So…. I’m supposed to be studying for finals, but I’m having much more fun holiday shopping! I’m making an extra effort to shop from small and sustainable brands this year, and I always find the best handmade, eco-friendly gifts on Etsy.
Etsy is my always favorite place to look for cute stocking stuffers, and I’ve also found some beautiful eco-friendly cards and plastic free gift wrap on the site.
Here is a roundup of my favorite eco-friendly gifts on Etsy for this year, all under $100. I hope this guide helps you find the perfect gift for everyone on your list! Check out all my other gift guides for even more ideas.
My Picks for Eco-Friendly Gifts on Etsy
Linen Pinafore Apron
When I saw this linen apron, I instantly fell in love with it. I just love the relaxed homey style! With the material being 100% linen and the unisex style, this is the perfect gift for anyone who loves to spend time in the kitchen, art studio, or garden.
This linen apron also comes in so many beautiful colors. Not only is the apron beautifully made and eco-friendly, it’s a super unique gift for anyone on your list.
Zero Waste Gift Box
This beautiful Zero Waste Starter Kit Gift Box is always on the top of my list for all of my girlfriends who are interested in living more sustainably. It is a great option that comes with everything you need to start an eco-friendly lifestyle! Reusable produce bags, beeswax wraps… everything you can think of!
Organic Honey Hair Mask
A fair warning- this is one of those gifts that you order one for them… and one for you. Trust me!
I am totally in love with this Organic Hair Mask. No matter what time of year it is, I feel like my hair always needs a little TLC and this set always provides.
I’ve tried both the honey mask and the avocado mask and loved both.
I also love the eco-friendly packaging. Each hair mask comes in a glass jar with a metal lid and is stored inside a reusable linen/hemp drawstring bag.
Perfect gift for anyone with hair!! 😉
Eco Friendly Notebook
One of the best gift finds for guys on Etsy, in my opinion, is this beautiful tree free notebook made from corn husk. I’m a big fan of tree free journals – alternative materials like stone and corn husk help reduce deforestation, water use, and carbon emissions. This corn husk notebook is a great purchase for anyone on your list this holiday season, especially the men in our lives who can be so hard to shop for.
Vegan Zero Waste Makeup Palette
You know that sound that someone makes when they open a gift that they really cannot believe that you found for them? The kind that is just so unbelievably perfect that they are in shock? I call that the ‘happy gasp’. I promise you this- this vegan makeup palette from Clean Faced Cosmetics will provide a ‘happy gasp’ from anyone you choose to give it to.
This makeup palette isn’t only vegan, its zero waste and completely customizable. That means that you get to pick out your 4 favorite items that the business offers to create a makeup look that is completely unique.

Custom Vegan Leather Journal
These gorgeous custom vegan leather journals from IndigoArtisans are so unique, they are one of my favorite eco-friendly gifts on Etsy. Each high quality journal is handmade with a color, pattern, and size that is all chosen by you!
Anyone on your list that is an avid journal keeper will absolutely love this great gift. With vegan leather made from cork, one of my favorite sustainable materials, it really gives the look and feel of a leather journal, but a more eco friendly alternative with a lower ecological footprint.

Zero Waste Plant-Based Kitchen Cleaning Set
This zero waste kitchen set is gorgeous, definitely one of my favorite eco-friendly gifts on Etsy!
Complete with pot brushes, soap, sustainable sponges, and reusable produce bags, this kit will make anyone excited to live a more sustainable lifestyle.
Cork Yoga Mat
As someone who loves fitness, this cork yoga mat is the type of gift I would love to receive. It is hard to find a genuinely eco friendly yoga mat that is thick and cute- but this one fits the bill! I’m always on the lookout for eco-friendly yoga accessories made from natural materials and plastic free yoga mats.
If you have a yogi on your Christmas list, then take a look at these yoga mats this Holiday season!
