The Best Sustainable Holiday Gift Guide 2022
Gifts for Women
Countdown the days to the festivities in cozy, comfortable leggings by Feel Fit, a gym and leisurewear brand using recycled cotton and ECONYL® regenerated nylon. Soft to the touch with side pockets and mesh detailing, the brand’s latest “Inspire” leggings toasts a more responsible lifestyle to celebrate the season.
For the thrill seekers, the authentically Italian brand Hey Sport designs high-performance outerwear built for the wintery slopes. Made with carefully-engineered fabrics and responsible manufacturing processes, the “Steamboat Shell” jacket is equipped with waterproof, ergonomic, and heat-taped seam features – a gift that has adventure written all over it.
Nothing says holiday cheer like the “Valentina” one-piece from Seawild, a swim and beachwear brand with day-to-night pieces. The brand’s collections empower women to feel confident in sculpting fabric that enhances every body shape. Valentina boasts a “V” neckline with shimmering gold and silver lining, which can also be worn as a trendy, seasonless bodysuit. Pair the outfit with aoife®’s versatile “Gallery Duffel Bag” to turn heads at any holiday party.
Gifts for Men
For the “man of style,” lavish him with the “Triton Suit Jacket”, a classic, slim-cut fit with relaxed shoulder features. Created by State of Matter, a men’s fashion brand designing with recycled materials, this jacket offers comfort and class – minus the hefty environmental footprint.
If he loves being out in nature, give him something he’ll put to good use: a durable and eco-friendly “Glare Vest Hood”. This windproof puffer will protect him from the elements, while ensuring breathability through soft fabrics. Designed by Ukuthula, a Spanish brand based in Pamplona, Navarra, the apparel company creates multifunctional and timeless activewear with high-quality, eco-conscious materials.
No man’s wardrobe is complete without a trendy pair of sunglasses, like the ones from Karün eyewear. Available in polarized and non-polarized lenses, the “Coipo” sunglasses are the finishing touch to any laidback, relaxed everyday outfit. Karün, meaning “to be nature” in the Mapuche language, uses blockchain technology to trace products from discarded materials to ready-to-wear frames.
Gifts for Children
Escaping the winter chills to celebrate the festivities with the (whole) family? Pack along eco-thoughtful, warm-weather gifts for the kids to enjoy. Starting with this super soft, water-resistant “NoRash Guard” from NoNetz. The suit offers UPF 50+ protection and a skin-safe zipper for all day fun in the sun. Throw in a pair of scratch-resistant, unbreakable “SooNice Sunnies” – a responsibly-made eyewear brand developed exclusively for children – to make the ultimate tropical December getaway.
