Fresh flowers are a real treat and make not only the home look nice but can also make someone feel good too. Gifting one of The Real Flower Company's beautiful bouquets at Christmas is a very special thing to do. They make wonderful Christmas gifts and also very special “ thank you for having us” gifts as well.

The Real Flower Company grow their own flowers on their farm in the South Downs and strive to promote provenance and sustainability. Unlike so many roses you can buy, the roses from The Real Flower Company are actually scented!? Isn’t it strange when we receive flowers we automatically go to smell them and it’s always so disappointing when they don’t smell at all. The Real Flower Company have changed all of that and have worked extremely hard over the years to grow the world's finest SCENTED ROSES and the smell of them as you walk into the room is just exquisite!

Growing their own tree? Nature lovers and green fingered friends will love it. Starting from scratch, the box contains four packets of mixed Bonsai seeds, five starter growing pots made from coconut husk (you're welcome, planet), and five natural coconut husk compost discs which expand when watered.

This is just a super gift for all those green fingered people out there. GROW IT Bonsai trees! Everything you need to get started growing , just add water !

We are MASSIVE fans of TANGLE. The passion of two friends both dog lovers, who’s drive to stop the heart-breaking impact on the environment of old fishing nets (ghost nets) being dumped at sea have devised a way to encourage fishers to exchange their old nets at ports. The old nets are then put through a process that turns them into 100 % recycled green pellets ready to make into new products. TANGLE produces the most fabulous sustainable high quality dog products we have ever come across. We love love love the dog bowls and the leads as they are beautifully made. They also make a throw toy too!. If you would like to know more and get your four legged friend a beautiful Christmas gift, hop over to the Tangle website, you will definitely be inspired!

Big or small, there’s nothing more festive than a tree at Christmas! So why not sponsor a tree for your friends and family (or that secret Santa you’re stuck on) rather than buying them another pair of socks.
