Cool dads deserve cool gifts for Father’s Day. If yours has a green thumb, give him a tool or gadget for his garden. We’ve got 5 quick picks under $50 to celebrate the guy in your life.

For dads who weed

Not all gardeners hate weeding; there’s something zen-like about sitting in your garden with the sun on your shoulders as you work. But even if Dad hates the chore, give him a seat when he weeds with a Vertex Garden Rocking Roller Seat. It’s ergonomically designed to save his back and knees, so he can lean over his plants instead of stooping or kneeling. Flat-free tires let him roll from dandelions to dahlias with ease. Toss in a comfortable Vertex Cushion to add four pockets for hand tools and a cold drink.

For Dads Who Love Tomatoes

Who doesn’t love tomatoes? Give Dad a fun way to grow his favorites with a Topsy Turvy Tomato Tree, and clear the counters for lots of ripe, red fruits as the summer progresses. The 5′ stand sets up on a deck or patio in 5 minutes, and holds up to 3 plants without caging or staking. Don’t forget to include tomato plants, potting soil, and Miracle Gro All Purpose Plant Food so he can start growing right away.

For Dads Who Watch The Weather

Dad needs to know if it’s going to rain or shine whether he’s planting parsley or tilling the back forty. The AcuRite Weather Station Forecaster uses wireless technology and a sensor in his yard to forecast over a 12 to 24 hour period. He can check indoor/outdoor temperatures and humidity; the station includes an Atomic clock and calendar.

For Dads Who Love Their Lawns

Does your father pamper the grass so he can practice putting, or does he just like a lush, manicured lawn? Either way, make it easy for him to distribute fertilizer with a Scott’s Turf Builder Mini Broadcast Spreader.  EdgeGuard technology helps keep granules away from driveways, sidewalks, and water features. When the lawn looks patchy, he can use the spreader for grass seeds. The rustproof hopper holds up to 5000 square feet of Scotts lawn products and makes quick work of lawn care, so Dad can relax in his recliner or grab his favorite golf club.

For Dads Who watch their money

Dad needs to water his garden, but he doesn’t want to waste money. With an Orbit Easy-Set Logic 6-Station Sprinkler Timer, he can put his sprinklers on a timer and irrigate efficiently. The weatherproof cabinet can be installed indoors or out; 3 programs offer flexible scheduling.

Pick any of our five-under-fifty gifts, add a little love, and Father’s Day is sure to be a winner.
