Christmas Gift Ideas
December has come around again and the count down is on. Whether you’re in a festive frenzy or playing it white Christmas cool, we’ve put together the perfect list of Christmas gift ideas that are useful, sustainable, consumable or just plain beautiful. Scroll on for inspiration…..
Treat Republic sell personalised gifts and we love this ceramic eco cup. Not only can you add a name but a definition too making it a lovely Christmas gift for your best friend. Re-usable cups reduce plastic waste so it’s a gift to the planet too!
Everpress is a T-shirt printing company for independent creatives. Artists upload their designs and Everpress print them onto high quality garments. The T-shirt will only go to print if more than five pieces are ordered thus avoiding surplus and waste. There are loads of fabulous, original designs to choose from and literally a T-shirt for everyone but they do make an exceptionally good gift for teenagers.
Bookshop.org is an online bookshop with a mission to financially support local, independent bookshops and at SWHQ we are getting behind that! You can either choose a local bookshop to support from their online map and they’ll receive 30% of the cover price, or otherwise, 10% of the cover price goes into a pool which is then distributed among all participating stores. Titles are helpfully arranged into categories so it’s easy to navigate the online shop. Browse anything from Booker Prize titles and Food & Drink to Self-Help and YA authors. A good book, especially a hardback, is the perfect Christmas gift idea for friends.
The increased amount of time we’ve been spending at home has seen a rise in the popularity of the comfy house shoe and an elegant pair of Salt-Water Slides makes a great gift idea for your girlfriend. The Classic Slide is a comfortable, chic sandal that’s easy to slip on and off and comes in several gorgeous colours. They work equally well as a beach shoe in summer as they do for working from home with a pair of cosy cashmere socks in the depths of winter.
For particularly tricky customers, you can’t go wrong with consumables. Souschef is the place to be for foodies with a selection of ingredients and tableware inspired by the world’s best kitchens. We love this handsome panettone which could be eaten fresh and dipped in hot chocolate or cooked later into a comforting bread and butter pudding. An excellent Christmas gift idea for your mum or mother-in-law.
