Sustainable Christmas Gifts

Sustainable Christmas gifts may sound nice to you at the moment, but you may not really want to think about it. The past few months of this year and the whole of the last period in general have not been easy for most of us. On the contrary. There were and are all kinds of reasons for concern. There is still the situation around Corona, rising inflation, war in Europe and, last but not least, the climate crisis, to name but a few. These issues can weigh heavily on each and every one of us and on us as a society. So it stands to reason that Christmas celebrations and the thought of expensive Christmas presents feel a little out of place.

And yet, or perhaps precisely because of this, we would like to encourage you to create a festive space for that which unites us. The love for each other. Because that is Christmas in the original sense, the festival of love - and it should always be worth celebrating love for each other. No matter whether you and your loved ones call it Christmas or otherwise. And if the gesture of giving is part of this celebration for you, we would like to invite you to browse through our sustainable Christmas gifts. We think Maren jewellery is - especially in times like these - an optimal Christmas gift: it is personal and a daily companion of love, it holds its value and is sustainable to boot!

Personal Christmas Gifts: A Mindful Love

The most beautiful gestures are not only sustainable Christmas gifts, but also personal Christmas gifts. A mindful love. This is not only our guiding principle, but also an attitude to life that is worth remembering every day. That's why our beautiful A mindful love heart pendant, handmade in Germany from recycled 18 carat gold and with a hand-set synthetic eco diamond, is ideal as a personal Christmas gift for people with a love of mindfulness.

Frequently asked questions about sustainable Christmas gifts

Jewellery makes a wonderful special Christmas gift for a number of reasons:

Personality: Provided you are a little familiar with the style of the person you want to give a gift to, jewellery can be a beautiful and individual gift. With timeless and easily combinable pieces of jewellery in the appropriate style, you can present a lasting Christmas gift for eternity that tells your very own story. It becomes even more personal with an individual message in the form of an engraving.

Stable value: jewellery as a sustainable Christmas gift does not lose its value. In the current volatile and worrying times, it can make sense to opt for a gift with stable value. Gold and silver have proven to be stable in value and crisis-proof in recent years. Moreover, gold in particular can be expected to increase in value in the coming years. The percentage of gold in the jewellery is important. The higher it is, the more the jewellery is worth. At Maren Jewellery we only use 18 carat gold. Learn more about Gold alloys in our journal.

Imperishability: Not only the value of the precious metal is permanent, but also the piece of jewellery itself. If you opt for good quality, high-quality jewellery will last well beyond the life of the recipient and can be passed on to future generations as an (emotionally) valuable memento.

We think these are enough and above all convincing reasons why pieces of jewellery are ideal as special and sustainable Christmas gifts.

Sustainable Christmas gifts, just like sustainable gifts and products in general, are made from sustainable materials and produced under fair conditions. In the case of jewellery, only Fair Trade or recycled precious metals should be used. All other components of the jewellery, such as pearls or gemstones, must also be recycled and fairly traded. Their origin must be fully traceable. Ideally, as with us, they use directly in the laboratory grown diamonds . Furthermore, all other materials used such as outer packaging etc. should be of non-animal origin and as plastic-free as possible. Local production at a fair wage and in compliance with all labour protection measures with regard to the activity itself, but also with regard to working hours, should be obligatory in the production of sustainable Christmas gifts.

Other important prerequisites for sustainable Christmas gifts are quality and combinability. Only if the gift lasts a long time and can be combined with a timeless minimalistic design can easily fit into different outfits and looks, it will really be worn permanently. Short-term trends and poor quality undoubtedly do not make for special Christmas gifts.

Furthermore, it goes without saying that only sustainable Christmas gifts should be given that the recipient can really use and enjoys wearing. The most beautiful necklace is too bad as a gift if it only disappears in a jewellery box.

We offer two high-quality packaging options for your sustainable Christmas gifts in the form of jewellery. We have teamed up with sustainable partners to offer two high-quality packaging options. You can choose between our Linen Case made of linen or our Paper Case made of paper. In addition, our paper insert, filler, shipping labels and even the ink for our wrapping paper are sustainable. If you want to know more about our sustainable packaging, you can find all the information in the Journal on the topic of packaging .

As a sustainable company, Maren Jewellery usually produces "made to order". This means that only when we receive an order do we start producing the corresponding piece of jewellery. This allows us to save valuable resources. Our production time is therefore 1-3 weeks. Nevertheless, there is also a small stock of pieces that we can ship immediately. You can find this here.
