Christmas. I love it, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t stress me out. It always jumps out of nowhere. Every. Single. Year. After Christmas, I vouch that next year I’ll be prepared, I’ll buy all my presents waaay in advance and I won’t give useless presents just because I have to give something (sorry about the abundance of cufflinks over the years, Dad).
However, this year I’ve decided to be prepared. To help us all out a bit, we’ve put together the best gift guide (ever). Demonstrating that gift-buying doesn’t have to be scary, tbh it’s actually pretty fun when you have a bit of inspo. From stocking fillers to all-out gifts, you’ll find something in there for every person and every taste. We’re giving you a little teaser with a few gifts from the guide in this article, if you want the full thing (discount codes included!), sign up here and we’ll send it right to your inbox.
For Those Who Have It All
We all have that one person. You go to their house for a coffee and they have a world-class coffee machine with matching mugs, coasters, a milk-pan, a milk-frother AND fairtrade organic coffee imported all the way from Kenya. Is there really anything they don’t own? Well, hopefully, this solar lamp jar! Produced fairly in South Africa, this jar absorbs energy from the sun during the day and then glows throughout the night! Just leave it by a window and you’ll have a solar-powered enviro-friendly night light to make your room extra cosy.
Lumi Accessories hand-make their products using natural materials such as vegetable-tanned leather. These accessories are the prettiest sustainable gifts around and perfect for any fashionista. Our top pick is the Large Case Meeting Pocket in Natural. A simple, yet beautiful design with an ecological flair. This one is definitely essential for the wardrobe.
For Natural Folk:

I definitely know a few beauty-product addicted friends and family that are nail polish hoarders. So this one’s bound to be a hit and all of Kia Charlotte’s polishes are beautiful, vegan, cruelty-free and 14-free (read more about what this means here).
