Gift Guide: For a Waste Free Christmas

Christmas is a time for giving, but it’s also a time for over consumption and waste. Here at The Vendeur HQ we want to have a happy Christmas surrounded by friends and loved ones, without the guilt of pointless waste. That’s why we have put together a selection of carefully curated gift guides just for you..

Experiences For a Waste Free Christmas

We’re all talking about how we can produce less waste, and Christmas is a good time to start flexing those waste free muscles. We think the best way to do this is through experiences. That’s why we have put together a guide to the best Christmas gift experiences. Why not treat someone special to a luxurious afternoon tea? Or a cooking class at the famous Daylesford Farm? It’s a thoughtful way to gift that we guarantee won’t be lining a bin or down the Charity shop any time soon.

Awaken Facial at Bamford Spa – treat your hard working friend to a luxurious but speedy facial at Bamford’s Haybarn Spa. The experience is calming and rejuvenating. They will thank you for it!

Afternoon Tea for Two at Petersham Nurseries – for an excitingly different gift, take someone special to Petersham Nurseries for an idyllic afternoon tea. Their seasonal menus always feature traditional English tea traditions, plus a few exotic treats.

12 month Artfund National Art Pass – this is definitely the gift that keeps on giving. An Art Pass is a must for the culture vulture in your life. The year long pass allows free entry to 240 museums, galleries and historic houses around the UK. Plus discounts on exhibition tickets.
