Herfamily Gift Guide: 10 sustainable Christmas gifts for everyone on your list

Are you too dreaming of a green Christmas?

I think most of us, this year maybe more so than ever, are feeling like we need to all make an effort to make Christmas a little less wasteful.

And although big changes are needed on a global scale, change starts at home, with our own habits and lifestyle.

So this Christmas season, we want to gift and receive presents that are both cool and kind to the planet – and we reckon these 10 present below are going to go down a treat with anyone on your list:

1. Emma's So Natural Spiced Orange Candle

These candles smell amazing, and are made in Ireland from high-quality eco soya wax. And it doesn't stop there, the wax is renewable and free from pesticides and herbicides. Soya wax is water soluble so the glass containers can be reused or recycled.

€19.50

2. Jungle Culture Double Edge Reusable Safety Razor in Stainless Steel & Bamboo

These eco-friendly and sustainable reusable safety razors are a far more environmentally friendly alternative to single-use plastic razors. Did you know standard disposable razors are rarely recycled? So we love these ones for a stylish, zero waste alternativ.

£15.99

3. Bkr Water Bottle 500ml

Do you know how terrible all those disposable water bottles are for our planet? We are obsessed with these gorgeous glass and silicone bottles from Bkr – the only problem? You are going to want one in every colour.

£28

4. Brett Balance Board

This plastic-free toy is made in Europe. It has 11 layers of organically-grown beech wood from a sustainable source in Germany plus natural oils and cork. It’s suitable for anyone over three years. Anyone can enjoy it, from kids to grandparents.

€105

5. M Life Eco Luxury Yoga Mat

Lightweight, durable and stylishly designed, it's available in contrasting Rose and Black or Sage and Flint. Want to take up yoga and considering an M-life Yoga Mat as a gift to yourself?

£38

6. Bioblo Eco Rainbow Construction Blocks

This fun and creative construction game has honeycomb bricks that are made to stack, build or balance.

We love how the bricks are washable, and made in Europe using wood from sustainable forests and recycled plastic cups.

They are also BPA-free and phthalate-free.
€52

7. Coconut Kisses Lip Balm

This lip balm has the smell and taste of summer, with coconut blended with lemon essential oil.

Not only will this leave lips soft and kissable, but it is also completely natural and good for your skin.

€4.95

8. Veja Faux Leather Sneakers

Organic & environmentally friendly, it is no wonder that everyone is loving the super-stylish Veja runners these days.

€125

9. Lily Lolo Pressed Blush

We love all the gorgeous products stocked at The Clean Beauty Edit, the Irish all-natural, organic and green beauty emporium. This blush is such a gorgeous stocking filler for a friend, sister or even as a little treat for yourself.

€15
