This time if year can be horribly expensive, especially if you don't want to buy mass-produced tat for your friends and family at Christmas. In coming weeks, we'll be rounding up all our favourite green and ethical gifts. But before you even get started on picking out perfect presents, it's worth checking who's offering discounts on their green goodies. I've just done that very thing, and have come back with some tips on where to point your mouse for the best festive eco offers -- some exclusive to hippyshopper readers. So pull yourself up a chair, get out the mulled wine and get shopping!
