As Christmas approaches, it's hard to avoid the shopping frenzy that comes at this time of year. We try to keep it simple and, where possible, avoid lots of unnecessary buying and bulk. Here are a five ideas from our Christmas list:
- An Experience - A fun, eco-friendly and unusual gift. Why not treat yourself or someone else to some new year fitness? Check out the Uber Fit Brunch, outdoor wellbeing, yoga hiking and great food, in the countryside near Bath. @ubernick
- A Warm Hat - We love The Finisterre Fisherman Beanie, a great winter hat for guys and girls alike. Handy post-surfing, on winter walks and even for Christmas lunch! All from an ethical company inspired by the ocean and working to do right by the environment too. We fancy it in yellow. @FinisterreUK
- Subscriptions - The gift that keeps giving. We love the Reading Year from Mr B's Emporium of Reading Delights. Or you could try one of our our coffee subscriptions. @mrbsemporium
Natural skincare - We all love a bit of pampering and our skin always needs a bit of extra love in winter. Neal's Yard has a great range for men and their Rose Balm is a great gift for women. Or make a coffee face scrub yourself with coffee grounds, sugar and coconut oil, put it in a jar with a tag on and it's a lovely gift. Learn how here.
- Foodie presents - Perfect for the person that seems to have everything else. Try our new Chai by The Coffee Camper, handmade with ethically sourced ingredients, it's great for making chai lattes at home, spicing up your festive cocktails and Christmas baking. @thecoffeecamper
