Hands giving Christmas gifts
Gift-giving season is here again, mamas. We know how hard it is to make a list for our family, friends, and colleagues. We usually consider firstly the budget, or if it’s easy to source, and maybe sometimes it’s just the packaging.
This time, why not pick out gifts that are built to last, truly useful, and not to be recycled as unwanted gifts? Presents that are sustainable are not only practical – they’re your gift to mother earth too! Here are some ideas on what sustainable gifts you can distribute this Christmas.
Rosary for decades
Prayers offered as a gift is always a great idea. But if you need something tangible and meaningful for your mother-in-law or grandmother, get a rosary with beads that are made of stainless steel.
The gift of comfort
You can’t buy good sleep, they say. But your gift recipient will have a better chance of snoozing with some tools, like a memory foam pillow that molds to the shape of the head and neck, and provides pressure point relief.
Cold drinking water every day
Save up with bringing your own water (#RefillForGood) instead of buying bottled drinks on trips or at school. No need to consume untasty, hot water on a summer day, too. Grab an insulated water bottle that keeps drinks cold for up to 24 hours! Your child, godchild, niece or nephew will definitely use it for years.
Reusable plastics
Did you know that the Philippines is among the world’s top plastic pollutants? Stop hurting mother nature by using reusable yet safe plastics for many purposes. These reusable bags can be used to freeze meat, organize food packs, or even some school supplies at home. These are useful presents for your titas, mama friends who like to keep their refrigerators organized, among others.
Durable bag
Gift a mommy bag like Jujube Be Quick that never goes out of style and is functional for every busy mama. Put keys, alcohol, baby wipes, and many other baby needs in a small pack. It’s 5-star rated for nothing! It’s specially made for mamas– with its clip-on strap for use as a wristlet or to attach to the stroller or bag, has a Teflon™ fabric protector, metal hardware for classy look, and is washable without worry.
Reusable sandwich bags
Skip harmful and non food-grade plastics when preparing your child’s baon. Get something more environment friendly, and even cut your weekly grocery expenses with a reusable sandwich bag. It comes in a variety of colors that might just entice your kid to finish their snacks.
Art attack
Save papers by using reusable drawing pads. Not only do you let your child unleash his or her inner artist, you also support mother nature with conscious paper use. This Crayola reusable set comes with an activity mat, 4 washable tripod grip crayons, and reusable activity sheets.
Reusable straw
Practice better food safety by bringing a personal straw everywhere you go – and you even help reduce plastic use! This silicone reusable straw, which comes with a tin can for easy mobility, is the perfect gift for your colleagues and friends.
Reusable menstrual cup
Ready to level up your environment consciousness game? Reduce the world’s napkin trash with a reusable menstrual cup that vows to be chemical-free and gynecology approved. One cup protects you for up to 12 hours and is even safe for use overnight.
