Find natural gift ideas for everyone on your list! There are more natural and eco-friendly gift choices available than ever and it can be tough to know where to start. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered! My list of the top natural gift ideas is sure to have something for everyone on your list this year.

I’ve specifically curated this list for the eco-conscious, natural living and healthy lifestyle enthusiasts. Many of these gifts I have received or given myself, while others are on my personal wish list for this year (hint, hint, hubby!).

 My favorite gifts usually fall in a couple of gift-giving categories. The all natural gifts on this list meet this criteria, and you can use these categories to brainstorm other natural gift ideas as well!

I personally love consumable gifts because they are often times items I wouldn’t buy for myself but I love to try out new products. I also love consumable gifts because once I use up the gift, it’s gone. I don’t have something else to find a place for in my home.

My favorite consumable gifts are essential oils, natural beauty gifts and tea gift sets.


I love experience gifts because they are usually something that I want but will not spend the time or money to do myself. And isn’t that exactly what a great gift is – something the other person wants but will probably not buy for themselves?

Online courses, housecleaning service and the always welcome massage gift certificate are all favorite experience gifts.


Upgrade gifts are some of my favorite gifts ever!  Over the years I’ve requested lots of ‘upgrade’ gifts, mostly of overused kitchen or household items I had the cheap version of. These are items I use frequently and would love to have a higher quality version of, but I will likely not give myself an ‘upgrade.’

Do the upgrading for your recipient! This category works best for someone you know well, like a spouse, parent or close friend.


I have a soft spot for handmade gifts. I spent several years making and selling my own soap and body products and I met LOTS of wonderful makers along the way. I love that when you give a handmade gift you are not only giving something truly unique, but you are also supporting a local maker in the process.

You’ll find several handmade natural gift ideas on this list, and lots more (that you don’t have to make) on my Handmade Gift Ideas Guide.


Healthy lifestyle gifts are great for the natural minded person in your life because there is probably at least one area of their life they are working on healthifying (I made that word up, feel free to use it ;). The common theme with all of these gifts is that they improve quality of life and/or facilitate learning about healthy living.

Last But certainly not least is gifts you can make yourself. There are endless possibilities in this category, so I’ll just give you a few of my favorites that are easy enough for anyone to do.

Try my hot chocolate lotion bars or cuticle oil with essential oils for stocking stuffers everyone will rave about.
