Christmas 2020 might not be like any Christmas we have experienced in our lifetime, but we here to help you make it a sparkly one. In this years' Eco Glitter Fun Eco-Friendly Christmas Guide, we are covering eco-friendly gifts from small businesses who we love, plus a few of our own little gems.
Plantable wildflower cards
You may have never seen this before, we didn't until recently, and we think it's adorable. It's a plantable card, by Loop Loop, made from 100% recycled cotton embedded with flower seeds. Once your loved one has enjoyed the lovely message you have sent them, they can plant the card afterwards to grow a patch of bright flowers! Your message lives on and keeps the planet happy too.
Reuseable Christmas Crackers
Take your Christmas dinner to the next level with these gorgeous origami Christmas crackers by Origamiest. Made with sustainably sourced papers & our biodegradable glitter, they don't rip when pulled due to the clever way in which they are nested together using origami techniques. So, after each 'pop' you can refill and reuse again and again!
The crackers come empty, ready for you to fill with whatever delights you wish - which means you could make it personal for each one of your guests. Be gone disappointing cracker junk!
Award-winning plant-based Chocolate Wreath
Chocolate lover in your life? How about this Award-Winning 75% Solomon Islands Christmas Wreath... mmmm. Luisa takes this 2* Great Taste 2020 Award-Winning chocolate through the artisan bean-to-bar process and pours hand-tempered chocolate into bespoke Christmas wreath moulds, designed by a local woodcarver. They also pay their farmers 69% more than fair trade prices, so they, many of which are females, can live a better life and send their kids to school. Each one is individually wrapped and luxuriously presented in a gift box, making it a truly tasty and thoughtful gift.
Zero waste Smellies
Smellies for Christmas are a given, so why not treat loved ones to the MERRY range of soaps and delights from Conchus. The MERRY range soap bars have a cute festive red and green design, that comes from the natural clays and botanicals used to create this wonderful bar. It also smells like every amazing Christmas scent in one. With warm, sweet-spicy flavours, fresh notes of evergreen, with a twist of zesty orange.
