It’s almost time for Christmas so we’ve put together a list of our top gifts for wildlife enthusiasts in your life. Whether they’re a green-figured gardener, a bird lover, a wildlife photographer or a young nature enthusiast, here’s a selection of gift ideas to help you find something they’ll love. Encouraging a love for wildlife is the perfect present that keeps on giving!
Simon King Gift Pack
As featured on Facebook Live with Simon, this super pack contains the new Curve Nest Box which is aesthetically appealing as well as being designed by Simon for small hole nesting birds such as tits, sparrows and flycatchers. Packed up with this is a signed copy of the Simon King Nature book and some premium wild bird food. Simon’s wonderfully detailed book is full of useful information about how to get the most from watching nature, all gleaned from his life out filming in the wild. Packed up in an attractive box with recyclable packaging it makes for a lovely present.
Interactive Solitary Beehive
One of our most popular products, the Interactive Solitary Beehive is a lovely present that’ll bring pleasure and satisfaction through the spring and summer. Easily hung on a sunny external wall or fence, it provides habitat for the often forgotten solitary bees such as Leaf Cutter bees and Mason bees. These pollinators are an essential part of our ecosystem and modern houses or gardens can provide challenges for them. You’ll see them overnight in the holes and the satisfaction of seeing these non-swarming bees lay their eggs and seal the tubes beautifully with leaves or dried mud is a joy to behold. This solitary hive is interactive as it can be carefully separated after the summer to view the cells where the eggs have been laid.
Wildlife Whisperer Cap
Every birdwatcher, wildlife adventurer or photographer needs a good cap, you won’t see Simon out and about without his! This rugged cap certainly captures the look and feel and keeps the sun out of the eyes whether you’re snapping, tracking, or watching things flapping in the wilds!
A Bird Model
Loved by Simon from his childhood these bird models are beautiful and fun projects to put together and display. Whether it’s a crafting activity to do with a young bird lover or a relaxing past-time on a wet weekend, these life-size, stunningly detailed cardboard flying birds are great presents. They require use of a sharp modeling knife so are suitable for 12+.
Hogilo Hedgehog House
The Hogilo offers hedgehogs a safe and durable refuge whether for hibernation in winter or for use when providing food in the other seasons. Made from recycled agricultural plastic it looks really smart. The swivel lid allows access for feeding or cleaning and the small doorway with entrance tunnel is excellent at preventing domestic pets and larger mammals from accessing the house. Built to last this is a great gift to a hedgehog and a loved one!
Wildlife World Bird Gift Pack
Containing the hugely popular Brushwood Robin Nester, this gift pack contains wildflower seeds perfect for providing the diversity to attract wildlife to gardens, some gourmet bird feed and a species guide. Simon designed the lightweight Brushwood Robin Nester to be easily tucked away in bushes and act as a crucial roosting in tough winter weather and then a nesting site in spring. A lovely gift to help these most festive of birds.
