Ten Eco-Friendly Green Graduate Gift Ideas Part I

Like me you probably know someone graduating from high school or college this year and are thinking about an appropriate and cool gift. Of course by now, we have probably established ourselves as the environmentalists of our families. In living up to that expectation I think it is quite appropriate that our gifts reflect that aspect of our lifestyles and encourage our future generations to live consciously. So here are a few ideas:

  • Stainless steel thermos - your graduate will probably drink lots of coffee or tea this year
  • Stainless steel water bottles - these come in many cool colors and designs
  • Reusable tote bag - for trips to the market, cafeteria, friends apartment/dorm
  • Gift basket, bag or box of eco and human friendly personal care products
  • Personalized writing set with replaceable fillers
  • Monogrammed handkerchiefs
  • Bicycle for getting around campus, town, getting to work and staying in shape
  • Book reading device
  • Environmentally friendly laptop
  • Laptop bag and solar powered charger

Check out the "Eco-Friendly Stuff I Like" section of Black and Into Green for more information on some of these items.

Later this week look for Part II of this post on ten super cheap eco-friendly green graduate gift ideas for those of us on a tight budget.
