The winter holidays are tough times for gardeners: With the ground frozen, there’s not always a lot to do except wait and wait and wait. (Gardeners learn patience, right?) Still, if you give the green thumb in your life any of these charming gifts—a Japanese digging knife, or a sturdy pair of gloves—you can rest assured that as soon as they’ve torn off (and recycled) the packaging, they’ll rush right out into the yard to put their new tools to the test. And if it’s too cold to do outside work, some of these gifts are perfect for inside activities.
