The countdown to Christmas is on and what an ideal time to unwind, eat yummy food, and spend quality time with your friends and family.
However, this time of year leads to a lot of unwanted gifts in the landfill. The good news is that it doesn't have to be that way, as we share six eco-friendly gifting ideas for the festive period. Whether you're buying for yourself, or for someone special, we have something for everyone 🎁
Tangle Angel Top Tip: remember its quality, not quantity. Just under half of UK people claim they have received unwanted presents that they will never use. Purchasing fewer but higher-quality presents decreases the likelihood of goods going to waste and might be beneficial for your money as well.
Read on to find the perfect eco-friendly gift 💚
A Gift For Your Hair 👱♀️

If you ask us, it is the perfect Christmas gift 😉
Sustainable Skincare 🧼
We all hate removing makeup especially using cotton pads 🙅♀️
All that harsh, abrasive removal can be super drying and can make your skin more sensitive. Switching to sustainable cotton pads can help you simply create a new, clean and fresh base. The luxuriously smooth pads glide across your face, gently removing makeup, debris, and grime without scrubbing 😍
Did you know one reusable cotton pad replaces 500 single-use pads, making it the ideal environmentally friendly present?
Nighttime Nourishment 😴
Dry skin in the winter can be a nightmare for so many of us, and trying to find skincare brands made from recycled material or with materials that can be recycled is even more difficult; however, they are on the market - you just need to hunt them down. For example, facial oils are perfect for an overnight treatment to hydrate and plump the winter chills away, and their glass packaging is 100% recyclable.
Hair Goals 🧴
A far few majorities of shampoos and conditioners are full of sulphates, parabens, phthalates and are tested on animals, which causes extreme environmental damage.
Switching to a vegan shampoo, free from all the nasties, can help to lessen the need for specific animal resources. Many manufacturers are also embracing the organic and natural side of hair care, which means that less harmful chemicals and materials are being washed down the drain with each hair wash or bath.
Also, keep an eye out for fragrance-free shampoos, as they can have relatively strong compounds that have an impact on indoor and outdoor air quality. Our skin is thought to be the primary way we are exposed to scents. Which is very irritating if you suffer from inflammation or eczema.
Blissful Body Bars 🛀
Body wash bars are a wonderful stocking filler idea! Made from sustainable, eco-friendly materials and essential oils, infused with calming, relaxing, rejuvenating properties and smells.
Many bars are manufactured from sustainable palm oil and are composed of 99% percent natural ingredients, vegan-friendly, and cruelty-free. All body bars are also 100% biodegradable, making it easier for you to not worry about recycling 🌎
Pooch’s Presents 🐶
Finally, the most important present of all if you ask us, our four-legged friends! Make their Christmas dreams come true with a Pet Angel detangling brush 🎅
Our Pet Angel brushes are also part of the Re:born range. They are gentle on all types of fur and detangle seamlessly. The velvety-soft bristles travel through the fur, allowing an effortless experience for you and your furry friend.
