I focus so much on finding non-toxic gifts for my children but I’ve found that my family can get overwhelmed thinking of something non-toxic for me. This is a list of non-toxic items that would make great gift ideas (and I would be happy to receive).
I love giving non-toxic gifts as well since we vote with our dollars. To see positive change in this world we have to support companies that are doing amazing things. All of these companies are doing just that.
This list is a mix of big items, small items, and my favorite easy DIY gift to give.

What Are Non-Toxic Gifts
I look for products that are made of natural materials, are organic, GOTS or Oeko-Tex certified, and free of heavy metals.
For those not familiar with GOTS or Oeko-Tex you can read my guide on clothing certifications. You can also find more information on my guide on natural fibers and if organic is worth buying. Below is a quick recap on certifications:
- GOTS: the highest standard in organic fibers. The product is free from any toxic dyes, toxic finishes, formaldehyde, flame retardants, or heavy metals.
- Oeko-Tex: allows both conventional and organic cotton (look for organic Oeko-Tex). Free from hundreds of toxic chemicals. Oeko-Tex products can contain certain flame retardants and low levels of formaldehyde so always verify your products before buying.
- GOLS – is the organic certification on latex found in bedding and furniture.
Also, check out the Natural Baby Mama Amazon Storefront where I have vetted non-toxic products. These are all products I have either personally tested to be free from heavy metals like lead and/or I have researched to be free of toxins. After viewing this non-toxic gift-giving guide, pop over to my Amazon Storefront for hundreds of more ideas!

Organic bedding is an amazing gift. We spend so much of our time sleeping, making sure it is non-toxic is so important. Organic cotton, GOTS certified, sheets are the best you can buy. The next best is organic, Okeo-Tex certified.

Organic Kitchen Towels
Maybe not the most exciting gift, but organic kitchen towels are a gift that will get a lot of use! I always appreciate thoughtful, useful gifts. Here are a few brands that have organic, GOTS certified kitchen towels:

Clean indoor air is one of the most important things you can do. You and your family spend a majority of your time in your home, why not make it as healthy as can be?

Similar to air filters, a water filter is another great gift. I’ve personally tested the Pure Effect filters and it removed all contaminants from my water including fluoride and other toxic chemicals.
Pure Effect has a whole house system, a system that can mount under your kitchen sink, and an above-counter filter if you need something more portable.
I personally own a whole house water system as well as the Pure Effect Ultra UC at our kitchen sink.

The stainless steel Vitamix container is a great non-toxic alternative to their plastic containers. It’s a must-have if you use warm or hot foods in your Vitamix!
BUY VITAMIX STAINLESS STEEL CONTAINER
The Breeo stainless steel fire pit is a “smokeless” fire pit. While I’ve found it isn’t actually smokeless it is more of a low smoke fire pit.

I really like the stainless mason jar lids and rings because they do not rust, I don’t have to worry about what is the in BPA free mason jar lid either. They look nice as an added bonus!

These organic wool dryer balls from Avocado are a great alternative to dryer sheets. They help reduce wrinkles and static and can reduce drying time.

Poofy Organic Make Up
Poofy Organics has a wonderful line of natural, non-toxic makeup. They are also one of the few brands that test for heavy metals and share the report. Poofy Organics has a wide range of wonderful products including personal care products and cleaning supplies!
Crunchi is one of the few organic, non-toxic skincare and makeup brands that is so committed to providing clean, toxin free products that they regularly test their product line. They test for heavy metals and toxins like PFAS (non-stick) to ensure their products are safe. Without regular testing companies don’t necessarily know what is happening in their supply chain. Due to their clean ingredients and product testing, Crunchi is one of my top picks for skincare and makeup!

Saunas are an investment in your health but are a key for detoxing via sweat. This is one of the best investments I made for my health. Saunas start at $4,199.
Mention Natural Baby Mama at The Sauna Life (an authorized Clearlight dealer) for a discount.

I love time away at the spa. I try to find organic, or naturally minded, spas if possible.
Massage oils (and many products at spas) are loaded with toxins including parabens which are linked to a host of issues including cancer. I always bring my own organic coconut oil in a small jar when getting a massage. It’s an easy step to take to avoid toxins.
DIY Vanilla Coconut Sugar Scrub:
Organic Vanilla Coconut Sugar Scrub
This simple, easy DIY recipe to make a vanilla coconut sugar scrub can be found here. This is one of my favorite gifts to make and give to people. I generally make 8-10 jars of this scrub around the holidays.

What an amazing guide you put together. Thank you for sharing this!
ps we bought the smallbirds for my son. he wants to wear them all of the time!
Natural Baby Mama says
Glad to hear it and thank you! 🙂
Thank you so much for great list!
It turns out Urthware does not ship boards unfinished. I contacted them about unfinished option and here is there reply:
“We do not ship boards unfinished as we do a deep oiling and waxing to help prevent warping, cracking and staining.”
Thank you for the guide. May I ask why you avoid walnut?
Some state that walnut is not safe for mouths / kitchen products / toys for young children. I’ve followed the research on that and I believe that to be true. Many still use walnut in these products. I decided to be cautious about it and use cherry and maple, which both are beautiful woods. Walnut is totally safe for items that won’t come into contact with your mouth. I hope that helps!
