It's that time of year again! The holiday season is here and with it comes the dreaded (and difficult) task of finding just the right gift for your loved ones.
It can be a daunting process, but don't worry- we're here to help bring you some creativity and inspiration. If you're looking for something unique this year to excite that conscious shopper, or aspiring zero waster in your circle, we have some brilliant ideas for you!
Let’s start this off by thinking about “gifts” in general for a second. How many times have you received a gift from someone and whispered to yourself “WTF”, and never actually ended up using it or just sat in the random closet in your place? Fun fact: I once got a tape dispenser in the shape of a Smurf sitting on the can, and no, this wasn’t a gag gift, 100% for real. Why do I need a tape dispenser!?
We all know holiday gifting can be incredibly wasteful, especially for gifts that are just “things” and don’t have a practical use that will bring actual value to your life.
This is why shopping sustainably, with purpose, is critical to landing that home-run gift for your loved ones this holiday season.
For starters, we can think of the basics. What are common items nearly everyone uses? Think kitchen items, bathroom items, everyday use items. These are the gifts that have practicality and definitely won’t go to waste!
We’ve compiled a list of our favourite gift ideas as well as some non-materialistic gift ideas below!
