Whether you are attending a white elephant party with friends or your family’s annual holiday celebrations, these are the perfect eco-friendly gifts for your loved ones. While the holidays are a time to enjoy with loved ones and cherish their presence, the bonus of receiving a gift is too sweet to deny. Here are some of our favorite sustainable gift ideas!
- Plantable Colored Pencils – This is the perfect gift for the artist or kid in your life! The best part about this gift is that once the colored pencils get too short to use, you can plant them and watch them sprout.
- Compost Bin – This is great for your friend that wants to start living more sustainable but doesn’t know where to start. Get them a small compost bin to keep in their kitchen to make the transition much easier on them. This gift will minimize the amount of garbage that gets sent to landfills.
- Stainless Steel Straws – Eco-friendly, durable, and reusable… What more could you want for a gift? Stainless steel straws help reduce the effect plastic has on the environment by replacing the plastic straw with a stainless steel one. Think of all the wildlife you will save by gifting a reusable straw this holiday season.
- Stainless Steel Water Bottle – Help your friends stay hydrated while also helping save the environment. Stainless-steel water bottles are perfect for any lifestyle, you can re-fill them almost anywhere and you will be decreasing your single-use plastic water bottle intake. And if that wasn’t enough to win you over, these bottles have the capacity of maintaining your drink hot or cold longer than a regular water bottle.
Bonus points if you use eco-friendly wrapping paper of paper bags! We hope you enjoy your festivities.
