Your Complete Guide to Eco-Friendly Gift Giving

No matter how long your list is, we have something for everyone! Jusu was founded on the central realization that our world, humanity, and with it those who we love most; require care and protection. Buying gifts you know people will use, that are made ethically and sustainably, means less waste in the environment, and a healthier world for all of us.

Gifts for Him/Them

Filling their stocking is never easy, but we have a few ideas. Although this list might be short, it’s full of absolute essentials that they’ll be using for months after the holidays are over. 

Natural Hair Putty

This putty conditions with nutrient-dense organic butters while natural plant waxes keep hair and beards styled all day, naturally. It protects the hair from environmental damage, and brings body and lasting style. Perfect for that someone on your list who likes to stay styled and eco-friendly.

Smoky Cedar Deodorant

You might think that gifting deodorant is a risky idea, but with a product that works and smells this good, they won’t mind! Its naturally effective odour control combined with the grounding, woodsy scents of Virginia Cedarwood and Frankincense essential oils makes it last all day long.

Natural Bar Soap

For the biggest earthlover on your list our natural bar soap (or a few of them!) are an essential gift. Our earthy zero-waste almond pulp creates soft, sumptuous skin through gentle exfoliation. The almond pulp’s high vitamin E content keeps skin looking youthful, radiant, and toned. Certified organic fair trade Baraka Shea Butter leaves skin feeling squeaky clean and wonderfully hydrated. Our body is the vessel which allows us to do what we love, with whom we love so treat it right!

Gifts for Her/Them

A lot of us have learned about the importance of skincare during 2020 whether it was through TikTok skincare routines or the millions of videos on Youtube, we suddenly had time to learn how to take care of our skin. With so many products out there, it can be hard to find one that’s good for the earth. That’s why we’ve rounded up our top skin care gifts for her/them so you can give the gift of rejuvenated skin and keep the earth clean.

The night oil is a fresh, herbal blend of cleansing key lime and bergamot that is balanced with calming garden notes of lavender and chamomile. It smells delicious and leaves skin soft and nourished. Perfect for a stocking stuffer or a gift on its own.

Saké Pearl Face Mask

With the harshness of winter, many people are looking to renew their skin. Help your loved ones by giving them the gift of youthful, moisturized skin! Saké kasu, a fermented rice brimming with bioavailable vitamins and ocean water pearl powder work in this mask to refine pores, reduce redness and balance skin tone. It is a must-have mask for all skin types to achieve a creamy, radiant complexion. Perfect for anyone who is new to skin care.

Gifts for New Parents + Babies

The biggest problems with buying gifts for newborns and parents is figuring out what parents already have, what size the baby is, and if they’ve already been overwhelmed with too many toys! It’s easy to miss the mark, so the safest bet is to give something you know they’ll use, and that they can feel confident is safe for their little one.

2-in-1 Baby Wash & Shampoo with Aloe Vera and Lavender Water

This wash and shampoo is the best gift to give new parents, and a customer favourite of ours! Our natural baby wash uses essential oil hydrosols to minimize little one's exposure to scent while also cleansing the hair, scalp and body. 

Belly Butter with Sweet Orange and Vanilla

This nourishing cream is free from Petroleum Jelly, Parabens, Fragrance and 100% baby approved. Giving this to new parents guarantees your gift will be used. 

Finally, we encourage you to wrap your gifts in eco-friendly wrapping paper! Our favourites are Wrappr, Wrappily, and good old fashioned newspaper. Get crafty and save a tree!
