The Ultimate Eco-Friendly Gift Ideas for Parents, Kids, Teachers and Carers

After the year it’s been, we can finally rejoice in the most festive time of the year – Christmas! I think this Christmas will hold an even more treasured place in people’s hearts as we rejoin our family and friends after being separated for so long. 

In the new normal we are still getting used to, online Christmas gift shopping is certainly going to be pushed to the limits as we try and find those perfect gifts. I know it’s only November, but no longer are we battling the car park frenzy and long checkout queues, we’re fighting for the all important space in the Australia Post truck!

So, let’s get cracking on some online gift ideas with our eco-friendly gift guide perfect for teachers, carers, Mums and even the kids.

For Teachers & Carers:

Kids love to say thank you to their teachers and get a real buzz gifting them something special. Teachers have a tough gig mentoring and helping our little ones battle life and learning and nothing says thank you like a gift from the heart.


Mini Snowglobe Christmas Ornament: Eco-friendly and oh so natural, this personalised appreciation keepsake will take pride of place on your teachers Christmas tree for years to come.

For Mum:


Mums do so much for us during the year and sometimes it can be hard finding just the right gift that says thank you and I love you, that’s just for her.


Home Print – Original artwork designed by Australian Artist Elise Honeyman, “Home is wherever I’m with you” is the perfect reminder of how much you mean to your Mum and how much she means to you. The stunning watercolours will complement any decor. Printed on 100% cotton, it will look amazing in your favourite picture frame.

Eco-friendly Water Bottle – It’s now even easier for Mum to keep up her hydration during her busy day with this unique filtered water bottle. Australian made and delivering great tasting, purified water with each refill, Mum will feel a million dollars whilst doing her part for the environment.

Reusable Coffee Cup – A Mum’s day is never complete without her caffeine fix. I know as a Mum my morning coffee is just as important as my mid afternoon one. But, drinking said coffee while it’s still hot can be hit and miss. These reusable and sustainable coffee cups are insulated so that precious coffee stays warm that little bit longer.

For Dad:


Eco-Friendly Razors– Dads tend to be one of the harder ones to buy presents for. When you ask them what they want for Christmas, they just shrug or say “just you!”. As sweet as that is, we can’t wrap ourselves up and pop us under the tree! Treat Dad to his very ownEco Razor made from stainless steel and not plastic – these ones will truly last forever!

For The Kids:


Anamalz Wooden Toys – Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! The cutest animals you ever did see, these wooden ‘Anamalz’ are made from forest plantation beech wood and are eco-friendly. Just in time for Christmas, this gorgeous reindeer features antlers are made from a FDA approved material called TPR (an eco alternative to plastic). All paint is child friendly, glues are formaldehyde free and fabrics are AZO dye free. So you see, they couldn’t be more eco-friendly or safer for your child. With so many cute characters to choose from including a panda, emu, llama and many more, your child will have hours of fun playing farms and zoos with these critters.

Art Binder – Kids are always so excited to bring their artworks home from school or daycare to share with their family. Our personalised art binders are a great gift to start off the new year with a beautiful place to store their masterpieces. They’ll love being able to flick back through their art and show it off to others.
