~* Trinkets & Stuffers *~

Eco Jarz - These nifty lids turn any jar into a handy cup. Available in both stainless steel ($7.99) and soft silicone ($5.99) these make a great inexpensive gift idea!

Gift Cards! - Their favorite coffee place, lunch spot, Amazon or if they have a smartphone a gift card to the App Store could be a great, useful stuffer.

Homemade Play Dough – This is play dough recipe from The Eco Chic is great for kids and you can control everything that goes in! Your kids will love it and you can whip up a big batch, with plenty to share, in no time.

EMAB Lip Balm - These are one of my favorites, completely safe and vegan they are perfect for the whole family – even the men in your life!

 

~* Kids *~

Ergobaby Doll Carrier - I love wearing my babies, so it only makes sense that my children would love it too. My kids love these doll carrier from Ergobaby. They fit great and are easy for them to adjust, and I love watching them help each other get their babies in.

Plan Toys Drum Set - Little ones of all ages will love rocking out on this adorable drum set! My girls love to hold concerts for us on this one sent to them by Plan. If you’re looking for other wooden toys, I can’t recommend Plan enough. We also own the Chalet Doll House and Barn  – my kids just love them!

Arttero Craft Kits - These award winning eco-crafts are best suited for older kids, these fun craft kits let imaginations run wild and help bigger kids express their creativity. There are even wearable versions! Check out their wire kitwearable felt kitjewelry kit & doll kit to get started.

Green Science Weather Station Kit- My son was gifted the windmill generator version of this toy last Christmas and just loved it! I love that these are toys and are an educational option for older kids.

 

~* Her *~

Jewelry from Bottled Up Designs - As soon as I saw these earrings I just had to have them. I picked up two pairs from Abe’s Market right away. The colors aren’t quite as vivid in person, but I can’t wait to pair these with my holiday outfits!

Organic Chocolate- My husband bought me a package of dark chocolates from Lake Champlain Chocolates last year and I fell in love! They are such a special treat, just watch out for the mailers they send – they will cause cravings!

 

~* Him *~

Ekobrew - I picked up one of these cups on Amazon and loved it so much that I wrote a whole blog post about it (and I bought one for my husband’s stocking, but don’t tell him that!) If the man in your life is a coffee drinker, or a Keurig owner this cup is for him! (this is a great gift for the ladies too) Basically it eliminates the waste associated with single brew systems and is available in both a BPA plastic version ($10) and a stainless steel version ($25 at various sites).

Allegory Pens - Finding a great gift for a guy is hard enough, let alone finding one that has sustainable values behind it. Allegory Pens are not only beautiful but made with passion from reclaimed woods with true history. These beautiful pens are easily refilled with standard pen refills available from any office supply store (hello future stocking stuffers!)

I was provided the Ergobaby doll carrier and Plan Toys drum set by the respective companies at no cost to me. They are featured on this gift guide because I love the quality of these toys, the messages that they promote and my children love playing with them.

I would love to get the Ergo Babydoll carrier for my nieces! They are such good little mommies to their babies so I imagine they would love this!

I must say that those are pretty impressive pens! I for sure will ask for one for Xmas this year!
