CHRISTMAS GIFTING THE SUSTAINABLE WAY- 3 places to shop amazing second-hand gifts this Christmas!

The season of gifting is upon us!! It is important to take into consideration our over consumption of products during the Christmas season while choosing the gifts for our loved ones. 

With over 90 million iPhones bought in the last quarter of 2020, iPhones were one of the highest bought gifts for Christmas. This high demand of products leads to overproduction- using up irreplaceable rare earth minerals. Not kind to our planet 👎

It is important to remember that second-hand does not always mean used, it can also mean brand new items that are out of the retail market, so you get to save more on the retail price.


Here are the top 3 places to buy amazing gifts, second-hand.

1. Vestiaire Collective: 

For the luxury designer fashion gifters, from the infamous Chanel Boy crossbody bags to vintage Rolex watches- you can save up to £1,000 by shopping second-hand on Vestiaire. 

Every product over £500 is sent to Vestiaire by the seller for authentication to ensure that your designer items are exactly as described.. 

The home of sustainable luxury is your best option for authenticated luxury fashion items, where you save on the retail price and give fashion a prolonged life.
