Hand Care - essential for hard-working hands

Hand care for hands which nurture need nurturing & nourishing themselves!
There's nothing like an afternoon or morning spent working in the garden or in the house or anywhere, really.  It is really fulfilling, spiritually and physically, and of course you can enjoy the sights of your labours immediately - the result is all your hard work.

For many of us, though, we also feel a need to give our hands a little or a lot of tender loving care, as they can feel dry, not to mention be incredibly grubby.  So here's a selection of goodies for gardeners to help them care for their hands as well as their garden!  Or they can enjoy a long soak in the bath

If you're looking for hand care gifts for someone who is an animal lover and into animal welfare, take a look at the Love Nature Toiletries range.  It includes goodies such as hand cream, hand wash, soap, bath foam, body butter, and shower gel.  They also have the gift pictured left - the Love nature wildflowers bathroom gift set for £16.99. 

The other good thing about buying from the RSPB online shop is that you know you're helping wildlife with your purchase, which puts extra meaning into your gift!  Your loved one can help wildlife from their bathroom or cloakroom.  Visit the RSPB Online Shop here
