Now that December has officially arrived, it might feel as though your holiday shopping days are numbered. And if you’re shopping for someone who is into green living or if you’re transitioning into an eco-friendly lifestyle yourself, the task can seem even more daunting.
Here’s a round-up of some of the best green and eco gift sets to make your shopping list easy to navigate this year:
1. Glam Gifts from Pacifica
For anyone on your list who loves glamour and is going green, Pacifica is a great vegan cosmetics brand that offers a range of gifts. Their Take Me There sets include a perfume roll-on, body butter and lip tint in scents such as Hawaiian Ruby Guava, Tuscan Blood Orange, Island Vanilla and Indian Coconut Nectar.
Looking for more skin care options for your favourite green glamazon? Try the Good Karma Skincare gift set. And for the makeup lover, there’s the Wanderlust Beauty Set, which contains two eye shadows, a lip tint, and a BB Cream.
2. Eco Indulgences from Burt’s Bees
Another eco favourite is Burt’s Bees, which offers many different gift sets for everyone on your list. A Little Bit of Burt’s Bees sets in flavours like Pomegranate or Mango are great when you know that special someone loves a specific scent. They come with a flavoured Replenishing Lip Balm and Cuticle Creme each. Or for extra pampering, try the Mani Pedi Gift Set with Eco Tools Foot Brush and Pumice.
3. Aromatherapy Diffuser & Essential Oil Gift Sets from NOW
A great gift who loves aromatherapy is the NOW Solutions Ultrasonic Real Bamboo Oil Diffuser. It’s a sleek, stylish and green alternative to air fresheners. It’s BPA free and creates a mist from your loved one’s favourite scents that’s heat-free and lasts up to 8 hours.
Pair it with one of NOW’s essential oil kits like the Cheer Up Buttercup Uplifting Essential Oils Kit or the Let There be Peace and Quiet Relaxing Essential Oil Kit for a complete starter kit! For a holiday scent, put together your own festive kit using peppermint, balsam fir needle, or cinnamon cassia essential oils.

Maybe you’d like to treat someone you love to a healthy, cozy treat. For that, look no further than Tea Forte’s Warming Joy Petite Presentation Box. It includes classic holiday flavours such as Rum Raisin Biscotti and Spiced Ginger Plum. Pair with any of Tea Forte’s gorgeous Brewing Cups and you’ll have the perfect gift for the tea lover on your list!
