Going really wild with your festive shopping

There are some really interesting Christmas gifts available to gardeners and wildlife enthusiasts.

The keen gardener knows the importance of natural pest control. They will enjoy the benefits of attracting ladybirds and lacewings to feast on aphids, as well as birds to pick off caterpillars. A ladybird or lacewing hibernation house or a bird box for blue tits would be ideal.

Children love growing wildlife-friendly plants such as sunflowers. There are lots of DVDs, books and CDs available on the subject of British wildlife and for a multi-purpose present you could buy a camera or binoculars.

For the person who has everything you could buy a hedgehog hibernaculum, bumblebee nest, mouse mansion, bat box (pictured), mason bee nester, or a book on garden beetles! An unusual and interesting gift for a wildlife enthusiast would be a year's membership of a wildlife charity.

Wildlife gifts can be purchased from wildlife organisations, online retailers, garden centres and book shops.
