hey babes! hope you’re all doing well. today i have a sustainable gift guide for you- and most of these items are under $30! what a steal. perfect for us students, right? all of these items are produced ethically and most of them help reduce waste, so you can give with good conscience <3
let’s get started:
string bag: this bag is perfect for the beach, shopping, or using as a purse! and it’s totally instagramable.
keep cup: i bought a keep cup around two months ago and use it every time i buy coffee. this version is lightweight and dishwashable (not to mention the colors are to die for), but there’s a ton of models!
gold bracelet: who wouldn’t love this delicate, ethically made bracelet? made from real brass so you won’t turn green, and goes with everything.
razor: this is a safety razor and while they take a bit to get the hang of, they reduce waste and save the owner money (the blades cost about 10 cents)! i will be writing a post about my experience soon, but i would totally recommend it.
sweater: the yarn in this sweater is made of recycled blue jeans! how cool is that? when the person you’re gifting can knit, then it’s a fun project, and if not you can buy it ready made.
mask and lip scrub: we could all use a little more moisture, especially in winter, so a mask is definitely in order. for those chapped lips this scrub smells (and tastes) amazing. give them separately or together! lush is 100% cruelty free and uses reusable packaging.
books: i firmly believe that reading is something everyone should do. whether you gift someone your favorite book, a subscription to audible, or a gift card to a bookstore, you really can’t go wrong! if you need book recommendations, read this post.
hope this helps! even though i just wrote a whole post about gifts, remember that christmas isn’t all about material possessions, and cherish the time you have with family and friends. i know i can’t wait to go home and cuddle with my dog, drink coffee with my mom, and see my sister’s new house! comment below what you’re looking forward to most this season.
disclaimer: none of these photos are mine, most of them are from the websites. not sponsored, just products i love/would honestly gift someone.
