Top 15 Eco-Friendly Gifts Under $25

Say you have someone on your gift list who’s going green. You’d love to get them some eco-friendly gifts they’ll actually use and appreciate, but you also can’t afford to break the bank. Or perhaps you’re the one trying to live more eco-consciously, and you want to give everyone on your list something that won’t hurt the environment.

While eco-friendly gifts have a reputation of being expensive, I’ve put together this list of cheap eco-friendly gifts under $25 to help you stay within your gift-giving budget.

1. Cork Notebook

Cork Notebook

Know someone who likes to write or journal? This cork notebook makes a great eco-friendly gift. It features a cork cover and acid-free paper. It also has a pen loop to help keep the pen or pencil close at hand.

2. Ethique Eco-Friendly Hair Sampler

Ethique Hair Sampler

We throw away 80 billion plastic bottles every year from just shampoo and conditioner. However, with Ethique and their bottleless shampoos and conditioners, you can help eliminate some of that plastic.

The Ethique Eco-Friendly Hair Sampler comes with three shampoos and two conditioners, which makes it a great way to try out the different scents. The company also offers a body sampler and face sampler.

3. EcoTools Gift Set

EcoTools Gift Set

I love to use EcoTools for my makeup brushes because they’re made using cruelty-free bristles, bamboo handles, and recycled metal parts. The company also makes annual donations to Glamour’s The Girl Project to support women empowerment. This EcoTools gift set is a great way to give a lady all the makeup tools she needs.

4. Seeded Gift Wrap

Seeded Gift Wrap

If you want to wrap your eco-friendly gifts in zero-waste wrapping paper, this seeded gift wrap is an excellent option. It’s made from 100% recycled paper and is embedded with wildflower seeds. When your gift recipient is done unwrapping your gift, he or she can plant the gift wrap and grow beautiful flowers.

5. Bee’s Wrap

Bee's Wrap Food Wrap

If you’re looking for affordable eco-friendly gifts for someone else, they might already have some Bee’s Wrap. However, let’s be honest, if their household is anything like my household, they can always use another set. This set of Bee’s Wrap reusable food wrap includes three convenient sizes.

6. Reusable Food Storage Bags

Reusable Food Storage Bags

Along with reusable food wrap, we always seem to need more reusable food storage bags in our home. I like these bags because they’re leakproof and safe to go in the freezer, refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher. They’re made from silicone, so you don’t have to worry about BPA or other toxins.

7. Beard Brush and Comb Set

Beard Brush and Comb Set

If you’re looking for eco-friendly gifts for him, consider the Beard Brush and Comb Set from Grow a Beard. The compact size makes it ideal for travel or slipping into his pocket for touch-ups throughout the day. The brush and comb are made with bamboo for durability and eco-friendliness.

This bamboo cutlery set is a great way to reduce plastic waste by eliminating the need for disposable plastic utensils. Bamboo is strong and safe to use in the dishwasher. If it ever wears out, you can compost it. Plus, this set comes with its own beautiful and convenient travel pouch.

9. Stainless Steel Drinking Straws

Stainless Steel Reusable Straw

Another great way to reduce plastic use is with this set of stainless steel drinking straws. This set includes four straight straws and four bent straws.

10. Reusable K-Cups

Reusable K-Cup

While Keurigs make a great cup of coffee, their K-cups are notorious waste producers. These reusable K-cups make great eco-friendly gifts for someone who loves to use their Keurig to make coffee in the morning but doesn’t want to throw out a plastic cup each time.

These reusable K-cups are also an excellent way to make your home a little greener. If you’re interested in even more outstanding swaps, check out our post on the top eco-friendly alternatives to common household items.

11. Soy Wax Aromatherapy Candle

I love these soy wax aromatherapy candles. Soy is biodegradable and eco-friendly, and the company uses essential oils for a natural and light fragrance.

Plus, when you’re done burning the candle, you can reuse the glass container as a drinking glass, to hold trinkets, and more.

12. Organic Coconut Bowls

Organic Coconut Bowls

These organic coconut bowls are made with real coconuts that are cleaned, sanded, and polished with organic coconut oil. Since they’re natural, they each have a unique color, size, and shape.

They’re ideal for salads, ice cream, cereal, or stir-fry. Plus, with this set, you also get two natural wood spoons.

13. Bamboo Toothbrush

Bamboo Toothbrush

Bamboo toothbrushes are a natural way to keep your teeth clean. I prefer this brand of bamboo toothbrushes because they come in cardboard boxes, so you don’t have any plastic at all.

They’re made from sustainably harvested bamboo, biodegradable, and free of chemicals, BPA, and dyes. Since you have to replace them every few months like traditional toothbrushes, they make nice eco-friendly gifts.

There are different types of bamboo toothbrushes available, so don’t forget to check out our post on the best bamboo toothbrushes to find one that will work for everyone on your gift list.

15. Bamboo Charcoal Air Purifying Bag

Charcoal Air Purifying Bag

We all want our homes to smell good, but spraying chemicals to cover up odors is only harming the air we breathe. Instead, these bamboo charcoal air purifying bags naturally eliminate odors.

This set is great because you get five bags that are an ideal size to place in your car, closet, bathroom, or gym bag.
