Christmas is officially here, which means everyone is frantically looking to buy gifts for their loved ones. But this year we are seeing Christmas differently to other years. With the cost of living crisis at an all time high, everyone is looking for something at a reasonable price. Then there are all the environmental factors of buying gifts. Sometimes presents barely get used or are made from unsustainable materials.
Did you know that on average, research shows that more than half (53%) of the gifts people received last year have already been completely forgotten. And 1 in 6 gifts never gets used ever again. At WUKA we are bringing the best of the both worlds to you, sustainable gifts under £10 that people will continue to use throughout the year.
