This year, we encourage you to give gifts that truly come from the heart - gifts that are kind to the planet. As a rule of thumb, try to only give gifts that are handmade, upcycled, zero-waste, eco-friendly, edible or second-hand. Give vouchers for delicious bulk foods, body treatments like massages or natural facials or experiences like food festivals, shows or events. If you really want to give a tangible gift, give a well-thought-out gift or something someone really needs. Here, we share our six favourite zero-waste gift ideas perfect for the hard to buy for.
  • Homemade Spice Blends

     

    Does someone in your life love your famous tacos? Why not pass on your secret recipe and make them a few spice jars as a gift?

  • Homemade Buckwheat and Lavender Eye Pillow

     

    This gorgeous Christmas gift idea is perfect for your yoga-loving best friend or partner who needs to bring a little more ease and calm into their life. Simply cut/sew together a rectangle of any spare fabric you might have at home and fill it with some organic raw buckwheat and organic dried aromatics such as lavender flowers, chamomile or wild mint.

  • Festive Sweets Jar

     

    Head into your local The Source Bulk Foods with a few spare jars and fill them with your loved one’s favourite selection of chocolates and sweets. If your loved one is more of a health enthusiast, combine layers of dried fruit, protein balls and coated nuts (the honey roasted cashews and cinnamon roasted crunch almonds are divine!) in a jar or in one of our glass kombucha bottles which they can reuse. Remember to hide the goodies at the back of the pantry so they’re not all gone before Christmas day!

  • DIY Tea Collection

     

    Does your mum or work colleague love tea? Why not create your very own indulgent tea collection? Include an assortment of their favourite tea blends (or, better yet, make your own herbal blends) such as Chamomile Flowers, Dandelion Chai, Australian Sencha Green Tea, Herbal Billy Strawberry Gum Tea and Liquorice Star Tea. Pick up a beautiful second-hand teapot and some teacups and give the gift of nourishment this Christmas.

  • Pamper Gifts

    Lavender and Mint Soak

    Visit your local The Source Bulk Foods and pick up the below ingredients to create a stress-relieving and soothing Lavender Mint Soak, perfect for those who need it the most!

    2 cups (425g) Epsom salts
    ½ cup (105g) organic bi-carb soda
    20g organic lavender flowers
    20g wild mint
    2 tbsp organic raw coconut oil or organic hemp oil

    Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Store in an air-tight jar, wrap some material or twine around the lid and gift to your loved one.

    The best thing about making your DIY homemade gift is that you can make a little extra for yourself!

    If you don’t have the time to DIY check out your local store for already made bath soaks in a jar. Don’t forget to pick up one of our aromatic Rose and Pink Clay or Lavender and Clay Soap (just to name a few!) bars to complete the gift. These quality soaps are free of palm oil, animal products, preservatives and artificial additives.
