Green Christmas Gifts

Welcome to December! Black Friday is behind us and the Christmas season is in full swing. Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Are you looking for Christmas gift ideas for the hard to buy for or as an alternate to impersonal gifts that are forgotten before the Christmas tree is down? Why not choose a green Christmas gift that gives a little more this year;

Green Christmas Gift Ideas

  • You can never go wrong with the gift of a tree

    Gift of a tree from ReForest London – make a donation to ReForest London, buy a tree gift voucher for friends, family, clients or customers, or sponsor a tree in someone’s name are all great options for tree planting and gifting in London, Ontario

  • A biodegradable pen made from corn starch, with white pine tree seeds in the base – just one idea for a green gift to give this year

    Biodegradable tree seed pen from Tree Canada – Tree Canada has plenty more gift giving ideas, like trees, Tree Canada clothes, mugs, USB sticks, water bottles and more; all in the name of making a greener and healthier living environment for Canadians

  • A stack of books is a gift of hope for those in need

    A stack of books from Plan Canada – education is one of the best ways to improve not only an individual’s life, but the community they live in and possibly the world. Plan Canada also offers many other gifts of hope which change lives.

  • A gift of coffee helps you start your day and makes you feel even better knowing it comes from an Ontario bird-friendly company

    Bird-friendly Coffee – from Birds & Beans in support of Ontario Nature (you can also get holiday cards, Ontario Nature gear and other ideas for green giving)

  • Donate to an eco-friendly, environmentally sound company – Charity Village is a great place to start looking for worthy companies to support this holiday season. Give to a company that gives back.
  • Give the gift of nature that gives back all year

    Gift of Canadian Nature – this symbolic gift from Nature Conservancy Canada is yours, along with a 2016 calendar, when you make a donation.

  • Buy from local, small businesses in your community – When you buy local, you reduce your carbon footprint. And when you buy from a small business you support a family in your community. Those dollars stay right in your hometown, which benefits everyone. Look for handmade items, local crafts and area artists to support. You just might find better quality items and be able to personalize the gifts you give.

When you buy from local, small businesses (like Field to Fork Catering), your gift gives back to your community as well.

Merry Christmas!
