Boho Gifts for Good & Eco Gifts
With the holidays coming up (even more quickly than usual, it seems), it’s easy to get caught up in the stress. But this season, it’s all about doing good — good for the environment, good for those who matter most in our lives, and good for ourselves (we deserve a treat too!). So instead of giving up and just buying gift cards for everyone on your list, let us help you nail down the perfect eco-friendly gifts with this guide.
For the star who shines bright wherever she goes:
Vegan Leather Pants by Free People
We know that buying clothes for other people is usually best to be avoided. But when the clothing in question is a pair of vegan leather pants with embellished stars and the gift receiver is your best friend who is known to steal the spotlight wherever she goes, you can’t say no. Or better yet, you could always use a new holiday outfit to wear while delivering all of these presents, so you might as well grab another pair while you’re at it. These Free People skinny pants bring bold style whether you pair them with a cozy oversized sweater or you slip on a bodysuit and some booties for a night of dancing with your besties. And of course, with the vegan leather construction, even the most eco-conscious will fall in love.
For the free-spirited traveler:
Fair Trade Genuine Leather Carryall by Bohemian Mama x Moonwater Co.
Even your favorite friend who you only get to see when they make a quick trip home between global adventures deserves a little extra love this season. And there’s nothing they can use more than an easy leather weekender that not only will hold everything they need but will show off their bright personality wherever they go. Might we suggest tucking in a plane ticket to come visit you (or booking yourself a flight out to meet them next time they make it over to Bali), to really give this beautiful bag a world tour. Besides the stunning design, this Bohemian Mama x Moonwater Co. collaboration relies on master weavers from Guatemala, so you can gift proudly knowing you’re helping preserve the art and tradition of the Mayan people.
For the impossible-to-gift friend:
We all know someone who has everything (or claims they really don’t need anything this year), leaving you stumped for holidays and birthdays alike. But chances are, they don’t have a hand-woven Moroccan pillow yet. And if they do, they don’t have this hand-woven, one-of-a-kind Moroccan pillow. There’s nothing better than supporting female artists, although brightening up a bohemian home with a female artist’s organically dyed creations comes in at a close second.
For your GNO (Girls' Night Out) group:
Plant Based Skincare Facial Set
Sometimes, it’s more about the memories than the gift itself. This year, gather everyone you love for a spa night (complete with movies, wine, and snacks, of course). Made with organic ingredients, you can feel good that you are loving on your skin with nothing but the best, and we haven’t even told you the best part yet — you get to cover your face in a glitter mask. Make sure to document the night with photos and for an iconic New Year’s gift (yeah, we’re making that a thing now), print the pictures out and put them in vintage picture frames for everyone who came to your pampered-night-in.
For the honest-to-goodness boho mama in your life:
Keep things even easier this year, and cross two names off your list with one gift — there’s nothing better than giving your sweet mama friend something to keep her baby as cozy as can be (and adorable to boot). This organic swaddle scarf makes the sweetest baby holiday gift that’s as good for the environment as it is for mini’s delicate skin, whether they want to swaddle their angel with a dreamy message or they want to hang it as a tapestry as their little one grows up.
