The festive season is nearly upon us and with it a growing sense of over-indulgence and excess. It’s easy to lose the sense of our own values amidst the heady delights of a consumer-driven season. But gifts can be thoughtful and reflect the values of the giver and the recipient. We have an abundance of sustainable Christmas gift ideas which are sure to deliver the feel good factor in terms of ethics and values.
Sustainable Christmas gift ideas
When it comes to choosing gifts this Christmas, make sure they match your own principles and those of the recipient. Better yet, ensure they deliver a smile and an ongoing sense of joy!
1. For the pal you’re missing coffee with
We adore the WAKEcup Reusable Bamboo Coffee Cup and we’re sure that your friends will too. With its striking good looks, it doesn’t compromise on ethics.
What’s more, 10% of WAKEcup profits go to eco charities, The Marine Conservation Society and Plastic Oceans, so your Christmas consumer pound is doing good things in more ways than one.
2. For the vegan with the sweet tooth
Who says vegans don’t want to indulge in a sweet treat now and then, especially at Christmas? Win over your vegan friends with one of the best vegan gift ideas there is: a box of Nummy Vegan Baked Dark and White Chocolate Doughnuts.
Everyone else gets to enjoy a sweet treat at Christmas, now vegans can too.
3. For the teen lad in your life
No excuses, the teen boys are often the hardest to buy for. You won’t go wrong with the Cariki Men’s Climber Long Sleeve White T-Shirt.
It’ll tick the ‘cool’ box in terms of style and ethics. Made from organic sustainable cotton, it’s a streetwear brand that your teens are sure to love.
4. For the distinguished gent who has everything
Yes, we know the much-loved men in your life are tricky customers when it comes to gift buying. However, they will be pleasantly happy not to receive yet more socks when you give them the Naked Necessities Naked Shave Razor Kit.
Being plastic free and zero waste, it’s one of our favourite eco-friendly Christmas gift ideas.
5. For the vegan foodie who loves to cook

6. For the stressed individuals on your radar
2020 has definitely brought more than its fair share of stress for most of us. Show your loved ones that you really care by giving them The Calm Gift Box by Alice & Peg.

7. For an eco-friendly stocking filler
Don’t you just love all those little stocking stuffers? But they can be terrible for the environment. We therefore adore this Christmas Cracker Face Mask Gift by Fruits of the Nut Tree.
It’s organic, vegan and can be personalised. What’s not to love?
8. For the young girls setting their principles
It’s tough for the tweens and teens that are starting to put down their ethical roots whilst still trying to fit in. Show them it can be done by treating them this Christmas to a Biodegradable Glitter Kit.
Sure to be one of the top eco-friendly gift ideas in 2020, these glitters can be applied as body art. There’s a Christmas Biodegradable Glitter set too.
9. For the tough to buy for
We’ve all got at least one on our list, or even just the need to have a stock gift that’s suitable for anyone. Something we’d all enjoy receiving is the London Bathers Hand Wash and Hand Lotion Set.
