Gift Ideas for Young Naturalists

If you have young (and even not so young) nature lovers and outdoor adventurers in your life, this gift idea guide is for you. It has been thoughtfully curated to include ideas for a range of ages and interests. I hope you’ll find something that your naturalist will love.

We love pond dipping so when I saw this catch and release aquarium here, it immediately went on my gift idea list.

This pop-up netting is provides a safe way to observe little critters.

Pocket Magnifier: We have used ours so much and absolutely love it! It’s great as a stocking-stuffer gift.

This lightweight hiking backpack caught my eye. It even has a wet pocket and shoe storage!

The Laws Guide to Nature Drawing and Journaling is a great resource to have.

The Naturalist’s Notebook is a 5-year calendar style journal for tracking your observations of the natural world. We all have our own copy and I will continue to include this on every gift guide.

Our favorite sketch and watercolor pads: Canson and Pentalic.

Keep your art supplies organized and ready to grab and go with this case.

If your adventurer likes to jot notes during outings, these pads are fantastic! Grab one of their pens too.

I adore these little boxes of ideas and activities – fun for kids and helpful for adults on those “I don’t know what to do” days. I recommend checking out the winter, summer, and backyard boxes.

Learn something new every time you play Camp Board Game. And it can be played at different levels depending on the age of the players. It’s a winner in our home.

My kids love playing Wildcraft! They have so much fun and learn about uses of common herbs in the process.

For pins, stickers, magnets and frameable cards visit this Etsy shop. So cute!

My kids each own several t-shirts and some prints from this artist.

If you have a bird-lover on your gift list, these badges make great adornments. Check out her other offerings too. I’m sure you’ll find something to add to your list.

Happy Holidays!

Fondly,
