Fun stocking fillers for animal lovers
It’s time to get all those last little Christmas presents sorted and stockings filled. Luckily Folksy is perfect for finding all kinds of gifts. As an animal and wildlife lover, I’ve been looking at all the wonderful animal-themed gifts on Folksy and have found lots of beautiful, original and cute things, which would be perfect for wildlife lovers as well as fans of handmade.
This sweet little pottery mouse would love to be discovered on Christmas morning, curled up at the bottom of somebody’s stocking. Handmade in Scotland, he’s one of a range of ceramic animals from Weebogles, along with tiny panda bears, dogs, polar bears, birds and cats which are all just as cute.
Another mouse that caught my eye is one that lives in his own matchbox house. Matchbox Mouse by Ena Green contains all the materials you need to make your own mouse including felt, thread and stuffing and would be ideal for making over the Christmas season.
Notebooks are perfect for stockings and very useful too and there are some beautiful illustrated ones on Folksy including this pretty-in-pink bison one by Ella Osborne…
… and this patterned bear notebook by The Owlery which comes with either lined or plain paper.
There are some beautiful brooches on Folksy. Polar bear lovers would be pleased to receive this geometric laser cut bear brooch from Rare Folk…
… while this brightly coloured cute-clawed crab by Tomsky Store is perfect for fans of sea-dwelling animals.
There are also beautiful marine life themed brooches including this happy soft whale brooch from Crafty Sparkle.
This fish brooch by Jane V Shorten Textile Art is finished with delicate hand-embroidered sea plants.
Sloth lovers meanwhile can pin on this smiley face wooden sloth brooch by Ginger Pickle, which is also available as a necklace, hairpins and earrings too.
Folksy also has some great wildlife-themed gifts for coffee and tea lovers, including this mug with its friendly-looking and beverage-minding moose by Bear Print Design.
Polar bear fans will love this Arctic-inspired mug from Boodle Boutique…
… and this sweet polar bear trio by Kittiwake Designs (along with lots more wooden wildlife), which would look lovely perched on a bookshelf.
Tote bags are always handy and this bag with its handsome hippo on it by Clare Sherwen would be great for wildlife lovers and environmentally conscious friends.
Finally this coral-red block-printed fish by Hannah Madden Printmaker will remind any wildlife lover, young or old, to stay curious and to ‘never stop exploring’ the wonderful world of animals.
