5 sustainable wedding gifts for conscious couples

May 28, 2023

If you want to give a wedding gift that will mean more than just ticking something off of a list, then these 5 sustainable wedding gifts for conscious couples will give you some great inspiration. Most couples have been living together for a decent amount of time before getting married, so the traditional homewares are not really that desirable for the modern couple. Here is some inspiration for unique ideas for planet friendly lovers, or if you want to inspire sustainability for their new future together…

 

1. Zero Waste Starter Kit

Help the couple kickstart their journey towards a zero-waste lifestyle by gifting them a zero waste starter kit. This can include reusable grocery bags, stainless steel water bottles, bamboo utensils, beeswax wraps, and reusable produce bags. It’s a practical and eco-friendly gift that encourages sustainable habits. This is a great gift if you are a sustainability warrior and want to help the couple get started on their sustainability journey.

 

2. Professionally Restyled Furniture

If you are looking for a showstopper gift for the eco-conscious couple then why not look to invest in a piece of professionally restyled furniture? There are some beautiful options from the likes of Andi Gregg Art that specialise in painted bird furniture and wildlife designs, or something more retro and art deco inspired from a specialist interior transformation designer like Liz Clarkson. Although these are a much bigger investment you could look to pool your funds with other guests to gift a truly iconic and sustainable statement that will last forever.

 

3. Organic and Fair Trade Gift Basket

Curate a gift basket filled with organic and fair trade products. Include items such as organic coffee or tea, fair trade chocolates, natural skincare products, and sustainable candles. This gift promotes ethical consumption while pampering the couple with luxurious, environmentally friendly treats. This could be a wonderful gift to have arrive once the couple return home from honeymoon as they start married life together

 

4. Indoor Herb Garden Kit

A beautiful gift that has multiple meanings could be an indoor herb garden kit. Inspire the couple to grow their own fresh herbs at home. Giving the gift of plants is symbolic of growth in marriage, and by giving them edible plants they have something that is useful too. These kits typically include everything needed to start a small herb garden, such as pots, seeds, soil, and instructions. Not only does it provide a sustainable source of herbs, but it also adds greenery and freshness to their living space too.

 

5. Donation to a Sustainable Cause

Instead of a physical gift, consider making a donation on behalf of the couple to a sustainable cause or environmental organisation they support. It could be a donation to a reforestation project, an animal conservation program, or a local community garden initiative. This gift not only aligns with their values but also contributes to a greater environmental impact.
