Looking to have a more planet friendly Christmas? Feel good when gifting this festive season with our top eco-friendly gifts.

Bees wax wraps

They're a reusable, plastic-free vegan alternative to clingfilm. These Vegan food wraps are handmade using organic cotton and are a natural way to protect and keep your food fresh. Use the warmth of your hands to seal around bowls, sandwiches and loaves of bread. They are reusable for up to a year and can even be popped in the compost after use. A great way to cut down on your plastic use.

Soy candles

Christmas just isn't right without the scents of fir trees, cinnamon and gingerbread. Take the scent home with these 100% natural soy and mineral wax blend candles, hand poured in the UK. There's a range of scents to get you in the festive spirit including Winter Wonderland and Hot Toddy. They're free from Parabens and SLSs and have never been tested on animals. 

1 Tree Cards

What's not to love! These cards are made from 100% recycled card, printed with vegan inks, and come with a 100% recyclable kraft envelope. Every card purchased plants one tree, and if that wasn't enough you'll also receive a seed token to help feed bees. 

English borage honey

Talking of bees, if you know a foody then this locally sourced and produced honey is a top gift. When we say local we mean local! Gathered from beautiful borage fields in East Anglia, including some right here at Marks Hall Estate, and packaged by Rees Bees just down the road in Halstead, this is your super low mile alternative to supermarket honey. And what's more you're supporting the local bee population too. 

Marks Hall Estate Gift of Membership

It doesn't get much more eco-friendly than this! As a charity, purchasing a Gift of Membership for a loved one will help support Marks Hall Estate in their careful management of the Arboretum, gardens, Woodland Walks, and species conservation programmes to ensure a more sustainable future for all. Your lucky recipients will get to see it all in action as membership allows them to visit as many times as they like in a year. All our Gift of Membership packs includes a gift voucher and gift card with a stunning image of the Estate.
