We’ve always had a thing for bees at Thunder Egg, the real things and bee themed gifts! It makes sense, what with our city being the home of the Manchester bee. Bees have gone mainstream in recent years. People have learnt not only how crucial bees are but also the threats bees increasingly face. So how best to pay homage to our yellow and black stripy pals? With bee clothes and bee themed gifts!
When we say ‘Bee clothes’ you may not immediately think of basics, but we have a fab range of bee tees! They are super-easy to incorporate into your wardrobe. Available in pastel peach, cute lilac and mint green, these pastel bee tees are stretchy and super-soft. They each feature one embroidered fuzzy bee, so are a cool subtle nod to bees without going bee mad.
If those embroidered bee babes have caught your eye then good news! There’s more embroidered bee clothes in the Daphnea range. You know we love a touch of glam at Thunder Egg. It was very exciting to get these shirts with gold embroidered bees! Available in black, orange and green, these 100% cotton shirts may seem quite minimalist compared to some of our Bee clothes. Don’t be fooled, when the light hits that gold thread- those little Bee babes really shine! (Psst – all these Daphnea bee clothes are currently in our mega Thunder Egg Winter sale so you can grab yourself a bee bargain!)
This wouldn’t be a Thunder Egg blog without some dungaree love! Fortunately our bee clothes collection also includes our favourite dungarees! Yes, if you prefer your bee clothes with a less subtle, more all over print then it doesn’t get better than the yellow Run & Fly bee dungarees. These unisex dungarees are also available in corduroy so perfect for repping bees in the Winter months while they’re actually hibernating! If you love this fabric, we also currently have the gold twill bee pinafore and mustard corduroy bee pinafore in the all over bee print too!
Just before we move on to bee themed gifts here’s our top picks of tops from our bee clothes collection! Because it’s Winter, the Run & Fly gold bee cardigan is currently top of our list. It’s super soft and those knitted bees are just too cute for words. The super soft 98% cotton unisex bumblebee tee in stone and in mustard are a solid favourite here! And who could forget the 100% cotton short sleeved bee shirt too?
Two of our favourite things are bees and shiny things. We HAD to get some super cute bee themed gifts that combine the two! The Erstwilder bumblebee burrower brooch and Babette bee brooch are made from a gorgeous glitter resin and are presented in a handy storage box. The Erstwilder accessories always fly off the shelves so you’ll have to be quick if you want a bee brooch! And if you want to add some sparkle to your bee homeware, we have these gorgeous gold queen bee salt and pepper shakers. A Thunder Egg favourite is also by Sass & Belle: it’s this super cute gold bee plant hanger.
If you’re buying for someone who is always on the go, these Bee-themed gifts are the perfect way to keep up! We have the Sass & Belle busy bees bamboo travel cup if you like your brew on the move. We also have the clear water bottle with cute bee print and insulated busy bees lunchbag. Teamed with a busy bees notebook you’ll be ready for anything!
The point we’re trying to make is all over this Blue Q shopper: Bees are cool! And Blue Q is committed to making the planet more sustainable and bee friendly because these shoppers are made from 95% post consumer materials!
