With summer officially over, it’s time to put away the swimsuits and SPF, and get ready for candles and all things cosy as the season changes with an autumn gift box. Soon, the clocks go back which means we get an extra hour of rest but darker evenings. It indicates that winter is well and truly on the way and it’s time to start prepare for the colder weather. We’ve put together a list of things to stock up this autumn, including a candle, chocolate and natural skincare.

First, we’re starting with our White Clay Wax Burner. Everyone loves a good candle to get cosy during autumn and winter, so we decided to ramp it up slightly. The burner houses a space for tea lights in its base then heats and melts scented wax cubes in the vessel above. As a result, lovely warming aromas are released in the home. It is great for creating your own aromatic blends by mixing a range of wax melts and essential oils. Additionally, it’s a stylish addition to any home.
We have two hand poured wax melts to choose from; Jasmine & Honeysuckle Soy Wax Melt and Velvet Rose & Oud Soy Wax Melt. Both will release beautiful smells into any room and have a sprinkling of dried botanicals to compliment the scents, making them pretty to look at as well! Because of this, they are great gifts for autumn home décor.
Continuing with the autumn home décor, we think a dried flower bouquet from our Bookblock Florists is a great gift as it can be re-used for years. Our Banksia Large Dried Bouquet fits that autumnal aesthetic perfectly. It is an elegant bouquet with a gorgeous colour scheme of deep reds derived from the dried banksia and red Broom Gloom. This is highlighted by golden Nigella Orientalis and delicate White Delphinium.
The handmade bouquet also includes refreshing Eucalyptus greens and various grasses to give it the extra pop of natural colour. Its simplicity makes it perfect for any home and makes a beautiful addition to any autumnal gift box.
Next, we’re getting into the Halloween spirit with Savoury Pumpkin Seed & Cranberry Biscuits. The seeds in this mix are specially selected to compliment the fruity cranberries, so are a savoury moment to savour! These heavenly biccies are a perfect match with a hot and spicy cheese and work brilliantly in an autumnal gift box and something to munch on for those scary film evenings!
For a perfect pair, our new tea range has yummy, comforting teas to help keep you healthy during the transition into the colder days and nights. We have our Mum & Baby Tea, Devon Blend Green Tea, Somerset Blend and Lancashire Blend Black Breakfast.
One of our great gifts for mum, our Mum & Baby Tea with Fennel, Anise, Bee Balm & Cumin is wonderful. It contains a balanced blend of herbs and spices known for their calming properties and digestive support. Great for breastfeeding mums with babies suffering from colic or wind.
The Devon Blend is a mix of organic green tea, hibiscus and blackberry. Packed with antioxidants, this subtle fruity blend makes for a perfect mid-morning tea. The uplifting tea bags produce a gorgeous light pink coloured tea.
Our Somerset Blend with peppermint and lemon balm is designed for winding down. Naturally caffeine free, the organic peppermint helps with indigestion and is a natural pain reliever. The lemon balm also reduces stress and anxiety, and improves sleep.
Lastly, the Lancashire Blend Black Breakfast Tea is a beautiful blend of Sri Lankan Ceylon and Turkish Rize tea. The Ceylon tea leaves are intensely flavoured with citrus tones, whilst the Rize introduces a gentle sweetness.
Our last autumnal gift box idea for you is our Älska Botanical Facial Steam. It’s a beautiful blend of roses, marigold, chamomile, lavender and cornflowers to help open up your pores and promote circulation. This is a perfect, relaxing solution for those gloomy days ahead. Take five to ten minutes of your day to close your eyes under the steam and switch off.
We hope this has given some ideas for you and your loved ones to keep going and breeze through the cold mornings and nights with ease. Build your own box of autumnal goodies with our Create a Gift Box section to treat yourself or a special someone.
