Celebrating the Holidays & Our Sustainable Stocking Stuffers Guide
Rebranded and refreshed, we are thrilled to be back online just in time for the holiday season! Plus, what a perfect time to discuss sustainability and the importance of buying your gifts from small businesses. The holiday season is notorious for being highly unsustainable. From one-time use wrapping paper, to large sale day events meant to encourage rapid consumption, it’s easy to forget about sustainable decision making and mindful choices in and around all the hustle and bustle.
While there is so much to celebrate during this time, we encourage you to take moments to slow it down and remind yourself of the importance of mindful living. When you slow it down, you’ll also realize there is so much gratitude and love within this season hidden behind the mirage of sale items and unconscious purchases.
One way to develop a positive consumption impact is to prioritize buying your gifts from small businesses. By purchasing from individuals, you are supporting your community and their families while also considering the environmental impacts of your dollars. In essence, you are celebrating community through sustainable shopping.
As part of our Oak and Fir family, we have compiled a list of gift options to support your sustainable shopping goals while helping you complete that shopping list. Whether you have just started shopping or are almost finished, here are a few stocking stuffers perfect for anyone on your nice list:
Our Oak & Fir beanie is a comfortable and stylish addition to anyone’s wardrobe. Keeping your loved ones warm during these winter months, this is a gift that will keep on giving as we move into snowy months ahead.
Surprise your loved one with a solution to the dry lips that accompany this weather. Our Bella Bee lip balm, available in various flavours, is well loved and small enough to be a final addition to your loved one’s stockings!
Give your loved ones the gift of choice this holiday season and throw in an Oak & Fir gift card worth $20, $50 or $100. They’ll be able to choose from a variety of products such as clothing, home goods, and much more!
Finally, they’ll need a tote bag to carry all their goodies. This gift is also great for introducing sustainable practices to your loved ones as you can encourage them to use this gift in their routine; for example, let them know this would be great to bring to a grocery store so they won’t need to take home a plastic bag.
We know these gifts will be a great addition to your loved one’s stockings or as any finishing touches on your Christmas list! Lastly, since we are in the season of gratitude, we’d like to say that our team at Oak & Fir is beyond grateful for your support and community throughout our existence and during our rebranding. We wish you all a fantastic holiday season and hope these stocking stuffers, or any of our other products, bring a smile to your loved one's faces.
