Stockings are such a wonderfully festive tradition. Yet I sometimes do feel it creates a sense of panic buying just to get them filled up. We are trying to buy less ‘stuff’ in our family for lots of reasons. One is the fact that with a young child, we are already bursting at the seams! We are also trying to be more conscious of our impact on the environment.
So this gift guide of ideas is for entirely edible stocking fillers. Obviously these come in packaging, but all of the packaging can be recycled or reused. Let’s tuck in…
Steenbergs is one of my favourite brands and they offer tonnes of good options for stocking fillers. Their Organic Happy Hippy Herbal Tea is perfect to lift up flagging spirits and fight those wintry blues or mid-afternoon blues. It looks so pretty too🌹
Blue Aurora is a fabulous array of award-winning English wines made purely and simply from British-grown blueberries. There are divine fruity wines to tempt your taste buds: Dusk, Midnight and Ice Wine.
These beautiful mini antique-style brass serving bowls are from Indian food experts Mandira’s Kitchen. They come complete with an oval tray and a jar of our Tomato & Date Chutney with Spiced Crackers. This is a great way to serve your condiments, dips, chutneys and more.
These premium, travel-inspired range of bottled cocktails are new addition to the drinks market. They use only small batch, craft spirits from around the world, and are blended and hand-bottled in London. Simply pour over ice for a delicious drink. The lychee martini is dreamy.
This range of three small-batch chilli sauces are fermented to give an amazing well-rounded flavour as well as some punch. Great for using as a condiment, marinade or cooking ingredient, choose from three different flavours and heat levels.
Hopefully these have provided some food for thought (excuse the pun). Here’s to a deliciously sustainable Christmas!
