Welcome to my first Christmas Gift Guide! I’ve had so much fun putting this together and I really hope you’ll find it useful. I’ve curated a collection of some amazing products, that I think would be perfect for the conscious beauty lover in your life and have shared them all below.
First up we have Weleda. They have played a huge part in my green beauty journey this year, so I had to feature them. They have released a seven piece collection of gift sets this year, all featuring gorgeous artwork by decorative glass designer Emma Britton. The gift sets are so pretty and they would look lovely under the tree. The one I was very kindly sent is the Gardener’s Favourites * which features Arnica Muscle Soak, Everon Lip Balm, Foot Balm, Skin Food, Lavender Body Oil & Lavender Body Wash. There are different sets for everybody and all at a range of prices – the cheapest is only £5.50! Weleda products are some of my favourites and with the Emma Britton packaging they make such beautiful gifts.
Bodhi & Birch are an amazing, luxurious, natural skincare brand that draw inspiration from the healing power of nature and traditional botanical remedies. Bodhi & Birch are one of the most luxurious skincare brands I’ve tried and their Neroli Luce Revitalising Face Oil has cult status amongst natural beauty bloggers. It’s one of my all time favourite products and you really couldn’t go wrong by gifting this to someone. They also do mini collections, featuring mini versions of their products that you can try before you buy the full size. The Body Oils Mini Collection * comes in a beautiful little package, that would look great sticking out the top of a stocking!
Alexa Sky Botanicals is a fairly new to me brand, but one I’ve been loving! Their products are infused with crystals and gemstones to add extra healing properties to the products. These products would be great for someone who is in tune with their witchy side, which is probably why I love them so much! The Zen Mist Facial Essence Toner * contains essences of Rose Quartz and Selenite crystals and aims to soften, hydrate, regenerate ad energise complexions. The Moroccan Rose Clay Mask * contains crushed pure Seawater Pearls along with French Pink Clay to brighten and plump the skin whilst reducing fine lines. There will be a full review of these products on the blog soon!
Unearthd.co is a new brand that are sister company to the beauty store Naissance. I’ve been lucky enough to try 2 of their products over the last few weeks and have been very impressed. The Cast Your Eyes on Me Lash and Brow Serum * is a lash serum to encourage lash growth and I’ve seen good results so far. The Mane Attraction Organic Hair Serum * is a great little product that nourishes your hair, whilst also providing heat protection. Since switching to natural and organic beauty I’ve struggled finding good hair products and I’ve finally found a good heat defence serum in this one. Both of these would be great products to gift for Christmas and you could introduce your loved one to a new brand too.
If you fancy gifting some make up this Christmas I always think a nice lipstick goes down well. You don’t need to know their foundation colour or whether they like matte or glittery eyeshadow, you can just pick a nice colour roughly the same as what they would normally wear. If in doubt go for a neutral colour, instead of bright reds and pinks. This NEEK Skin Organics Kiss Me Kiss Me Vegan Natural Lipstick * is the perfect gift and there is the option to add this cute little purse too, to make it into a set. Kiss Me Kiss Me is a subtle, neutral pink that would suit most skin tones. The lipstick itself glides on smoothly and feels hydrating on the lips. The packaging is also fully recyclable, making it eco-friendly too. Love Lula are giving away a free purse when you buy a NEEK lipstick right now, so be quick – use the code NEEK at checkout.
Evolve Beauty is a new to me brand that I’ve always heard great things about. I was very kindly sent these cute little sample jars of the Daily Renew Natural Face Cream * and the Radiant Glow Organic Face Mask * to try and I love them! First of all they both smell amazing and are such a treat to use. The mask is great for purifying the skin and provides a gentle exfoliation, so that your skin is left smooth and calm afterwards. The face cream is then used to restore skin with a blend of pure organic oils. Both of these are beautiful products and I’m sure anything from Evolve Beauty would make a great Christmas present.
Kiss The Moon are a gorgeous, natural skincare brand. They have a few Christmas Gift Sets out at the moment, each with a focus on a different aspect of beauty. For example, the GLOW After Dark Skin Revival Set is perfect for waking up tired, dull skin and the CALM Inflight Beauty Sleep Set is great for the traveller you know. Their new Pure Essential Oil Soaps * make a great stocking filler and they come with a beautiful bow wrapped around them to add a hint of luxury.
Walden Perfumes is a luxury, natural perfume brand. These little bottles of liquid gold are stunning and make great gifts. They aren’t cheap, but you will definitely make an impact by giving one of these as a present. My personal favourite is Two Eternities, but you can order the sample pack which makes it easy to test out all the different ones and pick a scent you like before ordering the full size. Love Lula have 40% Walden perfumes at the moment, so make sure you go and take advantage of the offer (use code WALDEN40 at checkout).
And last, but by no means least we have Joik candles. If you’re looking for something more generic, that you can gift to someone that you might not be confident enough to gift skincare or make up to, then candles are the way to go. I’ve been a fan of these candles for the past year and really can’t fault them. They are natural soy wax candles that are clean burning. They smell absolutely divine and the smell lingers for a good few hours afterwards too. I chose the Lavender Fields * one as my latest candle and it’s perfect for the festive season. Lavender is such a relaxing scent and there’s nothing cosier than sitting in front of the fire with a good book or film with this burning in the background.
And so ends my first ever Christmas Gift Guide! Thank you to all the brands that sent products over to be featured. I hope that you enjoyed it and found some great ideas for presents. Although please remember that Christmas isn’t all about presents – it’s also about spending quality time with your loved ones. I hope you all have a lovely Christmas!
