We’ve been hard at work pounding the virtual aisles of ethical retailers everywhere to bring you the ultimate guide to buying stylish sustainable and socially responsible gifts this Christmas. Each and every present we’ve chosen is bound to create a talking point around the tree, with innovative materials like bamboo, upcycled fire hoses and salmon leather, plus covetable accessories made by fair trade producers as far away as Africa and India. Or, support causes closer to home by buying from independent British craftspeople or UK charities offering creative gift ideas that further their brilliant work.

Enjoy exploring all these beautifully-made products and shop with confidence, knowing your purchase helps to support talented artisans, worthy causes and the natural environment. We’d love to know what exciting ethical presents you’ve found this year, so get in touch on Twitter or Facebook and tell us of your discoveries.

And don’t forget that there’s 10% off at People Tree all year long with the code DECNOT10 plus a very exciting giveaway coming up on Friday too. Oh, we do treat you well!
