Some items have been gifted for this post.
Every year we have no idea what to buy someone, trust me I’ve been in that position so many times. This is why I put together this gift guide so that people can find something to get someone so much easier!
Pulsin Nutrition – Protein Bars
Please believe me when I tell you I am in love with these protein bars and if I could I would spend my entire life savings on these. I’ve tried some terrible protein bars in the past and I can happily say these aren’t one of them. They taste amazing, I’ve had to stop my husband from getting his hands on them and I’m going to be buying some for my gym obsessed sister for Christmas!
A little bit of information about the protein bars. They’re vegan, gluten free and contain no artificial ingredients at all! That means you can enjoy them and not feel guilty about destroying the planet; which is one thing you don’t get from other protein bars. If you know someone who loves protein bars as much as I now do, get them Pulsin!
You know I love Playin Choc, it’s one of my favourite chocolates out there for several reasons. To begin with, it doesn’t make me unwell because it doesn’t contain dairy and I can only handle small amounts. In fact, they are dairy-free, nut-free, gluten-free and plastic-free. They avoid using 14 allergens in total! So if you ever find it difficult to find chocolate you or someone can enjoy, now you don’t need to spend hours searching.
If you know someone who has children who can’t have dairy, nuts, gluten etc. These chocolates are the thing they deserve for Christmas! I’d also like to highlight the sustainable and recyclable packaging they use with all their chocolate. I really can’t say enough about this amazing company and their chocolate, other than if any of my family or friends are reading this I want some for Christmas!
If it’s good enough for The Great British Bake Off, it’s good enough for you! I love Opies so much it’s unreal. I use them in all my baking when I can and their food just gives all my bakes flavour that’s out of this world. There are so many options with Opies so you’re spoilt for choice.
Personally, I love making something with my Opies foods and then giving out all the sweet treats I make to give someone a smile around Christmas time. That being said, you can also gift a baker in your life some amazing jars from the Opies range and maybe they’ll bake you something delicious as a thank you. Go on, spoil someone this year with Opies!
Neitiv Coconut Beer
Fancy some healthier and better for the environment beer this Christmas? Let’s face it, 80% of brits love a drink at Christmas and if you’re one of them, you need to try this Neitiv beer out! First off, the bottles are amazing and they’re super easy to open. You may have seen them on Dragons Den where they got quite the praise, they’re just that good.
There are so many reasons why I love this Neitiv beer, one of them being the red dot project. You can free sanitary pads with your order and coming from a family where being a guy is a rare thing, I know that sanitary pads are always needed and expensive! So get a loved one some Neitiv beer this Christmas, support a great company and protect our planet that little bit more.
Four Twentea – The Calming CBD Tea
So since moving to Manchester the universe has tested me and I’ve been drinking a lot of tea, it’s not all that great though so I’ve been through my share of various brands. I just wanted something to calm me down a little when times are stressful and I’m so glad I found Four Twentea! Their mintea flavour is just the thing I need to relax me!
If you’re like me and need to chill out a little and relax, these teas are for you! Maybe you have a friend who needs to slow down for once in their life. It doesn’t matter who you have in mind for this tea, they’re going to love it! It’s also super affordable compared to other teas on the market, their packaging is 100% recyclable and they’re just the thing needed for a little bit of calm!
Osho Good Chocolate
So I love chocolate and I don’t think that’s ever going to change. Chocolate, however, does not love me. Ohso chocolate is created a little differently, known as the good chocolate it’s actually helping your body and isn’t just empty yummy calories! I love Ohso for many reasons but their individual bars are one of the reasons why, they’re portioned out and great for lunches!
If you know someone who loves chocolate as much as me or maybe a parent who needs some healthier treats for their children, give them Ohso for Christmas and introduce them to a whole new world of tasty chocolate with added live cultures to help us out instead of just making us fat!
Lustre Cream Liqueurs
Baileys who? If you’re looking for a more eco, tastier and dairy-free alternative to Baileys, you’ve found it! Lustre drinks are the bomb! I’ve already got several recipes I’m going to use them in and I can hand on heart say they taste amazing because both my partner and myself have tried them.
These plant-based cream liqueurs make the perfect gift. I would, however, suggest that if you’re gifting them to someone, get them all three bottles so they can try the whole range! You can get them from their website or if you prefer you can buy them on Amazon, it’s up to you! Either way, you or your loved one is going to love them!
Bensons The Juicers Goodies!!
Bensons The juicers have to be one of my new favourite juicers, they make lollies as well! Their Chilly Billy lollies are amazing and I’m sitting here eating them in the winter when I’m resisting putting the heating on, so that says something! Their Joosed Fizz drinks are also very nice. No added sugars, flavourings or colours, all natural flavours. They use Infinitely recyclable aluminium cans and are the perfect replacement for nasty fizzy drinks.
I’m not sure if you’d want to get someone these for Christmas, however, you will want to have loads at the ready on Christmas day because people will be getting thirsty. I suggest getting yours now so you don’t have to worry about them arriving in time for Christmas!
Purely Chips – YUM!!
These are also the perfect snack for Christmas day. You know that period when you want something to eat but you’re too full from Christmas dinner and you don’t want dessert or cheese yet, that’s when you have a bag of these. I’ve actually been having them as a healthy snack in my lunch box. They’re versatile and super yummy.
Get some for your lunch box, for Christmas day or boxing day, you could even get some for a long car journey. They’re better than the alternatives out there which can be full of unwanted calories!
I hope I’ve given you loads of ideas for your gift giving this year, remember to buy someone something with thought and love. That being said don’t go getting yourself into debt just to give others debt. If you could have one thing off this list, what would it be?
