I always remember as a kid that my favourite gifts to open on Christmas morning were the ones out of my stocking. I just loved the extra little things that I pulled out. Sometimes it can be difficult to fill the stockings with meaningful gifts, which is why we have put together some great eco-friendly stocking stuffers that are great for your kids, and the environment.
1. Grow Mushrooms Kit
Why not give the gift that keeps on growing with this Grow your Own Mushroom Kit from Back to the Roots. Kids can watch gourmet oyster mushrooms grow right out of the box that can be eaten in just 10 days. Take this opportunity to get them helping in the kitchen and teach them how to make healthy meals that come straight from the garden. Simply water them twice a day with the included mister, and voila!
2. Natural Art Products
Kids love to be creative, and make art, and sometimes that creativity ends up all over their face. With the art supplies from Wee Can Too you don’t have to worry if some of that paint/chalk/crayon ends up in their mouth, because the products are all natural and organic, made from fruits and veggies! Their products are made with out chemicals, preservatives, or colour additives so you can ensure that your little one can be safe while having fun.
3. DIY Terrarium Kit
Add a little nature to your home with Twig’s Do-it-yourself terrariums. The kits contain everything you need to create the little green world, including all the elements, a beautiful recycled glass container, and a little male, or female figurine to live in your green world.
4. Oval Tree Swing
Who can forget the endless hours spent outside with the neighbourhood kids taking turns on the local tree swing. Reintroduce this classic feeling to your kids with The Original Oval Tree Swing. This swing is exactly what it says it is, an old fashioned rope swing. The nice thing is that it is made from 100% reclaimed wood allowing it to blend in with its natural surroundings and compliment your landscaping.
5. Solar Light
The LuminAID solar light is the perfect gift for a little adventurer. This safe, sustainable and ultra-portable light provides up to 15 hours of LED light and can easily be recharged in the sun, ideal for recreational use outdoors, or in the home as an extra light.
