Garden Gift for Dad: £0-50 budget
It’s the thought that counts, not the amount spent. So, when it comes to presents it’s easy to find the perfect thoughtful gift without blowing the bank. Here are our suggestions for the perfect (budget-friendly) garden gift for dad:
If your dad’s anything like my dad – he’s a softy at heart. At the time of writing this my dad’s converted an old unused rabbit hutch into a hotel for stray cats. Moreover, he leaves food out for the bird, foxes and anything else that ventures into his garden. Why am I mentioning this? Well, my first suggestion for garden gifts for dad is a hedgehog care pack. For less than 20 quid, you get a gift, give him a warm fuzzy feeling and a hedgehog a home. What’s not to love?
When it comes to tools, it’s not a one-size-fits-all situation. But, what every man needs is a good hose – the longer the better. Chances are he’s already got one, but why not give him an upgrade. There’s a multitude of them available, so it depends on the size of his garden. But, as a good reference point you can pick up a decent 25 meter one on budget. Practical, portable and perfect as a gift – it’s got you covered.
Want to bring some warmth to the festivities. Well, with an electric weed burner you can literally do just that. This bad boy a wacky weed whacking alternative that saves your back. Give him a gift you’ll all benefit from, he gets a new toy to play with and you never have to see weeds again. Perfect, right?
Gift for Dad: £50-£150
If you want a bit more bite for your buck, here are our suggestions for gifts that will wow without the worrying price tag to match.
If you’re anything like me, you’ll love being outdoors all year round. Even on those crisp winter mornings, there’s something poetic about sitting outside with an early morning brew. However, there’s only so long you can endure Jack Frost biting at your nose before you retreat indoors. Although, you know what would stop that? A fire pit. Even on those summer evenings when the sun puts its hat on – a fire pit will keep the party going. A fire pit is a must-have for any garden socialite and they make the perfect garden gift for dad!
How about a smart splitter?
Is your dad a forestry fanatic or a log burner lover? Is so, why not save his back and his time by investing in a Forest Master Smart Splitter. Safe, easy to use and ergonomic it uses a drop weight – no swinging (and missing) required. This helps prevent injury and strain to you back, neck and shoulders. It’s easy to set up, you simply need to attach the splitter to a flat woodblock or large log. This sturdy, strong and streamlined approach to log splitting would be a great garden gift for dad.
Want to bring the outdoors in? Me too. In my opinion, nothing beats the smell of fresh herbs growing in the kitchen. But, keeping your herbs healthy can be a hazardous hurdle to jump. The lack of sunlight can easily reduce brazen basil to withered wasabi. How do you combat that? Well, the indoor smart garden has got all the answers. Simply plant one of the plant pods, top up with water and the smart system does the rest. Grow anything and everything with this system! Once they’ve reached the required height, simply transfer them outdoors
Garden Gifts For Dad: £150+ budget
If you’ve got an all-out budget, you’ll want an all-out product. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of our suggestions for garden gifts for dad £150+:
There’s something about a bbq that every man loves. They make the ultimate party starter, nice weather out today – bbq. Oh, we’re supposed to be throwing a party – bbq. Want to mix it up and have dinner outside – bbq. Basically, no one’s ever said no to a bbq. So, whether he’s not got one, or needs an upgrade – a bbq is a great gift (how many times can I say bbq in one paragraph). But, Arrows – I hear you cry – we’ve just got one. Well then, how about a pizza oven? That way you’ll have garden parties that would make Adam & Eve jealous.
Want the ultimate present?
Shouldn’t the ultimate gadget double up as the ultimate tool, we think so too. If you’re wanting to wow him too then how about a robotic mower? Easy to use and cool as can be this is the must-have gift for any green-fingered gent. Take the Bosch robotic mower, for instance, it’s all controlled via an app. It’s designed for even the tightest of spaces and utilises smart mower technology to avoid bad weather. It cuts your lawn, your time spent doing it and the labour involved down meaning you can focus on what matters.
As previously mentioned, any ultimate tool should do the ultimate job. Likewise, it should be multipurpose. And we have the ultimate multipurpose tool for you, the 3-in-1 Forest Master shredder, chipper and mulcher does it all. Streamline your composting needs with this all in one solution. Need to chip wood – done. Want to shred cardboard – yep. Can it shred veg and green matter for mulch – easy. This tool is the ultimate jewel in any crown and will streamline your compost processes. When it comes to garden gifts for dad we can’t think of anything better.
