Eco friendly Christmas gifts

 Those looking for green gifts have a lot to choose from if they know the kinds of things to look for.  While coffee houses like Paperman’s carry fair-trade coffee and teas, you can also find other items in many stores that are sustainably sourced or gentle on the earth.

AbFab is a home furnishings boutique in Caymanian Village on North Sound Road which carries all sorts of green wares, including recycled teak furniture that will warm the cockles of any environmentalist’s heart.

Their large white baskets are made of seagrass, a durable and sustainable material that beats the green socks off plastic. They’re a stylish and easy to love storage solution for homes of any style.

They also stock  woven seagrass and bamboo boxes and trays are an eco-friendly and bright way to keep you organized during the holidays, while these tall hampers are just the thing for spontaneous living-room cleanups just in case unexpected guests drop in.

At Bedside Manor in Camana Bay you can find  soft and cuddly kid’s hooded bathrobes, made with eco-friendly dyes that contain no heavy metals or formaldehyde. Moms will adore the super soft bamboo-based gowns and sleepwear from DreamSacks. Little ones will just love playing with Sophie the Giraffe, a classic teething toy made of flexible, renewable, natural rubber materials and non-toxic paint.

Some other  green gifts to consider include candles from Aquiesse which are not only beautiful to look at and smell, they are made from organic natural soy wax and use the highest quality lead free wicks for long lasting and clean burning candles, a perfect hostess gift. Bamboo throws also make a luxurious addition to any living space, and make a great gift.

A Christmas gift which lasts this stylish metal mistletoe is green for the best reasons – with a flat-folding design it tucks away with minimal storage concerns and its conversation-piece allure means it’s sure to be reused for years to come.
