Gift Guide: 10 Under $50 eco-friendly gift ideas

Happily Ever Style

This year has gotten a lot of us thinking more about the well-being of our planet. Earlier this year, when I read about all the visible improvements in the environment, it got me motivated to do more for our beloved earth. After all, it’s our home and it is our responsibility to take good care of it.

When you’re looking for gifts this holiday season, consider joining me in shopping from sustainable fashion and beauty brands that are making an effort to care for our home.

Read on to see 10 gift options that are priced under $50:

1. Clair de Lune Candle by Pink Moon ($48)

Handcrafted in small batches, the zero waste candle by Pink Moon doubles as a body oil! The blend is made of ethically-sourced coconut and apricot wax which is more sustainable and burns cleaner than soy candles. After the total burn time of 40 to 45 hours, the beautiful pink opal glass vessel can be reused as a brush holder, flower vase, etc

2. Crew socks by Girlfriend Collective ($14)

Ethical clothing brand Girlfriend Collective recycles plastic bottles to create chic activewear, including their best-selling leggings, as well as socks and intimates. The "Please Recycle" crew socks come in different lengths and make great Christmas stocking stuffers.

Room Shop uses recycled, dead stock and scrap ends or locally sourced fabric to create beautiful hair accessories. Their scrunchies come in various sizes and this giant one is a fun, unique choice to gift. It comes in a variety of different colors and textures, too.

4. Lip-to-Lid Balmies by AXIOLOGY ($36)

They're wrapped in paper and rest in a recyclable carrying case, too.


5. The 3-in-1 miracle balm by LOLI ($48)

LOLI is a sustainable beauty brand and one of their best-selling products is this multi-purpose melting balm that can cleanse, moisturize and treat!

This is a perfect gift for the beauty enthusiasts.


6. The Daily Routine Set from by Humankind ($38)

By Humankind offers bundles that include a natural deodorant in a refillable container, 60 refill alcohol-free mouthwash tablets, 100% biodegradable floss, and a moisturizing hand sanitizer packaged in a recyclable aluminum bottle.
