Welcome to our Advent Calendar!

sustainable advent calendar

We love Christmas! It is time to be with friends and family, reflect on what meant the year that is about to be finished, see with hope the one starting, and share happiness and joy in so many ways! Shopping is usually part of the equation unless you are very crafty and can create the gifts yourself! That is why we have created this Sustainable Advent Calendar. 

If you feel you need some ideas for your next gifts, just have a look at them. Every day we will be bringing you a product or a service that could be an awesome gift for your loved ones. And if you have questions, or need a helping hand, just count on us. We will be super happy to assist you! Email, Whatsapp, or our web chat, we are here to help you!

Choosing the right present is very important. You want to reflect your values and the values of the person you are gifting. You want them to feel the emotion and love that you host in your heart. I feel now more than ever we care for the stories behind the gifts. Finally, the world comes to realize we are connected, and we appreciate more than ever that human touch.

Let’s create beautiful memories together!

ABOUT OUR SUSTAINABLE CHRISTMAS ADVENT CALENDAR

It is very easy. Every day we will share a new post with ideas and products that could be a good fit. Every day a new button will appear here so you can revisit the whole calendar and catch up with other days in case you missed any.

All the products will follow at least one of our 3S’s or core values:

  • Slow
  • Sustainable
  • Socially Responsible
  • and there is a 4th S… which is Style! But you already know that!

Many people do not want to celebrate this day and may even feel a little sad about not being able to enjoy it for various reasons. This is why we wanted to focus on everyone out there, no matter your relationship status. We are hoping that you are building a relationship with sustainability which means the world to us.

7 FATHER´S DAY GIFT IDEAS- ECO DAD SPECIAL EDITION

Eco Father´s Day Gift Ideas

Father´s day is around the corner and now more than ever it is a good time to appreciate their support and their role in our lives. I love my dad and see how important my husband is for my daughter. You can tell how happy she is in the image on top! (Yes, this is my family! Behind companies, there is always a person that does a little dance when you purchase and that is us!). On this special day, we can gift them something meaningful and practical. Here you have seven gift ideas for all the eco dad´s out there.

As usual, you know we only recommend things that are respectful with our 3 S´s philosophy: Slow Fashion (meaning no mass production and exclusivity), Sustainable Fashion (using natural products that will biodegrade), Socially Responsible (because we believe fashion can be a force for good!). So, now, let’s get to our list!

7 FATHER´S DAY GIFT IDEAS

1. A Toilet Bag, like Henry´s Toilet Bag. This cute bag comes in 2 colors and it is made of vegetable-tanned leather. It has good capacity, so all the shaving products and tools get to be all together. Get yours here! It is only 375 Dhs.

There is another way to gift, by supporting a family in need in these trying times. This is possible in the UAE thanks to Stop and Help- a fantastic initiative of Heather Harris. To help you just need to complete this form. They will arrange to send basic groceries to another father struggling to feed his family. Solidarity is indeed the biggest gift! https://form.jotform.com/201315297386458
And if you want to help even further, share this initiative and tag them with the hashtags #stopandhelp #stopandhelpdads We are one and together we stand!
