Planning thoughtful gifts for the people you loved is one of the most rewarding parts of the holiday season. Maybe you’re on the lookout for a cool gadget you know they’ll use every day, or a great book you think they’ll love. This year, why not go all out with eco-friendly gifts that everyone you know will love? These are some of Western National‘s favorite environmentally conscious gift ideas.
1. Restore Old Jewelry and Trinkets
A little silver polish can go a long way, so why not astound your loved ones with beautiful pieces of jewelry and nifty trinkets you’ve restored? Refurbishing antiques is a wonderful way to find beautiful gifts at a serious bargain. Just head to your local thrift store or flea market. You’ll delight your friends and family while saving some amazing goods from the landfill all at the same time.
2. Give the Gift of a Living Plant
Who doesn’t love a little growing desk buddy? Living plants make great gifts, even for those who don’t have a green thumb. Include a little plant food and a tiny grow light to make plant care easier than ever. Your loved ones can each enjoy a delightful little representative of Mother Nature in their kitchen or at their desk every day.
3. Nifty Gifts Made from Recycled Materials
There are countless companies out there making some pretty awesome stuff out of recycled materials. You can find sleek desk chairs and skateboards made out of old fishing nets. Shop for backpacks made from plastic bottles and purses crafted from old military canvas. Grab a unique cat scratcher made from old carpet or a bouncy toy repurposed from melted-down tires. You can go online to find something for everyone that’s made out of recycled materials, and you’ll be sure to delight in telling them all about their gift’s unique story.
Your awesome eco-friendly gifts are sure to show how much you care, and you can bet your friends and family will try out more cool recycled stuff and green techniques at home.
