Books for Wellbeing Fans
The ideal gift for healthy foodies of all sorts, Hemsley + Hemsley’s The Art Of Eating Well offers an enticing array of plant-based and carnivore friendly recipes (always organic, grass fed and free range of course), whilst The Unbakery Book by Megan May is a favourite of both raw foodists and raw food appreciators alike. Amelia Freer’s Eat. Nourish. Grow is the ideal manual for those who are looking for healthy nutritional and lifestyle guidance, alongside mouth watering recipes.

As featured in the Telegraph as a ‘beneficial brew’ for skin, tea lovers, will appreciated the Content Skin Tea. A specially formulated blend of herbal extracts for all skin types, this tea is as delicious as it is good for skin.

For Coffee Fans
If you are trying to encourage a loved one to get a little healthier, our Content ‘Coffee’ is a great way to get that warming belly sensation without the caffeine spike. The Four Sigma Foods Mushroom Coffee with Chaga or Lion’s Mane are also a must for coffee lovers, who don’t want to put strain in their bodies.
Here at Content, raw, organic cacao is one of our favourite antioxidant rich Content Kitchen staples, but did you know when applied topically this scrumptious superfood works wonders for your skin? Below we’ve rounded up a selection of our finest cacao based treats AND skincare to impress all chocolate lovers this festive season. Purchase alone or in succession, so your chocolate lover can create their own cacao ritual…
Know a chocoholic or two? A delicious way to compliment a cookbook or magazine is to throw in the Sweet Virtues Superfood Chocolate Nut Butter (coming soon) – a delicious nut butter stuffed with superfood ingredients including chia seeds, which is perfect for drizzling over bowls of the oatmeal, as a spread, a dip – or straight out of the jar! For hot cocoa lovers instead, look no further than Four Sigma Foods XOCO Blue & Four Sigma Foods XOCO Red – a strong, dark chocolate flavour to satisfy any cravings on a cold, winter day.
For chocolate bar lovers, Raw Halo’s (coming soon) indulgent collection of raw chocolate bars will not disappoint and is one of our all time favourite ways to spread the ‘love’ on birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas alike. The ‘Dark Collection’ is made from a dark and indulgent 76% dark chocolate recipe, while the ‘Pure Mylk’ range is dairy-free and made with cashew nut butter, lucuma powder and pure vanilla. They look just as beautiful on the outside as they do on the inside, thanks to beautiful minimalist colourful packaging.
Cacao is as much a treat for the skin as it is for your tastebuds. For serious chocolate fans, the Amala Rejuvenating Spa Valise contains the best products to indulge in your own at-home cacao ritual thanks to the antioxidant rich addition of cocoa beans in each product (whilst you’re at it, just make sure to sip on one of these!). Another of our favourites is Live Native’s Botanic Earth Antioxidant Mud Mask which is basically a superfood energy ball in skincare form! Made up of antioxidant rich acai, cacao and nourishing spirulina, this one is especially perfect for raw treat connoisseurs. If you don’t think that will be enough to satisfy your giftee’s cacao cravings, try a body ritual of Page Thirty Three’s Lavender Bath Brew which contains raw cacao, followed by May Lindstrom’s The Good Stuff Radiance Oil blended from a combination of cacao, rose, lavender, and ylang-ylang – we think quenches those cacao cravings like no other.
