Do you dislike Christmas shopping as much as I do?
I doubt that’s possible but just in case you do we’ve made your life a little bit easier with some fab selections for the design conscious gardener (oh and there’s some fun ones as well).
We’ll start with the fun ones!
The one thing I do love about this time of year, are fires. If you’re lucky enough to have one, then check out this very smart Kindling Bucket from Garden Trading.
And the perfect accompaniment is this stylish metal log basket, also from Garden Trading.
While we’re enjoying a fire – how about outside too?
This beautiful Morrocan inspired fire basket and grill are great for outdoor entertaining and keeping warm!
Or for those with a larger budget and a love of being up close – a fire table!
For the Allotment-Loving-Shed-Dweller!
So, we all know someone who loves to disappear for hours in the Shed/Man-cave/Allotment. Whether they spend more time drinking tea than digging up the potatoes, show them your love with one of these special gardening-lovers pressies.
Willow Trugs – £29.95 at SarahRaven.com We all love a trug! Perfect for harvesting…and for storing, and stylish in the kitchen too…
A great golf organiser for the garage or shed
If you really want to give a special gift this Xmas…
How about treating your loved one to this lovely willow gazebo? Creating a special place for that cuppa, reading the newspaper or just to unwind at the end of a long day of digging and weeding! This free-standing structure can fit easily into any garden – on a paving area, gravel area surrounded by planting, or simply on the lawn. It will make a real impact. Rawlinson Willow Gazebo – £315 at GreenFingers.com.
Easy on the Purse Strings – funky favourites on a budget!
These gorgeous gifts are all such a STEAL – nobody would know that they came in for £10 or less!
Sarah Raven Seed Tins -£4.50 at SarahRaven.com
I love the bright turquoise colour, and a set of tins is Soo very useful for ANY gardener
For the Design-Conscious Gardener
Gone are the days of boring old watering cans and lack-lustre hand trowels.
Who says ‘practical’ can’t also be ‘stylish’?! These multifunctional pocket secateurs are great!
