Gift Idea 1- Unique Birdhouse... of course! November 10 2016
We're starting the gift guide early this year... because it always seems like time runs out!
Although we may not have the partridge, and he/she definitely won't use a birdhouse... lots of other resident birds will! Offering birds shelter has real purpose and lasting value, especially for any nature-buff on your list! Prices run from very reasonable to higher end, and you can bet these gifts will last for many seasons of successful broods, plus the selection is fun to browse.
Even during the off-season, chickadees, titmice, nuthatches, bluebirds, wrens and others will find birdhouses as a cozy roost for cold nights. Cardinals, jays, robins and goldfinches won't use a birdhouse... but you can still attract them with nesting materials and roosts... or one of our upcoming gift suggestions!
Why bother with a birdhouse at holiday?
It's actually an awesome time to install one because bluebirds (for example) are one of the earliest friendly fliers to start claiming their nest boxes. As early as February, and regardless of weather, scouts lay claim to territories and start attempting to attract a mate. Watch for the fun wing-tip and listen for their song!
In order to get birds to actually nest in a new birdhouse, timing is critical. New digs should already be available way before nesting season. The new house must be discovered and then claimed by said resident.
So many cool birdhouses... so little time!
Find handmade pottery birdhouses and one-of-kind rustic houses too. Church birdhouses crafted of vintage and reclaimed materials and carved wooden houses in the shape of cats, birds and more. The copper & vinyl classics with pure architectural elements bring lasting elegance to the landscape, while whimsical styles bring a colorful splash to the garden.
Regardless of style, our unique birdhouse selection makes it fun and easy to match the recipient's taste for a meaningful and super fun gift!
