I’m really pleased to be featuring gifts from the RSPB
When I was little we used to go to our local nature reserve. My mum and I would get up early, take a packed lunch and spend the whole day there. I have fond memories of sitting in hides watching birds through binoculars.
Now I have children of my own I like to encourage them to spend time outdoors. I also want them to have a healthy respect for nature. This is why I’m excited to bring you this gift guide of things I chose for my family:
RSPB Children’s Binoculars
I chose these as they are the perfect size for little eyes. They are made for children but aren’t toys. They are proper, (almost) grown-up binoculars. Big L was very impressed with them when we took them to the seaside one day. They are perfect for any nature-mad kids! The binoculars are £27.50 – click here to purchase and for more information
Hogilo Hedgehog House
We spotted a hedgehog in our garden last year and have seen evidence of him or her again this year. I was keen to encourage them to stay so this seemed like a great idea. Hedgehog numbers have been declining in recent years and they need all the help they can get.
Here is the house in our garden. We have since covered it in twigs and leaves for extra shelter. Who knows we may have a prickly friend in there already! The Hogilo Hedgehog House is a perfect alternative gift for a gardener (they like to eat slugs and snails!) or nature lover. This one is £29.99 and can be purchased here
RSPB rCUP – reusable, leakproof, insulated mug
Like many of us, as a family we are trying to cut down on our waste. We didn’t realise how often we would buy a take-away coffee. So I chose this for Monsieur Incidental as he will pick up a coffee on his way to work.
I’ve also used it in the afternoon for the school run. It stays hot for ages and truly doesn’t leak. I’d definitely recommend one! The RSPB rCUP is £12 and available here
RSPB British Birds Top Trumps
No gift guide would be complete without a stocking filler. Top Trumps are huge with primary age kids and Big L is no exception. This is a lovely collection of Top Trumps featuring British Birds.
Priced at £5.99 they make a lovely addition to a child’s stocking. They are available to buy here
Obviously there are lots of beautiful gifts available from RSPB. Including some stunning Royal Crown Derby – who knew!!
