While it’s still cold outside, it’s never too early to start thinking about gifts for the garden enthusiasts in your life. Even though they may have to wait for warmer weather, it’s the thought that counts, and here are some great ideas for your green-thumbed friends and family (check your local Ace Hardware store for availability):

Fiskars® 18in Momentum Reel Mower

Not much has changed in the mower arena until now. This push, people-powered mower has a new design, an easier height adjustment and a self-sharpening blade. It also contains an inertia drive system that actually helps the unit propel with the help of your arms and legs. It retails for about $230.00, so this one should be for a really special person.

Garden Weasel Garden Cultivator

This is truly one of the most useful tools for the garden. It’s lightweight and can accomplish a variety of tasks. The rotary action will turn and aerate the soil and help to control weeds. It retails for around $30.99.

Dramm Touch N’ Flow Rain Wand

Now you can water in style with the Dramm Touch N’ Flow Rain Wand. These are some of the best watering wands on the market. They are strong, durable and work for years. They’re also available in a variety of great colors. Pick one up for around $15.99

Yard World Spider Sprinkler Stand

My favorite sprinkler by Yard World is the Spider Stand Sprinkler. It’s lightweight, waters like crazy and stands up tall at about 20” off of the ground. Just attach your standard garden hose and watch your garden grow. Retail price is around $31.99.
