f you think that buying a Christmas gift for mom is tough, buying gifts for dads (or any man for that matter!) is even worse. A standard answer to “What can we get you for Christmas?” is generally met with “I have everything I need” or the super-cheesy dad-line “Your presence is present enough!” This, of course, results in us resorting to buying the good ol’ standbys – you know the ones…jocks, socks, or soap on a rope. But, if your dad loves gardening or is a “Mr Fix-it” then this year, ditch the stereotypical gifts and get dad something he really wants (and needs) instead.
Husqvarna offers 5 great gift ideas for dads (and the bonus of ordering online):
Gloves: These slim-fit and comfortable gloves are made with a goat leather palm and jersey fabric on the back. The goat leather offers dad’s hands protection against moisture and is suitable for the most demanding domestic jobs.
8L Handheld Sprayer: Perfect for the dad who loves gadgets but dislikes cleaning them! This handheld sprayer is super easy to clean and can be used around the home or garden. The durable compression pump with a steel rod and a large, comfortable pump handle makes it easy to use and the pressure release valve will help to keep dad safe by preventing chemical spills before opening the tank.
Axe: Another handy gift idea guaranteed to make dad smile. The fibre-reinforced PA shaft makes this axe/hatchet durable and robust and is excellent for chopping firewood, garden work and trekking activities. The axe head has a non-stick coating which gives less friction and easy entry into the wood. It also has a soft grip and secure handling.
