Top 30 Best Gardening Gifts for Mom
1. Vivero Hori Hori Garden Knife
What woman doesn’t want a sharp Japanese knife to muck about the garden with? This is useful and handy for a multitude of outdoor activities including landscaping, weeding, digging, camping, hiking and even fishing.

2. Asano Japanese Ninja Claw Rake and Cultivator
Continuing with the Japanese tools idea is this nicely balanced claw tool. Japanese gardening tools are a popular thing with gardeners in many Western countries.

3. Foldable Garden Kneeler With Handles And Seat
This works as a kneeling pad with handles that assist her in getting up or turn it over and use it as a stool or a tool bench. It even comes with a bonus tool pouch. This helps reduce the pain many experience with prolonged stooping, bending, or kneeling. Heavy duty and usable indoors and out.

Now Ms. Lovejoy–author of Roots, Shoots, Buckets & Boots and the award-winning Sunflower Houses–does for the garden what Heloise or the Queen of Clean does for the household.” A great read for relaxing on the back porch, enjoying looking at the results of her labor. Gardening labor, I’m not talking about having kids.
