Even though my gardens are now dormant, I’ve already started looking forward to the spring planting season. In fact, I had fun just looking through these photos. For a gardener, there is no more perfect Christmas gift, than a gardening outfit, whether it be gardening aprons and gardening hats, gardening clothes, or gardening tools.
As I comb through the selections for my favorite gardeners in life, here are a few of my favorite gifts for gardeners.
No gardening outfit is complete without a gardening apron and a selection of gardening hats. These are the first things I pull on as I head into my garden so that I don’t end up filthy and sunburned. Even though there are practical easy to clean rubber gardening aprons, I tend toward the cute printed ones. Most of the dirt comes out in the wash and what doesn’t adds to their patina. I also love straw gardening hats. These are breathable, light weight, and keep the sun off my face.
Other key items in gardening clothes, are gardening gloves and gardening shoes. I look for gardening gloves that are thick enough to protect me from the pricks of roses and other flowers. I also like them to be somewhat waterproof as I am constantly spilling water on them. Speaking of waterproof, gardening shoes are a must. Between the mud and the water, I want something that can easily be hosed down when I finish.
It is absolutely amazing to me how far gardening tools have come. Some companies have managed to find the perfect balance of cute, functional, and creative gardening tools. I think my favorite is this canvas carryall stool. It’s not only a stool, it’s also a gardening bag. How cool is that? See this and my other favorite gardening tools and accessories below.
I hope these gardening inspiration boards stimulate some gift-giving ideas. If nothing else, I hope that the photos bring back some summer joy now that we are approaching the end of fall.
