With another potential lockdown approaching, making our living spaces feel warm and cozy is essential to keeping a good state of mind. So why not start with some fun, eco-friendly home decor? Below we have listed 10 gift ideas for your friends and family so you can ensure that they are staying sane and stylish.


Horizon Pillow

Price:

$105

Our Take:

Unfortunately, in this day and age, most of us know someone with back problems. This horizontal pillow acts as the perfect gift to help provide your loved ones with a quality, comfortable back support system. Furthermore, Block Shop does not support child labor, pays its workers fairly, and works to help empower women through their partners' training programs. Block Shop has also made a commitment to upcycle fabric when possible.


Esperanza Alpaca Throw

Price:

$175

Our Take:

This extremely soft blanket is made out of 100% Alpaca wool and was hand-woven in the Peruvian Andes. Valuing the practice of hand-weaving, The Citizenry pays its workers twice the expected amount of the Fair Trade requirement. Gift this to a friend or family member to help them add an authentic, luxurious touch to their living space.


Bamboo Charcoal Pillowcase Set

Price:

$48

Our Take:

This pillowcase set is made out of CleanBamboo™ Charcoal and has thermoregulation as well as hypoallergenic qualities. This set is OEKO-Tex certified, comes with two pillowcases, and is the perfect present for someone looking to make their bed look a bit tidier but still comfortable.


Heart Frame

Price:

$34

Our Take:

This bone, heart frame is the perfect sentiment to show your love and care for someone during the holidays. It was artisanally made in India, with each frame taking 3-4 weeks to carve. Moreover, The Little Market is a certified Fair Trade organization that values transparency and uses recycled materials or natural fibers whenever possible.


Secoya-Campfire Ash Blanket

Price:

$150

Our Take:

This beautiful throw blanket is ethically made by Indigenous peoples in Ecuador and is in fact named after a group that lives in the Northeast Educadorian rivers. It is made out of 100% recycled acrylic, is hypoallergenic, and eco-friendly. It brings people together acting as a wearable, but shareable Indigenous piece of art. It makes for a very special gift, which, (after hearing about its amazing story), you may want to gift to yourself.


Soapstone Decorative Box

Price:

$75

Our Take:

A soapbox is an item people never know they need until they get one. Having one makes a huge difference in your morning routine. So why not gift a friend this unique, individually-made soapbox from Kenya? Plus, there is the added bonus that this soapbox was made out of soapstone in a Fair Trade environment.


String of Succulent Collection

Price:

$65

Our Take:

This easy to take care of group of succulents is the perfect present for someone looking to add a little greenery and freshness into their life. These plants double as air cleaners, meaning they get rid of air pollutants, so they will be breathing well. Also, Bloomscape has mastered the art of shipping plants, saving you the hassle of having to go to a nursery and get lost amidst the huge selection of plants.


Doppler LED Table Lamp

Price:

$250

Our Take:

This cute lamp is a great way to add a pop of soft light and joy into a room. Its fun, modern style presents itself as a wonderful piece of home decor to gift to a friend. Additionally, Burrow makes its products in the U.S. and uses recycled and eco-friendly materials when opportunity strikes.


Colorblock Throw Pillow

Price:

$64

Our Take:

This cushion, made out of 100% GOTS Certified Organic Cotton, was made under Fair Trade regulations in India. The simple colors and design on the pillow allow it to pair well with a variety of different furniture items. This pillow is a nice gift option for someone who loves throw pillows and decor but wants to incorporate more sustainable decorations into their living space.


Holiday Candle

Price:

$36

Our Take:

Otherland's holiday candle uses all clean, cruelty-free, and toxin-free ingredients. Their products are made in the U.S. and they encourage consumers to repurpose their glass candle holders, (and even provide some fun ideas on their website on how to do so)! This candle comes in six different scents and aesthetics to please all. Enrich someone's home scent and decor by gifting them this candle. (Oh, and it works great as a romantic gift as well).
