A bit of advice as you choose eco-friendly stocking stuffers this year – if you can already visualize it in someone’s junk drawer, don’t buy it.
Does it matter if the stocking is actually “stuffed” with items? It doesn’t to us! A partially filled stocking of things your loved ones will actually enjoy and use is much more fun to dump out than dozens of useless items.
Here are some eco-friendly stocking stuffers our team (or the kids on our team) agreed we’d be happy to get this holiday season.
