Bird Feeder & People Feeder | Unique Gift

For a birthday gift, I received a beautiful mosiac glass bird feeder. It was too pretty to let the birds poop on it so I made a decision to turn it into something else – a people feeder!

bird-feeder-people-feeder-thoughtful-gift-ideaWe love having celebrations at our house for birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, Christmas, and all the holidays in between. Food and games are the center of our family celebrations.

On the kitchen table, I placed my decorative bird feeder filled with peanut and plain M&Ms. My family and friends loved the idea of nibbling from the “people feeder.”

Because the bird feeder aka people feeder was such a hit, I decided to give something similar as a gift.

I purchased a beautiful bird feeder and a giant bag of M&Ms and called my gift “Birds of a Feather Flock Together” since it’s perfect to use for get-togethers with family and friends.

It’s also a thoughtful twist for a unique housewarming gift. It can be used immediately for a delicious snack and a fun conversation piece!


The recipient if they choose can actually use their gift as it was intended – a bird feeder – but so far my friends have chosen to keep it as a people feeder.

A variety of bird feeders are available in gift stores and on Amazon. I’ve also seen unusual vintage glassware bird feeders for purchase or DIY.

Important Tip: When purchasing a bird feeder make sure the opening and tray are large enough for the M&Ms.

Giving a bird feeder with M&Ms to create a “people feeder” is a gift your friends and family won’t forget any time soon!

Birds of a feather flock together – people with similar likes, behavior, tastes and interests will be found together.  – Proverb
