The holiday season comes with an influx of spending. But the reality is that most people end up buying things that they don’t need. Does your kid really need more toys and will they really play with them?
Most often the answer is no.
The toys will probably just go to the sad land of unused relics piling up in your kid’s rooms. Buy hey, I’m not the only one that believes this.
Toy Story did have a point.
With all the future unused and unloved toys that will be bought this holiday season, let’s just say one thing.
It’s time to put an end to the extravagant spending.
Now, this doesn’t mean that you can’t treat yourself or your loved one to some nice new things. So here’s to the practical holiday spirit (and a nice budget, of course)!
1. Bamboo Comb
For all the men and bearded ladies. This stylish comb is made of long lasting bamboo and even comes with a brush. Check price at Amazon: Beard Brush & Comb Set.
I heard about bee’s wrap a few months ago when I saw it in a Youtube video. It’s a type of reusable paper that can be used to store food and keep it fresh. Say goodbye to plastic wrap, because the bees are taking over! Check price at Amazon: Bee’s Wrap Assorted 3 Pack.
3. Eco-friendly Straws
Not only do plastic straws pollute the environment, but they can also hurt sea animals like fish and turtles. That’s why reusable straws have been all the rage lately. There are ton of different styles and materials to choose from, but I prefer the stainless steel straws. Check price at Amazon: Hummingbird Glass Straws.
4. Charcoal Toothbrush
Say goodbye to plastic toothbrushes. This baby is made of durable bamboo and can brush your teeth just as well. Check price at Amazon: Eco-Friendly Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrush.
5. Reusable Food Storage Bags
I don’t know about you guys, but buying plastic bags adds up. If you’re always buying sandwich or freezer bags, you might want to take a look at these reusable bad boys. Check price at Amazon: Eco-Sil Reusable Silicone Bags.
6. Multi-use Shopping Bag
Some states recently imposed taxes on plastic grocery bags, but no worries. These bags are way more stylish. Seriously, take a look at the designs. They’re beautiful.
If we’re being honest, I wouldn’t use them for just groceries. I’d take them everywhere. Check price at Amazon: Reusable Shopping Bag.
7. Sprout Graphite Pencils
This is a present I would have loved when I was little. Hell, I’d even love it now. Check price at Amazon: Sprout Plantable Graphite Pencils.
