CELEBRATE A GREEN CHRISTMAS: YOUR ULTIMATE GUIDE TO ECO-FRIENDLY GIFTING THIS YEAR
By adopting eco-friendly practices over Christmas, you’ll create truly memorable moments. This month’s guide will show you how to celebrate Christmas in a happy and environmentally friendly way, with eco-friendly gifts, waste-free parties, and green decorations that not only illuminate your home but also help the environment.
HOW CAN WE BE ECO-FRIENDLY AT CHRISTMAS?
Making careful choices is the first step towards embracing a green Christmas. To cut down on physical waste, choose presents made of eco-friendly materials, support local artists and artisans, and think about giving experiences instead. Reduce the need for single-use plastics when wrapping your presents by selecting reusable wrapping materials like cloth furoshiki wraps or recycled paper.
WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON GIFTS AT CHRISTMAS?
When it comes to Christmas shopping most people, I know have chosen to start early this year. Not only to spread the cost of Christmas but also to ensure they choose gifts that are meaningful and memorable rather than rushing.
Self-care products, skincare and toothbrushes are among the most common Christmas presents. So, this year I have put together some wonderful Green Gift Sets to share with you all.
DON’T FORGET THE KIDS!
The joy of giving and receiving presents is at the heart of most people’s Christmas. Alongside spending time with your loved ones, presents play a big part to the day within the UK. Families have a variety of traditions, and one that is gaining popularity is the “4 gift Christmas rule.” This guideline makes gift-giving easier with thoughtful gifts and prevents gifting excessively. The idea is to give each child something they want, something they need, something to wear, and something to read. This approach promotes careful gift choices, gratitude, and an appreciation of the true spirit of Christmas.
ECO EM’S CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE
I started Eco Ems to encourage people to gift green. I thought there must be a much better option than the plastic heavy, overly packaged gift sets you see throughout the high street. And I set about making a change, by collaborating with other small UK-based businesses to bring beautifully crafted gifts that are vegan-friendly, plastic-free, low tox, zero waste and perfect for those who love simple skincare.
Botanics by Eco Ems was born and three Christmases later we’re still going strong. I’ve added some beautiful scents and gifts for £10 or less to the website this year. You don’t need to worry about greenwashing with anything you buy from Eco Ems. As I have been scrupulous with my supply chain, I’ve ensured all the products have been handmade and travelled minimal miles!
With that said let me show you some of my favourites….
How many times have you searched “Secret Santa Gifts for under £10” well this is the one for you. The soaps are one of your all-time favourites. They were added to the collection last year, and they have since become essential in your bathroom since.
Pick between one of the classic scents or one of the Christmas additions. The soap is available in a half-size that is ideal for our sisal bags. Your skin will be gently exfoliated and become silky to the touch. Ideal for removing dead skin cells before shaving and getting dressed up for the Christmas party!

SOAP & SUDS
Our Soaps & Suds Gift Set offers the ideal trio of all-natural self-care products. This bundle, which includes a lovingly chosen bath bomb, handcrafted soap, and a bamboo flannel, was created for pampering your skin. Bringing together all our top-selling products in one set, pick your favourite essential oils to ease aches and pains or help relax you after a chaotic Christmas Day.
This present is perfect for those who adore one scent and can benefit from the bath bomb and soap in their favourite essential oil. You can pick this lovely gift up on the website for only £11.50 – grab yours now
Face the Music
I created this gift box after a long bath and an evening of pampering. I use these products daily and they have transformed my skin into a beautiful glow, bringing back the hydration it so badly needed.
A simple but effective skincare regime in one box with the Face the Music Gift Set. Simply wash off the cleanser with a super soft bamboo flannel, use the reusable facial pads around delicate areas like the eyes, and hydrate the skin with our day and night face cream. Several bathroom products can be replaced with a straightforward skincare routine. Reduce the amount of packaging that comes with it as a result. The entire set is suitable for vegans, contains no plastic, is free from palm oil, and all of the packaging can be recycled or composted at home.
