So, in the spirit of giving better, more thoughtful , circular gifts, here’s the ultimate list of everything from zero-waste, circular, regenerative to restorative gift ideas. Feel free to mix and match for a truly meaningful, holiday season!
RELEVANT SUSTAINABLE GOALS
1. Donate On Behalf Of Loved Ones
Go the extra mile and donate to charity in their name, an act of kindness goes a long way. If you are donating to charity in someone else’s name as a present, make sure the charity is a good fit for the recipient. If you are unclear whether the recipient would like this gift, you can always ask them beforehand.
Not sure what to write on your xmas card, here are few gift wording examples that you can put in the card :
- In the spirit of the holiday season, I’ve made a donation to your favorite charity in your name.
- I know how important giving back is to you, so I’ve made a donation in your name to honor your generous nature.
- I’ve made a donation in your name to (insert charity’s name) to celebrate the spirit of Christmas. I know how much you care about (insert charity’s main mission) and wanted to support your passion for (insert recipient’s passion).
In addition to donating to charities on behalf of your loved ones, consider giving gifts that’ll conjunctively support noble causes at no additional cost to you. Support businesses that give back, or just learn more about places you can donate directly to, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s a variety of local-businesses, minority-owned, LGBTQ-owned, and mission-driven businesses.
Who doesn’t like the feel-good realization that they’ve indirectly supported a good cause?
