There is a chill in the air here in Michigan, and it’s only a matter of time before the cardinals are gracing our bird feeders again. I love this time of year, and all the joy it brings. One of my favorite things is discovering and giving that perfect gift. I’m sharing some of my favorite treasures, shops and DIY gifts in hopes that you can find something special too.

Below is my curated collection of mostly handmade, creative gifts for those nature-loving kids in your life. From personalized slingshots and flower presses to fairy kits and nature-club subscriptions, there’s something for everyone. Also, don’t miss the giveaway at the end of this post. Happy Hunting!
