Our Holiday Gift Guide for Bee Lovers

With Christmas just around the corner, we are wrapped up in all things holiday here at Magnolia Roots.  Between snowy winter hikes and perfecting our hot cocoa game, we've been busy finding that perfect gift for our loved ones.  While we may still be stumped on what toys will hold our kids' attention for more than the amount of time it will take to wrap all of their presents, one thing we do know is bees.  And our guess is if you found your way to our blog, you, or someone on your list has a thing for bees.  In the spirit of shopping small this season, we thought we would round up a list of our favorite bee products for your bee lover, so you can spend more time learning how to pronounce hygge and less time shopping online.  Our list includes many of our own favorite small businesses and beekeepers, as well as a handful of tried and true bee-based products.


For the Chef

Our favorite way to preserve all of those holiday leftovers!  Bee's Wrap is made of beeswax and is sustainable and reusable...just give it a quick rinse between uses and air dry!

 

Louisiana-based bee stewards, Jennings Apiaries, hit the spot with their Spicy Honey Cider Tonic.  Packed full of goodness like apple cider vinegar, roots, herbs, veggies and of course, raw honey, you can add some flavor to your holiday recipes while warding off that winter cold.


 

Whip up your holiday dinner in our Save The Bees apron. Make a statement in the kitchen and for the environment!  


 

 

 

Our favorite cookbook is from The Asheville Bee Charmer. It's beautiful, educational and with so many delicious new ways to use honey, you'll never use sugar again!


For the Homebody

 

Light this candle by Nashville Wax Co. for 96 hours of cozy vibes. Made of 100% pure beeswax and essential oils, we can't get enough of these safe and yummy candles.


 

 

The Herbal Dream Pillow by Under A Tin Roof...I mean do we even need to say more?  Take this mix of sleepy herbs anywhere you may feel a nap coming on. You can even pop it in the microwave on those snowy days ahead for the ultimate in snuggling comfort.  Also great for pets and little ones! 

 

Cozy up to one of our personal favorites. This award-winning whipped cinnamon honey from Bare Honey is packed full of health benefits and the perfect addition to whip cream (we told you our cocoa game was strong), spread on toast, stirred into tea...or right off the spoon.  Not responsible for addictive behaviors.


 

Our favorite bedside table bee book.  Cozy up with this little gem and learn about everything from bee mythology to how to care for your hive to some honeyed recipes. Find it here.


For the Babes 

 

Perfect for your little one, our Baby Bee onesie comes in gender-neutral cream and yellow AND has a Mama Bee tee to match! 

 

We adore these handmade beeswax birthday candles by The Hall of Flames.   Check out her sweet beeswax mini blocks too. 

 

 

These sweet honey sticks from Bare Honey are sure to keep your little one occupied.  You can feel good about indulging them (or yourself) with this award-winning honey.

 

Great for both adults and kids alike, The Bee Book is brimming with bee knowledge and beautiful illustrations. The cherry yellow and gold foil cover make it perfect for gift giving.

What is more in the spirit of the season than giving back?  We love all things  Burt's Bees Baby, so when we saw the launch of their new Baby Bee Box with Save The Children we were over the moon.  When you buy this box full of all things baby, they will donate one just like it to a family in need.


 

This oversized book about bees for little readers and non-readers alike is a hit thanks to the gorgeous and equally hilarious illustrations.  With fun and interesting facts on every page, our kiddos can't put it down!


For the Ladies

We love this tee whether you are a mother of bees or a mother of babes.

 

"Bee" good to your lips with our beeswax lip balms in four sweet flavors.  100% of the proceeds from all lip balms support the Bee and Butterfly Habitat Fund!

 

We can hardly wait to get our hands on this embroidery kit from Jill and Kayla at Under A Tin Roof.  The perfect activity for slowing down a bit and savoring these winter months.

 

You won't know whether to top this salt scrub with marshmallows or use it on your winterized elbows!  Beemindful's Cacao-Peppermint Honey Salt Scrub is simply holiday perfection!


For the Gents

 

Because if you are going to grow a beard, your face should smell like you are wearing red flannel and carrying a big axe through the woods. Grab this natural conditioner and styling cream for yourself (or your man) here.


 

We love ALL the soaps in the Bee Rugged line from the folks at Bee Lovely Botanicals. Check them out here!

 

Jennings Apiaries does it again with their Tattoo Care balm.  Not just for the boys, this balm is perfect for protecting your tattoos as well as any other troublesome skin care needs without the use of petroleum or other harsh chemicals.
What are some of your favorite bee-based items?  Do you have a local bee-keeper you support?  We would love to hear about it in the comments below!  We hope our little list helps you find the perfect gift for your bee lover.  By choosing to shop small you are supporting farms and families that are busily filling your orders and able to fill their own stockings for their families thanks to those orders.  Thank you to all the shops for participating in our round up of items for this holiday season!  Happy Shopping Folks!
