I’ve pulled together the ultimate That Festival Life Christmas Gift Guide (or birthdays, or Valentine’s Day or just because!) with over 50 gifts for festival-goers, with festival gift ideas suitable for all of the fest lovers, partygoers & rave professionals in your life. I’ve used over a decade’s worth of festival experience to bring you a list chockablock with absolute festival essentials as well as beautiful wares from independent festival traders themselves!
What Present Should you Get For a Festival Lover!?
This festive season, be the best for our planet and prioritise gifting EXPERIENCES, your time and non-tangible things – like the first item on my list!! The rest of this list of festival gifts is made up of wonderful things to cherish or practical things to use – you’ll find no gimmicks or pointless single-use items here! Where possible I have chosen from small ethical and independent brands – brands that need your support after a summer with no trading.
From festival art to beautiful coffee table books, handmade accessories and eco-friendly cosmetics I’ve gathered some of my favourite things into this epic list of 50 epic gifts for you and yours… plus, I’ve included some handy discount codes exclusively for That Festival Life readers!
