Support local with these 5 eco-friendly gift ideas
Want to avoid plastic products when buying gifts this Christmas? The good news is your spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing eco-friendly options. Here are 5 ideas to spoil the loved ones in your life (young and old!) while shopping small and local. And they’re priced from as little as $15.
1. Make bath time fun for the kids – Honeysticks
Honey Sticks are a clever Kiwi company renowned for their superb range of crayons. We love that they’re made from 100% pure beeswax and food-grade pigments – priced from $14.99 a pack. Their range now also includes gorgeous eco-friendly bath colours, bath crayons and so much more.
2. Reusable drink bottles that are a work of art – Flox
Who wants to drink water from a plastic bottle when you could be using this gorgeous flask, designed by the talented Kiwi artist Flox. It’s a statement piece that’ll help your loved ones reach their daily water intake with ease – because they’ll never want to leave it at home!
3. Give a living gift – The Plant Project
This present idea doesn’t get much greener! You’ll find the most gorgeous indoor plants at The Plant Project with stylish pots to match. From elegant hanging varieties to large leafy friends, there’s an option to suit everyone on your list and they offer nationwide shipping too.
4. Bee-friendly planting without the hassle – NZ Seed Bombs
These are a great stocking stuffer! If you’re wanting to help our bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects, order a pack or two of NZ Seed Bombs. Simply throw each ‘bomb’ into the garden and, when the conditions are ideal for germination, they’ll break apart in the rain and sprout to provide a much-needed food source.
5. Hair and body samplers – Ethique
We’ve all familiar with classic Christmas cookie and chocolate samplers, but here’s a version that’s better for the planet and a treat to use. Ethique bars have a cult following and their gorgeous hair, body and face gift range and mini-sized samplers are adorably petite, oh-so practical and friendly on the wallet.
