Sustainable Christmas: 10 small business gift ideas for interiors

in Christmas

It’s that time of the year again, Christmas is coming!
And even though it will be different in many ways this year, it’s still going to be a chance to take a break and enjoy the little pleasures of the holiday season.

One of them is certainly giving, be it time, love or carefully chosen gifts.
As usual, DforDesign gift guide is an occasion to highlight sustainable designs. And this year, it’s focused on independent creators and smaller brands.

I hope you’ll find some good inspiration!
