5 Eco-Conscious Gift Ideas for Everyone on Your List

| 12/7/2015 3:42:00 PM

As a double Taurus (Moon & Sun), I look for quality and luxury in useful, sustainable items when giving and receiving gifts. I am not a throw away kind of gal and I detest clutter, so for me to buy something it has to be really special. My grandmom Dolores, a Scorpio, was an excellent gift giver. Every year she bought useful, beautiful high-quality gifts that I cherished. Selecting gifts for people is an art, and when you take time to choose the right gift it’s wonderful to see their faces light up with delight. This year, I am sharing five of my favorite gifts from conscious companies to help you buy for all of the special people in your lives. Ranging from modest to decadent, all items are high-quality, sustainable and eco-friendly.
