London is in a full festive mood. Christmas markets are popping up across the city while their displays are filled with the most beautiful crafts, handmade goodies and delicious bakes that one can not pass by without buying a single thing. Finally the aroma of mince pies and gingerbread is dwelling from morning till evening, and Christmas songs are playing on repeat in every coffee shop and store maintaining the festive atmosphere all around the city.
In other words - Christmas is just around the corner. Although this is the most wonderful time of the year for most, picking gifts can be a daunting experience especially if you care about the planet as much as we do.
People tend to lookout for the Christmas presents and stocking fillers that can be fitted in those Santa socks 😵 But if you’re hoping of having a green Christmas this year, exciting fillers are not enough. Eco-friendly stocking stuffers can help you achieve your waste-free goals this year.
We put together a list of Eco-Friendly Stocking Fillers that won't cost the Earth. From Pasta Straws to Edible Spoons, if you’re on a tight budget, or in search of some inexpensive small gifts that will delight the whole family, these eco-friendly stocking fillers will fit the bill!
What are some eco-friendly christmas gifts?
Christmas can be very busy and wasteful at the same time. This waste may be leftover food, various packaging, festive clothes or decorations, and it would be a mistake not to mention the presents itself or stocking fillers.
Luckily, there is a huge variety of zero-waste stocking fillers available and a lot of them fit within the tightest budget too!
How to choose exciting eco-friendly stocking fillers?
There are a couple of things you need to consider before choosing any Christmas filler:
Who will receive it?Will it be a random pick, or maybe you know the person who will get the filler? If so, consider the receiver’s age and likes/dislikes, potentially how much of an eco-warrior he/she is. These details will allow you to be as specific as possible with your sustainable presents. And on top of that, the right fillers will be appreciated and won’t go to waste
If you don’t know the person who will receive the fillers, think about something gender and age neutral, something fun and exciting that would make everyone happy. Scroll down to read more about some universal fillers. 😏
