    It’s been a while since I’ve put together a gifting guide but I wanted to do one ready for this Christmas that is suitable for both eco friendly and travel lovers that you can pick up last minute if you’re short of ideas or running out of time before the big day. Do you need help gifting for travel lovers and those who want to help save the planet? Look no further than my gifting guide for some ideas.

    7 MUST HAVE GIFTS TO BUY // LAST MINUTE GIFTING FOR TRAVEL LOVERS

    ECO FRIENDLY TOOTHBRUSH

    I have been loving my TioCare toothbrush* which is made from recycled materials and plant biopolymers, instead of using a plastic toothbrush that gets chucked away every 6 weeks. I love this toothbrush because it’s made from recycled materials but also because you can switch the brush head once it’s been worn down to save the waste that gets chucked away and it gets recycled down into the ground. Their toothbrushes come in 4 different colours and the bristles come in 2 firmness choices, either soft or medium as well as coming with a travel protection case and you can also purchase 2 replacement heads seperately.

    REUSEABLE BEAUTY PRODUCTS

    When you are travelling and need to keep your beauty regime up it’s quite hard when not many products are eco friendly. But when you find the right products it really does help you and the planet at the same time. I love using the LUSH Shampoo & Conditioner bars when travelling without lugging my bottles with me that take up room in my washbag as well as harming the planet. I keep them in their metal tins when travelling and they last so long as well as keeping my hair clean, hydrated and soft.

    I also love using the bamboo cotton buds and washable face rounds that I found on Amazon. They save me throwing away plastic cotton buds and the cotton rounds that you only use once. These you can put in the wash after several uses to keep them clean.

    COMPOSTABLE PHONE CASE

    Switching my phone case from a plastic one to a recycled material one was the best thing I ever did. It has protected my phone so wel from bumps and drops and it also makes me feel better knowing every time I use my phone, I’m helping clean the oceans of plastic and reduce the amount of plastic phone cases that get thrown away every year.

    RECYCLED MATERIAL TSA APPROVED WASH BAG

    This is now my favourite wash bag to take with me when I go travelling. I love that it’s made from recycled materials and also TSA approved for airports but it also has so many pockets and storage solutions as well as a removable liquids bag for airport security and a hidden hanging hook so you can hang it up in the bathroom or shower.

    OneNine5 currently have only grey liquid bottles available, but other colours will be released in Spring 2020. Stay tuned for a collaboration.

    METAL STRAWS

    I’m trying to stop the use of plastic straws and I hate the paper ones as they disintegrate after several sips, so I am now taking my metal straw with me everywhere to try and cut those down. Final Straw are an amazing company which I am ambassador for, who create metal straws in so many different colours and a percentage of each sale goes towards ocean clean up projects and protecting ocean wildlife that are affected by the amount of plastic waste that is washed up in the sea and on the beaches around use. The drinking straw comes with a cleaning rack and brush so you can clean and dry the straw easily.

    REUSABLE CUTLERY SETS

    If your loved one loves camping or hiking and needs a new cutlery set and lunch box, make sure you pick them up a lovely reusable cutlery set that’s either bamboo or metal. I prefer the metal sets as they are easier to clean and come in lovely colours especially the rainbow oil slick coloured ones.

    If your loved one is travelling around Asia, why not pick them up a set of reusable chop sticks. I love using my training chop sticks as I am absolutely useless at trying to use proper chop sticks, plus I can wash them after every use.

    BEACH TOWELS

    I wanted to buy an eco friendly beach towel that will last a long time and that will also dry quickly and will be easy to shake off the sand. I hate it when you always end up bringing sand home with you and it ruins things.

    METAL WATER BOTTLES

    There is nothing better than bringing your metal water bottle around with you on travels and getting it filled up for free as well as not wasting an unecessary amount of plastic bottles. I love the bottles from Chillys as they come in so many different patterns and colours but there are so many different bottles around. Metal bottles can keep your drink cold for 24 hours and hot/warm for 12 hours so it’s perfect for everyday use or long days out on trips and exploring.

    Chillys currently have a 10% off Black Friday deal with BLACKFRIDAY10 until 2nd December.
