Gift guide: Father's Day in the garden

Does your dad enjoy being in the garden? Then treat him to a gift he’ll love this Father’s Day and help him embrace his love for the outdoors.

Father’s Day is just around the corner (didn’t that roll around quickly?!), so it’s time to start planning the perfect gifts for dads and grandas who love to be out in the garden.

To help spark your imagination, we’ve put together some great ideas on how to spoil your loved one this year with our Father’s Day gift guide. Whatever you choose, we’re sure he’ll be delighted with his new gifts and gadgets on the 20th June.

Gardening Book

RHS How Do Works Work 

Does your dad love learning about new things to do with the outdoors? Then help him expand his knowledge and discover tips for his own garden with a gardening book.

We recently published a list of our own favourite outdoor furniture books and Gardeners’ World has put together a handy list of the 10 best gardening books. With popular titles ranging from A Pocketful of Herbs to How Do Worms Work, there’s a whole new world out there for him to explore.

Perfect for: The Bookworm Dad

Ooni Portable Fire Oven


If your dad enjoys cooking outdoors, a fire oven is perfect for rustling up delicious 12” or 16” wood-fired pizzas without the fuss. It reaches temperatures of up to 500°C  (950°F), creating authentic Italian pizzas in only 60 seconds.

He can also use a pizza oven for baking bread and roasting meats, making it a handy addition for spring and summer al fresco dining.

Perfect for: The Keen Chef Dad.

Panama Hat

Style-conscious dads will love getting their hands on a stylish Panama Hat this Father’s Day. This timeless style has been handwoven using high-quality materials in Ecuador before being finished to the highest standards in the UK.

It has a Cuenca/herringbone weave with a distinctive crease down the middle, allowing it to roll with ease and maintain its shape. If your dad likes looking good when he’s pottering about outdoors, there’s no better way to protect his head.

Burgeon and Ball Container Scoop


The innovative, RHS endorsed Container Scoop from Burgeon and Ball is a great way to transfer compost with less mess. That’s because it has deep sides with a wooden collar, preventing soil from spilling out all over the place.

It’s larger than most other trowels, enabling your dad to fill up his pots and planters in no time. It’s also crafted from high carbon steel with a tough powder coating that prevents rust and tarnishing.

Perfect for: The Gadget-Loving Dad

Burgeon and Ball Container Scoop, £14.99



If your dad’s a self-confessed eco-warrior who wants to help the bee population thrive, treat him to a Beebom or Wild Flower Seedbom. Each one contains a mixture of seeds and soil that’ll grow wildflowers in the bottom of his garden that bees can feast on.

To use your bom, shake it a few times, then pull the tab upwards to open it up. Remove the plug and submerge the bom in water until the seeds are soaked and turn soft. As soon as they do, the bom’s ready to use outside.

Simply scatter them over your soil between March and June or August and October (depending on when you want them to bloom) and watch the seeds flourish.

Perfect for: The Wildlife Enthusiast Dad

Beebom Seedbom, £6.95 / Wildbom Wild Flower Seedbom, £6.95

Watson Flextime Leather Gardening Gloves


No gardener can be without a reliable pair of gardening gloves. The Watson Flextime gloves are great for heavy-duty gardening, thanks to the supple, waterproof goatskin leather.

They feature a secure Velcro wrist closure and form-fitting memory fabric for a perfect fit, meaning they’ll stay on while your dad’s getting to work in the garden. And because they’re so comfortable and flexible, he’ll even forget he’s wearing them!

Perfect for: The Always Gardening Dad

Watson Gloves, £14.99

Bistro Sets and Benches

Dads with Lazy Susan Bistro Sets & Garden Benches 

If your dad loves enjoying peace and quiet in the garden, treat him to a stylish 2 Seater Bistro Set or Garden Bench from Lazy Susan. Not only are they perfect for sitting out and reading a good book with a cup of coffee (or a quick open-air jam on your Strat), but they provide extra room when friends and family visit, allowing your dad to make the most of his garden.

Most of our benches and bistro sets are crafted from cast aluminium or craft steel, meaning they’ll last him for years to come. There’s no better gift than the gift of relaxation.
