Expressive Chocolates

Thoughtful, indulging and all-natural, Bellabery Chocolate is an eye-catcher that is sure to bring a smile and laughter among all. A combination of taste and talk encased in a hard-wearing matt laminated cardboard carton adorned with creative unique designs and words is sure to lighten up even the grumpiest ones in the room! With a choice of dark or milk chocolate, take a pick of one-liners that say “Emergency Chocolate,” “No Weight Gain,” “Bee Awesome,” Pilates Repellent among others.

Unlike conventional chocolates that are produced using cacao and sugar that are grown with the aid of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and more these are made up the same that use biodynamic and organic fertilizers and pest deterrents.

Synonymous Seeds

Since Kris Kringle is all about giving meaningful gifts and growing a healthy relationship, how about adding useful and untreated seeds to the list for a nutritious Christmas? Rosie Lou Pack of Seeds similar to Bellabery Chocolate are not only organic but comes in amusing and unusual packaging. With jalapeno seeds sealed in a packet that says “You’re So Hot” or melon seeds in a “One in a Melon” packet, these catchy lines whimsically reflect the product inside. 

As far as the packaging is concerned, 100% of Rosie Lou paper goods are proudly printed on 100% Post-Consumer Recycled (Uncoated) Card. Vegetable based inks are used to reduce the amount of volatile organic compounds (toxic gases,) released into the atmosphere during printing. These inks do not contain hazardous heavy metals thus creating a healthier workplace for printing staff with drastically reducing the environmental impact both during production and for future recycling.

Handy Handkerchiefs

They say the handkerchief back then used to be symbolic of love where it was a means of communication between two lovers. For the Thai it is believed that the handkerchief is used for wiping tears, so someone who receives a handkerchief as a gift will lose their tears. This said Hanky Fever offers a modern take on the traditional handkerchief. Produced in Melbourne, Australia, the collection includes fun and stylish hankies made with 100% cotton offering ladies, men & childrens hankies, along with an exciting 'Australian' range.

Interesting animated designs that are perfect for the season include, ReindeerHopping into Christmas and Christmas Cars. If you want to keep up with the Australian tourist spirit, then pick the Australian Sunshine featuring little abstract images of the continent, Kangaroo + Joey featuring the indigenous animal and it's little one or the colorful Australian Flora & Fauna. Other unconventional ones include Grey SheepMoustacheFolklorico among others.

Artsy Socks

Hanging stockings is a tradition during Christmas, so gifting socks to someone is truly appropriate for the occasion. Artnwords ethically created distinctive pairs of socks that merge unique pop art designs to a piece of history is an ideal choice. Unisex, the brand matches old Dictionary, World Atlas and Sheet Music pages to modern edgy images. 

Gutsy Books

Gifting books can be common but getting books that are for grins and in your face but at the same time thought-provoking and empowering are rare. An engaging pick of such is “Get Your Sh*t Together” from United Book Distributers and “Go F*ck, I Mean, Find Yourself Book” from Hardie Grant Books. These may sound sneering but if your group is fond of sarcasm then don’t think twice!
