With the holidays just around the corner, I wanted to share some gift ideas with you for children who love nature! There is such a wide variety of types of items on this list. I looked for items that I would also welcome into my own home. I had so much fun putting this gift guide for children who love nature!

I do want to point out that I have included a few books about nature, but there are so many fantastic books out there. If you need more suggestions, I would like to point you towards my list of books about Forests and books about fall.

Please do note, I put this list together to give you ideas. I am in NO way suggesting that you should buy everything on this list or even most of it. The way my husband and I do holidays is with a very strict budget (100 euro per kid). We keep our celebration small and family oriented. The gift list here is meant to inspire, not to pressure you into buying things. Every family has a different budget and a different routine for the holidays and I completely respect that.
