If you’re an environmentally conscious buyer, you’ll understand the struggle of choosing a gift for a friend or family member. What if they don’t like it? What if it’s something they’ll never use? What if it will end up in landfill, only adding to our global waste problem?
These are serious questions that can cause anxiety in eco-conscious shoppers and gift-givers.
When you buy for yourself, it’s not so hard. You know what you like! You know what you need for your own lifestyle and your own household.
But when it’s time to buy for somebody else, things get complicated—and waste is a serious worry.
No matter how well-intentioned we are with our gifts, sometimes we miss the mark, and the last thing we want is for something to end up on the junk pile! It doesn’t feel great for anyone involved.
That’s why it’s important to choose consciously. Give gifts that have multiple uses, or that can be passed on to others and reused time and time again.
Alternatively, choose products made from recycled or sustainable materials with limited environmental impact.
Curate custom, eco-friendly gift hampers for her
Custom eco-friendly gift hampers are the perfect solution to this problem.
With custom hampers, you can carefully curate a selection of products you know the receiver will genuinely love. By choosing organic products sourced from local Australian businesses, you’ll limit your carbon footprint and support hard-working Australian business owners all at once.
What should I include in a custom gift box?
The basis of sustainability is to choose high-quality products that will last for years to come. When customising gift hampers for her, a knitted washcloth is an excellent choice. Washcloths are an essential household item and, if looked after, can be used for decades (and even passed on to the next generation!) Choose a product made from 100% cotton to ensure longevity.
Another essential eco-friendly option for women’s gift hampers is tea bags. Organic tea in biodegradable bags are so fantastic because they
- Won’t harm the environment
- Can be reused up to three times (!)
- Are even suitable for composting
Choose a teabag infused with calming botanicals like peppermint or chamomile for a therapeutic edge. As with all gift hampers for her, make sure to pick her favourite flavour. If you’re not sure, you can always do some cheeky fact-checking with her 😉
It’s a genuinely no-waste option and a perfect choice for any conscious consumer.
