While most of us are more conscious consumers, Christmas can test our environmentally-friendly credentials. However, it doesn’t have to. Take a look at these sustainable alternatives to some festive favourites.


Chase and Wonder’s first ever range of Christmas Crackers are designed to elevate your table this Christmas. Each Cracker is hand rolled and filled with a hat, a joke, and a candle. £55,


Make sure your tree enjoys a fine foundation with this square wicker tree skirt. Lightweight with a natural finish, the sustainable wicker design can be used year after year. £54.99,


This grapevine wreath kit comes with everything you need to create your own festive wreath. The only things you’ll need are a pair of scissors, a glass of mulled wine. £38,


Handcrafted paper Christmas decorations hark back to simpler times and with their earthy colours these lanterns will bring a natural feel to your festive decor. £14.95 each,


Wrapping paper is often non-recyclable, which is why we love this environmentally friendly version. The Boho Red design is printed on uncoated paper and is 100 per cent recyclable. £2.80 (inc gift tag),


Paper tape is the easy and eco-friendly way to wrap. It can be cut or torn from the roll, it’s strong and can be used on almost any wrapping material. An ideal alternative to plastic tapes. £5,
