It’s that time of year again! Shopping for our loved ones becomes one of the top things on our priority list but rarely does that involve being conscious about what we are buying and the way it may effect the planet. This year I am trying to be much more eco-conscious with my purchases and shop for the ones I love with their health and wellbeing as well as the planet in mind. I have compiled 15 things that I think would make awesome gifts for anyone on your list!
Insulated Water Tumbler - I got this one at target for $10 and it’s super durable, keeps your drink ice cold and is perfect to have with you throughout your day to make sure you’re staying hydrated. There are so many fun colors and these make truly practical and fun gifts! I love that the lids on these have holes big enough for all stainless steel straws too!
Stainless Steel Straws - These are a no brainer and such an awesome gift for anyone and everyone (goes perfectly with the tumbler!). I love the ones available on my new shop Balance + Bloom. They are sourced just a few hours from where I live and come in silver or rose gold! Be sure to go check them out! Encourage your friends and family to carry one of their straws with them when they go out so they can avoid using single use plastic ones!
doTERRA Essential Oils - Again, such a thoughtful and useful gift that anyone would love to receive. A diffuser is always a great addition when gifting essential oils! These intro kits of Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint are perfect for getting someone introduced to the benefits of oils.
Biodegradable Cork Yoga Mat - These are just so pretty, such an eco-friendly option, and the perfect gift for all the yogis in your life!
Essential Oil Pouch - These pouches are so fun and the designs are killer. These have 8 slots for essential oils in them along with plenty of extra room for roller bottles or anything else you may need to have with you throughout the day! Available in a few different designs and ship the day after purchase!
Bamboo Cooking Utensils - Who doesn’t love a fresh new set of cooking utensils? I feel like this is such a great gift idea but never really crosses anyones mind. If you know someone who loves to cook or be in the kitchen, these are such an eco-conscious kitchen staple and are usually very affordable.
Reusable Glass Coffee Cup - These are so stinking cute, you may want to get one for everyone including yourself! These come in gray, blue, and pink and help to reduce the single use plastic we’re using everyday. Dishwasher safe, under $20 and available now for next day shipping, doesn’t get any better than that!
Charcoal Bamboo Toothbrush - I recently started using these and love the way they clean and whiten my teeth gently and naturally! These would be a great stocking stuffer or gift for those friends or family that you know are trying to live a more toxin free low waste lifestyle.
Diffuser - I am loving the bamboo and glass look to some of the newer diffusers that are available on the market right now. I love this beautiful and affordable one from spa room. doTERRA & Spa Room are the only brands I order diffusers from because of their quality and price ranges.
Plants! - Who doesn't love an easy houseplant to add a little life to their living space? I think plants make unique and thoughtful gifts especially when gifted in a pretty planter! Plants help purify the air and can elevate the mood! Who wouldn’t want that? Snake plants are super low maintenance and succulents are always a great option as well!
Glass Tea Kettle - These are such beautiful additions to any kitchen and anyone who loves tea. I love that you can easily brew loose leaf or bagged tea in this kettle with the infuser. This would be great to pair with a bag of organic loose leaf tea. What an awesome gift!
Cute + Easy Tank - I love shirts with simple words on them like this one that can make for a sort of universal gift idea. Perfect for yoga, workouts, lounging around the house, or running errands! Be sure to scroll through all of the cute shirts this shop has to offer!
Wooden Coffee/Tea Spoon - These spoons are handmade by a maker in Kenya and sold by a small business in Cali who are using the money to give back and do incredible things in Kibera Africa. 100% of proceeds from these spoons go to support programs in the Kibera slum which fulfill the basic needs of orphans and vulnerable children. They run a Nursery School, Children's Rescue Center and Scholarship Program that reach 200+ children annually.
Not Your Mama’s Bath Bomb (full spectrum CBD infused) - I have heard so much amazing feed back on these and how incredibly relaxing they are. These are available on Balance + Bloom for a limited time and with next day shipping! Grab them while you can! Perfect gifts for anyone struggling with stress, anxiety, pain, or who just need to take a little more time for themselves!
New Moon Organic Tea - These teas are grown and handcrafted by a Canadian herbalist who has such a passion for bringing life-giving teas to people all over. These are also available on Balance + Bloom! We have 5 different delicious blends to choose from!
