It’s that time of year again when the weather gets cooler, carols start playing and we turn our attention to that festive time of year. In these difficult times, as we begin to think of Christmas gifting, it is more important than ever to shop small and support independent businesses where you can.

If you’re thinking of gifting natural beauty to friends and loved ones this year – or maybe treating yourself to a little festive cheer – then this guide is the one for you.

I’ve rounded up some of my favourite picks for giving the gift of green beauty this year, with options for every budget under £40. I feel the £40 budget is a great way to showcase that shopping independent doesn’t have to cost a huge amount, and that these budget-friendly gifts will still have a big impact upon friends and loved ones who will be lucky to receive them. So whether you’re looking for stocking fillers and secret Santa gifts, or that special gift for the beauty enthusiast in your life, these will certainly make someone smile come Christmas morning…

Olee Cosmetics: Mini Whipped Soap (Set 4) – £8.00

The trio of mini whipped soaps will not only make a great secret Santa gift for any age but is also a lovely way of exploring the brand for the very first time.

You could also use each tin individually as stocking fillers or as cracker gifts if you like to make your own. What I love in particular about Olee Cosmetic Whipped Soaps is how versatile they are, as they can be used as a soap, bubble bath or shaving product and they have the added bonus of being suitable for even sensitive skin. The Set 4 scents truly encompass the aromas of the festive season, containing Festive Cheer (ripened figs and snowberries), Santa’s Baby (almonds, red berries, citrus and peppermint) and Festive Spice (orange, nutmeg, cinnamon, rose and clove).
