I have a confession to make, I am ridiculously bad at all things wedding related. I think there is a lot of unnecessary wastage when it comes to getting married and if I could do it again, I’d think about having a more Eco-friendly wedding.
Now, I don’t have a Delorean (google Back to the Future if you don’t get that reference), so am a bit restricted to go back in time. However, where I can make a difference is buying Eco Friendly Wedding gifts for people. EcoFriendly and low waste weddings are very popular with people as the concern for climate change increases. And I believe that any gift given should reflect the views and personality of the people getting married.
This post is all about Eco – Friendly Wedding gifts to give suggestions on what to buy when attending a low waste wedding/eco-friendly wedding.
1. Hand-made Pottery bowl
An eco Friendly Hand made bowl is a gorgeous gift to give someone on their wedding. Think rustic and stylish gift that you can buy in an assortment of designs and colours to suit the taste of people getting married. I found this one on Etsy and it is so pretty. **
2. Eco Spa
What better way to treat a married couple to their very own Eco-Spa treat. Choose a Spa that has Eco friendly feature like the Herb House Spa at Lime Wood hotel. This Spa has holistic treatments that use organic brands only and the restaurant serves seasonal sustainable dishes also. What a treat this would be for the newly-weds and you would be in contention for giving the best eco friendly wedding gift ever. I know I would love this.
3. Storage Baskets
Hand-made, unique and a great little present. Buy the newly-weds a pretty, practical and eco-friendly wedding gift like these Lola & Mawu Hand woven baskets. These are made by a female weaving co-operative in Bolgatanga, Northern Ghana. They are vegan and one of a kind.
4. Copper Penta Terrarium
The Urban Botanist have some sustainable and personalised terrariums. These make amazing Eco-Friendly Wedding Gifts. The terrariums are super stylish and sleek and bring the outside indoors. Perfect present to give instead of flowers and something that an Eco-Friendly couple will cherish.
5. Bamboo dinner wear set
Another idea for a nice little Eco-Friendly gift for a newly-wed couple would be a Dinner set. This one from Wearth.com is pretty and practical.
6. Organic bedding
Luxurious and organic bed sheets. An example of some Super organic bedding is from Wearth. This set is made from 100% GOTS and Soil Association certified organic cotton which is pesticide and toxic chemical-free. Brilliant gift for newly weds.
7. Recycled coasters
Looking for cool and contemporary Eco-friendly Wedding gift ideas? Get these handmade recycled plastic coasters and the newly-weds will think of you every time they have a cuppa. Recycled coasters make an amazing little gift and can be bought in a range of designs. Happy shopping. **
