Summer is often a time for weddings and wedding showers. Love is in the air as temperatures rise and venues are filled with couples saying ‘I do’. It also means that you may be looking for the perfect gift to give. Maybe you want to say congrats to the newly engaged couple, need to bring a gift to a wedding shower or are giving a wedding gift. Here’s how to be give an environmentally friendly and sustainable gift during this summer’s wedding season.
For the green-minded couple, they will appreciate a meaningful, thoughtful gift from terra20. In fact, there’s a chance they may already be registered for the terra20 Gift Registry. Even if they aren’t, there are many unique, special gifts to give from terra20.
Perhaps the easiest gift to give is a terra20 gift card. The gift card will allow them to stock up on everything they need for their home from bedding to bath products to cookware. If you purchase an in-store gift card they can be used at either of the terra20 stores in Ottawa or you can purchase an online gift card for online only shopping, whichever may be most convenient for the newlyweds!
Encourage the newlyweds to cuddle up together with a gorgeous wool Klippan blanket in their favourite colour. These décor-friendly wool blankets are not only beautiful laid across the arm of any couch, but what’s even more special is how comfortable and warm it is when you are bundled up in it. The production process for these blankets are cruelty-free from start to finish.
Gift them a gorgeous set of luxurious, and eco-friendly, Canadian-made bath products including something that’s a bit more intimate like the Barefoot Venus massage oil. I love the idea of putting together lotions, bath salts, oils and more in one beautifully smelling and sensual bath package to adorn their bathroom shelves. Barefoot Venus is consciously crafted to provide serious skin treatments and a wildly angelic experience.
When I first saw this I instantly wished that I was given this for our vineyard wedding. The Burgundy Oak Wine Barrel clock is very unique and will look amazing in any home. There is no other gift like it, and for the couple who not only loves wine, and the environment, these thoughtfully crafted time pieces made in Alberta will be a lasting gift for the ages. The clocks use wine barrels from Napa Valley and the Okanagan regions.
Is there anything better than crawling into bed at the end of the day and feeling cozy in bedding that is comfortable and feels luxurious? I don’t think so. Bamboo bedding packages that include a fitted sheet, a flat sheet and pillow cases in a variety of colours like blue, white and grey, will help make a welcoming bedroom space for the new couple. I love that they are sustainable, breathable, naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial.
No matter what gift you give, share your love, and their love, for the earth by greening your wedding gift this season.
