What should you gift a farmer? Do you have any on your Christmas shopping list this year? Let our clever Christmas gift ideas for farmers help inspire you!
If there’s one thing that’s certain, every farmer has and always needs tools! There are so many specialized tools of the trade. But farmers also need simple items like gloves, rags, and tough scrub soaps.
Want something a little more special? You totally cannot go wrong with pocket tools like the The Tactica M100 mini multitool. This incredibly versatile took adapts ensures they have the tools to tackle any challenge.
We tested out the Tactica M100 and found it to be very lightweight and super handy. The Tactica M100 mini multitool is universal wrench (6 sizes), screwdriver, package opener, metric/imperial ruler, and even a bottle opener all in one. Made from 70% glass composite material, the M100 weighs a mere 1.6 ounces so farmers can easily slip into their pocket and carry around all day with ease.
An internal storage compartment allows the Tactica M100 user the flexibility to pick and choose the tools they need, when they need them, without having to carry a heavy toolbox around. You can even attach the Tactica M100 to a tractor or shed key ring. This tiny tool will come in handy for hundreds of uses around the farm and the home.
Really want to give a priceless gift? Offer to help on the farm during your holiday break. There are so many ways you can pitch in from helping with daily chores to cleaning tools.
You could even offer to give your farmer friends the chance to escape the farm for a day. If you have experience, you could feed and care for the animals during their time away. If they have children, many parents are always grateful for babysitting services, too. A night out is a welcome respite for couple. And it’s less stressful when someone they know is providing quality care for their farm, animals, and/or children!
Help comes in many forms. Perhaps a home meal delivery box would be a great treat to help them not have to worry about what’s for dinner after a long day of chores. Other subscription services like coffee of the month clubs or “stress-relief boxes” for moms are fun options, too. Farming life can be tough and a box full of pampering products could really perk up someone’s day!
There are many books that deal with farming and agriculture and plenty are of great use to a farmer. You can tailor it to whatever this particular farmer farms or interests they may have. They have a wide selection of books at bookstores and, of course, you can search for specific items on a website such as Amazon.com or by doing a web search.
Magazine subscriptions might be a welcome gift, too. You can focus on farm-related publications or look for those that match their personal hobbies, like an automotive repair monthly journal.
If you know someone that is new to farming, is a homesteader or a hobby farmer, consider picking up a copy of Rural Mom’s newest book “Getting Laid: Everything You need to know about Raising Chicken, Gardening and Preserving – With Over 100 Recipes!” It’s a poultry-powered guide to living an eco-friendly lifestyle on the farm, homestead, or even on a small patch of land in the suburbs!
Want a gift that really “wows?” If you have it in your budget, your farmer loved one may be able to use some sort of equipment. This can range drastically in price depending on what you get. You could get something very extravagant such as a new tractor if you have the budget and it is someone close to you. Alternatively, purchase a smaller piece of equipment that is moderately priced or even inexpensive like a sander, grinder, or power drill.
No matter what you get, you will want to first make sure that it is something useful to the farmer. Even the most extravagant item is a waste if it won’t be used.
You can purchase these at stores that specialize in farm equipment. Some of the smaller items may also be available at hardware stores such as Home Depot and Lowe’s or on the Internet.
Hope this helps you come up with the best gift ideas for farmers this year!
