All under a fiver and the perfect size to fit any fire-side stocking on Christmas Eve. Sure to bring a smile to the face of any wildlife loving relative and offer a gift for nature for the birds, bees and butterflies in their garden.
1. Wildflower Seeds, £4.39
You don’t need to own a meadow to plant wildflower seeds. Just turning over a small corner of your garden or allotment to wildflowers will help to encourage bees and other pollinating insets which in turn help with the pollination of the fruit and vegetables in your patch. But not only that, they add a gorgeous splash of colour come the spring and early summer. Wildlife World wildflower seeds have been specifically chosen to attract different species including bees, birds, butterflies and even bats with evening-flowering plants. Each pack contains native species of flower which are easy to sow and quick to bloom.
2. Species Guide, £1.49
It’s all well and good attracting more wildlife into your garden, but how can you tell what’s visiting? Wildlife World has produced a selection of UK-specific Species Guides to Butterflies, Bats, Garden Birds, Bees and Bats. The perfect present for a friend or relative wanting to know more about garden wildlife. It also offers an excellent way to get children into nature by helping them to spot and identify what’s on their doorstep. Presented in a handy, easy to use format, each guide also gives information on life cycles, habitats and conservation as well as species ID.
3. Gourmet Bird Food, £3.19 to £4.50
Wildlife World’s gourmet bird food offers the perfect stocking filler for bird lovers and those concerned about the environment. Our seed is packaged in a biodegradable cellulose liner, inside a lovely reuseable jute bag that’s an incredibly cute gift.

4. Hygiene Brush Kit, £3.99
Ok, not the most glamorous of Christmas stocking fillers but an excellent present for wildlife gardening fans who aren’t great at keeping on top of their cleaning duties! The Wildlife World Hygiene Cleaning Kit means it’s incredibly easy to regular clean out bird feeders, keeping them free from disease and harmful bacteria and protecting garden birds across the country.

Inside the kit you’ll find two different brushes, including an extendable pipe cleaner brush and a double-ended toothbrush style brush for bird table tops, boxes and baths. Use in conjunction with hot soapy water made with environmentally friendly washing up liquid and always dry any feeders and nest boxes thoroughly before putting them back out.
5. Hedgehog Snack Bowl, £4.99
Encourage Britain’s most popular mammal into your garden with a Wildlife World Hedgehog Snack Bowl. Our ceramic bowl has been carefully designed to ensure little snouts can reach the food with ease.

The perfect present for hedgehog fans in your family and sure to make them smile once more in the spring when the weather warms and hedgehogs come out of hibernation looking for a tasty meal to fatten them up ready for breeding.
