For a truly festive gift, how about a snow blower. These great little machines start at just £179, from Swedish maker Stiga, and blow snow away from paths and drives simply and quickly saving hours of work with a garden spade, which many of you use.
Then there is the Garant Canadian snow shovel, a really handy piece of equipment which can shovel huge amounts of snow away or be used as a pusher. And they cost just £25.
Any gardener would appreciate a new chainsaw so how about the Einhell BG-EC 1840 TC, a strong little machine which we have on sale for just £69.
Or you could go for a slightly more expensive petrol model, the Efco MT3500, a really strong chainsaw handy for lopping branches as well as sawing wood.
It costs £199.95, but has a host of free extras with it like helmet, visor and ear muffs so you could wrap these separately.
Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone!
For those of you feeling really generous, you could buy a garden or lawn tractor. This is the ultimate boy’s (or girl’s) toy and has a host of uses around the garden, not just cutting the lawn.
Have a look at the little McCulloch ride-on mowers for just £899, the cheapest in the country.
Or you could buy a proper garden tractor like the MTD 125-96B which is a great value for money machine yet strong and truly versatile as it can tow a trailer, roller or leaf sweeper. Cost: £1199.
Back on the snow theme, now everyone can own their own mini snow plough.
The Einhell MSF 570 Manual snow plough is a nifty little device which works on an auger moving the snow off paths and drives as you push it along. It would be really handy when we get a harsh snow fall and costs just £49.95.
Another natty little tool can solve many gardening problems all in one. The Mitox271-MT petrol multi tool is a grass trimmer, brush cutter, pole pruner and articulating hedge trimmer (for those difficult high hedges) all in one.
The whole set costs £299 and would be a really great festive gift.
And we may be starting to come to terms with the fact that it really is winter, but how many people would not like a new mower, knowing that their old faithful in the garden shed is probably on its last legs.
If you know someone who’d like a new one than look no further than the I Tuffcut T4204S Self-Propelled 4-Wheeled Petrol Rotary Lawn Mower which is on special offer for £229, £100 off the manufacturer’s recommended price. And there’s a free five litre steel Gerry can absolutely free as well. an extra
And another mower which will make a great gift and is also a bargain is the Mountfield SP536 which you can buy for just £299, £150 off the manufacturer’s recommended price.
This is a top mower from a top manufacturer.
It’s not too late to give the keen gardener a great gift this Christmas – just have a look at our main site for hundreds of other possible presents.
Father Christmas is probably putting the final adjustments to his sleigh even as we speak so we can’t put off the present buying much longer.
