Here comes Santa Clause, here comes Santa Clause. Sadly Santa can’t do all our Christmas shopping for us. If you are struggling for some eco friendly Christmas gift ideas for friends and family we have a few suggestions for you. We are thinking, hand-made, independent, eco and ethical conscious products. Here’s COSSAC’s favourite gifts ideas:
For your quirky friends - Electrik Nan
We can’t get enough of London based Ania Placzkiewicz’s knitted wonders with Elektrik Nan. Ania can knit anything from a pop-art jumper, a Moschino outfit to a simple handbag or bobble hat in the fabulous Wool and the gang fabrics and wools. Our pick for the eco-conscious gift list has got to be Ania’s knitted Tesco bag. Very fitting with the recent anti plastic bag laws in the UK to help reduce waste. Now you can carry your groceries in eco-friendly knitted style. Prices available on request.
For your blogger friend – COSSAC high neck sleeveless top
They always look stylish and are impossible to buy for. Get your fashion blogger friend something they can pose in with the COSSAC high neck sleeveless top, £56. Easy to wear, it adds a style statement to a simple outfit this winter.
For the men in your life - Ten Tree
You might of already heard of these guys Ten Tree. They have been taking the eco fashion world by storm with their tree friendly concept. For every Ten Tree garment sold, a tree or two will be planted – how cool is that. They started off with the hats making a buzz in the celebrity and social media world and the garment has now become a staple and classic to the brand. If you are shopping for a brother, boyfriend or husband the Voyager bobble hat or whispering Violet Peak Cap are great eco friendly gift option for just $29.99 and of course the extra gift of planting a few trees on their behalf.
