There's nothing that screams Christmas fun, more than an advent calendar! And why wouldn't it? Counting down the days to Christmas and treating yourself to a gift? Sounds good to us!
This year we have tea, chococolate and makeup calendars for you to choose from. Did we mention we even have a calendar for your furry friend? Let's explore.
Up first, is English Tea Shop's Tea Advent Calendar. This calendar includes 25 delicious teas to indulge in across December and they are all certified organic! We also have Golden Wattle Tea which includes 12 signature blends for the final 12 day countdown to Christmas. Choose between their cold infusions (perfect for summer), matcha or festive boxes — all unique and bound to impress. For the chocolate lovers, we have So Free's Vegan Chocolate Calendars in Milk Chocolate and Caramel. Simply open and enjoy everyday throughout December.
For the beauty lover's Inika's Advent Calendar does not disappoint. Unbox 12 days of cult favourites, naturally luminous makeup, high-performance skincare and so much more! Lastly, your furry friends don't have to miss out on the fun, Veggie Paws Calendar, contains a special nutritious, hand baked biscuit treat for 24 days.
Cards, Wraps & Decorations
New to F&F is our Banksia Christmas Decorations. They are made from seed pods of a banksia tree and are the sustainable way to decorate your Christmas tree. We also have Earth Greetings Bamboo Baubles made from sustainable and biodegradable bamboo. These decorations look absolutely beautiful on your tree too!
When it comes to adding a bit of fun to your Christmas Cards, choose to celebrate with Sow n Sow Christmas Wildflowers Gift of Seeds — it will add seasonal magic to any garden. Nurturing Nature Cards, also allows your receiver to plant the card and watch them grow. Pretty cool right?
When it comes to wrapping up presents, try reuse where you can! All our F&F orders come with brown paper packaging — an easy place to start. You can even draw or paint on it and make your own unique designs. We also have Reusable Gift Wrap, that is super beautiful — a gift in itself in our opinion! In fact, you might even ask for it back, so you can regift it again and again.
Beauty & Body Gift Packs
When it comes to gifting — you can't go wrong with a gift pack! The ANSC has released a beautiful limited edition Christmas Soap collection. The pack celebrates the scents and spirit of Christmas, including candy cane, gingerbread house and aussie beach (think of this one like merging beach time and shower time together). We love it!
For the makeup lovers in your life, Luk Beautifood Lip Duos, including a natural lipstick and lip liner crayon will be sure to impress. These staples, provide all-day comfortable wear, full coverage and a creamy semi-matte finish. If you're after an eye gift pack, Inika's Eyeshadow Set helps create versatile eye looks to suit any occasion. It features an eyeshadow quad, eye pencil and shadow brush. For a seamlessly radiant complexion, the Luminous Set imparts all-over luminosity, flushed cheeks and sculpted features. A true crowd pleaser!
Raww's Cleansing Kit is great for any skincare enthusiast! It comes complete with a creamy cleanser (ideal for drier complexions) and a cleansing brush. If you know someone who loves taking trips to the beach, Butt Naked's Sunkissed Sun Kit is the perfect gift set to help get their body prepped for those summer days. With smells of coconut, body shimmer and a lip balm for hydration.

What's Christmas without a huge food spread for your friends and family? The Foods of Athenry Mince Pies make a great pre-lunch treat and vegan alternative.
Now on to the gifts... we have so many gorgeous treats for the chocolate lovers! These are great as a stocking filler, or choose to buy multiple and create your own foodie gift pack! So Free's Vegan Organic Mylk Chocolate Santa Bar is super cute and made with organic cocoa and rice milk that gives it a creamy and smooth texture. And what's Santa without his reindeer? Pair this bar with NoMo Reindeer Cookie Dough Chocolate.
If you're after something more luxury, Bonvita's Choc Christmas Tree, is sure to excite anyone lucky enough to receive one! Its decadent hazelnut praline filling is going to leave you wanting more. Bonvita also has a pack of Choc Minis In Stars & Trees. A lovely gift to celebrate the seasons festivities.
An easy chocolate gift to give, is with Loving Earth. They have trio's and gift packs including, mylk, dark choc and caramel flavours. Simple but classic! Chow Cacao has also introduced some new choccie flavours in beautiful packaging.
Essential Oils & Candles
Ecoya has released a new range of products and we are absolutely vibing their cool pacakaging — very christmassy. Choose between their candles, reed diffusers or car diffusers. They all smell amazing! I'm personally loving the sweet and sugary smell of the Strawberry Spritz Candle.
Mojo Candle has also released a new candle collection — Australian scent inspired. The glass candles have matched the smell of the candle to an image of the flora it represents. It's super vibrant in colour and distinctive in appearance — perfect for celebrating Christmas.
Last but not least, gifts for your furry friends!
Veggie Paws has three very festive dog treats to choose from.
Their Gingerbread Men Shaped Biscuit treats contain fresh pumpkin, molasses, cinnamon and ginger. For something a little smaller in size, is the Chocolate Pudding Bites. This treat is super healthy for dogs. They are low fat and are bursting with fruits and vegetables — apple, pear, orange and dates. You can also choose Santa Paws. These gourmet dog treats in watermelon slushie and super green smoothie flavours are made from all-natural ingredients including rolled oats, watermelon and spinach. These treats are also low fat and packed with nutrients.
