When it comes to holiday gifts, we can probably all agree that the best ones are both mindfully made, and mindfully selected. Browsing our previous features and Editor’s Picks is a good way to find inspiration: Maybe you’ll take a liking to these reusable straws, or reusable food wrappers and containers? If you’re shopping for the wellness obsessed, we’ve selected a few must-haves here; and for beauty junkies, a lovely face oil, body scrub, perfume or nail polish might just hit the spot.

The following is in large part a best-off selection of eco-friendly, plastic-free, recycled or otherwise great pieces that we’ve talked about before on Make it last; hence the reading recommendations. Hope you find it inspirational, and even educational. Happy holidays!
