1. Think Practical: Smooth Moves for the Holidays

When it comes to picking the best Christmas gifts, let's be real – who needs more clutter? Instead, opt for gifts that make life smoother and left wasteful. 

This year, practical presents are on the real 'wish list' – they're the goodies you can use daily to level up your lifestyle.

And guess what? Practical presents often mean less waste in the world, so it's more love to go around.

Fun fact: According to recent reports, “90% of Australian households have unwanted or unused items, 80% of household plastics and textiles end up in landfill and $80 billion in fashion purchases end up in landfill each year." YIKES! 

So, what's a practical present, you ask?

The best Christmas gifts are usually something that doesn’t add clutter, won’t end up in landfill and is more than just decoration.

It can be useful for work, leisure or at home.

A practical present can also serve a purpose. It can be something the recipient wouldn’t necessarily purchase for themselves and is more likely to be appreciated at a deeper level.

Remember to steer away from gadgets and look for items or activities that are helpful. If you’re not sure what to give, just ask.

The other major benefit of giving practical gifts for Christmas means less waste in the world.

2. Gift Sustainably: Best Christmas Gifts

Speaking of sustainable gifting, this year, you’ll find purposeful presents one of the best Christmas gifts for family and friends of all ages. 

Sustainable gifts make a great gift because they’re about much more than just buying items for the sake of giving ‘something.’

Sustainable gifting is being more conscious about how purchase and consumption habits affect the health of the planet. It's gifting something that's meaningful, useful and won't just end up in landfill after one use. 

If you’re searching for good gifts to pop under the Christmas tree, shop from brands that have a genuine purpose and prioritise sustainability. 

Look out for ethical sourcing, eco-friendly materials, plastic-free packaging, recycled products, transparency in the supply chain, local brands or zero-waste options. 

Thankfully, shopping responsibly and supporting brands that care about their impact is becoming easier than ever. For inspiration, check out our list of 17 eco-friendly gifts for Christmas.

In addition to the gift itself, review your choice of cards, wrapping paper and sellotape to find more eco-friendly options. 

Whether it’s an item to make daily life easier or a planet-kind personal care product, sustainable presents make the best Christmas gifts.
