Ethical and Sustainable Gift Ideas for Her 2019

December 29, 2018

Here at Alora, we are committed to creating sustainable and ethically made jewelry. Not only that, but we are always looking for ways to help our customers live a greener, more ethical life!

So here are some gift ideas for you in 2019!

Ethically Made Jewelry 

Of course, we think that the perfect give is a meaningful one. And bonus points if it is ethically made. Alora designs and creates jewelry in Canada and uses recycled materials and fair trade materials. Not only that, but all of our jewelry comes with a meaning! 

Here are a few pieces in our collection that are perfect for the person who cares about who makes their items!

Organic Pampering & Self-Care Gifts

We personally love giving gifts that encourage self-care. There is no better gift than StressCase's self-care gift boxes that encourage the reciepent to take care of themselves and destress.

Drying Racks

I know this is a boring gift, but no one likes drying clothes outside in the winter (or almost any other day in Canada). Be thoughtful and buy your boo a drying rack! It is a practical gift, but it is good for the environment and it will help your gift recipient save money! You can always pair this gift with another money saving gift like

Reusable Makeup Removers

We ladies wipes almost every day of our lives. Truth be told, we are too lazy to wash our faces every night, so we use some Micellar water and a wipe before bed. But all those wipes in the garbage bin add up and they are bad for the environment.

Reusable Coffee Mug

Know a coffee addict? Help them ditch the disposables and get them a reusable coffee cup! Choose anything made from recyclable plastic, bamboo or glass. To really show you care pair this gift with some organic, locally roasted coffee beans! 

Reusable Straws

Reusable straws are trending right now! While stainless-steel straws are the most popular, I would say that you should get a silicone straw that is biodegradable :) However, at the end of the day, it doesn't matter which type of reusable straw you get as any reusable straw is the best alternative to plastic.

Potted Plants

I would say that almost everyone loves getting plants as a gift. If you want your recipient to think about your several times a week get them a plant they can use and cook with! Try herbs as a potted plant gift to show you care.

This is kind of a cop out, but wine is always in as a gift. My personal favourite is Lobeta, an organic Spanish wine. Honestly, you cannot go wrong with a bottle of organic wine. Ever.

Our Money is Still on Jewelry!

We love jewelry because it will be worn every day as a reminder of your thoughtfulness.
