Our friendly staff has plenty of holiday gift inspiration for your shopping pleasure, including these, our top three gardening gift ideas.

The Perfect Pair of Gloves for Gardening Tasks

The gardener on your holiday list probably has a pair of gardening gloves already. In fact, they may have a few pairs. But, if they’re like many of our loyal customers, they hesitate to splurge on any of them. Besides, gardeners can never have enough gloves.

This year, why not gift your loved one with the perfect pair of gardening gloves? Look for a pair that is comfortable and flexible, made of leather or a breathable stretch material. A padded palm, elastic cuff and long length at the wrist are other desirable features in today’s garden gloves. And, make sure they are water resistant.

You don’t have to spend a lot for this gardening gift idea, as many high-quality garden gloves cost less than $50. Even specialty orthopedic gloves, designed to support the hands and wrists during gardening tasks, won’t break your holiday budget.

A Kneeler Seat to Make Gardening More Comfortable

Gardening can be hard on the body, especially for older planting enthusiasts. Spending a lot of time kneeling and bending can be stressful to the knees and back, so consider choosing a padded kneeler seat for the gardener on your holiday gift list.

A kneeler seat can ease the wear and tear on your loved one’s joints, making gardening much more comfortable. Several styles are available, some of which are built on wheels for easy transportation. Some designs even fold flat for easier storage. And, kneeler seats are typically just as affordable as gardening gloves, making this a great gardening gift idea.

A Potting Bench for Planting and Storing Gardening Supplies

Do you need a gardening gift idea with a little more heft? Any gardener would love to see a potting bench under the Christmas tree – or at least on the porch, if space is an issue.

A potting bench gives your loved one a place to work on gardening tasks, such as transplanting seedlings or repotting indoor plants. Some models have storage bins under the work surface to keep soil handy, and most contain shelves, drawers or cabinets to store tools and supplies. And, if you really want to make your green thumb friend or family member happy, you can even choose a potting bench with a built-in sink.

These are just a few of the delightful garden tools and accessories available at Millcreek Gardens of Salt Lake City. Our friendly, helpful staff would love to assist you this holiday season. You can select from northern Utah’s best indoor and outdoor plants and accessories. Stop by and see us today and let us share even more gardening gift ideas.
