Lawn and Garden Equipment for Your Holiday Gift Giving

by Jeffrey Anderson, All About Lawns Columnist

It's that special time of the year--holiday lights are up, and carols are on the radio. You have a list of family and friends to whom you want to give gifts, but the annual dilemma now arises.

You want to give a gift that shows your appreciation. You also want to give something that confirms you reflected on that person's preferences, something they can use and enjoy personally.

Avoid presents that are likely to be stored away on a shelf somewhere, or worse yet, re-gifted. Think carefully about the people on your list. If someone you know spends a good deal of time working in the yard, then lawn and garden equipment could be the perfect gift.

Lawn and Garden Equipment Gifts Can Fit Any Budget

Sometimes it's the thought that counts. If you're on a tight budget, or you just want to let a friend know that you're thinking about him, a simple yet thoughtful present like gardening gloves or new trowels may be ideal. Small, inexpensive items like these make good stocking stuffers, too.

Some lawn and garden equipment gifts are a little more expensive, but can make a yard enthusiast quite happy:

  • Gas or electric leaf blower
  • String trimmer
  • Edger
  • Gas or electric hedge trimmer

Take a walk through your local home improvement center and you can see there are plenty of other lawn and garden equipment gift options, as well.

If you have a special someone on your gift list, or are trying to think of a good holiday present for your entire family, a lawn tractor may be an excellent choice. You can be sure that as hot summer days approach, it is a gift that can certainly be used and appreciated by anyone who cuts the lawn.
