The Christmas season is fast approaching. How exciting!
If you are reading this blog post then we're pretty sure you're the kind of person that likes to give people a meaningful gift! We're huge fans of gifts that give back and thought we'd pull together a quick post with some of our favourite Christmas present ideas. Enjoy!
1. Winter Funderland Merry Morning Mingle Candle Tin (Bridge Water Candle Company)
Everyone loves the festive period, so what could be better than having a Christmas scented home all year round? Bridgewater Candle Company offers quirky and comforting fragrances and they are passionate about “sharing our blessings”. Through a partnership with Rice Bowls they donate a portion of each jar candle sale to feed an orphan for a day.
A perfect Christmas gift is the Mingle Tin Winter Funderland Merry Morning, yes, it is a bit of a tongue-twister but with hints of sugared pears, cinnamon, clove, vanilla and white musk it will ensure Christmas spirit all year round. More importantly, it’s part of the Light A Candle Feed A Child-Mingle Candle Tin Collection- which provides not one, but three meals for every candle sold.
2. Divine Chocolates Christmas hamper (Divine Chocolates)
Divine Chocolate is devoted to giving cocoa farmers the opportunity to thrive in business and improve their communities. They are the only FairTrade company which is 44% owned by the cocoa farmers. Made with premium Ghanaian cocoa beans Divine Chocolate offers several unique products such as the Dark Chocolate Toffee and Sea Salt chocolate bar and the Dark Chocolate After-Dinner Ginger Thins. You never need an excuse to buy chocolate but you will feel even better knowing that Divine Chocolate have invested their profits into improving health, sanitation and water in cocoa producing villages.
Of course with chocolate, the bigger the better. Divine Chocolate’s Christmas Hamper includes Spiced Toffee Apple milk chocolate bars, milk chocolate coins and Caramelised Espresso milk chocolate bars just to name just a few. It’s guaranteed to be a winner this Christmas. OMGEEEE
3. The Prankster Socks (Jollies Goods)
We freaking love Jollies Goods! They are a British based sock company. Which each pair of socks they sell they donate a pair of socks to a homeless charity.
'Wear a pair, share a pair'
They've got a tone of different styles but our favourites have to be these little Pranksters! All of their socks are made up in Leicester, England. So go and pick up a pair for your dad, he'll love em.
4. The Cooper Bag (Krochet Kids)
Krochet Kids has turned an unusual pastime into a force for good. The unlikely pairing of crochet and three teenage classmates (all male) seemed to win the hearts and minds of curious consumers all over the USA. If it can be crocheted, they will do it- but they have also extended their product line to clothing, bags and accessories. Using crochet to help the poorest communities earn a living, they set up in Uganda and are now also making an impact in Peru.
The Cooper Bag is a versatile item lovingly created by women in Peru or Uganda with the finest materials including vegan leather. Every item is hand signed by the woman who made it giving a true connection to the women KrochetKids helps every day. With a fairisle pattern it will definitely get you into the Christmas spirit.
5. Wapikka Teddy Bear (Wapikka)
Of course, we cannot forget the greatest and cuddliest Christmas gift EVER- our very own Wapikka! Handmade in Britain from the finest ethically-sourced mohair and delivered in a bold presentation box, Wapikka is an ideal present for all those teddy bear fans out there.
By working with our charity partners Mary’s Meals, every Wapikka bear sold provides one child with school meals for a year- transforming a Christmas present into a life-changing investment.
