So…. I’m supposed to be studying for finals, but I’m having much more fun holiday shopping! I’m making an extra effort to shop from small businesses this year, and I always find the best handmade, eco friendly gifts on Etsy.
Etsy is my always favorite place to look for cute stocking stuffers, and I’ve also found some beautiful eco-friendly cards and gift wrap on the site.
Here is a roundup of my favorite eco friendly Etsy gifts for this year, all under $100. I hope this guide helps you find the perfect gift for everyone on your list! Check out all my other gift guides for even more ideas.
MY FAVORITE ECO FRIENDLY GIFTS ON ETSY
Linen Pinafore Apron
When I saw this linen apron, I instantly fell in love with it. I just love the relaxed homey style! With the material being 100% linen and 5 pockets, this is the perfect gift for anyone who loves to spend time in the kitchen.
The best part? The designer can dye it just about any color that you can imagine. Not only is this apron adorable and eco-friendly, it’s a super unique and customizable gift for anyone on your list.

Organic Hair Mask Sampler Set
A fair warning- this is one of those gifts that you order one for them… and one for you. Trust me!
I am totally in love with this Hair Mask Set. So much so that I always buy multiple whenever it is in stock. No matter what time of year it is, I feel like my hair always needs a little TLC and this set always provides.
Between an avocado mask, egg yolk, banana, or honey, you will be able to restore hair to its natural, healthy glory.
I am also obsessed with the packaging. Each hair mask comes in a glass jar and is stored inside a reusable linen/hemp drawstring bag.
Perfect gift for anyone with hair!!

Eco Friendly Notebook
One of the best gift finds for guys on Etsy, in my opinion, is this awesome Eco Friendly Journal from Tree&Journal. Made from bamboo and linen paper, this gender neutral notebook is a great purchase for anyone on your list this holiday season, but especially for the men in our lives who can be so hard to shop for.
This journal has all of my favorite features that a notebook can have. You can choose from blank, lined, or grid pattern pages. The bamboo hard cover makes it easy to throw in your gym bag or backpack and protect all of your precious thoughts.
An added bonus? For every journal that is purchased, a tree is planted with a partnership with Tree Sisters.

Vegan Zero Waste Makeup Palette
You know that sound that someone makes when they open a gift that they really cannot believe that you found for them? The kind that is just so unbelievably perfect that they are in shock? I call that the ‘happy gasp’. I promise you this- this vegan makeup palette from Clean Faced Cosmetics will provide a ‘happy gasp’ from anyone you choose to give it to.
This makeup palette isn’t only vegan, its zero waste and completely customizable. That means that you get to pick out your 4 favorite items that the business offers to create a makeup look that is completely unique.

Custom Vegan Leather Journal
These gorgeous custom vegan leather journals from IndigoArtisans are so unique, they are one of my favorite eco friendly gifts on Etsy. Each journal is handmade with a color, pattern, and size that is all chosen by you!
Anyone on your list that is an avid journal keeper will absolutely love this gift. With vegan leather (typically known as cork leather), it really gives the look and feel of a leather journal, but a more eco friendly sustainable alternative.
