Here at Jelly, we love to get in the holiday spirit! There is nothing better than that feeling you get when you’ve picked out the perfect gift for someone close to you. In recent years, the shift to giving more sustainable gifts has been top of mind for a lot of us. Gone are the days of filling a stocking with meaningless trinkets! These days we love to support local, gift amazing experiences, and above all, ensure we’re spreading the word about eco-friendly and sustainable brands. Here are some of our favourites that we’ve had the chance to work with recently here at Jelly!

The chic and elegant dishware at Nugu make these sets an amazing gift. Nugu is all about building a greener future, with each item being ethically and sustainably handmade by Indigenous artisans in India.

Not only can you find some amazing pre-loved gift options at MCC, but they also provide you with many easy ways you can make a huge impact on those in need this holiday season.
