingy. I’ve washed it a few times and it still looks great.
I choose Amazon for most of my shopping for a simple reason: confidence. I know if there is ever an issue, Amazon will do everything in its power to “make it right.” This means that they’ll often resend a product or accept a return if something’s amiss.
You’ll also receive fast, free shipping in most cases. Here are five of my favorite gardening t-shirts on Amazon.
Amazon has a great search function to help you find just the right saying for your shirt too. Select the Women’s Tops and Tees department, then type your keyword in the search bar. Some of the keywords I used to find the above shirts are: “garden”, “grow”, and “herb”.
Etsy is a great marketplace. I like Etsy because I am helping a lot of people make their dreams come true. Heck, if you had an idea for the perfect shirt, you can make it and sell it on Etsy, too. When you use Etsy, you’ll benefit from:
- Unique design
- Independent sellers with one-of-a-kind products
- An ever-changing inventory
- Fast shipping
Etsy also has a neat feature, offered on some seller pages, that allows you to request a custom order. You can fully customize a design in this scenario, so it’s perfect when you will do anything you can to have a truly unique gift.
The marketplace also allows you to view feedback, so you can choose to purchase from just trusted sellers. Oh, and the prices are great, too.
I Love Apparel
I Love Apparel is another great site for t-shirts, and their gardening section is super cute. There are hoodies, too which are great for the colder winter months ahead.
Here is a small sample of the top selling shirts in the garden section.
Discounts are the norm at I Love Apparel, and the store offers:
- Discounts on a majority of products
- A variety of sizing (even 4XL)

The I Love Apparel brand stands out with its selection of hobby tees with fun sayings. Most designs are available in multiple styles that include the adult t-shirt, ladies’ junior fit tee, or hoodie. Join the site’s insider club to get amazing deals, and leave a review after you purchase an item.
Coupon codes are updated often on the site, making it addicting to check for new deals and offers.
