Practicing sustainable gift-giving for Christmas will make a nice gift to the future generations. Imagine every year on Christmas Eve, we are all left with a pile of torn & crumpled Christmas gift-wrappers and plastic bubble-wraps to stack in a huge trash bag and add up to wasteland—along with everyone else’s.
Not to mention, giving and receiving unnecessary gift items that have once sat pretty beneath the tree and will eventually end up piling up on a landfill. So, this year, let’s try something sustainable and BETTER. We’ve got some good quality Christmas gift ideas that your loved ones will surely love for a long, long time! Here are our top 5 tips to go sustainable:
Practice the Power of Pre-Loved.
This is a versatile piece that your sister or mother will love! In a dainty ballerina pink hue, this Mark Bumgarner Flat Mules is a pair you can wear just anywhere and anytime—from the office to Sunday brunches even up to just a quick stroll in the market. And since it’s pre-loved by Heart Evangelista, they’ll definitely feel like a fashionista!
Remember: Good Quality + Function is always the Priority!
Just the perfect everyday companion, your guy will love this good quality backpack to carry his everyday gear in style! This roomy bag can easily stuff items such as laptop, books, chargers and a lot more.
Choose Versatile, rather than Trendy.
The best clothes to give are those that anyone can style up or down in any season like this simple yet edgy Guess denim jacket for toddlers—which can transcend various styles from street style to feminine or even just plain casual shirt-and-jeans combo.
In Pre-loved, Go High-End at a Low Price!
One can never go wrong with Prada. This classic black Prada pair was so well taken-care of and barely used that makes its current price a real score!
Most of all, Make it Meaningful.
Because of our long Christmas list of people to give to, we tend to forget to put meaning into our gifts and end up buying unnecessary items just for the sake of. Commemorate a friendship with an item that represents what you both love, like for instance gift this Gucci sunglasses to a best friend you love travelling with!
The best feeling ever, truly, is seeing people actually loving and using the gifts you gave them and knowing how something so small and simple helps add fun and function to their everyday life. It’s safe to say that sustainable gift-giving is not only good for the environment—it’s good for your relationships too!
