Remember, if you’re going to give gifts this Christmas or festive season, please make sure they’re eco friendly Christmas gifts. And even better, give Eco Friendly Christmas Gifts without Stuff – which is what this post is all about.
We really don’t want to cause further manufacturing pollution and destruction of resources for gifts.
Eco friendly Christmas gifts without stuff show you’ve thought through your gift-giving and care about the planet. The gifts I recommend are not only green but also unique and interesting too.
Browse through all my pages of eco friendly Christmas gifts (there’s a list at the end of this article) – you’re sure to find something for everyone – and I cover eco friendly Christmas wrapping too.
Eco Friendly Christmas Gifts without Stuff – Give Time!
What’s the one thing we all want more of, but can’t buy?
Time, of course!
So, give the gift of time!
Give a gift of an hour’s babysitting, or baking, or running errands, or computer help, or financial advice, or whatever you’re good at. You don’t have to run around buying a gift, and you know the recipient will appreciate it. I think this is a cool idea! No manufacturing, no wastage, nothing to be stored, no space required, it doesn’t end up in a landfill, it’s a really warm, caring and eco friendly gift!
Eco Friendly Christmas Gifts without Stuff – Give Trees!
Plant a tree as a gift! Trees purify the air (they absorb CO2) and so reduce pollution. They hold soil in place, preventing erosion and landslides. They provide shade, sometimes fruit to eat, and a home for wildlife. Trees provide us with products such as paper, stationery, furniture, ornaments. If you think about the amount of wood products you have used over your lifetime, don’t you think it makes sense to give back a tree? Or several?
Plant trees to give back what you have used, and plant trees as a special gift for a loved one.
In the USA, visit Fast Growing Trees for beautifully packaged tree gifts. They are all trees that are easy to care for and look lovely. Fast shipping makes for easy gifting.
In the UK the Woodlands Trust offers a one year gift membership for £36 (or just £18 if the recipient is over 60). Your recipient will receive:
- A tree dedicated in their name
- A personalised tree dedication certificate
- A unique identification guide for native trees and shrubs
- A directory listing over 1,000 Woodland Trust woods
They also have a fabulous range of gifts for Christmas.
