At Natural Bed Company, we think that choosing an Eco-Friendly Christmas gift is always a good idea! With this handy gift guide, it certainly doesn’t mean skipping out on those luxury items that family and friends would love to find under the tree.

It’s still November but Sheffield is certainly full of people getting a head start on their Christmas shopping! So, whether you’re part of the early crowd or a last minute shopper, we’re here to help you find the perfect gifts for your loved ones! Check out some of our favourite sustainable picks below…

Eco Friendly – Luxurious Loungewear

Whether you’ve been working from home or simply changing into your comfies as soon as you get in the door, we can all agree – comfortable loungewear is a must have these days. So why not treat your friends, family (or even yourself) to items that have been made sustainably, feel luxurious and will last for years to come!

Our current favourites are the unisex Relaxed Linen Robe – available in Black or Rust, these are perfect for throwing on first thing in the morning while you make a coffee or lounging in the evening before bed. Available in one size and made with 80% Linen and 20% cotton, these offer a relaxed and slouchy fit. Perfect for that boho look!
If you like those but need more of a size range, check out the Unisex Luxury Soft Cotton Robes. These come in three sizes (small, medium and large) and are available in an Ivory or Charcoal paired with a deep red detailing. These robes are 100% cotton, so give a lighter feel – making them a wonderful all round lounger at home or on holiday!

For a relaxed day or sleepwear option, the Lounge Dress in Mid or Maxi are a wonderful gift for the laid back lady in your life or that eco friendly aunty you never know what to buy! Hand loomed by master weavers in a shantung yarn of grey ash or pale ecru, this dress has a lovely laid back style and gently crumpled, linen look. This means you can air dry and go – no ironing needed! With delicate ecru pinstripe running through the sleeves, sides and pockets. Easy to wear, pull on cut with scoop neck and hip pockets.

Both sets of loungewear and robes are hand loomed and ethically made with 100% OEKO TEX certified organic cotton.

One of our newer items is sure to impress – the Colourful Sustainable Slippers! A recycled plastic upper that feels like soft felt – each slipper is the equivalent of 2 recycled plastic bottles! With a cushioned sole insert and natural rubber sole, these slippers are great for the planet and your feet. Available in a range of stylish, vibrant colour-ways, you’re sure to find something for your loved ones.

Sustainable Bathroom Accessories

Everyone deserves a proper pamper all year round, so luxurious bathroom treats are always my go-to for an easy gift!

A staple in everyones bathroom should be fluffy, spa like towels. There’s no need to compromise on this feeling or sustainability with the Organic Cotton Towels – made from 100% organic cotton, these deep pile towels give you that spa like feeling whilst still being eco friendly! Available in Hand or Bath size and a choice of Dark Grey, Taupe or Pale Clay. Looking for something a little different? We love the Organic Cotton Waffle Towels for a more Scandi feel for that trendy friend. Well made, stylish and 100% GOTS and Soil Association certified organic cotton – what’s not to love!

This blog post would not be complete without a mention to Meraki – We love their wide range of toiletries and homewares that are inspired by nature. From Bodywash to Candles, there is truly something for everyone. I’ve been eyeing up the Hair Care and Hand Care sets for my Mum and the Self Tan drops and Nourishing Lip Gloss set are perfect for that glamorous friend. There’s also the Lip Balm and Bath Melts set – perfect secret santa gifts!

The Eco Friendly Toothbrush sets are the perfect addition to a guest bathroom or master ensuite – a set of 4 toothbrushes in a cardboard tube. The handle is made from sustainably sourced bamboo and is also compostable! The other set contains three toothbrushes – the handle is made of 55% wheat straw and 45% PP, with medium-soft nylon bristles.
Paired with the Double Storage Jar in Bamboo, this would make a great set! Made from sustainably harvested bamboo, selected for its honey colour, beautiful grain pattern, remarkable durability and strong ecological credentials. Finished with a matte, water resistant lacquer for a modern yet warm look.

Beautiful Eco Friendly Bedroom Accessories

There’s no greater feeling than snuggling up in your own bed after a long day or a weekend away. Give the gift of ultimate comfort and help your loved ones invest in a cosy bedroom environment and, ultimately, better sleep!

We know a good nights rest begins with the right mattress. But the right bedding also plays a big part! The best texture and temperature regulating, as well as style and colour all help to create a cohesive cosy feeling.
For an everyday essential, there’s the Organic cotton bedding. Undyed and unbleached – this is a strong, long-lasting 100% organic cotton that softens with use and washing. Also available in a Sateen finish, for the ultimate luxury Hotel feeling. For a more relaxed look, check our the Brown Melange or Ivory everyday cotton – the same organic cotton in a fashionable taupe or clean off-white shade – the perfect neural to ground a colourful space or add some depth to a boho style.
What a delight to wake up surrounded by organic, ethical and natural bedding! Rest soundly knowing that it is responsibly made and fairly traded.

No bedroom is complete without the glow of a scented candle!
We love the Aery Botanical Candles – Sustainably made soy botanical candles presented in recyclable glass create tranquil, uplifting sanctuaries with in-depth blends. Clean and long-burning biodegradable soy wax, with lead free cotton wicks in a clear glass jar. These unique botanical candles would make an ideal gift or a treat for yourself, with 3 harmonious scents, there’s an option for everyone. See the gift set for those who can’t decide – the ultimate bundle!
