I’m taking the week off this week. I’m passing over the reigns to the lovely Caroline for this weeks’ guest blog post, who has written a fantastic Eco Warriors Gift Guide, filled with lots of great ideas for the green queen in your life. Please show her some love and check out the fab products she’s showcased for us.
Hi, my name is Caroline and I’m over at Enviroline Blog! My blog raises awareness surrounding environmental and mental health topics. I’m so happy to be guest posting today on Lauren’s blog 🙂 Today’s post is going to be the ultimate gift guide for eco warriors 🌍 I really love buying from small businesses so all the gifts will are from Etsy. Enjoy! Thank you so much to Lauren for letting me guest post on her blog! As well as my blog, you can find me over at Instagram or Twitter.
First up we have bamboo socks from KraftsandKeepsakes. Socks are so great because it’s the kind of gift you can buy for anyone. I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t love to receive a good pair of socks. They sell a wide variety of cute designs, are super comfy & are eco-friendly. What more could you want? This specific duo box of socks costs £14.99, but they sell single pairs of socks as well as bigger multipacks.
This lovely gift box is from ElizabethandErnest. It includes a natural soap bar, soy wax tealight candle and a bag of vegan pick ‘n’ mix! This is the perfect sustainable gift for your friends or family who are isolated or need a little pick me up. It costs £7.55 so is completely affordable too.
This is for all the candle lovers out there! The Flame Game Candle Company is created by Ellie who launched just last month. She sells handmade, vegan candles with no animal-derived ingredients. Rose is a wonderful scent that has restorative qualities and the scent payoff of these will make the whole room smell delicious. Along with the ones above, Ellie sells individual candles & has Easter styled ones too!
This product is for all the plant lovers! You can buy this print with or without the hanger, for £20 or £35. This is a bit more expensive than the other products in this gift guide, but I couldn’t resist adding it in. The design is on recycled paper. KathrynChurnDesigns sells a lovely collection of hand-drawn pieces.
You can’t give a present without a card… well you could but then you’d miss out on one of these awesome cards! There’s has been such a step forward in eco-friendly cards recently and I’ve been loving it. This card is recyclable, vegan inked and completely plastic-free which is amazing but along with that, there’s a pack of seeds AND a tree gets planted for each card you buy! This specific card costs £2.99 so is really affordable. 1TreeCards has planted over 195,000 trees to date.
Using a bar of soap instead of liquid soap in a plastic bottle is a great step to take towards going plastic-free. HappyBaggie sells natural oatmeal soap bars with a variety of scents. I love how bright and colourful they are – I would definitely be buying the watermelon one! One soap bar costs around £5.50; you can get a pack of 3 or 4. Along with this, HappyBaggie sells other eco-friendly products so are definitely worth checking out.
Last but definitely not least, SewingtheSeedsgifts sells wildflower seed hearts for every occasion. I got the Mother’s Day version for my mum and she loved them! They are only £2.99 and you can choose what colour tissue paper & ribbon/twine they come in. Such a cute little add-on gift 💓. Wendy also sells handmade make-up remover pads with a matching wash bag.
