3. Outdoor clock

It’s easy to lose track of time when doing garden chores. But you can make this a thing of the past by giving them an outdoor clock.

Look for a weatherproof unit with medium to large sizing. It’s something which will need to be ready at all times of the day on any day of the year – so will need to be robust enough to stand up to harsh elements.

10. Insect-repellent spray

Working in the garden can mean two things: gardeners vs mosquitoes and plants vs insects. It turns out that both the grower and greens (or harvest) aren’t safe from pesky bugs.

Cue bug repellents; they especially come in handy during summer to keep mosquitoes at bay. Consider getting them DEET or plant-based sprays.

11. Hanging bird bath and feeder

Help your gardener buddy to attract more wildlife in their garden with an open feeder like this. This is a smart gift if they’re home birdwatchers or enjoy feeding their feathered friends.

The hanging feature also ensures the birds are safe from stalking predators, a.k.a. cats.

12. Expanding garden hose

A garden hose can save them from having to carry heavy watering cans, but it can be prone to tangling up. So instead of getting your fellow green thumb a standard model, opt for expanding one.

Being flexible, it expands when the water runs through it and is more resilient. Offering 8 functions and pattern sprays, this garden hose pipe is a must-need item.
