Did you know that we reportedly throw away some 226,800 miles of wrapping paper each Christmas? That’s apparently enough to stretch nine times around the world. While we’re not 100% certain how much of that ends up being recycled, we can safely say that a LOT of what we think can be recycled, can’t be!
This festive season, we’re encouraging everyone to do their bit to reduce the waste caused by Christmas wrapping. Below, we’ve put together some ideas for sustainable gift wrapping that not only looks stylish, but is intended to be kinder to the planet.
The tradition of hanging stockings by the fireplace has been around for centuries. Some say it originated from the story of a recently widowed man who was struggling to provide for his three beautiful daughters. Due to a lack of money for a dowry, it would have been unlikely that the daughters would marry. Rumour has it that St. Nicholas overheard other villagers talking about the family and later filled the girls’ stockings that were drying by the fire with gold coins. With the money, the daughters were able to marry.
Nowadays, the gold coins in our stockings tend to be of the chocolate variety - what a shame! Gold coins aside, we’ve got plenty of ideas to help you fill your stockings, especially those for adults and teens. Take a look at our top picks for £15 and under.
With Christmas fast approaching, we’ve already put together our gift guides for him and for her. That means it's time for the kids! If you’re looking for Christmas gift ideas for children of different ages, look no further. You’ll soon have Christmas all wrapped up!
