Here's a last-minute holiday gift idea for a gardener in the family. Gardeners are always concerned about the temperature in the garden, especially when frost is threatening or winter night temperatures are dropping. This thermometer allows you to easily see how cold it is outside -- even at night.
The Solar Lit Thermometer features a bright, white, easy-to-read face and solar-powered LED bulb that illuminates the thermometer for up to 8 hours after sunset. The thermometer stands 22 inches tall and has a 2-foot-long stake to insert in the soil. When you're away, it has an on/off switch to help save the life of the rechargeable batteries.
