I think we can all agree that 2020 is the year that we could really do with a large dose of festive spirit! I’ve put together some green, natural and organic beauty gift inspiration for those of you on the lookout for ideas. I’ll be splitting things up into categories, starting with my favourite selection of budget friendly gifts, luxury gifts, a few gift ideas for the men in your life, gifts from small/independent businesses and last but not least, low-waste gift ideas. Before getting stuck in to the gift guide, I just want to mention that some of the links in this gift guide may be affiliate, which means if you choose to shop through my link I’ll receive a small commission (at absolutely no extra cost for you).

Low-waste/ Plastic-free Natural Gift Ideas
If you’ve read my Beginner’s Guide to Plastic-free Beauty you’ll know why it’s important to try choosing lower waste options more often. You most likely already know someone with an interest in more sustainable living, so these gift ideas would be a great choice for them or to introduce someone to low-waste product choices!

Low waste gift wrapping
Of course you could consider not wrapping presents at all, but part of the fun of gifting is the element of surprise. Ideally, you’ll want to choose something that’s re-usable or at the very least recyclable to wrap your gifts! Or you could opt for gift cards from LoveLula or Content Beauty to avoid the potential risk of an unwanted gift, so your giftee can choose their own products that they’ll actually use!
For the past couple of years I haven’t bought any wrapping paper and instead I make sure to collect any brown paper, sheets of tissue paper, small cardboard boxes and fabric scraps throughout the year to re-use for gifting. I personally love the look of a simple brown paper package and you can always spruce it up with twine and stamps with eco inks or even hand-drawn decorations. If you have little ones, decorating paper is a great activity to get them involved with and adds a more personal touch to your gifts!
I hope you’ve found this gift guide helpful and have found a few ideas for your list this year!
