We are so excited about this one, and you should be too, babe! Every year, we love bringing you a roundup of the best stocking stuffers out there. And given our penchant for shopping, it’s honestly a pretty great task to complete. Amidst all of the holiday gift-giving and decorating, we know it can be easy to lose sight of what is good for the planet and what isn’t. If that has happened to you, don’t sweat it, gorgeous. We’re here to get you right back on track, and it is our absolute pleasure to. Grab a peppermint latte, throw on a cozy blanket, and get ready for the Ultimate Eco-Friendly Stocking Stuffer Guide: 2021 Edition.
Want the perfect stocking stuffer for the health-conscious babe in your life?
Alright, we’re starting off the 2021 Edition of the Ultimate Eco-Friendly Stocking Stuffer Guide in a bit of *nutty* way. But babe, we promise this is such a cool gift for any eco-conscious friend or family member in your life. Or, it can help one of your favorite people be a little greener (and healthier)!
We like to call this one “the nut milk bag”. It is made from recycled cotton and is totally washable and reusable. But what’s it for, you ask? You might have guessed it, but it is the simplest way to make your non-dairy drink of choice. What’s more, these babies can even be used to make cold brew coffee or natural juices sans chunks or remnants from your produce.
Stuff a pack of these bad boys into a few stockings this year. And if you end up having to share a little tutorial on how to use them, even better! #Eco-friendlybondingmoment.
The stocking stuffer that just keeps on giving: BBE’s coffee bean eye cream.
If you want to turn your stocking stuffer gift into a little self-care moment, this next item is just the ticket for exactly that. BBE’s coffee bean eye cream will make any babe’s skincare routine that much better.
Loaded with nourishing shea butter, calming aloe vera, and brightening coffee seed extract, this eye cream is truly like no other. It’s safe enough for sensitive babes, yet *super* effective. If there’s a makeup lover in your life, consider adding this gem to her stocking, too. It wears exceptionally well under concealer and helps reduce creasing effects. Not to mention, anyone will appreciate having this mighty product on their side the morning after a little too many Christmas festivities.
Spice up any stocking with an eco-friendly candle that will totally set the mood…
Who doesn’t love receiving a luscious candle that smells ah-mazing, right? But babe, we love gifting candles because they can also be totally eco-friendly. Not only can candle jars be repurposed for further use. So many candle companies are now moving towards an eco-conscious ethos, and we are definitely here for it.
Gifting a candle from The Hummingbird Candle Co. is one choice you can truly feel good about this holiday season. This Black Woman-Owned company creates jobs for LGBTQ women in their community and all of their products are made in the USA. The scents you can pick from are seriously lush. From pumpkin spice to champagne toast, these babies can set the mood of any holiday party (or for a chill self-care session, post-festivities!).
The eco-friendly stocking stuffer every babe will love… the Jade Gua Sha.
Amongst our go-to beauty tools, this small but powerful gem is easily a fan fave. Gift the skincare lover (or novice) in your life a face sculpting Jade Gua Sha this year. Call it your handheld guide to facial massages, or your secret weapon for gorgeous and glowing skin. Either way babe, you’ll probably also want to call it yours (#treatyoelf’).
We love using this beauty tool for lymphatic drainage or to simply unwind after a long day. Using it is easy, and it can be stored in the fridge for a more cooling effect when used. Simply apply a few drops of facial oil or moisturizer to start, and then get to using that Jade Gua Sha, babe! Trust us, this is the stocking stuffer that will be used all year long.
Eco-friendly, cozy, and total must-haves for the holiday season: Recycled socks!
Alright, we know what you’re thinking. The quintessential “boring Christmas gift” is typically a pair of socks! But babe, would we really include such a let down in the 2021 Edition of The Ultimate Eco-Friendly Stocking Stuffer Guide? We think not. In comes Girlfriend Collective, making socks that are *anything* but a snooze fest.
With wording like “Please Recycle” and “Waste Not” on them, these are the socks we want to live in. All of their packaging is recyclable, and their socks are also made from recycled plastic bottles. And let’s not forget, they are *way* cozy and even designed for extra arch support. All and all girlfriend, you can’t go wrong with these guys as a stocking stuffer.
