I originally wrote this post for Christmas but all these items make fabulous gifts for wildlife lovers all year round!
Please think about buying handmade and ethical this Christmas. You not only get a lovely gift but charities also benefit. There are lots of charities that sell products to raise funds for their work. My hedgehog rescue is entirely self-funded and I make jewellery to raise funds. I make all of the jewellery from recycled silver.
Here are some other ideas to help you shop ethically this Christmas, all of which support wildlife; from adopting a hedgehog through to being a wildlife rehabilitator for the day. I’ve also included some gifts that don’t give to charity but will help wildlife in other ways. Why not give a hog a home?
Happy shopping and thanks for buying gifts that give back!
If you have any other suggestions for great ethical gifts for wildlife and nature lovers, please get in touch!
Seedball – gorgeous tins of seeds for growing a wildlife meadow and bee/butterfly friendly borders
Provide a beautiful mosaic drinking bowl in your garden for visiting hedgehogs and other wildlife – I love these wildlife inspired designs and they are the perfect height for wildlife.
I run a hedgehog hospital in York. My work is entirely self funded. You can also support my work here.
