Green Gifts For Eco-Aware Friends And Family

November 26, 2007 by SheFindsHenley

In case you haven't noticed, everyone's going green these days. From most expensive cars and luxurious eco-resorts down to basic resuable grocery bags, protecting the environment is the ultimate in chic.

So you should have no problem shopping for eco-aware friends. In fact, we think giving green gifts is also a great way of helping bring new converts into the fold (ahem, Uncle Bill who still says only wusses drive hybrids). With so many great choices out there, the only problem you'll have is deciding what to buy. Here are our top five suggestions…

1. If you're continually outbid on eBay for the Anya Hindmarch Not A Plastic Bag, consider these colorful totes from SKN ($25 for one, $100 for all five). Although they're meant for carrying around groceries, we love the design so much we think they'd also be great to take to the gym, the cafe, or anywhere else you'll be going this holiday season.

2. For some gals, nothing beats great skin care products. Luckily, there are loads of fantastic organic skin care lines from which to choose. Terralina's face ($42) and body moisturizers ($28) keep winter's dry skin at bay without exposing your skin to harmul chemicals, or try a Pomega5 Cleansing Bar ($18) or some patouchli-scented foaming face wash from Origins Organics ($25).

3. Normally we would slap someone in the face if they gave us cleaning supplies. What is that implying? But Oprah's audience members couldn't have been more excited when she announced that she was giving them the Shaklee Get Clean Starter Kit ($89.60), and we second the sentiment. Eco-friendly cleaning products have become all the rage, and they make a great gift since they tend to be a bit pricier than their chem-filled counterparts. Oh–and we know this makes us sound really superficial, but they also look great. We'd much rather have our cabinets stocked with this pretty packaging than the other, uglier stuff. Be sure to read our full guide to keeping your house eco-clean.

4. Just because you or your loved one is a total designer whore doesn't mean you can't go green. Stella McCartney released her own line of organic beauty products this past year, and her organic clothing has been a hit for years. Phillip Lim has also introduced his own eco-friendly designs at Barneys, as has Barneys own CO-OP line.


5. Even shoes come in organic fabrics now. Simple Shoes creates their line of earth-saving footwear using all recycled materials. While we wouldn't wear these to a fancy cocktail party, we do think they make for a great casual option that will keep both your feet and Mother Earth happy.

6. Need a gift for the ultimate hostess? Try a Gourmet Dinner Party Kit which can help bring a little green to the holiday dinner table. The kits include candles to set the mood, all the custom stationare you'll need (invites, envelopes, menu cards, and place cards) plus recipes and all the non-perishable organic ingredients you'll need (you'll need to purchase the others). We think the kit for an 8-person dinner party ($49.99) could make planning New Year's Eve quite a bit easier, especially since the menu includes wine pairing recommendations.
