Last updated on December 11th, 2023 at 02:39 pm

‘There is no more extraordinary magic than Christmas’

Oh, don’t you love it? Roasting chestnuts, pretty lights, Christmas movies in your PJ’s… it’s the best time of year. Of course, the relaxation can kick in well after you’ve finished that Christmas shopping list. So many people, so little time. Do not fret; grab yourself a mince pie and unwrap our merry little list of cosy and eco-friendly gifts everyone will love. From the bathroom hoggers beauty sleep lovers to green dreamers, we’ll make sure you put a big smile on all your nearest and dearest faces this year.

What is sustainable gifting?

Sustainable gifting involves having the environment at heart when choosing Christmas gifts. It means taking the time and effort to find eco-friendly brands that create products from natural materials and use recycled packaging to ensure their business practices meet the highest environmental standards. At Panda, we proudly offer an eco-friendly production process from the forest to the front door. Our cosy Bamboo Bedding and home collections are designed to last, minimising consumption and tackling the pressure buying cheaper, convenient products that quickly get thrown away can have on the environment. Another way to implement sustainable gifting is opting for environmentally friendly wrapping paper. Currently, the UK alone uses 227,000 miles of wrapping paper each year. Use reusable bags and choose e-cards over cards ending up in landfills. These small changes can significantly benefit creating a healthier environment, reducing waste and putting even more joy into gifting.

1. For the eco-warriors

This time of year can cause a lot of eco-anxiety, especially for those who are highly planet-conscious in their lifestyle choices. Knowing how to do Christmas with minimum environmental impact is a challenge, but the abundant benefits of sustainable gifting make it worth every effort. Six hundred eighty-eight thousand tonnes of waste end up in landfills at Christmas, including wrapping paper, packaging, and food waste. Choosing gifts from eco-friendly brands like Panda, who consider their carbon footprint at every stage of production, will ensure they enjoy their presents, knowing the planet is being taken care of.

2. For the beauty sleep lovers

Tis’ the season to get snuggly, so why not get your loved ones set up the cosiest bedtimes? If there is one thing we all want to do more of in the holidays, it’s sleep and having the best bedding will make sure it’s as comfy as possible. Our soft, silky Bamboo Eye Mask makes Christmas naps a dream. The sustainable fabric is thermoregulating, lightweight and hypoallergenic, so it is nice and gentle on the skin. And this year has seen some revolutionary breakthroughs in sustainable sleep tech like our Hybrid Bamboo Pillow. Our Hybrid is the best pillow to ensure healthy alignment, with antibacterial CharcoCell Foam™ and O2 MicroPods™ to optimise freshness and airflow. That’s two stocking fillers done and dusted.

3. For the bathroom diva’s

This is the most indulgent time of year for those who love a pamper. However, coming out of the tub can be chilly. Soft, fluffy Bamboo Bath Towels will keep your loved ones nice and snug as they dry off. And to warm up cold bathroom floors? Our plush, eco-friendly bamboo rug is heaven on feet and an oh-so-fancy Christmas gift to find under the tree. Combining our skin-friendly bath range with natural bath oils and body creams will keep the skin nice and hydrated. Choosing eco-friendly and natural ingredients is better for the environment and tends to be far more gentle on the skin and our planet, which we all need to keep in our hearts this time of year.

4. For the trendsetters

This year, it’s all about making planet-friendly choices from sustainable materials and preloved products. Instead of buying your trendy friends and loved ones new clothes, why not give them vouchers to rent stylish outfits (like the New Year party dress) from preloved stores? Choosing sustainable fabrics like bamboo for bedding PJs and sustainably sourced resources will keep your gifting on trend and help reduce the excessive levels of waste the festive period causes. You can choose preloved products on everything from mattresses to sofas online, browse, and find the trendiest gifts to keep your loved ones and our planet smiling.

5. For the green dreamers

We have the perfect gift for those who love their sleep as much as the planet. Our Hybrid Bamboo Mattress, released early this year, is an eco-friendly bedtime game changer. Made in the UK from responsibly sourced materials, the mattress harnesses the unique properties of fresh bamboo-infused memory foam (BioCell Foam™), maximising breathability, while OrthoAlign Foam™ keeps sleepers in perfect alignment. Seven zones of pocket springs isolate movement for those who share a bed, and the soft, smooth bamboo cover seals the mattress in hypoallergenic, naturally antibacterial comfort. Arriving in fully recycled packaging with free delivery and disposal of old mattresses, every green dreamer is guaranteed a good night’s sleep this Christmas.

Giving back during Christmas

While at Christmas, it’s easy to get swept up in all the fun and chaos – it’s an essential time of year to remember those less fortunate. Making charitable donations can make a big difference to someone’s day. Small donations to homeless charities can help provide the homeless with a hot meal and a place to rest. Donating to organisations like the British Health Foundation can make a big difference to someone’s future. Take a moment to consider where you could give back this Christmas, another way to make the world a happier place at this magic time of year.

A final festive note

Fabulous Christmas gifts aside, if there is one thing we can all give each other more of this season, it is time. With the rush of lights going up and busy stores, it’s easy to forget what Christmas is all about, which is coming together to celebrate. And no matter what we find under the tree, there is no better gift than laughing, eating and being merry with our nearest and dearest.

Have a wonderful Christmas, everyone!
