Meaningful, Sustainable Co-Worker Gifts for Holiday 2022

Whether you're taking part in secret santa, the office holiday gift swap, or just thanking a special co-worker for making work fun everyday, we've got you covered on gift ideas this year. We've rounded up a few of our favorite gifts for co-workers that are meaningful, ethically and sustainably made, and sure to work for even the most difficult to shop for.

We also know that you might have to buy several of these or have to stick to a budget, so we've tried to include gifts for all budgets, events, and occasions. Let's check 'em out!

Weekend Pampering Skin Refresh Kit 

For that co-worker who kicks ass during the week, but needs a little break on the weekends, try a pampering Skin Refresh Kit with Sugar Scrub, hand soap, and body lotion. All made with fair trade, sustainably-sourced ingredients that are safe to use all the time. Every purchase donates to provide clean water and a bar of soap for children in Haiti.

Socks that Support Mental Health

These socks that support mental health are a no-brainer—especially for a co-worker who's a little hard to shop for! They’re made from organic cotton, certified fair trade for ethical labor, and each pair gives back $1 to NAMI and their work to provide advocacy, education, and support around mental illness. They also feature a padded insole and arch support, to up the cozy factor for your giftee.

The Perfect Chocolatey Work Snack

These Dark Chocolate Melts from Madagascar make a perfect "Under $10" gift for the office gift swap. They're melt-in-your-mouth delicious, perfect for a midday treat during the workday. They also help empower farmers and conserve wildlife in Madagascar by paying above living wages and using state-of-art sustainable agroforestry techniques.

A Do-Everything Pouch

A multi-talented pouch for your multi-talented co-worker. This utility pouch is a convenient carry size and features handy loops inside to help organize cords, jewelry, makeup, or anything else. The organic cotton used in this pouch is grown on-site at the workshop in Cambodia that makes the pouches and hires differently-abled women to help promote economic empowerment.  

Hydration Hero Water Bottle

Maybe Michael Scott liked to use those paper cups at the water cooler, but for the co-workers who wants to cut down on waste, how about a reusable water bottle to help keep them hydrated on the go, while also reducing disposable bottles and cups? The 16 oz Dopper bottle is just that! It’s a convenient size, with fun, bright color options. Plus 5% of every purchase is donated to fund water sanitation projects around the world!

Pouch for a Coffee Lover

The cutest little pouch for your caffeine-loving co-worker. And this fun gift packs a punch too; the Coffee Lover Pouch is made with fair trade cotton, upcycled sari fabric, by survivors of human trafficking in India. 10% of all profits are then donated to empower survivors of human trafficking in LA. 

Comfort in a Cup Brownie Gift Set 

This mug brownie gift set is the perfect unique and thoughtful gift set. It comes with a mug, the cutest tiny whisk, and 3 brownie mug cake mixes. These mixes are also vegan and gluten-free, so it covers food allergies (but it doesn’t like *taste* gluten or dairy free, you know?), and made with organic ingredients, fair trade sugar, and upcycled food byproducts that help fight climate change!
