02 Dec Gift ideas for the Gardener in your Family
If you have a gardener in your life, then winter can be pretty dreary for them. Luckily the advent of winter, is also beginning of holiday festivities! If you’ve been racking your brains about what to get them this Christmas – look no further. Here’s a list of our top 5 picks for the green thumb in your life:
Grow Light Kit:
We live in Canada, where winters are long and daylight hours not so much. Whether your loved ones live in such conditions or have decided to grow plants indoors, giving them an LED grow light will be a life saver! LED grow lights are great because they consume less electricity, help you grow your plants year-round and can be customized based on the plants you’re growing.
Our personal favorite is the: TOLYS 1000W LED Plant Grow Light
Container gardening has grown in popularity over the last few years and for good reason. Not only do they look great and add a design element to your homes, but they’re also great for growing vegetables and fruits. This is especially true if you live in a smaller space or are looking to extend your existing gardening area.
Our personal favorite has to be: Mayne Planters
Now this one could be a standalone gift, or it also makes a great stocking stuffer for the special gardener in your life. Having the right pair of pruners can help with the strenuous task of trimming any overgrowth, without putting any stress on your wrists. Some features you want to keep in mind before picking up one of these include blade type, ergonomic handles, locking mechanism etc.
We love this one: EnduroPRO Titanium Pruning Shears
Window boxes really make a house feel like a home. Windows decorated with beautiful window boxes, filled with the freshest flowers and greens is such a pretty sight! Just like planters, window boxes are also functional and are great for growing your very own herb garden. Window boxes come in a wide range of designs, colors, materials etc. – so the options are endless!
Our pick would be: Mayne Window Boxes
This sounds crazy but just take a minute to hear me out. How many times have you treaded out barefoot or searched for your ‘least desirable’ pair of shoes before you go out to work in your garden? Now what if you owned a pair of shoes that you could easily hose off, was insulated if you live in colder weather and protected you from external factors like rocks and dirt? Revolutionary right?! A great pair of gardening shoes is a must have and you can choose which one you want to get based on your gardener’s personal sense of style!
We absolutely would get: Muck Boots Muckster
