Amy’s Fun and Unique Birds + Bees Themed Holiday Gift Ideas
It’s holiday time and that means presents. Here’s a list of fun and interesting birds + bees themed gifts so you can give some unique and different gifts this year.
Wildlife Houses & Feeders — Butterfly and Nature Gifts
They have homes for birds, bats, bees, ladybugs and even toads! Most of their houses are individually hand-painted, so slight variations in the painting occur and serve to enhance the originality of each piece.
Bird (and other critter) Themed Toys — Songbird Garden
They offer a wide selection of nature gift items that entertain, educate, and challenge the minds and imaginations of children. Everything from Paint a Bird House or Bird Feeder Kits, children’s books, kaleidoscopes, kids umbrellas, shaped rubber bands, bug windups and many other nature-themed toys are found at Songbird Garden.
Beeswax Candles — Beeswax Candle Works
100% pure beeswax is the only ingredient in their handmade candles and they buy from only US beekeepers. They have over 35 sizes of hand dipped candles, three sizes of tea lights, four sizes of votives, two sizes of emergency candle tins, over 25 sizes of solid pillars, over 30 figurines, and 14 sizes of beeswax honeycomb candles.
Birds & Bees Jewelry — Etsy
Etsy is a marketplace where people around the world connect, both online and offline, to make, sell and buy unique goods.
Tea — Birds & Bees Teas
Birds & Bees wants to share their love of loose leaf blends by encouraging mamas to create a daily self-care habit of sipping slowly. They believe that it’s important to support birth professionals, advocate for evidence based care and give back to the community through organizations that champion quality maternal health care for all.
Coffee — Birds & Bees Blend from Kaldis Coffee
Birds & Bees is a South and Central American blend of hard-bean coffees, roasted hot and long until most of their essential oils rise to the surface. A classic roast perennially favored in Continental Europe. Kaldi’s Coffee is dedicated to creating a memorable coffee experience for their customers and guests, committing to sustainable business practices, providing educational opportunities, and supporting the communities that they serve.
Honey — Ballard Bee Company
The Ballard Bee Company is what founder and owner Corky Luster calls an “urban pollination company.” The retail sales of honey coming from these hives supports their program of acquiring more hives and expanding the apiary into other parts of the city. Working together with neighbors and their backyards, the Ballard Bee Company produces a truly provincial food. It’s honey that is local…produced in the Seattle area with help of people who are involved in the food process.
Honeybees — Heifer Project International
Give the gift of honeybees and change a family’s life forever. Heifer Project empowers families to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity – but their approach is more than just giving them a handout. Heifer links communities and helps bring sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty.
Chicks — Heifer Project International
Give the gift of a flock of chicks and change a family’s life forever. Heifer Project empowers families to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity – but their approach is more than just giving them a handout. Heifer links communities and helps bring sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty.
Bodycare Products — Burts Bees
From candles to cosmetics, Burt’s Bees believes what you put on your body should be made from the very best nature has to offer. And this means bees. 10% of the purchase price will be donated to The Burt’s Bees Greater Good Foundation.
Birds + Bees for Grown-Ups — Babeland
Find something naughty AND nice! 😉 Claire Cavanah and Rachel Venning opened the first Babeland store in 1993 in response to the lack of women-friendly sex shops in Seattle. The store offered top quality products, a pleasant place to shop, and most of all information and encouragement to women who wanted to explore their sexuality. The store’s popularity with both women and men has led to three more stores in New York, plus a thriving and educational website.
Happy Gift Giving! If you have kids age seven and under it’s totally cool to give them a birds + bees book for the holidays. If they are over the age of seven, it’s totally un-cool — they will probably be embarrassed, so don’t do it. Book ideas for the little ones here: Amy’s Bookstore.
