It’s already December. Can you believe it? Many of us are nowhere close to completing our holiday shopping. Finding the perfect eco-friendly gift ideas is never easy, but we’re here to help you brainstorm ideas. The perfect gift at Living Life Natural Blog means a few things. The best talent has to be affordable, functional, practical, useful, ethical, and durable for us. With all these in mind, here are the top best 6 eco-friendly gift ideas out there:
Think something homemade and crafty. This is also a great way to get the entire family involved. You can make anything from homemade jam, soaps, lotion or candles. Of course, you can always make homemade scarves for your loved ones if you’re into knitting. It’s thoughtful, and you have control over where you buy your material, ensuring that everything is ethical and local.
Food & Beverages
Everyone loves food. If you can’t make it, you can always buy organic and locally made chocolate, jam, biscuits or honey. Think about designing your very own gift baskets. Wine or other booze can also make a great gift.
Tea & Coffee
Many people love their tea and coffee. This makes a great gift idea as well. To create the perfect gift, you can arrange a few different flavours, maybe with a specialized mug. We have a vast selection of herbal teas and coffees. Make sure you have a look.
Nothing screams GREEN more than a beautiful plant. There really is no better gift out there. More than anThe give the assistance of a lie. Make sure you research and purchase a plant that suits the climate, temperature and season.
Cosmetics & Personal Care
People like it and need it. This makes it a win-win. But before buying a lipstick or the perfect body lotion, think about the ingredients they use. Are they biodegradable and natural? Make sure the products are Eco-friendly but also animal-friendly, chemical-free and organic.
Perhaps we obsess over material objects. Instead, think about an experience-driven gift: a ticket to a good show, an online subscription, a movie, and dinner? These are just a few ideas for gifts that are based on experience. For example, when you buy someone a ticket to their favourite show, you show them that you’ve put thought and effort into their gift – even better if you end up joining them – quality time and quality gift.
We’ve got a few tips for this year’s eco-friendly gift ideas. If you can make it, then make it! If you can’t, try to support ethical brands and companies. Read labels and ask questions: how are products packaged? How are they distributed? Who makes them? Are they healthy? Natural? Organic? Vegan? Eco-Friendly? Ask the questions and be proud of the gifts you give this holiday.
