My Mum is a very avid gardener, just as I am, but one thing she absolutely refuses to do is buy quality garden tools. She insists on buying cheap stuff that breaks after a season or so. I try to explain that this is a total false economy as if she adds up what she has spent it is a lot more than if she just bought the best garden tool sets in the first place.
She won’t listen. So rather than try, again, to explain the virtues of something like the Fiskars 9667 garden spade I decided that last Christmas she would be getting a garden tool gift set and that would be the end of it.
And she loves it. And all the tools are still going strong.
In this article I want to take a look at the best garden tool sets, for gifts or just for ourselves. It works out cheaper than buying all the tool seperately and it also means that you have a great matching collection for you or the person you are buying the set of garden tools for.
Outdoor Tool Gift Sets
There are pretty much countless options. From 3 piece garden tool sets with a planter, trowel and transplanter, to large sets that have just about everything for the garden you could ever need.
There are pink garden tool sets for women and even garden tool sets with stools.
The most popular are the garden tote tool sets or the garden tool bag gift set and this is what I got for my Mum. It ensures that tools are not lost as you get a bag for all of them so it keeps everything together as well as ensuring that it is easy to carry the tools around the garden as well.
Bond 6930 Pink 5 Piece Garden Tool Bag Gift Set
This is the option I bought, and it is one of the most popular plant tool gift sets I could find.
For this and plenty of other options please take a look at this link to all the best sets I could find on Amazon. They have the best prices, and the best selection by far.
The Bond 5 piece garden tool bag gift set price is very low, perfect to buy for someone without it making too much of a dent on the wallet, but also of very high quality as well. We will find that it is one of the best reviewed sets as well, which always bodes well.
Best Garden Tool Sets
I think that it is better to buy a set that has more than just 3 tools. If you go for something more comprehensive then it is a much better gift, if it has a bag it is more “gifty” than just giving someone a few trowels. This comes down to if it is a gift or just for personal use.
But for the difference in price it seems much more worthwhile to buy something that includes a few extras. Scissors and pruners are used often by most gardeners so they are a great addition to the usual suspects you may see elsewhere.
I hope this has inspired you a litte and that you no have some ideas for what to get a gardener who you simply cannot think what to buy them as a gift.
And if it is for your own use then you should still be inspired to buy a great garden tool set that will last for years. You always get what you pay for so buy good quality and it lasts for decades.
