Conscious Christmas Gift Inspiration

In my humble opinion, if a gift is thoughtfully chosen and encourages better practises from the design to the manufacturing process, the packaging, materials used and craftsmanship, then I’m in favour!

The first year I went zero waste, I sent an email to all friends and family saying I was keen not to receive any gifts, but I have to admit it did take the magic out of Christmas a little bit. I now think one or two consciously considered gifts can spark joy!

So grab a mince pie and a glass of something organic. Embrace the hygge-vibes and happy browsing – here’s the Eco Boost Christmas Gift Collection to inspire you in time for the big day. I’ve tried to mostly include items of experiences I’ve used, tried or own and would highly recommend.

Remember, buy less, choose well and make it last!
