Twelve days of Butterflies- Butterfly Gift Ideas for 2023

12 Butterfly Gifts for Happy Holidays

Twelve Butterfly Gift Ideas for Christmas and the holidays. 12 Days of Butterflies 2023

Butterflies are a source of joy and inspiration to many. While monarchs and other winged beauties have departed for warm weather destinations, these butterfly gift ideas help keep them close to our hearts, while awaiting their triumphant return next spring.

They also present an opportunity to share the joy of butterflies with others…

Below are 12 fantastic gift ideas for a butterfly lover in your life or some ideas to pass along to someone trying to make you happy for the holidays. Over the next three weeks new butterfly gifts will be posted here, until I’ve revealed all twelve gift ideas on Saturday, December 10th.

  1. Caterpillar Cages with CLEAR MESH for 4-side Viewing Is my favorite gift. This is really needed and a great gift idea. I want one.

  2. You offer so many great ideas that I want for myself! But I would choose a gift card for my daughter because she is so hard to buy for, she is so very picky but I know I could give a gift card from you and she would use it. Last year she made a homemade cage and had success with three butterflies so I know she’d appreciate one that is easy to use and clean.

  3. Day 11 I would love the Flower and Butterfly planers.. My 94 year old father had a stroke earlier this year and I keep a daily planner next to him to help him know what day it is and what appointments are coming up. I also use one to keep track of his appointments for me and record his vital signs every day.

  4. I would gift #8 the clear sided mesh butterfly cage to a friend that is just starting her butterfly raising journey. She will love it!

  5. I would love to get the butterfly calendar. I love butterflies and love to use calendars, so this would be great for me and great for my friends who also love Monarchs and other butterflies.

  6. Oh my – There are SO many gifts and a wonderful selection. I would love to give any of these gifts to friends. For me personally, I would love the Butterfly Nightlight. It’s so pretty and the colors looks soothing.

  7. I would love to give or receive the beautiful butterfly calendar.

    1. Because everyone can use a calendar, but not everyone raises monarchs!

  8. Day 9 The floral tube & short peg feeding system.
    This is a great gift to give or receive.
    I already have a set & have a small hole set of lids. They are easy to use & easy to clean. In September I present a Monarch program at our city’s Nature Center. This system travels well! This was the 1st year with no tipped over milkweed containers!

  9. I would love the poo-poo platter! This was my first year raising monarchs and clean up would certainly be easier with that item! By the time that I thought about ordering one it was out of stock. Looking forward to another successful year of raising monarchs!

  10. The butterfly calendar . I would put it on my night table so when I woke up in the morning I would see it immediately — How can I NOT have a great day when i wake up to that?!

  11. I would actually gift the #7 Small PooPoo Platter because people probably don’t realize how important it is to keep the cages clean. And it is a great tool to be able to carry the Poo to a container to make “Caterillar Poo Tea” to water your plants with. I do this every year. I would love to recieve the #9 Floral Tubes and Short Peg Rack because I am at the stage where this would be a new level to introduce to my schoola aged classroom to keep thier attention on raising butterflies and introduce hydroponic growing. Of course # 12 is awesome and I would love to give And recieve it!

  12. Beautiful butterfly blessings with Majestic Monarch madness 🦋 All the gifts are amazingly unique for many useful purposes. I would like them all, so the gift card is the best to give.

  13. I think the Day 12, Gift card, is the best idea. You can use it to get supplies you need or give it to a neighbor that raises and releases over 100 butterflies a year and always needs supplies replenished!

  14. Day 12 (gift cards) would be the gift that I would choose to give. This gift is better because there are many items to choose from, that it would be best to have that person pick out what they may want. If they are a beginner they may want books to help them get started or if they are intermediate or advanced, they may want to gather more supplies.

  15. I think I would most like to receive and give the gift certificates because there are so many great products that it is difficult to choose for someone else. I would probably use my gift card to buy some of the tubes and racks and a tall cage because I have run into problems providing enough milkweed for caterpillars without using one of my potted milkweeds, and they are too tall to fit in the smaller cube I have.

  16. So in love with the INVISImesh Monarch tower!! This would make it so much easier to view the cats grow & grow without moving/jostling the cage. I’ve gotten a few of my coworkers into helping save the monarchs and would love to be able to share this with them too!!

