21 Sustainable Holiday Gifts for Everyone on Your List | 2021 Holiday Gift Guide

We love sharing our gift ideas with you all, we love the holidays, and we love keeping Mama Earth happy. So, this gift guide was one of our favorites yet. We searched far and wide for eco-friendly, woman-owned, minority-owned, and small businesses to feature in our 2021 sustainable holiday gift guide. Each item is something we have either used ourselves or gifted to a loved one, so you can be sure these gifts will knock their proverbial recycled-wool socks off.  

And we would be remiss if we didn’t mention our favorite way to personalize (and sustainibalize—because that’s totally a word...) our gifts during the holidays. ALL of these gifts are ready for us to #putatokkionit. Our latest launch, The Tokki Bow-Card, combines a beautiful bow (made from recycled water bottles!) with a unique QR code tag. Just scan the QR code, upload a photo/video message, then clip it to ANY gift for immediately memorable gifting. Read on, and we’ll show you some of our favorite ways to incorporate The Tokki into your holiday gifts!


Let’s Get Cozy  

Gifts for The Home

Sweet Succulent from The Sill

Plantify your holiday season! We love giving plants as gifts—whether it’s a luxe monstera or an easy-to-care-for succulent. The Sill has an awesome user-friendly shopping experience and a wide selection of beautiful plants & decor accessories. They are also woman-owned and source sustainably, so you can rest easy knowing your plant has good roots.  

Adding a Tokki Bow-Card makes this simple succulent a memorable gift! Our white bow-card looks stunning against the bright green. Get yours now so you can personlize any and all of your holiday gifts.  

Organic Cotton Sheet Set from Looma

Slipping into a cozy bed is one of life’s simple pleasures. Give the gift of high-quality, organic cotton sheets from Looma this year. The high thread count and lifetime warranty make this a staple gift for anyone on your list. Everyone loves nice sheets!  

Ornate Candle Holder from Glassybaby

If you walk into a home in Seattle, there is a good chance you’ll see Glassybaby’s on display. Their hand-blown glass is a classy gift to give their tea-lights a new home. Woman-owned, local, and beautiful—what more can you ask for?   

Oh, that’s right. A Tokki Bow-Card! Personalize your Glassybaby with a digital card worth remembering.  

Swedish Dish Cloths from Ten & Co.

These dish cloths are the real deal! They work like the best kitchen dish cloth you have ever used, AND they’re compostable. The company is run by women that work extra-hard to make sure you have a easy, eco-friendly shopping experience.  

Reusable Storage Bags from Stasher

We have been using these better-than-plastic (way better) silicone storage bags for years now! Stasher is an awesome company with thought & care put into their product designs. They have tons of different colors so you can customize your kitchen accessories for whoever is on your list.

Looking Good  

Gifts for The Fashionista 

Sustainably Made Necklace & Earrings from Boma Jewelry

If you’re following us on Instagram (and if you’re not, you really should 😉) you have probably heard of Seattle-based Boma Jewelry already. They have some of the most beautiful jewelry designs that are all sustainably sourced. They’re also woman-owned and B-corp certified..... so yeah, this is where you should be buying your jewelry!  

Our giveaway with this stylish brand wrapped up last week and we can’t wait to do more giveaways with local brands! We were also invited to their 40th birthday party at a small pop-up shop in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle. You can come hang out with us on October 30th, 2021 for cocktails and holiday shopping. Think upscale jewelry store + eco-friendly gift shop. It’s gonna be FUN!   

Recycled Wool Socks from Sleet & Soul

Socks don’t have to be boring! Sleet & Soul makes a wide variety of chic prints and fun colors to amp up your gifee’s sock collection. And they’re made from recycled wool.  

Boring gifts are a LOT less boring with cool tech attached. Clip the Tokki Bow-Card to a pair of socks and you have yourself an old favorite made new.

Gifts for Beauty & Self-Care 

Eco-Friendly Shaving Set from Eco Collective

This might be a gift for your eco-conscious friend, or you can encourage someone new to sustainability toward this snazzy new safety razor. This set comes with everything you need to start shaving without waste. Safety razors get you the closest shave possible and look good while doing it.   

Eco-collective is a fan-favorite of ours. They carry several of the products we have mentioned in this blog post, ship plastic-free, and are woman-owned!  

Luxurious Clay Face Mask from Package Free Shop

Give them a self-care moment. Another eco-minded company we love is Package Free Shop. They have an awesome selection of products that are kind to the planet. There are several different clay face masks for different skin types that make the perfect gift for that human who needs some me-time.   


Gifts for the Foodie  

Hand-Made Salted Caramels from Fran’s 

frans chocolate and tokki

We give these as gifts ALL THE TIME! Fran’s is next-level chocolate. If we’re being real, the number of times we order this for gifting then eat half of them in bed... maybe we shouldn’t get that real. Anyway, get these salted caramels for your loved ones. They will thank you!  

Reusable Rose Gold Tumbler from S’well Fair Trade Coffee from Blk & Bold

s'well tumbler and tokki

S’well products are a staple at the Tokki office. They really do keep your drinks hot & cold, plus they’re cute. This Rose Gold Tumbler pairs perfectly with coffee from Blk & Bold—a black-owned, fair trade coffee roaster with delicious blends.  

Natural Wine from Molly’s Bottle Shop

Molly’s Bottle Shop is an adorably small storefront in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, with an easy online shopping experience. Many of their wines are “natural”, meaning the grapes aren’t touched by synthetic fertilizers or chemicals. They are delicious and have some beautiful packaging (the real reason we buy nice wine... right?).  

The Tokki is an easy addition to your wine bottles that makes your gift special instantly. We use a hair tie to slip around the bottle, then easily clip our bow-card on. Cheers!  

Copper Martini Set from Sertodo Copper

Spice up their bar cart with this beautiful, sustainably sourced copper martini set. Copper is the ideal material to use for mixing up cocktails and keeps your drinks ice cold. Moscow mules anybody? 🤔
