With the Gift Giving season soon upon us, now is an opportunity to consider how we may show our support, gratitude and love for our beloved family, friends and for some our community. And in doing this, we also have the opportunity to be mindful of giving gifts that are not only kind for our friends but also kind for our body and importantly kind for our earth.
Avoid shipping delays and lighten your footprint by giving a beautiful nurturing experience for as a gift. This means less packaging and less resourches used. And most of us remember and value memorable experiences for years to come. Hot air ballooning, a pampering massage or a holiday somewhere exotic (in Australia of course)
And gifting an experience may offer the reciever something that they desparately need or want but would not usually gift to themselves.
Sustainable or Packaging-free
The beauty of an online gift, a subscription or an experience is you’re not using plastics for gift wrapping or reems of paper that generally features around this time.
There are many brands who have changed their packaging to bio-degradable or recyclable. In addition, the products themselves are becoming more environmentally aware. For an example many beauty brands are now offering chemical free natural products that are kind our skin and to the planet.
Here’s a selection of brands and websites to check out that offer sustainable or packaging free products and / or with all natural ingredients:
Gifting a Donation to a Charity
There are plenty of charities that arrange an easy gift to extend to someone, perhaps there is a particular issue or charity that the person you are giving to is really passionate about?
Gifting a donation, membership or subscription to their cause shows that you acknowledge what is important to them and support their passion.
Here are a few examples;
