Do you remember the nursery rhyme, Oranges and Lemons?
It went something like:
Oranges and Lemons Say the bells of Saint Clement's You owe me five farthings, Say the bells of Saint Martin's. When will you pay me? Say the bells of Old Bailey. When I grow rich, Say the bells of Shoreditch. When will that be? Say the bells of Stepney. I do not know, Say the great bells of Bow.
They feature items such as mugs and jugs, plates and platters, jars and napkins and bowls and a very pretty display they would make on a table, bringing plenty of cheer to a room or making a colourful display on the table outside in the garden on a warm summer's day.
I love lavender and its scent, so I was very pleased to discover Lavender World. They are based in the beautiful North Yorkshire, and I love the idea of buying gifts with a lavender theme!
They have a range of lavender plants of varying sizes - small, medium and large - and also lavender for hedging.
They've got a number of hampers, some for pampering yourself with on an evening in and others for devouring, and they've got lavender oil too. There's also a bath section, with items such as a Yorkshire Lavender Sleep and Relaxation Kit.
There are a couple of items for the garden too that I particularly wanted to draw to your attention because they help wildlife!
Those lovely people at Kind Clothing have got a kind discount for you! They've also got sweatshirts, hoodies, vest tops, joggers and shorts so everything you need for someone who loves the planet and being on the go or being very comfortable at home!
Every purchase plants a tree, too!
Their clothing is ethical and responsible and they don't use any harsh chemicals.
And non-organic cotton doesn't pollute the planet or destroy wildlife. It's kinder on those making it too.
What's more, some of the animal tees include a donation to some amazing wildlife charities that are close to Kind Clothing's heart!
Those fabulous people at Green People have a Sustainable Saturday today.
Spend over £40 with them and they will plant a tree on your behalf. They have been supporting the World Land Trust, which also has a group of fabulous people behind it, who are working hard to help keep earth healthy, green and beautiful for wildlife and people by saving forest acre by acre. The Trust work with local conservation partners in various parts of the world and they are one of my very favourite charities.
I also adore Green People. They produce organic beauty products and they have a lovely gift section, with great gift ideas for babies, men, teenagers and women, so everyone really.
Green People have been supporting the World Land Trust by running a monthly Sustainable Saturday event, and this is the last one in 2020.
The National Trust shop has some great offers on at the moment - perfect just in time for Christmas! The offers end on 23rd November 2020.
Whether you're buying a gift for yourself, a loved one or your wildlife neighbours, your support enables us to care for the nature, beauty and history that help you to slow down and reconnect with the world around you, for ever.
