Eco-friendly gifts are on the rise. And, what better way is there to support your local plant than looking for gifts for eco-friendly people? If you want to give an environmentally-friendly present this year, consider the following options:
Personalised wooden gifts
Giving a present to someone is meant to be thoughtful. Right? You want to bring a smile to a person’s face, and one of the best eco-friendly options is to give personalised wooden gifts. When choosing this idea, you’re opting for:
- One-of-a-kind products
- A truly thoughtful gift
You have a plethora of options to choose from in this category, including beer mugs, cutting boards, furniture – so much more.
Ideally, you’ll take your time finding an item that is made locally or at least within the same country to maximise the eco-friendly nature of the item.
Upcycled glass cups
Carbon-neutral and eco-friendly are two of the best ways to describe upcycled glass cups. If you’re looking for one of the best eco-friendly gifts available, this is it. Plus, you likely have cups that you’re not using hiding away in your cupboard.
There are so many ways that you can upcycle cups, including:
- 100% recycled, upcycled glass cups
- Recycled, tiered glass cup sets (great DIY options)
Many people are also using old, glass mason jars and turning them into beautiful cups that people love as gift options.
Solar-powered phone charger
One of the eco-friendly gifts for men that you almost always know is going to be useful is a solar-powered phone charger. You can find a wide range of different options here from budget-friendly choices to more expensive chargers.
The great thing about a phone charger like this is that it can be:
- Transported anywhere, so it’s ideal for camping, hiking and outdoors
- Used by almost anyone and for a multitude of devices
And since the phone charger uses solar, it can be used as an emergency charging station without requiring any type of electrical usage.
A solar-powered phone charger is low on environmental impact and replaces an item that people use daily.
It’s the perfect eco-friendly choice for him and her.
Thermal travel mug
Does the person you’re giving the gift to like coffee or tea? A thermal travel mug is a gift that keeps on giving. These mugs are made with an interior, thermal liner that is designed to keep drinks the perfect temperature.
So, if the recipient likes to bring coffee or something similar to work every day, they can use this mug.
But how is it eco-friendly?
- The person won’t need to use a microwave or other wasteful way to heat or cool their drink. A thermal mug will keep the liquid at just the right temperature
- Many mugs are the right size so that they can be used at coffee shops to fill with coffee and don’t require disposable cups
If the person on your gift list already has one of these mugs, you can move on to the next item on the list.
If your friend or loved one is a student or likes to take notes or journal, a decomposition book is an eco-friendly alternative to the classic composition notebook.
Decomposition books are made with 100% post-consumer-waste recycled paper and have sewn bindings. They also use soy ink and feature stunning, colourful cover designs. Some of these notebooks have spiral bindings, which make it even easier to take notes.
Like the classic composition notebook, decomposition books are transportable and feature a rugged design that can withstand heavy use.
Silicone food grade reusable storage bag
Looking for unique eco-friendly gifts? A silicone food-grade reusable storage bag is a great option. Made from silicone, these bags work just like their disposable plastic counterparts.
But instead of tossing these bags in the trash when they’re empty, you can wash them and reuse them over and over again.
Plus, food-grade silicone is a healthier and more environmentally friendly option than plastic.
These sealable bags can be used to store leftovers, snacks, lunch and virtually anything else you’d store in a sealable storage bag. You can even use them to store fresh vegetables.
If your friend or loved one is a foodie and prefers eco-conscious, sustainable products, silicone food storage bags make great gifts.
If you’re looking for eco-friendly gifts to give this Christmas, these ideas are a great place to start. There’s something for everyone on this list.
