A gift for someone who loves stamps and nature...

Take a look at the stamp collections from Forestry Commission

If you’re looking for a bit of a different gift for a stamp collector who also loves nature, you could take a look at Forestry England.  They have a celebratory stamp collection which you can buy at Royal Mail as part of the Forestry England’s centenary celebrations.   There is a presentation pack, which tells the story of the  evolution of forests through the ages. 

Three forests in England have been brought to life – Gloucestershire’s Westonbirt Arboretum, Nottinghamshire’s Sherwood Forest, and Northumberland’s Kielder Forest. In addition, the collection features Scotland’s Glen Affric, Coed y Brenin in Wales, and Northern Ireland’s Glenariff Forest.

There are a number of formats available from the Royal Mail website:

  • Set of 6 stamps 
  • Presentation pack
  • Framed set of 6 stamps
  • First day cover stamps
  • Stamp souvenir
  • First day envelope
  • Set of 6 postcards
