Top eco-friendly gift Ideas
It is safe to say that over the last ten years, the world has turned its attention to the environment.
That is, more people are working hard to reduce their CO2 footprint, as well as making sure that they make eco-friendly choices in their food, transport, and other options. So, it should not come as a surprise that when it comes to businesses, there has also been a swift change in the way that they run, but also in the gifts that are exchanged between them.
Yes, in 2023, corporate gift-giving is still very much in! In the past, gifting items like branded pens, notepads, and other plastic-based gifts would have been acceptable, but this year, that eco-shift is very much in full swing in this area. So, what are the best eco-friendly gift ideas? Read on to find out!
Branded Water Bottles
You will likely want your business gift to have your own business logo or name on it. The best starting place for eco-based gifts is a reusable set of water bottles. There are many online companies that can print these for you, such as anthembranding.com, but the importance in this area is the materials that have been used.
So, aim for water bottles that are made from recyclable (or recycled) plastic, metal, or even ones that are made from collected ocean plastic. This will send a message that your company cares about the planet while also giving a great gift to a client.
In the world of fast-paced business, no one is going to hate a coffee hamper!
In fact, gifting a coffee hamper can be a great opportunity for your company to gift unusual types of ground coffee, which may have cultural relevance to many people at your clients’ company. Just make sure the coffee is fair trade!
While you would assume that a desktop terrarium would be on the cheaper side, this is only the case if you make them yourself and buy the ingredients in bulk.
Of course, this is doable (and fun!) and makes a striking and unique business gift. In fact, you can even purchase small jam jars, some soil and air plants, and, voila, desktop terrariums for everyone at your client’s workplace!
In a similar vein as the terrariums, succulents in small pots will always be an adorable and cute eco-gift.
They are easy to look after, are affordable, and are great for the planet, as well as the office environment. Unlike terrariums which are closed, succulents offer air purifying qualities, which is seen as great when in the workplace. Of course, if your client is a proprietor of succulents, they may already have a few, so it might be best to choose another item on this list!
If 2023 is known for anything else besides being eco-friendly, it is also the year of mindfulness, in part due to the COVID crisis in 2020.
A mindfulness hamper will include things like face masks, essential oils, bamboo towels, and even beeswax candles and incense. This can be eco-friendly (or not) depending on the packaging, so choose carefully!
