AD| Christmas Gift Guides for Grown Ups!

Christmas Gift Guides for Grown Ups!  At this time of year we are often sent a selection of what’s new in the shops that is perfect for presents at Christmas. We like to put them all together in appropriate lists and today is the turn for gifts for the grown ups!


Made by Coopers

Made by Coopers is a modern apothecary brand crafting natural products to boost and balance mental and emotional well-being.

The brand was formed after the founder, and now apothecary expert Clare, found solace from her all-consuming anxiety disorders in essential oils and powerful plants. Clare’s journey took her to India and back, where she learnt her craft, and found her ‘cure’, and at that moment she wanted to share her knowledge with anyone she could – so Made By Coopers began.

What makes every single Made By Coopers product different is:

  • It’s full of clean, nutrient-rich essential oils and botanical ingredients.
  • It’s free from parabens, SLS’s, sulphates, mineral oil, artificial colours and synthetic fragrances.

Forget about vacuuming for months at a time with the Clean Base® Automatic Dirt Disposal that allows the Roomba i5+ robot vacuum to empty itself into an AllergenLock™ bag that captures 99% of pollen and mold and holds up to 60 days of cleanings.  
  • Cleaning according to your schedule: Worried the relatives will arrive earlier than expected? With iRobot’s latest home intelligence software, the Roomba i5+ takes time to learn how you like to clean and automatically gives you personalised suggestions, factoring in estimated cleaning times – meaning you can get a clean in with peace of mind that it will be completed ahead of their arrival. 
  • Navigates with care: The holidays are about getting together – but with extra people comes extra mess! The Roomba i5+ uses state-of-the-art floor tracking sensors to navigate your home in neat rows, adapting as it cleans to various floor types such as hardwood and carpet. To add to this, integrated sensors tell the robot where it can and can’t fit – meaning it won’t get stuck under furniture, counters or even low-hanging Christmas trees!
