2017 Ethical & Luxurious Holiday Gift Guide

The Holidays and Christmas are right around the corner - it's our favorite time of year. From decorating to baking, family gatherings and gift giving...
The perfect gift is hard to come across and shopping can be stressful, especially when you're ethically minded. We have compiled a list of our top 10 favorites this season, from other luxury, ethical brands, in almost every category. Whether you are looking for that one special something, or multiple gifts, we've got you covered.
Although we are usually talking about sustainability, zero waste and slow fashion, we also understand that we sometimes want to splurge and purchase something fun and luxurious. In doing so, we can also make smarter decisions and still shop ethically. Everyone enjoys pretty things, but let's make sure we are choosing pieces we love and want to cherish and keep for as long as we can.
Ethical is the new luxury. Handmade is the new luxury.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holiday! Xoxo
