8 second hand gifts to put on your Christmas wish list

Who ever said that a Christmas gift has to be new? I’d like to make the case for second hand gifts.

Each year, UK households bin about 300,000 tonnes of clothing, meaning that these items end up seeing their bitter end in a landfill. Unless you’re 100% positive that you’ll still love that Zara top five years from now, it is far less harmful to opt for a second hand alternative. What’s more, buying second hand is nearly always less expensive than buying new, meaning this is a win for the ole coin purse as well as the planet.