  17. Just as in the first contest, I love all the gifts. I really like the cages with the poo-poo platters. The Milkweed holders are great. The planners are wonderful. The gift I would most like to give or receive is the gift card #12. It is the most practical because the person who receives it can choose which gift they would like.

  18. I work in the public schools in early childhood and started a pollinator garden at my school. I would like the books about butterflies to share with my preschoolers to compliment their knowledge about butterflies and the garden

  19. I think the best gift is a cage, especially the new ones for easy viewing. It’s the first step in starting to raise caterpillars. Frankly, I’d love to see a cage/rack/tubes bundle, which would be perfect for getting started. This is a particularly good gift for teachers who teach the life cycle of insects/butterflies so they can raise them in their classrooms.

  20. I would like gift #12
    The gift card
    This would be my choice because I could browse the many items and choose something I need or something to give as a gift.

  21. I would like to receive the raising cage so I could get started with this engaging activity!

  22. I would like to receive the Monarch Butterfly Life Gift Certificate because I’ve been wanting to order a small baby monarch butterfly cage, but the store is out of stock.

  23. The gift I would most like to have is Day 8, the cage with the mesh sides. I would most like this gift in order to see more clearly what all the caterpillars are getting up to.

  24. I would love to get and give the butterfly gift card
    because it gives the opportunity to purchase whatever is needed to raise butterflies or to purchase the book with all the information to reference to have much success in raising Monarchs.

  25. I would love to receive the Flower & Butterfly Planner.
    I have a journal for all of my seed starting & planting, but my Monarch notes, eggs/cats found, hatching, size instars, chrysalis formed & eclose are on sticky notes. Not good!

  26. I would like another set of short floral racks. I have a few tall racks and only 1 short rack and had to move several chrysalis off the tall posts this past year. The clear mesh tents would be great too since I have no protected outdoor space and raise my cats indoors.

  27. The planner would make a great gift. It can keep you organized which some people could benefit from that.

    1. I have incorporated the poo poo platter and it makes cleaning the cages much easier and easier to find a young caterpillar who may have lost footing and fallen

  28. I would start with a cage as a starter piece . I think that’s what would be needed the most if you want to raise the butterflies. Then you can always add to it.

  29. I would love to give any of the supplies to a friend who is just starting out. The gift card would also be good. So hard to choose just one!

  30. The tall cage would be perfect because I want to start raising butterflies outdoors.

  31. Day 10 – the wall calendar would be a perfect gift for me – I love calendars with great photos and artwork!
    I love all the raising supplies. I have them all but would purchase the see-through house, the tubes and stands for someone new to raising caterpillars.

  32. I would love to receive the Day 9- Floral Tubes & Short Peg Racks System. We created our first butterfly garden this past spring, which is still an expanding work in progress. We had more bees than butterflies this year and ended up rescuing waterlogged bees during a storm! We released them once they were safe and energized. One ended up being a queen! This coming season we are hoping to help butterflies too. This tube and peg system seems absolutely perfect to feed caterpillars in the butterfly houses we already have. We are looking forward to doing our part to help the butterfly population!

  33. Just like 1 commenter said You can never have too many milkweeds, I say you can also never have too many butterfly cages! And the tall baby cage is the perfect size! Sadly, Monarchs did poorly in my area this past season. But the black swallowtails and spicebush swallowtails thrived and helped compensate for the grief- but we ran out of cages! We also had a Tiger Swallowtail and Red Admiral that had to get put in mesh paint strainer nets, who looked at us wondering, Why don’t we get our own cage?

  34. Day 10 – Butterfly Wall Calendar is the gift I would most like to receive! I live for butterflies! I put stickers on my planner, my kitchen cabinets and other things. I gift away butterfly hair clips, stickers & more. But I don’t have a Butterfly Wall Calendar and would LOVE to have one!

  35. Day 9 … floral feeding tubes. I have these & they are awesome!!! I don’t think I could keep up with their feeding habit without them!

  36. I would love to receive or give the caterpillar cage with the viewing window. I raised caterpillars this summer and had success using the caterpillar cages. I would like to be able to use more than one cage. I have a friend who wants to raise caterpillars as well. This would be a great gift.

