Our volunteers are so involved in the Gardens that they seemed like a good, go-to source for inspiring ideas about what to give the dads in your life for Father’s Day. And Gardenshop is, of course, the perfect place to go. The Gardenshop staff are so good at what they do that finding the perfect, unique gift (even for the person who has everything) is a joy of exploration. Visit in person or via the webshop. Now. Get out your pens and paper, get ready to take some notes, and surprise Dad this year.
Gardens’ Volunteers: Top Picks for Father’s Day
This card strikes me as one that a guy could send to a friend or brother (“from one old goat to another”), or to a buddy who likes Guinness beer! A pruning saw is a good thing to have for most homes around here, and this one caught my eye.

The best card for Father’s Day I saw was this one–it’s fun and whimsical. As for a gift, I certainly would appreciate this guide to tying knots. It looks small and easy to keep handy, especially because I’m horrible at knots and always get caught not being able to tie a bowline. All of the Waterford Press Guides look helpful and seem a good source of gifts.
For my brother-in-law, I’d give him this card because he’s the chef of the household (and my nephews love his cooking). Since he’s also a Maine Guide and forestry guy, I’d get him this t-shirt featuring animal tracks. He’d love it!
