Make this December one to remember with our wild and wonderful online shop!

With just four weeks to go until the big day, you may be experiencing the mild panic and sense of impending shame that comes from having no idea what to give your loved ones for Christmas.

Dad’s sock drawer is full, the marzipan fruits you bought Nan last year are still festering in the cupboard, and as for your other half, all the Toblerones in the world won’t make up for the great slanket disaster of 2016.

This year, why not try something a bit different? Research has shown that experiences make us far happier than ‘stuff’ – the novelty of having the latest gadget or a stylish new outfit quickly wears off, whereas a thoughtfully chosen experience can stick around for a lifetime.

We at the Wildlife Trusts believe there is no gift more precious than the opportunity to experience the natural world. With this in mind, we have organised a huge variety of interesting events and courses for the New Year.

If you need a gift for a budding Bear Grylls, what could be better than a weekend of bushcraft, or a session learning to track wild animals? We have courses, walks and talks to cater for a whole range of interests, from digital wildlife photography to the constellations in the night sky.

However, if you’re after a more traditional gift, we are working with local artists and producers to sell nature themed products, perfect for the wildlife enthusiast. Luxury hampers, handmade toiletries, beautiful one off pieces of jewellery and arts and crafts kits are just a handful of the delightful range of items we have on sale.

We really do have something for everyone, and best of all, each and every purchase helps local wildlife. So, if you’re dreaming of a wild, wonderful Christmas for your friends and family but don’t know where to start, don’t get your tinsel in a twist – take a look at our online shop! You’re sure to find just what you need to make this December one to remember.
