If you are looking for the best enchantments for shovels in Minecraft, we recommend the following enchantments as the best ones for the shovel in Minecraft.
- Silk touch
Starting with efficiency, we recommend using it because the enchantment will increase the speed in which you can mine blocks. Along with this, silk touch can be useful to get blocks that break down when mine such as gravel. The reason why is instead of destroying blocks, you will mine and get the whole block instead, thus making it pretty useful for getting clay blocks and more.

After silk touch, fortune would bet the next best enchantment to get as it will increase the drop rate in which items drop from blocks. Because of this, it makes it a go-to enchantment for both shovels, axes, and pickaxes.
Also, if you want flint, we highly recommend enchanting your shovel with fortune. That said, In addition to the three enchantments we have listed in the guide so far, you can also add the following enchantments as welcome additions to your tool.
Mending is another useful enchantment that will allow you to use orbs of experience to repair your item. Overall, mending is a pretty useful enchantment and can be even more so when combined with unbreaking.
Unbreaking is a wondrous enchantment for any item, as it increases durability and will help you keep using whatever item it's on. For that reason, it's always worth considering throwing it on any weapon or item you plan on using a lot.
