It's Holiday Tweet Time: New Gardener's Supply Songbird Tweets™ Are Holiday Gifts for the Birds

BURLINGTON, VT--(Marketwired - Nov 6, 2013) - For your own backyard or for holiday gift giving, Gardener's Supply's "Songbird Tweets™" are edible outdoor birdseed ornaments combining clever designs and packaging that are handmade in the U.S. The exclusive 'Tweets' contain what's best for the birds: a variety of nutritious seeds, non-toxic bonding substances and food-grade dyes.

The exclusive collection of whimsical birdseed ornaments is a gift made in the U.S. especially for Gardener's Supply, featuring a variety of shapes, each in its own matching packaging that's perfect for gift giving. Ready-to-hang Songbird Tweets™ include:

  • Birdseed Pears. Nine lifelike pears in a gourmet-style gift box.
  • Birdseed Strawberries. Ten plump red strawberries in a quart wood basket.
  • Birdseed Candy CanesSix classic candy canes in a nostalgic candy box.
  • Birdseed Eggs. A dozen eggs boxed in an egg carton.

Prices range from $19.95 to $24.95.

A perfect gift for bird lovers of any age, Songbird Tweets™ are especially appreciated by those that might have trouble refilling birdfeeders. Simply hang the Tweets near a window so everyone can watch the birds from indoors. They also provide an ideal activity for adults and children to enjoy together.

"Songbird Tweets™ let gift-givers present not only a surprising and attractive package, but an easy way to engage with nature," said Maree Gaetani, gardening relations and a Gardener's employee-owner. "They also help brighten up your backyard during fall and winter."

Songbird Tweets™ are made in the U.S. by a small group of craftspeople, with seeds specially selected to attract different types of birds. Depending upon the Tweet's shape, it can take anywhere from six to nine steps to create a solid-seed ornament that's ready for outdoor hanging, and for birds to enjoy. From hand-tying jute hanging loops, to hand-forming and pressing the shapes, to hand-painting with food dyes, each Tweet goes through multiple quality checks before being dried and packaged.
