Christmas is fast approaching and as the holiday season approaches, many of us will have to scramble to get a last-minute present. The eco-minded person always frets about the carbon footprint of buying yet another item that is not exactly a necessity but which is part of social convention.

Fortunately, there are several eco-friendly Christmas gifts on offer these days. These could be anything from organic products to recycled crafts that often please the receiver even more than an environmentally onerous item.

The internet is a great place to start. Energy Refuge’s store has a wide range of solar powered products that can make great gifts. Garden lights, gadgets and a wide range of domestic appliances powered with emissions-free energy. also has a wide range of options, including fashion, beauty, home decor, baby gifts, accessories, toys, gifts for pets and much more.

If you want to up the ante of your eco friendly gift credentials even more, why not try recycled gifts? Uncommon Goods has a whole section of recycled gifts and some of them look stunning. Or you can look for a local artisan who works with recycled materials.

Another option is to scour Etsy’s vintage section. You’ll be amazed at the variety of objects that are on display on this website. It’s great if you want to give an usual present from other parts of the world. Soviet kitsch? You can bet they’ll have it. It’s like trawling through massive, well curate vintage show, but from the comfort of your desk.

Happy hunting for Christmas eco friendly gifts!
