A Christmas gift list powered by Bulb

Shopping small is more important than ever this year. These Christmas gift ideas are all from independent businesses, which are powered by Bulb’s green energy, too.

Like everything else this year, Christmas shopping will be a little different. While popping to our local high street might not feel the same, this is the perfect time to support small businesses online or, if you’re able to, in store. 

If you’re doing your holiday shopping from home, we’ve put together some recommendations for great gifts you can purchase from your sofa. From a mystery cheese selection to a mug that saves bees, we’ve got a gift for everyone. Keep scrolling for our feel good Christmas list.

A chocolate bar that saves a rainforest

Bulb members help to fund important conservation work in the Gola rainforest. Among other things, the project supports local communities through cocoa farming along the forest edge. These organic cocoa beans get handcrafted into delicious 70% dark chocolate bars here in the UK. 

A mystery cheese selection

Love cheese, but can never decide what to get? Try this selection of delicious offcuts from the Cheese Shop in Nottingham. With 1.2kg of the good stuff, it’s the perfect way to try new cheeses while helping them to cut down on food waste.
