What I love about Neal’s Yard Remedies (beyond their ethical and organic credentials) is that it’s affordable luxury, and even more because a little goes a long way. No fillers are included meaning there is no need to use an excess amount – whether that’s skin care, body products or their essential oils.
The products look glamorous, but for good reason – the packaging is recyclable, the blue glass preserves the product for longer and prevents UV rays causing damage to them – tick tick tick!
I’ve chosen 15 gift ideas, all for under £15 – whether it’s for a loved one, a Secret Santa idea or as a stocking filler.
Beyond skincare, Neal’s Yard Remedies is a lifestyle brand. With products for the body, mother/pregnancy and baby, hands and feet, essential oils, health products, teas, supplements, aromatherapy remedies, mens products, hair care – the list is long and there really is something for everybody.
If you’re stuck for gift ideas, then hopefully there will be some inspiration here for you…
A treat of a gift. This lavender based mist you spray on to your pillow before bed to help destress and relax at nighttime. Lavender has natural calming properties and therefore this will help anyone have a good night’s sleep.
A multi-tasker! White tea and aloe vera make this a refreshing, cooling and gentle facial mist. Use over make up to keep it in place, use during air travel and on holidays to keep skin hydrated, spritz just before bed for additional care for your skin, keep in your handbag to refresh your face during the day and to keep sweat at bay. Lots of uses and good for all ages and all skin types.
This is literally the best foot scrub I have ever used! Exfoliating peach seed and pumice combined with softening mallow and cleansing ginger and mint to freshen and smooth. If you want softened feet or know someone that does, this is the product is perfect and lasts for ages!Comfrey & Mallow Foot Balm £13.50
Nourish and nurture tired feet with this softening and soothing food cream. A great product to apply at night time or after a bath to really let soak in and work its magic.
The lemon essential oil cleans and removes dirt and grime, and is especially good for cooks as it removes harsh food smells too. A great product for bathrooms as well – when used, the aroma from the citrus scent is left (and is far nicer than other aromas left in bathrooms!). The fast absorbing accompanying lotion is just £13 and makes a great duo gift (and looks fantastic on display).
Neal’s Yard Remedies have a few different handbag size hand creams. The Wild Rose is luscious, containing rosehip which is known for calming, soothing and nourishing skin. From the Wild Rose Beauty Balm range, this is great for drier hands and especially when hands are exposed to the colder weather. Another favourite is the Bee Lovely hand cream. This time, honey is the nourishing ingredient and every sale of products from the Bee Lovely range goes to charities and causes to help protect the vital humble insect. A great reason to buy this product!
A pre-wash or overnight treatment for hair that lacks body, condition and shine. Give hair a boost with this treatment once a week and is ideal for hair that is affected from dye, UV, chlorine and general pollution.
Reach those “hard to reach” places with their back brush made from natural bristles. Exfoliating the back is great to remove dead skin cells revealing a softer skin, and also allows for any body moisturiser or oil to absorb better in to the skin to really fulfil its purpose.
Oh how I LOVE this. Indulge in a beautifully fragrant bath. Not only does this oil smells heavenly and create a sense of balance, it leaves skin moisturised and soft.
A real treat for the shower. It’s not often you find a beautiful shower gel containing coconut and avocado oils. As with Deliciously Ella’s face range, the rose, lime and cucumber leaves skin fresh, clean and ready for the day ahead. Ella’s face wash (£16) is great for all skin types and contains antioxidants for a radiant glow and makes a great stocking filler too.
The multipacks on offer are available in trios (£19 for 3) or in a quad of a different scents (£26). Breaking these up in to smaller stocking filler gifts make a thoughtful, sweet and useful gift for a loved one. Non drying and beautifully fragrant.
Perfect for an expectant or new mother. Kind, gentle and pregnancy-friendly, treat a mummy-to-be to this for some well deserved and much needed “me time”. This gift will encourage her to relax whilst moisturising her skin at the same time.
One for the boys! Men who shave need to exfoliate to prevent ingrowing hairs and to allow for a closer and smoother shave and finish. The “scrub” in the product is ground rice and also contains conditioning honey, refreshing grapefruit oil and purifying kaolin clay.
With goji berry and rosehip, this tea helps to boost skin’s natural radiance with carefully selected antioxidants. A nice addition to hamper gifts too, especially for those who enjoy herbal teas.
Essential Oils (starting at £5.50)
With oils ranging around the £7-10 mark, bring the smell of Christmas to your home this season. Whether that’s cinnamon, pine (sprinkled on a real tree is amazing) orange, frankincense, clove and myrrh – simply add a few drops in to an oil burner or diffuser, or sprinkle on potpourri and decorations. Essential oils (not the fake ones out there) have added benefits whether that’s to revive, refresh or relax.
Of course, there are also some wonderful Christmas gift sets available (image below) but be quick, as these are bound to be popular…Click here to view.
