Want to give gifts that your friends and family will love while still protecting the environment? Eco-friendly gifts encourage your loved ones to be more environmentally friendly, and make for thoughtful gifts. Check out these ideas to inspire a festive, green holiday!
Gifts that protect our planet’s animals
We are more likely to remember experiences than the material things. Give your loved ones a special event to remember with tickets for wine tasting, art classes, Broadway tickets, or whatever they have been dying to try.
Turn your leftover craft scraps into beautiful works of art. Old yarn can be stylized into bohemian jewellery with beads and charms by weaving in thin wire. Dry foods, paints and magazine pages can become a fun mixed media collage. Let your imagination run wild!
Make your own jams, preserves or syrups. This Christmas Jam is especially delicious, stirring up dreams of magical holiday traditions. Top off the Mason jar with a piece of funky fabric, and tie it with a holiday ribbon.
Literally Green Gifts
Give an herb or tree planting kit with hand-made, stylishly designed instructions. Sprinkle the package with specks of moss agate, moonstone, green calcite, malachite, or clear quartz for an extra green boost.
Gifts that get you out and about
Does your loved one live near a river, ocean, lake or mountain? Choose a convenient outdoor activity, such as rafting, sailing, SUP yoga, snowboarding, or surfing, to get them inspired by nature.
