The bird window feeder gift idea is great for a range of people on your gift list for any occasion: teachers, colleagues, neighbors (unless they have outdoor cats), friends, family, yourself — anyone. It’s also economical and will cost around $30.

Wild Bird Window Feeder

For the window feeder, I recommend Nature’s Hangout Window Bird Feeder. Why? Because it is what I use. This window bird feeder is durable, has strong suction cups, it’s weather proof, lightweight, it has drainage holes in the bottom to keep moisture to a minimum and most importantly, it’s easy to clean! It also comes with extra suction cups.

The GrayBunny Clear Window Bird Feeder is a similar product that is cheaper than the window feeder that I recommended (I have not used it), but it looks so similar, so why not try it?

Alternatively, here is a link to many different types of window feeders that you can choose from. Now to the ingredients.


Next, you’ll want to stuff the window feeder with some lovely ingredients. Here are some ideas:

  • Peanuts, unflavored, unsalted, with or without a shell.
  • Sunflower seeds, unflavored, unsalted, with or without a shell.
