Christmas 2020 is going to be very different for all of us but we at the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales are determined to help you make it one to never forget with an array of fabulous gift ideas.
Here are our top 5 picks for 2020, with all money raised from sales going towards our work for wildlife and crucially to help us continue our work in the future during this uncertain time.
- Wildlife Trusts 2021 Calendar
The Wildlife Trusts produce an annual calendar featuring stunning photography of native flora and fauna from around the UK, and has been our top selling line every year for the past decade. These large wall calendars are super handy for noting down important dates such as birthdays and appointments, and brighten up any room with vivid images. Materials used in producing the calendar are sustainably sourced, fully recyclable and packaged in biodegradable cellophane for absolute minimal environmental impact.
- Wildlife Adoption Packs
A fantastic alternative Christmas gift idea are our Wildlife Adoption packs. You can choose to support five different species – badgers, hedgehogs, puffins, red squirrels or seals and have the packs made up as a gift to your chosen recipient. Each pack contains a personalised certificate, a fact sheet and a cute and cuddly soft toy, and each year a report is sent out about how the chosen species is doing and what work we have done as an organisation to protect and enhance the environment for these species.
- Puffin gifts
Everybody loves puffins! We have an extensive range of puffin related products on offer, including handy notepads, home and kitchenware, magnets, tea towels, mugs and more! One of our favourite stocking fillers is the Bobble Hat Puffin light pull which doubles as tree decoration and triples as a friendly buddy for a rear view mirror!
Many of our puffin gifts have been made in the UK and feature lovely artwork designed by Emma Ball.
If you are struggling to decide which of our brilliant products to buy and cannot make up your mind what to get, then why not try out our Mystery Puffin Gift Box! It is filled with lots of lovely puffin gifts, plus it comes with a blank greetings card and gift tag so you can put your own personal message in the box too!
We also have some lovely products designed and created in Pembrokeshire that are Skomer Island branded. These include travel mugs, mouse mats, ceramic tile coasters & pot stands, and metal and wooden signs. Shop our Skomer Island range here
