Festive gifts that keep on giving


01 December 2022

It is the most wonderful time of the year, and that means it’s time to start thinking about what to get your loved ones for Christmas.

It can be hard to find a present that they will love – but fear not! We’ve compiled a list of some of our favourites – whether you’re buying for a hard-to-please aunt or your husband who just needs to take his foot off the gas…

The great all-rounder

You read it here first: our Newton Wood® Epsom salt crystals are suitable for everyone, offering the perfect, natural therapy for the everyday rigours of life.

The beauty of our Epsom salts is that they can be used in a variety of ways – from foot soaks to baths and showers – and are also a great exfoliant. If hubby plays sports, the properties found in Epsom salt will help relax and repair muscle damage. And the magnesium release from using the salts is ideal for women of all ages needing to relax.

The other reason why Epsom salt crystals make an ideal gift is if you’re buying for someone who has an ailment (and you want to show that you’ve put some extra thought into their present!) People with conditions such as fibromyalgia, haemorrhoids, eczema, asthma, arthritis or psoriasis can all benefit from using Epsom salt crystals, and it’s also safe for those who are pregnant too.

We’d recommend our 1kg Quintessential Jar, which is designed to be refilled again and again and looks stylish in any bathroom. But for that someone special, our Harmony Package covers everything they need to get started for less than £30 including two 1kg Classic tubes, and four 250g Essential packs.

Why not grab a tote bag and wooden spoon at checkout to make a great well thought out gift for that special someone in your life?

For self-indulgers
For those looking for some extra pampering (and let’s face it, self-care is an important part of life), you can’t go wrong with one of our luxurious organic bath and body oils.

Our ‘Relax’ range features a tranquil mix of bergamot, lavender and clary sage essential oils to help relax and unwind. The ‘Revitalise’ range offers a blend of mandarin, geranium and eucalyptus to help soothe aches and pains and renew your vitality.

Finally, the ‘Restore’ organic selection combines lavender, rosemary and pine essential oils to ground and restore balance in your wellbeing. All our bath and body oils are beautifully presented in a 100ml recyclable glass bottle with a copper cap.

A lovely stocking filler idea is our Calming Pillow Mist, which offers a soothing blend of essential oils expertly blended to help you drift off into the land of nod in no time. Presented in a convenient 50ml glass bottle, it’s ideal for using every night whether you are at home or travelling.

And talking of travelling, our Home & Away package is ideal for those on the go. For just £15 they’ll enjoy receiving our natural Epsom Salt crystals – a 1kg Classic tube plus two 250g Essential packs and that all-important wooden spoon, all lovingly packaged up in a lovely presentation box.

Dropping the hints
Finally, we all know that giving gifts to others is a way of showing how much you care, but what about giving a gift to yourself? When we talk about sustainability and less waste for a greener and cleaner world, it’s better to drop hints about what you would like to receive for Christmas rather than something that ends up in a drawer not being used.

So, whatever you’d like this year for Crimbo – here’s three ideas on how to drop the biggest hints…

  1. Leave a picture of the gift you want on your coffee table, circle it and write ‘Must buy for myself!’ in marker pen.
  2. Invite a friend over (tell them what you’re doing first!) – and with people in earshot, exclaim loudly that you’d love to receive ‘X’ present as it would really help you relax after a hard day.
  3. Play Mariah Carey’s ‘All I want for Christmas’ song and start singing along, replacing the words ‘..Is you’ with the name of your perfect gift!

And if none of the above works (good luck!), then you’ll just have to ‘fess up and spell it out to your nearest and dearest.

We’d like to wish all our customers a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful, healthy and happy start to the New Year!

I was amazed by how velvety smooth the water turned once I sprinkled in some of the salts - it felt so nice on my skin. I used a whole travel sachet and that was just the right amount. I'd recommend these salts to anyone who likes a simple, effective bath as it almost instantly eased my aches and pains, or for anyone that has a busy lifestyle and wants to relax at the end of a long day.
