Low-Waste Holiday Gift Guide

Low-Waste Holiday Gift Guide

With the holidays approaching FAST, you’re likely stressing about what to get your loved ones. You want to make sure you’re buying unique things they’ll love, but you also want to generate as little waste as possible. In this post, I’m sharing 5 eco-friendy gift ideas that your family and friends will actually use (and enjoy):


Spa gift card

Hear me out. For the longest time, I was unsure if people liked spa gift cards. Turns out, they do! This is the perfect gift for moms, friends, and siblings who rarely get the time off for themselves. It’s an excellent way to relax and enjoy me-time in the winter (especially here in NJ). The idea here is that you’re gifting an experience. Check out Sojo Spa in NJ and see what I mean.



Ahh, the gift of scent! Not only are candles aesthetically pleasing, but they also have a wealth of wellness benefits too like relieving stress, uplifting your mood, and calming the mind. Take a look at our Winter Collection for the perfect seasonal gift: 



Fresh mint meets a hint of cedar and citrus, filling your home with the crisp, calming scent of winter’s evergreens.

Notes: Grapefruit, mint, rhubarb, lavender, eucalyptus, and cedar leaf. 



With the warmth of the fire, the freshness of fir trees, and the spice of your favorite winter treats, Festive encompasses the sweet scent of the holiday spirit.

Notes: Warm figs, Cassis, Cranberry, Fir, Pine, Cedarwood


Peppermint Bark 

Bright peppermint and warm vanilla bring the buzz of the holidays in from the cold, revitalizing your mood and your space. 

Notes: Peppermint, Cinnamon, Vanilla, and Nutmeg


I mean, who can resist a luxurious candle? Plus, ours come in a reusable cement vessel - talk about a low-waste gift.


Blueland Holiday Hand Soap Set

If you’re as obsessed with all things refillable (like I am), you’re going to LOVE this hand soap set from Blueland.


This gift box comes complete with a hand soap dispenser and 12 scented soap tablets, making for a beautifully thoughtful (and low-waste) gift. Plus, once you have the dispenser, you can just purchase the tablets! 




Don’t forget the plant moms! Plants are the perfect gift for your nature lovin’ friends. They elevate a space and are a gift that truly keeps on giving for years to come. We recommend Planterina for finding unique plants your friends and family are sure to love. 


Tea boxes

It’s getting cold out there! Warm up your friends and family by gifting them an assortment of teas! Create your own custom tea bento box from Tea With Tae. Tea is a fun, healthy, and practical gift for your loved ones. Plus, these ones are also made from biodegradable materials. 


Don’t stress, be blessed 

I hope this gift guide helps to save you a lot of time (and headaches) this holiday shopping season. And don’t forget - the best gift of all is spending time with the ones we love. Don’t stress, be blessed.
