This gift idea was featured on our first twelve days list back in 2013 …I’m including it again because it’s still a community favorite and glass artist Jude has made a few updates this year…

Why is this a good butterfly gift idea?

Jude has captured the stunning beauty of the monarch chrysalis by crafting hand blown glass into stunning replicas of both the vibrant jade chrysalis and the transparent almost born butterfly into exquisite pendants and earrings. In 2022, she’s added monarch butterfly pendants. Here are some of the details:

  1. Was wondering what to get for Christmas for a friends 3 year old daughter. Nothing came to mind until I saw “My, Oh My…a Butterfly! (from Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library)”. Just ordered it. Maybe a bit advanced for her but she can have years to come… Thank you for this gift suggestion!

  2. I just ordered 2 copies of, “My, Oh My – a Butterfly!” for my grandchildren! What a lovely idea. Thank you!

  3. I’m so glad to see you selling the Dr. Seuss butterfly book. It is the most accurate one I’ve ever seen and I’ve recommended many times when talking about monarchs and other butterflies.
    I read many times to my granddaughter when she was younger.

  4. After finding out that the Butterfly night light is sold out, looked at another one and found out that it was ordered by people and didn’t have lights in n it, bad reviews
    I would be interested in purchasing something but don’t want to get something that’s not good quality.

    1. Hi Rita, unfortunately, the lamp sold out shortly after we posted it…there are many other alternatives that have great reviews so I would choose one of those options if anything peaks your interest. Have a good week!

  5. Milkweed seeds are always good for friends who have gardens. I often collect the seeds and put and put in Organza bags or put a packet of seeds in a Christmas card.

  6. It looks like the lamp is sold out?
    Seeds are always a great idea, and the organza bags!

  7. I finally got to order some seeds, and it will be a good start for the future butterfly and hummingbird garden I had.
    Thank you very much, I love the magic and beautiful Monarch butterflies, from the day I saw the first tiny cat munching away to my first release here in Virginia.
