Christmas Gift Guide 2017


Welcome to the Green Elephant 2017 Gift Guide

Choosing the perfect gift can be tricky which is why we’ve put together this neat eco gift guide. We’re all about sustainable healthy and ethical choices, so everything you see in this gift guide will have been made or curated with this in mind. We like to think that gift giving is about more than just the gift… It’s about who made it, what’s in it and what good can it do for your special person and the planet.

Everything in the gift guide is available on Green Elephant so you don’t have far to go to find what you need. We hope that what’s on these pages will give you some inspiration, and help you find that special, unique something.
