Online shopping can be an excellent solution especially nowadays. In this article, I want to show you some sustainable gift ideas that we can find online, in particular on Etsy, to give something cute, handmade, and support small brands at the same time.

Sustainable gift ideas: Shops on Etsy
If you are looking for handmade objects and you want to support small businesses, Etsy is definitely the solution.
For those who do not know it, Etsy is a platform that gives the possibility to anyone to open their own online store and sell their creations. You will find unique objects and it is worth taking a look at them. Let’s see some sustainable gift ideas on Etsy!
Handmade soap on Etsy
I love handmade soap! In my blog, I wrote a lot about them and that’s why the first gift idea is exactly them: natural handmade soaps. On Etsy, you can find different types but my favorites are undoubtedly natural soaps without packaging. The Etsy stores that I recommend are:
Tildas Tribe (UK). Soaps made with only 5 ingredients, including goat’s milk produced by a small herd of goats from a small Anglo-Nubian family. Link here.
Yours Truly Bath Co (USA). Jaden makes not only soap bars but also bath bombs, body scrub, and much more. Everything rigorously handmade. Link here.
Among the most appreciated Christmas gifts, certainly include clothing. To avoid fast fashion, (fashionable clothing with low-cost mass production), on Etsy we can find clothes with sustainable materials handcrafted in small workshops. Some are:
LINEN ID (Lithuania) 100% linen from 3 local producers, OEKO TEX certified.
DuskShop (Lithuania) 85% Organic cotton and 15% recycled polyester, GOTS, and PETA Vegan approved embroidered T-shirts.
Wild Bee Clothing (UK) organic cotton, Fair Wear, PETA & vegan approved clothing. Partner with Just One Tree – every purchase will fund the planting of one new tree.
Original sustainable items
But for those who want original and unconventional ideas, read on.
This gift idea is not part of the handmade gift options, but it is a little cuddle for ourselves. Yes, this is a bonus for us! Giving yourself a gift is also a way to love yourself! A gift that I would love to give myself is a spa set, to relax perhaps sipping good red wine (or tea) and listening to good music. Some options are:
Koko and Clay (Germany). Clay Face Mask | Vegan Cosmetics Face Oil. Clay facial mask set and nourishing oil to restore the right balance and tone to the skin. Link here.
Concreate Decor (NY, USA). Bath & Beauty box | Spa gift set. A candle, a lip balm, a body oil, and even a bar of soap, and much more in this handmade kit. Link here.
