Clementine Oriole Feeder
Senior digital editor Lori Vanover says, “I’ve been admiring this oriole feeder for a while. One of my neighbors has it hanging in front of her house and it’s so cute! I love to watch orioles as they migrate through our area in spring. In my yard, I also have spotted red-bellied woodpeckers eating oranges, and gray catbirds love the grape jelly.”

Back to the Roots Mushroom Growing Kit
How fun would it be to grow your own organic mushrooms—and then eat them in about 10 days! This would be a really great project to do with kids during summer while school is out. This mushroom growing kit has everything you need and only requires a small amount of counter space.
Psst—this is a great time to stock up on the best gardening apparel on Amazon.
Thermacell Mosquito Repellent Lantern
Associate editor Molly Jasinski says, “I go camping with a group of friends every summer, but I’m the only one who always ends up with all the mosquito bites! I recently purchased this Thermacell mosquito repellant lantern after seeing over 8,000 5 star reviews. I can’t wait to try it out during my next camping trip.”
Certified Peanut Free Bird Seed
Content director Kirsten Schrader writes, “My young son has a severe peanut allergy, so we must be extra careful about what we feed the birds. Store-bought suet is definitely not an option for us anymore, but I was happy to discover the certified peanut-free birdseed from Wallis Johns. It’s one of the only peanut-free birdseed options I have found on the market. Not only is it the best option for anyone with a peanut allergy to use in their backyards, especially if peanut-allergic kids frequently play outside, it’s a good alternative for schools and daycares to use for art projects in place of traditional birdseed, which might have traces of tree nuts or peanuts.”
Wingspan Board Game
Lori Vanover recommends Wingspan, which is an ideal gift for both bird and board game lovers (here’s her review). “I love the gorgeous illustrations and it’s fun to learn about more species as I play. Now that I have the basics of the game down, I would like to pick up the Europe and Oceania expansion packs,” she says.
Don’t miss these gifts for bee lovers that are worth buzzing about.
Squirrel-Buster Standard Bird Feeder
Senior editor Rachel Maidl says, “I have a few hopper-style bird feeders, but it’s time to see if my birds would be interested in a tube-style feeder. I love the added protection from hungry squirrels!”
Check out our review of the Squirrel-Buster Plus bird feeder.
Kaufman Field Guide to Birds
This field guide is written by Birds & Blooms’ official birding expert Kenn Kaufman, so the information is trusted and reliable. We would recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning to identify birds.

Kirsten Schrader says, “The Water Wiggler was recently recommended to me by our bird experts as an excellent way to attract more birds during the summer months. You can add it to any birdbath you already own. It creates continuous ripples in the water—birds love that, but the mosquitoes don’t!”
We found the best birdbaths and fountains for attracting birds.
Best Choice Products Fire Pit Table
The Best Choice Products Fire Pit Table uses a hidden 20-pound propane tank for adjustable, radiant heat that provides hours of outdoor enjoyment. And, the wicker exterior and glass beads look beautiful. Lori Vanover’s family just purchased this for their patio. “I love having a mess-free fire pit to gather around outside on summer nights,” she says. “It’s easy to light (no more struggling with logs and lighter fluid), and there’s no dangerous sparks or ashes to clean up.”
Vanguard Endeavor ED Binoculars
Perfect for on-the-go birding or to stash in the glove box of your car, these Vanguard Endeavor 8×32 binoculars are compact, lightweight and easy to hold. Kirsten Schrader says, “My husband spends a lot of time outdoors for work. These would be great for his work truck, so he won’t miss any cool sightings while birding on the job.”
Check out these top-rated binoculars for every kind of birdwatcher.
Nature Anywhere Window Bird Feeder
Lori Vanover says, “My bird feeding station is across the yard, close to the trees. A window bird feeder will allow my kids (and indoor cats) to see some birds close up!”
Cedar Bluebird House
Associate digital editor Emily Hannemann says, “I’ve spotted eastern bluebirds in my yard, and I’d like to watch them raise a family. This cedar bluebird house is endorsed by the North American Bluebird Society, so I trust it would be a good, safe home for my birds (plus, tree swallows can use it, too!)”
Psst—we found the best bluebird feeders and feeding tips.
Indoor Outdoor Multiple Flower Pot Holder
Molly Jasinski says, “I have limited outdoor space, so this stackable flower pot holder seems like the perfect way to make the most of it. Or maybe I’ll bring it indoors for my growing houseplant collection.”
