Handmade Gifts for Nature Lovers
Nature lovers can be tricky to buy for. Sometimes I start looking for Christmas gifts at the March seed swaps or for summer birthday gifts at holiday markets.
It can take quite a while to find the right gift, so I’ve put together this gift guide for nature lovers to help you. This collection has been curated to include natural, organic, and recycled materials which have been crafted into items that will support the recipient in exploring their love of the outdoors. Your nature lover will appreciate these gifts and your support of independent crafters!
Here are 12 perfect handmade Etsy gifts for nature lovers!
1. Picnic Blanket
This Picnic Blanket is waterproof, but also very pretty! It’s handmade and also comes with a carrying strap so you can walk into your favorite little piece of heaven in nature. These blankets make beautiful gifts for nature lovers and foodies alike.
2. Bee House
This Bee House is handmade in the USA. Mason bees & leafcutters are native bees known for their ability to pollinate plants.
Mason bees can pollinate far more plants than honeybees. They are solitary and therefore have no hive to defend (meaning they don’t need to sting you to defend it!). They use mud to build nests in small cavities like the tubes in this bee house.
3. Living Necklace
This Living Necklace has a real live tiny plant in it. Just water it once a month and wear it around so it can get some light. It’s a beautiful way to bring nature anywhere!
4. Wooden Swing
This Wooden Swing is perfect for enjoying the evening breeze. It can be hung in the yard or out in the woods to create a quiet meditative space or a joyful play area. It’s made of natural oak and can be engraved with the recipient’s name if desired.
5. Harvest Basket
This Harvest Basket is perfect for collecting lettuce from the garden or wildflowers from the woods. It’s a classic old-fashioned gathering basket and can even be customized with your name or another personalized message.
6. Air Plant Terrarium Kit
This Air Plant Terrarium Kit is a lovely present for a DIY’er or home decor enthusiast. Air plants are fascinating specimen plants that don’t require soil to live. The modern hanging terrarium is a beautiful addition to an indoor garden and a great gift for a nature lover.
7. Walk In The Woods Essential Oil Gift Set
This Essential Oil Set includes 5 handmade oils, handcrafted in the USA. The maker of these pure essential oils is a Clinical Aromatherapist, so you know they’ll have an amazing fragrance!
8. Garden Gnome Earrings
These Garden Gnome Earrings make a whimsical gift for a nature lover. These are perfect for the quirky garden lover in your life!
9. Bird Seed Wreath
This Bird Seed Wreath is a perfect gift for nature lovers who aren’t into having too much stuff (or who already have everything!). These seeds will attract birds to the garden early in the season, coaxing them to set up shop eating the pest insects in the garden over the summer. Your recipient will not only benefit from the birdwatching but also from the decreased garden pests as a result of a happy bird population!
10. Stacking Wooden Rainbow
This Stacking Rainbow is a lovely gift for a little one. It’s made of real oak, ash, pine, and beech wood. This adorable rainbow is a natural toy that will teach them about different trees while also reminding them to look for rainbows.
11. Pollinator Garden Seeds
This organic seed packet of pollinator plant seeds makes a great gift for nature lovers who want to attract beneficial critters to their gardens. These seeds can be planted in a formal garden or scattered somewhere unexpected like a fence line. Their yard will be full of bees and butterflies!
