Christmas is going to look a little bit different this year, with some of us not being able to spend the festive season with loved ones and family.
We agree that presents are just a small part of Christmas, but they can help bring some joy to what has been a rather underwhelming year (hello understatement).
When doing your Christmas shopping, it’s easy to be drawn into the big retailers, but if you can, shopping small, shopping local and shopping sustainably is a great way to do your bit.
We’ve put together some inspiration for stocking fillers from our fellow B corps. From books, to soap, to fire hose belts (you’re going to have to read down for that one) we’ve found a great selection of gifts to inspire you.
Take a look.
