Christmas gift guide 2015

This year there is such a wonderful variety of gifts available from natural, organic and ethical brands, we really are spoilt for choice. Here are some of my favourite ideas for all the family:

There are some lovely offerings from Green People with a wildlife theme, they also include a donation to the Woodland trust. Starting at £15.95 there is a facial collection, hand care collection, Men’s collection and a bodycare collection. I also noticed there were some bargains to be had in the gift section including some children’s sets and a great make up set including all three of the Green People lip pencils which I just love.

Another favourite brand of mine Pai Skincare has some lovely introductory sets, the Limited edition discovery collections £20 come in Instant calm for sensitive skin and Perfect balance for acne prone skin. They come in a beautifully illustrated box and include travel sizes of Pai’s three step routine. I love that they also come in a useful reusable bag, perfect for travelling with and a muslin cloth. If you are a fan of the Pai Rosehip oil there is also a beautiful limited edition not be missed.

For a truly natural brand that all the family will love, look no further than Weleda’s gift sets. I really love the Weleda Heroe’s collection £16.50, with five best sellers including the much loved Skin Food, this is a great introduction to what they have to offer. There is something for everyone, whether you are after full sizes, trial sizes or stocking fillers in fact a few of the set’s have gone on my wish list!

For some great value sets take a look at AA Skincare, pictured above is the Helping hands set priced at £13.50 it would make a perfect Teacher present or for a relative that is hard to buy for. All the gift sets come boxed and again there is great choice. Look out tomorrow because I might just have one of the sets to giveaway!

The very lovely Chuckling Goat have a selection of gorgeous Kefir infused natural skincare products. Especially good for problematic skin, the bath melts come in at a very reasonable £6.95 and would make a gorgeous and very interesting stocking stuffer.

From long standing organic heroes Dr Bronner we have some perfect stocking filler ideas including their multi-purpose balms, twist up lip balms and the very beautiful Orange and lavender body lotion, which smells and feels simply amazing! With Dr Bronners you get authentic natural and organic ingredients at very reasonable prices.

Bar soaps make a great sticking filler idea and I love these quirky soaps from Mamma Oceania which come in lot’s of different scents. Also worth looking at is Nathalie Bond Organics who have a stunning range of handmade products and some beautiful gift sets. The lip balms and soaps would be perfect gifts but personally I am hoping Santa will bring me one of their body scrubs!

Last but not least I have been particularly enjoying Fisika an interesting artisan range made in Crete. The Lavender face cream is saving my parched winter skin and I love the variety of well priced and beautifully packaged gift sets they have, take a look at the pretty reusable gift bags, so lovely!
