Are you looking for healthy gifts for friends or family that will show them you care about them AND their health, well-being, the environment and more? You’re in luck! Here’s my pick of gifts for everyone on your list, from foodies to kiddos to techies, that you can feel EXTRA good about giving! 🙂
I also wanted to share some great tips to keep in mind this holiday season!
However, if you prefer to buy something, I hope you will choose something eco-friendly and/or organic when applicable. I hope these tips and this gift list is helpful!
Please let me know what you think below and… HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
4 Tips for Eco-Conscious Gift Giving
- Re-use wrapping
I always save bows and bags in good condition (and sometimes even wrapping paper or tissue paper). There is so much waste in the world already, every little bit helps!
- Share Experiences
Everyone has so much STUFF these days. How about sharing in an experience together instead? I love taking friends out for tea or a cocktail, or my parents to the theater or a concert as a gift. My husband and I always do something together like a nice dinner or take a family trip!
- DIY FTW
Home made gifts are always a big hit and hopefully it’s something you know they will enjoy or use so you are just not adding to the landfill. Many years I have made bath salts, or brownies and truffles.
- Sometimes it’s just the thought that counts
Speaking of just adding to the landfill, another great idea is not exchanging gifts at all! A donation in their honor is a triple-win: you feel good giving a gift, the recipient knows you thought of them, and the charity gets your support to help make a difference!
