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!
CONSUMABLE GIFT IDEAS
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.
EXPERIENCE GIFT IDEAS
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.
GIVE AN ‘UPGRADE’ GIFT
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.
HANDMADE NATURAL GIFT IDEAS
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 LIVING GIFT IDEAS
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.

DIY GIFT IDEAS
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.

Natural Gift Ideas
Natural gifts for everyone on your list. The ultimate list of eco-friendly, natural and sustainable gift ideas for eco-conscious, natural minded and healthy lifestyle enthusiasts.
I've been a legit handmade soap addict for years, and love to give handcrafted soap as a gift!
These bars are made with a nourishing vegetable oil base, scented with essential oils and colored with natural botanicals. Plus, they are made by yours truly!
Everything is up to 30% off through early December, no code needed.
Skip the candles in favor of an essential oil diffuser (use it with the oil sets below). Diffuse essential oils in your home to freshen the air and boost your health. I love the natural, stone-look of these diffusers and they are from my favorite essential oil brand, Plant Therapy.
DIY Kombucha Brewing Kit
For the DIY health nut, this kit has everything you need to brew your own kombucha.
I love a project gift that is also something the recipient can enjoy for a long time! So fun!
Ultimate Essential Oil Starter Set
For an essential oil newbie, this essential oil gift set includes the top 14 essential oils :7 singles and 7 synergy blends that every essential oil user should have. Pair this with a great diffuser, and you've got a killer essential oil set anyone would be excited to receive.
Tea Gift Sets
I love me some tea, and it is one of my favorite consumable gifts to receive. I love the tea gift sets from Art of Tea because they offer high quality, loose leaf and bagged tea and lots of organic choices.
Check out the Wellness Tea Sampler, the Loose Leaf Tea Gift Set or the Classics Gift Set.
Monthly tea subscriptions are also available (and totally giftable!).
Stainless Tea Mug
Speaking of tea, this double-walled insulated stainless steel tea mug tops my list of gifts for tea lovers (AKA, yours truly).
Go ahead and pick up a high quality loose tea infuser to go with it and you've got a gift any tea lover will go ga-ga for.
Healthy Mama-to-be Gift Set
Earth Mama Organics has some of my favorite healthy products for pregnant mamas and new babies. I adore this gift set that's for the MOM instead of baby (because we all know pregnant mamas needs some TLC too!).
Glass Water Bottle with Filter
I love a good re-usable water bottle, and this one with a built-in filter tops my wish list. It's a glass bottle with a silicone sleeve, and the filter removes 99.9% of tap water contaminates. Yes please!
This brand also has a rad artist series of Nalgene water bottles with filters.
A New Kind of Hair Care
This ultra-clean set of super concentrated shampoo and conditioner is made without water, drastically reducing the amount of packaging needed. This is the first of this style of haircare products I've seen, and would make a great gift for anyone who is conscious of packaging waste or looking for eco-friendly options!
DIY Bath Bomb Making Kit
The perfect natural gift idea for the DIY-er in your life. Everything they need to make bath bombs with all natural ingredients in one giftable box. Such a fun gift!
Natural Beauty Subscription Box
I love this natural, eco-friendly and vegan beauty subscription box as an organic gift idea! Give one month or many, it's up to you.
Online Yoga Classes
Online yoga is a game-changer! With a huge selection of classes for all ability levels, anyone can do yoga at home. A yoga subscription is a great last minute natural gift, and your recipient will reap the benefits for months to come.
Jade Harmony Yoga Mat
Gift your yoga loving recipient the best yoga mat around! It is slip proof, doesn’t get little rips like the cheap mats do, and stable enough to support you even during a sweaty hot yoga session.
I've had my jade yoga mat for years and its still in great shape.
(pair this with a year of yoga classes above and talk about an amazing gift!)
Sustainable Vegan Bag
My new favorite bag is made of sustainable, ethically sourced CORK, and it is fabulous! The vegan 'leather' bag by JORD is soft and has a total natural vibe, while still feeling like a luxury purse.
I have the Emilie in light tea, a beautiful soft, earthy green shade. I adore the gold chain strap that can be carried as a cross-body or a shoulder bag.
A Bracelet that Cleans the Oceans
These bracelets from 4ocean come with a promise: for every bracelet purchased, they clean 1 pound of trash from the oceans. Plus, the bracelets themselves are made from recycled plastics (the cord) and recycled glass (the beads).
I love a gift with an earth-friendly purpose!
Lion's Mane Mushroom Grow Kit
Grow your own superfood with a Lion's Mane mushroom grow kit. The kit comes with everything you need to grow up to 2 pounds of mushrooms. Perfect for the home gardener or mushroom enthusiast in your life.

