Jo Wood’s Top Gift Picks!

Glamorous Rock ‘n’ Roll royalty and eco-entrepreneur Jo Wood selects her favourite Christmas gift ideas from the People Tree collection.


“My philosophy is about respecting our bodies and our Earth. If we work with nature rather than abusing it, then we will all reap the benefits.”

Jo Wood is a British model, television personality and business entrepreneur. Since a serious illness in 1989, she has followed a solely organic lifestyle, and in 2005 launched her own range of fragrance, bath and body care products, Jo Wood Organics.  We love her products , and they’ve gone on to win many well-deserved awards. Jo has travelled the world, living in Los Angeles and New York, and is now settled in London. Earlier this year in February, Jo released her autobiographyHey Jo’ , published by Harper Collins. Jo is a huge supporter, fan and friend of People Tree – you can read below in her own words what she thinks about People Tree, and see her top Christmas gift picks.

1. Snowflake Alpaca Jumper – My Top Pick!

This is a jumper I’m coveting as a gift for myself! Super soft and warm Alpaca wool, and with a gorgeous Fair Isle pattern, this is knitwear at its finest – it’ll last a lifetime and become a Winter favourite of mine for years to come.

2. Wise Owl jumper

I love this hand knitted owl jumper. Great for getting cosy in this Christmas. Hand made in 100% wool, it’s practical, beautiful and Fair Trade –  the perfect gift for an animal loving girl-friend.


 3. Flower Fitted Dress


This dress is great in both colours. I know it’ll be soft and comfy at the same time as having a touch of elegance. Flattering on curves of all shapes and sizes! The floral print is feminine, and in the red it’s perfect for festive dinner parties – such as those I run as part of Mrs Paisley’s Lashings – a pop-up restaurant driven by the importance of living and eating in a sustainable way.

4. Alexa Oversized Shirt

Alexa PUNK

A great gift for my daughter-in-law, and I love the way it’s been Punk-styled by People Tree. Easy to wear, cool and versatile. Can be dressed up with statement jewellery or kept simple for a casual daytime look

5. Sophia Tuxedo Jacket

Sophia Tuxedo


This is a gorgeous jacket! Smart and chic, it’s an ideal gift for my daughter. The pin stripe turn up cuffs are a great touch, as is the coconut button, and the fact that it’s been hand woven in Bangladesh in 100% cotton.

6. Polar Bear Hat and Mittens


My grand-kids will love these cute accessories! Fun and playful in 100% wool, I know they’ll be good quality as they’ve been hand knitted by skilled artisans in Nepal. A perfect stocking filler, and guaranteed to make them smile.

7. Bright Checked Slippers

checked slipper blue

Great for cosy, festive feet this winter! I’ll be buying a few pairs to give to various friends and family – you can’t go wrong with such a practical gift. They have the added charm of being hand-knitted, as well as being fun and brightly coloured.