  37. I would like to give the $50.00 gift card as a gift. I have a friend that wants to start helping the butterflies, this would help her buy her starter items. What a wonderful gift for Christmas.

  38. I love the poo poo platter, LOL, the name made me giggle and think of A Bug’s Life.

  39. The butterfly lamp! Very cool gift, that I haven’t seen before.

  40. I would love to receive the milkweed seeds. You can always use or share more milkweed plants.

  41. I would like to receive milkweed seeds. Because, well, can you really ever have too many milkweeds? 🙂

  42. I like the butterfly t- shirts. I have a Monarch T and have worn it this summer. Twice people have commented on the shirt and I explained how I raise and release Monarchs.
    I also like the Butterfly Night-Lite. Two of my G-Daughters would love those.

  43. Milkweed seed packets are always welcome as a gift for me. I find giving seed packets is a great way to spread the news about monarch butterfly host plants

  44. I would love to give or receive # 5 – the butterfly garden flags. That way I could or my recipient could enjoy the butterflies all year long in their garden. 🙂

  45. All of the gifts are great! If I had to pick I would love to give or receive #3 the lamp and/or #5 the flags. I like the lamp because it’s beautiful and a good way to express the beauty of butterflies all year. The flags are a great way to promote butterfly education. I’m amazed at how many people aren’t aware of the plight of the Monarchs. I’m always thrilled to share what I know to others.

  46. Would love the milkweed seed. You can never have too many milkweed plants when you help the monarchs out. Have successfully had several monarchs emerge. Love them in all stages.

  47. I’ve raised monarchs for the past 5 years and this year I had 128 successfully emerge. I have a friend who is my monarch egg supplier (from her many many milkweed plants) and I would love to give her yet another butterfly shirt. I also raise milkweed but my neighbor has a lawn service so unfortunately I don’t get anywhere near the same number of eggs as does my friend. Thank you for all you do on this site.

  48. I would love to receive Day 6.
    Any book I find on Butterfly’s, I enjoy sharing with my 5 year old grandson. For the last two years, he has helped me in my pollinator garden plant and care for the Milkweed, eggs, and Caterpillars. He really enjoys releasing the butterflies and sharing what he has learned with all his friends this year in kindergarten.

  49. I would most like to receive day 4, the milkweed seeds. This is because I love to have my garden filled with milkweed for all the local butterflies.

  50. I think the best Christmas gift is the milkweed seed as I have all of the other stuff that I need, and the milkweed seed not only helps the monarch cause, but hopefully will replenish the supply of food and home for the monarchs as they develop from egg to butterfly.

  51. I would most like to receive the personalized butterfly lamp. My sister passed away this summer and she always helped raise monarchs. It would be a nice memorial lamp in her memory.

  52. I would love the Peace on Earth- Monarch Butterfly T-shirt because what is most inportant now is peace and of course butterflies.

  53. I love the butterfly lights and books for my kids. But someone posted about using the milkweed packs to go on Christmas gifts and I think that is a genius idea!!!

    1. I love the 1st day of Christmas gift. The “Swiftie” inspired sweatshirt. My 9 year old is a Tay-Tay fan and we raise thousands of butterflies every year so it would be a fitting gift for her.

  54. I prefer the Taylor Swift INSPIRED Butterfly Sweatshirt. It is useful when shopping in my community and will elicit comments from other gardeners.

  55. It’s a hard choice because I love everything butterfly but I love to buy a bunch of the milkweed seed packets. They make great stocking staffers or even attached to the top of packages. That way more people can grow milkweed and that means more monarchs can eat and be healthy!

  56. This is a great idea….I have two grand nephews and I think the books would be a wonderful present, thanks

  57. The gift I would like to receive OR give is the butterfly night light lamp. I just love butterflies and the nightlight would be a great addition to my room.

  58. I would love to give the butterfly books to my two grandchildren that are 10 and eight. I was unlucky this year and only saw two monarchs and no caterpillars. They used to help me send them off when they live nearby but being a Coast Guard family they are now many states away from me.

  59. As an aunt to many I would like to gift the personalized butterfly light as it would help me share my love for butterflies and the outdoors.

