Wondering what eco-friendly gifts you can give your overnight guests? These reusable gifts give back to the environment that your guests can take home. I’ve been to several weddings where I’ve had to stay overnight and was always pleasantly surprised by a welcome guide and thoughtful gift bag from the couple.  I took it one step further to give you some planet-friendly wedding inspiration gift giving ideas without using plastic.

Consider purchasing reusable Organic Cotton Lunch Bags and stock it full of sustainable goodies.  You can even have customizable print on your bags when you purchase in bulk.  After all the exciting wedding festivities, who isn’t tired and thirsty?  Skip the plastic water bottles! What’s better than boxed water! Maybe you have a sweet tooth after dancing the night away, enjoy Chocolove, made in Boulder, CO, my favorite place in the U.S.  Forgot your toothbrush at home, no worries, this sustainable Wowe bamboo toothbrush will last a long time.  Draw your bath water and unwind with this soy candle by Cottage Wicks.

Whole Weddings designs more than wedding invitations on seed paper.  Your wedding weekend schedule can be printed on wildflower paper too! When your guests go home, they can plant their guide and grow beautiful wildflowers to remind them of your wedding day. Stainless Steel Straws make a wonderful reusable parting gift for your guests who choose to refuse plastic straws when they are on the go.

  1. I love everything about this, Corey! Such great information with real examples of things we use every day that can be substituted for items that show a little more love for our planet. Great suggestions for couples wanting to show hospitality for their guests.
