Last Minute Gift Ideas + Giveaway

December 20, 2015


This post is long overdue and you probably all have Christmas presents by now, but I don't care because I want to share my last minute gift ideas with you. Actually my choices are not really very Christmasy so you can easily get away with them through the whole year and give them for birthdays and other special occasions. The majority of products are more suitable for women but I also included a few gifts for men.
1. Bamboo Wood Cosmetic Organizer - the other day I was thinking that I have to come up with a better idea for storing my makeup. Don't want more plastic so I found this bamboo organizer, which is actually made in Hungary. I would prefer more holes for lipsticks but it still would be a wonderful gift to receive.

2. Windward Made Pink Splatter Tea Towel - now this is a bit different but it is a thing we all use, a kitchen towel. But not just any standard towel. It is handmade in the Netherlands and contains gorgeous organic cotton thread, hemp, organic cotton and non toxic ink. Wow. The shops also has some beautiful scarves which are definitely worth a look.

3. Gaia Creams 'No Nonsense' Beard Oil - beard oils have become quite popular and they are a wonderful gift for men with beards. Oils really make a difference in the texture and overall appearance of the beard. This Gaia Creams oil contains some beautiful ingredients like Grapeseed and Argan Oil to name just two, and essential oils of Cedarwood and Rosemary, which give the oil subtle and woodsy scent.

4. Penguin Mug - well isn't this mug just the cutest? I know a few of my friends would love it so it was only natural to include it. And isn't a mug always a great gift idea? Don't know about you, but I'm obsessed with tea so I'm always happy when I receive a cute mug. This one is also hand painted which means you get a unique design.
5. Ceramic Plate with Raindeer - this one is from a beautiful Slovenian store - Smile Concept Store. They have the cutest little things and you should definitely follow them on Instagram. I could do a whole gift list ideas with only their products! At the end I decided to go with this gorgeous ceramic plate which is perfect for storing rings. It is just too cute!

6. Gaia Creams Gorgeous Hair Oil - the winter time is time to stock up on oils and even though I have a lot to say about dry skin, I decided to rather mention a hair oil. Just the other day I was so annoyed with my hair and how winter and cold weather is affecting them. They don't look as nice as they did in summer that's for sure. I chose this Gaia Cream Gorgeous Hair Oil because it really nourishes the hair and makes them shiny and super soft. It also has a beautiful floral scent. I think it would be such a lovely gift. You can also read my review here.

7. Leahlani Skincare Mermaid Mask - of course I had to include one of my favorite facial masks. I don't think it needs much introductions, it is well known in the green beauty community and is worth all the hype that is surrounding it. It's detoxifying and moisturizing at the same time. Read my review here, all I can say is that it's absolutely wonderful and I highly recommend it. <3

8. Kuma Sunglasses - I saw this brand on Instagram and was immediately drawn in! They look like any other sunglasses but the temples of their sunglasses are actually handcrafted of sustainable bamboo. They also have some shades where the frames are completely made out of bamboo, minus the lenses of course. These fashionable and stylish sunglasses have 100% UVA/UVB protection, some even have polarized lenses, but what is the most amazing thing about the brand is that for every frame sold one tree is planted! And I assume we all know how important trees are, they help mitigate global climate change.

9. Jord Sully Green Sandalwood Watch* - last but most certainly not least is this watch. I've been absolutely loving my Fieldcrest Dark Sandalwood* watch but this is a new one I got and it looks great too. They are made of wood which is just awesome, they wear super nicely, feel lightweight and are a wonderful gift for both, women and men. And you know what, I've teamed up with JORD to giveaway a limited quantity of e-gift cards worth $25 each for the holidays! How great is that?! Entering is super easy - click this link - it will ask you for your email and your favorite JORD watch (it's a hard decision, I know!). Once you hit enter, your code will be emailed directly to you. And that is literally it!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Much love,

Jana xx

  1. Vse mi je zelo všeč. najbolj krasni pa so mi: krožniček iz Smile concept (elegantno in uporabno hkrati!), ura- pa načeloma imam drugačen okus, ampak mi je zelo všečna!!, ter tale skodelica pingvin- res luštkana!! Tudi jaz sem zelo vesela, sploh zadnje čase ko sem tudi obsedena s čajem, če v dar prejmem ali podarim kakšno res prikupno skodelico :).
