Bird Lovers Gift Guide
My Nana had a love for birds that I never really understood, until I became an Empty Nester. Ironic right? What they don’t tell you is when you have an Empty Nest you have to learn who you are all over again. While it is something I’ve become accustomed too, it also is tougher on some days, while on others I cherish the silence. But what I’ve learned is this: The older you get the more you take the time to slow down and enjoy the things around you.
Some of the visitors we have in our yard include: Cardinals, Bald Eagles (occasionally), yellow finches (those are my favorite songbirds!) Then in the Spring/Summer months we have enough hummingbirds to keep me filling our 3 hummingbird feeders. It’s almost as if those birds become part of your family and they brighen your day just as much as you brighten theirs. While I’m not sure they enjoy everything we do, I like to think that the Cardinals are my loved ones visting me on days I need it most.
That’s why I decided to bring you this fun Bird Lovers Guide as February is National Bird Feeding month and let me tell you they are hungry here in Missouri during the winter. Here are just a few great gift ideas for the Bird Lover on your gift giving list!
Unique Bird Lovers Gift Idea
Looking for unique bird lover gift or idea? Why not create a national day after your favorite breed? If you have thebudget for it (one time registration fee of $995), you can name a national dayafter your favorite breed, such as National Bald Eagle Day or National SwallowDay. When you register a national day, you get credit for creating the day andcan suggest how the world should celebrate the day. You even get to pick the day of the year it is celebrated. The new national day gets permanentlylisted with all the other national days at National Day Archives. You also get a certificate of registrationto share on social media. It is a bird lover’s dream.
LovePop Bird Cards
There’s something about sending or recieving a card that makes your day just a little brighter. But the pop-up bird cards from Lovepop will brighten everyone’s day that receives one and it will be a card that they keep for years to come. These intricate 3D paper sculptures come in many bird options including hummingbirds, cardinals, bluebirds and more. In fact, there is even a bird pack of seven options! I’m going to be sending these for years to come and for every occasion.
