It’s always fun to spoil our loved ones, but consumption and overconsumption during major holidays, such as Christmas, often causes pollution due to transportation and the way articles and products are manufactured.
But can you pamper the people you love while reducing your ecological footprint? The answer is yes! In fact, several options are available to you.
In Quebec, several markets are held throughout the year, including Christmas markets. These events allow you to find a host of arts and crafts or local products so you can find your Christmas gifts from Quebec designers. You can then introduce your loved ones to local products while promoting the local economy.
These are not yet very widespread on the market, but environmentally responsible toys deserve to be known. They are often made from recycled wood, organic cotton or natural fibres and do not contain plastic or require batteries. However, they are no less fun! It is possible to find these toys in small pop-up markets, specialized shops or online. Being made in Quebec, these toys are a great way to help save the environment while making young and old alike happy!
Search through your boxes and find forgotten treasures! Why not have a photo of a beautiful evening or a memorable event framed? This small gesture is sure to touch your loved ones. Can’t decide on the perfect photo to give as a gift? Opt for a photo shoot with your loved ones! Guaranteed fun and laughter.
It’s no secret, life goes by quickly. With routine and work, we sometimes run out of time for our family and friends. The solution? Give the gift of time! How? By organizing an outdoor activity or simply planning an afternoon at home to cook or play games with your loved ones, you’re sure to create beautiful memories. It is also possible to give activities such as show tickets, course fees or even a massage session.
Give homemade treats. Whether it’s jars of jam, salsa or even caramel, cream sugar, muffins, cookies or chocolates, you will make your loved ones happy! If one of your loved ones is particularly busy, cook meals that can be frozen and that can help out when the time comes!
Encourage your loved ones to move toward zero waste by giving them washable bags for snacks, a cup to carry their coffee or tea, a water bottle or a reusable straw.
Obviously, these ideas are only a small part of all the eco-friendly possibilities available to you. One thing is certain, it is entirely possible to give original gifts while being environmentally friendly.
