6 Green Gifts Under $20

Oct 30, 2014 | written by:


Whether you have an earth-loving friend, or someone who just seems to have “everything” we have put together a list of gifts that are not only unique, but are also considered eco-friendly. They can be for any occasion; use them as stocking stuffers, personalized birthday gifts, or even just to remind a loved one you are thinking of them! You'll be tempted to keep some of these for yourself, so we promise we won't tell. 


GemSprouts Necklace

These hand-blown glass orb necklaces allow plant lovers to bring a little bit of "green" with them wherever they go. You can choose one with a baby's breath, dandelion, and even a cactus. Every pendant is unique, handmade and reasonably priced. Not only do they make pendants, but they also make party favors for guest. Here's the eco-bonus: portion of every sale they make is donated to charities and organizations that aid with conservation efforts!


CocoandMilkweed Recycled Wallet

At 5" wide x 3.5" tall, this wallet is perfect for any bag of any size, or easy to fit in pockets. Not only that, but this cute wallet is also made of organic cotton, bamboo and recycled plastic bottles. We all have those friends who refuse to get rid of their wallets  but it's okay because this one also makes the perfect gift card holder!


Seed Bombs 

Every muslin bag, which makes it ideal for gift giving, comes with seed bombs inside that allows the user to start their own random little gardens with ease. The biggest difference between throwing out seeds and these seed bombs is that with seed bombs, you are sending these plant seeds off with nutrients mixed in. The wildflowers that grow from them are native to the Midwest and will attract and create a sustainable habitat for birds, butterflies, bees, and small mammals.


Recycled License Plate Sign

For the quirky home decorator, these handmade signs made from a Michigan artist will surely help brighten his or her place. It's rustic, creative and you can personalize it with up to 12 letters. It is 100 percent made from recycled materials.


Treedom Tree

Don't have enough time to go shopping or wait for the shipping time for a gift? You can still give your loved ones thoughtful, sentimental gifts. You can pick from an Avocado tree that will be planted in Kenya, a Mangrove in Senegal, or a Coffee tree in Haiti. Your friend will receive a personalized message through email, access to the location of the tree through Google Maps, and pictures of its  process so you can witness it together over time. It's a gift that keeps on growing!


Fruit Infuser Water Bottle 

Flavored water does not get more natural than this; this bottle, made with BPA free plastic, has a built-in fruit infuser. You slice up your fruit of choice and add it to the infuser. Just add water and you're ready for a thirst-quenching, natural drink...on the go!
