24 Dec Eco-Friendly Holiday Gifts: Cozy Chic
Christmas is almost here, but there is still plenty of time to shop the Verte Luxe Holiday Boutique for eco-friendly holiday gifts. Start the new year afresh by browsing our favorite sustainable choices for a cozy home. Every eco-conscious item is unique, luxurious, and also helps us support our friends at Healthy Seas as they work to clean up ocean plastic.
1. Set a Mood
Nothing says ambiance like a quality candle, yet many feature potentially harmful chemicals and toxic dyes. That’s why we love Les Ruches Gardenia Partfaite Verre 8 oz Candle ($68). This organic beeswax eco-friendly alternative enables you to set a mood while keeping your home safe and clean. If you’re seeking a longer-lasting burn, then gift the Le Tabac Verre Minimaliste Candle ($548) in the 94oz.
2. Moon Vibes
Channel the moon’s tranquil essence with the Large Moon Jar ($425) from Jason Fox Ceramics. Enjoy a one-of-a-kind, handmade piece featuring a subtle shadow pattern designed to mimic the gentle lunar glow. Ideal as a standalone centerpiece or a multi-functional vase, it’s the perfect addition to any modern, cozy interior.
3. The Softest Streetwear
Whether staying in or going out, enjoy 24/7 comfort and style with Softwear’s Soft Hoodie ($78) and Soft Jogger Pants ($88) set. This “softest hoodie ever made” comes from a Brooklyn-based female entrepreneur who searched high and low for perfectly-fitted, ultra-soft loungewear. Now, she’s designed a sustainable option made with natural fabrics and non-toxic dyes. Choose from six colors to suit every style.
4. A Cozy Cup of Tea
There’s nothing cozier than a hot beverage. Make tea-time a luxury treat with the beautiful clay Dragon Egg Tea Pot ($65) from Pao Tea. Pair with the company’s signature Cookie Monster Oolong Tea Lemon ($20) for a gifting match made in heaven. Every small batch of loose-leaf, artisanal Pao Tea comes from local farmers in China’s southern Fujian province, skilled in traditional techniques that create flavors worth remembering.
5. The Perfect Cozy Accent
The gorgeously handcrafted Highland Pillow Collection ($135) from The Global Trunk repurposes vintage CORTE material (women’s skirts) worn in the Colotenango village of Guatemala. A wonderful accent piece for any home, discover your new favorite room accessory.
6. A Cleaner Clean
Freshen up your indoor space for the new year with the LEVO Custom Detox Package. Enjoy a 1-hour clean product expert consultation in which the LEVO team will identify toxic products in your cleaning arsenal and supply a list of clean swaps. Every package is personalized to the client, making this a particularly meaningful gift.
7. Warm Fuzzies
Can’t travel to see family or friends this holiday? Send the next best thing to a hug: the Forever Spring Luxuriously Soft Mohair Throw ($295) from L’Atelier Global. Add a touch of vibrant color to any interior design motif with a timeless heirloom featuring naturally soft, toasty warm mohair.
8. A Sustainable Table
This Eco-Essentials Combo from Bohemian Bowls ($24.50) can inspire any foodie to reduce, reuse, and repurpose. Rescue a coconut bowl and rescue the planet by using reusable plant-based, biodegradable materials instead of plastic. Each unique set includes one small coconut bowl, in addition to one reusable bamboo utensil set.