  60. I would love to receive the Taylor Swift butterfly sweatshirt. I like Taylor Swift’s music and so do my girls. I live in Kansas City and love following the Kelcie and Taylor Swift love affair too!

  61. The gift I would most like to receive would be the milkweed seeds. The gift I would most like to give would probably be the books. I have a number of young grand nieces and nephews, and I love to give them educational books (and they love receiving them).

  62. I would love to win the milkweed seeds #4.
    The reason I chose the seeds is because we recently moved and are starting over with our garden. I also love to be able to share seeds with friends and neighbors.

  63. All the gift ideas are great!Myy favorite are the night lights that are perfect for the little ones to use in their rooms at night.
    Iihave 3 granddaughters that are learning b how to care for our Monarchs as they help me release them into three sky!

  64. Definitely the Milkweed seeds! We can talk to people and try to spread the word about how monarchs are endangered, but with the seeds, we can GIFT someone with the solution! And knowing these are from a trusted source is important as well. The other items are nice, but (other than the book) I’d prefer to give or receive something that will help our Monarchs instead of more disposable “stuff.” : )

  65. I’m a big fan of butterflies, so I would most like to receive the butterfly sweatshirt. It’s so pretty! I hope I win the butterfly cage! My son and I try to raise a few monarchs throughout the summer, and we could really use something better than the big glass jar we currently use.

  66. My personal choice would be the gift bags for seeds. I do many garden club, civic clubs and school group presentations about native plants, gardening for the pollinators and monarchs. I have an abundance of seeds collected from my milkweed plants and would love to use the bags to give seeds to participants in my programs.

  67. It would be the gift of milkweed! I really am deeply concerned about the loss of habitat for Monarchs. I can see the decline in my area over the past 10 years and I know if I don’t act, and attract others to their plight, then it will greatly impact their success. My why includes the above but the real why – I feel called to do it and make a difference.

  68. I read in the email I received that I’m supposed to comment and tell you which of the aforementioned butterfly gifts I would most like to have. I must say that I would love to have all of those fabulous gifts! But if I had to chose one gift, I would choose the seeds. I have a good crop of milkweed growing in my yard every year, and those produce many, many seed pods. I love handing out seeds to everyone in my little town, but I only have one kind of milkweed. I’d love to have more plants and more seeds to share with everyone in town!

  69. All of the butterfly gifts are lovely but I would be the most interested in the milkweed seeds.
    I want to expand my butterfly garden and register it as a monarch waystation next year.
    I will name it Mac’s Monarch Waystation after my new grandson 😍

  70. Every time I release one of “my babies” into the wild, I hope that my small part is helping to further the life of the beautiful Monarch butterfly. I would like to represent the butterfly world by having a hooded sweatshirt for our cold Central NY winter.

  71. The Butterfly Gift Idea I would most like to give is the Personalized Butterfly Night Light Lamp for my niece. She is starting to learn about the caterpillars and butterflies so she would really like the butterfly design. And she is still young enough where the dark night is a little scary so the night light helps her not to be so scared.

  72. As a librarian, I love the children’s books you shared. But I would really love the green butterfly t-shirt for myself. I love the colors! My daughter, a huge Swiftie fan, would love the sweatshirt though!

  73. I would like to get “The Little Butterfly that Could” book because my grandsons would love it!

  74. I would most like the gift cards for Joyful Butterfly or Etsy, to buy milkweed plants and nectar plants. I have 5 different varieties of milkweed in our yard. I purchased plants from both Etsy and Joyful Butterfly this year, and was happy with my plants. We have a huge backyard that we don’t use, as we are both senior citizens and have health issues. My goal is to turn it into a wildflower oasis for pollinators.

  75. The gift I liked were the Butterfly flags. They are so colorful, bright, and cheerful.

  76. I would love to gift or receive a Monarch Butterfly T-shirt because I love to share the story of Monarchs as I have reared them for approximately the last 10 years. It’s a great way to share about their endangerment to create awareness to others. Along with the T-shirt I would love to receive or gift the Butterfly Books for Kids as I have 2 grandsons ages 4 and 7 who love to help me when we release the butterflies and are very interested in their metamorphosis and butterfly stories.

