It’s packed full of present ideas with meaning – from the mindful to the eco-friendly and the well-being focused. Rest assured, the lucky recipients of these great gifts will start 2019 with their best foot forward.

With an opening for chargers, this stylish Scandi-style box means your recipient can leave their phone out of reach and out of sight at bedtime.
Deep Sleep Heavenly Candle by This Works
As well as keeping your device out of reach at bedtime, creating an evening ritual is a great way to prepare for a good night’s sleep. Treat your giftee to This Work’s popular Deep Sleep Heavenly Candle which contains lavender and camomile essential oils known for their relaxing and calming properties.
For Embracing Creativity
The bullet journal method, or short-form journal keeping, was created by Ryder Carroll. This mindfulness practice is a great way to reflect on the past, present and future. Yet, some bujo enthusiasts have taken their dotted journals to a new level with beautiful illustrations and doodles. The Leuchtturm 1917 dotted notebook is a popular choice for those getting started – just add pens!
Flow Magazine’s Book for Paper Lovers is another great gift that encourages mindfulness and creativity. It includes 300 paper items, such as stickers, gift tags, postcards and garlands in Flow’s signature whimsical style of illustration. Their 6th edition is out now and features everything from daschunds to Frida Kahlo.
Did you know that around 79% of the plastic produced to date has ended up in landfill or elsewhere in the environment? There’s no doubt that we need to work harder to solve the plastic problem. In addition to plastic waste, there are also concerns around the chemicals found in plastic bottles that can leach into our drinks. To help tackle this issue, onegreenbottle has become one of the leading suppliers of stainless steel bottles in the UK.
For that friend who is always on the go, treat them to a stylish and durable bottle from onegreenbottle and save them a few pennies in the process by encouraging them to refill, rather than rebuy.
With similar goals to onegreenbottle, The Beeswax Wrap Co. create a natural alternative to clingfilm and tin foil that ensures chemicals do not leach into foods. Made from cotton, pine resin, organic jojoba oil and UK beeswax, the colourful wraps are both reusable and biodegradable. Skip the plastic stocking fillers and opt for some of these instead.
