Christmas is coming!!!
My mind is definitely absorbed into Christmas thoughts right now and gifts are high on the list! I personally like to start shopping around this time (even though I’ve actually purchased a couple of gifts already!)
I really want Christmas to be an enjoyable time and buying gifts in advance comes with a number of advantages: no last-minute stress, more thoughtful gifts, more time to come up with personalized and special gift wrapping…
With sustainability, zero-waste and plastic free being more popular than ever, I thought I’d put together a few ideas of useful items that will be great gifts for your loved ones and will also be a gift for the planet!
Some are small things, but you can always combine them and create a bigger gift!
1.Water nozzle by Altered: a water saving nozzle that allows to reduce water consumption by up to 90%. Compatible with standard taps.
2.Soap dispenser by Aquanova - via Amara: a refillable soap dispenser can encourage buying soap in bulk (and will make the bathroom look immediately more curated!)
3.Smart garden by Plantui: a soil-free indoor gardening system fitting 6 plants.
5.The Kinfolk Home by Nathan Williams - via Amazon: a book about slow-living, that can inspire and motivate a journey to a more considerate and happier lifestyle.
6.Cushion cover by PCB Home - via Etsy: handmade with unbleached organic cotton. Btw, isn't this eyelashes design just lovely?
7.Stainless steel straws by Package Free Shop: reusable straws available in 4 colours: stainless steel, rose gold, gold and bronze.
9.Coasters by Weez & Merl: coasters made of recycled plastic sourced from local businesses' waste (other colours are also available). This product was presented at the latest London Design Fair. You can read more about this and the other sustainable and innovative uses of plastic from the London Design Fair in my previous post.
10.Oslo Dove bag by Weaver Green: a fabric bag made out of 150 recycled plastic bottles. Suitable for grocery shopping or just as a handbag!
BONUS. And what about gifting a personalized interior design consultation? If you are interested, I have a 50% off sale going on just for this weekend, including both the e-design boxes and my new e-book on home office design! Check out the page of my services to learn more!
Why this is a sustainable gift you ask? Well, for a couple of reasons...
First, all my services are virtual, so there's no printing involved. And second, because the space we live in can influence how we feel a lot and gifting the opportunity to turn a living space into a practical and aesthetically beautiful space is such a meaningful idea! And no, I'm not saying this because my services are on sale right now, but because a well-designed space can truly make a difference in the overall quality of life!
I hope you've found some interesting inspiration for your Christmas shopping! For even more ideas, take a look at a selection of cork items and some sustainable ideas from IKEA.
