2019 Christmas Gift Guide: Sustainable and ethical gifts

The Ultimate Sustainable Christmas Gift Guide: Fair-trade, eco-friendly, ethical and

sustainable Christmas gifts for everyone on your list!


Let’s get one thing very clear before we dive into this post: I don’t hate Christmas.

I’m not here to ruin the day for you or rant to you about how the holiday is all about capitalist greed, because I’m basically the human incarnation of Buddy the Elf. I bloody love Christmas and I always will, no matter how far along I am on this eco-living journey of mine. 

However, I think we can all agree that December is a pretty wasteful time of the year. It’s twinkly and magical and gingerbread-scented, yes. But it’s certainly not the most sustainable month.

Making more ethical and eco-friendly choices as a consumer is a challenge all year round, but making those choices is even more tricky when you need to buy presents for Aunt Maureen and the secret Santa at work. So, I totally wouldn’t blame you for going down to your local Primark and picking up the first pair of fluffy socks you see and a bath set.

Been there. Done that. Will probably end up doing it again this year when it gets to the 23rd and I realise I’ve forgotten someone. 

However, that doesn’t mean that we can’t try to be better. I think it’s important that we all do as much as we physically and financially can to support ethical and sustainable companies, but especially at such a wasteful time of year. So, I wanted to make it as easy as possible for you all by taking the search out of your present buying.

In the guide below I’ve bought together a whole host of items perfect for gifting, but with the sustainable and ethical morals to make them worth investing in. Whether it’s low-waste packaging, cruelty-free cosmetics, independent businesses or companies that give back in some way, each and every one of these gifts comes from companies that actually deserve your money this festive season.
