Though presents are certainly not the most important part of Christmas, they do play a role in many of today’s celebrations! Indeed, one of the most gratifying moments can be watching the faces of friends and family light up opening something you have put a lot of thought into.
With so many gift-options available, choosing something that feels right can sometimes be overwhelming, especially when you’re also looking for products that have been ethically made or responsibly sourced. So, this year we’ve done the hard work for you and put together a collection of gifts that we're sure will put a smile on the face of your loved one!
Get Them Ready for Mistletoe Magic with Weleda
Weleda is one of the brands that gets our office excited. Their products are cruelty-free and fairly-traded, plus they feel and smell incredible!
Our pick this year is the Lip Balm Trio (£16.95), perfect for a Secret Santa gift, or for family members young and old. The colours in the trio suit many styles and complexions, plus its beauty with a conscience- what more could you need from a lip balm?!?
Keep Them Cosy and Caffeinated with a Leak-Free Reusable Travel Cup
As the days get colder, we’re drinking more hot drinks to keep us warm. Whatever your loved ones hot-tipple of choice, we’re sure they would be delighted to drink it from this eye-catching reusable cup!
Unlike many others, the Ecoffee Cup range is made from bamboo fibre! Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and therefore considered a number one renewable resource. It also means these cups are BPA and phthalate free!
Finally, it's lightweight, so won’t weigh them down at this busy time of year and there are tons of colour options- we’re big fans of this William Morris print (£11.95).
Pamper and Protect them with the incognito® Essentials
Well, we couldn’t put a gift guide together without including our own range!
We’ve created a number of festive combo packs, with each one designed with a different kind of traveler in mind… For example, our Luxury-Combo (£66) contains products to pamper, like our moisturiser which contains organic avocado and chamomile. Whereas the Compact-Combo (£19.99) is all about the small but mighty essentials like our roll-on and room refresher for an aspiring world backpacker!
All our natural formulas are kind to the skin, kind to the environment and suitable for vegans, so all bases are covered and you get extra friend points!
Soak Away Their Aches and Pains with Magical Magnesium
This one is a real crowd pleaser, but particularly fitting if you’re buying for someone who enjoys being active and is thus prone to some aches and pains!
Magnesium is a bit of a wonder ingredient thanks to its unrivaled ability to melt away muscle tension and relieve stress! We recommend pairing the inflatable foot bath with these magnesium flakes. The inflatable foot-bath is easily transportable too, so perfect for taking on trips to distant relatives, where a bit of stress relief could really come in handy!
Feed their food cravings with Rubies in the Rubble
Rubies in the Rubble produce a range of delicious chutneys with a twist… they rescue surplus fruit and vegetables that would have gone to waste, and instead transform them into chutneys, ketchup, and mayonnaise! They do a relish gift-set which is a trio of the three best-selling relishes – pink onion and chilli, spicy tomato, and London piccalilli (£12.00).
For the ethically-minded foodie, this is a great choice… you may even be able to persuade them to open it over Christmas so you can all get a taste!
