Gardening apparel is a great gift idea for seasoned gardeners. It is not only practical but also your favorite gardener will surely appreciate the gift especially if it fits him or her perfectly.

Gardeners may spend a lot of time in the dirt but that doesn’t mean one should not dress nicely when doing so. They may prefer to be well-dressed when doing their hobbies just as one would when playing golf. Proper gardening apparel will allow the gardener much comfort in moving and climbing, if and when it is needed. Regular clothing will not provide the comfort and quality of specifically-designed gardening apparel. Garden clothes may make a gardener¬ís job easier, enabling them to do their job efficiently under any weather conditions.

First and foremost, your gardening apparel should allow movement. This should not hinder the gardener in any way. Normally, a gardener will keep 2 to 3 sets of gardening clothes so giving them another set would be much appreciated. Here are some tips when choosing gardening apparel for your favorite gardener:

  • Hats are important for gardeners. This will protect their heads from harsh weather conditions such as sun, rain and wind. This can also shield their head from any protruding branches thus avoiding injury from happening. The most recommended headgear for gardeners is a hat which protects the head adequately while allowing some room for ventilation.
  • The idea of giving gardening apparel for gifts is to provide a comfortable gardening experience to the recipient. With that said, clothing should provide convenience in movement which means it should be big enough to allow full range of motion but not hang awkwardly to the body. Cotton, long-sleeved t-shirts and baggy pants are your best bets for gifts. Or, even a scarf of hanky. Vests with multiple pockets are great too since they can easily slide gardening tools in it while gardening. Waterproof jackets are greatly favored by gardeners especially breathable ones. Check out specialty gears such as spf protective shirts or insect-repellent gardening apparel.
  • There are many kinds of footwear available for gardeners. You can either stick with the classic boots or experiment with colorful rain shoes. Gardening footwear is meant to protect your feet and prevent slips and falls while trudging through mud and slippery soil so it should be sturdy and at the same time comfortable for the user.

All of these gardening clothes should also be easily washed after use. Comfort must not be sacrificed in the name of something that is cute or pretty since these two seldom exist when your hands are covered with soil and mud. So, observe what your gardener may need in the way of apparel, and start shopping!
