The gift giving season is upon us. Are you picturing Christmas morning or a gathering when you are with you loved ones ready to rip out a beautifully wrapped present? You remember that time last year when your significant other bought you the most amazing gift that you still cherish till today. But it can also be a gift from an old friend that doesn’t know your that your interest has changed over the year, their gift is opened but left untouched. This is reason why overconsumption and unwanted gifts happens. If you are still racking your brain to find the perfect present for your loved ones that matches your journey towards a more Sustainable lifestyle, we've got some ideas!
Ask Them What They Want
That is right that idea is just under your nose this whole time.
Why is this a good idea?
Maybe your friend or family have been having a wishlist. This is a great way to getting them what they truly want and avoid getting them something they don’t like.
Treat them out for a Meal
A gift can be thought of many things, but what better way to do it then filling up our bellies with delicious food and spending a quality time with your peers.
Bonus point if you are serving home cooked vegan meal because you are not only kind to your friends but also to the environment and animals.
Zero Waste Kit
Got that person in your life that is still purchasing single use water bottles or plastic bags?
This is the perfect opportunity to give them a reusable bottle and bag along with some friendly advice about of waste problems. You can also gift them reusable straws, reusable produce bags or a to go coffee mug.
Diy Gift Basket
From homemade cookies to handmade candles. The choices are endless.
Here are some ideas if you’re still stuck : Christmas Cookies, Gingerbread Man, Cupcakes, Spice Mixes, Candles or A Self Care box.
It might but simple but anyone would appreciate the thoughts and efforts you put toward it.
Get them a Subscription
This can be a few months of spotify subscription, netflix, headspace ( a great meditation app for your friend/family that is always stressed out) or an educational subscription like skillshare, blinkist or brilliant to name a few.
