Practical but stylish, reusable gifts that keep on giving throughout the year by replacing wasteful, disposable products.
Socks. Underwear. Really? As a kid, getting a practical gift was always a bit of a disappointment. But as an adult, especially one who already has a lot of stuff, a practical gift makes great sense.
All of these gift ideas replace something that is usually disposable – paper towels, plastic wrap, dryer sheets – but they are also super cute and high quality too. Bonus: a reusable gift keeps giving all year long by reducing waste and working hard!
