Many men would rather not use protective gardening gear than go shopping for it. But I promise you, if you gift it o him, he’ll gladly use your gift.

Gardening gloves are very important for anyone digging in the dirt. If you have roses or larger bushes, a pair of long garden gloves can protect his hands from getting pricked, scratched, and infected.

Same with gardening shoes. They’ll keep your feet safe from all kinds of things in the garden: sharp objects (like that rake you forgot “teeth” up), ants, rocks, and other unexpected things on the ground. My husband LOVES his Muck gardening boots!

Knee pads are a lifesaver for those days when you need to weed the garden or plant your garlic. Kneeling on the ground gets old really fast, and a good pair of knee pads can do miracles.

Gardening Books To Get Inspired

No matter how long he’s been in the garden, there’s always something new he could learn about bettering his skills. It could be a new gardening method (maybe he could learn about permaculture, or aquaponics, or some other exciting agricultural development).

Maybe learn about container gardening or raised bed gardening.

Or if he gets sad when he’s not able to get out in the garden, a gardening magazine subscription could lift up his spirits.
