Giving gifts is something we love here at Movement Matters!
Isn’t it heartwarming when someone’s face lights up as they open a gift? With birthdays and holidays right around every corner, we’re here to give you sustainable gift ideas for every occasion.
Give The Gift of Experiences
Experiences are awesome!
Most of us have probably received a gift that we weren’t able to use. Maybe we already had a crockpot, pajamas, and body lotion and didn’t have space for another set. Imagine if instead, someone gifted you the perfect experience!
There are so many options to choose from: wine tasting, hot air ballooning, movie tickets, concerts, paint balling, archery, fine dining, white water rafting, pottery making.
You can also create an experience for someone or gift them your expertise. Like teaching something you can do. For example, teach a dance class, take someone’s photos, give them a cooking lesson, show them how to change a tire. The options are endless.
Give the gift of experience and save our planet’s resources!
Buy Sustainable Products
Consider shopping from a local sustainable business. We’re so lucky to be able to live in an era where eco-friendly shopping is more accessible.
Give an E-Gift Card
Ditch the packaging and give an e-gift card. Many businesses are shifting towards eco friendly practices, and you can find e-gift cards on their websites.
Donate to An Organization They Love
Most people have a cause that is near and dear to their hearts. Whether it’s animals, feeding the hungry, providing low cost shelter, saving the rainforests, consider making a donation in someone’s name. This will not only reduce waste, but also show that special someone that you took the time to give them a personalized and thoughtful gift.
Pay Their Bills!
Yup, you heard it. Consider paying for someone’s bills!
We all love being able to put some money in savings. How about helping your friend, sister, or grandma keep a bit of change in their pockets? Cover their Netflix for a month. Or pay for their Disney+ subscription. Maybe even give them a little extra via PayPal or Venmo that they can put towards whatever they’d like.
Any option you choose will be great! Your loved one will be filled with warm fuzzies and Mother Earth will Thank You.
