Gift Guide: For the Apiarist or Honey Bee Lover

December 20, 2013

Whether you know someone who dons the white suit and does the noble work of beekeeping, or someone whose relationship to bees is more one of admiration from afar, here are gifts for the bee-loving set.

 

Above: The Beekeeper’s Bible ($35 from William-Sonoma) is the prettiest book on beekeeping I’ve seen. Perhaps not the best book for an expert beekeeper, it’s a lovely primer for the armchair apiarists among us.

 Above: A maple wood Honey Dipper; $8 from Alder & Co. Made in Vermont.

Above: And the accompanying glass and teak Honey Jar; $35 from Alder & Co. Made by a husband and wife team in Thailand, committed to using wood from managed forests and leaving the it chemical finish-free.

 

Above: Stocked with a few essentials for getting started (smoker, fuel, hive tool, and bee brush), The Beekeeping Tool Kit is $49.99 from Grow Organic.

Above: What’s a beekeeper without her hives? The Painted Backyard Beehive looks like a perfect beginner hive; $349.95 from Williams-Sonoma.

For more bee-related gifts, see the roundup that Kendra put together last year: Gift Guide: For the Beekeeper.
