Gardeners are usually the easiest people to buy gifts for. They are constantly needing tools replaced and would be content with a bag of coop poop. However, I have put together my Top 5 Gift Ideas that are some of my favorites to give (and receive)!
1. Stainless Steel Garden Trowel from Wilcox All-Pro Tools
This is one tool I could not garden without! Useful for digging in hard or clay soil and for tight spots, such as replacing annuals in containers.
It's especially good for sedums & sempervivums, both shallow rooted but needing careful lifting. All stainless steel construction with a comfortable handle and really sharp 10" point!
2. Lee Valley Lightweight Garden Hose
I absolutely LOVE this hose and have 3 in my own garden. Lightweight and thin makes them easy to pull around the garden, while also making them a breeze to hang on a hose holder.
This garden hose is available in two lengths, 25ft and 50ft. It resists abrasion, punctures, and degradation due to UV exposure, ensuring years of reliable use.
3. Orbit SunMate Shower Hose End and Shut Off Coupling
A must have for your new garden hose is a shower head! You will need to purchase the on and off coupling attachment separately, but it's well worth it. I use these for all of my hand watering in the garden and like that I can adjust water pressure or turn on and off when I am far away from the spigot. The perfect accessory to the Lee Valley hose!
4. Garden Inspired Jewelry
A few years ago my mom gifted me with a pair of earrings from My Woolly Mammoth. I love the uniqueness of them. Hand crafted for the garden lover (or flower lover) that will be truly appreciated. The natural material is seated in a bed of extremely UV resistant Resin for a long beautiful life. All other metal connectors are made of nickel-free metals.
5. Rose (or any gardening involving brambles and thorns!) Gloves
As a rose gardener myself, I know the importance of having the right protection while tending the thorny beauties. Leather gloves are the best at leaving your arms unscathed. Especially good for extra thick canes like climbing roses that you have to reach through and wrangle to tie in.
I hope this list is helpful for your gift giving and even as suggestions or hints to your loved ones! Let me know what you think and which ones will be added to your list this year. Happy shopping and Merry Christmas!