  77. The Butterfly gift idea that I would love to give or receive is the Milkweed seed packets (Day 4). It is truly an amazing experience to watch monarchs grow up and become butterflies. Without milkweed, that can’t happen. Together we can preserve Milkweed and Monarchs so that future generations can enjoy them as much as we do!
    Thanks for the amazing gift opportunity!

  78. I would love the Taylor Swift INSPIRED Butterfly Sweatshirt or Hoodie. It would keep me warm on those early spring and late fall days while I am working in my butterfly garden.

  79. I love the Butterfly light jar! Its unique and I would love to either give it or receive it!

  80. I’d love a butterfly garden flag, as all mine have seen better days. The colors have faded terribly.

  81. Milkweed seeds! The best way to help Monarchs is by planting milkweed in your garden. I think giving seed is the best gift idea. 🤗🦋🙋🏼‍♀️

  82. Being new to raising milkweed plants to encourage butterflies to the west coast of Florida, I would love to receive the set of milkweed seed packets to share with neighbors. The butterfly tee shirt would be a great promotion to start conversations with other butterfly lovers.

  83. I would love to receive the organza bags to give away seeds at Christmas! I have several packs of 40-50 seeds that I have harvested for gifting but put in little brown envelopes.. I love the 2 children’s books to give to my grandchildren! I am actually writing a butterfly story that I want to get published!!

  84. I would love to receive the seed packets as I live on a farm and have many pockets of milkweed already but not a variety that is shown. My family is very supportive of my love of Monarchs and I’d love to give the t-shirts to many of them or the garden flags to my mother who has beautiful flower gardens of her own. What amazing gifts to support Monarchs. I teach elementary special education and what amazing lessons the Monarch can bring to my students at the beginning of every school year! I would love to use the seeds to plant a variety of milkweeds along the edges of our school’s property so my students can view Monarchs in their natural environment as well as in our classroom. Thank you for the opportunity to view these products and enter this contest!

  85. So many great gift ideas. I would gift the milkweed seed packets, to my friends who are showing interest in raising monarchs. I would love to receive the seed packets and monarch t-shirt. Thank you for these great gifts.

  86. This is such a cool contest, there are just so many great ideas to choose from, it is hard to choose. I would pick the milkweed packets for me and my 8 year old son. He has high functioning autism and we’ve raised and released over 60 monarchs. Due to our last rental, we were not able to do any of that, but now that we moved, we now have a place to plant and an enclosed patio to safely harbor the cocoons. I have countless pictures of my son holding a monarch. It has taught him to appreciate nature. Thanks for the opportunity.

  87. I bought the milkweed seeds and can’t wait to plant them!! I love the night light and the children’s books. 2 of my granddaughters are crazy about butterflies!

  88. So many choices! I would love to give and receive the milkweed seeds and the butterfly flags.

  89. Personally, I would love to receive the Christmas monarch t-shirt and the milkweed seed package!
    I love my monarch t-shirts, and I’d love to try out some of the different milkweed types in my garden.

  90. Monarch butbutterfly butterfly inspired clothing with seed packets as gifts to neighbors. It would help them warm up to the idea of planting milkweed for the butterflies. Maybe even the HOA can get onboard. It’s a shame that milkweed is marginalized as a weed.

  91. I’d love the 6 pack of milkweed seeds to help us increase the number of milkweed gardens in our yard.

    Thanks for the chance to win these!

  92. Just got ordered “ten magic butterflies” for my friends 4 year old daughter. This will be a delight to her for Christmas this year. She really likes counting and butterflies!

    Last year i got her “Oh my butterfly” it was a delight!

    In the past i bought myself Peace on earth t-shirt. Gave milkweed seeds and butterfly banners. Will probably do this again this year.

    Thanks for the Christmas ideas

  93. I would LOVE the milkweed seeds. I released close to 200 monarchs for my very first year, and boy did they put a hurting on my wallet!

  94. Monarch butbutterfly butterfly inspired clothing with seed packets as gifts to neighbors would help them warm up to the idea of planting milkweed for the butterflies. Maybe even the HOA can get onboard. It’s a shame that milkweed is marginalized as a weed.

  95. I would be blessed to receive the Taylor Swift hoodie. Being a senior citizen who raises butterflies this would be won’t. Yes I’am a Swiftie fan!

