As we now approach the Holiday season full swing, it is time to talk a bit on finding those great Christmas gifts for your special gardener. Trying to find that perfect gift can be extremely challenging at times, so I decided to present twelve gift ideas that might be exactly what you were looking for. Hopefully, these gardening items will get your gift-giving engine started up and flowing with great ideas.
Here are twelve great Christmas gift ideas for your favorite gardener.
Aerogarden Space-Saver 6 with Gourmet Herb Seed Kit
The Aerogarden Space-Saver 6 is an ideal gift for the herb gardener in your family. You can grow many different types of herbs (including basil, oregano, thyme and many more) conveniently right in your kitchen all year long. You will save time and money by never needing to run to the market to buy fresh herbs. Plus, you know the herbs you grow using the Space-Saver 6 are fresh and organic because you grew them.
Prepara Power Plant Mini
The Prepara Power Plant Mini is similar to the Aerogarden, as it provides an easy-to-use method of growing fresh herbs indoors. It is a bit smaller than the Aerogarden, and typically can only hold one herb type at a time. So, if you have a family member that uses a lot of basil in their cooking, the Prepara Power Plant Mini might be just the right thing. It features a “set it and forget it” operation – once you have it set up, it does all the work of controlling water and nutrient application. You never have to touch it again. Just snip off the herbs as you need them in your kitchen.
Toro 43-Gallon Gardening Spring Bucket
The Toro 43-Gallon Gardening Spring Bucket is a must-have for any gardener. It is made from a heavy duty material that is mildew resistent and UV treated. That means you will get many years of use from it without mildew or sun damage. It can be used to store and collect yard debris, such as leaves and grass clippings, mulch, and compost among other things. The best part is it is completely collapsible for super easy storage.
Black & Decker Plant Smart Digital Plant Care Sensor
Although the Black & Decker Plant Smart Digital Plant Care Sensor is a mouthful to say, it is golden in the garden. This little device can be a lifesaver when trying to determine what is wrong with a plant, or for figuring out if a particular plant will grow in your soil type. It takes all the guess work out of gardening by supplying you with all the information you need to grow a fabulous garden.
Just plug the sensor in the soil where you want to grow something and it will gather information such as soil moisture, pH, nutrient availability and much more. This is the perfect Christmas gift for the novice, or intermediate gardener!
Contech Scarecrow Motion-Activated Sprinkler
If you have a gardener on your Christmas list that has an issue with rabbits, or deer nibbling on their greens, then the Contech Scarecrow Motion-Activated Sprinkler might be just what they need. This sprinkler provides a safe, humane method of deterring the varmints from eating away any garden. The motion sensor detects movement in an area then activates by firing a stream of water in the direction of the movement scaring off any would be bandits.
