You’ll love this beautiful double-layered beanie, especially now it’s getting colder!
This knitted beanie contains Polylana® which is a low-impact alternative to 100% acrylic fibre. This means that it takes less energy and water to make the beanie, saving 5.5 litres of water per hat. Also, 2% of the proceeds of each Impact product sold will be donated to Water.org.

Tear it, plant it and watch it grow! Made in Britain, there’s a wide range of flower, vegetable, herb and tree seeds available.

This little cracker doesn’t include the hat or the bad jokes (we’ll leave those to you), but it does come filled with three of the nation’s favourite Quality Street chocolates.
8. Hot chocolate
This is the hot chocolate survival kit you never knew you needed. This plastic-free gift pack contains x2 mini shortbread biscuits, x1 pack of mini marshmallows and x1 hot chocolate sachet. Perfect for a mailing campaign as they fit right through a letterbox. Snuggle up under your new blanket and enjoy the perfect cup of cocoa this winter.
Feel good gifts
9. Ocean bottle
Hydration is a gift in itself, but if you can also support a worthwhile brand, quenching your thirst has never felt better. With the sale of every ocean bottle, together we'll be able to fund the collection of 11.4kgs of plastic (the equivalent of 1000 plastic bottles).

13. HARMONY all seasons cloth
Beautiful as a shawl, a blanket on the sofa, or as a luxurious (hammam) cloth. This multi-purpose Harmony is a soft and stylish fabric. The cloth is handmade by women in a small Turkish village and consists of recycled textiles, combined with soft unbleached cotton. Harmony symbolises harmony between man and nature.
