Relaxing in the garden is the perfect and enviable way to relax and unwind especially when the sun is shining and the birds are singing. You could be taking in the sun’s rays while reading your favourite gardening book or magazine or just taking in the peaceful sounds of nature while digging a bed, pruning the roses or watering the flowers. Having a great garden, allotment or space is the secret to being able to relax and de-stress.
No matter what the size or shape of your garden be it for your parents, sister, brother, friend or even neighbour gardening gifts make the ideal present for all occasions. Having the latest accessories and garden gadgets will make them or you the envy of the entire neighbourhood!
Shopping for gifts for gardeners couldn’t be easier whether it’s gardening gifts for men or gardening gifts for women your local gardening centre is a haven of ideas as is the internet with websites to suit all, gardening tools alone could keep you in gift ideas for years. Remember a simple rule of thumb when giving gifts – give a present that can be used by the person you are giving it to. Not only will it be well received and appreciate but they will feel that you have put a lot of thought and effort into finding the perfect present for him or her.
Every Mother deserves a wonderful gift from time to time and if your Mom has green fingers, gardening gifts for Mom can put you in the good books and put a smile on her face. From gardening gloves to garden statues, garden sheds to garden gnomes,
or even getting personalised gardening gifts like a tool belt embroidered with her name or initials or tools with her name on them give that personal touch an added sense of caring. Of course gardening gifts wouldn’t be complete without plants, flowers are the most popular gift for woman so why not go a little bit further and present her with some seeds so she can plant that perfect rose and give it its own name.
Often a lot of people enjoy the garden but not necessarily gardening, like I said earlier relaxing or unwinding in the garden listening to the birds or just the peace and tranquillity getting away from the mundane chores. Choosing gardening gifts for men or gardening gifts for Dad can be harder so for that special occasion perhaps garden furniture will best suit his needs and aid in the time spent in the garden admiring his garden water features or garden statues that he or you have built up over time with the endless hours spend on and in the garden.
Probably the most unique gardening gifts that I have come across as of late are gardening holidays.
These are designed for people of all ages who have a great interest in gardening but not the best knowledge with the main emphasis on having a relaxing time chatting with people with a mutual interest rather that formal teaching. Visits are usually planned to local gardens – big and small, some open to the public others not, where you get a change to meet the owners or head horticulturists and pick their brains. If you have run out of ideas this will make an ideal
I could go on and just list a ream of ideas for him or her but we all have those nature loving friends or family who are happiest just pottering in the garden, for those special people they deserve a gift with a lot of thought and effort. Many regular gardeners are always on the lookout for new quirky garden accents such as garden ornaments or garden statues or an unusual knick knack to brighten up their garden or become a talking or focal point. Unusual gardening gifts might go along the lines of a sun dial, rice bag planters, outdoor wall clock, garden flags, a flower press, hanging tea light holder, metal or copper flowers, and weathervanes. Some unusual garden furniture might be hanging chairs or hammocks to outdoor giant bean bags I suppose it all depends what you class as unusual.
DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OR SHAPE OF YOUR GARDEN BUT MORE SO FOR SMALLER GARDENS HAVING A MAIN FOCAL POINT SUCH AS GARDEN WATER FEATURES OR GARDEN ORNAMENTS CAN REALLY SET YOUR GARDEN APART. IN TERMS OF A GARDENING GIFT THESE ARE BIG GIFTS SO IT HAD BETTER BE A SPECIAL OCCASION OR SPECIAL PERSON …..OR WHY NOT JUST TREAT YOURSELF. ONE OF THE BEST PRESENTS TO YOU COULD BE AN OUTDOOR HOT TUB. YES PLEASE.
I cannot believe that I have spoken about gardening gifts for this long and not yet mentioned the word BBQ – man’s favourite garden accessory. With the old stereotype of men as grill-masters still living on. But as it happens women put in up to 70% of the BBQ leg work – like buying the food and preparing the salad/food and then the men take all the glory by cooking it! Or in most cases burning it. BBQ accessories can make great gardening gifts for men.
