Giving garden gifts for Christmas is a great way to surprise the gardener on your Christmas list, this is a great gift idea especially for any elderly men you buy for who are into gardening. Gardening is one of the most popular hobbies for seniors, this used to be my best gift option for my father before he become too frail to keep planting his garden. This year I am feeling the anxiety searching for Christmas gifts for my elderly parents, my mother also has been forced to give up gardening because of her health problems.
What Garden Gifts To Give?
The best way I know to find out what the men on your Xmas list would need or want in gardening gifts is to ask their family, most wives know what their hubby wants in gardening gifts or any hobby he might be into. The family members who often know the best gifts for you to give them are their wives and often their teenage sons and daughters, for many men this could be a topic they share at the dining room table. If this is not possible, search for cool garden gifts most people would not buy for themselves. Other gardening gift options are for you to make them a gardener gift basket with gardening supplies you know they must use regularly such as fertilizers and maybe gardening tools and even gardening watering devices.
Gardening For Men
Even though many of the men who are the most passionate about gardening are the elderly men, this is a common hobby for men of all ages. I started gardening as a little boy with my grandparents, this hobby has stuck with me all these years and at the age of 58 I still have a passion for planting a garden. Remember, there are many types of gardens to introduce to anyone with the passion, there are vegetable gardens and flower gardens and also herb gardens you can choose for gifts for the men you are buying for. That is only the beginning, many people today plant in containers which this is referred to as container gardening. How about indoor gardening with herbs and houseplants, maybe your gardener would be interested in a new garden hobby you can give them for a Xmas gift?
Gardening Gift Ideas
Many people are surprised just how many gardening gifts there are to buy for men, many people love garden decor for Christmas gifts to add to their garden when spring arrives to make it unique compared to the other gardens in their neighborhood. Another popular garden gift my mother loved was when I gave her a set of garden solar lights, another gift my father really loves was the garden water sprinkler system I gave him for Fathers Day one year. These were big hit gifts for my parents over the years, possibly some of these will be good gifts for men who garden on your Xmas list.
Garden Wind Chimes
Any garden becomes special with wind chimes playing a magical song, wind chimes bring a garden alive. Consider giving the gardener your buying for a wind chime to add to their garden, another good addition to any garden is bird nesting houses and bird feeders. Squirrel and wildlife feeders also are very popular in gardens, it seems people who love their gardens also love the wildlife which visits their gardens as well.
Butterfly Nesting Boxes
I have never known a gardener who did not plant to attract butterflies, a great gift addition to every garden is a butterfly nesting box. What a surprise they would get when they open their gift and see it is a specific box to attract butterflies. Another visitor most gardeners welcome is the hummingbird, giving a hummingbird feeder also could be another surprise gift.
Raised Garden Kits
Many gardeners would love one of these raised garden kits, these kits make it possible to have a much fertile garden in a very short time. This is a great gift for someone wishing to plant a garden without having to till up the yard, also you could consider a garden rototiller for a garden gift for someone with a garden already established and possibly tilling by hand is becoming difficult for their age or they have health problems.
