Gallery: 10 Sure-to-Please Green Home Gifts For The Holidays


It’s been said that home is where the heart is, so this holiday, what better way to show the nicest people on your list how much you care than by getting them gifts to spruce up their pads? Nowadays, there are plenty of home goods that are just as eco-friendly as they are delightful. From pillows shaped like giant Scrabble tiles to a garden that grows right on your walls to a handy gadget that cleans the air with the power of plants, check out our vibrant assortment of green home gifts that will have the recipients smiling from ear to ear.


We guarantee that any Scrabble nerd you know will be blown away when they unwrap their holiday gift to find this set of three pillows within. Each pillow is printed using eco-friendly ink on 100% cotton and you can even specify which letters you’d like.

You adore them but they couldn’t be on time if their lives depended on it! If that sounds like someone you know, give them the gift of punctuality with this cool clock made from reclaimed chalkboards from an Illinois elementary school. And since it’s made out of slate, you can write a little note on it before you wrap it up – perhaps “Stop being late all the time!” would get the message across?
