It’s that time of year again when we all start to think about which Christmas jumper to wear, what drink to have with our Christmas dinner and what to buy for Grandma who has absolutely everything. I loving putting the annual gift guides together, they are really fun to do and I hope you find some ideas for things to buy for others or to buy for yourself. My favourite part of these gift guides is showcasing natural and ethical brands, there is an amazing amount of choice and it means you can choose something that not everyone will have.
Stocking fillers and small gifts
Walden Perfumes – Walden perfumes have a gorgeous selection of natural and cruelty free scents. Not only are the full sizes amazing, but they also offer sample sets and purse sprays that would be perfect for adding to a stocking this Christmas. In the photograph I have featured the Two Eternities purse spray, with Rose, Jasmine and Iris.
Inika trial pack – This little trial pack from Inika is a lovely way to introduce someone to natural and mineral make up. Inika is a really high quality brand, the whole range is vegan and cruelty free. This little sample set contains two different shades of mineral powder foundation, a sample of the liquid foundation and a sample of the Inika primer, everything you need to get started.
Alchemy oils bauble – This sweet little bauble contains a mini sized Alchemy oils Hair remedy of your choice. This is a great gift for someone wanting to grow their hair, who swims a lot of simply as a stocking filler for someone who loves natural products.
Weleda lip balms – I adore these vegan tinted lip balms, I think they would make an amazing gift for someone just starting out with make up and you can purchase them separately or as a cute little boxed trio.
Handmaids handbag mirror – This little portable mirror from the brand Handmaids is so gorgeous and unique. I love the little fabric pouch and the mirror itself is just perfect for popping in your hand bag. You could even get this one engraved to make it extra special.
Ooh Oils of Heaven gift set – Ooh Oils of Heaven have a really nice little selection of full and travel sized oils from around the world. There is a very sweet little boxed set, featuring five of their key oils which I think any beauty lover would enjoy. There are so many ways to use these oils and this is such a nice way to explore them.
Beatitude Christmas crackers – These gorgeous little crackers from aromatherapy brand Beatitude each feature one of their award winning bath oil fragrances, in a lovely travel size, perfect for a pampering treat Christmas evening. A really sweet addition to any stocking.
