Notoriously hard to buy for, teenagers can be very picky, so finding a present that has the added meaning of helping an educational charity like the Eden Project is sure to win you brownie points.
Below, our ideas for Christmas presents for teenagers should make your life a little easier:
Eden Project organic hoody
Our snuggly hoodies are made out of thick super-soft organic cotton so they’ll keep you warm as toast on a cold winter’s day. They’ve got a front pouch for keeping those fingers warm too. Our Eden Project hoodies come in navy and dark green so will go with absolutely anything.
Soap Gift Bag
Our luxury soap gift bags are packed with soaps created especially for the Eden Project by the Trevarno Estate in Helston, Cornwall. The soaps are wondeful to smell and feel great on the skin. The gift set includes a selection of different soaps that harness the properties of avocado, tea tree, cedarwood, orange and calendula.
Grow Your Own Truffle Tree
Budding young gardeners or foodies with an entrepreneurial streak will love this tree. A fine oak, it’s been impregnated with truffle spores so in just a few years your lovely teenager will be able to harvest their own truffles. They might even start trying to sell them back to you!
Eden Project Handmade Journal
Made by hand from Lokta paper in Nepal, these colourful journals are environmentally-friendly and contribute to the economic development of the people who make them. The art of this kind of papermaking goes back over a thousand years. It could be the inspiration your favourite teenager needs to knuckle down to a spot of art themselves.
Recycled Surf Clock
If your teenage son or daughter loves the surf, this tide clock is perfect. Cleverly made out of old vending machine cups – yes, really – the quartz-driven clock tracks the state of the tide. Just think, it could be exactly what they need to help them to get up on time.
Bunch of Mugs
When their friends drop by for a coffee, your favourite teenager will find this bunch of mugs very handy. Their wondeful, inspired design means that carrying three mugs at once is child’s play with no risk of spills. You never know, they may even make you a cuppa.
Milk Chocolate Buttons
A big jar brimming with delicious, organic chocolate buttons made using Dominican cocoa and rich, creamy milk. There are so many in the jar that we’re sure they’ll be shared out and another benefit is that once they’ve gone, your son or daughter will have a handy jar for stashing all their stuff.
We’ve got lots more Christmas gift guides including presents for under-5s, teenagers, keen gardeners and foodies.
