Father’s Day is just around the corner! If your dad loves to spend time in his garden, I’ve got some gift ideas he’ll love. Whether he’s a do-it-yourself kind of guy, or one who enjoys a bit of garden flair, these gardening gifts will brighten his day.
Patio Gardening Gifts
Even if you have a large yard, it’s nice to have some plants growing close to the house, especially vegetables. The Tomato Grow Bag ($34.95) from Gardener’s Supply Company allows you to grow tomatoes pretty much anywhere. This makes it easy to grab a couple of fresh ones for dinner anytime. Gardener’s Supply also offers a Potato Grow Bag ($18.95) that’s durable and attractive.
If your dad loves flowers more than vegetables, consider getting him a unique planter. Wind and Weather’s Library Planter ($79.95) saucers resemble a stack of books. For the old car enthusiast, try the Solar Truck Planters ($49.95 each) from Plow & Hearth.
Garden Decor Gifts
Every garden deserves a little flair! These gardening gifts allow Dad to show off his fun side. For the sci-fi fan, check out the Star Trek Garden Gnomes ($24.99 each) or Star Wars R2-D2 Lawn Ornament (on sale for $39.99 right now) from ThinkGeek. Is your dad a little more whimsical? Check out this Frog Riding a Motorcycle Spinner ($69.95) from Wind and Weather. For space lovers, this Saturn Yard Stake ($19.99) from Hayneedle glows in the dark.
DIY Projects Gifts
If Dad loves to work with his hands, give him gardening gifts full of DIY ideas! These books are full of projects to keep him busy while making his yard look amazing. All of these are available on Amazon.
