Green Gifts for the Holidays for Her. Green Mama Approved

Holiday Gift Guide for Your Green Her

Lost about what green gift  to get for the Green Her in your life? (Yes, the GREEN Her.)  Maybe it is your mom, wife, sister or friend.  And you haven’t gotten a F’in green conscious clue.  So with a little help from my fellow green sisters, I am going to help you out.  Funny thing.  I wanted many of the same things my green sisters listed.  So, I bet your Green Her will too.  Oh,  Hubs, are you taking notes?

Love the Kitchen Gadgets

Did you think only men love gadgets?  Think again.  If it whirls, stirs, and spits out a meal, I am there.

Simple Things

  • New Baby Mama Abbie of the Farmer’s Daughter simply wants a great haircut, organic highlights and manicure.  Oh, and if you throw in the make-up, she is one happy camper.  I hear you, Abbie. Me?  Love. Love Miessence Organic Skin Care products!
  • Kimberly Pinkson of EcoMom Alliance  *hearts* a sweater from fair trade, sustainable Indigenous Design.  (Um, who wouldn’t?)
  • Erin of Healthy Home Magazine simply wants wool slippers and a double walled glass traveling mug.  Looks like  Grosche Glassen Hand Made Double Walled Insulated fits the bill, Erin’s hubs.
  • Jenn of Jenn and Joey Go Green  wants a sewing machine so she can make homemade gifts and clothes.  Add Micaela’s green craft book and it will seal the deal.

The Garden:

 I bet you thought I would be asking for absolutely everything in the garden.  That deserves its own post.   So, are what do my green sisters want:
  •  Diane of Big Green Purse wants a green housekeeper to clean her house and organic gardener to whip her yard into shape. Add in a fountain in the garden and energy efficient music console, and she is one happy green mama.

By the way add in Diane’s book’s Big Green Purse: Use Your Spending Power to Create a Cleaner, Greener World.  Power of the purse, baby.  Every Green Her loves such power.

 Eco Me Home.

Okay, if you have been reading Green Talk for awhile you know I am the green building maven. So I was pleasantly surprised to see windows and paint on the list.  You go, green sisters.

  •  Lynn of Celebrate Green wants to re-paint her rooms with eco-friendly, no VOC paints.  A little paint goes a long way in the decor arena. No VOC Benjamin  Moore Aura or Natura, Mythic, Yolo, and Sherwin-Williams’ Emerald comes to mind.  (Hint. Buy Lynn’s book, Celebrate Green to green all your  holidays.)
  • Lisa Sharf of RetroWife Goes Green wants environmentally friendly furniture and an eco-friendly countertop.  Do you blame her with all the nasty information about flame retardants  and other toxin’s poisoning us?    ( Hint: for furniture, take a look at my articles on Viesso, Cisco, and Furnature.  Countertops: IceStone, Vetrazzo and Eco by Consentino .)
  • Beth of My Plastic Free Life want to rip up her carpet and install sustainable wood or bamboo floors.   Oh, and throw in some new windows.  Can you say energy saving,  triple pane windows? Or how about those solar pane windows?  (Throw in Beth’s book to on how to live a plastic free life and the Green Her will love you. )
  • Meg of the Green Diva Radio Show just wants something simple.  A natural latex mattress to soothe her beautiful diva voice at night.  Is that a lot to ask for a green diva? I think NOT.
  • Tiffany of Nature Moms wants a stand alone freezer. (Energy star, no doubt.)  Why?  To store her half cow or a whole pig from a grassfed farm share.  Tiffany is our Paleo green girl.
  • Lisa of Condo Blues love handmade soaps and lotions.  Who doesn’t?

 

My Wish List:

Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams

Some green sisters have very, very BIG holiday dreams.  Leigh Ann of Green 4 u of wants a Tesla Crossover. (Don’t we all?)  Stephanie of Good Girl Good Green, Jenn of The Green Parent, and Priscilla of A Gluten Free Vegan Mom Who Knows  all want solar and wind power.   Add in eco-friendly homes and gardens and Priscilla and Stephanie are happy campers.

Lori of Groovy Green Livin and Emily of Random Recycling wish for the perfect large eco-efficient car.  Seating for 7 + one large dog.  Detroit?

    Saw one of the items is a natural latex foam mattress. My husband and I bought one recently and we LOVE it. It is amazingly heavy though. If you get one definitely opt for the in home set up.

    I love this list, especially since I know it’s “Green Mama” approved, by some of my most favorite and amazing green blogger moms and women on the internet. Thanks for pulling this all together.

    Fantastic list! Regarding the “green” appliances you mentioned, an energy efficient power strip might make the perfect gift accouterment for that special eco-conscious woman this holiday season. I also love the mention of organic highlights–Do you happen to know if any drugstore sells organic hair dye? Would love to experiment!
