With Father’s Day just around the corner I’ve been thinking about useful gift ideas. My kids always love to give their dad his favorite candies, handmade cards/notes, a new tie, etc…all of these gifts are always greatly appreciated and graciously accepted. I thought it would be fun this year to put together a Gardening Tool Box and thanks to my local Western Gardens I was able to knock out most of my shopping in one place. I did get the Husky Bucket Jockey online (here) and we already had the 5-gallon bucket but you can find them online too (here) but the rest of the tools and many many others were all found at Western Gardens.
Check out all of this they have in stock, and this isn’t even everything. It was a great place to start our plan. There is a gift in the bag from each of the kids. It includes 2 different types of shovels, gloves, small rake, pruning shears, and weeder.
We loved the bucket jockey because it has pockets all on the outside and the inside to help keep everything organized. He can use the inside pockets to separate and organize seeds (the kids and I are each excited to pick a few different varieties to include in the kit) and being inside will keep them protected from the elements. Once the seeds are all planted the bucket can be used to easily gather weeds while out gardening or as a seat when needed.
To top off the gift I created this Father’s Day tag perfect for the Gardening Tool Box. I designed it in black and white and it can be colored by the gift giver. It’s all all drawn and cut by the Cricut Explore which makes it an easy tag to make.
You can find the cut file here. I love the way it pulls the whole gift together. You or your kids can color it to their own liking making the gift even more personal.
I swear It seems like some gardening tools need to be replaced annually at our house, they tend to walk off to who knows where and end up missing forever. I’m really hoping that each tool having its own home will prevent that from happening this year.
If’ you’ve got a dad in your life who has a green thumb (or wishes he did) this gift is the perfect choice for this Father’s Day.
