Gifts to ask for this Christmas (that you actually really want)
Countdown: 16 days to Christmas!
Picture this, you are so excited that it’s finally Christmas and the time has come to exchange gifts with your family and loved ones. You can’t wait to see your loved ones’ reactions when they open the presents you got for them and you have no idea what presents were bought for you. You open your presents and feel slightly underwhelmed but you have to act like it’s the best present you ever received. Well, we’ve all been there before.
In a world where shopping is accessible at the click of a button, choosing a memorable gift for someone can be tricky. Of course, receiving gifts during Christmas is special and many people would agree that it’s the thought that counts, rather than the gift itself. We agree with that but feel that it is also important to ask for and choose the right presents for each of your loved ones. This is exactly why we have created this article with 5 the finest festive gifts you can ask for this Christmas that you will actually use and appreciate. Nobody enjoys receiving gifts that they will not use.
*All items mentioned are from sustainable brands with ethical practices, as we are a strong believer in sustainability.

This Glove Boot is made from recycled plastic bottles, which diverts waste from landfills. Great for the environment and great on you! They come in a number of different colours, so choose the one you would wear most often and we are sure this piece will become a wardrobe staple. You can get yours from Everlane today.
- Cashmere Button Poncho
Cashmere products are common Christmas gifts because high-quality cashmere can be expensive and is sometimes seen as a luxury. People love receiving cashmere gifts and hence you should not be shy to ask for it either. It is best to choose the finest quality Cashmere knitwear. We recommend choosing a brand like Alchemy Story that sustainably sources its products and offers the finest quality hand-loomed & naturally dyed pieces, at prices that do not compromise.
