The season of festive cheer is upon us and in this post we’re looking at how to have a more sustainable Christmas with the help of online boutique Stone & Sage.
Many of us are increasingly aware of our environmental impact – especially at this time of year when we are buying more and seeing the shops filled with plastic toys.
If you’re considering ways to have a more sustainable Christmas, then keep on reading! Stone & Sage has a variety of different gifts and ideas to help you purchase thoughtful presents that everyone will love – while benefiting the planet at the same time.
Wooden toys and gifts
Step away from the plastic and go back to wooden toys and gifts this Christmas. Wooden toys will bring a touch of nostalgia to Christmas Day and have the whole family reminiscing about toys from past generations.

Support local businesses
Shop local this Christmas to help the environment and your local economy. Shop from local stores, or buy from friends or family that are makers or crafters. You’ll be cutting your carbon footprint compared to the air miles that some high street products will have travelled before going under the tree.
Stone & Sage Signature Eco Christmas
Stone & Sage has created a number of eco-friendly Christmas ideas for the season. The sustainable wreath decoration, and all its rustic aesthetics, is finished with a piece of twine. The design features holly and its red berries plus some mistletoe too! These beautiful stamped S&S signature cards with hand dried florals and blooms make for perfect gifting during the festive period or for a rather special occasion.
Gift someone a piece of homeware that they will love for years to come. Stone & Sage has all kinds of preloved items with a real story behind them – give them a new beginning this Christmas!
Lost in scent
Everyone loves a Christmas candle! Lost in Scent candles are made with 100% paraben-free soy wax and have a cotton and linen wick – plus they smell delicious! Snowed In has a festive scent of fruit and spice hanging in the air. Holiday Cheer is an aroma of freshly baked gingerbread, clementine and roasted cinnamon, dusted with sprinkles of sugar.
Essential oils make a wonderful gift for those that value their wellbeing or have a busy lifestyle. Stone & Sage now stock Lune essential oils including a candle, mist and roll on – all created to help relaxation and rejuvenation.
Books are always a hit at Christmas. Share an old favourite as a thoughtful gift or find something that they will enjoy reading over the holidays.
Opt for brown recycled paper instead of regularly gift wrapping to save from waste. You could personalise the gift wrap by stamping on to the paper and use twine instead of ribbon.
