30 Garden-Inspired Gifts for Father's Day
Dad doesn't need another tie; find the perfect garden-centric gift that he'll want to use year-round.
If the dad in your life spends more time outdoors than in, then your Father's Day gift should reflect that. Below, we've compiled a list of the best Father's Day gifts for every budget, whether dad is a gardener, griller or helpful handyman.
If he spends hours weeding, digging and tending to the flower beds, then your dad definitely needs a quality sun hat. We love this one from Terrain because it comes with mesh side panels for ventilation, has a removable chin strap and has been treated with Insect Shield to keep away those pesky mosquitoes.
Give Dad the break he deserves and gift him an electric pressure washer that'll help him tackle outdoor chores. Though it may seem too cute and compact to power off mold, mildew, peeling paint and grime, this piece of equipment can easily polish those long-stained surfaces. What's more, the power washer comes with a 35-foot cord, a soap applicator and an adjustable cleaning tip so Dad can change up the settings.
Instead of letting one hummingbird commandeer Dad's single-spout feeder, install the Hummerbar in his garden. Since it's two feet long, this piece allows 22 birds to sip at once. If Dad is an avid birdwatcher, this innovative spin on the usual feeder should thrill him to no end.
As much as he loves his work boots, we're willing to bet that Dad won't mind adding a pair of waterproof clogs to his gardening wardrobe. This classic style from the Hunter collection features a high-traction sole, soft rubber and a practical neoprene lining.
What better way to warm Dad's heart than with a fire pit that bears his family name? Virtually indestructible and made from raw, hand-welded steel, this rustic cauldron has a laser-cut nameplate that your father will proudly show off to all his friends. It's pricey, so this would be a great way to get the whole family to pitch in to show him how much you all appreciate him.
Help Dad clean up the yard and create mulch at the same time with this electric chipper. He'll love tossing branches and twigs into the top and watching them instantly turn into nutrient-rich soil. Don't forget to pair your gift with a stack of yard waste bags, so he can get started ASAP.
We have no doubt that your eco-conscious dad will get good use out of this 37-gallon composter. Since it's so compact, the bin will fit neatly in the corner of his yard and easily turn kitchen scraps like eggshells and vegetables into nutrient-rich soil. Just fill it up, give it a few turns every couple days, and dad will have a nourishing batch of compost for his backyard or garden.
Don't let Dad's knees take a hit while he's working in the garden; instead, gift him this thoughtful stool, which has a cushioned seat. In addition to reducing any aches and strains, this bench will keep his clothes free from grass stains.
If you ask us, a handyman could always use a high-quality waist belt for all his tools. This leather apron will do just fine, made from durable buffalo leather and pockets to hold his gardening essentials. You can even get it personalized for an extra $10-$12.
Encourage small cavity dwellers like wrens, finches and chickadees to take up residence in Dad's backyard with this delicate, raindrop-shaped birdhouse. Together, you and your dad can hang up the plywood house and then admire all the birdies that use it as a safe haven.
Help Dad get a headstart on growing season by gifting him this tiered portable greenhouse. The easy-to-assemble, tent-like structure is transparent to allow sunlight in, but has a zip closure that prevents frost from damaging bulbs. The shelving is made of sturdy steel tubing to stand up to the weight of Dad's favorite potted plants.
Give Dad this stone-fired outdoor oven and you'll be giving yourself the gift of delicious pizza for years to come. It's powered by eco-friendly wood pellets to create the subtle, smoky flavors of a built-in wood-fired oven and it bakes pizza in 60 seconds flat. Need we say more?
For the man who's meticulous about cleaning his tools, shop this special maintenance kit. Inside the drawstring bag, he'll find a scouring block to remove resin and rust, a small bottle of Camelia oil to protect tools from corrosion and a stone that's perfect for everyday sharpening.
If you really want to make his Father's Day sweet, present Dad with a set of specialty honey. Each vial is hand-corked and wax-sealed and may contain flavors like raspberry, orange blossom, buckwheat, sage and sweet yellow clover. After tasting these, he'll have an even better idea of why we should protect the bees!
Dare Dad to take his cooking skills to the next level and gift him this cast iron skillet, crocket and trivet set. Each kit comes with an organic, locally made seasoning oil and stainless steel cleaning mesh, so he can break the pan in before prepping dinner over an open flame.
When in doubt, get your dad a work table. Made from durable teak wood and treated with Instant Grey + Teak Shield finish (which gives the wood a silvery, aged patina and prevents wear and tear from sun), this pretty piece will seriously elevate his potting shed. Dad can organize his tools up top and stack his planters on one of the two slatted shelves.
We guarantee that you'll make the grill master's day with this flat-top grilling station. Because the unit is powered by propane and boasts an easy push-button ignition, it eliminates the hassle of handling kerosene and charcoal. What's more, the latest edition comes with a side shelf that serves as a removable cutting board and a paper towel holder.
