10 Unique Gifts For The Gardening Guy
Guys love to putter around in the garden just as much as the gals, and when it comes it gardening gear, well. . . it’s no secret that boys love their toys. Whether you are in the market for a holiday gift, a birthday gift, a housewarming gift, or another type of gift, if you have a gardening guy on your shopping list, we’ve got you covered – here are 10 unique and memorable gifts for the gardening guy that are sure to be appreciated:
Beautiful and well-written books on every gardening and outdoor project imaginable are available at your fingertips. Is your gardening guy interested in vegetable gardening, vertical gardening, succulents, or roses? Amazon awaits. Perhaps he’s more of an outdoor kitchen, trellis building, tree house kind of guy? You’re all set there, too! And don’t forget to inscribe the book to mark the occasion and make it much more personal.
2. Gardening Gloves
Gardening gloves are an absolute must for any gardening guy who spends time digging, weeding, building, or accomplishing any otherwise impressive thing with his hands outdoors. Gloves are available in numerous materials, colors, and of course, sizes, but make sure to select a glove that is well-suited to his outdoor pursuits. If he’s a rose gardener, for instance, find a glove with an elbow-length gauntlet cuff and reinforced fingertips, so he doesn’t find himself in a thorny situation.
3. Bee Hive Starter Kit
If your gardening guy has ever expressed an interest in becoming a beekeeper, here’s your chance to get him started! Fully assembled, this starter kit has everything he will need to create quite a buzz, including two 6 5/8″ 8-frame medium hive supers w/ all the frames and plasticell foundations, one solid bottom board and cedar hive stand, one inner cover and copper garden top cover, one hive tool, one stainless steel 4×7 bee smoker and fuel, one “First Lessons in Beekeeping” book, one Alexander style bee veil for sting protection, and one set of ventilated canvas gloves.
4. Fatwood Firestarter
Fatwood is harvested from the stumps of pine trees that contain a high concentration of natural resin. This organic, 100 percent natural resin allows the Fatwood fire starter to be started with a single match and gives a sustained flame. Fatwood is 100 percent natural, with no chemical or additives. Fatwood is harvested from non-endangered, non-rainforest, non-living trees. User friendly, safe, clean and non-toxic. Perfect for indoor or outdoor use, with an indefinite shelf life! Fatwood can be started with a match, even when wet. Great for use in barbecues, campfires, wood stoves, fire pits, pellet stoves, chimneys, coal stoves, and fireplaces.
5. Grow Light System
If your gardening guy secretly dreams of becoming Mr. Green Jeans, here’s the next best thing! The Jump Start T5 Grow Light System is ideal for seedlings, cuttings, flowers and house plants. The super efficient T5 lights help you grow faster by providing 15-20% more lumens than traditional grow lights. It features a simple toggle clamp for easy lamp height adjustment, and the fixture has an internal reflective finish that directs more light to plants. Ideal for African Violets, orchids, flowering bulbs, vegetables, seedlings and cuttings. The assembly is super easy, it won’t take up too much space, and it’s not too expensive, just in case the farming experiment is short-lived. 😉
