Gift Guide for Nature Lovers – International Shipping

Gift Guides

Gift Guide for Nature Lovers - International Shipping. Unique gifts for naturalists worldwide.

 

A couple of weeks ago I published a post called Gift Guide for Nature Lovers.  I found some really unique gifts for it, but unfortunately, many of the items didn’t ship outside of the United States.  Bummer.  I needed a list of nature gifts that could be shipped to naturalists worldwide (including me).  I needed a Gift Guide for Nature Lovers with International Shipping.

 

While looking for crafty stuff on Etsy the other day, I stumbled upon some really unique, earthy, handmade items.  And I was even able to find some of the ideas from my other nature themed gift guide.

 

To make life easier, I divided this gift list into 3 categories: Wearable Nature Gifts, Handmade Nature Theme Decor, and Living Nature Theme Decor.  Many of the living items on the list have Marimo moss balls in them.  If you aren’t familiar with them, Marimo balls are super low maintenance, living, mossy balls from Japan.  They are very slow-growing, and can live for 200 years.  In some families, Marimo balls are passed down from generation to generation.

 

Prices in this gift guide are listed in Canadian dollars.  To see prices in your own currency, check out the Bank of Canada Online Currency Converter.

 

*Note: prices are rounded and to be used as approximations.  Prices on Etsy can change frequently (they go both up and down).  Also sometimes shops change their terms, such as which countries they are willing to ship to.  Please let me know if you notice a change in any of the items below.
