It’s time for family gatherings, end-of-the-year celebrations and holidays… and rush to buy the last Xmas gifts (why do I always wait for the last minute?). If you have no idea, there probably is a fair-trade shop in your city or village with a good choice of gifts.

Greenselipar’s team wishes you the best.
