This blog post was written without any affiliation with any brands listed. It is simply a gift giving guide if you’re looking for a gift for a gardening lover.
Good gardening tools are an investment and any gardener is sure to be thrilled with a new tool! My favorite gardening tool brands are Felco for pruners and Dewitt for other hand tools. These tools make gardening easy and are hardy. I love the Dewitt hand towel, it’s lightweight and strong. Corona is a good choice that is better on the budget.
Books or Magazine Subscriptions:
Anyone who gardens is usually always looking for new things to learn about and things to inspire them.
A few of my favorite magazine publications:
Memberships to garden clubs or other places are a gift that provides through the whole year. Memberships can be purchased from national or regional garden clubs or societies or even local private institutions.
- American Horticultural Society
- Bernheim National Forest in Clermont Kentucky
- National Wildlife Federation
- Wild Ones
Bird Houses, Feeders, Wind Chimes:
Even though gardening is mostly put on a halt during the winter months, many gardeners plan ahead for next year’s garden. I always start planning my vegetable garden in January and order seeds early. A gift certificate to a local nursery or a seed catalog would likely to be appreciated when it comes time to buy seeds or new plants.
How can one go wrong in providing entertainment for someone? Giving experiences is great if you’re unsure what things a person already has and want to give something you know they’ll enjoy. Look for museums, special events, or places someone could go for a day trip.
Here in the Central Kentucky region this may be a ticket or gift certificate to:
- Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati
- Southern Lights display at the Horse Park
- Shaker Village tour or a class
- Kentucky Dinner Train
- KY State Parks to visit places like Carter Caves or Cumberland Falls
- Historical Homes
- Yew Dell Gardens
- Gardening Classes (at local nurseries, extension offices, garden clubs)
