Christmas has come early here at Darlac! After a challenging 18 months and a less than ideal 2020 Christmas, we’re certainly ready to celebrate the upcoming festive season, and we’re sure you are too.
Here at Darlac, we love creating tools that mean you can relish your time in the garden or allotment and spend time in the fresh outdoors. We create these products for you to enjoy and use with ease, it’s why our Darlac tools and accessories also make great gifts. Why not treat the gardener in your life to a Darlac Christmas?
We’ve rounded up 5 Christmas gifts for gardeners that any green fingered friend will love. Keep reading to find an easy guide to choosing the perfect gardening gift for your loved one.
1. WaterMe Pot
Even the most green-fingered of gardeners needs a little break every now and again, and this unique WaterMe Pot could be the perfect present to give them that break. This pot lets you know when more water should be added to the reservoir through the water level indicator. This indicator will reveal when the reservoir is full, and when it needs topping up with a drop more liquid, so the plant inside is kept in the best of health.
Our wonderful WaterMe Pot is available in two designs – a fun black owl design or a sophisticated light grey cloud version. Ideal for indoor areas and adding plant life to all the corners of the house.
2. Bamboo Mini-Essentials Kit
This three-piece mini gardening tool set is a firm favourite. It can be used for houseplants, herbs, planting, transplanting or for work in the greenhouse – plus they’re a great size for children too. But what people love most about this set is the stunning, eco-friendly, bamboo handles. Bamboo is a 100% sustainable source, replenishing itself within 36 months. This beautifully finished tool has great strength and durability.
It could be a fantastic starter set for a new gardener, or a welcomed gift for a keen gardener who needs a little tool upgrade! Whoever it’s for, you can be sure this gift will be well-loved.
3. Take Anywhere Tap
Sometimes, the most useful of gifts are the most loved, and the Darlac Take Anywhere Tap is no exception. It’s a fab stocking filler and can be used in the stables, the yard, the allotment, you name it. Made from solid brass construction, it’s an incredibly versatile product and one you’ll soon realise you can’t live without.
4. Tungsten And Diamond Sharpener
What do you get the gardener who’s got everything? Well, how about a tool to help them maintain their precious pruners, saws and loppers. The Darlac Tungsten and Diamond Sharpener offers the best of both worlds when it comes to maintaining sharp tools. It can cope with heavy sharpening or damaged blades, but with the added bonus of being able to cope with finishing off or edging fine blades. The best part is that the diamond sharpener stores neatly inside the handle – it’s an all-in-one solution.
Side note – always be careful when sharpening tools. We’ve got a great guide to help you keep your tools in tip-top shape and sharpen with care.
5. Sarah Raven Pruning Snips
The Darlac Sarah Raven range offers fantastic style and substance. The tools are hard wearing and strong, as well as stylish and perfectly designed for smaller hands. Anything from their range makes a wonderful gift, but especially the Sarah Raven Pruning Snips. They’re perfect for deadheading and light pruning, but also great for flower arranging and managing house plants. The thin blades allow easy access to tight spots and the lightweight design, plus thin ergonomic handles, means they are a great option for non-slip gripping. A gift any gardener would be grateful for.
