Last minute gift ideas – no shops involved!
Okay if you have been slack and left it right to the last minute, you still have some options!
No, you don’t have to go to the shops and fight with the crowds, just take ten minutes online and you are sorted. These work well for Christmas and for birthdays! Check out these ideas:
Most online stores have gift vouchers and will email them to you so you can print them out or forward on to your recipient. I think gift vouchers are actually a pretty good choice when you are unsure about what to buy. There are a lot of unwanted gifts that end up in landfill!
Here are some of my favourite places that offer gift vouchers:
Happy Skincare – natural Aussie skincare and makeup
Biome Eco Store – natural, eco and fair trade
Shop Naturally – all things natural
Twenty 8 – aromatherapy and skincare
Changing Habits – a gift of good health
Hello Charlie – everything organic baby and kids
Oxfam Shop – fairtrade, upcycled, organic
Booktopia – books, books, books and dvds too
Miessence – natural health and skin
Nutra Organics – wholefood and superfoods
Enjo – chemical free cleaning
Earthing Oz – radiation protection and earthing products
Nourishing Hub – gifts, beauty, wellness, baby, body, home and more
♥ Magazine subscriptions. This takes less than five minutes to do – get them sent to your loved ones address and send an e-card with your message and details of the gift. If you are not sure what they would prefer, get a gift card. Too easy.
These are some of my faves:
Clean Eating – three issues free!
♥ Healthy Living Club subscription.
For only $97 you can get someone a lifetime subscription to Cyndi O’Meara’s Healthy Living Club at Changing Habits. I am a member and it’s a fantastic resource.
So easy! Most ebooks have instant download as soon as you pay. Just forward on the link with a nice Christmas message. Done.
