Giveaway #8: Holly Berry Christmas Tree
Planning to buy a Christmas Tree for the holiday season? Please DON’T! Over 7 million trees end up in the landfill each year. What an enormous waste! Much better to rent your tree from London Christmas Tree Rental. It’s easy and eco-friendly. Your child will love looking after it and you can then return it so as to have it back the following year. What a brilliant initiative!
That’s how we got to discover Holly Berry and we fell in love with her. We’d love you to meet Holly too. This Miniature Christmas Tree is about 50 cm high and comes complete with decorations, tinsel, fairy lights, reindeer poop (compost) and a beautifully illustrated story map of life in the North Pole. Holly is being kindly donated to one of our lucky followers in support of our #celebrate2donate Christmas campaign.
What we really love about Holly is that she’s such a thoughtful, heartwarming and super kind gift, not just for children but for grannies too. Sitting on a bedside or coffee table, she can brighten any room and bring lots of festive light and cheer.
Our Holly Berry prize is going live for entries on 30th November 2020 and could be yours on 2nd December. In case that’s not your lucky day, you can still get your own Holly Berry here and show them some love!
Giveaway #9: Pure Bundle Capsule Wardrobe
We want to share with you our love for eco-friendly brands, especially those that promote sustainable fashion for children. We all know children grow at lightning speed and hardly get to wear any particular items more than a few times before they become too small. That’s why we like the team at Pure Bundle who make those clothes last just a little bit longer in the hands of another family.
A free baby clothes capsule wardrobe of your choice (0 to 3 yrs; boy or girl) is kindly donated by the team at Pure Bundle to one lucky winner. Head over to their site to check out what they do and how they help you save time and money in a way that’s kind to the planet and the local community. We think you’ll enjoy their capsule wardrobes of preloved clothes in pristine condition curated for you from the best designer, premium and high street brands.
The prize goes live on our Instagram page on 3rd December and it could be yours on the 5th. T&Cs apply.
Giveaway #10: KIVU Skincare
This is a treat for yourself, kindly donated by the team at KIVU so your skin can look youthful and radiant this Christmas season.
Developed by Dr. Brazzini based on her scientific research and work as a dermatologist, Kivu’s skincare products use a natural formulation with anti-aging, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Gentle to the skin and free from parabens and perfume, they are suitable for people with sensitive or reactive skin. Perfect as a Christmas present for a close friend or a treat for yourself.
Giveaway #11: Mother & Baby wellness set
We wanted to curate a wellness set for a first-time mum and baby. Could this be you or a friend of yours? This lovely set includes everything you need for a relaxing bath and a healthy massage for you and your baby.
