21 Best Eco Friendly Gifts, for Him & Her + Sustainable Gift Ideas

21 Best Eco Friendly Gifts, for Him & Her + Sustainable Gift Ideas

A curated list of the best eco friendly gifts and sustainable gift ideas, featuring environmentally friendly decor, clothing and accessories for environmentalists, him and her — plus affordable gift options under $25.

Firstly, good on you for clicking through to view this curated collection. We think it’s important to bring awareness to conscious consumerism whenever possible — and choosing to purchase eco friendly gifts over non-environmentally gifts is a great and easy way to start spreading the message of sustainable consumption. We know there are a ton of things to consider when curating for gifts. There’s age, gender, aesthetic preference, uniqueness, and so much more. So, in curating for the best eco friendly gifts, we tried to narrow in and focus on everyday clothing and accessories that are suitable for both ‘him’ and ‘her’ (in gift language). You’ll find women’s tops made of organic cotton; women’s Fair Trade, handmade jewelry; sunglasses made of natural wood; bags and watches made of eco friendly, vegan leather alternatives; and a few more products that’ll help you to reduce waste and lower your carbon footprint. Of course, overall, you’ll find products that make for awesome, fun and unique gifts (at least in our opinion). We hope you enjoy this curated list of the best eco friendly gifts! If you do, let us know in the comments and be sure to leave a review.

Handmade, Eco Friendly, Vegan Slim Wallet, Made from Sustainable Cork, in Dark Brown.
By: Corkor

Editor's Note

You may be wondering why a product made out of cork is on our list of the best eco friendly gifts. Well, there’s a few reasons. Cork is a natural, biodegradable material, meaning – relative to let’s say a synthetic wallet made out of polyester – that it will naturally break down in the environment when it’s inevitably thrown away and therefore won’t end up significantly damaging marine wildlife like other plastic goods. Additionally, cork is harvested in a relatively environmentally friendly way. The cork tree doesn’t need to be cut down to harvest the cork material – the bark is simply removed and able to grow back on the exterior of the tree. So, a cork wallet makes for a great eco friendly gifts.

Hand-Woven, Convertible Crossbody Tote Bag, Made from Reclaimed Seatbelts and Recycled Plastic, in Grey, Black & Brown.
By: Harveys

Editor's Note

Not only is this one of the more unique eco friendly gifts of this collection, it’s also rather innovative. This cross-body bag is made from reclaimed seatbelts and recycled plastic. The strap and the weaved pattern on the exterior of the bag are all upcycled seatbelts from disposed cars, trucks, etc. If you have the time and a few spare seatbelts, you can even try making this bag yourself. It’s a fun DIY, eco friendly gift idea.
