10 Best Gardening Gifts For Dad
Here’s a multi-purpose garden gift Dad will use (very) often! It’s a lightweight, foldable garden kneeler/bench that’s easy to store and has pouches for garden tools.
It has a cushion for kneeling near the ground to plant or a seat for other garden chores like trimming rose bushes. And it’s handy for those that need a little help getting up off their knees—the handles help provide balance and leverage. Other great features are its portability and durability (we’ve had one for several years).
Dad (or any gardener, for that matter) will appreciate not having to bend over to pull weeds! What’s great about this industrial-strength weeder is that it will help him do more than weed. He can dig out deep-rooted bushes and trees or dig holes for bulbs, flowers, and vegetable plants.
It has a sturdy steel blade and a carbon steel shaft. So, not only does it do the job, but it’s built to last. And despite its durability, it’s lightweight and easy to handle.
This isn’t your ordinary, everyday garden basket! Dad can use this handy basket to gather, carry, and clean his garden harvest.
This sturdy plastic basket has handles and three compartments. There’s a large colander compartment for washing freshly-picked produce. And an enclosed section works for soaking or separating the clean produce. Also, the smaller middle section can be used for garden tools.
Dad won’t have to remember to turn the water on or off again! You can save him time and energy with this convenient garden accessory.
This easy-to-use watering timer has a large digital display and a dial for cycle selection. It has several program settings for timed or manual watering. Also, you can set it up for interval watering (for example, 2x/day, or every other day), and there’s a rain delay feature.
If Dad likes to keep a close eye on his plants and flowers, this could be the perfect gift! It might seem a bit over the top for some, but it’s a super cool way for Dad to get a different (and beautiful!) perspective of his beloved garden!
This outdoor time-lapse camera goes up to 100 days without charging the battery. It has a 118° field view and provides high-quality footage.
Give Dad the most excellent gardening hat ever! This wide-brim hat offers superior sun protection with its extra-wide brim, plus the fabric has a UPF of 50+. It’s made of moisture-wicking nylon and has mesh ventilation to keep him cool. And if he gets caught out in the rain, no worries, it’s also waterproof! What more could you want in a sun hat?
If Dad hauls mulch, soil, and plants around a large area, give him this fantastic garden cart! It’s a super useful gift that will last for years.
This durable garden cart has 10” pneumatic tires, a rugged bucket, and a steel frame that can hold up to 600 pounds. It rolls easily, and best of all, unloading is a cinch with a quick-release dump component.
Does Dad like to try new gardening techniques? A hydroponics growing system is a perfect way to expand his gardening skills and knowledge. Plus, it allows him to grow flowers or produce indoors and at any time of the year.
This small hydroponics system comes with everything he needs to get started! It has a 4½ liter tank with a pump, a grow light, a built-in fan, and 12 planting pods.
What better way than a Bonsai tree to help Dad expand his gardening expertise!? This starter kit contains everything he will need to (patiently!) nurture these tiny trees from seed. It includes seeds, pots, soil, and a pruning tool. Plus, it has instructions to eliminate the guesswork.
