5 Unique Stocking Stuffers for Bird Feeders

It struck me that bird watchers and feeders are a challenging group to shop for: We have our feeders and birdseed…that’s about it for essentials. So, here’s a gift guide of unique and affordable stocking stuffers for the bird lover on your list (or yourself!).

I also have a roundup of super unique bird feeders you can find on Amazon linked here.

If any of these tickle your fancy, click the link on the item title or its image to be taken to its Amazon page for purchasing.

5. Fowl Language Bird Coffee Mug

A Fowl Language Bird Coffee Mug. The mug has birds on it with tit references.
Who wouldn’t want to drink coffee out of a Tit mug in the morning?

This one is self-explanatory. I’m a sucker for a fun coffee mug and this design delivers. You may just want to skip on bringing this one into the office…

Here’s a video of another similar mug if you’re looking for something different:

My wife and I have this mug and love it.

2. A Mini-Tire Swing Bird Feeder

Bird seed goes into the inside of the tire. Easy and fun!

This (ceramic) tire swing feeder is another fun way to feed your birds while giving them the same joy you felt on the elementary school playground tire swing. It’s affordable too. This is a smaller feeder and you should take caution to hang it out of reach of squirrels, who could easily chew through the hanging string. Let’s be honest though, this is more for decoration and fun versus feeding as many birds as possible.

3. Spicy Festive Bird Seed Bells

Everything you need for an instant bird feeder that squirrels will avoid!

This is a great stocking stuffer that acts as an instant bird feeder. The bird seed is already stuck together into the shape of a bell. You can hang these outside anywhere and birds will love them. They’re spicy, so squirrels and chipmunks will be deterred from gobbling them up.

4. Nyjer Seed Sock Feeders

Another instant bird feeder! These Kaytee nyjer seed socks are a hit for Goldfinches, but are also great for Pine Siskins and House Finches. The socks are also re-fillable!

5. The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America

A Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America.
Don’t miss this as a guide or a funny addition to your coffee table.

This book is hilarious. It’s a field guide with fun art, but each bird has an insulting depiction. A must-read for any bird watcher for a great laugh.
