1. Best Gardening Stocking Stuffers:
Natural Twine in Dispenser Can
This is one of the best ideas for stockings! We received this twine dispenser can last year. It has been a lifesaver in the garden and even around the home.
Typical garden twine gets tangled and knotted, making it difficult to cut a piece of twine when your hands are already busy. This stocking stuffer may not seem like much, but a gardener is grateful for organized twine. The can is reusable.
You can purchase it here: Natural Twine Dispenser Can.
Spiral Slicer for Fresh Vegetables
Kitchen Active Spiralizer Spiral Slicer Zucchini Spaghetti Pasta Maker is worth the mouth full for it’s description.
This kitchen gadget makes a great stocking stuffer. This kitchen tool cuts vegetables to make vegetable noodles and spiral vegetables for garnishes and salads. Help gardeners enjoy their raw, fresh vegetables. It’s also a great tool for those on low carb and Paleo eating plans.

Gentle Plant & Flower Clips for Supporting Stems
These Plant and Flower Stem Support Clips may not be on a wish list. But, we know they will be used over and over again. They are a quick way to support tomatoes, eggplant, cucumbers, vines and more. Twenty clips come in a pack.

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life by Barbara Kingsolver
