Garden at work
Gnome & Garden lets you bring the garden wherever you need a plot of plants (in our case, the office!). This handly little kit comes with a gnome, a miniature lawn, plastic flowers, backdrops and The Garden Gnome Book, which gives a history of the garden gnome. Gnome and Garden: A Gnovelty Kit, $20, Amazon.ca.
Do the twist
The problem with growing plants indoors? With light coming from only one direction, plants require regular turning to prevent lopsided or under-developed foliage. Before you scratch your tables turning pots by hand, try Evengrow. This plastic disc makes rotating your plants—whether to water, deadhead or promote even growth—a breeze. At under $10, it makes a perfect gift for any gardener on your list.
Dig in without wrecking your manicure
Tired of wrestling with gardening gloves that just don't protect your hands? Try Dig It gloves, designed for women, by women. The gloves protect your hand from inside the glove, as opposed to relying on an exterior coating to keep dirt and grime from getting to your fingers. The pillow-top padding keeps nails from coming into contact with the glove, while still allowing for dexterity. Better still, the gloves and all packaging are made from recycled materials. Cheers to keeping your manicure spotless while planting annuals! Dig It Handware, $34.
