Sustainable Christmas Gift Guide

Is anyone else feeling like Christmas arrived super quickly this year? One moment we were in July and then in one blink came December. We are not complaining; however, because Christmas is truly our favourite time of year. Baking Christmas treats, wandering the streets full of fairy lights, watching Love Actually and listening to "Last Christmas" by Wham! on repeat (Christian's favourite Christmas song) are all part of the celebrations. 
There is no doubt this year has been tough for many business owners. As we enter our festive season we thought it was the perfect opportunity to share our favourite sustainable brands. 
Modern sustainable sunglasses that will last a lifetime. We were immediately mesmerised with this brand's concept: 100% biodegradable bio-acetate frames from responsibly-harvested wood - how amazing is that?!
Made from recycled plastic bottles, these eco-friendly towels are a summer essential. With the added bonus of sand-free technology, you will never take a car load of sand home with you again.
These handmade ceramics are definitely a favourite in our office. When we received our keep cups in the mail, we all fell in love. These earthy rustic homewares are the perfect addition to anyone's stocking.
If you are like me, a bubble bath and a sneaky glass of wine is the ideal unwind time. To make it better, add in these soaks and scrubs to create the ultimate day spa experience in the comfort of your own home.
I love burning candles and having incense around the home. I basically want my house to smell like a florist all year around. However, these pastel and quirky candles are too pretty to burn. Decisions, decisions!
Let's be honest, we have all made that resolution to join a gym and get fit in the New Year. So, why not set that goal and look fabulous in sustainable active wear in the process?
Take a plant-based journey in your kitchen with Ellie Bullen's latest cookbook. We love her recipes, but wish that every time we created something from this book it would turned out like the picture.
As you run down this list you can probably sense a ‘summer essential’ theme. So, it's an obvious choice for us to add our favourite Byron Bay hat brand. Will & Bear design hats from natural and biodegradable fibres and for every purchase made they plant ten trees.
I am literally in love with my spell intimates, I wear them every day. The combination of cute bohemian prints and comfortable recycled fabric gives them a secure place on my Christmas wish list every year.
A big shout out to our product photographer, Kayla, who released a collection of beautiful floral prints for your home or office. Her talents are magical as she captures the most stunning images of peonies, poppies, and orchids. 
Let's mix it up this holiday season, and instead of entering the crowded shopping centres to purchase gifts for your loved ones; let's support the individuals, the small businesses, the local creatives. Let's buy present that protect the planet!
