When it comes to buying for babies and toddlers at Christmas, I always find it particularly tricky. I mean, it’s not like you can chuck a bottle of white wine or a selection box in a bag and be done with it. Add in the fact that they grow and develop at such a massive rate, meaning you need to know their exact month to be able to buy them something suitable, and the whole thing is just massively overwhelming.
So, I’m sometimes hesitant to add in the extra hurdle of trying to buy sustainably. But it’s ethical gifting week and that means giving you inspiration for every human in your life, including the little ones!
I was pleasantly surprised at how many down right beautiful things I could find that would make incredible gifts, yet also Incorporated sustainable and ethical practices in some way. It seems to be an added bonus that ethical baby shops just know how to make something extremely aesthetically pleasing. It’s all wooden toys, muted colours and, most excitingly for me, the occasional splash of animal print.
If you have a baby or toddler in your life, they’ll probably only care about your gift for five minutes before moving onto the next thing. However, you can rest assured that their parents will love these items.
