Urban Outfitters has a wide selection of owl gifts available on their site, and I noticed a certain colored trend among the items for sale this year. From glitter ornaments, banksLED pens, leather pouches, a shower caddy and tub grips, all the way to an outlandish full body costume; this is one instance where a blue Christmas isn’t necessarily a bad thing!

Gloria

Sufjan Stevens is at it again with another 5 disc Christmas album for us to lush over. Last year I posted about his first venture into holiday music, which over the years has become a Christmas staple of mine.  This November he released Silver & Gold, a continuation of his previous 5 disc effort which picks up with the owl adorned volume titled ‘Gloria’. Like the previous release, this new set is packed to the brim with goodies like stickers, temporary tattoos, a paper ornament, photos, posters, lyrics & chords, and even graphic designs by the man himself. I have linked to one of my favorite tracks off the new set, ‘Carol of St. Benjamin The Bearded One’ below.

I hope you enjoy!

OwlCalendarMarch

Owl Moon Raptor Center is releasing another calendar for the new year in which 100% of the proceeds go to benefit the rescued birds located at their state and federally licensed wildlife rehabilitation center in Maryland. The images in last year’s offering were absolutely amazing, and this year is proving to be no exception. This opportunity to obtain a great wall calendar for yourself all while supporting owl rehabilitation is only going to be available for as long as supplies last, so please act while you can. These things make perfect gifts that you can feel good about!

For more information on how to obtain your calendar and make a donation, click the link below.

BENEATH MY HEART

I was browsing r/owls when I stumbled upon this fun little owl product that was too unique not to share. ‘Hooty the heatable owl’ is a microwavable plush owl filled with millet seeds and lavender to provide comfort and relief for life’s various aches & pains. I imagine these wide-eyed balls of warmth would be awfully handy in the upcoming winter months as well! Available in a variety of designs, these heat packed plushies are available from UK gadget retailer Gizoo for only £9.95. Details at the link below.

I was browsing Target this weekend when I spotted a few new Christmas owl products up for grabs this year. There is an adorable trio of glass ornaments featuring owls with glasses, shatterproof tree toppers, nested owl dolls, and even some festive green & red iron votive holders. Delight!
