ZERO WASTE / PLASTIC FREE CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE

ZERO WASTE / PLASTIC FREE CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE

Christmas is fast approaching, and to make it simple I have put together this handy gift guide to make zero waste / plastic free Christmas gift giving a breeze for everyone on the Christmas present list.


FOR CHILDREN

If you are a bit like me and are not a big fan of gifting big plastic expensive items from Santa it makes sense to gift something they need, a sustainable gift you know they would love, or an experience they could enjoy. 


  • Experiences

According to psychologist Olive James, Outings, experiences and vacations are “valued by children, both in the moment, and for long afterward in their memory”. If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by the amount of “stuff” in the playroom, why not consider giving an experience as part of the Christmas gift haul this year? Some of our favourite experiences to gift include:

A trip to the zoo, wildlife sanctuary, aquarium or amusement park

A day out at an indoor climbing wall

A fun and competitive round of ten pin bowling

Tickets to see their favourite entertainer

  • Sustainable gifts they would enjoy

Wooden items such as puzzles, blocks, open ended heuristic type play items for toddlers or wooden musical items and wooden toy vehicles are fantastic items. 

Other, more sustainable gifts options could be books, reusable beach bags, DIY bath bombs or an assortment of sweets and chocolate items from a bulk bin store. 


  • Practical items

Practical gifts are a great option for zero waste Christmas gifts. Some of the

necessity items our children will be receiving this year, and some other ideas

include: 

Bike or scooter, 

Helmet, 

Clothing, 

Stainless steel lunchbox

Stainless steel water bottle



FOR YOUR PARTNER / SPOUSE

  • Experiences

When it comes to spoiling your partner or spouse with an experience for Christmas, here are some favourites:

A romantic getaway – have you tried glamping?

Family fun – a day out at a waterpark

  • Practical items

Some great Practical items could include;

A safety razor,

natural soap bars,

natural deodorants,

rainbow wine glasses, 

sushi takeaway kit,

stainless steel water bottle,

reusable coffee cupor

stainless steel camping set.


FOR FRIENDS AND FAMILY

Struggling to come up with some ideas for friends and family that seem to have it all? Here’s some of my favourite zero waste / plastic free gifts to give:

Plants

DIY succulent terrarium

DIY natural crochet dishcloth

Stainless Steel clothes pegs

Stainless steel dish rack

Stainless steel chainmail pot scrubber

Stainless steel soap tray and soap bars ,

Stainless steel chopsticks set


FOR TEACHERS

Teachers get spoilt at Christmas, and so they should! If your children want to get their teacher a nice gift, my top picks are:

Vouchers to a nice café (even better if you can find out their favourite)

Manicure voucher

Mini massage voucher

Stainless steel pegs

Stainless steel keep cup

Stainless steel cutlery sets for lunch (spork, straw, chopsticks)



GIFT WRAPPING TIPS

Now that you’ve got the perfect gifts sorted, it’s time to think about the wrapping paper! Did you know that most wrapping papers contain plastic and aren’t recyclable? I like to avoid shiny, glittery, holographic wrapping paper and go for environmentally friendly options instead. Here are my eco-friendly gift wrapping tips:


Use children’s artwork put together with compostable cellulose tape

Kraft brown paper, taped with eco tape.

Paper bag

Cloth drawstring bag (if you’re handy with a sewing machine)

Furoshiki or fabric wrapping. Furoshiki is a square piece of

fabric or cloth used to wrap items. You can use furoshiki to wrap almost anything, and they are a reusable and beautiful way to present your gift to friends and family.

"FOREVER PEGS®" Ultimate Peg Pack
Meli Stewart (Auckland, NZ)

Such great pegs, I love these. Who’d have thought pegs could be exciting? But they are. Nice feel to them, perfect springiness and love that there are different sizes. Great product!

Sleek and effective!

I having been using my squeegee for a couple of weeks now and am loving it! It is high quality and looks so much nicer than any plastic squeegees, and works amazingly too. Highly recommend!

Chopsticks

I like everything about these chopsticks. They aren’t slippery so they’re really easy to use, they’re solid, high quality and beautiful. I bought the multi colored set, but my children fought over the rainbow ones, so I bought an extra set of rainbows too. 🤪 I also bought a set to gift and I will definitely be ordering more. They’re a quality gift that you can be proud to give.
