Last year, I created my first-ever Christmas Gift Guide, and I’m bringing it back for 2022!

With eco-friendly, budget-friendly and sustainable options, there’s something for everyone right here, in one list. Enjoy!

This site is GREAT! They provide amazing gift options for every personality type and every budget. They also provide local options and various occasions to shop for (great for year-round!)

Check them out here.


All Things Being Eco

This site offers gifts for under $10 and has wonderful options for men, women and kids. They also offer gift cards and zero-waste gifts.

Canadian-based, it’s definitely an option to consider if you want to support Canadian businesses.

Find them here.



This website, via subscription, sends the recipient weekly questions (probably many you’ve not thought to ask!) to answer via email. Photos can be included with email responses, too. At the end of the year, they’ll print a book and mail it to the recipient, full of the recorded stories and photos.

This is a perfect idea for parents and grandparents, and at $139 CAD, it’s truly the gift that keeps on giving!

Check it out here.



Looking to cut back on your gift-giving budget? Elfster is the place to go.

Create a gift exchange (Secret Santa-style) and the support elves will match you up with your Secret Santa, anywhere in the world, with loads of online gift options and you get to set a dollar limit, too.

Simply sign up and supply the names and email addresses of those participating, and they do the rest. When your friends sign up, they can create a wish list so you have an idea of what they’d like to receive.

Locally-Sourced Fair Trade Coffee

This is the perfect gift idea for the coffee lovers in your life, and it’s not hard to find. Simply Google “sustainable coffee” along with your city/province and there should be some results that come up.


Themed Gift Boxes

Similar to gift baskets, but boxes are much cheaper! You could even use mugs, mason jars or any cute containers from the dollar store.

There are so many ideas for this one, here are some examples of boxes you could put together:

  • Example 1 – pizza gift card, a packet of microwave popcorn, a small game or Netflix gift card for a movie night in
  • Example 2 – a collection of your favourite recipes (think 5 or 6), some measuring spoons and maybe a specialty item from one of your recipes that may be hard to find
  • Example 3 – anything to do with pampering – nail polish, slippers, lotion, face mask
  • Example 4 – homemade cookie mix with baking instructions and packages of individual hot chocolate mix

The possibilities are truly endless and so easy to personalize. Add a little card with a note and you’ll warm someone’s heart.

This company offers hand-crafted leather goods in an effort to reduce poverty, by paying their artisans a healthy living wage.
