When it comes to finding the ideal Christmas gift, you may be looking for something “original” or “useful,” but what about something “eco-friendly”? Let’s face it: we’ve all been the recipient of a present that was promptly discarded after a few weeks.

Instead of contributing to all of the unnecessary waste that occurs during the most wonderful time of the year, consider being kinder to the environment this holiday season by purchasing eco-friendly gifts for parents, family, and your friends — not only will they appreciate it, but so will the environment!

Eco-Friendly Gifts for Him

Pentire Seaward & Æcorn Bundle

This non-alcoholic plant-based spirit is ideal for a healthy and delicious cocktail. Many zero-alcohol beverages are sickeningly sugary, which is why this new Cornish spirit is a breath of fresh air… it’s a mature, savoury affair with fragrant herbaceousness and salty undertones that go nicely with tonic water.

Pentire is a tribute to the rich plant life that thrives on the nearby headland. A combination of favourable climate, soil pH, and atmospheric moisture allows key botanicals to thrive. They’ve created non-alcoholic spirits that capture these flavours through meticulous distillation, thanks to research and experimentation with local botanists, distillers, and brewers.

Discover Blue Plastic-Free Travel Toiletries 

Give a gift that benefits both you and the environment. Each Christmas, tonnes of rubbish is produced, which ends up in our ocean, but you can still enjoy all of the fun and festivities without the waste.

The Christmas Gift Box includes a selection of plastic-free washroom products with festive scents from fantastic ethical UK manufacturers. All of the products are safe for vegans and provide warmth and comfort on cold winter days.

Seeing plastic products wash into the water every day, contaminating the ocean and killing marine life, demonstrates the need to reform and reassess our consumer decisions. Discover Blue’s Bathroom Boxes and Subscription Service provide easy-to-use ocean-friendly options.

Mr Masey’s Traditional Shaving Kit

Mr Masey’s Shavette Kit includes our fantastic all-stainless steel shavette razor, travel pouch, 8 blades, and a shavette stand. A bottle of their handcrafted lime and cedarwood shaving oil is also included.

Alternatively, opt for their Traditional Kit, which includes a traditional double edge razor, travel pouch, and stand, as well as a pack of double edge blades and a bar of their handmade shaving soap.

Mr Masey is a firm believer that testing items on animals or exploiting animals in the production of such products is fundamentally unethical. With this in mind, each product is cruelty-free and vegan. Carnauba is used instead of beeswax because beeswax is for bees, and they are already having a hard time without us taking things away from them. The pine resin and wax are imported further abroad, but Brighton’s oil components, glassware, and tins are all acquired locally. They utilise the best and toughest shipping cartons to get your item to you, so packaging is reduced to a minimum.

Sole Cup Bottle

SoleCup bottles are composed of high-quality stainless steel and are BPA-free. This preserves the freshness of your beverage without altering its flavour.

Your drink will stay hot for up to 12 hours and cold for up to 24 hours, thanks to our double-walled construction. SoleCup bottles have watertight screw-top lids that prevent leaks and spills, and its vacuum insulation keeps condensation at bay. As a result, you won’t have to worry about putting your bottle in your bag!

SoleCup’s objective is to make drinking more environmentally friendly without sacrificing taste.

They wish to promote the usage of reusable products and reduce the amount of waste generated by single-use items. They promote a reduce, reuse, and recycle mindset, and these values are reflected in the products they’ve introduced to the line. In addition, they’ve made sure that all of their items and packaging are recyclable or biodegradable.
