The holidays are upon us and you may be starting to realize that there are a few important people you haven’t crossed off your shopping list yet. Me, for instance—I still haven’t done my shopping for the wonderful people who chase my two-year-old son around and clean up after his painting projects: his preschool teachers.
But don’t worry, there’s still plenty of time to find gifts that show your appreciation and do good for both people and the planet! I’ve scoped out 7 ethical and thoughtful teacher gifts that fit any interests and any budget. Happy shopping!
The holiday season is now firmly upon us, and if you haven’t started your shopping yet, you may be feeling that unique brand of holiday-related stress creeping up on you.
Or perhaps you’ve got most of your gifts picked out already, but there are one or two people on your list that are just impossible to shop for?
Whatever the case may be, you are about to embark on the biggest, baddest, most ultimate ethical holiday gift guide that ever was. If you don’t have an idea for everyone on your list by the time you get to the end of this guide, you have my full permission to just get a gift card and call it a day.
Now then, time’s a-wasting and shipping times are sharply narrowing, so let’s get to the gifts!
Adventurers, travelers, explorers- whatever you want to call them, there are probably a few on your Christmas list this year.
Maybe you even are one yourself, in which case there are probably more than a few on your list!
But if you don’t personally engage in the activities your adventurous loved one likes- whether that’s winter sports, camping, backpacking, or traveling the world, it can be hard to know what sort of gear makes an appropriate gift.
We already have an Explorer’s gift guide for your reference, but if you find yourself still needing a bit more guidance, you’ve come to the right place.
Kids are absolutely the most fun to buy gifts for! That’s why we want to help you find ethical and eco-friendly toys and gifts for the little ones in your life. As a conscious consumer with a toddler in my house, my focus has shifted from trying to get a high number of cheaply-made toys under the tree, to finding a few quality toys items that will he will love for years.
That’s why many families are starting to abide by the principle of buying “something you want, something you need, something to wear, something to read.” With that mantra in mind, we’ve got ethical gift ideas for you for the babies, toddlers, and elementary-aged kids in your life.
If your holiday table will include a few vegans this year, you’ve probably given a lot of thought to the food you’ll be serving during your special dinner.
But have you considered the presents you’re planning to give?
If not, I’ve caught you just in time.
If you’re buying gifts for a vegan loved one this year, it makes sense to shop for them according to their values.
