Christmas is getting closer and closer and you might already be running out of stocking filler ideas. So we figured you guys might need a hand in finding something, that is both cheap and sustainable for stuffing those socks.
First of all, you can never go wrong with The Body Shop. They will always have something affordable and with oh so delicious smells, that makes you wonder when they are going to make their creams edible.
So if you are not into shopping smaller item from online we suggest you hop in to your nearest Body Shop store and go nuts. Here you can find anything you want whether you are looking for an ethical stocking filler for you girlfriend, boyfriend or teenage daughter.
When you buy any item from The Body Shop this Christmas, you support their school project where, they aim to build new schools for children in India, Nepal, Ghana and other places around the world. How can anybody turn that down?
You might already have given a few oranges as stocking fillers this December – but how about mixing it up with delicious Satsuma scented Bath time treats with the zesty Fair trade shower gel and body puree from Body shop. The Body Shop has created a little gift set box with the 2 items which also includes a Mini Crinkle Lily – so really it is tree days of stocking fillers in 1 go.
This Christmas, The Body Shop has also launched the cutest ethical Reindeer washball that can make bathtime fun for both kids and adults. No one enjoys stripping down to their birthday suit when it is winter, but this Body Shop reindeer wash ball will make showering a Christmas fun experience.
A classic stocking filler that is hard not to bring joy to the receiver will always be chocolate.
Devine is the only Fairtrade chocolate company where 45% of the company is owned by the cocoa bean farmers and this Christmas they have created ethical chocolate Christmas trees which no one will be able to keep their hands from.
If your children are getting tired of getting chocolate and oranges in their sock by now, you might want to consider these cool recycled rocket lolly makers from The Ethical Superstore which will help teach your children how to make homemade ice cream and teach them patience – because they will have to wait a few hours from making the lollies and until they are frozen. And you can have fun seeing them run to the freezer every 5 minutes to check if the lollies are ready to devour.
Last week we ran a competition from our Facebook page with Booja Booja vegan chocolate company giving you lovelies the chance to win a Beyond Skin shopper bag and a pack of Booja Booja Champagne truffles.
If you were not one of the lucky winners fret not, Booja Booja is both ethical, delicious and affordable! Perfect for an ethical stocking filler.
Give a woman or girl an ethical stocking filler she might not be expecting – jewellery!
All the present do not need to be edible or fun. They can be beautiful as well.
The jewellery company Just Trade have created this pair of textured brass earrings, which are hand made in Just Trades Flowering Desert Project in India.
The Flowering Desert Project is a jewellery workshop in Tamil Nadu, India where 18 women work to handcraft these gorgeous Trade fair jewellery. The project provides work, fair pay and lifts to and from work for the workers. Affordable ethical jewellery which also is beautiful. Yay!
If you are not yet one of our fabulous Beyond Skin Facebook followers you are missing out on great opportunities to win amazing Ethical products. This week we have teamed up with the ethical Skincare company JASON for you to have the chance to win JASON rosewater body lotion, or cocoa moisturising creme, PLUS a fairtrade Beyond Skin shopper bag each.
But if you can not wait until Monday to find out if you have won, JASON also makes a great stocking filler due to their super affordable prices.
A perfect little treasure for the stockings we suggest would be this Organic Aloe Vera oil which gives great moisturising relief for dry winter damaged skin. Or dry skin in general really. It’s just amazing, is what we are trying to tell you.
If you have any tips and tricks for us about ethical stocking fillers – such as, if you got all your stocking fillers from the local second hand store or if you know of an ethical company we should know about, feel free to leave us a comment.
