We're all trying to make our Christmas a little more Conscious this year: by avoiding glitter and non-recyclable wrapping paper, unwanted presents, and being careful not to waste food (fat chance of that over at Casa Clothes Doctor!). Well when it comes to eco-friendly gifts, we've got you covered.
We want to show some solidarity to our fellow Brits, by showcasing seven sustainable gift ideas that we love. Our Conscious Christmas Gift Guide is here to help you find the perfect present.
