It may sound a little cliché, but one of the reasons I absolutely love the Christmas period is the joy I get from gift giving. This year is particularly special because it gives me the opportunity to reach out to the loved ones who I haven’t seen as much as I would have liked, and the chance to thank those who have helped me through some pretty tough months.
This year my Christmas shopping list is a little longer than the previous year as I have so many people I want to thank, show my love to, and so many new bonds and friendships that I have developed over the last year. My neighbours who went out of their way to deliver food when I was unable to leave the house, my postie who kept delivering whilst we were all off work and the teachers who kept motivation and morale high during lockdown.
This Christmas is going to be quite different than what we are used to, but in a special way it is rewinding time and making this time of year all about family, love and reconnecting through small tokens of appreciation.
This is why we, here at Scentered, have created a range of Christmas Gifts that are designed to give your loved ones, new friends, old friends and neighbours the gift of ‘me-time’. Gosh knows, we all need it! However, we also believe that our own well-being shouldn’t come at the cost of our planet’s, which is why each of our products is created with sustainability and reusability in mind.

Sustainable Christmas Gift Ideas
Christmas Stocking Balms
Our Christmas Stocking balms are the same great balms you know and love, but festively themed in a cheerful felt embroidered stocking. Made from waste felt, these stockings can be reused year on year to decorate your tree, or for gifting as part of your advent countdown. I love to take out the balm (they are too good to leave on the tree!) and fill mine with small chocolates before hanging them around the house.
Alternatively, if you can part with your Christmas Balm Stocking’s you can present them as thoughtful tokens to your loved ones. Do you know someone who needs a restful night’s sleep this Christmas period? Or someone who would love an uplifting pick-me-up? Or the chance to unwind? Our adorable Christmas stockings come in SLEEP WELL, DE-STRESS and HAPPY so you can do all your presents in one fell swoop whilst still making each gift thoughtful, personalised and perfect for a sustainable Christmas gift.
Christmas Wellbeing Ritual Aromatherapy Baubles
Our Wellbeing Ritual Aromatherapy Balm Bauble is another reusable, sustainable and thoughtful gift that can help you or your loved ones through the new year. Our 100% oil based Aromatherapy Balms are housed in a high-quality and festive metal Bauble that is consistent with our eco-conscious values in reducing unnecessary packaging, whilst promoting creative reusability, available in ESCAPE, LOVE, SLEEP WELL and DE-STRESS.
Our customers have found some fabulous uses for our Baubles including sustainable Christmas decorations, to hold sweets, crafts or even in the garden as ornaments. I love to see how you reuse OUR packaging and inspire others with your creative reusability. If you find yourself getting craft with our packaging, please feel free to tag us in your Instagram pictures so we can see your festive creations! Alternatively if you are looking for a bit of inspiration to get your kick-started, you can read our ‘Creative Reusability’ page about how we here at Scentered are always looking to reuse and recycle.
