It’s been a rough few months here in Australia. Almost every state and territory has been in and out of lockdown to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Whilst we know it’s necessary to protect ourselves and our loved ones, the emotional toll of lockdowns can really get us down, especially when we can’t express our love to family and friends in person!
Christmas In July | Flora & Fauna Style
How about celebrating Christmas in July — we could all use a bit of festive joy right now to lift our spirits. Plus, sending a thoughtful gift or a heartfelt message to a loved one in isolation or lockdown will seriously brighten their day/week/month!
Below, we’ve put together some gift box ideas for yourself or a loved one during lockdown. Also, did we mention that you can add a personalised handwritten message to your box of goodies from Flora & Fauna? That’s right! You can express your love, send an encouraging quote, or include a joke!
Let’s take a look at some ways to sprinkle some festive joy into the month of July.
Flora & Fauna | Christmas Gift Box
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, so why not recreate the taste, smell and sound of Christmas in July? Delivering some festive goodies to a loved one, can brighten their day.
There’s nothing more Christmassy than gingerbread, and that’s why we love Melinda's Gluten-Free Goodies Gingerbread Loaf Mix. This tasty blend of ginger and spices will transport you straight into a delicious, imaginary Christmas wonderland. Drink wise, you can’t go past chai tea for a heartwarming experience. So, why not send a box of the English Tea Shop’s Organic Intense Chai Teabags? Or, for the hot chocolate fans, Loving Earth’s Creamy Drinking Chocolate.
Lastly, treat them to the complete scent of Christmas with Absolute Essential’s Christmas Season Pure Blend Oil with warm, comforting notes of Frankincense and Myrrh.
F&F Gardening Gift Box
Do you have a loved one with a green thumb? Why not give them the gift that keeps on giving!
Urban Greens specialise in DIY growing kits, and there’s a tonne of different varieties — like Kitchen Herbs, Groovy Greens, Summer Salad, Spicy Salsa, Culinary Flowers, and even a Mixologists kit for cocktail fruits and herbs! Know a tea-lover? Urban Greens also have Grow Your Own Tea kits, which include ready-to-plant seeds, soil, a pot, an enamel mug, and even a tea strainer!
You couldn’t send a gardening gift box without a beautiful card from Sow N Sow! There are so many themed cards and seeds to choose from, like sunflowers, daisies, poppies — even leafy greens and herbs. Sow N Sow also have flower press kits — did we mention that they’re absolutely stunning?
F&F Self-Care Gift Box
Proper self-care is so important right now, so why not pamper your loved one with a box of self-care goodies?
For a luscious bath or shower, we love the gorgeous body scrubs from Buddy Scrub. They come in delicious scents like Coffee & Mandarin, Green Tea & Lime, Charcoal & Peppermint, and more! We’ve also got the luxurious Buddy Scrub Body Oils in Jasmine & Chamomile and Rose & Hibiscus.
If they’re an essential oil lover, gift the Sunshine State Of Mind Trio. This uplifting, purifying and mood-enhancing trio is the perfect gift for anyone in lockdown. See F&F’s Essential Oils here. Finally, we adore these Eye Masks and Eye Pillows from Wheatbags Love! They’re designed with native Australian flora and ensure a peaceful, restful night’s sleep.
