I'm a chocolate-loving nutritionist, pre & postnatal coach, doula and let's face it- total birth nerd 🤓. I'm here to help you cut through mommy-marketing and pinterest perfection to confidently cultivate a pregnancy and postpartum experience you totally love.
It’s the holiday season! One of the most magical parts of parenting is playing Santa, but we’ve had to figure out how to do this while remaining budget-savvy, conscious consumers. Our goal is to keep stockings filled with magic, without emptying the bank account. I’m spending the next few days assembling some waste free, budget friendly stocking stuffers.
We set a budget of $30 per stocking and will fill them with something the recipient wants, needs, a treat, and something to read. Need some inspiration? Below is a list of waste free budget friendly stocking stuffers broken down into each of these categories. Many of these ideas support responsible corporations (like BCORPs!), small businesses, or rely on a little DIY action.
Waste Free, Budget Friendly
Choose one item from each category to fill a stocking with waste free and budget friendly fun.
Small trinkets that bring joy! Suggestions below intentionally limit the amount of plastic, packaging, and can be used longterm!
Sometimes they don’t make it into the actual stocking, but everyone gets a book each year. I’ve listed our favorite kids books below! You can find these new or used at your local independent book seller or online via amazon.
Crunch the Shy Dinosaur
The Bunny Planet
Harold & the Purple Crayon
I Spy Books
A is for Activist
A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo
Julian is a Mermaid
Choosing one or two items from each category brings some intentional Christmas magic, without breaking the bank.
