The pond is frozen over here in Michigan, and it’s only a matter of time before the bluejays are gracing our 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 a rock of the month club and botany cases, to fairy pen pals and explorer packs, there’s something for everyone wild child.  Some of the gifts below contain affiliate links, but I have only included my favorite finds I’ve collected throughout the year. Hope something catches your eye!
