This week I’m going to be kicking off my annual Christmas gift guides! If you’re looking for inspiration for friends or family or simply want your loved ones to get you something “green” this year, take a look at my guides & send them to your loved ones so you get something truly natural this year! I’ve got a couple of group posts and some brand focus ones too, so keep an eye out all this week.
If you’re looking for natural products from a well-known brand, head to Weleda. This natural brand has been established for many, many years and their cult product, Skin Food is very popular, loved by the likes of Adele and Victoria Beckham. Their gift ranges are very affordable, ranging from travel-size gift tubes to boxes full of their best sellers. The Heroes Gift Box features Skin Food, Almond Hand Cream, Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion and a Citrus Body Wash. For Secret Santa’s or stocking fillers, pick one of their gift tubes from the Almond Body Wash for sensitive skin to an uplifting Pomegranate Body Wash.
If you’re looking for gifts for someone who loves their luxury products, take a look at Lola’s Apothecary. From sensuous bath oils to fragrant candles, this brand oozes natural luxury. Their Delicate Romance Inner Light Ritual Gift Set is the perfect present for those who love to relax. The set includes a Delicate Romance Bath & Shower Oil with matching scented Candle, a Rainbow & Whirlwinds Tea blend to enjoy with some delicious raw Devon honey. Everything you could ever need for a relaxing night in.
Green People have partnered with the Butterfly Conservation this year on their new limited edition gift sets. A donation from each set sold will be given to the charity, which aims to protect British butterflies and moths. Their Joyful Gift Set includes a body wash and lotion in a refreshing and uplifting blend of Tangerine & Cypress which would make the perfect present for starting the new year in a positive way. If you’re looking for a gift for a man in your life or you simply love spicier scents, the Energise Men’s Gift Set is perfect. It incudes two body washes; Mint & Eucalyptus and Orange & Clove – a personal favourite of mine. Their Indulge Night Cream would be the perfect stocking filler and you can also hang it up as a little treat on your Christmas tree!
Sweet Cecily’s is a family-run business who make handmade skincare products ranging from delicious flavour lip balms to body butters, scrubs and face masks. Their Christmas Party Survival Kit has everything you need to get through all the parties and celebrations that the festive season brings. Included in the re-sealable kraft bag is a Chocolate Orange lip balm to protect your lips against the elements, Mulled Wine Spices tea bag for making your own mulled wine, Red Clay face mask to get party-ready glowing skin, Aloe Vera Gel to freshen and refresh and a Peppermint tea bag to soothe your tummy the morning after! You can also personalise the bag with the recipients name!
A brand straight out of the Cotswolds countryside, 100 Acres make a range of natural body, bath & hair products as well as deliciously scented candles. Their Relax Bath & Body Oil is made using 100% natural essential oils with a base of nourishing sweet almond oil, combined with lavender and jasmine oils. The perfect match for this oil is their Signature 3 Wick Candle which would be perfect to light whilst enjoying a bath in the Winter. It’s scented with their signature blend of lemon myrtle, lavender & rose geranium and it smells incredible.
The newest product launch from one of my favourite green brands, Bodhi & Birch, is a range of divine body oils that come in three different scents; Sicilian Rose, Nordic White and Chinois Blue. All made with beautiful natural ingredients, these body oils would be the perfect present for any luxe-skincare lovers this Christmas. They’re available in full size as well as the Body Oils Mini Collection boxed for just £20.
Isla Apothecary are a London based brand who launched about a year ago. Their copper labels make this brand stand out from the green beauty crowd and the simple yet beautiful creations are perfect for giving this Christmas. Their Blood Orange & Vanilla Scrub has the most incredible scent and will give you super soft, glowing skin when paired with the Neroli Body Oil which smells heavenly too. Both will be available as a gift set which will include a sample of the SS 2017 release Jasmine Sunset Radiance Body Oil for £35.00. (coming soon).
Mallow & White stock a small yet mighty range of products including face masks, cleansing oils, facial oils and our collaboration, Blossom Balm. Founder of Mallow & White, Joanna creates her products with just six ingredients or less, proving that natural skincare doesn’t have to be complicated to get great results. The Soothe Face Mask would be the perfect gift for those who have sensitive skin and you can mix & match it with all sorts – water, honey, apple cider vinegar…whatever your skin loves! Mallow + White will also have gift sets available for the festive season too!
