Christmas is a wonderful time of year, where we all gather to exchange gifts and enjoy time together. And whilst it’s a lovely time of year, it is also incredibly wasteful; from the copious amounts of wrapping paper to gifts that aren’t really ethical or eco-friendly.
I’m all about putting a lot of thought into a gift that I know will be loved, whether it’s something I buy or make. It’s really important to me that items I gift will last, are useful and/or can also encourage a greener lifestyle.
Making gifts is a favourite thing of mine, but not everyone has the time, the skill or knows where to begin. So I’ve put together a Christmas gift guide of items ranging from natural skin care to items that’ll help your giftee live a little greener. The items listed are things we’ve personally used as a family, or that have come highly recommended from friends. Enjoy!
