Eco-Friendly Gift Guide 2020

Looking for some creative gift giving inspiration? I've got you covered with this themed list to help you find the perfect eco-friendly presents for homebodies, coffee drinkers, teens, beauty lovers and more!

Simply shop through the links in this post, (I do not receive any commission from any of these links, they are just here for your convenience.) to grab these eco-friendly gifts for your friends and family.

I've included lots of amazing small businesses and Etsy shops in addition to stores you're probably already shopping from such as Amazon, Target, and Crate and Barrel. This list isn't perfectly eco-friendly or zero waste, but it's meant to help you choose intentional gifts, shop small when you can, and remember to consider the Earth when you buy new. Pick out gifts that have a useful purpose, are long-lasting or made from natural materials, or gift an experience instead!
