Beatrix Potter Gift Ideas


Beatrix Potter was a great supporter of the National Trust.    When she died in 1943, she left 15 farms and over 4,000 acres of land to the National Trust.  And Hill Top Farm was kept exactly as it had been when she lived in it - as she wanted.  Thousands of people visit every year. 

There are some great gift ideas for fans of Beatrix Potter.   I remember reading the books as a small child with my mother and she still smiles as she recalls how I used to chuckle throughout each book.
