MOTTA LIVING... It's our new site ♥ ♥

If you're looking to be more planet-aware this Christmas then DesRes is definitely the place to shop. Our whole ethos around our products is that they are for-keeps. That means we only stock products that are meant to last. Both in terms of quality and that they will outlast any interior fashions and trends. Our eco Christmas gift guide also looks at what other independent retailers have to offer as well.

We think it's important to consider our impact on the world around us but that doesn't mean we cannot be stylish, too. This is why we have our Green and Kind Credentials. It's why your products from us will always come shipped in pre-loved packaging.

Here is our Christmas gift guide to the best eco and ethical gifts from independent retailers:

Heart Candle Holder - £11

This cute candle holder will show your love to that special person in your life. It's made from wood, wicker, and glass. Not a spot of wasteful materials used in its creation. And it gives a real cosy, homely addition at this time of year.

Wool Flower Pot - £16

Wool is one of the most sustainable materials available. It grows happily on sheep, who keep the land all trim. It's naturally wicking, and it is biodegradable. Pop a beautiful plant into one of our wool plant pots (perfectly waterproof) and you'll be doing a small bit to decrease CO2 in your home as well since plants naturally absorb CO2.

Colour Change Metal Straws - £4


Colour Change Straw Eco Gift

We love these colour-change metal straws from Ted and Kip which combine simplicity and fun all in one. We can imagine supping our Christmas cocktails through one of these. And some of them come with a handy tin so you don't get caught strawless at the Christmas party. Goodness knows our lipstick needs to be perfect.

Handmade Soap Gift Sets - £23.99

We love the handmade soap by Saffie Bea in Harrogate. Using good quality ingredients, this is a real 'treat-me' gift. All sustainable, all planet-friendly.

Sustainable Lunchbox - £35

While taking your lunch to work in an old takeaway carton is a perfectly good idea, we also love this wooden box created by The Woodlife Project. Made from British trees that have been sourced in an environmentally friendly way and in line with the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC). Plus, they look stunning and have a magnetic fastening. Perfect for the commuter in your life.

Wooden Fruit Bowl - £58

Created from reclaimed wood, these fruit bowls are a work of art. Each is hand-crafted and individual so no two are the same. The beautiful quality of the wood is preserved and we've found them to make a real talking point. Get them here.
