2:53 AM RAWAT 0 Comments

It's easy to get carried away while choosing gifts for your near and dear ones. We usually tend to splurge and buy gifts that can increase our carbon footprint, leaving the planet more susceptible to environmental pollution. Not everybody has the time to go through the ingredients or methods used in the making of a product. Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered! Here is a carefully-curated list of ethical and luxe eco-friendly gifts that you can consider buying in 2019.

        Natural Scented Candles

Candles are considered the most classic gift of all time. Whether used as artful decoration pieces or for aromatherapy, these are prime examples of flexibly-affordable luxury. We absolutely love the brand concept of NEOM Organics that is inspiring people to live naturally healthier lives. They offer 100% natural candles scented only with pure essential oils. Moreover, all ingredients are sourced from sustainable and renewable annual crops with little to no chemical pesticides, fertilisers, performance enhancing glues or additives. We recommend the Feel Refreshed Candle which will make for a great gift for men and women alike.

        Organic Dates Wooden Gift Box

Skip the chocolates this gifting season and go for a healthier yet sweet option. Rich in nutrients, dates are natural superfoods that provide instant energy. We came across Bateel’s premium and organic date collection online. Grown exclusively in a natural, optimal environment, Bateel doesn’t use chemicals in the cultivation process. They offer presents in luxurious wooden gift boxes that feature hand-painted glass. We absolutely love the Arabian Dream Gift Box filled to the brim with Bateel’s finest date varieties coupled with premium fillings. The best part is that after savouring the dates, you can even reuse the box as it is made of sustainable wood!

Eco-friendly Watch

     A quality timepiece makes for a great gift. But what about giving a handcrafted wooden watch inspired by ‘conscious living’ and made of finest recyclable material? Now this is a gift that you will be remembered for. From the selection of materials that are of pure natural origin, to the use of shipping that combats CO2 emissions, MAM Originals is setting up ecological standards for the world to follow. Made from sustainably sourced wood, this Geese Wooden Watch is our favourite. It is hypoallergenic and comfortable as light – the perfect gift for any occasion.          

        Natural Skincare

Recently, we have seen a growth in organic cosmetic brands which have an environmentally friendly ethos and refuse to test on animals. We came across a brand that found its inspiration and hero ingredient within the dramatic Himalayas. Herbal Essentials is a natural cosmetics company focused on ayurvedic medicine. Their products are paraben, paraffin and animal cruelty free, and they use recycled and biodegradable materials for packaging as well. This Purifying Toner is sure to work wonders for any skin type.

          Greener Groceries

Choosing organic fruits and vegetables reduces our exposure of pesticides. Research shows that organic fruits contain more antioxidant activity than conventionally grown fruits. Imagine the sheer excitement and thrill when you receive a box full of fresh greens delivered just hours after their harvest. Greenheart Organic Farms has you covered! Their Mixed Box Deluxe includes green leaves, vegetables and fruits right after harvesting.

With industry experts, environmental activists, chefs, designers, and entrepreneurs working hard to boost sustainable practices in the year 2019, you can now feel free to spend a little extra on eco-friendly gifts. And what better way to inspire your friends and family than by giving them a wonderfully sustainable gift that reminds them of how valuable they are? Cheers to sustainable gifting!
