slate effect surround made from polyresin and a built in thermometer and humidity dial.  It is 14" in diameter and costs just £29.95.   It really would look great either inside or outside and is fully weather resistant.  You will find this and many other clocks on our Outdoor Clocks page.  A bit on the same theme but we all know guys love different things, how about this next one, a Galileo Thermometer which we have in either small or medium.  This stylish thermometer has several balls of exact weight placed in liquid and as the temperature rises and falls so do the balls.  Each thermometer comes gift boxed and the sizes are
small - 5x5x30cm priced at £14.99

at £21.99.  These really are an unusual and interesting gift and will give hours of pleasure watching the weights go up and down.  Find it on our What's the Weather page along with a range of other thermometers.  So next we have a Cast Iron Garden Tool Hook which would look great in the garden shed.  It has four hooks and measures 30x5x17cm and is priced at £8.99.  You will find this one on our Garden Accessories page.

Staying on that page you will find some brilliant dog ornaments which are great for indoors and outdoors, a fantastic hand cream to make sure you keep his hands lovely and soft! and some unusual topiary frames.  So I am certain there will be something there to suit even the most difficult man.

So today it is the turn of the kids!!  It's never too early to get them interested in the garden and nature so here are some brilliant gift ideas for..................... children!

First up is this DIY Paint Nest Box Kit which is a fabulous idea for young and old alike. In the kit you get the nest box, paintbrush and three paints, blue, red and yellow so don't forget you can easily mix them and make up other colours.  The box measures 15x12x20cm and is priced at just £9.99.  This makes a great gift as it gives them something practical to do but then you can pop it outside and the birds will love it too.

Next one for you is this Frog Window Thermometer which has suction pads attached so you can easily stick it to your window and                                                             the kids will love seeing it and
    learning to see what the temperature is.  Priced at just £4.99 we also have a bumble bee and ladybird thermometer available.  It measures 17x3.5x23cm and is a really fun way of introducing children to the world of weather!

This next one is similar to our DIY Paint Box but with this kit you have to make the nest box!!
So here it is our DIY Nest Box.  Now obviously this one is either for an older child or for a younger one who will need help as there is a hammer, nails and glue involved!  Full instructions are included and it is priced at £17.99.

Hello everyone and I hope you have all had a very enjoyable and productive week.  Here at Ruddick Garden Gifts we have had a new addition to our family. Meet Ella our 15 month old Jack Russell Shih Tzu.  She arrived with us last Sunday and is settling in well.  Alfie and her are getting on great.  So for this weeks "Product of the Week" I am featuring something that I think we will have to use from now on.  Dog Rocks
are a brilliant solution to burn patches on your lawn and plants.

You simply place the contents of your packet of Dog Rocks into your pet's water bowl and fill it with no more than 2 litres of water then the 100% natural minerals in the rocks neutralises your dogs urine thus preventing nasty burn marks on your lawn.  These rocks have been laboratory tested and are endorsed by vets worldwide. They will not harm your pet in anyway.  You will find them on our Garden Care page and each pack is priced at £12.50.  So why not try them out today and have a greener lawn in no time.

 Hello, sorry I haven't been about lately but 
things have been a bit hectic here at Ruddick
Garden Gifts.  So today we are concentrating on our feathered friends for our "Product of the Week" well "Products" actually.  If you have any of these little fellas in your gardens or birdies just like them then now is the time to start thinking about feeding them again.  The weather is getting colder and they will need to keep up their strength for the winter and here at Ruddick Garden Gifts we have 
 some fantastic bird feeders to do just that.  You will find them all on our Best For Birds page.  First up is our Apple Bird Feeder which comes in a choice of shapes - apple, circle or bird.  It is made of wood and really simple to use.  All you do is pull out the metal bar and attach an apple.  That's it!! It comes with a hook on top so it can be either hung in your garden or just left to stand.  Whichever way you choose the birds will love it.
 Each one measures 38.5x38.5x21 cm and they are priced at £4.99 each.  So no more throwing away those bad apples give them to your feathered friends, they will love them.  Next one up is our Mesh Feeder which is made of pine wood and has a zinc roof which you just lift off to fill with peanuts.  Priced at £6.99 it measures 20x10x19cm.

And finally we have my favourite, the Bread Feeder at only £3.99 it is great value and totally effective.  No more bread all over the garden, simply pop a piece of bread in between the mesh and let the birds peck away at it.

So there you have it, some great ideas for feeding the birds.  Simply go to our Best For Birds page and place your order today and your items will be with you in a couple of days.
