Oh no! Secret Santa time again… That means shopping… That means consumerism and buying into the crazy Christmas related spending schemes. So are you looking for some eco-friendly gift ideas that won’t break your budget? A lot of people associate the words “eco-friendly,” “ethical,” “organic,” “sustainable,” etc. with the word “expensive!” But it definitely doesn’t have to be that way. With a little effort, you can find small business owners who are creating beautiful eco products without the high costs you may be used to. So I decided to take away some of your research time and help you get your Secret Santa holiday shopping over with while still supporting hand-makers and artisans.

A great, all-natural, way to start your BBQ’s and bonfires without using harmful and toxic chemicals. The kit includes 6 macadamia nutshell starts & 6 coffee starts. Receive your items packaged in recycled paper bags!
There is a lot of hype around the plastic cling wrap replacement; beeswax wraps… And for good reason! Plastic wrap is such an unfortunate waste and the beeswax wrap does an equally good job plus it has the benefit of being reusable and compostable. So how about give the fun gift of not only an eco-friendly kitchen accessory but a DIY kit so you can enjoy the activity together.
100% cotton reusable bowl cover is another great replacement for cling wrap. These bowl covers are so darling, and they have tons of beautiful designs for every personality type. Great for keeping food fresh in the fridge, insects away during a picnic, or just for decorative purposes while on the dinner table. These covers are washable and reusable.
This is a lovely customizable gift. You get to choose your favourite Botany Barn Canada soap, lip balm, and lotion bar or substitute the lotion bar for a jar of whipped body butter. There are tons of different aromas to pick from, and everything is handmade organically. An extra benefit is that the products are 100% palm oil free and lip balms are made with beeswax from local beekeepers!
These tea towels are made with organic cotton and are printed with top quality waterbased non-toxic inks. Easily washed and reused each time. There are seriously a lot of designs to choose from, so get browsing to find the design that perfectly fits your giftee. Towels arrive in 100% recycled packaging.
This beautiful handcrafted bowl is great as a dish for berries & nuts, or keys & jewellery. It has been carved out of walnut and finished with linseed oil and organic beeswax mastic. Arrives in eco-friendly packaging.
Handmade reusable travel mugs that look like owls! Love it! The ceramic mug is finished with a food-safe, microwave-safe, oven-safe and dishwasher-safe glaze.
“Five pots and saucers made from post-harvest rice hulls that will completely biodegrade in approximately 5 years, garden stakes and a pencil. Perfect for transplanting seedlings into or starting seeds.”
Hand-poured 100% all natural soy wax candles. “Soy wax candles are made from all-natural, renewable, and non-toxic soy wax. Safe for family.” These ones are aromatic like a winter berry but BerryAndBirchCo offer lots of other aromas to entice any nose.
24 botanical gift tags that have been upcycled from a vintage wildflower book. Simply beautiful!
A wallet to hold your tea bags… Why didn’t I think of that? A great idea for any tea lover. The wallet is made from 100% natural cotton, linen and denim cotton with a natural coconut button. There are a ton of different designs to choose from.
So there you have it!
