Zero Waste Homemade Gifts

Gifting is best kept simple. There's nothing more stressful than struggling to find the right gift during the festive season. It can start to feel more like an obligation than a joy, and it's awful thinking what you've purchased (or been gifted!) might just end up in landfill.

There are lots of ways to simplify the holidays as well as the gifts we buy. Celebrating sustainably is possible if we're open to gifting second-hand items or purchasing responsibly-made gifts more often. Another option is to make something homemade.

Over the last few months I've been sharing low waste recipes and simple DIYs, which would make ideal homemade gifts for the festive season. They're easy to put together and affordable too. Making a few gifts for your loved ones is a simple way to gift something meaningful and might save you a little money.

Throughout the year I save up a selection of recycled packaging, things like boxes, tissue paper, jars, and twine, to reuse as a low waste gift wrapping option. It's perfect for putting the finishing touches to homemade gifts whether it's a box of cookies or a bottle of fire cider.
