Tis the season that we’re all madly dashing to buy last minute gifts and stocking fillers, which let’s be honest, are an essential part of many peoples’ Christmas traditions. As much as we can get swept away in the festivities, it is important that we continue to try to consider sustainability and make small changes towards shopping more consciously. Everyone loves a stocking filler and it’s a simple way to make small sustainable swaps. So, here are five stocking fillers that are all under £15, meaning that you can shop ethically, not leave your house and not break the bank!
PURDY & FIGG HAND SANITISER
We finally have a vaccine, which is fantastic! However, we are still going to be using hand sanitizer for the foreseeable future and long after Covid has disappeared, all in the name of hygiene! With santiser now being a handbag essential, let’s give it a luxury and sustainable edge. It would be rude not to. This Purdy & Figg santiser was created by an NHS nurse who wanted to eliminate the harmful chemicals in sanitser and also a create a bottle that was free of single-use plastic. The glass bottles are refillable and both look and smell divine.
OMBAR CENTRES HAZELNUT TRUFFLE CHOCOLATE
Ombar are a delicious vegan, fair-trade chocolate brand who create their bars both gluten and refined sugar-free but taste rich, chocolatey and delicious. They have filled their bars with organically-sourced hazelnuts grown in Sicily. Essentially, this is the organic and ethical version of a Ferrero Roche. Yes please.
BRAMBLE & BLOSSOM LUXURY ROSE BATH SALTS
Wearth London are stocking these luxury bath salts which are handmade in England and are packed full of ethically-sourced and vegan ingredients including Dead Sea salts, Rose Otto essential oil and crushed rose buds. We all deserve to pamper ourselves in a luxury bath as we approach the end of 2020 (good riddance).
BAMBOOTIQUE UK NATURAL COCONUT BOWLS
These bowls are both Pinterest-worthy and sustainable. They come with a free coconut spoon and if breakfast wasn’t exciting enough already (I’ll take peanut butter and oats any day) then this is going to up your morning routine. The entire bowl is made from a coconut shell, polished with organic coconut oil and is a great way to support an Etsy business and prevent waste from coconut trees.
