Some Biofriendly Holiday Gift Ideas To Add To Your 2023 List
Shopping for friends and loved ones, or even for yourself, is not always an easy task. This is especially true when you want to give gifts of a biofriendly, or environmentally-friendly, nature. If you need a little help finding a biofriendly holiday gift for family or friends this Black Friday or Cyber Monday, we’ve got you covered.
Although this list doesn’t cover everything you could get, by any stretch of the imagination, we hope it will give you an idea or two.
Please note, while the list below contains items/gift ideas of our own choosing, this section does contain affiliate links from which we may earn a commission for any purchase made.
Let’s get started:
If you, or someone you love, need new cookware, consider adding this Stainless Steel cookware to your gift list. With stainless steel, you don’t have to worry about harmful chemicals leaching into your food during the cooking process. Non-stick, while it may seem convenient, does have its pitfalls. Opting for stainless steel cookware, or cast iron (which happens to be a very sustainable material), is a healthier and more biofriendly choice.
I know underwear probably does not make the top of your holiday gift list, however, hemp underwear is an eco-friendly gift many may not consider getting for themselves. That’s why we think you should consider WAMA underwear. Trust us when we say, hemp underwear is the sustainable way to go. If you have any doubts, you can check out the product review we did.
If a new bed is in order for yourself, or a loved one, you’ll want to check out PlushBeds. These beds (and their other bedding products) are apparently made with certified organic and natural materials. In addition, PlushBeds’ commitment to sustainability will help you get a good night’s sleep without having to worry about harmful chemicals and toxins. Take advantage of the PlushBeds Black Friday Sale and give yourself the gift of a good night’s sleep.
ECO-FRIENDLY laundry care
While I can pretty much guarantee laundry detergent doesn’t usually make most people’s gift list, you might want to reconsider when it comes to Earth Breeze Eco Sheets. These laundry sheets allow you clean your clothes without the need for plastic containers. The sheets are also vegan and animal-friendly, as well as being hypoallergenic, so they’re good for those with sensitive skin. No matter who you are shopping for, we recommend you Shop Laundry Detergent Eco Sheets!
standing desk converters
Standing desk converters are the kind of gift anyone can use. A standing desk converter can be used on your child’s existing desk, in their college dorm, in your at-home work space, at the office or anywhere you want to stand, instead of sit, while getting your work done. The nice thing about standing desk converters is you don’t need to buy a brand new desk, but you do get the benefits of a standing desk. So, convert your workspace into a flexible, active work area with Standing Desk Converters. Exclusively at FlexiSpot!
We loved the standing desk we got from FlexiSpot, so obviously think a desk converter is a gift worth getting. Check out our review of the Bamboo Standing Desk here.
Everyone could use a reusable bottle (or two or three). If your loved ones don’t have one, you should definitely add it to your list of things to get them. You can opt for a stainless steel water bottle they can use on a daily basis for their coffee, tea or water. These bottles are eco-friendly and non-toxic. They also transport well, so can be taken on walks, on your bike, in the car, to the park or around the office.
If you’re in need of bottles to store your fresh juices, these clear glass bottles with lids are the perfect gift idea. They are eco-friendly and reusable, so will generate far less waste than plastic, single-use bottles.
Solar garden lights
Know someone who likes to spend a lot of time in their garden or yard? Well, these solar garden lights might be just what they need. They’re waterproof, windproof, sunproof, rainproof and they get their power from the sun’s energy. Solar garden lights go well in pretty much any yard and these particular lights add a fun flair you’re sure to enjoy.
Bamboo cooling blanket
Here’s another holiday gift good for family, friends or for you. It’s a bamboo cooling blanket. Blankets made from bamboo are naturally eco-friendly. Plus, the bamboo fibers help absorb moisture and prevent heat from becoming trapped. This makes a bamboo cooling blanket a nice addition to any home as it can be used year-round.
Audible Gift Membership
If you’re looking for a digital gift, consider an Audible gift membership from Amazon. This gift allows its users to stream videos, shows, podcasts (yes, ours included), as well as listen to audiobooks and textbooks in digital formats. There’s no gift box or wrapping required, simply sign up and get started.
Prime student membership
Got a student in college or one who plans to go in the coming year? How about getting them a Prime Student membership? Just like with an Audible gift membership, a Prime Student membership requires no gift box or wrapping paper. However, with this membership your student will have access to prime’s free delivery, movies, sports, games, music, rentable textbooks, try before you buy, photo storage and more. The money you’ll save makes this a win-win for you and your student.
This holiday season is as good a time as any for people to focus on biofriendly holiday gift giving. You don’t have to buy from our list, but we hope we have given you some ideas on where to start. Focus on being eco-friendly. Think reusable and low or zero waste. Think non-toxic and chemical-free. If you can repurpose or reuse items, go for it. If you don’t have anything at home, visit your local thrift store. The options are limitless, you just have to put yourself in the right frame of mind this holiday season….be biofriendly!
