Gifting season is in full swing, and while we often think about it as the most wonderful time of the year, sometimes it can also be the most wasteful without us realising. Exchanging gifts is a thoughtful gesture to show your loved ones you care, but it’s all too easy to get carried away with buying ‘stuff’ just for the sake of it – bonbons, reams of single-use wrapping paper, ribbons etc. This year, consider giving presents you know they’re definitely going to use – like a travel mug for your coffee-loving friend – or gifts that are made with sustainability in mind. THE ICONIC Considered edit is full of great gift ideas that are more sustainable in their own unique ways – here are some of our favourites for the festive season and why.
Haus of Dizzy Earrings
If you can’t resist the joy of a novelty gift, Haus Of Dizzy is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander -owned accessory label designed and made in Australia. By gifting one of their designs, you’re supporting a local business as well as bringing a smile to your friend’s face.
Australian Community Relief Monopoly
This special edition Australian Community Relief Monopoly has been developed to help support vulnerable Australians, with proceeds from each sale being donated to those in need – it’s a gift that keeps giving. The game highlights some of the amazing Australian communities, both rural and regional, who have come together to help one another during these challenging times.
