So, I just finished my beast of a gift guide and there literally is something for everyone in it. Take a look, and you'll find stocking stuffers, tools and gear, books and high-end presents -- and every single one is a gift I'd want to receive myself.
Click here to check out my favorite gardening gifts of the 2010 holiday season. And consider these two unique gifts, too:
Gardening classes (631-727-7850 ext. 345, $50)
Sure, you can give your friends a garden, but why not teach your friends to garden? Send them to the Suffolk County Cornell Cooperative Extension’s 2011 Spring Gardening School. Your prepaid tuition gets them a full day of instruction, which includes four gardening classes, continental breakfast and lunch at their choice of three locations: Brentwood (April 2), Bellport (April 9) or Riverhead (April 16).
CCE membership (516-228-0426; $25)
Who wouldn’t want a master gardener at his or her disposal? That’s pretty much what you get with a one-year membership to the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Nassau County
