At Christmas we celebrate love, and since it is very hard to show our appreciation towards our loved ones in the form of material goods, we tend to go a little overboard.
We are here to help with staying focused on sustainability and the protection of our environment during the hectic Holiday preparations and gift shopping.
Here are our five tips on how to have a sustainable and green Christmas!
1. A personalised gift is the best gift!
The best you can do is gifting your loved ones with items they'll like for sure, so that they end up using it after the Holidays, too. This way it will not end up as nondegradable waste.
Nowadays it became easier to find out personal information about eachother, whether it's one's favorite band, movie or food. You'll surely find something for anyone in our huge collection!
2. If you have run out of ideas, then get them ANYTHING!
The concept that Gift vouchers are impersonal and uncreative is long gone. On the contrary, our Gift Cards are extremely popular. Thy're available in any value you choose, and with them you give the gift of freedom of choice to your loved ones!
3. Vintage: always a sustainable choice
If you decide to surprise your friends and family with a vintage treasure, then you give the gift of a new life to a previously owned garment, therefore you recycle fashion. This is not only a way to give a sustainable gift, but also a way to give a really unique and one-of-a-kind one. Not to mention that our gigantic Holiday ugly sweater collection has something for everyone!
4. Choose quality!
Another sustainable tip for Christmas shopping is to get something that will stay with your loved one for the longest possible time. A quality, reliable brand is the perfect choice as it will last for long years. A pair of Martens or Native boots or a Fjallraven backpack will surely make anyone happy!
5. Help good causes with the gifts you give!
You have the chance to support three charitable foundations when you visit our store on Dohány street. The unique and beautifully crafted pins of the Hungarian Ornithological and Bird Conservation Society, the cute greeting cards of the Szent Ferenc Animal Shelter Foundation that feature Greyhounds and have a special Christmas collection and the small hand-painted notebooks of the Hugarian Down Foundation are all something that can be perfect gifts for anyone. By purchasing these beauties you support these organizations.
+1. Pay attention to the details!
Christmas is not only about the gifts, as sustainability is not only about what you get for your loved ones either. Reusable and recycled materials are also very important when it comes to gift wrapping and decorating. Our favorite trick is using a vintage scarf as gift wrapper. Why shouldn't the packaging be part of the gift?
Care about our Earth as a gift theis Christmas and avoid mass produced and environmentally harmful goods. Instead, put meaningful, personalized and sustainable gifts under the tree.
