The festive season is fast approaching. And the pressure is on to find the right gift. When it comes to gift giving, we aim to purchase things people like or love. It could be something that fuels their lifestyle or complements their hobby.
To pick a truly special gift, it's time to think out of the box. As we move towards living a more sustainable life, we will focus on eco-friendly gifts. This way you get to give a loved one a unique gift, help the environment, and support businesses that aim to use sustainable practices.
6 Best Eco Friendly Gifts 2021
What can be a better gift for nature lovers than the power to attract nature to their garden? Wildflower Seedballs attract wildlife activity, add a beautiful touch of greenery and colour to your outdoor space while eliminating the need to open up the soil with harvesting tools. Wildflowers also act as a source of food for the birds, bees, and other creatures.
2) Large Mugs
Let’s face it. Life without a large mug is a little dull. There’s something comforting in sipping a hot drink whilst wrapped up in your favourite blanket on a cold winter's night.
If you’re looking for a beautiful mug and a more eco-friendly option, Jin Designs is where you make your stop. These are English fine bone china mugs which make them more sustainable than other imported mugs in helping to reduce our carbon footprint. These large mugs hold approximately 375ml of pure, delightful bliss. Quite the right size, wouldn’t you agree?

5) Make a Donation
So when you donate to a charity in someone’s name, you’re not only acknowledging the causes close to their heart, you're also making the world a better place and opening opportunities for the less privileged. It’s a win-win.
6) An Experience
Don’t know what to give someone? That’s fine! Gifts don’t always have to be tangible. You can also gift someone an experience they will cherish for years to come. You can take a pottery class together, go sightseeing, explore nature with mountain biking, or make them a personalised video message.
You can also purchase a gift card that integrates with their wishlist or a well-curated subscription box. Explore the possibilities.
Eco-friendly gifts online are plentiful. It’s very easy to get lost in the magnitude of it all.
