Green Gift Guide: 2013

It’s the middle of November and shopping anxiety is beginning to sink in for someone like myself.   I have yet to make a dent in my holiday shopping list.  I still have lots of time, right?  It’s time to focus and start checking off some people on my list!

When it comes to gift giving, I think it’s so important to give both a gift that someone will love, and something that has meaning and significance.

Here are a few gift ideas from our WWF Canada online store for the different types of people in your life!

The added bonus for all of these gifts: All net-proceeds help to support our conservation efforts!

For The Animal Lover
This year, several of my friends can expect a wildlife adoption kit of their favourite animal.  Aside from being absolutely adorable, these cute stuffies are made with high standards for quality and environmental responsibility, with no harmful dyes, or PVCs.

New Adoption Species

Our online store has 27 species to choose from, including 5 brand new species added for this holiday season.  Each adoption kit includes a high-quality wildlife plush, personalized adoption certificate, paper gift bag,  poster and information pamphlet about your species, and a charitable tax receipt for a portion of your purchase.

For the Fashionista or Fashionisto
WWF apparel gives you a stylish way to show you care about our planet.  Our Panda™ golf tees (available in ladies and mens) are made in Canada. The white Panda™ tee is also made in Canada and is available in a crew cut for men and v-neck for ladies.  Our signature Panda logo is printed using environmentally friendly water-based ink.  The organic Panda™ Cap is adjustable to fit men, women, and children.  Choose from your favourite colour: blue or khaki.  All three of these pieces are made from 100% organic cotton!

For the Tech-Savvy
This WWF Bamboo 4GB USB Drive is made of renewable bamboo material.  The WWF branded mouse pad features a fun image of a tiger, which is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.   It makes a perfect gift for young and old, colleagues, coworkers and friends. This mouse pad is made from 100% post-consumer recycled tire content.


For the Caffeine Addicts
Now these are the types of gifts that a caffeine-dependent person, such as myself, would love!  First we have the tea infuser, perfect for brewing loose leaf tea.  It’s double walled and can be used for both hot and cold beverages.   Next, we have the traditional coffee mug.  There is nothing wrong with keeping it classic with a ceramic mug.  Choose from our traditional Panda™ logo or one of four available species mugs.   Lastly, for the coffee lover on-the-go, try the WWF travel mug.  All of these products are BPA free and FDA compliant.  Pair it up with a gift card to their favourite coffee shop, and you have a great gift!

For the Junior Panda
We cannot forget the little ones on your list!  We have some very adorable onesies and matching beanies featuring our WWF logo on the front, and animal paw prints on the back (choice of polar bear or tiger).  These onesies are not only soft and snugly, but they are made in Canada with 100% organic cotton.

We also have a wide selection of colourful, high quality toys and games that are a fun way for kids to learn about nature and animals.  Our Tyga and Pong Line has several toys for infants, including this turtle (below).  No harmful dyes, PVC or materials with chlororganics are used. All packaging materials are printed on 100% post consumer waste recycled paper.

We have several games and activities such as memory games, puzzles, playing cards, and dominos that are all wildlife themed  – and a great tool for teaching about the importance of conservation.
