Ethical Christmas Gift Guide
It can be tough to think of the perfect gift this Christmas, especially when our lives get in the way of organising our Christmas shopping. Shopping on the high street can be a nightmare when it seems like every other person in the world shares your idea, and trawling through pages and pages of gift ideas online is so time consuming. To save you a bit of trouble and give you a couple of gift ideas as we move in to December I’ve rounded up some of my favourite gifts for him and her.
