Chanukah, the Jewish holiday, comes early this year, so there are some frantic shoppers out there already. Here is a little guide to some green and special presents, just in time for the first night of the holiday which takes place on the first of December.

There are many charities doing wonderful things. Just £10 will provide books for children in Sierra Leone and £37 will provide a donkey. And there are lots of interesting, unique and sustainable presents to be found.liberty knickers photo
