If you’ve decided to celebrate eco friendly Christmas this year, you are truly following the spirit of giving. This is because when you care for the environment, you give peace and purity to the earth. However, if you have a habit of buying tons of gifts and adorning your place with the most sophisticated illuminations, you might need do something different this time.
It’s the First Step That Counts
The first step towards an eco friendly Christmas is reducing the clutter of gifts. How many times have we got the gift that we really wanted? It’s a common sight to see kids sitting on a heap of gifts, only to be searching for something useful. Alas! Then it’s time to wait for the next Christmas; maybe they would get what they longed for.
Why not develop a trend of giving useful, relevant gifts to people? It makes sense to stop giving needless gifts for the sake of giving. Understanding the other person’s needs and gifting him or she accordingly is one of the noblest deeds. The point is to give somebody something that they remember and cherish.
Can you remember every gift you received in the last three years on Christmas? How many of them were useful to you?
Eco Friendly Christmas Gifts
These are not something that makes you spend a fortune. You can make these gifts at home and render a personal touch to them. If you love cooking, you have no reason to step into a gift store and buy those factory-made items. Bake a cake, or prepare a box of cookies or other delicacies and gift them to someone.
If cooking is not your cup of tea, you can gift a lovely coffee mug or a nice bag. This is not only environmentally friendly, but also a meaningful gift. You can scribble a message on the bag or mug. Kitchen appliances like grinders also make a great gift. Energy efficient appliances are eco-friendly Christmas gifts and, at the same time, useful items for the recipient.
If you want to gift something different than the usual items, get a coupon for organic items from your local organic store. Your guest can have a supply of organic food through this coupon. Quite a gift, right?
Gals, if you wish to gift your best friend something eco friendly and useful, make homemade facial masks or moisturizers for this winter, wrap them in a lovely box, and watch your friend’s face light with happiness!
Besides, an eco-friendly Christmas need not be marked with gifts alone. You can do something useful for somebody. A noble deed is always appreciated and remembered. Moreover, you will feel happy and peaceful doing something good for others.
Eco Friendly Christmas Tree
Have you heard of the eco friendly tree that spreads the spirit of caring for our home – earth? Well, this Christmas, make sure you have a tree that symbolizes “being green.” Instead of using all kinds of synthetic and expensive adornments, use homemade and environmentally friendly items for decorating your tree. This can become one of the most beautiful things in your house this Christmas.
Eco friendly Christmas requires no special effort; just a little switch from the usual way of celebrating. Are you ready to make this effort to do something for Mother Earth?
