Right On Gifts That Will Make Everyone Feel Good

This year we’re making a conscious effort to gift as many things as we can that help reduce waste, are homegrown and/or minimise exposure to chemicals. Happily, noble aims and proper treats are far from mutually exclusive- there’s much to love and share that will make the most discerning givers and receivers feel good deep down.

First up, from Ali Hewson’s pitch-perfect ethical fashion brand, Edun- the drop dead macrame clutch, $350.

 

 

Next, no cables, no plugs, just physics at work. A simple wooden amplifier boosts sound from any mobile phone pretty impressively (and with the added bonus that you can fling it on the fire for warmth come the Apocalypse), $99,  Trobla.

 

 

Re-usable, natural beeswax wrap means no more cling film and pretties up the fridge (lots of plain and patterned motifs -including available). While we wouldn’t want this as our main gift, it’s a great host present or stocking stuffer. Wrap some home made treats in it for max impact.  Pack of two medium, two small, 20stg.

 

Luxury skincare brand Pai is a real treat for anyone who wants to indulge their skin in a chemical-free routine. Facial oil, €28, Nourish.

 

 

 

We are obsessed with the organic, dairy-free, gluten-free, soya-free miracles that are Booja Booja truffles. Two packs are nice, six packs are nicer and bumper boxes best of all. Find a selection at Nourish or order this special edition artist box, 19.99 stg

Give the gift of year-round wildlife (or welcome it into your own perch) with a willow bird feeder hand-made on these shores, €35 at The Irish Design Shop.
