SUSTAINABLE GIFT IDEAS FOR CHRISTMAS

With Christmas around the corner, it’s that time of year to start thinking about gifts.

Buying Christmas gifts can prove difficult, especially when you’re trying to think of ideas that are going to be useful, long lasting and most of all appreciated.

Sustainable gift ideas are a great way to tick all of the above boxes and best of all they’re ethical, friendly on the environment and don’t have to cost a fortune.

Here are my top 4 sustainable gift ideas that are designed to cater to everyone in the family, both young and old.


Reusable Coffee Cups

This is a great gift idea for the coffee lovers in the family.

There are so many fantastic re-usable coffee cups available whether it be glass, ceramic or recycled plastic you’re spoiled for choice.

Some of my favourite brands include Leiluca for all things beautiful and ceramic, especially their coffee cups with silicone lids.

For the perfect eco -friendly glass coffee cup that doesn’t let your hot drinks go cold, my go to brand is Luxey Cup.

Sustainable Makeup and Skin care

There are so many sustainable and ethically made make up and skin care brands to choose from that can be used by both men and women.

I am a big fan of natural make up and skincare products that are not only good for your skin but also the environment. Many beauty products now boast zero waste packaging are ethically sourced and aren’t tested on animals.

Some great brands to check out that use all natural ingredients and are eco friendly are Alluring Minerals and Raww Cosmetics.

Eco Friendly Home Decor

As an Interior Decorator I see my fair share of home decor products but some of my favourites are the eco friendly kind as they’re hand made which makes them bespoke and unique.

Home decor items such as recycled glass vases, hand woven textiles or ethically made artisan bags and baskets such as this example from The Dharma Door are both sustainably conscious and stylish.

These products are designed to never go out of style and will withstand the test of time.

Timber Toys 

For the younger kids in the family a great gift idea that is hardy enough to withstand child’s play and can be passed down through the generations are timber toys such as this timber stacker available from Honeycomb Living.

Baby Products

For babies it can sometimes be challenging to think of what they’ll use as they grow up so quickly but some eco friendly gift ideas that will always be appreciated by the mums in the family are silicon teether’s, reusable swim nappies and wet bags.
