Housewarmings, baby showers, graduation gifts, sympathy gifts, gifts for the new mother, gifts to celebrate a promotion, anniversary, or a personal achievement. We give gifts hundreds of times throughout our lives. Gifts are a means of celebration, to express our love for family or friends, to express an apology or our sorrow over our loss.

We use gifts to say congratulations on a job well done, and to welcome new people to the neighborhood. But how many times have we really sat down and considered what impact those gifts have on the world and the health of the people we send those gifts too?

Today, thanks to the growing number of people who are living a more natural, organic, and earth friendly lifestyle, there are a growing number of organic and natural products you can choose from that are perfect for gift giving.

From individual organic wines to give as a hostess gift for that special dinner invitation, to house warming, baby shower, and holiday gift baskets.

Organic Gift Baskets Are A Great Way To Introduce Friends To An Organic Lifestyle

While you yourself have all ready been living a more healthy and organic lifestyle, you probably have many friends that have not yet made the leap. Organic gift baskets are a great way to stay true to your own lifestyle while introducing your friends and acquaintances to some great organic and earth friendly gifts.

Learning what kinds of organic gift options are available, which companies offer the best choice, and keeping a list of those companies for future gift giving, will save you a good deal of time when ordering your gifts. Keep in mind that many companies offer coupons that you can use to help you save money when selecting some of these gifts.

Why Choose Organic and Eco-Friendly Gifts

Many of the gift baskets that are available today are attractive, but contain processed foods and other products that loaded with chemicals that are harmful to people and to the environment. When you choose organic and eco-friendly gift baskets, you are choosing products that contain little if any preservatives or additives and no harmful chemicals.

This results in you feeling secure that you are sending a wonderful gift that is healthy for both the person receiving the gift and for the environment as well.

Organic Food and Beverage Baskets and Sets

Food gift baskets are always extremely popular and there are a number of ready made organic food baskets and sets available. Some of the unique gifts you will find in organic food include:

  • Tea
  • Wine
  • Beer
  • Fruit juices
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Cheeses
  • Candy
  • Snacks
  • Nuts and nut butters
  • Herbs and spices
  • Honey
  • Baby foods
  • Condiments

There are lots of different organic food gifts as well as baskets that combine many of these foods. In addition, many organic food gift companies offer gluten free baskets as well. One of the great things about organic gift baskets and sets is that these gifts are attractively packaged in an earth friendly manner, and in many cases, the containers themselves are organic.

Other Types of Organic Gifts

Food isn’t the only type of organic gift that you can give to those you care about. Some of these gifts include:

  • Organic gardening products
  • Spa
  • Cleaning
  • Aromatherapy
  • Candles
  • Newborn gift baskets
  • Gift baskets for pets

Pre-Made Gift Baskets, Design Your Own, DYIs

When giving organic gift baskets, there are many different choices. Many businesses who sell these baskets offer customers the choice of selecting from pre-designed gift baskets, or designing your own from the gifts that they have available.

For those that want to be even more involved in what goes into your gift baskets, you always have the option of purchasing these organic foods and products separately and making your own gift baskets from scratch.

How To Design Your Own Gift Basket

One of the great things about designing your own gift basket is that you can choose those those items and only those items that you know that the receiver will enjoy. In addition, when you create your own gift basket, you can combine items that the companies simply may not consider combining.

For example, while a company-made spa basket may contain a lot of great products such as shampoos, and skin care products that will help the receiver relax, feel and look great, you can take that spa idea a step further and create a real afternoon of relaxation by including the following in your basket:

  • Organic bath products
  • A large fluffy organic towel
  • Organic tea samples
  • A small box of organic chocolates
  • A couple of great smelling organic candles

Do it yourself gift baskets are fun to create and make wonderful gifts for any occasion or no occasion at all.

Company Made Organic Gift Baskets

Purchasing those gift baskets through a local or internet company offers a lot of benefits. The baskets are professionally designed and are appealing to the eye as well as the taste buds, body, or sense of smell. They are also delivered right to the door of the person who is receiving the gift which makes long distance gift giving easy and simple.

Why not check out some of the great organic gifts that are available before your next gift giving occasion.

What’s the best gift you ever received? Do you only give gifts for special occasions? When was the last time you sent a gift just because you wanted to let the person know they were special?