An exfoliating loofah that will change anyone’s shower game…
Everyone needs to get clean, and everyone deserves a shower routine that will leave them feeling squeaky clean and silky smooth. BBE’s exfoliating loofah is the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone on your list, and will help make dry winter skin a thing of the past.
You might not know this, but those plastic loofahs are way unkind to the planet. This is because they send microscopic bits of plastic down your drain, and into then into your sewage system which inevitably impacts the earth. BBE’s alternative on the other hand, is made from natural loofah sponges. Combine this shower tool with your favorite body wash and watch dry flakes vanish, and glowing skin appear. Believe us babe, this is the stocking stuffer they didn’t know they needed until they received it!
For the iced coffee queen in your life, this is the ultimate stocking stuffer…
Let’s be real. Everyone has a babe in their life that absolutely *lives* for their iced coffee. And usually, it’s hard for these java aficionados to imagine making an at-home drink as well as their favorite coffee shop does. Luckily though, they’ve got you. And you’re about to gift them the stocking stuffer that will make them skip the iced coffee drive thru run. Not to mention, that will help them buy less of those drinks that come in plastic cups.
This beverage chiller is the *major key* to making iced coffee at home. You know, that doesn’t taste watered down from adding endless amounts of ice cubes to it. All you need to do is store this guy in your freezer. Then, pour your brew of choice into the middle of it, swish around for a few seconds, and bam. Easy and deliciously strong iced coffee, sans professional barista price tag or plastic waste.
And for the tea lover, we’ve got a little something something, too.
If you’re looking for a stocking stuffer that will make the tea lover in your life smile, these next gems in our 2021 Edition of The Ultimate Eco-Friendly Stocking Stuffer Guide are it. “Teaware” that is washable, and reusable is not only better for the planet, but umm, ridiculously cute as well.
From infusers to filters, David’s Tea has a gorgeous variety of tea tools that will fit swimmingly into any stocking. We especially love their holiday collections that come out around this time of year and their festive tea flavors. They’re so delicious, they could *almost* turn an iced coffee queen into a tea lover.
A personalized eco-friendly gift that will make them feel *extra* special…
Not much can beat finding a sparkly gift in your stocking. I mean, what girl doesn’t love receiving a dainty piece of jewellery no matter what the occasion is? And one that is personalized on top of that? Well, it doesn’t get better than that, babe.
You can find tons of options on Etsy, but we especially love these beautiful, personalized pendants that can be customized with more than one name. Whether it’s for your bestie or your mama, these pieces are *way* special and are sure to be appreciated.
More swoon-worthy jewellery made from upcycled materials…
And while we’re on the topic of jewellery, we had to include these quirky earrings in our 2021 Edition of The Ultimate Eco-Friendly Stocking Stuffer Guide. They are made from upcycled bottles of gin (yes, you read that right) and are super unique.
When in doubt, opt for these little gems that will spruce up any stocking and be cherished for years to come!
Slip an organic lip scrub into everyone’s stocking this year…
You already know that we are beauty obsessed around here. But this next stocking stuffer is an essential in our books. Gift a lip scrub to any of your faves this year, and let them thank you later.
So many of us neglect our pouts during the winter season. On top of that, most babes only reach for a lip balm when they are experiencing chapped or dry lips. The key to silky smooth lips no matter what the season, is exfoliating. And when it comes to the best lip scrubs, BBE has you way covered. No matter what flavor you choose, we promise that you’ll be loved for gifting one of these bad boys.
Gift an essential everyday basic, eco-friendly style. Oh and, start something even bigger.
At first glance, you might think this last idea in our 2021 Edition of The Ultimate Eco-Friendly Stocking Stuffer Guide is basic. And honestly, we’ll admit that there isn’t anything overly exciting or ground-breaking about gifting someone a toothbrush. But babe, hear us out on this one. Reducing the amount of plastic waste we create is crucial. Every little bit of effort counts, and you'll be stunned to learn about the amount of plastic toothbrushes that end up in landfills every year. Not to mention, the fact that they take over 400 years to decompose!
Gifting someone an eco-friendly toothbrush set like this one is not only *way* adorable, but can get anyone into the habit of repurchasing these greener options in the future. Sometimes, people just need an eco-conscious goddess like you in their lives to show them the way and to make them value this beautiful planet of ours. And that, well… is pretty ground-breaking.
