Garden Holiday Gifts

If you have a gardener on your gift list, you might want to get them gardening tools this holiday. Though you may think it an odd gift to give for the holidays, you will find that they will love that you thought to get them something they might need. A gardener is always in need of new stuff, and there are always new things on the market that they may enjoy getting as a gift on any special occasion.

Gardening tools can range in price from a few dollars to a few thousand dollars. Since you probably aren't going to buy something for a few thousand dollars, you might want to stick to the lower end of the totem pole. Those lower priced gardening tools are the ones they need to replace the most often, however, so they really are the way to go. Tools break, rust, or just plain bend sometimes, and they are things that get replaced often. These are items that are also easily lost, or may have been borrowed by neighbors and never returned.

An example of some of the most popular gardening tools might be a watering hose. Though you may think they must surely have a hose already, do you know if they have one that they like? Are they having problems with it? Do you know that there are new kinds of hoses on the market? There are, and these gardening tools seem to be improving as they years go by. You can get flat hoses, and even accessories that make using and storing a hose much easier. Some help with storing the hose by rolling it up, and there are also guides that stop a hose from running over the flowers and veggies as you pull it through the garden.

Other gardening tools you may want to consider are kneeling pads or perhaps a storage unit. When someone has a lot of gardening tools, they need somewhere to hang them. You can find organizers rather easily, and they can work in almost any shed or garden. You may already know if they have one of these, and if they don't, you have just thought of the perfect gift. Just make sure it fits into their storage space. If you aren't sure, just look around and see what is going on. If you see a mess of tools and supplies scattered about, they need the gift of organization.

If you still can't decide, I know for myself, a another good garden book is always a delight to receive. Nothing like curling up by the fire on a cold winters night dreaming of spring.
