Important features to look for in a garden tote include quality construction, size and organizational capabilities.
3. Foxglove Gardening Gloves
A good set of gardening gloves is a gift that will be used over and over again, and Foxglove makes an excellent pair. With a modern design and colors, Foxglove gardening gloves are form-fitting for ultimate comfort and performance. They'll keep hands clean all day long and fit so snugly that the person will forget that they're wearing gloves at all.
4. Set of Ergonomic Garden Tools
Show that you care by getting them a set of ergonomically designed garden tools. The handles are designed for a comfort fit with the hand and feature a gel-grip cushioning. These tools will help to reduce the aches and pains associated with repetitive gardening tasks. You can purchase a whole set or a single tool. Common tools include a trowel, bulb trowel, weeder and cultivator.
5. Subscription to a Gardening Magazine
Inspire the gardener on your gift list with a subscription to a gardening magazine. They're sure to find lots of gardening ideas in the informative articles and full-page color photographs. Top picks include Fine Gardening, Horticulture, Garden Design and Organic Gardening magazines.
6. Quality Hand Pruners
A high-quality pair of hand pruners is a gardener's best friend. There is probably no tool that is used more. A clean cut is important with pruners, so look for a pair with a good, sharp blade and the ability to replace the blade down the road. That way your loved one will get a longer life out of your gift. Opt for one with an ergonomic design for safe use.
