Christmas can be a time of overspending and excess, a time of stress and endless shopping. If you’re choosing to slow things down and be a little more conscious when doing your Christmas shopping this year, then this post might offer a little inspiration. Here are a few sustainable gift ideas under £35…
Sustainable Gift Ideas
This post contains ethical and sustainable gift ideas. Gifts that have been created using natural materials in a way that is ethical and cruelty-free. Given the Climate Crisis we are all facing, slowing down our spending and opting instead for more Planet-Friendly, considered gifts, can only be a step in the right direction.
The Hygge Box from Alice & Peg is the perfect gift to give your loved one a moment of wellbeing and self-care. The Hygge Box contains, Rooftop Garden Candle (Bergamot, Basil, Thyme, Lavender & Ylang Ylang). Handmade by Sunday of London. The Midnight Somewhere Candle (Lavender, Rose, Lemon, Lime & Orange Peel) made for peace and tranquility. A Black Candle Wick Trimmer, which is an essential and elegant tool for trimming your candle wicks to the perfect length to keep your candle burning cleanly. As well as the Single Origin Dominican Salt Chocolate Bar , handmade by Bare Bones Chocolate. A lovely Warming Tea Tasting Selection by Joe’s Tea Co. This box is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Alice & Peg also proudly donate £1 from every gift box sold to YoungMinds, one of the UK’s leading charities fighting for children and young people’s mental health.
A personal zero-waste, non-toxic favourite of mine is the Chateau du Savon fine French soaps. As a company they are proud to only sell products that are 100% zero waste and pride themselves on having a deep commitment to the environment. You can buy beautiful fragrant gift sets that have a selection of soaps inside, all packaged in 100% recyclable material.
The Black Moon candle has been created with natural woodland tones to inspire positivity, calmness and relaxation. The earthy blend of sandalwood encourages inner peace. Run with wolves candles are made from the finest natural, environmentally friendly soy wax, which burns cleaner and longer. Hand poured in small batches in Manchester.
