Gardening Hand Tools
As you know I really appreciate good quality, well-made gardening tools. Particularly ones that are wood and stainless steel. The feel of these beautiful spades, forks, hoes and trowels is second to none, they are lovely to work with.
For the novice gardener in your life a set of these garden essentials cannot go amiss. Do you hear that your friends or family have lost, misplaced hand tools, around the garden? They get buried, composted, not too mention thrown out with the rubbish, recycled in error, find them their new replacements right here. As with most things the better quality ones do cost that bit more, but they do last a lifetime.
Harrod Horticultural have a large range of beautiful quality gardening hand tools.
Secateurs make great presents too and my recommendation is the FELCO range of secateurs and pruners. Swiss made with a lifetime guarantee FELCO are the best that money can buy and with their large range of secateurs for every type of pruning and cutting garden task, you will definitely find a suitable pair.
Check out my Best Secateurs Review for the most popular ones.
Cordless Garden Tools
I am a big fan of cordless garden tools and have written many reviews on the tools that I know and have experience of, so if you’re looking to gift cordless tools to some lucky recipient, look no further. You can find information and inspiration on my reviews page on valuable garden equipment such as:
- Lawn Mowers
- Robotic Lawn Mowers
- Leaf Blowers
These items make unusual gardening gifts for engagements, weddings and housewarmings. We tend to forget that newly-weds or couples setting up house together have to buy garden items as well as household items. So why not get them a useful garden gift? And while garden furniture or ornamental items may be more attractive and romantic, practical gifts such as equipment needs to be considered too and I am sure will be most appreciated.
Summerhouse and Greenhouses
What an amazing gift this would be for the green fingered love of your life. Close family members would seriously appreciate such a gift too, whether for a wedding gift, special anniversaries or as a festive seasonal gift.
As summerhouses, greenhouse and sheds come in a wide range of shapes, sizes and quality there is bound to be something to suit every garden size and wallet size.
SHOP HERE now at Garden Buildings Direct, the gift of giving a new shed or summerhouse is just a click away.
For someone who loves propagating, nurturing and growing plants this would be the perfect gift.
They may have need of one at an allotment for example, what better way to feed and grow their love of gardening than to help them with such a gift as this.
Direct sheds have a lovely choice of garden buildings to suit every budget.
Gardening Gifts That Keep on Growing
- Planters and Pots
- AeroGarden Herb Growing Kit
- Royal Horticultural Society Membership
- Gardening monthly subscription boxes
- Gardening magazine subscriptions
Plants and Roses
Trees, shrubs, roses etc are always welcome as gifts for garden lovers. Choose ones that have all year round interest so that they become a much loved feature in a garden.
Or roses can be chosen with specific names for special occasions, subjects or the persons name. For example anniversary roses such as silver wedding, golden wedding make nice commemorative gifts that the couple will derive pleasure from for many years.
Planters and Pots
Planters, containers and raised beds kits are truly great gardeners gifts. With this one I do try to keep within the recipients garden theme as something completely different to their preferred scheme might not be a good choice.
Planters make lovely gifts whether they are planted up or you leave them empty ready for your friend or family member to plant them as they wish.
Aero Garden Herb Growing Kit
I love these, they are a unique and efficient way of growing herbs and veg in your kitchen. They offer an interesting introduction to hydroponics and produce an abundance of fresh grown produce all year round. Ideal for herbs, tomatoes and salad greens. They can also be used to grow houseplants and make an attractive feature for the kitchen, conservatory or lounge area.
