Ok, we know not many people will be singing that but lots of us want to find the perfect unique gift that is going to wow it’s recipient, do we not? The great thing about an upcycled gift is that each gift is completely unique due to the little imperfections that come with age and wear, reminders of its previous life, whether a beer bottle or tea towel! We’ve put together a little gift guide to help you find that perfectly unique gift below, so grab a mug of mulled wine and let us help you get Christmas 2015 wrapped up.
These ace glasses are upcycled from old Cobra beer bottles and come packaged in a little eco friendly box ready to give the lucky recipient. Get a pair here.
This range of scented candles and diffusers can’t fail as a gift for the ladies on the christmas shopping list. The scents are reminiscent of mediterranean adventures, the wax is hand-poured into recycled wine bottles and finished with a stamped wooden lid. The diffusers come packaged in a beautiful wood veneer tube far too beautiful to need wrapping. See the range here (Pomegranate & Currant is particularly festive)
If jewellery is more her thing then this range of jewellery made from recycled musical instruments and vinyl records has to be a winner. We have the amp statement ring on our christmas lists! Check them out here.
For the home
If you have a budding interior designer to buy for these neutral statement cushions could be the answer. Made from french grain sacks stamped with the original branding. Shop them here.
For the little ones
We had to add a kids category this year after the latest and youngest Little Mill Houser’s birth this October. We love these upcycled rompers available in sizes 3-6 months right through to 4 years. They’re ace and there is a design must have for everyone, for us it was the Jurassic Park one which we can’t wait to get our hands on! They currently have a 15% off discount code too…tempting ey? Choose yours here.
For big kids
Another new category to our gift guide for 2015 but we couldn’t leave the bigger kids out now, could we? These cardboard animal heads are such fun for kids bedrooms and what makes them even more fun is that they come flat pack with instructions just like any puzzle. Rocky the Ram is always a favourite.
