Win A Special Bee Inspired Gift This World Honey Bee Day

This World Honey Bee Day - we’re giving away a mega prize. And we’re buzzing to tell you about it!

While not as notable as Christmas, Valentine’s or Mother’s Day, we take World Honey Bee Day very seriously. So seriously that we’re giving away perhaps the best prize, we’ve ever offered!

We have teamed up with Abeego, the reusable beeswax food wrap company, to create a gift basket fit for a queen (bee). Before we tell you exactly what’s inside, here’s why we’re running this sweet, sweet contest!

World Honey Bee Day

We love that back in 2009 a group of beekeepers successfully launched the official World Honey Bee Day. The fact that a whole day is dedicated to our little friends, helps build awareness around just how important they are to this planet.  

Everyday, all of the hard work bees put into collecting nectar and pollinating plants not only results in delicious honey, but also makes sure crops grow to be as healthy as can be. If one day bees were wiped off the face of the earth, we’d be in a pretty sticky situation! Thankfully, honey bees are around to give us the gift of food. To celebrate that, we want to gift one of you, a special bee-themed treat basket.

What’s In The Box (Basket)

Where to begin! Let’s start with the Three Foragers Bee Co. treats you’ll find in our honey gift selection:

- A jar of Three Foragers Raw Creamed Honey
- A wooden honey dipper
- A packet of our BRAND NEW honey caramels. Very few people have been lucky enough to try these yet, so this is one mighty honey gift

On top of all of that, Abeego have added a box of their variety set of breathable beeswax food wrap that you can use to keep all of your food fresh. Their ingenious food wrap eliminates the need for plastic wrap, or boxes and instead provides a sustainable, reusable way to keep an array of foods fresher for longer. And again, this great product is all thanks to those clever bees and the versatile beeswax they create.

To round off this selection of World Honey Bee treats, not one, but two artists have sent us their stunning pieces to share with you. Laura Inksetter, has included her gorgeous honey bee artwork print to share with one of you lucky people and fibre artist, Jessica Steponaitis has added her lovely handmade bee design wool coasters.
