I’ve got another ethical Christmas gift guide for you today, full of ethical Christmas gift ideas for her.  Apologies that it’s still only November but I’ve heard some people like to plan ahead!  ;)  As always I’ve kept things budget-friendly – nothing in this guide that costs more than £35.

Ethical Christmas Gift Guide 2014

I thought I’d post some ethical Christmas gift guides as while buying less stuff or making handmade Christmas presents are always a good idea, sometimes neither option is entirely suitable.  Especially when you have friends and family that live further afield or you’d rather give a gift rather than money or time (some more thoughts on that next week, which will be of interest to anyone looking to have a less commercial Christmas – keep your eyes peeled next Monday!).

With that in mind, I’ve created a few ethical gift guides that I’ll post throughout this week.

Ethical Homewares Christmas Gift Guide

For today’s ethical Christmas gift guide, I’ve focused on ethical homewares that will keep your loved one’s homes cosy, bright and warm over the winter months.  I’ve mostly looked to UK-based independent makers via Etsy but some other favourites have crept in too!

2.  Floral Fairtrade Lantern (£10) from Run Native

4.  Hedgehog Cushion* (£18) by Robin and Mould via Etsy UK – hand-printed in Wiltshire with love!

5.  Cable & Cotton Lights (from £29.95) – ethically made in Thailand.

10.  Hemp Peacock Cushion Cover (£29) from Little House in Town.  Fairtrade and sustainable.
