A holiday gift guide featuring non-toxic, natural, sustainable, and eco-friendly gifts for all occasions and for everyone on your list.
Holiday shopping is a mixed bag for me. On one hand, I love the feeling of finding just the right gift. Something that will make their eyes light up and put a genuine smile on their face. Something magical that will bring joy to their lives. Something special that they would not have bought for themselves.
On the flip side, there’s that pressure. I have to find something for the teachers, the brother, the in-laws (insert your own hard-to-shop-for person here). That pressure takes the fun out of shopping and turns it into a chore.
Plus I’m not a fan of buying stuff just to buy stuff. Because that’s wasteful and I don’t want to add to the clutter. I want to give gifts that will be used till they’re used up, and enjoyed every step of the way.
The best gifts are meaningful, helpful, healthy and a little bit indulgent. I go for gifts that are good for my people and for the planet. No dust-gathering tchotchkes. Only delightfully useful, eco-friendly gifts sprinkled with a little bit of fairy dust for good measure.

Eco-friendly gifts for everyone on your list
As I put together this gift guide, I looked back on favorite products I’ve used over the years. Tools that have been life-savers in the kitchen. Beauty products that have made me feel special even on those very non-special days. Gifts for kids that stimulate the senses and encourage creativity. Essentials for a healthy home environment. Even some cool eco gifts for the adventurous dude in your life.
Most things I’m sharing are items I have tried or gifted myself (or a similar substitute). Plus a couple of things I just think are too cool to pass up. They’re all high-quality, non-toxic, eco-friendly and sustainably produced by ethical, socially conscious companies that I stand behind.
Hope this helps you find those perfect unique, eco-friendly gifts for someone on your list (fairy dust not provided)!

Eco-Friendly Fashion Gifts
Fast fashion has been getting a bad rap lately and for good reason. Here’s some fashion you can feel good about giving – clothing, jewelry and accessories that are ethically produced from natural, sustainable materials. Yay!
Healthy Home Gifts
There are so many ways to create a healthy home environment – from purifying the air with essential oils to substituting natural and organic materials for chemical-laden products around the home.
Kid Friendly Gifts
In the midst of thousands of cheap, crappy kid gifts, there are gems like these that inspire creative play and magical thinking.
Dudes like nice things too! So consider these high-quality gifts for the adventurous, outdoorsy guy in your life.
My favorite type of gifts to give are the small ones! These are perfect for teachers, girlfriends, babysitters and of course, stockings!
Truth be told, I’m still working on my own holiday shopping and I’m feeling a bit of that pressure I was talking about. But creating this gift guide for you has given me some good ideas and I’ve got a big stash of fairy dust ready to go!
