Wildlife Gardener Friendly Christmas Gift

This Christmas present idea just popped up on Facebook via a friend and I thought it was worth sharing it here.

There is a bee and butterfly bag which contain seed mixes specifically designed to support bees or butterflies. There is also a bee box with lots of seeds in and some honey and a beeswax candle too. All my family will be getting one of these this year.

    You can never have too many bee hotels.

    Good call. I just sorted out about four people's gifts from there. And maybe added a bee hotel for myself the bees. o:)

    Crikey. The Eden shop is pretty amazing. A life's worth of gifts there. The Field Guide series is rather lovely. I would love them all. :s

    I have several of those field guides, @Fire, they are excellent and really good for taking on travels as they are so light in comparison to books. I've received them as presents and got a couple for myself - they're generally available in RSPB shops and the like. I've got Bees of Britain, House and Garden Spiders, Dragonflies and Damsel flies, Butterflies of Britain and two lichen ones (trees & wood and stone & soil).

    I have the one on birds @LG_ . I hadn't realised there were so many others. Very cool. The guide to bees might be a gift to self.
