Unique & Sustainable Christmas Gift Ideas

How often do you buy something because you’ve read about it online or seen it on social media? It’s become habitual for many to discover new things from digital influencers, whether through reading blogs, watching TikTok and YouTube, or browsing Facebook and IG. Besides, digital influencers have helped us find fabulous emerging designers without stepping foot outside our homes, notably during lockdowns when we couldn’t shop during the Holidays. More people rely on social influencers to enlighten them with Christmas gift ideas from the trendiest luxury brands, emerging labels, and small businesses to Amazon and Etsy.
