Eco Friendly Gift Ideas

P.F. scented candles - black fig

We love Christmas here – as you may have noticed from reading our gift ideas blogs over the last few weeks! So far we’ve covered homeware gifts and the ideal presents for both the men and women in your life. Now its time to take a look specifically at the more natural, eco-friendly gift ideas in our range. Considering we’re the Natural Bed Company, you can be assured – we’ve got quite a few ideas for you!

Lets start by taking a look at a new range for Christmas 2019 from the P.F. Candle Co.; this collection is proudly cruelty free and vegan – the packaging is recyclable too. We currently offer a selection of candles, unisex eau de parfum, room sprays and incense sticks – giving you plenty of scope to find the perfect gift. Each product available in the following luxurious scents: Teakwood & Tobacco, Amber & Moss, Golden Coast (a spicy, woody scent with hints of lavender) Black Fig, Sandalwood Rose and Piñon.

Continuing with the candle theme, take a look at our range of Scented Woodwick Candles; they are hand-poured in the UK, contain no animal derived materials or parabens and just like the P.F Candles above, you can even recycle the glass jars (or re-use them as plant-pots, its up to you). The candle is packaged in a natural cotton, reusable drawstring bag (so you don’t even have to wrap it!) and has a burn time of approximately 70 hours. You can choose from four subtle and sophisticated scents: Smoked Rose & Sumatran Pine, Black Ash & Frankincense, Bergamot Oil & Bamboo and Velvet Woods & Amber. All are unusual, smokey and sophisticated scents – perfect for winter!

Our selection of organic toiletries from Meraki have been popular choices for the last couple of Christmases and it looks like that will continue this year. The organic body wash, hand wash and lotion are made to care for you and the environment. Scent free, they are perfect for a sensitive skin and for those who want to avoid harmful chemicals. Add an organic cotton Meraki towel, and maybe a scented candle or bath melt, to make up a beautiful, luxury gift set (just give us a call with your budget to make up a bespoke gift set for you).

Meraki also make a lovely, relaxing neck wrap and eye pillow using organic linen, organic cotton and clay beads. Heat or cool these comforting pads and rest is not far away – just what you need after a hectic Christmas. Add a meraki room diffuser to complete the mood.

If you are looking for a gift that is a benefit to more than the recipient alone, all profits from the Ubiety range will help to fund Dorothy House Hospice Care, to provide end of life care for more people with a life-limiting illness, their families and carers. Ubiety is also a fully sustainable product range using vegan and environmentally friendly ingredients that puts people and the planet first. This collection also a real treat for the recipient, these beautifully scented toiletries will leave the skin soft and nourished, the lip balm is possibily the best I’ve eaver used! While the stylish, monochrome packaging will update any bathroom.
If you like the monochrome look, take a look at our new Meraki hammam robes – they are made of pure cotton and are soft and gentle to the skin.

Our organic cotton towels make another great Christmas gift – for the environmentally conscious or interior design fan alike. These beautiful wrap towels are available in a range of sizes, with a stylish design feature that allows the wearer to wrap the towel around them and then easily keep the towel in place. These are light-weight spa towels, but we also have plush terry weave towels in organic cotton too. Little ones needn’t be left out either – we also have soft, waffle style, organic cotton towels with hoods designed for babies.

Why buy organic cotton?
Organic cotton is grown using growing systems that replenish and maintain soil fertility and build biologically diverse agriculture. Organic cotton uses far less water too. The main benefit of organic materials, however, is that the crops aren’t treated with pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and Genetically Modified Organisms.

Don’t forget to check out the rest of our natural gift collection, we have soft wool throws, scarves and shawls, cosy wool slippers and luxury cotton nightwear and blankets. Our organic, natural bedding is also worth checking out to help make your own Christmas a cosy, restful and eco-friendly season.
