Sustainable Sentiment: Reusable Shopping Bag

This is a handy gift that has a lot of heart behind it. We love Kind’s sustainable shopping bags not just because of their stunning designs, but because every single one is made from 100% recycled bottles. It’s a useful, low-cost gift that would work well as a Secret Santa present or stocking filler.

 The Gift that Keeps on Giving: A Cheese Subscription

Food subscriptions bring joy to the recipient long after you’ve presented your gift, and there are so many brilliant food and drink subscriptions on offer these days. You can have pretty much anything delivered straight to your door, from artisan cheeses to curry-making kits, coffee, wine and beer! Our favourite is this one at Paxton’s; simply purchase their bronze, silver, gold or platinum cheese club package as a gift, and receive an ever-changing selection of artisan cheeses, along with biscuits and tasting notes cards.
