The hectic shopping season is in full swing and with only one more weekend before Christmas, there isnt a lot of time to find gifts for those hard-to-buy for agriculture folks. If you are a practical gift giver like me, you may be looking for gifts for the farmer or rancher in your family, so here are a few ideas for your Christmas shopping list.
Every farmer needs a few essentials to get through those tough winter chores. Items like sturdy work gloves, coats, and coveralls wear out quickly and are usually worn until they are threadbare. The same is true for a good pair of socks, and a heavy pair of insulated socks will not go unappreciated.
If the person you are shopping for is a do-it-yourselfer, which most farmers are, power tools are always in short supply. Sure, they have a power drill but what about a cordless drill? Most all power tools are now offered with a cordless option, which may prove handy when equipment needs repaired out in the field. Speaking of tools, how could anyone get by without a reliable set of pliers? Though probably among the array of everyday tools, pliers are an item that tends to get misplaced. One can just never have too many pliers. Pliers can be purchased with a colorful grip that makes them less likely to be lost amongst the other hand tools.
