The Christmas season is upon us! But getting the right gift isn’t always easy. Especially if you’re trying to pick some ethical options while you’re at it. There were some great gifts showcased in the latest YouTube video. Here are a few more ideas to help pick the perfect present:
For the Hygge Lover:
A great pair of pyjamas always goes down a treat at Christmas, there is nothing like the feeling of fresh, clean, new PJ’s especially after a big roast dinner. These starry pyjama bottoms would make a great addition to any girls wardrobe but especially at Christmas when all you want to do is spend boxing day lounging about. It’s made from 100% organic Fairtrade cotton too, so you definitely can’t go wrong.
For the Book Worm:
Lucy Siegle’s latest book Turning the Tide on Plastic would make a great present for any book lover, especially one wanting to learn how they can help make a positive impact on the earth. Go one step further and choose to buy from a local book shop and help to support small businesses over Christmas.
For the Green One:
With the food industry being one of the main culprits of single use plastic, one of the best ways to make a difference is to grow your own fruit, veg and herbs. A gardening starters kit would make a great gift for any green fingered friends itching to start their own garden. You could also throw in some wild flower seeds to be planted for summer, creating a great space for bees and wildlife.
For the Pamper King and Queen:
Winter is definitely a great time to stay indoors and indulge in a little pampering. Lush has a great range of fun products like the Oatfix face mask, great for cold weather, or the Whoosh shower jelly bound to get you going in the morning.
For the Stylish Gal:
Nothing says Christmas like a red dress and if you’re on the lookout to treat the fashionista in your life, you cant go wrong with this cute pinafore dress from Thought. Not only is the colour super festive, but it is also made from 100% sustainably sourced organic cotton.
For the Stylish Guy:
You cant have Christmas without a good jumper and this year Know the Origin have got a great range of 100% organic Fairtrade sweatshirts in all colours. Opt for the dark red to get that real Christmassy feel.
For the One You’ve Got No Idea About:
We all have that one friend or relative we just aren’t sure what to get them. Well, you can’t go wrong with a Chilly’s water bottle. They come in loads of colours and patterns to suit everyone and would make a great present for anyone.
For the Stocking Fillers:
If you’re in charge of the stocking this year, fear not we have you sorted with these great stocking fillers. A bamboo toothbrush will always be useful and helps get rid of unsustainable plastic ones. These Seed and Bean Fairtrade chocolate bars are a delicious addition to any stocking (they may not last long!). You can’t go wrong with some good old lush bath products especially this super cute bubbly Puddy Holly. And last but not least, it wouldn’t be a proper Christmas without someone getting socks! Thought have a great range of bamboo options for men and women.
So there you have it. This Christmas, forget about frantically running around the high street and instead give someone a gift that will make a difference. If you want the chance to win some of the items on this list, check out the latest YouTube video and follow the instructions at the end!
