My Green Christmas Gift Adventure

My Green Christmas Gift Shopping Journey

Santa Clause went shopping for the Green Envy Living Elves this week.  It was needless to say a totally exhausting experience!  Once again, I was baffled and frustrated by the amount of plastic and cheap and nasty toys that are available in the mainstream shops.

What a pleasant surprise I got when I actually discovered the lovely “Green Toys” available in my local Baby Bunting Store!  They are also available in several Australian online stores site for details.

These charming toys are all made from 100% recycled plastic.  They are save, non-toxic, BPA-Free and even meet the FDA food contact standards and are also dishwasher safe.  My eldest already had the seaplane and loved it , and in an effort to minimise bath time fights, my youngest will be receiving the Green Toy Airplane!

I always like to buy my boys books for Christmas.  This year, I decided to forget about the big book shops and grabbed myself some cool bargains from my local charity Endeavour Store.  Endeavour support people with a disability to live in their family home and support them in the community.  These books were in perfect condition!

Books 

This is always a tricky one my teenage nephews!  These are the boys that have everything!  Except, Organic fertilizer, chickens and two ducks!   Which they won’t actually get, but have donated via moi and Australia to someone who really does need them – It’s a bit of a feel good gift to give!

To help them get organised for their final year in school, I also threw in a few Klip notice boards (made from recyclable polypropylene)

Finally, my all time favourite of most versatile “gift for her”.  This suits everything from a Thank You, Welcome to your new House, Thanks for inviting me to your home, Kris Kindle, Secret Santa, Teacher gift, just because for my mum, the list goes one – it’s the lovely Soy Tealight Candle Gift Set!  They’re just so cute, so handy, so useful and so green!  Best of all, they’re only $10 so everyone gets one from me!

These are just a few of my last minute gifts; hope you are all sorted for Christmas now.  If possible try and think Green!

What is Ogham?

Ogham is an ancient alphabet used primarily to write the old Irish and Brythonic languages. It dates from the first century BC.  There are roughly 400 surviving Ogham Inscriptions on stone monuments throughout Ireland and Western Britain.

From a design perspective, why is it beautiful?  Well if you love sharp elongated lines, there is a geometric beauty in its simplicity. There is a wonderful historical perspective of how it was formed etching each letter on stone with a sharp instrument.

Ogham Wish has taken this ancient writing to design beautiful pieces of art with a modern twist. Each inscription relates to a wish or a blessing and is hand painted in Ogham, on handmade paper.  All pieces are framed and have a translation in Modern Irish & English underneath.  The most popular wishes are "Happiness", "Peace", "Love" 

{mojoshop id = 97, images = 1:350:350, name=1, price=1}

We think they make the perfect gift for so many events be it weddings, births, new homes etc. Available in regular size $45 and long $60.  They look cool on their own or grouped in threes!

Now available in Australia from Green Envy Living! www.greenenvyliving.com.au.
