10 Gift Ideas for the Tree Hugger in your Life

Though a fun and happy time to spend with family, the holiday season often focuses heavily on consumerism and gift giving. Unfortunately, this can cause stress for tree huggers like myself who do their best to shop consciously and make smart choices that help rather than harm the planet. Fortunately, we’ve whipped up this sweet list of ecofriendly gift ideas for the tree hugger! Of course, we love all of these products, and we hope you do too.

In our opinion, ecofriendly living starts with personal choices. Therefore, sharing gifts with your loved ones that benefit the planet helps spread the eco love! Furthermore, the more we share these products with other people, the more popular they become. With that said, these are not only gift ideas for the tree hugger, but everyone will fall in love with these products! So, try having an eco holiday season with these awesome gift ideas!

1. Compost Bin

The gift that keeps giving! How about a compost tumbler or worm factory for your favorite plant loving friend? In gifting a composter, you also gift a regular supply of nutrient rich soil that will make your gardening friends so happy.

2. Handmade Soap or Lotion Bars

In our opinion, you can’t go wrong with a fragrant, handmade soap bar.  Therefore, skip the artificially scented soap bars for something natural, organic, and chemical free! Also, lotion bars are the perfect shape and size for stocking stuffers. If you check out the Tiny Yellow Bungalow online shop, you can find these awesome vegan lotion bars!

3. Handmade Gift

How about a truly thoughtful gift of something you made yourself! If you have a tight budget this year, this option definitely helps. In fact, you can find loads of do-it-yourself gift ideas on Pinterest. How about a Mason Jar Bird Feeder or a relaxing  Homemade Coffee Scrub??

4. Safety Razor with Accessories

Your tree hugger friends will love this ultimate gift in sophistication and simple elegance, a safety razor! Personally, we think that a double edge razor not only looks gorgeous in the bathroom but gives the closest shave. Additionally, it eliminates the use of disposable plastic razors.

5. Travel Coffee Mug

There are so many cool travel coffee mugs  on the market these days. In fact, we can find no excuse for using disposable coffee cups. Therefore, pick out a mug for your friend in their favorite color or with a cute design. Personally, we love the minimalist and modern look of these eco travel coffee mugs from Keep Cup.

6. Stainless Steel Lunch Container

So, stainless steel is the new black.  Really, how fabulous would you feel to carry your lunch in one of these gorgeous stainless steel three layer tiffins?? Not only are they cute, but they’re an affordable gift for your favorite planet loving pal. Saying no to plastic tupperware containers has never been so stylish.

7. Herb Garden Kit

If you’ve got an apartment dwelling friend with a green thumb, we know just the gift for them: an herb garden kit. With this gift, you can grow herbs in your kitchen window sill, no backyard needed, and use the fresh herbs in your recipes.


8. Stainless Steel Water Bottle

Help your tree hugging friend stay hydrated daily with a sweet, stainless steel water bottle. Personally, we love the Klean Kanteen bottles because of their durability. In fact, these bottles are perfectly useful for a day at the office as well as a day hiking in the mountains.

9. Cute Reusable Shopping Bag

Knowing myself, I’m sure that most eco enthusiasts have a stash of reusable shopping bags lying around the house. But, does your tree hugging friend have a “Home is Where the Cat is” canvas tote?! There are heaps of cute printed totes available online!

10. Experience Gift

Rather than gifting a physical item, choose to gift an experience this year! Depending on their interests, you could gift your friend tickets to see one of their favorite bands, pottery or painting classes, or an online subscription to Audible, the audio book website. The options are limitless!

Enjoy choosing the perfect gifts this year, y’all!