Handmade Three-legged Cat Planter
For a houseplant enthusiast, an adorable, handmade planter will always be a welcome gift!
Organic Pocket Leggings
These were on my personal wish list last year, and I still love them! Made with organic cotton, these leggings are soft and comfortable, wash well, and....POCKETS. I've made a vow (to myself) to only wear leggings with pockets from now on, and these are pretty perfect IMO.
I purchase my regular size in these, for anyone looking for sizing help 🙂
Organic Cotton Luxury Sheets
While some people might think bedding is an odd choice for a gift, I think it is a superbly giftable item. I love the softness of my organic sheets, and especially love knowing the fabric my body is spending 8 hours a night on is non-toxic and healthy. Bedding is one of those categories I don’t usually splurge on, so this is a perfect 'upgrade' gift IMO.
Instant Pot 7-in-1 Multi-Use Cooker
This is one of my favorite 'upgrade' natural gifts! The Instant Pot does everything and gets used multiple times a week in my house.
While kitchen items don't always scream 'amazing gift idea!', the Instant Pot is the exception. Every kitchen needs one, IMO, especially if you're searching for less toxic options to current kitchen tools (like a crock-pot).
Berkey Water Filter
Give the gift of clean water with a Berkey water filter. This is THE best countertop water filter available and it does a stellar job of cleaning up your household drinking water. Make sure you spring for the fluoride filters if your city still puts fluoride in the tap water. We have had our Berkey water filter for 7 years and absolutely LOVE it.
Water Kefir Grains
Water kefir is an easy to make fermented drink that is packed full of probiotics. It has a slightly bubbly texture and mildly sweet taste. Water kefir can be flavored with fruits and juices or consumed plain, and it is an awesome way to get more probiotics in your entire family.
I have made water kefir on and off for about 5 years, and I have purchased these water kefir grains 3 times and they are super high quality. Once you buy the grains, they will last for years if you take care of them (I let mine die, twice. oops). Water kefir grains do require a small amount of daily maintenance, and they will make A LOT of water kefir. So make sure you think your gift recipient would be up for a new mini-project with these.Make sure you also purchase the accessories they will need to make water kefir: a plastic strainer (no stainless!), a big glass jar, a wooden spoon and organic sugar.
Eco-Conscious Gift Set by EarthLove
EarthLove curates beautiful boxes of eco-conscious, healthy, non-toxic products for your body, home and lifestyle. It's a unique natural gift box any natural living enthusiast will love. Buy a single box or a subscription.
Green Living Subscription Box

I think subscription boxes are so fun – who doesn’t like to receive a surprise package in the mail?! The Mighty Fix box is inexpensive and geared towards natural minded moms, and makes a great natural living gift!

KidSafe Essential Oil Set
My favorite kid-safe essential oils all in one gift set. This is great natural gift for healthy living mamas because all of the oils are safe for kids and adults.
I have (and use regularly!) all of these oils in my home.
100% Pure Makeup Set
From one of the OG clean beauty brands, this is the perfect little set for the makeup lover in your life. Their products are super clean and they work. I adore their skincare products as much as their natural makeup.
Bonus: Their $10 deals are going strong, and you only need to spend $35 to grab some killer products at amazing prices. My faves are their shampoo and this brightening serum.
Healthy Living Books
I love to learn, so I always appreciate a new book about a topic I want to learn more about. Here are a few of my favorite books related to healthy living that each would make an amazing natural gift:
The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy – this is my favorite book on essential oils. It is very thorough and includes lots of recipes to help put your essential oils to use.
Alchemy of Herbs: Transform Everyday Ingredients into Foods and Remedies that Heal: Transform Everyday Ingredients into Foods and Remedies that Heal – I just got this book myself, but am loving it! It makes using herbs approachable and teaches how to incorporate them into your daily diet.
My Paleo Patisserie: An Artisan Approach to Grain-Free Baking – this is a gorgeous book. I have given this book several times as a gift and use it myself in my kitchen. The recipes are all wonderful and the photos are beautiful enough this could be a coffee table book.
