Looking for Sustainable Secret Santa Gifts this Christmas? Check out some of our favourite items to help you decide what to buy!
It’s that time of year again. The office Christmas party is looming, your school friend meet up is just a week away, and they’re all insisting on Secret Santa Gifts!
As someone who prides themselves on being sustainable and ethical, the words Secret Santa can cause a level of dread not felt since the time you had to explain your choice of being vegan to your ex boyfriends Dad, the local butcher. Secret Santa Gifts are often useless presents that are quite likely to end up in the bin. Adding to the already mounting levels of landfill waste in the UK is something no one wants to do!
It’s not all doom and gloom though. Buying the right present can actually be an opportunity to be both sustainable and to give something back to worthy causes. Take a look below to find our best Sustainable Secret Santa Gift ideas!
