What kind of gifts do you love to give?
Families all have their traditions and ways of doing things at Christmas… including gifts. Some families carefully search out a special something for everyone, or pick names and have a spending limit, some have a themed gift exchange with specific stealing rules, other’s try to win the award for the ‘crying gift’ (giving the gift that is so touching, it makes the recipient cry)… the traditions are endless. No matter your tradition… its time to start thinking about it.
You may not have thought about Norwex when you were making your gift list… but Norwex products make a perfect gift. We all have stuff to take care of and clean… Norwex is in the business of offering superior products that help us take care of what we own in a way that preserves it lifespan and cares for the environment at the same time. Norwex also offers amazing personal care products that are gentle, effective and protective of our skin without any chemicals. Don’t those sound like things people should put on their Christmas list?!
Holiday Helper Specials
This package makes a perfect gift for those who love their vehicle. It includes a Car Cloth that is made of tightly woven microfiber that works with water to leave your vehicle streak free, shiny, without a scratch. The Car Vent Clips and Essential Oils are designed to replace artificial, chemical-laden car fresheners with natural essential oils. The Purifying Blend has a warm and inviting scent of spicy cinnamon, cloves, sweet orange, eucalyptus and a hint of rosemary. Just place a drop or two on the ceramic Car Vent Clip and enjoy. This gift will remove the need for chemicals car cleaners (that often get into our waterways) and chemical car fresheners (which get inhaled by the ones we love).
Towels for Christmas??? Absolutely! This beautiful Grey Chevron Towel Set is even better than the fluffy ones you get in the spa. They are thicker than the regular Norwex towels which means they are even softer and more absorbent (can you believe it?). Norwex towels are made from microfiber containing the self-purifying properties of their Baclock™ agent. This allows you to launder them less often… doesn’t that sound like a luxurious gift?
This gift set is perfect for those who are looking for environmentally-friendly solutions for their kitchen. The Square Bakeware Silicone Lid (9″ x 9″) is made of food-grade silicone and is perfect for covering baked goods (not only to keep them fresh, but also make them easily accessible 🙂 ). The Eggplant Chenille Hand Towel is perfect for those days spent baking or cooking Christmas dinner when you are constantly washing your hands. It is made of super-absorbent, nubby chenille microfiber and has Baclock™ agent to self-purify. The FREE Steel Grey EnviroCloth (Yup, free!) will beautifully maintain your counters as you prepare for Christmas, leaving them streak- and bacteria-free.
Did you know that? Every piece of plastic every created, will be on this earth forever. Mahatma Ghani said, “be the change that you wish to see in the world.” So with that in mind, I asked my team of consultants what their favourite Norwex product was and why. I was excited to see that the Bakeware Silicone Lids were one of the favourites… “Definitely the silicone lids (round and bakeware). They have cut down so much on our use of plastic wrap and tin foil” ~ Stephanie Jones. “My second favourite is the Silicone Lids. I don’t use tin foil when I bake anymore” ~ Shauna Wing. “Silicone lids and snack bags (no longer available). We use so much less plastic wrap and baggies!” ~ Nickey Heidebrecht. I love how making small changes in how we do life, can really impact the environment and our health!
Best Gifts Ever
Christmas is a wonderful time of giving! But sometimes we forget that even the decisions we make at Christmas, even though our hearts are in the right place, do affect the environment and our health. This year, consider how you can bless those you love by considering how your gifts impact the health of the environment and health of your loved one.
Has your family ever done a Green Christmas? Have you ever considered giving untraditional gifts that aren’t made of plastic and require batteries?? Have you ever thought about giving the gift of time or adventure instead of material things?
