It’s Christmas time!! And you know what that means… a mad dash to finish checking off the Christmas list.
Why do we always wait until the last minute to get those last few gifts? I personally think it’s the adrenaline of the holiday season & the challenge of finding that “perfect” item for that 1 person or 3 who’s the hardest to buy for.
Of course I believe in giving gifts I’d love to get. So just like my last green gift guide, I’ve put together a list of sustainable gifts to consider whether you’re trying to “outdo yourself” or redeem from last year. Or if you’re just looking for something unique to gift. It’s worth mentioning again that the ultimate Green gift is homemade food – cookies, cakes, and other goodies – but if cooking isn’t your thing read on for more sustainable gifts that keep giving all year long.
Note: Almost all the items on this list are sustainable in some way – recyclable after use, made from green/natural materials, long lasting, etc.

Gifts for the serial entertainer:
I do have to say that we LOVE our soda stream. We don’t buy soda & haven’t for many many years. I mostly use it to make “club soda” – purely just carbonated water – to mix with regular water or for mixed drinks. No chemicals or extra ingredients – just pure water. The kids mix it with juice & we have used a few of the flavorings for a treat.
Gifts for the homebody, new mom, or anyone you think could use a home spa day:
Gifts for the modern man (who has it all already):
Save his back & keep him styling with these front pocket wallets from The Grommet. Mr. Green saw these and immediately loved them. That’s rare so take it as a recommendation. 😉
Gifts for plant parents (or people who want to be):
For your decorator friend (or the one that should seriously consider it):
Decorators & super swanky friends with loads of great taste can be hard to buy for. But I’ll tell you a secret… we love unique items, decorative but useful dishes, and all things shiny. Big score if you can get all 3 in 1 gift!
Have something else in mind?
