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:

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:
Who can have enough bird houses, bird feeders, and 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.
My favorite seed catalog is Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds & Renee’s Garden for vegetables and flowers, and Prairie Nursery & Prairie Moon Nursery for native 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)
