We know it's this beautiful time of the year again and you are giving a lot of thought on gifting ideas for your beloved ones.

This sustainable gift guide has you covered if you're searching for the ideal eco-friendly gift.

It's crucial to think outside of the box when giving environmentally friendly presents. Because, let's face it, nobody wants one more t-shirt or blouse for the holidays. Instead of giving someone something they'll quickly grow tired of, replace, or discard, you want to give them something they'll love and want to use for years to come. That is always the intention, but with eco-friendly gifts in particular, the main focus is to reduce holiday waste and extend the useful life of each item.

Here are some suggestions for truly one-of-a-kind gifts as well as some of the greatest environmentally friendly presents you can offer someone.

1. Plants

Nature itself is a fantastic eco-friendly gift option! Giving a plant as a gift is never a bad idea because the majority of people who live sustainably will definitely appreciate the initiative! And your options are way too many:

Houseplants, outdoor plants, flower, fruit or vegetable seeds, trees, a pressed plant leaf framed to hang on the wall, you name it!

We would suggest to avoid bouquets of flowers, that usually end up in trash bins. Instead, gift flower seeds as mentioned above, an absolutely sustainable gifting alternative!

2. Re4Earth Stainless Steel Straws
