Nobody believes in the magic of Christmas quite like children. Spending time with them can take a season that I already love and make it even more special. It’s the only day you’ll get me out of bed with a smile on my face before 7am, ready to watch them absolutely loose their minds when they see what Father Christmas has left just for them.
Luckily, I’ve got a family full of kiddies. I’ve got a younger sister who is 7, a God Daughter who is 5 and my Mum is a foster carer who is currently looking after three young boys. So, I get to see my fair share of little excited faces!
This year, whilst buying all of their presents, I’ve tried my best to be a bit more ethically conscious. After all, they’re bound to get mountains of brightly coloured plastic over the festive season. Whilst I certainly haven’t bought 100% of my presents as completely zero-waste and sustainably sourced, I have tried my best.
Here are some of things I found along the way that have strong ethical values, without loosing any of the “fun”.
