The British love with the garden shed is well known as is the love for gardening, the countryside and most things out doors. Whether this is because we are a small independent country with green and rolling hills or because self sufficiency is inbuilt is unclear. However the fact remains that this is an enjoyable hobby for many people
The 'upside' to this, besides the fitness aspect of working in the garden, and the financial benefits gained from produce grown, is that when Christmas, birthdays, Father's day some round there no shortage of items which can be bought for the garden owner. No need for socks, although I did ask for socks last Christmas, or after shave or other items, all given with the best intentions and thoughts. The gardener will normally delight in gifts for his hobby.
These can range from even a few packs of seeds however, ideally, try to find out what seeds he would like for his garden, right the way through to buying him, or her, a new garden shed. Which would be a very generous gift. If you do consider a new garden shed ensure you don't just buy the cheapest shed going as this is likely to have chipboard or OSB boarded roof. And you will find these will start to fall to bits after only a few years.
Whilst a garden shed or even a summer house cabin would be welcome, to a certain degree, a shed does tends to be a little bit personal so maybe steer away from this option. If you are keen on this idea I would suggest some consultation with the prospective future owner to ensure the right garden shed is bought.
Garden tools can be another good present, but again, tools for the garden can become personal friends to their owners. Try to get a feel from the owner to see what their view are. You will often find that stainless steel garden tools would be welcomed in most instances and would be a boon for the gardener. Small tools for the garden come in a wide range of implements so you would have a great choice to choose from.
If the prospective owner has aching muscles or arthritis then special tools designed to make gardening more comfortable could be the order of the day. These would often be fitted with padding on their handles to make handling them as comfortable as possible. Another idea is a kneeling pad or garden cushion which can be used throughout the garden. Whilst this might not sound very exciting in many cases will be very welcomed as this will save those knees from getting sore and uncomfortable.
The sheer amount of garden related items available from just a few pounds right up to new summer house cabins (if you have big pockets), like a the ones from 1st Choice, means that you will never be short of ideas for your loved one. You could do what my son does each Christmas and provided a list of what could be useful to him. I will stress it is my wife who asks for the list and it's not my son being cheeky.
Clearly it's a great idea to buy something as a present for those special days of the year and, with gardening items, will last for many years and not just for a few days. So go on and make someone's day and help them to add to their garden tool collection in their garden shed. You can't go wrong.'
