By growing our awareness on the impact of our choices we can truly show our appreciation and affection also towards the environment and makers behind our products. During this time the meaning of our choices is manifold, yet is easily sidelined in all the holiday hassle. This year we joined forces with Finnish businesses aiming for a more sustainable lifestyle and created a gentle gift shop. Here you can discover just the right purposeful present for your loved one. You can also find some of our most beloved Lovia treasures combined into ready gift-sets at special prices.

Quality over quantity

If you wish to gift a physical product of some sorts, turn to sustainable options. Often a good sign of the real thing is to look at how much is told about the product and its history. If you can get answers to the burning questions of where and how the item was made, what materials were used and whether it will stand the test of time, you’re already on the right track.

Gifting an experience

Sometimes it may be difficult to assess the true purpose and necessity of a gift to its receiver. Often mismatched presents end up at the back of the cupboard. An immaterial gift can give out a new experience or inspire, reminding of a moment or of its giver even years later. This year you can also find these immaterial presents from our gift selection.

Honoring circulation

Prevent filling up your mixed waste by wrapping gifts in newsletter paper or reusable gift bags. The most beautiful wrappings can perhaps also be repurposed as is or as something else. Many recycling centers (Sortti in Finland) also accept Christmas trees free of charge during January. Another option is renting out a potted tree, allowing it to keep growing after the holidays.
