Kneelo Knee Pads
A small gift but one that’s well worth having. These new knee pads from Burgon & Ball use an ultra-cushion memory foam technology that’s flexible and comfortable whether you’re kneeling, standing or walking. Available in a range of colours, I’d go for modern slate grey or classic moss green.

This polished high carbon stainless steel lambfoot pocket knife is handmade in Sheffield. With brass bolsters and linings and a wonderfully tactile rosewood handle it is the perfect general purpose knife to slip in your pocket when you’re out in the garden. Available from Objects of Use a fabulous website for all manor of simplistic, beautiful and useful items.

Keep warm in these snuggly Wiggly Wigglers goat hair socks. Made from 68% Mohair for warmth blended with 28% nylon, they’re designed for comfort and protection. A cushioned base and reinforced heel make them ideal for wearing with boots on outdoor tasks and as an added bonus they can be washed at 40º
Cambridge Oil Lamp
The clean lines of this contemporary oil lamp will work in any garden design style. Great for tables or placed around the garden to add ambient lighting. I love the rustic charm of this copper version. Available from Posh Garden Furniture online.
