Many of you may know Aoife, she is the Manager of our Exeter shop and whilst we have been closed, she has been super busy packaging all your online orders and getting them out to you! If you have met Aoife you know she will always make you smile and it’s always a joy to work with her. So I thought I would find out what her 5 favourite ethical gifts in store are right now, and what she plans to gift this season! Aoife shares with us her 5 favourite ethical gifts at Sancho’s right now. From bamboo underwear to cruelty free nail polish...
Lefrik backpacks - My faves are the Black and Olive! I was gifted the Black scout last Christmas from my Auntie and has been one of my favourite pieces from Sancho's ever. I would love to gift my mum a backpack. She loves outdoor walks in all weathers and the Scout is such a great size for a day to day bag - take a jacket/snacks/water for a hike - being waterproof will protect whatever is in there no matter what the weather. Also it is big enough to take bits for a night away or for doing little food shops. I always overload mine and it can hold quite a bit of weight! Shop now
My fave colours are Olive and Pink! I have some already and they just feel so special and a treat to wear - wish I could wear them every day! I think they are so flattering and feel wonderful against your skin. I have loved mixing and matching the different colours too. Shop now
I would gift my Sister Jasmine the Lela 3 way hammered brass earrings, I never see Jasmine without earrings and I love the versatility of being able to wear them in 3 different ways (3 gifts in 1!) They are such a beautiful design that they would be great for day to day or special occasions. I also think the brand is amazing - Female founded/Black owned/ First Jewellery brand in the UK to be B Corp Certified! It’s also an extra special touch that they have been hammered by hand and made with Recycled Brass. Shop now
I love the whole range but I own the Hi-waist and Sport styles which I love, but in particular I think the Sleep shorts look amazing! Shop now
What's your favourite Christmas tradition?
Having time with my family - in particular preparing and eating the Roast dinner together!
What tradition would you change?
Over consumption, the amount of waste that’s produced and the pressure to over spend!
