“Green” Christmas gift guide

Being green or sustainable at Christmas can be really tough. We’re here to help with Reviva’s one-stop guide to gift ideas that won’t cost the earth.

Sustainable Christmas gifts for kids

Charity and reuse shops are a treasure trove of sustainable gift ideas that are also budget-friendly. Gift ideas include, second-hand ride on toys, toddler toys, trucks and machinery, plush toys, remote-control toys and even books and activities. The great thing about second hand is that it costs a fraction of the cost of new. Imagine a full set of book series in great condition (sometimes new), for the price of a single book.

Sustainable Christmas gifts for the bookworm

We all have at least one in our lives, the bookworm. The person that loves to read, to explore new places in their mind. The one with the urge to explore, to understand and to transform. This Christmas, finding the perfect gift for the book lover in your life doesn’t have to cost the earth. Pop into your local, reuse or charity shop to explore quality, near new (or brand new) books from every genre imaginable. Whether you’re searching for a series, a best-seller or something a bit quirky or unique, your local second hand shop is the perfect place to discover.
