It’s true that in a lot of cases, Organic can be more expensive; but if you shop smart – it doesn’t need to be. And let’s not forget, it’s the thought and love that really counts when giving a gift and you can’t put a price on that!
Here are some eco-gift ideas that won't require you getting a second mortgage.
Potted Herbs – Organic, useful, fresh, low cost and you might even get invited over for dinner!
Hand-made with love:
- Infused Organic oil: Chilli, Lemon, Rosemary, Garlic. Simple and thoughtful, cost effective and again, might get you an invite for dinner!
- Organic Sea Salt and herb rubs: Great for rubbing on roasts, sprinkling on stews or chuck it on your chicken! A useful gift and may warrant another dinner invite (can you tell I like food!).
- Organic Lip Balm/Candles: Get out the organic coconut oil, beeswax, soy wax and essential oils and get creative. Get someone’s lips and mood ready for some summer lovin!
Fabric shopping bags – Let your loved one remember you, every-time they pull one of these little babies out of their handbag. Environmentally friendly, functional and handy!
