Whatever the time of year, there is always the need to buy gifts. Friend’s and family’s birthdays, Christmas presents and other sundry occasions all require the presentation of a small keepsake. But finding that special gift can be tough, particularly when you don’t want to spend a fortune. But there are gift ideas around that don’t cost the earth, either in terms of money or their physical makeup:
If you love English retro and all things vintage-looking, then you will love the Juliette at Home Kitchen Garden Candle Range. These lovely hand-poured candles have been created using the finest of ingredients. With much of the work carried out by hand, they are made using scents provided by the top perfumeries. The pot is ceramic and reusable so you can easily reuse and recycle once your candle has burnt down. With scents such as Lemon Drizzle Cake, Fresh Cut Grass or Apple Crumble, when you give as a gift you are recreating the aromas of days gone by and time spent daydreaming in grandma’s kitchen.
Plastic lunch boxes can not only spoil the taste of food but buying plastic is becoming a no-go area. Instead of giving one as a gift, head to the designs modelled on the Indian-style tiffin boxes. Made from metal, they are easy to wash, won’t add an unpleasant odour to your food and can even be filled with hot foods. Originally used in India to carry tasty curries and rice, when given as a gift, you are giving something useful as well as earth-friendly.
Reusable water bottle
Throw out the plastic again and treat your friends and relatives to reusable water bottles made from metal or glass. They keep cold liquids pleasantly cool and are much more enjoyable to drink out of. Easy to wash and carry, stick to metal for your busy buddies and glass for the more genteel folk in your life. There are some great designs around so choose a model that suits with the receiver’s taste.
As you can see, gift ideas don’t need to break the bank nor do they need to be boring. The candle range from Juliette at Home is particularly attractive as everyone loves a candle. With so many special scents to choose from, each one evokes stunning memories of days gone by. If you are not sure which one to opt for, buy more than one and treat the receiver of the gift to a must-have candle collection. Able to be used in any room in the home, they are of the highest quality and very unusual.
Gift-giving doesn’t have to be about spending a whole lot of money or buying goods that are not eco-friendly. Instead focus on delightful presents that have been thoughtfully chosen and illustrative of your wish to buy items that are either recyclable or reusable, just like these special candle ceramic pots.
