5 Ways To Shop More Mindfully

With the festive season right around the corner and Black Friday sales approaching, the excitement of getting a great deal can sometimes stop us from shopping mindfully. Of course, we want to make our loved ones feel special with thoughtful gifts under the tree (and maybe a treat for ourselves too), but it’s also important to make sure we’re being conscious of the purchases we’re making. 

We know that discounts during this time can make the cost of Christmas shopping more manageable, but it can feel impossible to keep to your shopping list with so many offers available. So, we’re here to share with you 5 ways you can shop more mindfully this holiday season.

Set Your Intentions

Before diving into the Black Friday discounts, take a moment to set your intentions. Reflect on what you’re looking for, whether that’s a gift for a loved one or a treat for yourself. The best way to do this is by writing a shopping list of items before the sales begin, so you’re not distracted by the discounts. By setting your intentions, you can stop any impulse purchases and stick to your original list. 


Quality Over Quantity

With so many offers landing in your inbox, it's easy to become enticed by the discounts and purchase more for less. We believe when shopping mindfully that quality over quantity is key. Christmas is one of the biggest times of year for waste, so making sure you’re buying quality gifts that last, rather than an abundance of disposable items, is the best way to be more thoughtful with your purchases.

Shopping Sustainably


Mindful shopping goes hand in hand with sustainable choices. Support brands that share your values and demonstrate a commitment to being responsible. All of our candles and diffusers are completely plastic-free & recyclable, we use renewable energy and our deliveries are made using a carbon-neutral carrier. Also, for every order this Black Friday we shall be planting 20 trees with our partners Ecologi to help offset carbon. 

Gift thoughtfully

By taking the time to listen to your loved one’s wishlist, you can select gifts that are not only appreciated, but also serve a meaningful purpose. This targeted approach ensures that your purchases won't end up unused or unwanted. Mindful gift-giving is about showing thought and care, and when you know what people would really love for Christmas, you can make more sustainable choices that align with their needs.

Express Gratitude

Practicing gratitude is an essential part of shopping thoughtfully. When we shop with gratitude, we appreciate the privilege of being able to make choices and shop for ourselves and our loved ones. This mindset shift allows us to choose products that support our values and wellbeing, rather than buying impulsively. Gratitude brings a sense of contentment and reduces the urge to chase after material items, which is key to shopping mindfully.
