Three candles of our Advent wreath have already been lit which means that Christmas is just around the corner. In the past weeks, we have provided you with some sustainable inspirations and maybe you already have all the gifts together for your beloved. But for the spontaneous ones among you who have not found just the ticket yet, our Advent Calendar with sustainable gift ideas goes into the final round today:
To all of you who need a sportive compensation after a long day at work, uni or school, we recommend the sports and play board from TicToys. Therewith, you can compose your own fitness programme including warm ups, cardio training and stretching exercises. By bobbing, swinging and surfing, the balance and the body consciousness are encouraged and the blood circulation is set in motion. The board is suited for adults as well as for children and is supplied with an instruction that contains 25 different exercises.
Unfortunately, therapy sessions and educational offerings for children and adults with disabilities are very expensive and often are not funded by the health insurance. And yet, these hours are very effective as they help discovering and strengthening competences whereby the confidence and the enjoyment of life are enhanced. With a donation for the Caritas, you can bestow one hour of happiness and thereby help to increase the autonomy of people with handicaps.
A very personal gift is the pocket box from Licora. The small tins are completely personalisable. There are several fillings to choose from, like for example gummi bears, chocolate, spices, soap or bath salts. In addition to that, also the imprint can be designed individually by simply uploading a photo with the favoured motive and text, or you select one of the numerous ready-made layouts.
The sustainable manual toothbrushes from CareElite are made of natural bamboo wood and are parcelled without plastic. The bristles consist of nylon and charcoal which provides provably for whiter teeth. The vegan toothbrushes are available in a 4 pack for the whole family and are biodegradable. With the income, CareElite funds beach cleanups and informing projets on the subject of plastic waste.
The “Gruß aus Wien” is a beautiful gift box full of Viennese tradition and will bring joy to all the fans of the Austrian capital city, for sure. The packet contains a wooden cassette with Viennese punch doughnuts, a Sziget champagne bomb, a cube candle and the pocket book “Total alles über Wien”. The content is passionately decorated and parcelled and matches original Austrian quality.
24. Christmas Eve
For the 24th of December, we exceptionally do not present you a gift idea as Christmas does not only revolve around bestowing, according to our opinion. Christmas Eve is actually about taking time for oneself and the loved ones, about bethinking of the essentials, counting one’s blessings and enjoying the caring of the family. In this spirit, we wish you a Merry Christmas!
