Holiday Gift Ideas For Your Feathered Friends

The holidays are fast approaching, and our feathered friends deserve a special gift too!  Or maybe you have a special friend or relative who has a bird, and you just can’t think of something to give this holiday season. Either way you want these gifts to be unique.

The good news is that even the smallest gift can make a big impact on a pet bird to help stimulate his curiosity and to add enjoyment. And a bird related gift will make even a bigger impact on the bird lover in your life, as you recognize the love they share with their feathered friend.    

Here’s some gift ideas for pet birds. 

Perches – choose different sizes and textures so your bird can exercise his feet

Treats – try something new, but keep treats in moderation so they don’t upset your bird’s feeding program

Bath perches and toys – if your bird loves to play in the shower, pamper him with some fun things to do while he’s splashing around

Paper scrap box – does your bird like to shred things? Collect scrapes of safe paper, and let him go wild with excitement as he digs through the box

Play stands – these are perfect to place in your home and it allows your bird to be near you but in a safe and playful location

Toys – of course toys, but not too many at a time. Make sure toys don’t have anything that can detach or have sharp pieces, rope or twine that can choke him or catch up his foot

Harness – if your bird is on the go with you, get him a harness to keep him safe and in your control. They now come in cute colors and even like jackets and hoodies

Make a video – we bet your bird can ham it up and he would love to see and hear himself on a video. These are easy to make on most cell phones

Set up a social media page for your bird – this is a great way to keep family members and friends together to share your bird with your community

Write a poem or story about your bird – you will love doing this and so will he. Add pictures and you can publish this with easy-to-use resources on the internet

Foraging food – add a little something special to his food cup to give him food he can play with and sort through for his eating enjoyment. Feed this later in the day after he’s had his pellets.

Gift ideas for the bird owner in your life

Jewelry – there’s so many options for earrings, rings, necklaces, and bracelets to show off a bird species. Pinterest and Etsy are great options for customized selections
