Gardening Gifts For Dad
Even if your dad has everything (or says he doesn’t need anything!), I’m willing to bet you will be able find several things on this list of gardening gift ideas for dad that he doesn’t already have. Have fun shopping!
A soil test kit is perfect for the dad that likes to be precise and scientific in his garden. It is super easy to use and helps your dad figure out exactly what nutrients his garden needs.
A lot of dads like to geek out about how much rain their garden gets, so a rain gauge would be the perfect gift. This easy to read rain gauge measures up to 5 inches of rain. It has a really cool design that magnifies numbers when it fills with water. Your dad can even mount it to a post or stake it in his garden.
Digital hose timers are amazing! All your dad needs to do is set up the watering interval and the duration of how long to water his garden. And voilà, he no longer has to worry about whether or not he watered the garden! He could also it hook up to a drip irrigation system to make watering containers or the garden even easier.
An indoor/outdoor thermometer is a great gift for the dad who likes to obsess about the weather. Not only does it display the current temperature both inside and outside, but it also displays the humidity percentage.
For the dad that loves to always know the temperature outside, this outdoor wall thermometer will be a big hit. It’s large and easy to read so he can hang it in his garden and see it from a distance. So, when he wants to know the temperature outside, he can just look out the window.

One of the biggest pains of raking leaves is trying to get the leaves into the trash bag. These awesome hand leaf scoops help to save time and frustration for dad when he’s cleaning the yard. They also protect your dad’s hands from needles and sharp items, and would work great for cleaning up the garden too.
This time lapse camera will turn your dad into the next Steven Spielberg of time lapse videos. He can create a time lapse video of setting up his garden, or a project he’s working on around the house. He can even use it to find out what critters are feasting on his garden plants or destroying the bird feeders when he’s not looking.
If your dad is constantly carrying (ehem, losing) multiple tools around the garden or the house, a bucket tool organizer is the perfect gift. It slips easily over most 5 gallons and is durable for all the projects your dad wants to tackle. Your dad will never lose his tools again (well, maybe we won’t go that far!).
A garage tool organizer is a great addition to your dad’s garage or garden shed, and will help him keep all of his long handled garden tools organized. It easily holds and organizes over 40 tools. There are three different options to help you find the best storage organizer for your dad’s space.
