Little Mission ~ The Christmas Gift Edit

4 December, 2023 | Lifestyle, Organisation

This Little Mission, The Christmas Gift Edit, I hope will bring you those gift solutions for the special people in your life, without breaking the bank or hurting the planet. I try and support small businesses as much as possible, so I hope this Gift Edit will introduce you to some brands you’ve not met before and that you’ll love as much as I do too.

Ready? Grab a cuppa, a mince pie and let’s dive in!

Gifts For Your Coffee Lover

Your coffee lover will always enjoy an introduction to a new coffee or a brand new mug. Of course if you’re feeling really generous, the De’Longhi coffee maker is currently on offer. Whether it’s your best friend, work colleague or family member a coffee lover can never have enough mugs or coffee!

Gifts For your Foodie or just because

I love The Kitch Hen and have been a customer for a few years now. Caroline makes the most perfect edible gifts for those who need a little hug from afar, a well done, congratulations, a thank you and the perfect host gift too. I especially love the new Christmas collection, perfect for this Christmas gift Edit, and adore the Robyn design and the Christmas Eve Treat is brand new for this season, isn’t it fabulous?

Gifts For Wellbeing

Despite the fact we know we should look after ourselves better and make time to relax in this ever busy world, gifts for well-being really are such a treat. I’ve been a lover of Hoof and Paw Candles for years. The Christmas Candle is a yearly ritual (sorry now sold out but put a note in your diary for next year!) The Amethyst Crystal Candle is always burning when I’m working. Madeline at Hoof and Paws has recently launched a brand new range, the Chaka Collection which I know will be amazing. I have ordered the Intuition Candle ready for 2024 and can’t wait to light it. I know you’ll love these candles, they are the perfect table gift or gift for your host as well as your friends and family who adore candles and feeling good. .

Hoof and Paw

What’s better that to aid your wellbeing than with a fabulous good nights sleep? You will love these gorgeous eye masks that gently warm up once they are placed over your eyes, banishing tension and helping you to let go of the stresses of the day, simply sit back and relax!

The masks contain iron powder which allows them to warm up once they are out of the pouch. Each pack contains 5 silky smooth single use masks. You could give the whole box or gift one face mask with other items, making a little gift package. Maybe a lip balm and chocolates or whatever you wish. There is currently a special offer on until December 19th, buy 5 boxes and receive one free, valid when ordering the blue jasmine boxes only. Maybe keep a box for you, you deserve it!

This 7 day pill case from Tabuu has a separate compartment for every day each holding up to 14 500mg paracetamol caplets and labelled with the day of the week to help keep things organized. It has a mirror built in so it’s one less thing to throw in your bag.

Each individual lid compartment is removable so it’s nice and easy to keep clean and cases are around the size of a smart phone so slip easily into coat pockets or bags! Love mine for when I’m travelling.

Gifts For Your Outdoor Lover

For the 2nd year in a row, Go Outdoors have partnered with the mental health charity, Mind, for Hats on For Mind. Last year, they raised over £233,000 for Mind and raise awareness of the impact spending time in the outdoors can have on your mental well-being. This year we have new ambassador hat designs and all new ambassador flasks. What a perfect gift whilst, let’s get our hats on for Mind! 

You know I love getting outside and walking on the SW coast path and Dartmoor and hope one of these might find its way under the tree with my name on! Aren’t they gorgeous? x

Gifts For Your Garden Lover

The Blog is about finding the little gifts for the people you love without breaking their bank and preferably from a small business. These aged terracotta look planters tick that box! Fill with compost and spring bulbs, or flowering white narcissi, add a ribbon and your garden lover has a pot to keep for a lifetime and flowers they can enjoy too.

The Gardeners Handbook is a gift I’ve bought for a few of my Gardening friends and they’ve been really well received. The fabric covered gardening book is designed to last the great outdoors. Mark tips with the ribbon, write your to do list & stick photos on the recycled pages. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned gardener, journal your veg & garden plants with this organiser. Record seeds planted, growth & the garden tools use with this notebook

Gifts For Your Interiors Lover

If you follow me on instagram and read previous blogs, you’ll know I adore CharlesTed Interiors and have many pieces in my home. First establish in 2017, their mission is to help people create a more effortlessly stylish home with simple key pieces and to this day and we won’t ever stock anything they wouldn’t have in their own homes. I’ve shared three pieces which I adore and think you or your Interiors Lover will adore too.

Country Abodes is a country boutique offering unique luxury home ware and accessories. The quintessentially British collection includes roman blinds, curtains, cushions and lampshades,  hand made from the most beautiful fabrics. They also offer a bespoke service for those who are after that extra special something, made to your own unique theme.  I think you’ll agree, they really do Christmas very well!

I love a practical gift and these jars are a two in one type of gift. They are really reasonable at around the £3 mark, fill them with whatever you like, chocolates or bath salts, for example and they can be enjoyed long after the Christmas tree decorations have been taken down.

The Festive Candle from The Range is a perfect White Company dupe. Again it retails at around the £3 mark so won’t break the bank . It’s perfect for any “just in case gifts” for surprise visitors.
