Natural living ideas are all over the internet but what about gift ideas for someone looking to create a more non-toxic home?
If your friend has only just started their holistic living journey, they might feel overwhelmed by all the various products out there.
The first thing to remember is that it’s not a race and realistically, it will take time to incorporate organic products into their daily routine. However, you can help your friend get started with one of these thoughtful gifts.
Here are 9 healthy home gifts they’ll love.
1. Organic Cotton Blanket
Everyone needs a blanket so you’ll know this will be a useful gift.
This organic cotton soft blanket is beautifully-made in the United States with a gorgeous herringbone weave. The natural cream color works well with any bedroom decor. It also comes in throw size for the living room sofa.
2. Organic Sheets
We spend a third of our lives in bed so the quality and materials in our bedding absolutely matters. That’s why we always recommend organic cotton sheets that are made without pesticides, bleach, or other harmful chemicals. Who doesn’t love being treated to new quality cotton sheets?
3. Essential Oils & Diffuser
Essential oils are very popular for their potential health benefits. They can invigorate or calm the senses, depending on which oils you choose.
If you wish to create an uplifting space for your friend, we recommend the citrus scent of bergamot essential oils.
If you want to create a tranquil environment, lavender essential oils are always popular.
An essential oils diffuser will allow the soothing scents to fill their space sothey can enjoy the benefits of essential oils for hours.
We recommend using certified organic essential oils or wild-harvested essential oils from a sustainable source.
4. Sustainably-Made Tote Bag
Organic cotton tote bags can be used at the farmers market, grocery store, or when traveling. This is such a functional and economical gift.
One of the best sites to get tote bags is Etsy because there are a vast array of designs featured by small businesses!
5. Air Purifier
Give your friend the gift of improved air quality. Every natural home needs an air purifier, ideally multiple ones for the most utilized rooms.
Air purifiers help clear indoor air of harmful chemicals, dust, dander, pollen, and airborne diseases. Air purifiers are also very helpful from those who suffer from asthma or allergies.
There are many quality air purifiers on the market so find one that is within your price range but will still filter out air pollutants with a HEPA filter.
We personally love this HoMedics Air Purifier.
6. Stainless Steel Containers
Stainless steel containers are great eco-friendly kitchen items that reduce waste while keeping food fresh.
Instead of using plastic containers that may include BPA’s, stainless steel containers are safe, durable, and will last for years.
This may not seem like an exciting gift but it’s a solid choice that your friend will use regularly.
7. Water Filter
The quality of our water is vital to our health so your loved one would absolutely appreciate a water filter for the kitchen. It makes for a great house-warming gift or wedding gift!
This water filter is designed to remove viruses, bacteria, trihalomethanes, and more. However, there are other more affordable options on the market as well if this is out of your price range.
8. Organic Skincare
Organic and natural skincare is a fun yet important part of a daily routine. Our skin is our largest organ so what we put on it matters. Ingredients in your cleanser, moisturizer, and other skincare products should be both safe and effective.
9. Aloe Vera Plant
This list would not be complete without some greenery. We love a good low-maintenance plant that is also a natural air purifier.
Aloe Vera is not only a wonderful plant to act as a touch of green home decor, but it also has potential health benefits since it is considered a medicinal plant.
Cut open one of the leaves and use the clear gel for sunburns, bug bites, or even in a smoothie for an antioxidant boost. Aloe Vera can also aid in healthy digestion and can strengthen the immune system.
Aloe vera plants can typically be found at your local nursery or grocery store.
Whichever gift you choose, your friend will know that you care about their health and happiness, and that means everything.
