Eco Friendly Christmas Gift Guide 2013


Eco Friendly Christmas Gift Guide 2013

I've searched the interwebs and selected some eco friendly gifts for around the home. When creating these lists I always go for items I would be happy to receive so I hope you feel the same about my choices.

Below are the links, working left to right, top to bottom through the pictures above, none of which are sponsored or affiliated links. 

I spotted Fi's Made By Me shop over on Folksy (click here). I loved the idea of upcycling old cutlery and I feel as if any gardener would like these plant labels

Sticking with the theme of gardening Kabloom Seedbom (nigelsecostore.com) caught my eye. According to the blurb you can fling these into the garden and let nature do the rest.


I came across a number of sites selling recycled glassware with serving dishes from old wine bottles and tumblers made from beer bottles.

A favourite website of mine is Not On The High Street. On this site I discovered a tableware collection by Mocha made from sustainable bamboo , some gorgeous organic cotton shopping bags printed using non toxic dyes and a cute notebook made with 100% recycled paper and vegetable oil based inks.

My next pick was one for the kiddies with these fair trade jute storage bags. I also thought they could double up as Santa's gift bag under the tree. ethicalsuperstore.com

Lastly, I selected a vintage inspired print which has been upcycled from books. I've seen these on several websites and there are lots of different designs. "You're My Cup of Tea" was the one that caught my attention on protecttheplanet.co.uk

  2. I love everything on this list! Especially the recycled book print idea, would look great in the kitchen! The fair trade storage bags would be great for toys, my Dad would love the recycled cutlery in his garden, and those glasses are great - we have two tumblers and two large wine glasses (upside down bottles) and they've lasted ages :) x
