Green Gift Ideas Under $20
Hurraw Lip Balms
Hurraw lip balms are all made from raw organic ingredients with cold pressed butters and oils. They're vegan and gluten free, too, so they're a perfect little gift for just about anybody. The range of flavours is delicious - chocolate, coconut, pink grapefruit and vanilla to name just a few. Stock up on a few of these little lovelies and you've always got a suitable last minute gift!
Benecos Nail Polishes
I love nail polish, but I don't love how toxic it can be! So when I saw these little beauties from Benecos, I immediately ticked off a few Christmas gifts in my head. They're a bargain at $10.95, and I love that fact that they're 5 free. There's no nasties like formaldehyde, toluene or camphor. No parabens, no phthalates, no petrochemicals, etc. And it's long lasting, and chip free, too!
I reckon that Hot Summer
is the perfect summer shade, and I've got a feeling it will be seeing a few beaches and BBQs this year!
Benecos Natural Lipgloss
Benecos is a German brand of all natural cosmetics, and they're an absolute bargain. I can't believe they can do such good quality for such great prices. There's no catch, they're BDIH certified so you know they're natural, and the products are awesome. These make great stocking fillers.
I love the Natural Glam
shade - it's neutral, and it suits just about everyone! I think they'd make a great gift for a friend, and at this price they'd be perfect for a teen or tween, too.
Badger Balm Tension Soother Stick
I reckon just about every mum could do with one of these! Badger's beautiful aromatherapy stick is perfect for anyone who's ever had a stressful day. It's packed with calming, soothing essential oils that naturally smell divine.
And I love the fact that it's in a base of organic olive oil and beeswax, so it's super moisturising, too. Ideal for popping on pulse points or your temples, and the compact size fits perfectly into a handbag.
Green Gift Ideas Under $35
Butter London Yummy Mummy Nail Polish
Another one of my favourites! This bestselling shade suits just about every skin tone. It's neutral, yet classy and it's professional enough to wear to work. The Patent Shine 10x formula 7 free formula is long lasting and chip resistant, too.
Great as a gift for a girlfriend, and there's lots of shades
to choose from.
Andalou Naturals Get Started 5 Mini's
These cute minis are a brilliant gift idea. Perfect for travelling, and if you're trying to encourage a friend to make the switch to natural skincare, this will do the trick!
There are packs for the 1000 Roses Sensitive Skin
range, the Age Defying
range and the Brightening
range, so you'll find something to suit everyone!
Weleda Pomegranate Hand Cream Gift Pack
Perfect for dry, hardworking hands! This beautiful gift pack from Weleda is made with nourishing organic pomegranate seed oils to repair cuticles and dry skin. It smells divine, too.
I've told you before that this is my favourite handcream
, and I have to admit that I've got my eye on one of these gift packs for myself!
Acure Body Lotion & Body Wash
Simple As That Exfoliant & Matcha mask
Always a popular gift, why not give a set of Body Lotion & Body Wash from Acure Organics? My favourite is the Energizing
combo, with a citrussy mandarin scent that's so refreshing to use in the morning!
We've got discounted combo packs at Hello Charlie, so you can mix and match your favourite body lotion and body wash!
Simple, organic ingredients that really work. It's Simple As That. Why not combine the Facial Exfoliant with the luxurious antioxidant rich Matcha Mask? Beautifully packaged in simple glass containers, this would make a gorgeous gift!
Eco Tan Invisible Tan & Himalayan Salt Scrub
For the sensible sunlover who wants that bronzed look without the long term skin damage! How about this certified organic, Australian made Eco Tan duo? The Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub preps and exfoliates your skin, and the Invisible Tan will give you a golden bronze tan without the nasty chemicals.
Practical Gifts for the Family
Aroma Bloom Diffuser and essential oil blend
The Aroma Bloom is a 5 in 1 ultrasonic diffuser, air purifier, night light ioniser and humidifier in one. Add a relaxing essential oil blend, and this is a perfect gift for any busy mum (and aren't we all?).
Use it in winter with a Breathe
blend to help with coughs and colds, and to add moisture back into dry air. Use it with a Vitality
blend to help with concentration and focus, or add a Romance
oil blend and the soft night light for calm and relaxation.
Skip Hop Outdoor Blanket & Cooler Bag
Perfect for picnics or for an impromptu play in the park! This outdoor blanket from Skip Hop has a water resistant canvas backing, so you won't get a wet bum from sitting on the grass.
It's also got a built in cooler bag for snacks and drinks, and you can detach it from the blanket and carry it separately. The whole thing packs down to the size of a messenger back and slings over your shoulder, leaving your hands free. It's a practical, stylish gift that will get years of use.
