Dental Lace Holiday Shopping List. Are you wondering what you should purchase for your loved ones for Christmas? We have created a list of some of our favorite products and suggestions for your holiday shopping.
#1 Dental Lace: Dental Lace is a great stocking stuffer, decoration on the top of a gift box or as part of a gift basket.
#2 Loo Hop Dryer Ball: we love LooHoo wool dryer balls. The wool balls help reduce drying time, reduce static and help your family stay toxic free (no nasty chemicals that are in most dryer sheets).
#3 Stasher Bags: one of the hardest single use plastic products to reduce in the kitchen is plastic bags. Stasher bags are great because they can hold wet or dry food and they are even designed to use in the freezer!
#4 Metal reusable straws: you can find these at most health food stores. They come in a variety of thickness, lengths and now colors. One of her biggest culprits for single use plastic waste is straws. You can reduce plastic waste on the go by bringing a metal straw. This is another great stocking stuffer!
#5 Beeswax reusable wraps (or a vegan version): beeswax wraps are a great alternative to plastic wrap, plastic bags and sometimes tin foil.
#6 Rope Co Handmade lobster rope products (mats and baskets): these are durable and beautiful hand woven products made from lobster rope. The durable rope creates a perfect surface to get extra dirt or snow off our shoes. Theropeco.com
#7 Sea Bags: These beautiful bags are made from recycled sail boat sales. They strive to use Maine, New England and USA materials. The company saves material from landfill and creates beautiful functional bags. I have owned one for 5 years and I still love it. Seabags.com
#8 zero waste books: We love many different types of books but we suggest two to help your journey into a low waste lifestyle.
-Plastic Free: How I kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too by Beth Terry
-Zero Waste Home: The Ultimate Guide to Simplifying Your Life by Reducing Your Waste by Bea Johnson.
# 9 Spa Day: I love giving a spa day as a gift. Sometimes experiences are better than any physical gift. Our favorite spa here in Maine is Soakology foot sanctuary and tea house. The combination of infused foot soaks in large copper basins and warm tea is just what your loved one needs on a cold winter day.
#10 Home Cooking: Remember home cooked goods do not have to be cookies or baked goods. A favorite casserole or soup can be a great gift.
The most important tip for gift giving is give from the heart. Low waste is just a bonus.
