Gift Guide: Garden Guru

Check each of the Daily Buzz channels every day this week to find gift ideas for all the different people in your life. Yesterday, here in Home & Garden, we had gift ideas for your Eco-Friend. Throughout the week, we'll also have gift ideas for: the Handmade Hipster, the Handy (Wo)Man, the Pet Lover, and very soon...Stocking Stuffers!

What will you get the Garden Guru in your life?

Your Garden Guru friend probably has more rubber clogs, thorn-resistant gloves, and trowel thingies for digging in dirt than she could ever use in one garden. Why not find something a little more unique for your garden-loving pal?
