Holidays are just around the corner and it's the perfect time for shopping. If you have a family member or a friend engaged in beekeeping, we prepared a list of the exciting gifts, starting from 5.99 dollars!
We all love to get gifts. But if you are going to buy something for an apiarist, it needs to be thoughtful. As a gift, you can choose between essential and unique things for professional beekeepers, beekeeping tools, gadgets for hobby beekeepers or some fun and unusual gifts.
Beekeepers rarely buy themselves cute, bee-autiful and fun things. Most of them restock the bare necessities during winter times, such as woodenware and frames, and order spring bees.
Now it's your turn! Here's our official holiday wish list for your special beekeeper.
First, when searching for a gift idea for a beekeeper, you should choose something useful and fun.
Small and cute gifts like this always bring a smile to a face, especially if you are a bee lover. The product is cut from beautiful natural-finish wood and then printed on one side with a festive design.
Surprise your beekeeper with this unique Christmas tree ornament and write a personal message on the back. Maybe you think it's a bit cheap for a gift, but the gesture is priceless!
Who doesn’t need a pair of socks? Especially if there are yellow honey bees on them!

The sweet golden liquid, aka honey, deserves to be served in a unique jar.

Books are always a good choice, especially during the winter, when beekeepers have more time. No matter how experienced the beekeeper is, there’s still more to learn about bees.
To fill your beekeepers' library, choose between these two books:
The Beekeeper’s Bible: Bees, Honey, Recipes & Other Uses by Richard A. Jones and Sharon Sweeney-Lynch. This book offers all the latest information that has already proven invaluable for organic beekeepers.
Natural Beekeeping: Organic Approaches to Modern Apiculture, 2nd edition by Ross Conrad’s. A part history book, part handbook and part cookbook; this is a book to be read from cover to cover.
Unique, hand-painted garden decor and accessory with eco-friendly solar eyes and one built-in battery that lasts up to 24 months.
In certain cultures, the bee symbolizes community, brightness and personal power. One thing is sure, you can’t go wrong in giving this cool and housewarming steel yard art to your favorite beekeeper.
Package of 10 pieces of beekeeping tools made of stainless steel, wood and plastic. This set includes 1 beehive smoker, 1 frame gripper, 1 bee brush, 1 beekeeping gloves, 1 uncapping fork, 1 wooden handle hive tool, 1 wire embedder, 1 bottle feeder, 1 marking cage, 1 queen catcher.
If you know someone who is a beekeeper beginner, these ten tool kits will allow him or her to easily start a beekeeping adventure. And to think of you while they whisper to the bees.
Make your beekeeper and his bees happy and surprise him or her with a new box! Superior craftsmanship and high-quality fir wood guarantee durability that will last. It includes eight deep frame boxes, eight frames and eight foundation sheets.
To install a bee package in a Langstroth hive, the beekeeper must start with either two deeper or three medium boxes. Beehives are human-made structures inside which bee colonies make their home. So why not help your beekeeper and buy a part of a bee home?
You can also paint the outside of the box and add an extra personal touch to it.
Unisex bee suit design for men and women, made from 100% pure, unbleached cotton. The untreated fabric is gentler on the skin, kinder to the bees and declared as the safest cotton suit. Elasticated waistband, cuffs and elastic thumb loops keep everything comfortably in place.
The suit has three pockets, cotton knee pads, two leg hive tool pockets, heavy-duty zippers, durable double-stitched pockets and a two-year warranty. If the budget does not limit you, we are sure that your beekeeper will be more than satisfied and grateful for this gift.
