This gift guide has a bit of something for everyone. From Artwork to password savers and everything in between.
Five Minute Mum.*
This book is aimed at keeping the children entertained with a fun range of activities. Written by Daisy Upton (who you can find here on Instagram).
there are activities to keep them active, activities to help them start school, a whole bunch on phonics and counting and so much more. This one comes highly recommend for when you just need 5 minutes to yourself and you don’t even have to buy lots of special equipment. All activities are simple enough to set up with things you already have.
If you’ve seen my eco-friendly gift guide, you’ll have noticed the Bee theme. This gorgeous print is from Ink and Drop and I love how it stands out on my dark walls.
They have such a wide range of prints available so there will be something to suit every home and budget, with many of their print being customisable
Fragrance and fashion brands tend to release a new collections at this time of year. Few gifts are as personal as scent and giving perfume comes with an air of luxury. The new Sweet treats collection from Ted Baker is a lovely range and would be a great gift to sweeten the end of 2020.
Rubies in the Rubble – Relish Gift Set
Who doesn’t love a bit of chutney with cheese? It’s one of the Christmas foods I look forward to the most!
Made using ‘wonky’ veg that would have otherwise gone to waste (just because its the wrong shape or colour!) these delicious condiments from Rubies in the Rubble, would make a great gift on their own or included as part of a hamper.
Our Remedy CBD Oil
Our Remedy is a great little pick me up for anyone that needs a little help with period pains or hormones that need a little balance, anxiety and more.
Each full pipette contains a mixture of CBD oil, Clary Sage and Peppermint and can be taken either by dropping under the tongue or mixing with food and drink. My favourite is to drop it into a hot chocolate with squirty cream so that it gives it a little minty kick!
Not only that, for every full-price bottle sold, Our Remedy donate sustainable period products to help fight period poverty!
YubiKey by Yubico
This tiny little key is a fantastic gift idea! YubiKey totally removes the need to remember all of your online passwords or have them written down. You can either insert into a USB port or just tap against your phone (depending on model) and what’s more, it’s crush-proof, water-resistant, doesn’t require batteries and it fits perfectly on your keyring. This would make the perfect gift for those now working from home or on shared computers, especitally if you have to log in to things for various different clients. What a great way to keep your passwords safe!
We were sent this hamper earlier in the year for my mums 60th birthday and is was so beautifully put together – But you can make a hamper yourself so easily and theme it to your requirements. We do one every year for Liam’s Grandma as she already has everything she needs so a Hamper is a fantastic way to turn lots of little treats in to one big beautiful one!
Ohele reuseable cup
Reusable cups are everywhere these days – and rightly so. But this one from Ohelo is made safer with lead-free solder as well as being BPA, BPS and BPF free. A true multi-tasker! Continuing with the bee theme, this has certainly become my favourite mug. I take it to the allotment with some sweet chai tea and it stays warm for up to 6 hours (or cold for 12 hours)
Getting outside is so important for our mental health – now more than ever and I absolutely love that I can keep up with the kids now with my very own Frenzy adult scooter. I take it on the school run and all sorts. Scooters are easy to use, suitable for adults and children alike and are a great form of exercise.
Not only that, They are much better for the environment than travelling by car – especially on small journeys like the school run.
