By RANDY DRINKARD How excited I was as a kid back in the 60s when I would rush into the living room on Christmas morning to see what Santa Claus had left under the tree! I would fever- ishly open packages, boxes, and bags to see if good old Santa had remembered my favorite toys. Somewhere in this process I would find tucked under the tree a small square box that I would immediately toss to one side because I knew that this box contained a bottle of cologne. You see, I had a relative that gave me the same gift year after year. I appreciated him thinking of me, but hon- estly, I didn't really need another bottle of cologne to add to my collection. If you are like my dear old relative and have trouble selecting an appropriate gift for the gardener on your list, here are a few suggestions. Books make wonderful gifts for gar- deners. There are many areas of interest in gardening and I guarantee you can find a book about every one of them. Stop by the nature section of your favorite book- store and you will find beautiful reference books on shade gardening, vegetable gar- dening, water gardening, gardening with native plants, backyard habitat and bird watching. Garden books are an excellent way for your favorite gardener to pass the winter months planning new garden proj- ects. Garden art can be another excellent choice. An ever increasing number of gar- deners enjoy garden statuary, gazing balls, and other accessories. You can also select garden benches, decorative stepping stones, sundials, or fountains. Of course, you need to have a basic understandigg of your friend's gardening tastes before selecting garden art. A Japanese garden lantern might not fit in too well in an English cottage garden! Maybe your gardening friend loves attracting wildlife. You could consider giv- ing birdfeeders, bird baths, or bird hous- es. A hummingbird feeder might be a won- derful gift.
