Christmas Gift Guide

Terrifyingly, Christmas is just around the corner, looming ever-closer like some kind of a tinsel-covered monster. Whether you’re one of those organised people who’s almost finished their shopping, or you’re like us and you panic buy inappropriate gifts at 5.30pm on Christmas Eve, we’ve put together a handy list of gift ideas that are eco-friendly, wallet friendly and great fun…

Fashion Conscience HatSomething cosy
It’s Christmas and it’s freezing outside. Welcome to another British winter! So what better way to spoil your loved ones than with something super cosy from Fashion Conscience? They have a great selection of hats, gloves and scarves for men, women and kids so snuggle  up and get shopping!

TasterlabSomething a bit different 
Buy an experience from Tasterlab and you’ll instantly have a gift to give. There’s a whole host of great Tasters to try, from drawing classes and yoga, to kitesurfing and burlesque lessons. There are even free tasters you can pick up for absolutely nothing. And we all know an experiential gift is much better for the planet that cluttering up your home with a load of tat!

Nigels Eco StoreSomething for everyone
If you want to get a fab Christmassy gift, you can still order online: Nigel’s Eco Store promises to get your gifts to you by Christmas as long as your order is in by December 20. They sell pre-packaged eco gift boxes which makes gift giving nice and simple. They even stock presents for under a fiver, so you can grab lots of great stocking fillers too!

And here’s a little video we watched today that made us feel really Chrismassy…

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
