The 2018 Eat Love Move Happy Hormone Holiday Gift Guide, Part 1: To Go Plastic Free (Or Just Use A Little Bit Less)

Two weeks until Christmas! Are you ready? I’m not… at all. I’m going to be doing a lot of last minute shopping this year! 

.

For those of you that are on the last minute shopping vibe like me, I’ve put together a few gift guides with lots of ideas that will arrive in time for Christmas and will help your loved ones support their hormone health.  

.

Part one of this gift guide has lots of gift ideas to help reduce plastic or even begin to go plastic-free. 

.

Happy shopping!

Redecker Dishwashing Brush 

Ditch the disposable dishwashing sponges and make the switch to these sturdy dishwashing brushes, made from wood and natural plant fibres. 

.

Bee’s Wrap Beeswax Wraps 

I’ve been using this clingfilm alternative for the past year and I have to admit, I was pretty skeptical at first. I didn’t see how they would be able to replace the durability of clingfilm. But then I started tracking how much clingfilm we were using and reminding myself how little of it gets recycled. Once you get the hang of these wraps and the different sizes, you’ll never go back to clingfilm! 

.

Diva Cup Menstrual Cup

I made the switch to menstrual cups a few years ago and now, I would never go back to using tampons or menstrual pads. I wrote about my experience here, if you’d like to know more about the ins and outs of using a menstrual cup. From an environmental view, making the switch to a menstrual cup reduces your environmental footprint (the average woman throws away over 200kg of menstrual products in their lifetime!)

.

Reusable Metal Straw

Many restaurants, bars and coffee shops have started to make the switch from plastic to paper straws, which is a positive step. By carrying around your own metal straw you help reduce waste and avoid the need for a disposable straw at all! 

.

Reusable Bamboo Cutlery Set

If you have the metal straw, you might as well go all the way and get a full reusable bamboo cutlery set, complete with fork, knife, spoon, chopsticks and a bamboo straw. This would be a great gift for a friend that eats many lunches ‘al desko’ 😀

Klean Kanteen Stainless Steel Water Bottle


These are such a lovely, thoughtful gift. So many of us want to increase the amount of water we drink (and rightly so!), but it can be easy to forget to fill up your water glass in the morning. These stylish water bottles take up to 800ml at a time and are light enough to slip into a rucksack when you’re out and about. 

.

Lock and Lock Glass Food Storage Containers 

Over the last two years, I’ve gradually replaced all of our old hand me down plastic tupperware with these brilliant glass food storage containers. Yes, they’re glass, so you have to be careful with them, i.e. don’t just fling them into the sink like me, because they break 🤔
