Many of the linked companies are small businesses and I try to make sure all my gift suggestions are ethical.
Book Geek snippets
book geek have extravagant, literary, and generally excellent gifts. This year they’ve added a huge amount of divine literary goodness to their range – candles are my favourite, although I like the leather Yoshi keyrings, Chapter One earrings and enamel pins better! Her service is super fast and reliable, and a #ladystartup. Use the code CBD 10% discount on all purchases.
Oh My Giddy Aunt Treasured Memories
If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I like souvenir gifts from Oh my giddy aunt
Nikki’s attention to detail and service is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced shopping online. I have bought charm bracelets for the girls, charm bracelets as a combo gift for colleagues (a unique charm for each person), charm necklaces, engraved silver whistles, jewelry boxes and silver book buckles. The ‘queen bee’ ring below is one of my favorite pieces and I wear it every day. Enter the CBD code at any Oh my giddy aunt buy to receive a free silver amulet.
Ruby Olive Statement Jewelry
ruby olive jewelry has a colour, shape and pattern for everyone and I am rarely missing one of the Ruby Olive necklaces these days, I love the feel of hand-poured resin and the incredibly bold colors. The colors and quality of ruby olive the pieces are delicious, affordable, and just plain fun.
My Christmas dress each year tends to be Gorman, though last year The Beekeeper was adamant about ugly Christmas shirts that DIDN’T WORK with my pink Gorman wrap dress. For the actual Christmas day I am craving one or all of the Gorman wine coolers and lunch bags and have a ‘collection’ of Gorman pillowcases. You can buy Gorman through this link.
Reusable and sustainable options from Biome
KeepCups are always a welcome gift as, for most of us, caffeine is a high priority. While I’m not a fan of buying a $2 mug for the teachers, I am a fan of buying them a Keep Cup to keep your coffee hot, because find me a teacher who can sit down to a full cup of life-giving caffeine.
biome also has a wide variety of fair trade and sustainable gifts, including beautiful australian christmas decorations and I love, I love, I love the banksia tea lights – I have more than a few. the Bioma range of beauty and DIY products it is of exceptional quality and is simply and beautifully packaged, I highly recommend them.
