5 Eco Stocking Stuffers You Won’t Need a Gift Receipt For

For holiday gifts small enough to be tucked into a stocking, we’ve got more than a few ideas. From jewelry to skincare to accessories, all of these eco stocking stuffers are perfect for keeping sustainability at the forefront of your holiday season.


1. Handmade, Upcycled Earrings

These beautiful earrings come from Bead & Reel, a company that believes that fashion and ethics aren’t mutually exclusive. The store offers eco-friendly, cruelty-free items including clothing, jewelry, and accessories. The Muna earrings are handmade from upcycled bullet casings from the Ethiopian/Eritrean war made by a women’s cooperative employing women overcoming complications from female genital mutilation, rape, and HIV/AIDs.

2. Hand-Sewed Headband

Another idea for eco stocking stuffers from Bead & Reel is this Amelia Headband, hand-sewn by artisans in Costa Rica. Available in a number of different color patterns, we love this idea for sisters, cousins, or anyone else you want to buy similar yet individual gifts for.


3. Intense Hair Care

Who doesn’t need a bit of moisture now that winter has set in? This cocoa butter hair mask is made with 100 percent vegetarian ingredients like argan oil and cocoa butter for intense restoration to dry, damaged hair.

4. Goes-Anywhere Travel Scarf

MATTER is the perfect place for gifts for your eco-conscious travel buddies. A business focused on affordable luxury and thoughtful design, MATTER sells items that foster designer-artisan collaborations and have a firm focus on sustainability and industry change. With that in mind, we love this hand-printed cotton silk scarf. It’s large enough to double as a turban, sling bag, wall hanging, or sarong, and the bold and beautiful Philippines print comes from Anya Lim of ANTHILL Fabric Gallery, inspired by the Sunshine Nation.

5. Yummy Body Scrub

This cinnamon vanilla brown sugar polish from Epicuren is the ultimate gift for any friend who could use a home spa day (and who couldn’t?). This skincare line uses all-natural ingredients and is made with environmental awareness in mind. The scrub, made with brown sugar and honey, is a natural humectant and smells positively dreamy.
