This awesome kit has everything for your favorite gardener. The vegetables are in unique colors, and the weird shapes and the great tastes should be perfect to add to your garden and your table.
The Drunken Botanist Book
This creative book is great for both social drinkers and gardeners. It outlines the benefits of different types of plants you could grow and shows which garden plants actually go into the making of the world’s finest drinks. This is also a great book for a winemaker or a home-crafted beer brewer. If you have ever wanted to start your own brewery and grow the food and grain yourself, this book is for you, too.
Gardening Gloves with Hard, Sharp Fingertips for Digging and Poking
These amazing gardening gloves are perfect for a full-time gardener who just wants to be able to poke holes in the dirt without wearing out their fingertips.

The Gardener’s Bed-Book: Beautiful Stories for Bedtime
The awesome bedtime book is great for your favorite gardener to curl up with after a long, hot day of working in the sun.

It is so important to always embrace the peaceful gardening lifestyle.

Old Man in the Tree Hanging Planter, Very Cool, Very Rustic Looking

When a plant is in it (check the pictures in the listing), the tendrils look like they are the hair or branches of the old man. It really is a wonderful sight to see.
Sharp, Pre-Measured, Depth Knife with Sharpening Tool
This is a great knife gift for gardeners because the knife has depth measurements along the blade, it is pre-sharpened, and the sharpening tool that comes with it has its own sheath, just like the knife does. The leather sheath for the knife keeps it safe and away from moisture, and it looks and smells great.

Mini Tumbler Composter in Pink or Black (Super Cute)
This is one of the most popular composters in the world and many users have rated it highly and have found that it works perfectly.

It’s a great way to remind your gardener that they can always use more mulch.
Classic French Red Flower Wagon
This perfect red wagon for planting is absolutely wonderful to use as a planter in an English garden along a wall or hedge or to use as a statement piece on your front porch or deck. The bright classic red (with real, working red wheels) makes it perfect for blue flowers or yellow daisies. Use a single color of flower planting because the red color of the wagon is already very bright. If your front porch gets a lot of direct sunlight in the morning, put fresh herbs and mint in your red wagon and trim a little to use in your breakfast every morning!
Little Girl and Boy Bronze Fountain (for Indoor and Outdoor Use!)
The single layer of water flow (single tier) makes this the perfect low-sound fountain for an indoor wall of your home. It also goes extremely well in an atrium or conservatory on the side of your home. If you prefer to keep it outside, it would look really well being surrounded by deep green foliage. You can choose from 2 different heights (for different prices) and it has a small light to keep it lit and attractive looking at night. The simple bronze finish will make the perfect addition to your garden without making it look too “busy”.
Three-Layer Wrought Iron Plant Stand (Extremely Attractive!)
This is an excellent gift for someone who has an indoor garden, with or without water fountains. The scrollwork design and mesh metal basket platforms make this attractive plant stand a very fine offering for your friend and is one of the great gift ideas for gardeners. If you would like to give a complete gift, buy dark green evergreen plants with bushy or flowy tops and place them in black pots to blend in with the nice wrought iron finish.
