All the force of nature enclosed
in eco-friendly gifts
to put under the Christmas tree
Many of us, when thinking about Christmas, automatically imagine the city atmosphere: the lights shining in the main streets, the decorated fir in the central square, the illuminated and adorned shop windows, the roast chestnut seller on the street corner. It is an image of Christmas that comes from our daily lives, and from the places where we are used to live – and to observe – during the Holyday season. Outside our everyday life, however, there are a thousand other suggestions that could be associated with Christmas and that come directly from the world of nature: fir forests where the snow descends slowly, reindeer herds running free in the tundra, the fire crackling in a mountain hut, a robin that sings on a snowy branch… these are just some examples of the winter atmospheres that nature gives us outside the borders of our cities.
Nature, in its complexity, gives us an infinity of suggestions, all different from one another.
It can be sweet, placid and calm; just as it can have a wild, impetuous, unstoppable and uncontrollable appearance. We have tried to enclose all these facets in a selection of gift ideas that can be appreciated by all nature lovers. Not only the aesthetics recalls nature, but these eco-friendly gifts respect the environment, are produced with natural or recycled raw materials and are made sustainably: because those who love nature respect it, even – and especially – at Christmas.
The numerous facets of nature are immediately evident by browsing our board. Among the eco-friendly gifts we offer, there are some that highlight the sweeter side of nature, in very tender clothes designed for young and old.
Tender or wild? Find your eco-friendly gifts inspired by nature and its many facets
From Wooly Organic comes the perfect proposal to make baby- and eco-friendly gifts: the sweetness of the animal kingdom and its puppies is enclosed in this soft bathrobe with bunny ears, made from 100% organic cotton to dry and cuddle even the most delicate skin. But also for adults there is no lack of the prettiest and “cuddly” proposals. For example, the t-shirt by ThokkThokk is the perfect gift idea for the cat-loving friend. Made of GOTS and Fairtrade certified organic cotton, it is decorated with many cute caricatures of the most beloved feline ever.
Are you instead looking for something that enhances the wild side of nature? The sleep mask by Anek is the perfect accessory for your Christmas travels: hand-made with production waste coming from the textile industry, it is one of our eco-friendly gifts with something extra, which will surely make your airplane neighbor envy!
Would you prefer a gift that releases the wild essence of nature with less aggressiveness? The scarf by Thought Clothing is made of bamboo and is perfect to recall natural world colors and brighten all your winter outfits.
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when thinking about the beauty of nature? Puppies, of course!
It is precisely for this reason that in our selection of eco-friendly gifts inspired by the animal world, you will find lots of proposals for babies and children of all ages. Because when children and puppies meet, it is impossible to resist (at least for us!).
For the little ones, we offer a complete set at a very special price: Frugi’s gift idea includes a hat, a body and a playsuit, all wrapped up in a small themed bag. All the products in the set are decorated with very nice little bees and are made of organic cotton, sustainable and perfect for the most delicate skin. Do you prefer to donate a toy? The bunny by Wooly Organic will surely become every child’s best friend! This too is made only with sustainable and safe materials for the little ones: organic cotton for the outside and Oeko-Tex certified corn fibers for the padding.
Within our gallery of eco-friendly gifts there is certainly no shortage of gift ideas for older children! The dungarees by Baby Mori is in organic cotton and it is perfect for children from 0 to 4 years old who love adventure: comfortable and practical for playing outdoors, it is printed with images of Gruffalo, beloved character from children’s literature, discovering the forest.
The hoodie by Frugi is another good idea among eco-friendly gifts for children up to 4 years old: made of organic cotton, it represents the world of endangered animals. It will surely become the favorite clothing item for all young explorers: it is easy to wear, perfect for outdoor play, funny and educational, because it teaches young people to respect and safeguard nature.
Is it time to start kindergarten? Then there is no more suitable gift than this backpack by Coq en Pâte, made in organic cotton canvas, printed with ecological and non-toxic colors with the image of a majestic polar bear!
Our proposals for eco-friendly gifts can be super nice!
In our gallery, there is no lacking of proposals for eco-friendly gifts inspired by the world of nature even for adults. Do you have a friend who has passed his tenth birthday since a few decades, but does not give up a touch of irony in his clothing choices? How to resist at the men’s swimsuit by Thinking Mu decorated with many small whales? To remind us of the importance of safeguarding the environment in which even these immense sea mammals live, the costume is made entirely of recycled PET.
Still on the subject of marine animals, the woman’s t-shirt by People Tree reminds us with a touch of irony to do our part to safeguard our planet. The t-shirt is made of GOTS and Fairtrade certified organic cotton and is part of a project created in collaboration with BBC Earth. Alongside this t-shirt, in fact, many other different products are available on the website of the brand – such as bags, dresses and overalls – all inspired by the world of endangered animal species. Besides sharks, sea turtles, polar bears and cheetahs are thus placed, to remind us that, if we do not do something to protect the Earth today, soon we will have only stock images of so many animal species.
Protecting the Earth is fundamental, otherwise soon we will have only stock images of so many animal species
The jewelry world also offers many proposals for eco-friendly gifts.
A brand that works in this field and that we really like is definitely A Beautiful Story: among our natural inspiration proposals you will find the branch-shaped earrings, symbolizing purity, peace and harmony; and the bracelet in cotton wax thread inspired by bees, with a dedicated gift card displaying the concepts of love and bond. One last product of this brand that we particularly like is the bracelet with two pendants: one is a moonstone, a symbol of feminine wisdom, protection and balance, the other is a small dragonfly, which metaphorically represents a guiding figure in times of transition and change. What literally made us fall in love with A Beautiful Story and its products is precisely this: its jewels are rich in symbolism and blend Western and Nepalese traditions. A Beautiful Story is in fact a Dutch brand, which actively collaborates with Beads for Life Nepal, a Nepalese cooperative that employs about 30 women as skilled artisans in jewelry manufacturing. The products of this brand, which bring together all the strength of natural elements, are therefore eco-friendly gifts from every point of view: from materials to the manufacturing process, everything in them is highly sustainable.
Finally, among our proposals, you will find something to put on your feet…
Do you want to make eco-friendly gifts without spending too much? Do you want your idea to be nice and original? Then, what’s better than socks! The ones we display are sustainable and cheerful, to be worn even with the most formal clothing.
In our gallery you will find many different models to choose from: there are those by Thought Clothing decorated with dogs and made of bamboo, those by Dedicated with palms and made in organic cotton, those by Bleed Clothing with the fir trees that also contain a high percentage of organic cotton as well and, finally, the gift box with three pairs of organic cotton socks by People Tree inspired by the world of bees.
And if the pampering for your feet were not enough, in our selection of eco-friendly gifts you will also find some examples of footwear. Our favorites? The women’s slipper by Beyond Skin! They are in faux vegan black suede, with the embroidery of a very sweet rabbit, but on the website of the brand you will also find similar with other animals.
With our selection of eco-friendly gifts inspired by the world of nature, you will find so many ideas for all tastes: from the most tender soul to the scratchiest, from the baby to the adult you can make friends and relatives happy with lots of ideas that can literally dress them from head to toe.
