  1. Bird feeding gift packs from the RSPB 

    If you're looking for a gift for a bird lover or nature lover, fly over to the RSPB's online shop to take a peek at their bird feeding gift packs.   Watching birds come to feed in your garden is a very enjoyable way to spend even just a few minutes and it gives a lot of people a great deal of pleasure.

    They have a number of them, including starter packs for people who would like to start feeding the birds but haven't done it before, and there are some great value packs among them.  

    Prices start at £8.99 up to £29.99 at the time of writing - the one pictured left is for £29.99 but it's actually worth £40!  

    Fly away to the RSPB's online shop here and help our feathered friends with your gift


  2. Sussex based organic beauty company Green People have a special offer on at the moment.

    Treat yourself to one of their Good for You hair and body products, and you'll get a Vita Min Fix 30ml from them for FREE!  

    This offer is only available until 31 January 2016 or while stocks last, so head over to Green People here 

    And if you're looking for a gift set, take a look at their organic gifts here - there are gifts for women, gifts for men, gifts for new mums and gifts to help the Woodland Trust!

  3. Well, I know the weather is getting chillier.... and that spring seems a bit far off... but Emma Bridgewater has launched her new Spring Collection, and among it is the very pretty Wallflower range.  

    The Wallflower range has jugs, mugs, plates, pasta bowls, teacups and saucers, tea-pots and more.  You can also personalise some (but not all) of the products.  

    There are napkins too but they went out of stock pretty quickly - hopefully there will be more in soon. 

    If you're looking for a gift for Mother's Day for mums who love flowers and gardens, you could personalise one of these gifts for your mum.

  4. If your Christmas cards are sitting in a pile at home and you're wondering what to do with them, why not take them to M&S?

    Participating stores have collecting boxes for Christmas cards and the great news is that for every 1,000 Christmas cards collected, a tree will be planted!  This scheme is operating with the Woodland Trust - it has been running for five years now.

    We all need trees for our wellbeing;   and so this is a very simple way to do your bit for the environment, wildlife and people.  

    You can drop your Christmas cards off until 31 January 2016 so don't miss the deadline!  



  5. The weather forecast tonight is saying that it is going to get colder - we can expect cold winds to sweep down from the Arctic.   Brrrrr!!!

    With this in mind, please spare a thought for our feathered friends and give them plenty of goodies to eat.

    The Garden Bird & Wildlife Co are offering 10% this weekend until midnight on Monday 11 January 2016 on all offers of wild bird food over £25.00.  Just use the code WEEKEND10.  Click here to buy your bird food.

    And don't forget to register for the Big Garden Birdwatch at the end of January 2016.  All you have to do is to visit the RSPB's website and sign up - and then spend a pleasurable hour watching and making a note of those birds you see visiting your garden.  Then it's just a matter of letting the RPSB know what you've seen.   Last year over 500,000 people took part in this event - you can pick an hour to suit you, and if you don't have a garden, just pick a local green space such as a park.  Visit the RSPB's website for more info
