I have scoured the web for beautiful bee-inspired gifts, and here are my top picks. I have included a range of items, to suit a range of tastes and interests including books, clothes, jewellery, and even on-line courses, and whilst some of them may have affiliate links, I only ever recommend anything I really love myself.
1. On-line courses
Learn how to create a wildlife or perennial meadow garden or other garden course on line for as little as £35 about $45 or €41.00.
You can also learn beekeeping online, again for the same price.
Click on the image below to find out more about a beekeeping course with Phil Chandler. I have known Phil for years. He is the author of several beekeeping books, and he has a helpful beekeeping forum at Biobees.com.
I love books, and there are many I recommend on this website. However, if I were to select just a small handful....
For beekeepers, I would select Thomas D. Seeley The Lives Of Bees.
It's not a book that teaches beekeeping, but it is a book that collates years of wisdom and research on honey bees live and thrive in the wild, and what beekeepers can learn from that.
For general interest about the bees of North America, you could hardly do better than Wilson & Messinger Carril - The Bees In Your Backyard.
Renowned author and 'bees professor', Dave Goulson shares his adventures on a hunt for the world's most elusive bees from Poland to Patagonia in Bee Quest!
Learn more about insects of Britain and Ireland, with this superb book (which also happens to be good value for money given its size and scope): Britain's Insects - A Field Guide To The Insects Of Great Britain And Ireland by Paul D Brock
Brilliant Bees puzzle book for kids.
