Eco-Babyz 2013 Holiday Gift Guide: HOME & FAMILY



We have presented the Baby and Kids Gift Guides last week, today we're bringing you some hand picked goodies for Home & Family. There are some great unique gifts here that are versatile either for your own family or for those living near and far. These are products and services we stand behind and recommend based on our own experience or that of people we know. Some of these are economical, some are a splurge, but all of them worth the price tag. Feel free to let us know what other Home & Family gifts you have in mind in the comments!

MINTED


Do you have a new addition to the family? Loved ones far away that you would like to keep in touch with? You should check out Minted for their huge selection of custom stationary and options for keeping relatives and friends in the loop. They have adorable holiday birth announcements that are perfect if you've had a baby within the past few months. Their selection of Christmas photo cards is amazing, you'll find something to suit virtually any style. Not to mention other options like photography and art prints, custom notebooks, journals, and stationary. 

The cool thing about Minted is that all their products are designed by independent artists and designers and anyone can submit a design for the Minted community to vote on and add to the line-up. Pretty neat, isn't it?!

ETTITUDE


Have you tried goods made of bamboo fabric? You simply must, it's such an amazing material! Ettitude creates luxurious bamboo sheet sets, comforters, duvets, clothing, underwear, and more. They have bedding both for cribs and for adult size beds. We use one of their comforters daily and love it! It's great to know your bedding hasn't been doused in pesticides. Don't forget to sign up for their newsletter on their home page, you'll get a $10 voucher toward your purchase.

MY ORGANIC HAVYNN


Have you ever wanted to give someone a gift basket only to discover it's full of toxic, chemical filled products? You would love My Organic Havynn natural and organic gift baskets! They have a basket for nearly every occasion that's thoughtfully filled with GMO-free, cruelty free, fair trade, organic and/or completely natural products. The gift baskets have sustainable packaging and the enclosure cards are made from earth-friendly seeded paper that when planted, will bloom with wildflowers! They carefully choose everything they place in these gift baskets and work with many brands we have previously featured here at Eco-Babyz. This gift shop is sweetly named after the founder's daughter.

NOPLASTIC.CA

I'm sure you remember we've worked with NoPlastic.ca on many occasions. We love and still daily use the glass container, non-toxic diamond coated non-stick pan, and stainless ice cubes. If you know someone who has been putting off the switch from toxic plastic food containers to glass, stainless, or other safer alternatives - NoPlastic.ca has great options for healthy food storage. I absolutely love their selection of leak-proof food storage containers that can be so hard to find!

NIELSEN-MASSEY


For the person on your list that enjoys baking, Nielsen-Massey offers a variety of high quality vanillas and flavors that infuse baked goods with delectable aromas. These pure vanilla extracts are made to the highest of standards and simply cannot be compared to the artificial vanilla flavoring you usually find in stores. In fact, I use their organic vanilla every week when I bake cookies and pies! We have both reviewed their products and have bought them locally on several occasions. I highly recommend Nielsen-Massey good for the baker on your list!

SUN OVEN


If you've got someone on your list who loves the outdoors or likes to save money and be eco-friendly, this splurge worthy gift would really amaze them! The All American Sun Oven allows you to cook food harnessing the free power of the sun. It is used all over the world where access to electricity isn't feasible or available. The All American Sun Oven with Preparedness and Dehydrating Package makes it easy to naturally dry vegetables, fruits, meats (jerky!), herbs, and fish. Great for poultry and roasting, heating water, and even making breads or cakes. It's something that can even be life-saving in an emergency!

Want to give a gift you created? Maybe you want to give the grandparents a photo book of your family's favorites from this year? Maybe you've finally decided to take the plunge with a Family Cookbook that everyone has been begging you to make? Blurb is THE place to make these dreams come true. It's so easy to make a book with the tools they provide, it can be anything you can dream up and you're only limited by your imagination!

BERKEY

Clean water is a great gift for any family, including your own. Berkey is considered to be on of the top water filtration systems in the world and rightfully so. These stainless steel water filters remove contaminants from your tap water such as chlorine, fluoride, pharmaceuticals, and even viruses. It's a big investment for your family's health. The Berkey comes in various sizes and is priced from $230 to $325.
