Aug 17, 2007
It's the holiday season and you want to buy a special gift for your gardener. This is the prefect time for a gardener's gift as he will be able to visualize and plan what he wants to do with it before the onset of spring when he can actually use it. You can lots of options from your local hardware or home goods stores but these days it is even easier to just go online and buy the perfect gardener's gift right at home.

You can buy fancy gifts, which look nice and pretty but it is advisable to go for a practical gift for your gardener, which he can utilize readily. These can be anything digging or planting tools, garden hoses, to even shovels or trowels.

To make your gift innovative and different, you can combine a number of gift ideas and put them all in a single basket instead of spending on one expensive gift. This makes your gift thoughtful and personal. The basket can include an assortment of gifts like gloves, fertilizer, twister ties, rain gauge, disposable towels and even medication. You could also give a yearly calendar for suggestions on the best time to plant fruits, flowers, plants and vegetables.

Books are always the best gifts received. Gardening books on the different types of vegetables, flowers, formal gardening, plants, soil, annual and perennial gardening, are some ideas that you can peruse.

If your gardener loves butterflies or hummingbirds gift him with various flowers or hummingbird feeders that invite them to the garden.

Garden stones in different colors, shapes, sizes make great gifts. Hand made garden stone kits or self-inscribed stones can make this simple gift extremely special.

Fertilizers, water sprinklers and sturdy boxes for gardening tools in different shapes and sizes are traditional ideas but are still popular among gardeners.

Colorful gazing balls of different sizes and materials making gardens look bright and interesting. Along with a gazing ball holder the gazing ball makes an exiting gift for the gardener who loves to adorn and beautify his garden.

Gardeners also value wind spinners and flags, which are very useful in the garden. There are a range of flags and spinners available today, giving us the freedom of choice. You have the choice of giving a set of flags, which can be changed at every season, giving a different look to the garden every time. Spinners are available in rainbow colors, which make it look very bright.

Gardeners also love exotic and rare plants. For instance amaryllis exotica, London tulips, rare herbs, gingko tree and so on.

Statues of different things, such as angels, birds, Gods and so on also make great gifts. Birdbaths that can also be given as a gift, makes the garden look very innovative and unique.
