‘Tis the season for gifts you can feel good about giving

© Thomas Muller

Gift giving can inspire a range of feelings: There’s that rush of exhilaration when you find the perfect something for a loved one — or the growing sense of dread as the holidays approach and you still haven’t cracked the code. On top of that, gift-giving can take an unwelcome toll on the planet, making it extra daunting to find a gift for the nature-lover in your life. 

Not to worry — we’ve got your back. Conservation International’s 2023 gift guide is full of meaningful and unique items that give back to nature. You could make a donation to protect forests and oceans in a loved one’s name, or gift skin care products that support farmers’ livelihoods and use waste-free packaging. For the young book worm or budding environmentalist in your life, there’s even a children’s series where endangered animals are the heroes. 

Bottom line: These gifts will make you feel good about giving. Follow this link for the full gift guide.
