If you know a home-grower and/or budding farmer then you might be wondering what to buy them when it comes round to their birthday or over Christmas. This is quite a niche activity so it is difficult to know what gifts will be well received and what they already own.
Read on for a few gift ideas which they are sure to appreciate. You could purchase a few of these into a gift box and then arrange a parcel delivery to surprise them at home.
A bee hotel is a nice present idea which can help to bring bees to the property which can bring a host of benefits. In a time where the bee population is declining, it is important to find ways to support these beautiful and important creatures and this is a great way of doing this.
When you grow your own food it can sometimes be hard to make use of it all before it perishes. A food dehydrator is a brilliant gift because it allows the recipient to preserve food and make jerky, dried fruit snacks and more.
A compost bin is an excellent present for any home-grower because being able to make your own compost can help you to make big savings, it is helpful for your garden and it is good for the environment. This is particularly important in a time where environmental impact is such a big topic and people are looking for ways to be more environmentally-friendly.
If the recipient is also a big cheese fan then a cheese-making kit is a great idea. It can be a fun and rewarding process to make your own cheese and they are sure to love the end results and could even start to sell their own cheeses once they get the hang of it.
It can be physically demanding work to tend to your crops or garden particularly when you start to get older. A garden kneeler can provide a cushion for your knees, a seat to rest on and a way to help you get to your feet when working outside which can take (some) of the strain out if this type of work.
Those that spend their days farming or gardening will always appreciate a good pair of gloves which can provide protection and keep your hands clean. They are likely to have their own already but these can get worn out and it is always helpful to have a few pairs lying around.
These are just a few gift ideas that any gardener, home-grower and/or farmer is sure to appreciate and will help them massively in their daily tasks.
