Last minute gifts
Christmas is only a week away, which means you’re running out of time to cross those last few people off your list. Although, just because you’re pressed for time, it doesn’t mean you can’t find an amazing gift. If you are looking for that perfect last minute gift, we’ve put together some of our favourite items from our Brands to Trust. Choose from a cosy cashmere sweater, delicate jewellery or relaxing self care products. Read on to discover everything you need to get that shopping done.
A cosy cashmere jumper
The Cara Crew Neck Cashmere Sweater from Santicler is a super soft jumper made from 100% Italian cashmere, and it’s the perfect way to stay cosy and stylish over the winter holidays. Apart from its undeniable beauty, you’ll also be gifting the luxury of a long-lasting piece that is Woolmark certified.
A multi-use mist
Give three gifts in one with the Soul Mist from The Universal Soul Company. The brand’s signature lavender and patchouli fragrance is calming and can be used as a pillow spray, room spray or meditation spray. It’s also alcohol-free, made with 100% natural essential oils and it is hand blended in the UK.
Pyjamas always make a great gift, but instead of choosing a typical set, go with something more classic, like the Long Chemise from Bodas. Made from breathable, high-quality cotton, this chemise is also versatile – throw it on under a denim jacket come summer, or wear it over a pair of jeans.
A perfume set
This gift is for the indecisive perfume lover on your list. A collection of Lumira‘s most popular fragrances in travel-friendly packaging will mean they don’t have to pack just one. Each of the five unique scents is paraben, sulfate phlalate and phosphate free, the ingredients are all responsibly sourced, and the final product is packaged in recyclable glass.
A three-in-one beauty balm
The brand new beauty balm, Éclat Extraodinaire from La Fervance, is high-performance formula that works as a moisturiser, mask, and overnight mask. Made with 23k gold and 67% active ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, Kakadu plum and Vitamin E, the COSMOS-certified balm leaves the skin feeling hydrated, smoothed and lifted. This is the perfect gift for the beauty lover on your list.
Warming, herbal tea
One of the best gifts to give (and receive) is tea. Inlight makes the perfect herbal fusion of orange, ginger, white pepper, and cinnamon that’s ideal for relaxing inside on a cold day. Inlight’s founder, Dr. Spiezia, is a medical herbalist, and the brand’s tea is made with his expertise and carefully selected organic ingredients.
Everyone needs lounge pants, especially over the holidays. The Lapworth Lounge Pants from Foxology are made with super-fine merino wool and are soft on the skin with the added benefit of the breathability and durability. They are knitted in the UK and are seam-free for minimal waste and extra comfort.
A stunning diamond bracelet
Made with 18k yellow gold, set with diamonds and a small blue sapphire cabochon, Noor Fares‘ Torque Bracelet makes the perfect gift for anyone on your list who loves to sparkle. Each element of the bracelet is sustainably sourced and the piece was created by Noor in the UK.
A beauty gift set
All of Lisa Franklin‘s products are “effective, responsible and kind,” which means they are made with high-quality, cruelty-free ingredients that are good for your skin and the planet. With the brand’s Christmas gift set, a lucky someone on your list will get three of their best products, including a cleanser, serum and moisturiser.
Support a crowdfunding campaign
Threadtales is a UK-based company that creates sustainable scarves, blankets and kaftans, handwoven by skilled artisans. Put your gift of support in a loved one’s name and both you and they will be helping to ensure the longevity of a wonderful British brand.
