It’s that time of the year when we want to show our appreciation to the ones we love! We may not be able to plan activity based gifts so I’ve compiled this list of beautiful sustainable gifts your friends and family will love. There are a number of sustainable products under €25 which I’m sure anyone would be delighted to receive as a gift.
