In times past, putting together a "sustainable gift guide" was a bit of a slog. It was honestly pretty difficult to find items that were as chic as they were ethical. And don't even try to factor in affordability, too—anything that was worth having always meant parting with a lot of cash. Good news, then, that all the below 32 items I've found are ideal for the fashion lover, and they just so happen to be sustainable as well. Happily, most of the big online retailers have sustainable sections, making it much easier to find the best stuff around. But if you're looking for smaller UK-based brands, I've got those in there, too.
Expect to find clothing and accessories, with a few choice beauty bits and interiors (because we're all obsessed with homewares). I've divided it up into budgets, as I know everyone is being careful right now, but it also proves my point that just because something is sustainable doesn't mean it has to cost a month's rent. Ultimately, I chose pieces that I would also love to receive in my stocking, so keep scrolling for my favourite sustainable gift ideas.
