Giving sustainable gifts is one of the best feelings – especially when you know you have the perfect item for someone. With the holiday season fast approaching, there is no time like the present (pun intended!) to start shopping for your loved ones.
Here are 8 sustainable gift ideas we are loving right now:
Incense + Holder
Incense is trendy this year and for good reason. While incense can act like a beautiful air freshener, it is also great for enhancing creativity, motivation and positive energy – a perfect gift idea for students. Most sticks burn for one hour at a time, so it is great if you need a little pick me up during the day.
Similar to incense, crystal jewelry comes with other superb benefits besides pairing with your favourite outfit. There are numerous varieties in the marketplace ranging in many sizes and colours. One of our favourites at SΛM & LΛNCE is Tourmaline which is said to help with inspiration and happiness – perfect for heading into the New Year!
Fabric Tote Bag
A great gift for the eco-conscious warrior on your list – a fabric tote bag is a great “catch all” for those constantly on the move. Not only is this a great addition to an everyday outfit, you can rest easy knowing you’re doing the environment a favour.
A pair of earrings is the perfect gift for the fashionista in the family. Statement earrings are a wonderful way to spice up simple outfits – adding a bit of sophistication to your weekly grocery shop.
Face Mask & Scrub
We love nothing more than a great facial scrub. Why not add a little care into your sister’s stocking this holiday season? Great for battling dry skin and rosacea, turmeric is set with anti-inflammatory properties to help even the most stubborn redness.
Got a traveller in family? Gift ideas can be hard for someone who’s always exploring and never home. However, a new passport holder is a great option for help keeping all their important documents in one place. They’ll be thinking of you every time they jet off somewhere new!
A classic gift item on any list – candles are an easy option when the person you need to buy for has it all. Our favourites are soy candles as they are cleaner to burn and are better for the environment
Key Fob Wristlet
While perhaps a unique gift idea – key chain are fantastic for stocking stuffers for teens are constantly looking for their car keys. Help them break this bad habit with a useful gift for the new year.
We hope this helps you cross off items on your long gift list this year! Shopping doesn’t have to be hard when you can buy most of your items in one place!
