Whether it’s a birthday, a holiday, an anniversary, or even a baby or bridal shower, gift-giving can be hard enough as it is. But, throw a devoted environmentally conscious friend into the mix, and that gift-shopping just became quite a bit more challenging.
Get creative while also getting them something they will not only love, but that they’ll also be able to use. There are some great gifts for an environmentally friendly, and we’ve gone ahead and compiled a list of 15 gifts that are great for an ecologically conscious individual.
- Bamboo keyboard
Bamboo is actually one of the most sustainable woods on the planet. Durable, versatile, stylish, and easy to grow, there’s quite a few items on this list that are made of bamboo. This bamboo computer set comes with a keyboard and a mouse made of bamboo wood, and are incredibly well made. Unique and stylish, it’s a gift that is likely something they wouldn’t have expected, but also something they’re certain to love.
- Recycled journal
Journals are always a great gift, as they promote writing, thinking, medication, and other healthy habits. These journals are handmade and are uniquely designed and made from prints, paper bags, fabrics or materials, and leftover newsprints for a hand-crafted journal like no one else has.
- Sustainable clothing
With activewear, tees, tanks, tops, bottoms, sweaters, and jackets, this line of men and women’s clothing is environmentally friendly and made from sustainable and recyclable materials. Cute, stylish, and durable, this line is beautifully simplistic and made of quality material. A bit on the higher side with regards to price, they’re well worth the cost.
- Reusable water bottle
Reusable water bottles are all the rage right now, because they’re convenient to carry, help us drink the necessary amount of water to remain healthy, and come in a variety of colors and styles. The Kool8 bottle is a great choice because not only is it fully insulated and made of strong, durable materials, but it even has a tea diffuser built into the bottle for a little extra burst of flavor.

- Bamboo watch
Watches have long been ideal gift options because of their neutrality as a gift; you can give one to your mother or your partner, your friend or your sibling.

These watches come in a variety of styles and colors to choose from.
