23 Eco-Friendly Gifts for the Tree-Hugger
The holidays bring cheer and excitement, but sometimes, they also bring a lot of excess—gadgets that get tossed to the side after a few weeks, new clothes you don't actually need, products packaged in enormous amounts of plastic and wrapping that goes right in the trash. The whole thing can be a headache for those trying to do their part for Mother Nature. But gift exchanges don't have to be this way. From ethically-made, long-lasting clothing and accessories to products that make a zero-waste lifestyle attainable, we rounded up 23 environmentally-conscious gift ideas that any tree-hugger will appreciate.
Allbirds Wool Runners
The Allbirds brand is committed to sustainability, creating shoes from tree fiber that uses 95% less water than cotton, wool that uses 65% less energy than typical materials, recycled plastic water bottles to make laces, and renewable sugarcane from Brazil to craft the soles. And if all that sounds too good to be true, you should know that they’re also, in our opinion, the comfiest shoes ever created.
Kypris Moonlight Catalyst
For the environmentally-conscious beauty lover, consider this revitalizing serum by Kypris, which uses natural, organic, sustainable ingredients like fermented pumpkin enzymes to soften skin and Hawaiian sea algae to hydrate.
Botanicum: Welcome to the Museum book
Equally enjoyable for kids and adults, Botanicum is a beautifully illustrated guide to plant life that’ll have you eager to learn everything you can on the topic.
Loup Charmant Hydrus Dress
No skintight skinny jeans or fussy straps here—this laid-back, flowy, 100% cotton dress is made for breezy bohemian types.
Bee's Wrap Eco-Friendly Reusable Food Wraps
An alternative to single-use plastic wrap, which doesn’t biodegrade and lingers in the environment for thousands of years, these washable sustainably-sourced beeswax wraps can be used to cover food over and over again. They even have natural antibacterial qualities to keep food fresher.
Coyuchi Organic Sheet Set
Sprout Plantable Graphite Pencils
Made from only naturally and biodegradable components, Sprout pencils are filled with seeds to be repurposed into plants after you no longer need them. Just stick these in some soil, add water and sunlight, and watch them grow into basil, flax, and thyme.
Orgaid Sheet Masks
These sheet masks moisturize and balance skin through proven organic formulas, without any chemical preservatives, alcohols, sulfates, or other harmful ingredients. Plus, they’re not tested on animals, and they come in plastic-free packaging.
Wild White Sage Bundle
The perfect stocking stuffer for a tree-hugger? A cleansing bundle of sage to purify their space.
Cotton Block Print Bandana
The bandana trend is still going strong (they make perfect neck scarves and hair accessories), so gift your environmentalist friend one they’ll feel good wearing. This collection was block printed by hand on Indian cotton in collaboration with Nani Pani, a company that supports artisan communities and sustainable craft.

House of Marley Speaker
House of Marley’s portable Bluetooth speaker is made from responsibly-harvested natural bamboo, reclaimed organic cotton fabric, and renewable hemp to create a stylish design that’s also eco-friendly.
Catbird Tiny Dancer gold earrings
At Catbird, all jewelry is made right in the Brooklyn studio, using ethically-sourced (often recycled) materials and minimizing environmental impact.
Naador Washable Rug
This cool patterned rug was responsibly handmade by Indian artisans from 100% natural cotton with non-toxic dyes. The best part? It’s machine-washable!
Himalayan Salt Lamp
Send some positive vibes to a loved one with a Himalayan salt lamp, which purifies air and emits calm amber light for soothing stress-relief.
Ace & Jig Ashcroft Dress
In an industry notorious for environmental waste and poor working conditions, Ace & Jig stands out as a brand with integrity. The company works closely with artisan weavers in India to create custom textiles, guided by values of slow fashion, no waste, and ecology.
Wabi-Sabi for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers
This classic 1994 book describes the Japanese philosophy of imperfection and humility. It’s a must-read for the philosophy-minded creatives in your life.
Christophe Robin Hydrating Shampoo Bar
Prevent plastic waste by using a shampoo bar instead of a conventional bottle—this vegan one from Christophe Robin blends aloe vera and other natural ingredients to restore hydration to the hair.
Peace Sign Necklace Syd By Sydney Evan
Gift this super-dainty peace sign necklace to your favorite bell-bottom-wearing, ‘70s-loving flower child.
Pai Skincare In Your Element Earth Collection
Pai Skincare’s astrological element collections are designed to channel the needs of each sign, like this Earth set (catered toward Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo signs) that features practical, results-driven rosehip products to balance skin and add radiance.
