Practical gift ideas for Christmas and beyond

*We were kindly sent some items to share for this post. We are all about practical gift ideas for Christmas and beyond. All opinions are our own*

For me giving and receiving gifts is fun, and I love it. But I am a practical person, so this post is all about the practical but still lovely gift ideas you could give this Christmas. Showing you have put some thought and love into your gift giving but making them useful too. So here are some ideas I thought might work.

A beautiful but practical beach towel

LeStoff beach towel – These traditional towels follow a more than 600 year old Ottoman weaving tradition, are made of 100% cotton and weigh only 275 grams (10 oz). Measuring 100 x 180 cm (40” x 70”), LeStoff Classic towels are the same size as a bath towel, and are available in 33 colors. You can minimize them to almost ‘nothing’, but they still absorb as much water as a regular terry towel, even though they weigh only a third of that. Quick-drying and universally applicable, this all-rounder is indispensable for everyday use: at home, in your handbag or travel bag, in the car or in your backpack.

These are lovely, light weight, easy to pack, they wash beautifully and wear well and are great for holidays and visits to the pool, or gym class

Compostable Coffee for your machine:

When we developed our Nespresso capsules we wanted to ensure that we was able to create a capsules that truly showcased the standard of Speciality Coffee that we look to achieve and embodied our goals for the Speciality Coffee industry!
As always the coffee you will find inside all of our capsules is Hand Roasted by us personally in the vibrant seaside town of Whitstable and is carefully sourced by us to ensure that all farmers are paid well above the industry standards for their hard work.
It was very important for us to ensure the “Full Life Cycle” of the capsule was as environmentally friendly as possible, not just the capsules ‘End of Life’ cycle, we wanted to focus on the start & middle of the cycle too! You can read more about our green side here.
So kick back, relax and experience capsules like you never tasted before.

We are big coffee lovers in this house and the husband, I think, loves his Nespresso machine, sometimes more than he loves his family. These compostable coffee pods from Lost Sheep coffee are a brilliant gift idea. Their coffee is excellent and it means you can enjoy your cup knowing you are being a bit more eco friendly too.

Make your car smell nice:

Carfume™️ was started in 2019 with a vision to enhance our customers adventures wherever the road takes them. Set the mood – pick a route, prepare your playlist and choose a premium air freshener that’ll guarantee you Drive Happy. Create some holiday vibes, or match to your favourite fragrance – whatever you pick, we’ll make sure your car smells just as good as you do!

Carfume is a brilliant idea and not your usual sickly sweet or nose clenching cloying car air freshener. As a family, our car sometimes isn’t as fragrant and fresh as it should be, and I am fussy about what we use to make it smell nice, but these are brilliant and they look good too. You can go for a premium fragrance Carfume if you want to give someone something they will appreciate in their car, too.
