Eco-Friendly Gifts For Christmas

Shaped Puzzles

I got my love of jigsaw puzzles from my mum. When we were kids, we used to help mum on the kitchen table figure out these enormous jigsaw puzzles! It’s a fantastic relaxing hobby. One thing I have never tried is a shaped puzzle like this gorgeous Festive Toy Shop one from Wentworth Wooden Puzzles. It’s a 240 piece count puzzle with colourful intricate shapes. The wood used is derived from sustainable sources and handmade in Wiltshire. It would make a stunning Christmas gift to treasure.

Family Christmas Decoration Candle

I love the engraved house illustration on this family candle. You can personalise it with your family name and individual family member names. As the scented natural soy wax burns down the candlelight will glow through the engraving. The wax will burn for up to 40 hours and you can choose your own scent from 12 options. I chose orange and cinnamon for a gorgeous Christmas smell. The candles are hand-poured and jars are recyclable.

The Blue Planet II

With a foreword from Sir David Attenborough, The Blue Planet II is full of the incredible stories we first watched in the landmark BBC Blue Planet II TV series, reimagined and brought to life with stunning illustrations, alongside exciting facts and surprises. 

Did you know that 71% of the Earth is covered by ocean? Or that the Atolla jellyfish has a built-in burglar alarm that flashes lights when under attack?  Or even that there is a kelp dwelling Weedy Sea Dragon who is a master of disguise?

This book is visually stunning, full of facts and information. It would make a beautiful Christmas gift for adults or children. I have been looking through it with my daughter who loves learning about our planet. I particularly like how it looks into the effects of climate change and how we are altering our Blue Planet at a faster rate than ever before.

It celebrates some of the conservationist heroes who are dedicated to safeguarding our seas and offers suggestions of how everyone, whatever age, can get involved to help protect our blue spaces.

Available to buy from *Amazon – released 5th November