  96. Thank you, for all you do to save our Beautiful butterflies!
    I live in Central Florida and can rarely find Milkweed plants for the Monarchs! I would love to have seeds!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  97. My pick is Day 4, gift of Milkweed seeds. This is a one size fits all gift and helps carry on the life of the Monarch with their favorite food! I also believe, the more food, the more butterflies!

  98. I would love to gift one of the sweatshirts to my daughter who loves to look for Monarch eggs so we can raise a few!

  99. I had a hard time choosing between the butterfly night light and the butterfly books because both are great for our next generation of butterfly lovers. But the butterfly night light is my favorite because it’s personalized and unique and would give comfort and hopefully a love of butterflies to any of the little ones.

  100. While I think the seeds would be great, I currently only have the yard space for the milkweed I currently have. Instead I would opt for the Taylor Swift inspired sweater! They are two things I love combined into one, so I think it’s perfect. Plus having a butterfly sweater will give me a little bit of spring vibes during the cold winter.

  101. I would love the “Peace on Earth long sleeved shirt and would love to give it as a gift. I have many shirts and hoodies with the monarchs on them, but I don’t have this one. It would make a fabulous gift for anyone!

  102. I’m “revamping” my milkweed section of my “mini prairie” so I would love the milkweed seeds! thank you Theresa

  103. I would love to gift the Taylor Swift sweatshirt to my daughter. She is a huge Swiftie, and the love has grown even more since we are Chiefs fans as well!

  104. Would love the milkweed seeds to add our garden. My kiddos love to see butterflies floating around…I do too!

  105. I would love to have the packets of milkweed seeds to try! Thanks 😎

  106. I would love to give/get the milk week seeds. Adding more variety to my garden. And I love the sweatshirt! ❤️🦋

  107. Native milkweed and native nectar plants would be at the top of my list of Christmas gifts to receive. Fortunately in Florida both grow all year.

  108. I love the Peace on Earth shirt. We have raised a lot of Monarchs and released them over the years. As an amateur entomologist I always love sharing my hobby and passion with others, especially kids.

  109. I would love to give the Taylor Swift butterfly Hoodie to my daughter. She has listened to Taylor for as long as I can remember. The butterflies on the front definitely match her albums.

  110. I would love to win the seed packets to share with my condominium neighbors who have garden space to grow the milkweed plants. I would love to receive the smaller garden flag to welcome friends and neighbors as an encouragement for them to grow the milkweed plants to help save our Florida butterflies.

  111. I have already ordered two of the Taylor Swift Butterfly hoodies f or my granddaughters. I would like the gift of seeds so I can help raise more butterflies. I have a coworker who has two young children and they have become interested in butterflies. My coworker knows that I have a pollinator garden and he asked me for help making a pollinator garden with his children. I can give a gift that helps future generations of pollinators.

  112. I most love the milkweed seeds. I have only one type of milkweed in my garden and have been adding native plants each year. I would appreciate the new varieties of milkweed nearly as much as the Monarchs. I love the packages the seeds come in and would put them on stakes and cover them in an outdoor clear varnish and would include them in the garden.

  113. These are all wonderful gift ideas but I would love to receive the milkweed seeds. I could plant the varieties that I don’t already have and share the rest with friends and neighbors to help the butterflies!

  114. As I scrolled, I first thought I’d like the Peace on Earth long sleeve, because it reminds me of the butterfly migration and coming together in Mexico.
    But then I got to the seed packs – THAT is the gift I would most like to receive! I didn’t even know milkweed seeds existed, outside of seed pods😉. I have only grown one type, by digging up plants from my parents yard ( no easy feat). I can’t wait to try more varieties!

  115. The gift I would most like to give and receive is: Day 5- Butterfly Garden Flags. I would like this gift because it lets the entire neighborhood know how much I love butterflies and making a safe and welcoming habitat for them.

  116. The packets of milkweed seeds share the gift of on-going life! Asclepias plants sustain many pollinators, especially our precious monarchs, and Autumn’s fruitful seeds carry that life to gardens and fields far beyond the original site. I like to give milkweed seeds to anyone who will plant them, and this assortment offers varieties suitable for every garden.

