1. Corona Tools FlexDIAL ComfortGEL Bypass Pruners – 3/4 in.

These branch and stem pruners by Corona Tools are a perfect fit for any hand size. You can dial in your own custom setting to help reduce work and fatigue during repetitive cuts in applications like dead-heading. The handles featuring ComfortGel grips for superior comfort and less hand fatigue.

These branch and stem pruners by Corona Tools are a perfect fit for any hand size. You can dial in your own custom setting to help reduce work and fatigue during repetitive cuts in applications like dead-heading. Select 1 for smaller hands or faster cuts and 8 for larger hands or powerful cuts. The handles feature ComfortGel grips for superior comfort and less hand fatigue. It also has a built-in lock that I always find helpful for storage. I've been using these for a month now, and they are one of my new favorite tools. I absolutely love how the blade is coated in non-stick high carbon steel for enhanced cutting performance.

2. Landscape Design Combinations by Lee Miller

I first became familiar with Lee through her fabulous gardening blog, A Guide To Northeastern Gardening. She frequently shares personal garden tours, landscape design combination ideas and so much more. Lee is a landscape designer, gardener and author. Her new book, Landscape Design Combinations has helped me out tremendously this spring and summer.

Her new book, Landscape Design Combinations has helped me out tremendously this spring and summer. When I wasn't really sure where to begin with a project, this book pointed me in the right direction. The book is filled with gorgeous images of plants to help get your creative juices flowing. I will be posting a full review of this book later this week, so stay tuned!

3. Fiskars Garden Multi-Snip

I've actually purchased multiple pairs of these Garden Multi-Snips by Fiskars. They are just that good. You can snip, slice, saw and cut with this handy and durable tool. If you deal with materials like chicken wire all the time, like me, these are for you!

I've actually purchased multiple pairs of these Garden Multi-Snips by Fiskars. They are just that good. You can snip, slice, saw and cut with this handy and durable tool. If you deal with materials like chicken wire all the time, these are for you! Wire can be such a pain to deal with. You can also snip stems, slice open burlap bags and saw rope. It is the perfect tool for any homesteader or gardener. It features a serrated edge and a fully hardened, precision-ground steel blade. It will definitely stay sharp through heavy use. The Softgrip touchpoints enhance comfort and control. The bonus sheath is included and even has a belt clip! There is also a full lifetime warranty, so they will last forever!

4. Garden Design Magazine Subscription

This is hands down my new favorite gardening magazine! Each issue has 148 pages with no ads. Yes, thats correct. NO ADS! I'm a photographer, so I really appreciate the gorgeous photography featured in Garden Design Magazine.

This is hands down my new favorite gardening magazine! Each issue has 148 pages with no ads. Yes, thats correct. NO ADS! I'm a photographer, so I really appreciate the gorgeous photography featured in Garden Design Magazine. It also features in-depth stories about gardens, and the passionate people who make them. Many of the stories unfold over 8 to 20 pages, so they really get into those details we want to know about as a gardener. You will get a behind-the-scenes look at topics like designing with plants, landscape design, container gardens, kitchen gardens, houseplants and more. I've been relaxing outside on my hammock, daydreaming and getting lost in all of the beautiful pictures!

5. CobraHead Mini Weeder & Cultivator

Everybody needs a CobraHead weeder in their life! I was lucky enough to get my hands on a mini, and now I'm very much attached. The CobraHead Steel Fingernail works with either or both hands.

Everybody needs a CobraHead weeder in their life! I was lucky enough to get my hands on a mini, and now I'm very much attached. The CobraHead Steel Fingernail works with either or both hands. It weeds, cultivates, scalps, edges, digs, furrows, plants, transplants, de-thatches and harvests. The handle is both comfortable and efficient. It is made using a mix of recycled plastic and organic materials. My favorite advantage of this product is it's small size. I can put it in my pocket while I'm walking around! Weeding can be such a hassle, but this tool really does the trick and makes it so much easier. This is a definite must-have. If you are giving one as a gift, make sure to get one for yourself!

Have you discovered a new favorite gardening book or product this summer? Tell me all about it in the comment section below. I would love to know what you are loving right now. Make sure to check back on August 8 when we will be discussing preserving, canning and drying. See you then!

    Wow! Such great ideas for the gardener. I want all of them 🙂 I’m planning a redesign of part of our yard so those design magazines look very interesting. And the tools! Yes! I think I’ll make a birthday list for Dave and I. Thanks!

    Hi Angie,

    Those are some great tools and ideas for any gardener. I’ll have to send this to my husband and kids for future reference.

    So many great gardener gift ideas, Angie. I have a pair of the Corona bypass pruners and love, love, love them. They work great. The cobra head weeder is a new one to me. I’ll have to check it out.

    Good tips about gifts for any gardener! You’ve featured some excellent products in your post. I’m always on the lookout for good pruning shears, as I seem to have gone through several of them over the past years.

    What a wonderful post highlighting our fabulous sponsors. I love my tools and my book and all the great things in my sway bag. I also enjoyed the wonderful meals, appetizers, snacks and drinks throughout the Fling. Nice job with the links, too!

    Great ideas, I have a lot of gardeners in the family so these will come in handy.
    I would warn though, don’t do the magazine subscription for anyone year after year. My sister in law got my mother in law a gardening magazine for 8 years until she finally realised it is pretty much the same advice for the month each year. Mother in law had kept them all and that was quite a pile! We have helped her sort them out now and she has just kept a few favourite in a folder!

    We are always stumped for something to get our green fingered grandparents and they’ve told us not to bother. However, we can’t leave them out at Christmas and Birthdays can we?! Thank you for these suggestions. #GoingGreen
