Christmas: 20 ideas for eco-friendly and original gifts for less than 30 euros

As Christmas approaches, we wanted to share with you a selection of some eco-friendly and original gift ideas, all for less than 30 euros 🤩. But, before getting to the heart of the matter, here are some little “tips” for a more ethical and more ecological Christmas!

First of all, doing it in advance is eco-friendly 🌿. Eh yes ! By starting your purchases several weeks (or even several months before the holidays for the most organized), you give yourself more time to search for the gifts that will best suit your loved ones, in accordance with your values, but also at the best price and with the best quality. This will allow you to avoid “spur of the moment” purchases made at the last minute because “you have to find something” 🤦🏻‍♀️.

Also think about the markets and designer boutiques , which are full of original ideas and ethical products, often handmade! For Montpellier residents, go to "L'ateliées" , our workshop / boutique with other creators, but also the opportunity to meet!

Last but not least: packaging 🎁. Like every year, we can only advise you to avoid over-packaging and thus the astronomical quantity of gift wrap which will most of the time... be thrown away! Our solution: furoshikis or reusable fabric gift bags ! You can collect them after the big unpacking or offer them to your loved ones who can then reuse them to give a gift in turn.



An original gift that you must not have come across often: the baguette bag or the bread bag! Ideal for transporting bread from the bakery to home without using disposable packaging, but also for storing it for longer (thanks to the linen which helps regulate humidity).

If your loved ones are not yet converted: go for it! It's really the perfect gift to introduce them to zero waste without rushing them too much. With their pretty patterns and flashy colors, our coated cotton flat charlottes are a real alternative to the use of disposable packaging for food preservation. You can also offer them with a pretty ceramic from Claycraft , a ceramist who has recently arrived in Montpellier 😍.

It's like THE zero-waste basic to permanently eliminate single-use cotton from the bathroom! Extra-soft and made of GOTS cotton, Trinquette washable cottons will appeal to sensitive skin, for gentle make-up removal and cleaning (they are also suitable for children and babies).

We don't think about it often and yet it's essential. Perfectly suited for lunches taken at the office , for a snack at the gym, for children's snacks... A great alternative for less waste during your meals , but also and above all for healthier cooking : yours.

Perfect for keeping Christmas tea warm 🥰. It's the basic thing to offer everywhere around you to get rid of plastic bottles for good . And the icing on the cake (or on the log), you can accessorize it with a pretty Trinquette clutch!

Solid soaps , a pretty care set for women or men, a small kit for curly hair ... You are spoiled for choice! We advise you to take a look at Savonnerie Janine which makes absolutely magnificent solid soaps, but also at Umaï which offers a wide range of solid products for the whole family and all skin/hair types 🌿.

This is our latest nugget and also a super original gift idea for your loved ones 🎁. Yes, it's never been seen before: finally a pretty towel to dry your hair without damaging it! Reversible, it allows maximum moisture to be gently absorbed (thanks to one side in organic cotton terry), but also for plopping (to promote the natural waviness of the hair) thanks to one side in OEKO cotton jersey -TEX.

Taking care of yourself also involves movement. We recently discovered the Gaïa Skin brand which offers ethical sports clothing and accessories . Their slogan “Get moving and make things happen”, we love it!

An oracle is an ideal gift to add a touch of magic to your daily life . To test, for fun, or more seriously... There are a multitude of them! We prefer them to be made from recycled paper and/or from sustainably managed forests.

A personal development book, alternative medicine, for the family... If you are lacking inspiration, we highly recommend the books written and illustrated by Lise Desportes : a real gold mine! Obviously, we can only advise you to favor local bookstores over web giants for your reading gifts this year 😉. The ultimate: offer your book in a pretty Trinquette book sleeve . Guaranteed effect!
