Selecting Christmas presents for our loved ones is not an easy job, especially when we want to shop from eco-friendly, ethical and transparent brands. Of course, when it comes to our children, it is even harder! After all, we want the best for them.
With that in mind, we created our holiday guide with gifts for kids. We selected twenty products from five socially and environmentally responsible brands based in Europe. Our goal: to give you some ideas and inspiration if you are still struggling with finding the best surprises for the little ones in your life.
