It’s that time of year again we start shopping for Christmas gifts and I have been rounding up a selection of my favourites. This is the first of three gift guides I have created for this year, with a selection of green beauty gifts for all budgets I have made Christmas shopping for loved ones (or yourself!) a breeze.
Starting off with Weleda who have really excelled themselves with this years gift selection. There is something for every taste and budget. I particularly love the draw string wash bags, the one featured above is the Men’s set which includes a shower gel, shave cream and moisturiser. The gift boxes this year are really great, I love the Pomegranate body care range so this Trio Ribbon box with a fragrance, body wash and body lotion is particularly lovely and fantastic value. There is also a fabulous Limited edition Skinfood tin and even some Skinfood Wellies which I have and adore. Weleda has one of the best selection of affordable gifts too, so if you are looking for secret Santa or Teacher gifts this is a great range to shop! You can also find a small of selection of the gifts buy one get one half price here.
Another brand who also has a fantastic gift selection is Pai Skincare. I am always excited to see the gift sets they launch and this year they have partnered with artist Niina Pechkovskya who created some gorgeous illustrations for the boxes. The Everyday Hero collection contains three of Pai’s bestsellers and my personal favourites, the Camellia and Rose cleanser, the Chamomile and Rosehip moisturiser and the now cult Rosehip oil as well as a duo effect sensitive skin cloth. All of Pai’s skincare is perfect for sensitive skin so this is a great brand choose. As well as the gift sets they have just launched their new Head to Toe Buriti balm which is gorgeous vegan balm which is lightly scented with vanilla and would make a great gift.
British brand Beefayre has a lovely selection of gift boxes containing candles and natural skincare. The brands products are beautifully illustrated with bees and flowers. Their products are well worth a look and they also have homeware such as mugs and tea towels. The brand donates a portion of their profits to bee conservation.
If you are looking for the perfect gift for anyone who is active or simply needs to unwind, the Mio Liquid Yoga range is simply gorgeous. It has a really fresh and invigorating scent packed full of essential oils such as Chamomile, spearmint, cypress and lavender. There are three products in the range, the Liquid Yoga bath soak, the Liquid Yoga space spray and a Liquid Yoga candle and they would all make fabulous gifts together as a set or separately. The Liquid Yoga space spray has a permanent place on my desk because it really helps me to de-stress and focus, a must have for me. Mio are currently celebrating their birthday with a whopping 25% off too!
This year Green People are supporting Butterfly conservation with their fabulous gift sets. They come with ribbons and are pretty enough to hang directly from the tree. I really like the fact that there are larger gift sets or stocking fillers available and this little hand cream would make a fantastic Teacher gift too. Green People never disappoint me with their formulas and they have something for everyone, Mr Green is a fan of the Men’s range (You can use the code ANA15 for 15% off!).
One of my favourite aromatherapy brands Tisserand has some fabulous affordable small gifts or stocking fillers. The newly launched bath and body collections include bath soaks, body washes and hand creams. The scents are really beautiful (I will have full reviews soon) and the ingredients are very good. If you are looking for a boxed gift the Peaceful night set is really sweet and contains an aromatherapy roll on, bath oil and body oil in my favourite Sweet dreams scent. Lavender, sandalwood and Jasmine make this a real relaxing treat.
Hope you enjoyed the first instalment of my gift guide, I have part two and stocking fillers on the way!
