Perfect Eco-Friendly Christmas Gifts for Boyfriend!
At a time where our earth is at such a crucial stage, many of us want to reduce our environmental footprint in any way we can. If you are struggling to find the perfect Christmas gifts for boyfriend this year, think outside the traditional gift giving square to the shape of a globe, in order to satisfy both yours and his want to reduce harm to our planet.
Experiences as Eco-Christmas Gifts for Boyfriend
What better way to you show care for the guy who loves to have a light ecological footprint than by giving him the gift of experiences? In a current global climate (pardon the pun) that places a huge emphasis on possessions, a perfect way to begin brainstorming for Christmas gifts for boyfriend can start with activities. This could range from getting him closer to nature through a guided bushwalk, or surf lessons that will help him further connect with the planet he cares so much about; or perhaps get the bikes out of the shed instead, and spend time exploring the streets of a funky nearby suburb – bar or café hopping in search of local produce, while getting valuable time together.
Give him that extra time to do what he loves best by giving him a book of vouchers that are specifically related to reducing environmental impact. If he is super keen on recycling, or you feel needs a kick in the bum in that department, giving him vouchers can be wonderful Christmas gifts for boyfriend. You could take over the recycling for a period of time – an awesome way to save money while also getting your recycling system in great working order. Similarly, you could also grab your reusable bags and take him to the local farmers’ market – this is a really nice way to spend time together and well as supporting locally grown produce and the local economy. Farmer’s markets often include stalls providing healthy and delicious lunches and sweet treats, so you can treat him to lunch while you’re shopping.
Thoughtful Eco-Friendly Christmas Gifts for Boyfriend
Instead of using the car to get to the supermarket or even the local farmers market, get him seeds so you can start planting your own food. There’s no better way to reduce your food mileage than merely stepping into your backyard to grab those veggies for dinner. Only plant what you think you need to ensure less use of the fridge or freezer, and taste the serious difference of ultra-fresh produce. Included in your seed gift could be a promise that you will cook the first few meals from your garden so it feels like you have gone to even greater lengths to make him feel special!
Alternatively, you could put together a list of awesome environmental organisations and present it in a cool way so he can choose from a range of causes that you will donate to on his behalf for Christmas. Christmas is the perfect time for this, as he will probably already feel like he has received enough stuff from other people and would love to donate his present from you to a worthy cause.
Remember, these ideas don’t have to end with Christmas gifts for boyfriend – you can certainly expand your eco-friendly gift giving family wide this year, setting an awesome example through creativity, while satisfying your commitment to the environment!
