December is here, so I hope you already have your Christmas gifts ready! This year I plan to add a few environmentally friendly items to the list.
If you want to try it too, here I give you five of my favorite eco-approved gift ideas for the holidays:
1. Reusable Bag:
The Hip Pod from the XO(eco) line by BlueAvocado is made from 50% post-consumer recycled bottle fabric. You could also use this bag to wrap your gift too! Fill it with tissue and tie on a festive bow and voilà—your gift is wrapped!
2. Teacup Candle:
Make a candle (instructions here) and create a unique scent specific to the recipient. I love how this idea recycles an ordinary object into something entirely new.
3. Hot Cocoa in a Jar:
This is a cute and very simple idea. It can be a beautiful gift and more importantly, eco-minded. Click here for another great Classic Cocoa in a jar recipe.
4. Infused Sugar:
I saw this idea on Sugar & Charm and think it is a great idea. It’s thoughtful, reusable, and sweet. Literally.
5. Brush Box:
If you have a beauty-lover in your life or someone that travels a lot, the Brush Boxe from the XO(eco) collection by BlueAvocado is the perfect gift. Plus it’s completely eco-friendly!
Also, while we’re on the subject of “going green” I thought I’d share this tip: One of my favorite ways to add an eco-friendly touch to my holiday gifts is by wrapping them in newspaper and then tying them off with brightly colored ribbon.
