Sustainable Christmas gifts would of course look great in our reusable gift box. You can buy them in stores or you can make your own. Especially now, when it is getting uncomfortable outside and you spend all the more time at home, it can be nice to get creative and thus already prepare the Christmas gifts. Some of the ideas can also be implemented super with children.
Sustainable gift with coaster for tea cup
Nachhaltige Geschenke müssen nicht immer aufwendig sein. Schön und trotzdem nützlich sind z. B. Untersetzer aus Modelliermasse. Welches Material du brauchst, um alle ins Schwärmen zu versetzen:
- self-drying organic modeling clay
- a piece of lace fabric or crochet doily
Shape the modeling clay into a ball and roll it out with a rolling pin or a heavy glass bottle. Before you have reached the desired thickness, place the tip on the mass and press it with the roller so that the pattern is transferred to the mass. You will see the result when you remove the tip. Now you can cut out the desired area and size with a knife. You can also use a cup or a bowl to help you, then they will be perfectly round or you do it freehand. You can dry the mass according to the instructions and process the rest again. After drying, you can smooth the edges with a little sandpaper, leave them natural paint or lassieren. It's up to your taste.
The sustainable DIY Christmas gift is super easy to make and is sure to please everyone.
Sustainable gifting with chic in knitwear
Knitting is no longer reserved for the wonderful grannies of this world. Especially now, when it is uncomfortable outside and no mulled wine at the Christmas market can distract from it, it is time to deal with needlework. All you need for this are:
- two knitting needles
- sustainable knitting wool
You can find numerous tutorials on the Internet in magazines or start a video call with your grandma. Self-knitted gifts keep you warm in winter and can look super stylish. Whether it's the classic embroidered socks, scarves or even a chunky cardigan, there's no limit to your imagination for sustainable knitted gifts. Once you've found your way into the theme, you can try out new patterns and, of course, change the colors every now and then. And who knows, maybe you will surprise your grandparents this year with a self-knitted gift?
