The Good Life Stories Issue 1 Gifting Guide

The GOOD Gifting Guide

Not to panic anyone but it’s less than 11 weeks until Christmas - time to start thinking about shopping?

I know, I know -  Summer was only 2 minutes ago and we haven’t even had Halloween yet but its good to be organised and with everyone’s budgets being stretched thin at the moment, it doesn’t hurt to spread the costs and start a little earlier this year. 

With that in mind we’ve put together a Christmas edit with gifts for everyone under £30 - you can shop the full list here.

Gifts for the Foodie

We have a great section of delicious goodies for your ‘foodie’ friends and family. Our speciality salts and syrups from Nicolas Vahé have been particularly popular in store. Not just for their quality and taste but for the aesthetics of the packaging - making sure they look great on display in any kitchen. We also have artisanal chocolates from  Coco and Land in a variety of flavours - great as stocking fillers.

Give the gift of self care?

Everyone needs a little pamper time and what better way than a luxurious hot bath with some of our Holy Water Apothecary bath salts? What bath is complete without a scented candle to set the mood -  like one of our Earl of East candles which are hand poured in London. Maybe some hand or body moisturiser from Frama or Meraki to finish off the self care session?

Unique homeware finds from around the world.

At The Good Life Stores we have a curated collection of homewares from around the world - chosen specifically for their focus on simplicity, function quality and design. Why not treat a loved one to a homeware find from one of our Scandinavian brands such as 101CPH - the ‘Duck bowls’ have been really popular in store available in a variety of colours and finishes. We also have a great choice of drink ware from Kinto - a Japanese brand that centres around usability, aesthetics and slow living.

Gift boxes

Cant decide what to choose? Why not create a bespoke gift box/ hamper of all  your favourite items for a really personal gift. Our craft, magnetic closure boxes are just £5 and are beautifully presented to create a great gifting experience.


This year choose quality items that will be treasured over quantity, and thanks for shopping small!
