Sustainable gift ideas

Let’s talk about gifts. This season is full of special events, where we will spend our time with loved ones. As with many things, marketing and advertisement have turned these events into major consumerist activities. We tend to buy things we don’t need even more during December. So therefore, I’d like to introduce you to some cute, sustainable and loving gifts.

1. Amaranthine skin care gift box.

This super cute box has my favourite products in it. The face oil and the cleansing balm. Both are absolutely magical. Ever since I’ve started using this, which is since before summer, my skin improved tremendously. Read my full review here.

2. GLDN jewellery

Jewellery can say more than a thousand words. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating. However, I do looove a good piece of jewellery. My favourite items are long necklaces and classy earrings, like the ones above. GLDN produces fairly and sustainably. Read more about them in this blog post.

3. Nourished make-up

I came across Nourished via a pop-up store in Amsterdam. They have so many beautiful colours and products in their cosmetics line. I didn’t try them yet, but I hope to do so soon. You can read more about them and their sustainability statement here.

4. Pura Utz fruity accessories

I came across Pura Utz a couple of months ago. Their super cute designs impressed me immediately. So when I saw them in a store in Copenhagen, I was so happy. Everything is made with love in Guatemala and you can see that in everything. The coloured items are perfect to brighten up your winter and they’ll work great as a gift too.

5. Everlane cosy sweaters

You know I love Everlane. And you know I love cosiness. Ever since I’ve received my super comfy and cosy alpaca sweater, I’ve been wearing it. It matches everything and I receive so many compliments. This gift will definitely be appreciated, maybe so much that you want one yourself as well.

6. Reformation gift card

For my birthday in march, I’ve received a gift card from Reformation and I couldn’t be more happy. This brand produces sexy, sustainable clothes, that are definitely one of a kind.

7. Henriette von Grünberg hair accessories

The cutest hair bands and bows, all made with love from natural materials such as silk and cotton. I have a hair band in white silk and I’m doubting about a velvet bow. I think it’s perfect for this time of the year, to brighten up this greyish weather.
