[Ad – gifted] I’m re-sharing these sustainable gifts ideas I was busy putting together into an green gift guide for you last year. I collated some brilliant and lovely ecogifts, and I think you’ll really love them – I’ve also declined a few that didn’t make the cut so you can rest assured only the best are included!
You will find a selection of eco friendly gifts for kids and grown ups with various price points, so plenty of options to choose from!
Eco Friendly Gifts For Kids
Seekers Scavenger Hunt
I absolutely love the concept of this, probably because it suits our family perfectly! We love nothing more than getting out into nature at the weekends with a family stroll through the woods, perhaps with a spot of geocaching thrown in.
This scavenger hunt game gives a little more interest for little ones – and comes in 100% biodegradable and recyclable FSC-sourced packaging, plus of course it can be used again and again. You can even get add-on items to extend the fun! (I have a feeling we’ll be stocking up on the Ben and Holly version in time for Christmas!) Get yours here:
Hape Solar Power Circuit Train Set
This very clever push along train features solar-powered lights! Hape is well known for being a leader in sustainability, and you can read about their policies here. Get yours here:
Rex Bamboo Plate Sets
Rex kindly sent us two sets, I thoughts I’d share this unicorn one with you because it’s (still) very much in vogue! We also have a super cute bunny set (below), and you can browse their full range here – and also bear in mind they have lots of other gorgeous products too! Get yours here:

Eco Friendly Gifts For Him
Sundried Sports Clothing
You may remember I worked with Sundried earlier in the year on a review of some of their womenswear – and they’ve kindly sent me some of their mens to share with you now. Above you’ll see their Grande Casse Running Jacket, made from 100% recycled plastic bottles and, with its super lightweight and breathable material, perfect for keeping you cool and dry no matter the weather. Get yours here, £60.

If you love your coffee but you don’t love destroying the planet, then these 100% organic, 100% compostable Nespresso compatible capsules are a win. The packaging is eco friendly too. Get yours here, £3.60.
Eco Friendly Stocking Fillers

Each of these four games is 100% recycled, made from old shampoo bottles, paper, and wrapping paper – pretty cool, huh? The games are simple yet colourful and entertaining for children. Get yours here:
Blue Rock Living Bamboo Toothbrushes
If your children are like mine, a new toothbrush is the highlight of the month for them! And it’s great to know that these ones are not destined for landfill once they’ve worked their magic on your little ones’ teeth. Available for kids and adults, the handle is compostable and the bristles are recyclable. You can even arrange a subscription service so you need never again worry about replacing your toothbrush! Get yours here.
