This Christmas, what do you get the gardener who has everything?
Practically anything garden-related that came out within the past three years That's right: garden tools, gloves and convenience items are always evolving. You're going to be surprised how far some of the best-loved items have been kicked up a notch to make gardening more fun and rewarding than ever.
At the same time, certain things will ALWAYS be in style: quality, durability, and flexibility, to name three. This is especially true of work items for the garden hobby enthusiast.
And then again...how about something really different? It's so tough to decide, isn't it?
Never fear: here are six super ways to say "happy holidays" to that gardener in your life. Enjoy!
Love reading? Your favorite gardener probably does, too! Dig up the latest gardening Best Sellers on Amazon.
For extra flavor, find something that takes gardening to completely different levels. The Drunken Botanist is one series that's become a smash hit. Be creative with your book gift choice.
Tool belts never looked so good and fashionable! Check out different gardening tool carriers that are a match for your gift recipient's personality.
We love this one, 'cause, you know...it's tough. And pink.
Yes, the most basic workhorse set of tools in any gardener's toolkit. This tool set from Cate's Garden (yes, our little feature plug) features 4 tools built with high quality SK5 stainless steel heads and rustic ash wood handles.
Comes with a trowel, transplanter, weeder and cultivator, all in a box you can wrap up for under the tree!
So excited about giving a gardening gift that you're about to wet your plants? Then choose a fun, whimsical, or hilarious top for that Good Gardener on your Christmas list.
TIP: Larger is always better than too small. Go a size up when ordering a T-shirt if you're not sure of the recipient's size. She can always wear it as a fun night top if it's a bit on the loose side, and many blend materials shrink after the first wash.
People with special gardening considerations, such as arthritis, will benefit from ergonomic garden pruners (okay, yes, this is our product too!) Let's face it, MOST of us let the whole buying-new-tools thing go way, way past its expiration date with old, rusty tools sharpened one too many times.
Bring your Secret Santa recipient into the current millennium with some seriously "ratcheted-up" pruners that makes pruning easier than ever.
Tote along all your faves (including any of the gifts above!) in a pretty garden-themed canvas bag. Choose one that displays the recipient's favorite flowers or fruit.
Bonus: Add extra gifts inside it and wrap it all in a box for under the tree!

Rain is, well...water. So why use a rain barrel when you can just hook your hose to the outdoor spigot and get all that you need? If you're eco-conscious, you're probably already aware that water is not an infinite resource. And for some, filtered, piped city water is a monthly expense...
Around here, we talk quite a bit about compost. If you're not yet a compost convert, you might want to know exactly why you'd want to use your own compost. We think you'll be surprised at how this easy-to-create, natural product can boost your garden.
We love birdhouses. They offer shelter, protection, and for the humans that fill them with feed, something gorgeous to look at all year long. Bird feeders also attract pretty visitors and can be designed to offer a little shelter from rain or falling snow ...
