8 New Zealand-Made Sustainable Christmas Gift Ideas

Posted by Chris Larcombe on

Buying Christmas presents can seem like an impossible task, especially if you're looking for sustainable Christmas gift ideas. As shopping with an eco-friendly, sustainable approach becomes more common, good NZ-made gift ideas seem even more limited.

Kiwis have begun to realise the importance of supporting local and ethical businesses and are on the hunt for sustainable, New Zealand-made products in 2022 more than ever before. You’re probably considering what the impact is of each purchase on the planet, and who is making your items.

That’s where we can point you in the right direction. Kind Face™ products use natural and biodegradable materials which are sourced locally and 100% handmade. We have a range of Christmas gift ideas that will make you feel great this holiday season! Not only are these products good for the environment, but they are good for you and also support the local economy. Check out our list of 8 feel-good Kind Face gifts you should consider this Christmas.

 
 
Proudly handmade by us, our Weighted Eye Mask is the perfect gift idea for that person in your life that needs a bit of relaxation.  
Many people experience amazing benefits from weighted eye masks. Similarly to a weighted blanket, the pressure of the eye mask provides a “grounding” sensation, which can help reduce stress and anxiety.
 
Kind Face™ weighted eye masks are infused with the scent of lavender, which has been proven to improve sleep. The mask will block out light while placing pressure on key relaxation points, which can relieve headaches and migraines.  
With a range of colours to choose from, the 100% Turkish linen feels soft and luxurious against your skin. A Kind Face™ Weighted Eye Mask is a special gift idea for someone you know who could do with some stress relief.
 
 
Made of 100% New Zealand wool, our Cloud Wool Pillow provides a natural sleep experience, free of any synthetic fibers or foams. With ultimate comfort and support, a Cloud Wool Pillow is a thoughtful and sustainable gift idea for a loved one.
 
NZ wool has countless benefits that can result in more restful sleep. Wool is the ideal material that offers both moisture management and temperature regulation. Perfect to use during both summer and winter, a wool pillow will keep you comfortable during the night.  
Kind Face™ Cloud Wool Pillows come in a range of sizes, with the option to take out or add more wool for the perfect firmness. The ideal gift for somebody who deserves some extra comfort in their life, and one of our favourite picks for an NZ-made gift.

Our natural Natural Heat Pack is an excellent gift idea that helps relieve neck and back pain, abdominal cramps, headaches, muscular aches, and more.
 
Proudly designed and crafted in our warehouse in Avondale, our heat packs can also be chilled for relief of pain or swelling. The heat packs are filled with flax seeds which retain heat for longer, providing a superior - and ethical - option to wheat bags.
 
Whether it’s to help relieve pain, stress or anxiety, a Kind Face™ Natural Heat Pack would be a suitable gift for any member of the family or close friends.

#4 LINEN FACE MASKS
 
Better than chocolates, the Kind Face™ Linen Face Masks are the ultimate locally produced stocking stuffer! With five colours and three sizes to choose from, our handmade face masks are a practical, yet stylish gift idea.

Face masks are here to stay, so choosing one that is breathable and suitable for everyday use is important. The 3-layer face mask design consists of a breathable 100% linen outer, a sewn-in polypropylene non-woven moisture barrier, and a 100% white cotton lining.  
Thanks to the unique design ensuring comfortable all-day wear, a Linen Face Mask is the perfect sustainable gift idea for travellers, or those required to wear a mask throughout the day. Ours wraps around the head, but you can easily cut the elastic to tie around the ears if you prefer!
 

#5 LINEN DRAUGHT STOPPER

A Linen Draught Stopper is an excellent, functional gift idea that is a bit outside the box! Ideal for someone who enjoys homewares, our trendy Linen Draught Stoppers provide many benefits.

Made from natural materials, and complete with a linen handle for easy moving, a draught stopper has many purposes. In the summer months, your draught stopper will help keep the cool air in, and keep bugs and heat out, while during winter, it will prevent warmth from escaping your house.

At Kind Face™, we believe your draught stopper will pay for itself over time by reducing your heating or air conditioning bill and saving energy! This is an excellent locally crafted gift idea for someone who is eco-conscious.Text

#6 WEIGHTED EYE PILLOW

A Weighted Eye Pillow is a sustainable gift idea for someone who enjoys meditation and relaxation.

Made using Turkish linen, the washable cover allows you to use the pillow during exercise or while wearing makeup. Infused with the calming scent of lavender, a Kind Face™ Weighted Eye Pillow can also be heated or cooled to use for targeted pain relief.

If someone in your life suffers from migraines, sinus pain, tension headaches or eye strain, a Kind Face™ Weighted Eye Pillow is a considerate gift idea to bring them some relaxation.

 

#7 LINEN DOOR STOP

For that person who is obsessed with home decorating, but already has everything, how about an elegant Linen Door Stop?

Not only is this an aesthetic option to decorate a room, but our Linen Door Stop keeps doors from slamming, and delivers a subtle lavender scent that wards off bugs.

Made from Turkish linen and NZ-grown flax seeds and available in four gorgeous colours, this is a thoughtful gift that will look stunning in any home.
