You may have read my post yesterday about how to make more eco-friendly Christmas card choices, and it might have made you think about how to be make greener Christmas gift choices too.

Christmas is a time of mass consumption which is terrible for the planet, but we can make more environmentally friendly choices when it comes to buying Christmas gifts.

Buy less

Firstly, buy less. Don’t buy for the sake of it. We use the four gift rule in our household for the kids, slightly edited to “something you want, something you need, something to eat, something to read.”

It stops us going overboard with presents and gives them a good variety of gifts. The something they need is usually clothing, like a new pair of pyjamas, underwear or a coat.

For something to eat the kids get some delicious vegan snacks.

Something they want is their choice and usually a toy. Bella has LEGO this year (plastic I know, but it can be resold and never thrown away after use as it holds its value). Reuben has a skateboard and guitar!

And of course, something to read is books. Bella opted for stone age books as it’s her topic at school!

We also make better choices when wrapping Christmas gifts and you can read more about that in this blog post from last year: Eco-friendly alternatives to wrapping paper #CutTheWrap

Buy natural eco-friendly gifts

To make the best choices when choosing Christmas gifts and opting for a greener Christmas, you need to make some eco-friendly choices when shopping.

Firstly, avoid plastic as much as you can. I really hate Christmas crackers with the rubbish plastic gifts that inevitably end up in landfill a week later! The same with cheap plastic toys that break or are difficult to pass on to be reused when they’re no longer wanted.

Also avoid toiletries packed in excessive plastic and containing harmful chemicals. The same with candles and other smellies. Choose natural beauty products and vegan soy wax candles scented with natural essential oils.

It’s possible to make better choices with gifts when it comes to the packaging and the contents of the gifts to ensure planet friendly choices are made.
