Ethical gifts UK
Before we delve into our top 5 eco-friendly Christmas gift ideas, let's talk about why Bloom In Soap makes the perfect choice when gifting eco-friendly Christmas presents. Our dedication to ethics and sustainability is the beating heart of our brand: in addition to supporting a women-led fair trade initiative in Ghana, we use wildflower seed plantable labels across our range of products. To leave a positive impact on the planet, our plantable labels are produced using paper impregnated with over 20 varieties of UK native wildflower seeds. Made at an artisan paper mill in the UK and printed by a small UK business, you can plant our labels directly into the ground or in a pot to grow wildflowers, it really is that easy! Not only does this make our packaging 100% biodegradable, it also leaves the lasting gift of wildflowers to support our eco system and to attract pollinating insects to thrive and flourish. You'll find plantable labels across our range of natural skincare, from our natural soaps to our shampoo bars, natural body butters, hand cream, and aromatherapy candles.

Christmas eco gifts: Wellbeing Gifts
Bloom In Soap's products go beyond just natural skincare; we offer aromatherapy candles to gift a sense of wellbeing. Providing a soothing, sensory experience, our candle with lavender essential oil - Soothe My Soul - is made with plant-based wax and natural essential oils to promote wellbeing and offer your loved ones a sense of calm and solitude. A powerhouse oil for relieving stress and soothing the soul, the entrancing lavender scent will help them drift away to their peaceful, tranquil haven. Our Ginger Lily & Ylang-Ylang aromatherapy candle will nurture their wellbeing with its heady, exotic aroma, and help them retreat to a safe, quiet state of mind. Both of our aromatherapy candle wellbeing gifts are available gift boxed and finished with dried flowers and satin ribbon.
Our range of festive natural soaps are all made with fair trade shea butter which we source directly from a women-led co-op in Ghana. With every soap bar purchased from Bloom In Soap, you are empowering this small co-op of 54 Ghanaian women to demand a fair price for their hand-churned shea butter and as a result, helping to safeguard their income. Shea producers frequently face exploitation, as they receive substantially lower compensation for their products compared to the actual market value, often at just 40% of what buyers are willing to pay. The quality of shea butter can vary significantly, and shea producers often struggle to make informed comparisons, leaving them unable to get paid what their product is actually worth. That's why it's so important to support fair trade when you can, and raw shea butter offers so many amazing skin benefits when used in natural soaps.
Raw shea butter is a rich source of natural glycerides, making it a superb ingredient for crafting natural soaps. With its abundant glycerin content, which acts as a natural humectant to draw moisture into the skin, shea butter effectively maintains skin hydration, leaving it deeply moisturised, soft, and velvety smooth. Tree Hugger, Cinnamon Spice, Fresh Snow and Winter's Kiss natural soaps are made with this amazing ingredient, and when you purchase our shea butter soaps we are able to play a small part in empowering this group of women to lead abundant lives, together.
Best eco gifts that can be reused: Furoshiki
Furoshiki fabric gift wrap is not only a sustainable and eco-friendly choice for wrapping gifts, but can also be reused and repurposed. Once a gift is unwrapped, the furoshiki fabric can be repurposed in various creative ways: it can be used as a scarf, a table napkin, a hanky, or even a trendy headband. You can even use it as an eco-conscious alternative to traditional gift wrap for future occasions. Their durability and gorgeous designs make furoshiki the perfect choice for reducing waste and adding a touch of luxury to daily life, and just goes to prove how one small piece of fabric can have a lasting impact, both on the recipient of the gift, and on our planet.
