It's finally Christmas time! Whether you celebrate this tradition or not, we feel that the end of the year is the perfect time to slow down and show your appreciation to the people you love with small gestures or presents - and most of all to yourself. ;)
Gift giving while living a conscious lifestyle can be trickier than you might think. But don't worry, we did most of the work for you and selected 10 perfect sustainable Christmas gifts that we hope you'll love! So let's get started:
