Gardening Gifts for Green Thumbs
Cat Tobin

In need of a good gift for a friend or relative? A great solution is visiting the local hardware store. For that someone with a big green thumb, the hardware store is an endless source of options. So what are the best gardening gifts?

The best gardening gifts are directly parallel to the needs of the gardener. The best gift for one gardener may not be the best for another, so a little knowledge about your friend or relative's garden needs will be a definite help. Also be sure to know your budget. The most expensive garden gifts may not be the best ones, so if you are on a tight budget there are always garden accessories and clothing wear.

Gardening gloves, footwear and kneepads, may be bought in a variety of colors, texture, and material. Once again, consult the needs of the gardener in mind. Simply do your homework. The Internet is the perfect source for learning more about gardening or what tools do what. With that knowledge, finding the perfect gardening gift will be easy.

Pruning shears, hoes and a watering can will never lose their magic touch. Surely, with these hand tools, your friend or relative will appreciate how much you know he or she really is into gardening. And if you are on a smaller budget or you are just looking for a small gift, there are other gifts than tools. There is always the option to go with plants or seeds themselves. Plants or flowers or fruits or vegetables - going this route will prove to be a long lasting delight for your friend or relative. So if you doubt your friend or relative's need of additional tools, simply purchase plants or seeds. If you are sure the best gift is a tool, digging tools like rakes, shovels, pitchforks and spades are some of the basic tools used by professional gardeners as well as beginners. Automatic lawn mowers, electric cultivators, dirt diggers, hedge trimmers, brush cutters, or trolleys could provide so much ease to your gardener friend's daily routine. These are some of the most extravagant items and often these gardening machineries could serve well as wedding presents or house-warming gifts for the gardening enthusiast. Your gift could be as simple as water resistant garden gloves or a more expensive gift like an electric cultivator. When the recipient realizes you have given a gift that complements his or her passion, expensive or not, it would certainly become the best gardening gifts your friend or relative has ever received.
