Spread the joy a little more sustainably this year with gifts that love your body and the planet. From vegan and nature-inspired goodies to treats that can be repurposed or recycled, this is our ultimate guide to eco-friendly Christmas gifts.
With everything in excess, from tinsel to gift tags, Christmas can be tough on the planet. And it got us thinking, how can we make every Christmas greener than the last?
Well, since last Christmas we’ve helped save 29 tonnes of plastic by removing it from our Christmas offering. That’s the weight of 112,000 Christmas baubles! How cool is that? We’ve put together a round-up of gifts that do good, made with lovely stuff sourced through our Community Fair Trade partnerships, or that feature clever packaging designed for a second life. Keep scrolling to see how we can be even greener this season.
Made with love and crafted for joy, these gifts not only bring joy to the people you give them to – they help support our Community Fair Trade partners who help us make them.
Our Community Fair Trade programmes are our way of sourcing ethical, high-quality ingredients and materials from producers, farmers and artisans across the globe. It helps our suppliers gain market access and invest in social and environmental projects that benefit their communities. And helps us fill our Christmas gifts and products with the good stuff.Discover more

A LONG-STANDING MEMBER OF GET PAPER INDUSTRY
Everyone loves to spoil their loved ones at Christmas, but gifting is a big contributor when it comes to waste. That’s why we’ve rounded up some goodies that can be reused, recycled or come in re-giftable packaging.
It’s important to choose gifts that are made with more natural materials so that we can help cut back on the amount of plastic in the environment. By choosing more natural materials, we also support the small-scale artisans who source and craft these materials.
Whether you’re searching for the perfect pressies for your plant-based pals or just want to shop a little more mindfully, we have more vegan gifts than ever this Christmas. From our Lemon Caring & Purifying Hair Mist to our Skincare & Chill CBD Skincare Gift, our vegan goodies are sure to put a smile on their face. Check out our vegan gift guide for more inspiration. These gifts are winners with every body, vegan or not.
This Christmas, we want to celebrate those heroes who selflessly care for others all year round. That’s why our gifts don’t just bring joy to the people you love. They will also help us donate to organisations across the globe which support unpaid carers and volunteers.Find out more
