2021 Green Gift Guide

December 14, 2021

Christmas is almost a week away and if you’re like the 79% of shoppers who leave their holiday shopping to the last minute…don’t! Use your time (and energy) efficiently: start shopping today.

With office holiday parties coming up, we’ve come up with a few gift ideas that are both cool and eco-friendly that you can give to your coworkers.


For your office White Elephant party: Funny Produce Bags 

New Jersey’s plastic bag ban is coming in 2022. Have a laugh with these punny produce bags during your office White Elephant party.


For both the drink snob and office geek: Corcicle Star Wars Collection 

Whether it’s water, coffee, or wine the Corcicle Star Wars collection has the perfect gift for your drink snob or office geek. Reduce, reuse, recycle!


For that one coworker who is always doodling during meetings:  Rocket Notebook 

Rocket Notebooks is a reusable physical notebook that instantly transfers your handwritten notes into a digital notetaking platform, which in turn eliminates the need for one-use paper notebooks and helps reduce deforestation.


For the weekend warrior co-worker: Solar-Powered Phone Charger 

We all have that one co-worker who would rather be outside than inside the office and spends their weekends out hiking or camping. For when outlets are scarce and cell phones need to be charged, use the power of the Sun with a solar-powered phone charger!


For the office foodie: Window Herb Garden

Set your foodie coworker up with a comprehensive window herb garden (and drop hints about how “sharing is caring”).


For the coworker who is old school: Streaming Device 

We all have that one coworker who hasn’t switched to a Smart TV yet.  Consider giving a streaming device like an Apple TV, Amazon Fire Stick, or a Roku. Streaming devices produce much less energy output than a gaming console.


For that one coworker who is always cold: Eco-Friendly Blanket 

Have your coworker ditch the small, energy-wasting space saver and throw on an eco-friendly blanket to keep warm. Everyone will be jealous. You can always shop local, knit it yourself, or buy a fair trade blanket.

For your whole office: Give the Gift of Energy Efficiency!

If staying warm during the winter is an overall issue at your business, it may be time to upgrade your heating system. Donnelly Energy can help!
