It’s that time of year again, where we want to give out gifts to coworkers, but we also want to be conscious of what we buy them. Because you don’t want to end up adding more trash to our home planet. So what gifts do we get to delight people we may barely know and be eco-friendly? Here are 6 gift ideas for you!
Whether your coworker is male or female, you can get them an classy shaving set for the holidays this year!
So what does that set consist of?
Classic Straight Safety Razor
This razor is a reusable razor that won’t be ending up in the trash anytime soon. Durable and elegant, this chrome plated safety razor with its replaceable blades is meant to last a lifetime. Made in Germany, it’s short handle is meant to allow for easy of handling and it is great for beginners to use!
Rustic Wooden Brush and Chrome Stand
The wooden brush allows for this item to be compostable and the chrome stand is plastic-free and can last you just as long as the razor itself!
And lastly the set would be incomplete without the shaving soap! There are an infinite number of scents and brands you can choose from. The one mentioned above is just one of many. I chose the one in particular because it is unscented so it can go to either gender!
Give the gift of relaxation with this package free bath bomb from Lush. You can walk right into the store and pick this up without any packaging involved. When you give it as a gift, you can wrap it in brown paper and tie it with string to give it a beautiful earthy look.
Honestly, if you don’t know your coworker well, giving them soap can do no wrong. It smells nice. It cleans. And they will always find a use for it. I mean, what’s there not to like?!?!
Wine or Beer
If you are 21 or older, then a bottle of wine or a variety pack of special beers is also a perfect gift for others (unless they don’t drink, then don’t get them this). I especially love rieslings and 14 Hands makes a mean riesling!
If you decide to give beer, what would be even better is if you get your friend a Growler, which they can then go to a local brewery with and refill it with more beer later!
(A few of the experiences I’ve had courtesy of Groupon!)
I like to give experiences as gifts, because honestly what is greater than giving the opportunity for someone to experience something? Or learn something? Companies like Groupon and LivingSocial (as far as I know) give this type of gift.
Any eGift Card will be completely zero-waste. I like to focus on gift cards that can give as many options as possible, which is why I default to a good old Amazon eGift Card, so they can end up choosing what they really want, instead of returning your gift.
But Amazon isn’t the only company that gives out eGift Cards. Honestly, take your pick with Target, Best Buy, eBay, or Airbnb, etc. You can use gift card sites like this to check some options and then go to the actual company website to buy the eGift Card. The options are endless!
