It’s that time of year again – Christmas is less than 6 weeks away – and so I’ve put together my annual ethical Christmas gift guide packed full of ethical ideas for him, her and for little ones. From vegan, to palm oil free, to plastic free, to zero waste, to organic, I hope there’s something here for everyone.
I don’t subscribe to the idea that you should spend lots of money at Christmas so all of my ideas are around the £30 mark or less, and start from just £8.
Ethical Christmas Gift ideas for Him and Her
DIY origami paper lamp kit (£19.95) from OWL Paper Lamps. I love this paper lamp kit that you make yourself (full instructions provided!). Please note, this item ships from Portugal so bear this in mind with shipping times.
Stainless Steel Lunchbox (£18) by Green Tulip. A great gift for anyone. I have a stainless steel lunchbox that I use for work that my partner pinches on a regular basis!
Soap, candle and flannel gift set (£21.50) from Soapdaze. I love Soapdaze, and this gift box packed with a vegan candle, handknitted facecloth, and vegan soap is a lovely gift for someone that deserves a good pampering.
Succulent enamel pins from Katy Pillinger Designs (£18 for 3). A cute gift for your friends. Split them up so you all have one each, or give them all to one lucky recipient.
Fresh Clean Home (from £8.30). Currently reduced on Amazon but also available at other retailers. I have it on very good authority that this book is brilliant for anyone that’s keen to give making their own cleaning products a go ;) You could even gift it with some amber spray bottles and/or a bottle of liquid castile soap,
Vegan and Palm Oil Free Pamper Gift Set (£18.70) from
Vegan and plastic free candle (£11) from Vegan Bunny. After a delicious smelling soy candle from a plastic-free company? Vegan Bunny is the place to go!
The Danish Art of Whittling (RRP £9.99). I have been ogling this in my local bookshop and it looks like a wonderful guide to whittling (my new found favourite hobby).
Safety Razor (£32.50) from Babi Pur. For ladies or men looking to swap from plastic razors.
Bamboo Multi-Tool (£15). I have one of those for my bike and it’s by far one of the most useful things I carry with me on a daily basis, and not just for my bike. There’s few things you can’t mend with a multi-tool!
Guppy Friend (£25.99) from tentree. For ocean conscious pals that want to help stop microfibres from their laundry.
Georganics Tooth Care Set (£19.90) – A complete oral care gift set for anyone that wants to green their dental routine.
Ethical Gift Ideas for Kids
Pretend Play Kitchenware Set (£29.99) from Toby Tiger. This sweet set contains enamel pans and metal utensils, and it’s so lovely to find a plastic-free set. I could imagine this being a lovely hand me down set that will last for decades.
The Lorax: How To Save The Planet Edition (£11.41) from Harper Collins. We have this book and my kids love it. As well as containing the classic Lorax story from Dr Seuss, it’s also packed full of ideas on how kids can help the environment.
Paper Bead Craft Kit (£11.95) from Ethical Superstore. Is there a kid that doesn’t love crafting? I certainly haven’t met one yet. This kit allows kids to make beads from recycled paper, which can then be used to make
Banana Pyjamas (£19.99) from Toby Tiger. These fun GOTS certified organic cotton are sure to be a hit at bedtime. These beauties come in lots of other fun patterns too.
Personalised Water Bottle (£15) from Not On The High Street. Which kid doesn’t love seeing their name printed on anything? I know when I was little I used to get incredibly excited when I saw my name printed on anything in a gift shop. Now some 30 years later my kids are the same.
Recycled Fire Engine (£19.95) from Ethical Superstore. This cute fire engine is made from recycled milk bottles and is sure to provide tons of fun.
