Eco-Friendly Secret Santa Inspiration

Eco-Friendly Secret Santa Inspiration

9th November 2019
By: Annie - F&F

So you’ve drawn a name out of a hat and have the wrapping ready to go, but coming up with a great eco gift idea for your Secret Santa can be a challenging and time-consuming task.

To help you out, we’ve put together a list of F&F goodies that we think make perfect gifts - just scroll through the list below to see which individual trait best matches your Secret Santa!

For those with a Green Thumb

Plants of all varieties make for wonderful gifts come Christmas. What’s even better is if that plant is edible! Urban Green’s range of grow kits contain everything you need to start and cultivate your own little collection of herbs, leafy greens, fruits, veggies, and new sprouts kits! The Australian company sources the seeds locally and completes each kit with cute peat pots, growing substrate discs, labels and of course a recipe and instruction booklet to help guide and inspire you along the way.

The range of Grow Your Own Tea Kits are ideal for anyone that loves a good cuppa - each kit also comes with a ‘proper’ sized enamel mug (nice and large!). Select from peppermintchamomileechinacea or lemon balm to treat your Secret Santa to a fun and delicious pressie. They will think of you every time they enjoy a cup of their homegrown tea. From $24.95.

For the Zero Waste Enthusiast

Know someone who's trying to reduce their waste, or perhaps someone you think needs to? We have heaps of great zero-waste, on the go options that are perfect for Secret Santa!

We love the Green + Kind Cutlery, especially the Natural Wood Luxe Set - complete with a little pouch it's perfect for on the go. 

And if your Secret Santa doesn't have a Reusable Cup then that's a must buy. We love the bright colours from KeepCup, they even have a Star Wars Range which make fab Christmas gifts.

For the Chocolate Lover

Nothing says Christmas quite like a little indulgence, and we have a huge selection to indulge in. From White Chocolate to Cookies & Cream, Berries & Cream to The Party Bar, you can't look past the new range from Treat Dreams when it comes to picking out some chocolate for your Secret Santa.

And if Hazelnut is your thing, Vego is where it's at. Pralines, spread, bars and more, Vego is a vegan chocolate lovers dream.

You can shop our full range of chocolate and confectionary here.

For the Office Beauty Queen

If you Secret Santa loves taking care of themselves, or you think they are in need of a little pamper, we have just the selection for you!

We love the entire range from The Australian Natural Soap Company, choose from Shampoo & Conditioner Bars, Luxury Soaps, Shave Kits and Beard Shampoo, the range is plastic-free, and comes in compostable packaging!

Dirty Hippie is also a fab choice, with luxury soaps and bath salts perfect for pampering after a long day at work.

For the Socially Conscience Colleague

Gifting socks can seem a little cliche, but these stylish goods from Conscious Step are anything but your average pair of cotton socks. Every pair of Conscious Step socks supports a partner organisation to carry out world-changing work. The company works with partners based on the direct impact that the organisation provides in the world.

From planting trees to feeding children, they look for the small actions that add up to a big impact. Each sock also comes with an embroidered symbol that represents the impact you’ve created and the cause you are supporting. This Christmas, why not up the sock game and give a gift that keeps on giving? From $17.95.

We also love these incredibly practical produce bags from Green + Kind, a brilliant gift for anyone trying to reduce their single-use plastic consumption. Never again will you have to seek out and fiddle with the classic supermarket plastic produce bag dispenser, but instead have your own reusable, eco-friendly bags that can be simply stored away in the handy (and adorable) pouch. Once the shopping is done, you can just pop your produce straight in the fridge as the bags are made from breathable, 100% rPET (recycled drink bottles) material. Available in both 4pk or 8pk, they are a perfect, feel-good gift that will make both your Secret Santa and the planet happy! From $11.95.

For the Bake-a-holic

There’s no denying Christmas is a time for indulgence - however, the joy from a standard Christmas cake isn’t always shared by everyone. Enter these delectable cake mixes from The Gluten Free Food Co, with their gluten-free and vegan Chocolate Cake Mix that tastes just as good (if not better than) your favourite chocolate cake, the delicious Quick & Easy Cup Cake Mix, and the Banana Bread Mix. You could even try baking one for your Secret Santa (they are incredibly simple to make) - however, the obvious challenge would be not to eat it beforehand… Bake Mixes from $14.95.

For the Eco Homemaker

If you want a gorgeous treat for someone who loves having an eco-friendly home try these compostable dishcloths. In gorgeous designs, they are fun and functional and only $6.95 each. Shop Retro Kitchen Dishcloths

Bonus Secret Santa idea: For the office dog!

It’s not a glamorous present, however an extremely useful one! Perfect for when you’re tasked with taking the office dog out and about during the day. These bags are perfect to keep in the office so that you’re never caught out by any unexpected surprises. The BioBags doggy bags are certified compostable and are a brilliant alternative to plastic bags. $7.95.

Finding a suitable eco-friendly Secret Santa gift can be a bit of a mission, however, by putting your own touch on some of these ideas you can create a really memorable and much-loved present. Christmas is of course not just about the presents but the act of giving and receiving, which what makes this time of year so wonderfully special!
