Why Green Holiday Gifts for Parents?
There are so many options for gifts, between online shopping and shopping at brick and mortar stores. It can be daunting to find the best gifts for everyone on your list, especially if you are trying to be a more conscientious gifter. To help you through the process, we created a list of products that we think you'll love for your holiday gift giving.
They match our mission to create sustainable, high-quality products for the parents with little ones in your life. Buying well-made and eco-friendly products ensure that they will be used to its fullest potential and when your loved ones are done with the product, it will do minimal damage to our environment. To follow up on our latest blog on how to be a master gift gifter, here are our recommendations for the best green holiday gifts for parents and why we love them!
1. Green Toys
Why we love them: They share a mission of being an eco-friendly and sustainable company. We particularly like the Organic Play Dough!
Why we love them: The high chairs offer comfortable seating that grows with your baby, ensuring proper ergonomics at every age.
3. Nest Designs
Why we love them: Nest Designs are made from a blend of cotton and bamboo. Bamboo uses less water to grow than other materials and is completely decomposable (and good for soil) when it’s time for new clothes.
4. Monti Kids
Why we love them: Monti Kids is a subscription-based at-home Montessori program designed and safety tested for birth to age 3. Programs are proven by 100+ years of use in classrooms worldwide.
Why we love us: A little self-promotion never hurt anybody! But truthfully, Miniware is a great gift for parents with little ones. Sustainably sourced, modern design, and highly functional for teething tots to independent eaters, our dishware will last for many meals to come.
For ages 4 months to 1 year, we recommend starting with a First Bites Set, which comes with 1 Cereal Bowl with suction and 1 soft Teething Spoon. These were made to be easy to hold with little hands and with the suction cup, the bowl stays in place, making it easier for tots to guide food onto their spoon. They'll learn how to feed themselves in no time! It's an exciting milestone for a parent.
For ages 1 year and above, we recommend the Eating Master Set + Sandwich Plate Smart Divider. The Eating Master Set comes with a variety of our Miniware dishware so that no matter what snack is on the table, parents have the right dish to fit their needs. Adding the Sandwich Plate Smart Divider is a great bonus gift for parents of picky eaters. It can be added or removed from the Sandwich Plate and separates each snack into its own area.
We hope this list helps you find the best green holiday gifts for parents to open up during the holiday celebrations. There are so many more brands that want to make an ecological difference, but these are some of our favorites.
