Ah, spring! He raised! Gardeners (and budding gardeners –
no pun intended) started searching for a weed-free lawn, or
generous garden. But if you are looking for gifts for someone with
a green thumb (or someone with green thumb envy), consider the
the situation first.
Some people think gardening is a thankless job. Others see it as
relaxing. Some will see it as an exercise, and still others consider it
it is art. Some people have the magical touch in the garden while
others could not grow mold if they tried! This is important when
considering gardening gifts. You have to know if you should give
something to make gardening easier, more fulfilling, more
challenging or more fun.
For those people who see it as a thankless job, gardening simply adds more
items in the endless to-do list. In this case, it is necessary
consider gardening gifts that will make these outdoor chores easier,
faster and less annoying.
Power tools and aids for storage and organization usually fall into this
category, together with the ever popular garden tractor. A leaf
blower / vacuum cleaner can make cleaning a breeze (again – no pun intended).
The same can be said for a pressure washer. Heavy work is done
easier with a wheelbarrow or construction trolley. And organize a collection
of garden tools is simple with a bench or a canopy. Other ideas
includes a convenient watering timer.
If your gift recipient loves gardening as a hobby, we recommend it
take a look at gardening gifts that can bring more satisfaction or
outdoor fun. They would benefit from a magazine
subscription such as “Garden Design” or a gardening book (“Front Yard
Gardens: Growing More Than Grass “) to help cultivate their ideas.
Garden enthusiasts love to sit and enjoy hard work,
therefore garden furniture and accessories would also be an excellent gift.
And let’s not forget that the gardener wants to be: those we love that
I just can’t keep that plant alive – whose thumb isn’t really
green at all! Start with an instruction book like “Lawn Care For
Dummies “or” Encyclopedia of Taylor’s garden plants “and complement
the one with some basic gardening tools or accessories. These types of
gifts would also be great for first-time home buyers.
For the gardener who already “has it all”, you might want to consider
something a little more unique, like an indoor, solar growing light
trampolines or a cascading fountain. And if you are not
unsure what to get, there is always a gift certificate or gift card.
