The joy of the Christmas stocking – they’re usually stuffed with fun little gifts, sometimes practical, sometimes pretty, sometimes just silly. Stocking stuffers are like little treasures, they’re also great for that office gift exchange, or to have on hand for when that last-minute need for a gift pops up. They’re a terrific trick in large families – you give gifts to the children and let the adults exchange stocking stuffers.
The key to stocking stuffers is they should either be a gift that has very broad appeal or something that is geared to the recipient’s interests, and they should be reasonably priced. So, the recycled bike chain bottle opener would be great for just about any adult on your list, but the recycled bike chain candle holder might be best reserved for the cycle enthusiast (or someone who is really into industrial décor).
We’ve put together some super simple stocking stuffer ideas, and they’re all eco-friendly, of course!
Green thumb – how about a collection of seeds for a themed garden? Try the Chocolate Lovers Garden Kit (or the Herbs for Wine Lovers, or the Herbal Tea Garden, or the Gourmet Salad…) for a quick, cute stocking stuffer.
The writer – we all have them in our lives, the person who keeps journals, mails regular letters and sends handwritten notes “just because”. Make their day with stationary made from recycled paper.
Stocking stuffers go beyond Christmas. Keep a few simple, sustainable gifts on hand and you’ll be set for any gift giving occasion.
