With the holiday’s fast approaching, gifts are at the forefront of everyones mind; family, friends, partners and that secret Santa who you don’t actually know that well… all bases have to be covered. For our conscious consumer, Christmas can be a conflicting time, it is understandable that having to buy for so many different people may feel like the opposite of your buying habits throughout the year. However LDC’s Christmas gift guide is exactly what you need to ensure you and all of your loved ones (plus your secret Santa) can have a conscious Christmas. 


Christmas is the perfect time of year to show our mum's just how grateful we are. Go for gold with the Signature bee embroidered sweatshirt by Gung Ho (1), crafted from 100% organic cotton, it will make for the best feel good gift.
Opt for another sustainable option with Elm Rd, not like other candles, Elm Rd candles are 100% natural, vegan and cruelty free and with a range of different scents there is something for everyone. Speaking of scents, natural essential oil brand Booming Bob creates organic oils for the body, face and lips as well as their own range of essential oils to use however you wish. Every oil is produced a close to the crop as possible and packaged in a reusable glass bottle for a luxe finishing touch. 


Notoriously hard to buy for, Dad's are usually the unsung hero's of Christmas; clearing the wrapping paper and in charge of carving, they need to be spoilt just as much as everyone else. Show them how much you care with the Olive Green Crew from MG Rivers (1), ethically crafted from merino wool, MG Rivers only works with green energy mills, making them a leader in sustainable knitwear. 
For the hard working Dad's, give them a spa day with the organic mens skincare collection from Scrubd (10); choose from a selection of natural, vegan soaps, oils and creams that will make ideal stocking fillers. 


If you are looking for something for your better half then look no further. Spoil her rotten with with Sofia Lingerie set by Studio Pia (5). A bejewelled set crafted from 24ct gold plated hard-wear and sustainably sourced tulle, it  will make for an extra special gift that she wont want to take off.  Opt for sustainability and style with the Alby phone case by BOTTLETOP (4), made from can pulls, it has been expertly crocheted into a unique design that no one else will have - the perfect present a fashion forward friend. 


Struggling to buy for him? worry not, the LDC gift guide is here, even if he is on your naughty list. Everyone loves a new T-shirt and they don't come better than Llocals (1); based in the Netherlands and true to their name Llocals produces their products locally, supporting businesses and artisans.