  117. I love the garden flags to let my neighbors know my yard is butterfly- friendly.

  118. I would love to receive the milkweed seeds, I started my journey with monarchs this summer and released close to 180 monarchs. They are not only very hungry caterpillars, but they’re also more like a HS football team after a Friday night game!!
    my two houses were always full of various monarch stages and Id also love to get a few more butterfly houses!

  119. I already sent off gift #1 to my daughter who is a Taylor Swift fan, as it combines her love of Taylor’s songs with my love of butterflies! She received it yesterday and loves it!

  120. I would love to gift or have the seeds. It would be great to gift those to my son to get a butterfly habitat started. It would be great for me to add to my existing gardens

  121. I would love to receive #3- Butterfly Night Lights because they are uniquely designed, colorful and can be personalized. I would love to give #6- Children’s Butterfly Books because of their cute stories and colorful illustrations. Perfect to get little ones interested in nature.

  122. I love the Milkweed seeds. I just moved from California to Ohio and all of my plants and packages of Milkweeds where destroyed. I couldn’t wait until spring to replant my beautiful plants and to grow new milkweed plants throughout my yard/garden. The seeds would be a wonderful starting point.

  123. I would love to win the Butterfly t-shirt with the Christmas design to give to a friend of mine whom I taught how to attract butterflies. She was enthralled with it and now has a big milkweed garden. She would be thrilled with the t-shirt and it would make a great Christmas gift for her. Thank you, Tony.

  124. My five year old granddaughter would love the books so that would be the gift that I would choose from the first six gifts. I would like to receive the butterfly garden flags.

  125. The gift I would give is the 4b Joyful butterfly gift card. I have purchased many seeds from Joyful butterfly and I can say that they are a wonderful company. They have so many varieties of plants and seeds, that you can raise many different types of butterflies depending on your state. Another reason I would give this gift is that the website has a map that helps you find plants and seeds based upon where you live. I love that you don’t have to guess if a plant or seed is good for your area. This is the perfect gift for a newcomer to start gardening for butterflies.

  126. I would love to give (or receive) the Butterfly Garden Flags the most. I live in a condo community, and there aren’t a lot of flowers to attract bees or butterflies. Garden flags offer lots of color where homeowners aren’t allowed to plant. My across-the-street neighbor is in her 80s, an avid gardener, and I know she would love them.

  127. I would most likely gift the multipacks of milkweed seeds. These seeds are a way to give a beautiful gift to the recipient, help monarchs, and keep materials out of landfills. It’s a gift that keeps on giving to so many!

    1. I would love to wear the Taylor Swift inspired butterfly sweatshirt to school. I teach a class of Swifties who are also butterfly enthusiasts!

  128. I would most like to get and give the butterfly books for kids. To be successful at getting the Monarchs off of the endangered list we will need the next generation on board to help. I like getting my grandkids hooked on the miracles in nature at a young age. It is something they can appreciate and enjoy their whole lives.

  129. I would most like to receive the t shirts. I love to wear them out. It starts conversations. I do also love they made a companion book to the very impatient caterpillar, which is my favorite kids book to teach about butterflies. I’ll have to check that one out!

    1. The Butterfly Flag would be my pick. It would look beautiful next to my stained glass Monarch Butterfly that I have in one of my butterfly gardens.

  130. Since I am already gifting several gardener friends Mexican Sunflower seeds I would also gift them the Milkweed packets. Actually I would then ask someone to get them for me as well. My garden needs more than just common milkweed.

  131. I am grammy to 8 year old Mallie who raised painted ladies 4 years ago which got me interested in the plight of the monarch. She has been the biggest helper for the past 3 years, we now have a waystation now, have collected eggs, tagged and released butters. Walked country roads collecting milkweed to feed more cats than expected.
    I would love to gift her aSWIFTY HOODED SWEATSHIRT. She is a super Swifty fan, blessed with a concert and the movie concert. The sweatshirt would be her 2 favorite things …in one.
    Thank you

  132. I would most like to get or give the milkweed seeds (Day 4). I would love to give these to my friends to encourage them to help the Monarchs. I love the seed gift bags, too. So cute! What a great gift to help the Monarchs.

  133. As a grandmother of 7, ages 3 – 12, I always like to wear nature inspired clothing when I’m with them. They love it when I wear a new one! The hoodie, or jumper as my friends across the pond call them, will be a wonderful surprise for them!
