As part of a fun holiday series, I've asked interior design "tastemakers," from designers and stylists to bloggers and shop owners, to share their favorite go-to holiday gift ideas with me.
Environmental lifestyle expert and eco-stylist Danny Seo shared his go-to holiday gift ideas with me:
On his go-to gift:
This may sound lame, but my go-to gift as an eco-stylist is to give people a gift card. Hear me out . . . During the holiday season, there are millions of people who drive to their shopping mall to buy gifts, wrap them up, and give them away. On Dec. 26, millions of people drive to the shopping mall to return millions of gifts. It adds up to tons of fuel wasted, gift wrap thrown away, and damaged merchandise that eventually ends up in our landfills. With a gift card, people can buy exactly what they need. No mistakes about it.
On how to personalize your gift card wrapping:
To wrap a card up, I take an old Altoid mint tin, wrap it in paper, fill it with peppermint candies and put the card right on top. Easy, eco, and no waste!
