Do you want to interact more closely with your garden wildlife? Or know someone who already does? Then follow our inspiring guide with the best ideas for wildlife gifts this Christmas!
A huge change in our understanding of how important wildlife is for the garden has occurred over the last decade. Organic gardening relies on a fundamental balance between nature and the humble gardener, and what better gift to give than one which helps this vital partnership to thrive. Whether it be bird feeders, bird boxes or state-of-the-art wildlife camera kits, these gifts are perfect for the wildlife enthusiast and organic gardener alike.
To give a helping hand in finding something they will love, from big gifts to plenty of stocking filler ideas, we have put together a very special list of our top gifts for wildlife lovers in your life, just in time for the festive season.
We are proud of our bird houses and bird feeders because they keep our wildlife thriving across British gardens. Because of this, a bird house or feeder is the kind of gift which just keeps on giving!
There are many varieties of birds you can spot from your window, but if you provide them with a tasty meal and warm home, they will keep coming back for more. In return, they will fill your garden with the sounds of delightful bird songs and bring your garden to life.
Bird houses make a charming addition to every garden and are a thoughtful gift for avid bird spotters!
The Teapot Nester, Roosting Pockets, and Pear Bird House are all cosy pockets of protection for small garden birds to have an overnight retreat. They can be tucked away and become little hidden safe havens.
Acorn Bird House
Give wrens, great tits and sparrows a safe home with this super cute Acorn Bird House. Crafted in the shape of an acorn, this will help them out during the cold winter months to shelter against strong weathers and raise their adorable little chicks.

Feed your feathered friends in a variety of different ways! Whatever shape or size of your garden, we have something which fits all. Give the gift of a quirky bird feeder, or something more traditional, and spot the nations favourite garden birds from your very own home.
