This gift ideas might be sound a little unique and unusual, but if the person is interested in sustainable living, they will be pleased to get something like this.

Herbs and Spices

Cool gift for someone who likes to cook. There are so many shops where you can buy herbs and spices in bulk too. You can then create a cute herbs and spices set on your own, fill it into a small glass jars and it’s a perfect give-away.

Bathroom Zero-waste Starter Set

This is also perfect gift, that you can arrange as you want and what the person needs. There are many options like: Bamboo toothbrush, body lotions, soaps, toothpaste, bath bombs, reusable make-up remover pads. 

Sustainable books

There is a huge choice of books that came out this year about sustainability, zero-waste lifestyle, plastic free living, eco living, vegan cookbooks. I have no example for you right now, but visit a bookshop and you will get tons of ideas. 

Set with ingredients

This is also nice gift for some who likes to make homemade products. You can simple arrange a box or basket with ingredients for a homemade cleaning or cosmetics products like baking soda, white vinegar, coconut oil, plant-based oils. Just use your creativity.

Recipe box

For someone who love to cook create a basket with ingredients for a vegan dish and put the recipe to that too. 


Cool idea how to avoid buying something unuseful. Just be careful about choosing a shop, if it’s right for that person.

Essential oils

Very versatile and nice gift. Essential oils could be used in different ways. As room air freshener or you can add them to almost all homemade products. You can for example choose 3-5 and add a little description about them and their effect. 

Handmade Gifts

If you are someone who likes to sew, paint or create handmade jewelry, you can make a nice personal gift. I am sure it would meant a lot to someone that a bought CD.


If you love to cook or bake, why not give homemade cookies, pestos or jams to someone.
