We want nothing but the best for our friends and family. Often we buy products for them based on trends or marketing material thrown at us at every turn without realizing these items might never be of use to those we give them to.

So what should you keep in mind when shopping for loved ones at Christmas? Here are the top things you should consider:

Choose QUALITY over quantity
Choose brands who care about the FUTURE

Keeping these things in mind translate to how thoughtful and mindful you are as a gift-giver. With the right amount of planning and research, you can surely give them the best gifts this Christmas!


Here are some of MWR’s handpicked recommendations:
