Hippy Girls Gift Guide
I know what you’re thinking, “I’m not giving my family homemade patchouli scented deodorant “
Relax, that’s not where I’m going here.
But looking at thing a little more “crunchy” couldn’t hurt.
Here are a few ideas to get you thinking about things a little differently.
1: The Re-Gift.
Once considered tacky, the Re-Gift is now thoughtfully respectful of Mother Earth. Common Re-Gift upcycles usually involve items that are “NWT” or (New With Tags, for all you thrift shopping newbies).
Extra Crunchy Points: Gifting a thrift store purchase, not NWT.
2: The Homemade.
I saw the shudder, as you muttered “I’m not the crafty type” guess what? Thanks to the invention of the inter-web, you don’t have to be. Just google “easy handmade gifts for readers” and you’ll find step by step directions on how to craft a wreath from old book pages. If you’re feeling guilty about destroying a book, use an old phone book, no one needs those any more. This works for just about anything.
Extra Crunchy Points: Combine the Upcycle with the Homemade (see what I did with the phone book?)
3: The Natural.
This gift can be unique and deeply meaningful with some planning and forethought. Do you have a friend you walk with regularity? Gather a few colorful fall leaves and some pretty stones and put them inside a shadow frame box. Include a little card saying “I gathered these items as we’ve spent time together walking, so when life gets you down, you can look at this and remember the time we’ve shared”
Extra Crunchy Points: Scoring a frame at a thrift shop
4: The Inner Child:
Give the gift of crayons and a coloring book. Not one of these “grown up” coloring books designed for relaxation with delicate fine tip markers, but a true throw back from childhood….Strawberry Shortcake, Smurfs, He-Man coloring books and a bright 20 pack of Crayolas.
Extra Crunchy Points: Coloring a couple of random pages before you give to make your friend smile and think of you.
5: The Re-Usable Replace.
Gift to someone one thing for their home that not disposable to replace something that is. Cloth napkins, Unpaper Towels (yes, that’s totally a thing), fun fabric printed cotton wipes to replace disposable cotton balls and squares.
Extra Crunchy Points: Purchasing them in tie/dye colors.
Being a little more hippy this holiday season doesn't only make our world a better place, it can make our hearts a better place too.
