the minimal that is good

choose your sustainable gifts to celebrate Christmas with simplicity

We are used to think about Christmas as a great day, characterized by bright colors, plenty of food and gifts, happy background music, games and fun. But Christmas is not just this: it is also a simple Holyday, a day to return to one’s origins, to one’s family and to the taste for living things with simplicity. Often, beyond the opulent facade, the joy of Christmas is in fact enclosed in some really simple details: the scent of homemade cinnamon biscuits, the sounds muffled by snow, the light crackling of the fire in the fireplace, the hug of a relative we hadn’t seen for a long time, the hours spent with friends in front of an old Christmas movie. This selection of gift ideas is for those who want to make beautiful, original and sustainable gifts, concrete and usable all year round, without useless frills.

In this board, you will find many proposals to amaze your loved ones with ideas for sustainable gifts that will allow you to rediscover the beauty of simplicity.

Monochromatic garments, simple shapes, direct messages, classic designs that never go out of fashion: these are the elements that characterize all the proposals of this selection, in which you can find sustainable gifts that really please everyone, because that’s the beauty of simplicity! Furthermore, the gift you will make will be as relevant today as tomorrow: unlike noisy colors, patterns and designs that are popular today but are destined to seem out of place in two or three years, all these objects are characterized by a minimalist aesthetics, which turns out to be actual today but which will still be over time.

Some of our proposals are also unisex, to really give you the freedom to decide at the last moment.

When we see an object that we like, we often think of buying it for Christmas but, before completing the purchase, we are overwhelmed by doubts. Will we have the opportunity to see the friend we are thinking of before the Holidays, or will we find ourselves with an undelivered gift still hidden in the storage closet in January? What if for our mother, we find a more suitable idea in that little shop where we plan to go a few days before Christmas? The beauty of these gift ideas is exactly this: in their simplicity, they really adapt (almost) to everyone and to every occasion, so you can buy what you like and then choose who to use it for.

Would you like some examples? The backpack by Fjällräven is made of recycled plastic bottles and it’s a timeless classic, suitable for men and women of all ages. This sustainable variation of the backpack that we all know, having become a true fashion icon for Millennials, will surely win the heart of the lucky one who will receive it as a gift. It could also be the perfect solution to make sustainable gifts even to those who do not expect them and are not attentive to these issues: a cult object, rethought in an ethical key, will certainly be appreciated by those who will receive it as a gift.

Another proposal really suitable for anyone is the hat by Dedicated: the one you find on our board is pink, but on the brand’s website there are many colors to choose from, all in practical one size and unisex models.
So, by choosing these sustainable gifts, you are sure not to make mistakes… and, in the worst case, you will find yourself with an article that you can surely personally wear!

Minimalist and simple does not mean without personality.

Indeed, many of the selected articles have a strong personality and are not afraid to show it: this is why they are not timorous to shout their messages to the world. They are sustainable gifts suitable for the friend or family member who is most sensitive to the themes of ecology, who will be proud to bring with them – and to show – their ideas wherever they go. Because it’s time to take care of our planet, and it’s time to remind it to everyone!

The t-shirt by Dedicated is perhaps our favorite example of a “talking” product. The message “Support your local planet” is embroidered on the front and reflected in every t-shirt detail: made from 100% GOTS and Fairtrade, certified organic cotton, it is produced in an Indian family-run establishment that has over 2,000 employees and is one of the main suppliers of certified and sustainable fabrics.

If this model is masculine, the t-shirts with a message are really available for everyone. A female model that we particularly like, for example, is the t-shirt by Wholesome Culture that reminds us that “The best things in life are (cruelty) free”. The message is imprinted on the shirt, but it is also the philosophy behind all brand’s activities: it offers a wide range of cruelty free products, made in full respect of the animals, accessible and truly appreciable by anyone. Part of the brand’s profits are donated annually to environmental non-profit organizations that work to help and support animals. In short, everything we imagine when we think of the word “sustainable gifts”!

And for the little ones? It is never too early to express your ideas! Reminds us of it, for example, the t-shirt by Ecoalf which, precisely because “There is no planet B”, is made exclusively with recycled materials (cotton and polyester). Furthermore, 10% of the profits go to charity to help clean up our oceans.

Shoes, water bottles, bags... everything can express our desire to live sustainably!

If the “message” t-shirts have always been a great classic of clothing that wants to express ideas, among our proposals for sustainable gifts you will also find less common but equally effective alternatives.

The sneakers by Ecoalf, for example, have their message imprinted on the sole and are made of 100% recycled nylon. The water bottle by Katharine Hamnett, created exclusively for a leading player in the sector such as 24Bottles, reminds us of the values of ethics and sustainability every time we drink a sip of water, highlighting the high human cost that the economic fast fashion has.

Despite all these proposals, haven’t you found the product with the message for you, or for friends you would like to give sustainable gifts to? No worries, the customizable shopping bag by Apolis is what you were looking for. In addition to being able to host the message you prefer, this practical bag has all the features necessary to be counted among the sustainable gifts par excellence: it is durable and made to last, because it can carry loads up to 45 kilos; it is made only with ecological materials, because it is in natural golden jute fiber; it is ethical, because it is produced in Bangladesh by working mothers who receive salaries that comply with Fairtrade standards, a share of annual dividends and an adequate pension fund. What more could you ask for from a shopping bag?

Because dressing minimal and sustainable doesn't mean giving up your femininity!

Are products with a direct message not for you? Do you want to find a gift idea for a dear female friend, a colleague or a relative attentive to the issues of sustainability and ethics, in love with simple forms and minimalist designs, but who don’t want to give up feminine aspect in clothing and accessories? Here too we have many ideas for sustainable gifts that are right for you.

The bag by Miomojo is a true example of “sophisticated simplicity”: made of high quality synthetic and vegan leather, it is perfect for every moment of the day and adapts perfectly to any type of clothing.

Looking for sustainable gifts that better express the male essence? Also in this case, in our gallery you can find many proposals. Our favorite? The shirt by Armedangels, made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton. It is simple and elegant, suitable for the office or for an evening with friends. Because this is precisely the spirit of our proposals: products suitable on several occasions, which you will never tire of wearing.

This Christmas, choose to make sustainable gifts and rediscover the beauty of simplicity: you will find out the essence of the Holidays and make gifts that will win the heart of those who will receive them!
