Let's Minimise Waste

and protect the planet this Christmas

8 great gifts for the whole family that won’t harm the planet

Experience gifts are a great option if you’re looking to have a more sustainable Christmas, as they definitely cannot end up in land-fill. Not only this, but buying a group experience for the whole family to enjoy takes away some of the pressure that often comes with buying lots of individual presents. You’ll make lasting memories, whilst making a more planet-friendly choice. It really is a win win.

Here are our favourite family-friendly gifts that are totally guilt free.

1. The Making of Harry Potter Studio Tour with Afternoon Tea

If your kids are Potterheads (or if you are!) then you can’t go wrong with this waste-free experience: tickets to the must-see Making of Harry Potter Studio Tour, complete with a traditional afternoon tea at nearby Mercure Hunton Park. From the Forbidden Forest to Gringotts Bank and of course the Great Hall, escape the Muggle world and step into the Harry Potter universe for a magical Christmas none of you will forget.

From £130

2. Family Tree House Escape

If you’d like a chance to connect with nature, but don’t fancy a night enduring mud and rain, then this eco-friendly tree house escape offers the perfect alternative. Cosy up in this luxurious treehouse in Snowdonia National Park, complete with tea lights, lanterns, and a wood burning stove that heats the place in minutes (it even heats the shower). There are beaches nearby, and plenty of countryside to explore. We can’t think of a more idyllic place to spend Christmas or New Year.

From £399

3. Zorbing

This one is for the thrill- and adventure-seekers! Harness zorbing involves being pushed down a steep hill in a giant inflatable zorbing ball. Sound good? We think so too. It’s a guaranteed laugh-a-minute, and is something really different to enjoy over the festive season.

From £55

4. A terrarium workshop

This unique gift experience offers the perfect opportunity to get the family flexing their green fingers, learning about nature, and decorating a self-sustaining for botanical garden for their bedroom!

From £69

5. Theatre tickets

Nothing says Christmas quite like a trip to the West End; and the best part is, experiences like this don’t end up in landfill. Whether you want to travel down to London and team your show with dinner, afternoon tea or a hotel stay, or would rather see a show closer to home, we’ve got an unforgettable theatre trip to suit you.

From £99

6. An Escape Room

If any of your nearest and dearest love a bit of Sherlock Holmes, this could be the ideal Christmas gift for them. Choose from hundreds of brilliant Escape Rooms around the country and test your family’s detective skills, whilst working closely together as a team. A brilliant and zero-waste day out for all.

From £29

7. A pottery workshop

Who wouldn’t love the opportunity to get behind the spinning wheel and create some beautiful ceramics for their home? A zero-waste gift with zero-waste results that will (hopefully) be used and re-used for years to come. And you never you know - it might even mark the beginnings of a new hobby.

From £39

8. A family visit to an Open Garden

Explore the outdoors, breathe some fresh air and reconnect with our beautiful planet after all the Christmas indulgence, with a trip to one of the UK’s stunning open gardens. This is a great gift which will also remind loved ones why minimising waste and protecting our planet is so important.
