While there is something that will always be exciting about big gifts (who doesn’t love unwrapping a big box?), we’re here to say that small, sustainable gifts can be just as amazing! Perfect for friends, family, co-workers, or anyone else you want to surprise this holiday season, stocking stuffers can mean just about anything. This year, say “no thanks” to wasteful single-use stocking stuffers, and opt instead for quality gifts in small packages. Check out some of our favorite sustainable stocking stuffers below!
These headphones are physically small, but will be a total game-changer for whoever is at the receiving end of this gift! With a noise-cancelling design, this little device will have you jammin’ out to your favorite tunes all day long. Wrap them up for any music-loving person in your life!
Suitable for any mood, this Badger Aromatherapy travel kit will come in handy for anyone looking to enjoy some calming scents, or a mid-day destressor. Everyone appreciates an excuse to take a deep breath! With these portable roll-on aromatherapies, a deep breath comes with one of five fresh scents too.
Coming in all different colors, lengths and sizes, Maggie’s Organic socks are the comfiest treat for anyone who’s spending time on their feet. These Organic Cotton Tie-Dye Classic Crew Socks are one of many options that add some color and fun to any outfit! And in lieu of slippers, these socks are perfect for lounging around in alllll day!
Anyone with long hair knows the struggle of always being in need of a hair tie. Something about how small they are makes them so easy to lose! And when so many of them are made from wasteful products, that makes for a lot of hair elastics ending up in landfills…over 20,000 pounds daily according to Kooshoo! Luckily, KOOSHOO is changing the hair tie game with their biodegradable (and adorable) hair scrunchies that make for a perfect balance of style and sustainability!
It’s 2020, which means you can never have enough reusable face masks. United By Blue has created masks that are the perfect balance of comfort, fashion and practicality. They’re easy to throw into any little bag and give to someone for a gift they will definitely get good use out of!
Any gift that is stress reducing and relaxing is a good gift in our books! Well Kept Bath Soaking Salts are the perfect little gift for someone you care about. Or double up and buy some for yourself too! They’re packaged in a recyclable glass tube with a cork top, and are made with Himalayan sea salt, rose petals, and other natural ingredients that are great for your skin.

Handmade from natural, toxin-free ingredients, this face mask smoothes and brightens your complexion with ease.
Plastic straws may be wasteful, but that doesn’t mean we need to do away with straws completely!

They’re reusable, dishwasher safe, and durable for years of use.
For the younger crowd, it is always fun to go back to the basics. The Wee Gallery Forest Friends Nesting Dolls are hand-painted and made from hand-carved Linden wood, and the perfect stocking stuffer that features multiple toys and various new friends to play with!
