Gardener's Gift Guide

Updated on September 14, 2014

Perfect Gifts for Gardners

These items are some of my favorite gardening tools. A great collection of gardening tools and equipment can take a long time to acquire. Sometimes I have to save up to purchase items, so I'm always thrilled to receive gardening gadgets as gifts.

Gardening is a wonderful hobby, but it requires the right tools to perform a variety of tasks. Whether it is a holiday, an anniversary, a birthday, or just to let your favorite gardener know they are loved, gardening tools and accessories make great presents. To a gardener, they are better than sweaters, dinner out, or gift cards to the mall.

Gardeners are creative souls. Whenever they look out the window or see a seemingly neglected spot in the landscape, they start planning and considering how to improve the garden. Even more in the dormant months when they are anticipating the gardening season to come.

Gardening Gadgets They Wish They Had

Their are gardening tools and gadgets your gardener drools over, but would not splurge and buy for themselves. Here's what's on that "in my dreams" list.

A Gardener's World is in Bloom All Year - Treat Your Gardener

It is difficult to believe, even when it is snowy and cold, but the gardener in your life is busy thinking about the perfect garden. They don't have visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads, more likely the thoughts are more like a beautiful space for you and your family to entertain. Perhaps there is even an area in mind for a great vegetable or herb garden.

While the yard may look cold and stark to you, these months are great for planning and preparing for the year to come. Gardeners tend to jot down ideas on scraps of paper, or draw plans on napkins or backs of used pieces of paper. Come spring, many of these garden ideas will come to life.

This tool is great for dividing perennials. In addition, the tough blade is handy for cutting out stubborn patches of grasses which may have taken root in your garden or cutting woody stems and roots.

I couldn't do without my hori hori knife. Every summer I seem to find even more uses for this tool!

      @tobydavis: It will be a great way to help them smell the roses (or iris, lilacs...) in the summer!
