Do you have an environmentally friendly person on your holiday gift list?
I’ll let you know that they’re probably uncomfortable with the idea of gifts around the holidays.
And it’s not because they don’t want gifts, but they’re nervous about which gifts they’ll receive and ultimately need to take responsibility for.
These are people who care deeply about what comes into their homes.
And they try to make informed evaluations before purchasing so they don’t regret their choices later on when it’s time to dispose of that item.
So here’s a little cheat sheet with tips for shopping for the environmentally friendly person on your list.
GIVE THEM AN EXPERIENCE
Memories of an experience will always stay with them and never break or get lost. Look for tickets to an event or teach them how to do something new.
GIVE THEM A CONSUMABLE
Most people love to eat! So bake your loved one a batch of cookies or give them an assortment of organic fair-trade chocolate to add to their stash.
GIVE THEM SOMETHING PRACTICAL
These people love practical items! Think of something they could really use around their home like zero-waste kitchen tools or a pair of wool socks.
