Although Christmas is set to be a little different this year, we can still bring some festive joy and positivity with the perfect gift for our loved ones. As you know, I’m all about bringing the positive and tropical vibes to everyone’s lives - and Christmas is no different! Christmas isn’t usually associated with palm trees and hibiscus flowers, but why not?! I’ve put together my ultimate tropical Christmas gift guide with ideas for unique gifts so that you can start ticking people off your list this year, no matter your budget. Curated to include a range of gifts that are inspired by tropical plants, Caribbean ingredients and bright vibrant colours, find uplifting and original gifts for everyone in your life.

For those in your life that have a love for everything paper! Stationery lovers will thank you for their notebook with a tropical twist, from the colourful Palm Tree Notebook to the Monstera Notebook - all filled with recycled paper - perfect for writing their notes, plans and lists.
