for the friend that has everything...

Gift giving isn't just at the end of the year. We have birthdays, engagements, baby showers - I can go on forever. It's nice to send a little gift to someone you care about every once in a while, especially a gift which provides sustainable jobs and supports a special cause. These gifts can be simple, like a sweet card to cheer someone up or something practical for their home. Whatever it may be, this list has some wonderful ideas for all those little gift giving moments in life. Click below to see all five!

1. Greeting Cards by Red + Wolf

How can you not smile when receiving a card with an adorable animal illustration? Plus, knowing they are saving trees & supporting conservation makes it that much better. By using 100% post-consumer recycled paper, Red + Wolf is saving 17 trees & almost 1,700 pounds of waste per ton, AND for every purchase, $1 is donated to the Wildlife Conservation Network. 

Red + Wolf was created by Rachael and her German Shepherd rescue, Chaco. Her sweet illustrations are done in watercolor, and then digitally enhanced to print on eco-friendly paper.

5. Plants

This one may be a bit obvious, but you can never go wrong with plant gifting :D Our homes can never use enough, and it will be with you for years to come {okay, maybe not for all of us}.
