You can’t go wrong when it comes to buying gardening gifts for your dad as they are really useful and normally something no one would buy themselves!

Dads seem to be the hardest person in the family to buy for, especially when they say they don’t need anything and won’t give you a clue to what they really want.

So if your dad has an outdoor space that he loves to spend time in then getting him the perfect garden gift could put you on to a real winner.

While it’s true you could buy him a gift voucher for him to something, nothing says “I love you” more than getting him a personalized garden gift that he can use over and over again.

Here are 31 great gardening gifts for dad. Buy him something he really wants and something he will use! We’ve split this into three sections: gardening gifts, gardening tools, and gardening books. One of these will make the perfect gift regardless of the special occasion.
