What to get the dad with a green thumb?

It’s a dilemma many of us are faced with every year — what to buy dad for Father’s Day. He’s done so much for us throughout the years, so what can we possibly give that will show him just how much we appreciate him?

Many of the typical gift ideas, such as neckties and golf balls, have been overused or appear too generic. As a result, more people are now looking to give dad a gift that truly reflects who he is, that allows him to get closer to his hobbies and interests. Some people also prefer to give a gift that can be used long after the holiday has come and gone.

If you have a gardening-enthusiast dad, you’re in luck. There are plenty of new, affordable gardening gifts you can give dad that will enhance his experience outside. The following are just a few that can make his gardening easier and more enjoyable:

With container gardening now one of the most popular forms of gardening, a beautiful planter is always appreciated. Whether dad has a small or large yard, or lives in a cold or warm weather climate, container gardening offers him a great way to enjoy the benefits of gardening without requiring much space. For the dad who prefers container gardening, there’s a wide variety of beautiful, yet ultra-lightweight planters now available that even replicate the genuine look of many natural finishes, including wood, stone and ceramic. Polylam 4 planters by Dynamic Design, for instance, aren’t just attractive, but are also more durable and a fraction of the weight of traditional planters.

For the dad who’s pressed for time, multitasking garden tools are a must. Today, there are more gardening tools than ever designed to save time and effort. These tools are valuable because they can be used for more than one job. And not only do they minimize the number of tools dad will need to use, carry and store, but they can help him complete his gardening tasks quicker.

The new Planter’s Buddy from True Temper is a great example. This unique seven-in-one garden tool features a uniquely shaped, durable, stainless steel blade and combination straight and serrated edges, so dad can use it for transplanting, splitting open soil or mulch bags, weeding, cutting twine or even sod without ever needing to reach for another tool. On the front and side are 12-inch measurement markings for easy measuring of distance when planting. And a poly tamper on the end makes it easy to tamp down wood stakes, markers, or even fertilizer spikes. And it’s an all-in-one convenient, easy-to-carry tool.

Or, why not a tool that’s designed to save dad from a sore back? Weeding is a chore that takes countless hours and meticulous attention to detail. But Hound Dog has an innovative and ergonomic tool, the Weed Hound, that will keep dad’s knees straight and his hands clean, while making weeding easy and efficient. The long handle of the tool and comfortable grip means he can pull out weeds, and roots, while he’s still standing; simply place, step and pull. Its unique plunger clears weeds after pulling and aerates soil for a healthy lawn. And best of all, no more bending, stooping or kneeling!

For added value, you could print up your own certificate and weed the garden for dad, free of charge. Or, he may enjoy it if you commit to spending some special, one-on-one time with him in the garden.

Most importantly, remember that no matter what you decide to purchase when shopping this Father’s Day, it’s the thought that counts. Your dad is sure to appreciate anything you might give him if it helps him enjoy his gardening hobby even more!
