Each year when I come to write the LMH christmas gift guide it amazes me how many more lovely stores there are to choose from selling beautiful recycled/upcycled products. I could honestly have included so many lovely recycled leather bags this year (and will be asking Mr Claus for the one below), the same with recycled scented candles, so many more on offer than last year…isn’t that amazing? I’ve narrowed our gift guide down to 10 items, with something for everyone in the family, even the dog:
First up are these gorgeous beauty baubles from Bloomtown. Each origami bauble contains a mini treat from their gorgeous collection of eco-friendly, cruelty-free beauty products. The mint avo lip balm is amazing for winter! And the icing on the beauty bauble cake? The baubles can be retied and used again or hang on the tree!
A stylish diary is always on my list to santa, the recycled paper 2018 diary from Muji is effortlessly beautiful and will look stylish wherever you are when you pull it out of your bag.
This Ferry boat comes with the two cars to transport the little cars across the bath or the floor wherever your little one chooses to play with it. It’s made by Green Toys who make a gorgeous range of toys make from recycled plastic, it’s a brightly coloured plastic toy I can live with for sure!
Our Rewined Champagne candle is always a hit whoever it’s gifted to. It smells great, looks great and burns for around 80 hours.
I would be SO happy to be gifted this lovely little recycled leather box bag this Christmas, just look how beautifully made it is! It’s made by Paperthinks who make a whole range of gorgeous bags and leather goods in the best colour palette. This bag also looks amazing in Magenta!
Sticking with the leather goods how cool is this neon heart keyring made from recycled leather? Available in neon orange or neon pink it would make the perfect stocking filler for a friend.
This cute, stripy dog coat will keep the most important member of the family cosy throughout winter, it’s made from recycled wool and has a soft fleece lining for extra warmth.

Our metallic gold planters/storage pots are new in the Little Mill House store and the perfect gift when paired with a new succulent for the plant loving friend (we’ve all got one right)?

I’m lusting after a set of these faux crocodile coasters in my stocking this christmas morning. They’re perfect to sit your after dinner Baileys on, don’t you think? They’re made from recycled leather and are also available in black.
How cosy does this recycled wool jumper look? It’s from Mango, in the mens section but I’m pretty sure it would work on women too. The perfect boxing day jumper!
