Looking for a handmade gift for someone who loves nature? These gifts for nature lovers are perfect for the outdoor enthusiast or gardener on your list. Best of all, these gift ideas are all handmade and available to order online from Etsy! What would your nature lover like?
We love giving handmade gifts in our household as they are often lovingly made out of natural materials. Winter can mean more time indoors, so having a little bit of the outdoors inside (or having something to inspire future outdoor days) can be wonderfully uplifting. Gardeners can start planning their gardens in January (or even in the fall) while hikers start dreaming of future trips years in advance!
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’s 12 perfect handmade Etsy gifts for nature lovers! Pin them to your wish list or secret shopping list :)
1. Picnic Blanket
This Handmade Picnic Mat is waterproof, but also very pretty! It’s handmade in the USA 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 Bottle House is handmade in the USA using an up-cycled bottle. 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. Find this Bee Bottle House on Etsy.
3. Living Necklace
This Mini Plant Pot Necklace With Living Succulent 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! Find this handmade Mini Plant Pot Necklace With Living Succulent on Etsy.
4. Wooden Swing
This lovely swing is made in the USA by a small woodworking shop. It’s made of natural pine and can be engraved with the recipients name if desired. Find this Classic Handcrafted Wooden Swing on Etsy.
