The 5 best sustainable gifts for this Christmas
Sinterklass? Secret Santa? With your friend? With your family?... and, Christmas?... I know the list of end of the year celebrations seem to never stop. What this also means is that most of us, will probably have to do a dozen gifts during this month. This also means that we are not only receiving presents, but also have to get a dozen of gifts all in one month.
This Christmas take the opportunity to do good
At The Good Gift store we are on a mission. We want to make the world a better place, one gift at a time. This year, thanks to the people who have chosen us for their celebrations, we already supported the planting of more than 600 trees and the recovery of dozens of kilos of ocean plastic. This is why I would like to invite you to make a positive impact during this holiday season. As one of the founders of The Good Gift, there is nothing that makes me happier than when people are able to give a gift with love by making the world a better place.

Check my top 5 sustainable gifts for this end of the year celebrations:
The throw is beautiful as a shawl, blanket or decoration for the couch or as luxurious (hammam) towels, the classic chevron design gives them timeless appeal and versatility. It is made from 60% Recycled Cotton gathered from offcuts of the massive garment industry and 40% Mix of Polyester, Viscose and Rayon.
The candle is made from upcycled wasted vegetable oils, in an old glass wine bottle. A real circular product that prevents the consumption of natural resources and makes you feel the scent of doing good. It is a safe product for your health that helps you to reduce your carbon footprint. One candle prevents the contamination of 150 m3 of water thanks to the reuse of vegetable oils that would otherwise be wasted.
How cool is that? For each Treecelet you buy, you are guaranteed that 3 trees will be planted in a region of your choice (there are 8 regions to choose from). I think that this is a great present for both men and women. My favorite choices for men are the Amazonia, Kenya and Haiti bracelets. My favorites for women are the Tanzania Gold, Indonesia and Madagascar. But they are all great for everyone.
There are hundreds of reasons why the candle industry is broken. Animal-based waxes, unsustainable processes, single use packaging and more… At The Good Gift we have a selection of several sustainable brands to make amazing eco candles for all tastes.
Sustainable and stylish, our bamboo thermos and mugs are crafted from responsibly sourced, organic bamboo.
Four reasons why we love bamboo:
1. it is the fastest growing plant on the planet. It can grow up to 0.9 meters in a day, under appropriate climate conditions.
2. it releases 30% more oxygen than other plants, and absorbs more CO2.
3. it does not require fertilizers.
4. It is super strong, great for high quality products!
Bamboo bottles are a must-have for every person who wants to get greener!
Our latest addition to our catalogue. Are you tired of seeing your basil die every 15 days? Our new Greenfinity sets will help you grow plants and herbs forever. Have a look at this nice explanatory video of this pot that is here to revolutionize the way you get your spices and you take care of your plants, at home and sustainably.
Take this Christmas as an opportunity to make the world a better place and choose a positive impact gifts. I hope this list provides some inspiration to give love to your friends, colleagues, family and yourself during this last month of the year!
Enjoy the holidays!
