The Hot List: Fashion and beauty ideas to put on your Christmas list

If you ask nicely, you might find these under the tree (Picture: Metro.co.uk)

By this time of year, Santa’s not the only one making a list and checking it twice.

Yep, being asked by loved ones for a Christmas present wish list is lovely, but also a bit of a faff.

There’s so much choice out there, what should you put down?

This week’s Hot List is presenting some more sustainable options you could ask for (or nab for someone else).

From eco-friendly dental care to jewellery you’ll keep forever, here are our top picks:

Preloved, Reloved collection by FatFace

Fashion brand shifts to thrifty (Picture: Fat Face)

High five to the folks at FatFace, who have just launched their first retail preloved partner store with second-hand fashion pioneers Thrift+.

Called ‘Preloved, Reloved’. It can be found in the sale section of the FatFace website, meaning customers can choose between shopping new or from high-quality second-hand stock instead, priced from just £10.

The Humble Co. interdental brushes

Sink your gnashers into these brushes

We’re fixated with The Humble Co, which makes dentist-designed bamboo dental bits and bobs including great interdental brushes (the ones you clean the bits between your teeth with) that are usually mostly single-use plastic.

Humble’s work every bit as well but, being biodegradable, they’re so much better for the world — and cheaper too.

Buy it for £2.67 from Boots

Fussy Natural Deodorant

Smells like Christmas

Are you feeling festive enough to want to smell like a Christmas tree? Try a deodorant made from (unloved and unwanted) Christmas trees — ‘those on a wonk, the wrong shade of green, missing a branch or two…’

Developed in partnership with a tree wholesaler and essential oil distiller in Norfolk.

Buy it from Fussy

Lucia Hall Heart padlock necklace

This is far from a pain in the neck

I’m firmly adding this heart padlock necklace by Lucia Hall to the Christmas list. Designed and hand-made in the UK from 9ct gold, it’s an investment piece you’re sure to love for decades.

Buy it for £210 from Lucia Hall

Yoni Moon Milk

The bright side of the moon

The Yoni Moon Milk drink is the stuff of legend at London’s Glow Bar and now you can make your own wherever you are.

Containing cacao, fiery ginger and gut-friendly adaptogenic shatavari, it’s designed to support women wherever they are in their cycle. Each gift kit contains an electric whisk and enough powder to make ten Moon Milks.

Buy it for £50 from Glow Bar

Weleda body oil range

All oiled up

Holistic medicine believes that applying high-quality organic body oils over winter forms a protective covering and gives a warming and invigorating effect — especially beneficial as we suffer colds and viruses.

Weleda’s range of oils, including the highly nourishing Sea Buckthorn, are like a blanket in a bottle.

Buy it for £19.95 from Weleda

Elizabeth Scarlett Tiger Print Pyjamas

Tiger feet ideal Christmas jim-jams

It’s pyjama season and few are more cheering than these tiger print numbers from Elizabeth Scarlett.

Hand illustrated and made from 100% cotton, which supports the Better Cotton Initiative, they can even be monogrammed with three initials for an extra £16, making them a perfect Crimbo gift.

Buy it for £75 from Elizabeth Scarlett
