*AD – Gifting Sustainably This Christmas With Veo contains items that have been gifted to me. You can read my full disclaimer here.
We are all now more aware of how our actions can affect the environment. Through this, I know myself, as well as so many of you have become more conscious of the choices we make with products we use. In recent years, I have made quite a few switches to more sustainable options.
One area that can sometimes still be lacking is gifting. In the past, I’ve received some beautiful items for birthdays. However, they always come in so much plastic packaging and are often made from non-recyclable materials. I’ve since made the decision to ask for money or gift cards, so that I can choose things I know I need or will make use of.
When it comes to gifting to others, I’ll always try to buy gifts from small businesses who offer sustainable options. I’m determined that I will be gifting sustainably this Christmas. If this is something you want to do too, keep reading because I know you will love the company I’m about to talk about…

My Top Picks From Veo World:
For this gift guide, I will be focusing on health and beauty related items. Don’t worry though, there will still be more gift guides available in the next few weeks. As a suggestion, all of the items I’m about to mention could be put into a gift hamper for a loved one.
Firstly, I just wanted to mention that this smells incredible. This vegan-friendly lip and cheek balm is packed full of goodness. It includes five organic essential oils that are not only long lasting, but will make you feel amazing inside and out.
For people that are always on the move, this healthcare supplement spray is perfect because it is a spray version. Made with the highest quality ingredients, its also vegan, allergen free and contains no artificial sweeteners, colours or flavourings.
This lavender soap is both luxurious and moisturising and is the perfect way to aid relaxation. It contains a blend of oils including olive, hemp, cacao and coconut. This is all enhanced with delightful aromas of essential oils.
When you think of items that contain plastic, you probably wouldn’t think your hair scrunchie does. However there is no need to worry when it comes to this organic cotton scrunchie. It’s beautifully soft and will ensure you hair is tied back securely without causing your hair to snag, tangle or tear.
Reusable face pads have been popular for a little while now and are great to cleanse the day away whilst being eco friendly. Gifting a loved one some of these is the perfect way for someone to try them. Until you feel how soft they are for yourself, you won’t realise how much you’ve been missing out.
Sticking with the Flawless brand, this rose and lavender toner would be the perfect partner to the makeup remover pads above. It has been carefully formulated to ensure you skin is left feeling hydrated and fresh.
The final item I wanted to mention was this sea salt body scrub from Buff. With coconut oil and pure essential oils of lemon eucalyptus, spearmint, rosemary and cedarwood, its like a spar treatment in a jar.
This is only a small selection of products from Veo. There were so many more I could have chosen but I wanted to keep this post short and sweet. Make sure you check out all the incredible products available on the Veo website because there are some great options if you are gifting sustainably this Christmas.
