Feel good about giving this Christmas

Have you ever given a gift you felt bad about giving? Something that might have been made in a sweatshop? That was wrapped in ten tonnes of plastic packaging? That was actually pretty useless and would inevitably end up in landfill?

I know I have. This year I want to do something different. I want to give gifts that people can actually use, or eat! Gifts that are good for people and the planet. 

I'm a big believer in voting with our wallets. Every time we spend money we're voting for the kind of future we want to see. If we buy from large, unethical corporations we are voting for a world that allows sweatshops, pollution and waste. If we buy from local producers that make their products from chemical-free, ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients, we're voting for a better, fairer, more sustainable future.

So this year I’ve put together a list of some of my favourite local, ethical, chemical-free foods and products that would make great gifts for your parents, your in-laws, aunties, uncles, cousins, grandparents and friends.  Gifts you can feel good about giving and that will help local producers, farmers and small business like ours have a great Christmas too!

Pre-orders are open now so put yours in asap and feel good about giving gifts that give back this Christmas.


Christmas fruit boxes, mango trays and cherries are also on the list! (You might want to give some of these to yourself as well...). Pre-order now so you don’t miss out.
