Christmas is on the horizon and this year many of us will be doing our Christmas shopping from the comfort of our own homes; scrolling through a myriad of suggestions and offers trying to find that thoughtful gift that will make someone smile on the big day. Perhaps one of the more surprising ‘silver linings’ that resulted from the Spring Lockdown earlier this year, was the appreciation and renewed love people were finding for the great outdoors and spending time outside again in nature; which blossomed in abundance as the roads turned silent. Spending time outdoors and in particular, pottering around in the garden, bought with it a very important sense of wellbeing and much needed productivity. It’s that sense of wellbeing that gardening brings that we believe you’ll be wrapping up this year as you discover some of our perfect Christmas stocking fillers for the garden lovers in your life!
Give the gift of bird song this year
Enticing birds into the garden not only brings with it joy and delight for all members of the family to watch and enjoy during their feeding antics; but they are also an important part of a well-balanced garden as birds are natural pest control – they eat slugs, caterpillars and other garden pests that all gardeners will appreciate. Birds love seeds, nuts and fats and here at Wonderpost we’ve an array of affordable gifts that are the perfect size for those ‘hard to find’ smaller stocking filler items that will also keep the wild birds fed and happy this winter;

Get those gardens buzzin again next Spring..
Did you know that 97% of native British Wildflower habitat has been lost since World War 2? Sadly, this means that wild bees and other pollinators are declining. Gardeners can help this decline by planting garden flowers that provide food for a wide variety of pollinating insects, including bees. With this in mind, and by using our WILD FLOWER BEEBOMBS you can re-create these lost habitats and help bring back the bees. These Beebombs are another great stocking filler gift idea from Wonderpost for the insect and garden lover in your life.
Hand made in Dorset, Beebombs are a mix of 18 British wildflower seeds, fine, sifted soil and locally sourced clay. They need no gardening skill and can be scattered straight onto open ground at any time of the year. Once scattered, Beebombs just need lots of water, sun and time. Beebombs help to create a wildflower meadow that will in turn, help bring the bees back and create a buzz around your garden next summer! We even have a special Christmas limited edition of Beebombs complete with a lovely Merry Christmas tag ready to pop inside that stocking - no gift wrap required!
We hope that you’ve enjoyed browsing through these affordable and easy stocking filler suggestions for the gardeners in your life. We wish all our customers a very merry and healthy Christmas 2020 – and thank you for your support from us all at the Wonderpost family.
