For this last in my installment of ethical Christmas gift guides, I’ve focused on babies and toddlers. As the parent of a small child, I really find older kids and teenagers so difficult to buy for. If you’re looking for inspiration for older kids I did put a guide together last year that included ethical gift ideas for teenagers that I’m finding hard to better!
And if you’ve stumbled on this post via a search engine, do check out my 2021 eco-friendly gift guide, for up-to-date ethical recommendations!
