It’s just over 2 weeks until Christmas Day! We’ve been getting in the festive mood in the Hopscotch studio thinking about gift ideas, so we thought we’d share them with you! We’ve tried to pick something to suit everyone, so here goes:


For Mums + Aunties…


Mums and Aunties love pampering — and they deserve it! We think gifts to help them relax over the Christmas period and onwards are the perfect solution. Our first pick is our new 100% natural soap in Rosemary and Lavender scent: These bars are handmade in the Netherlands by artisan soap maker Beau Colin using a traditional cold process. Perfect for mature skin, this bar helps to firm the skin while cleansing and hydrating. It also contains high levels of vitamin E, which is essential for preventing ageing caused by UVA damage from the sun’s rays. Our 100% natural Herbivore Botanicals Calm Bath Salts are another great option — the high quality sea salts come from the Dead Sea, all you have to do is add a handful to a bath to infuse the water with minerals ready for the body to absorb. This scent was formulated to relieve tension and help to relax — an ideal way to help solve the stress of Christmas Day. Also available in an uplifting Renew scent.


For Wives + Girlfriends…


Jewellery is the answer to all tricky present problems, well at least we think so… If your present needs some extra sparkle, this gorgeous Gold Vermeil necklace is the perfect gift: 24k gold vermeil cube hang on a dainty 14k gold chain, this necklace goes with any outfit and can be worn on any occasion. If she wears more silver than gold then this Silver Discs necklace, two sterling silver discs hung on a sterling silver chain, is the solution for you. The simple design means it can be worn at any time. A luxurious treat would be some Herbivore Botanicals Citrine Body Oil, a special blend of pure natural botanical oils which leave the skin nourished and beautifully scented. This oil blend is the finest quality available and prevents premature ageing through intense moisturisation. Also available in Jasmine if floral scents are more her thing.


For Husbands + Boyfriends…


For hairy H&Bs why not get them some Beard Tonic? A little of this goes a long way — apply sparingly to palms and rub into beard for softer, nourished facial hair, and moisturised skin underneath. If they are very hairy, then our Men’s Skincare Kit is the thing for them: a boxed gift set including a Tea Tree + Activated Charcoal facial soap to help detox the skin, a Beard Oil to soften facial hair and moisturise the face, and a Beard Balm which acts as a conditioner for facial hair, including rice bran oil to prevent split ends. Perfect beard here he comes! If you are catering for a less hirsute male, our hand letterpressed Numbers Print is guaranteed to be a unique gift. The printing process uses an old Victorian press, which means that no two will be the same. 


If they like geometric shapes… 


If your recipient is a big fan of geometric shapes, like we are, this beautiful Triangle Necklace (available in silver or gold), is great for them. We’re carrying on the shapes theme with this hand screen printed Hexagon Tote Bag, using eco friendly inks in a small workshop in Paris — a guilt free gift! Our amazing Suzanne Antonelli ‘Happiness’ Riso print will add the perfect pop of colour into your shape lovers life with its super bright fluro orange ink.


If they like monochrome…


We have a monochrome obsession (which you can read about here), and if you know someone similar we have the perfect gifts for you! These screen printed pouches, handmade in Paris, are the perfect size for makeup or small items. Available in both galaxy print and dot print. Our signature Hopscotch candles are the ideal black and white minimalist gift, and they smell great too — make sure to get hold one of our limited edition Mulled before they all go! 


We hope this has given you some inspiration for your gift buying this year, but if you’re in need of any advice or would like some help with your decision, then do get in touch.
