Christmas gift ideas from your local independent health store

Looking for advice on natural health and wellbeing? Your local independent health store can offer a wealth of expertise. This month we talk to Stephanie Caley, a medical herbalist and owner of Caley’s Apothecary in Wymondham, Norfolk.

Independent health stores like ours are a great place to shop for Christmas gifts because customers can find present ideas that are a little bit unusual and not run of the mill. It’s also good to support small local businesses!

Festive fragrances

At Caley’s Apothecary we stock a lot of eco-friendly, natural, organic and plant-based products, which make great presents. If you are looking for gift ideas for loved ones who have an interest in health and wellbeing or the environment and sustainability then we have plenty of suggestions! Our candles and wax melts are made from natural wax infused with botanicals and are vegan and pet-friendly. We have a Christmas gingerbread candle, which will make for a lovely festive gift, but we stock other fragrances such as peony and rose and jasmine and gardenia. The candle labels can be planted in the ground and will grow into flowers for an extra surprise.

Gift sets

Our gift sets offer plenty of inspiration for Christmas gifts. There’s our Organic Tea Blends selection, our Organic Herbal Favourites tea selection and we also have a Tea Lovers’ gift set for one person or two. The Tea Lovers’ sets come with infusion cups that contain a removable glass infuser, so you have everything you need for a warming cup of herbal tea. Natural beauty fans will appreciate our Time for Beauty gift set, which contains a jar of our Frankincense and Rose face cream as well as a bottle of organic argan oil. For something extra special, the Luxe version comes with a rose quartz facial roller. Our Time to Relax gift set is great for anyone who needs a bit of stress relief as it features bath salts, lavender essential oil, two herbal teas and a tea ball. We also stock an extensive range of essential oils, base oils and flower waters, as well as diffusers and DIY skin cream kits.

Eye-catching crystals

Our range of lamps made from amethyst crystals are absolutely stunning – even more so when lit up. We also stock wind chimes and coasters made from agate in a range of eye-catching colours. Our crystal pendants and bracelets would make perfect gifts for someone special at Christmas. Our Himalayan salt lamps give a warm glow to any room while our crystal tealight holders make beautiful ornaments.

These are just some suggestions for Christmas gifts, but we are happy to make up hampers for our customers if they are looking for something truly unique and personal. Just get in touch with your requirements and we’re happy to help! Wishing all readers of Your Healthy Living a happy and healthy Christmas.
