Forget the Black Friday sales and give with thought and love this season. I have teamed up with my sustainable sisters to create a Holiday Gift Guide full of gifts which do good. As tempting as they may be say no to mega sales this weekend and instead support your local brands who have ethics and sustainability in their heart and core.
If you enjoyed our Holiday Lookbook, you will definitely love this! Make sure to look out for great discounts and our one big festive giveaway!
GIFTS FOR THE ECO-BABE
Little Difference is an eco-friendly stationery brand providing greeting cards, notebooks, and prints inspired by nature. Launched by a couple with a love for nature, they decided to start a business that runs in the most Earth caring way possible. All of their products are made using 100% recycled paper and 100% biodegradable packaging. Their mission is to make the consumer happy and fulfilled with a uniquely designed product that signifies they have made a “Little Difference” in the world whilst making a net positive impact on nature by regeneration the world’s forests. For this reason they have started a “1 Card, 1 Tree” initiative where they pay for the planting, raising and protection of one tree towards reforestation for every single product sold!

I have fallen head over heels for the above large pouch from One Nine Eight Five! It is so comfortable to carry and can fit lots of bits and bobs! As my birthday is coming up I might be treating myself to one of these beauties.

Greenfibres has been making and selling organic textiles since 1996. William and Gabriela Lana launched this mindful brand because they wanted to offer beautiful and useful textile products that are kind to the environment and to our health. They also wanted to provide meaningful livelihoods for everyone who work with and in Greenfibres. With a gorgeous store in Totnes, Devon, you can visit this little country haven to experience their homely array of natural products including clothing, blankets, organic and natural mattresses, natural cleaning products, pillows and toiletries.
This lovely company have recently launched a great collection of organic towels and bathrobes (brown bathrobe pictured in the above general flatlay) which are made from 100% Soil Association certified organic cotton. The first thought that popped into my head when I came across this cosy bathrobe was “I could use one of these for the sauna!”, being married to a Swedish Finn will do that to you!
58 Lifestyle was created by the two beautiful souls Michal Cohen-Sagi and Noam Sagi who believe that wellbeing, health and beauty should be treated by a 360 approach. They opened a well being centre in London (58 Well Being Centre, Mayfair) and it’s pretty unique in terms of what they offer. Anything from massage to holistic treatments and western medical practitioners so they are definitely worth a visit. They also developed these gorgeous
Their products, which include notes of green mandarin, jasmine, coriander and ylang ylang amongst other natural ingredients that recreate a harmonious feeling that ultimately enhances our wellbeing. They are also free from sulphates, parabens and harsh additives. They are little packages of harmony and balance that create an environment fit for anyone yearning a peaceful soulful lifestyle.

We all love buying babies beautiful products, particularly during the holiday season. Sadly there are too many children who don’t have anyone to buy them presents. However, when you buy from From Babies With Love, every single penny of profit, goes round the world to help orphaned and abandoned children. They work with the charities SOS Children’s Villages and Street Child to provide a family home, education, healthcare and support to overcome trauma. It’s amazing and essential work.
From Babies With Love provide us with the perfect organic baby gift. All their designs are ethically and sustainably sourced. They use the softest 100% organic cotton, and their toys are made from wood from sustainable sources and come in recyclable packaging.
