Welcome to December! Black Friday is behind us and the Christmas season is in full swing. Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Are you looking for Christmas gift ideas for the hard to buy for or as an alternate to impersonal gifts that are forgotten before the Christmas tree is down? Why not choose a Christmas gift that gives a little more this year;
Green Christmas Gift Ideas
Gift of a tree from ReForest London – make a donation to ReForest London, buy a tree gift voucher for friends, family, clients or customers, or sponsor a tree in someone’s name are all great options for tree planting and gifting in London, Ontario
Biodegradable tree seed pen from Tree Canada – Tree Canada has plenty more gift giving ideas, like trees, Tree Canada clothes, mugs, USB sticks, water bottles and more; all in the name of making a greener and healthier living environment for Canadians
A stack of books from Plan Canada – education is one of the best ways to improve not only an individual’s life, but the community they live in and possibly the world. Plan Canada also offers many other gifts of hope which change lives.
Bird-friendly Coffee – from Birds & Beans in support of Ontario Nature (you can also get holiday cards, Ontario Nature gear and other ideas for green giving)
Gift of Canadian Nature – this symbolic gift from Nature Conservancy Canada is yours, along with a 2016 calendar, when you make a donation.
- Make a donation to an eco-friendly, environmentally sound company which is working to make our world a better place. Charity Village is a great place to start looking for worthy companies to support this holiday season.
- Buy from local, small businesses in your community. When you buy local, you reduce your carbon footprint. And when you buy from a small business you support a family in your community. Those dollars stay right in your hometown, which benefits everyone. Look for handmade items, local crafts and area artists to support. You just might find better quality items and have the opportunity to personalize the gifts you give.
