It may seem counterintuitive to buy a bunch of little things to fill the stockings of someone who’s trying to be more eco-friendly, but I was raised in a stocking stuffer kind of family.

It’s a tough habit to break. 

Plus, sometimes those little gifts can just be plain, old fun!

Here’s my list of 20 eco-friendly stocking stuffers to put on your list today! 

Velcro snack bags

I have this Save the Bees set and they are really well made. We use them everyday!

Mesh produce bags

An absolute necessity at farmer’s markets and grocery stores. Grab a set with the tare weight on the bag for ease at checkout.

Loose tea

Tea ball infuser

Handmade soap

Lip scrub

Yoga mat spray

Shampoo bar

Flower or vegetable seeds

Beeswax wraps

Bamboo cutlery 

Reusable straws 

Bamboo toothbrush

Both the boxes and handles on these are biodegradable!

Seed pencils

I found these for my list of no-waste planner supplies and I think they’re amazing!

Cruelty free cosmetics or nail polish

Rx bars, Lara bars, or Kind bars

Jars of herb and spice blends

I like Penzey’s for these. They sell little jars and you can find some really interesting flavors!

Unique, eco-friendly products chosen just for you and your little one!

 Organic snacks or fruit

Essential oils

Dryer balls

DIY Wool Dryer Balls - Simple way to make your own dryer balls from yarn _

If stocking stuffers aren’t what you’re looking for, so many of these ideas will work for a larger gift, too.

Maybe grab a basket from your local thrift store and make themed gift by combining a few small presents together. 

You could make it a green lunch kit with the bamboo utensils and a couple velcro snack bags. 

Or gather a few self-care tools, like a shampoo bar, lip scrub, and some soothing soaps. 

However you gift them, eco-friendly stocking stuffers can be a thoughtful holiday gift for your earth-loving friends or relatives.
