We’re starting earlier with holiday gift ideas as there’s so many cool bird accessories and so little time. Do stay tuned for some pretty unique non-birder gift ideas too!
Theme: The gift of nature can’t be matched, for it offers an innate connection that’s capable of soothing the soul and clearing the mind. Simply put, watching birds in the yard (or on the patio/balcony) removes life’s chaos! It has the capacity to form a bond between people which may not have previously existed.
So why would a hanging bird bath be a make an awesome gift?
Because they work in the smallest space, because birds adore and use them, because they come in all colors and styles suiting many tastes, including copper, ceramics and glass, but most of all, fresh water attracts more birds than any birdhouse or feeder! Enough reasons? Birds who may not even use feeders will partake in fresh water at a hanging bath.
Lots of options for placement; hang it the from a tree branch, deck bracket, wall hook or garden pole with feeders. Feathered friends will find and frequent it daily. Hanging baths are ideal when their neighbor’s cat(s) is always in the wrong yard too…. grrrr, uggh! Civility is required because they’re a neighbor, but you want to have the birds too, so placing bird baths or feeders up high is always a good idea.
Did you find the perfect Mother’s Day gift yet? If not, best to shake a tail feather! Printing a nice big color photo of your gift and placing it inside a box that’s gift-wrapped is always an option if you’ve snoozed.
Another good idea to keep in mind: don’t shortchange your mom with a short-lived gift! Yeah, that’s a good one to remember because well, she’s your mother and the reason you’re here 🙂
Long-lasting gifts bring the most joy, and birding gifts bring a relaxing connection with nature… unlike jewelry or little “chatchkas” that gather dust.
Perfect for any space in the garden or even on the deck, a hanging bird bath rocks! Fresh water entices more birds to the garden, and we can promise, whether a novice or experienced birder, Mom loves to watch her feathered friends!
Hanging birdbaths can even be used as feeders, offering seed, suet, peanuts or fruit to lure migratory birds. The colorful Tiffany inspired bath above offers a traditional appeal, while contemporary styles in solid copper are most mod. Ceramic hanging baths are offered in vibrant and whimsical styles… and all are sure to entice more beaked buddies to the garden!
Why go to the trouble of finding something unique that will actually last? Because on her special day- which comes only once a year- she really does deserve something that brings smiles and real pleasure for many seasons to come!
There’s really not much time left to find that perfect gift and get it by Christmas, but offering a shopping spree at a cool store is always fun! Folks do love to browse and shop for themselves… especially when they’re not paying!
So many unique, yet bird-friendly items to be had, it might even be a difficult choice! The hanging bird bath shown includes a solar bubbler and decorative river rock. The rock helps to both camouflage the pump and offers birds better footing.
Because fresh water is the best way to entice feathered friends, moving water is even more effective! The pumps (solar and electric) are offered separately so they can be added to an existing birdbath if preferred. Leaf misters, bath drippers and water wigglers are all neat accessories with big impact. Moving water simply attracts more birds!
And that immediate, personalized gift certificate? No kidding! Purchase any an e-gift and we’ll email you a large, colorful, personalized gift card to print out and give to the recipient. Place it in a box, gift-wrap, and ta-dah… one awesome gift in hand! Tons of fun to choose from including birdhouses, feeders, garden art and more. The list is complete and shopping is done!
