Ethical Gifts Australia: Your eco-friendly, *sparkly* guide to sustainable gifting this season
So you’re on the hunt for a last-minute gift for your person who deserves the best? We got you!
Below we run through the best ethical gifts Australia has on offer. Our jewellery materials and stones are ethically sourced, Australian made and handcrafted with care and attention, making them extra special for your special person.
You’ve found the *one* and you’ve found the perfect proposal setting but you’ve forgotten about the ring! Don’t stress, we keep a ready to ship collection stocked just for you. These spectacular ethical engagement rings are made in our Melbourne studio and all stones and metals are sourced ethically. These babies are made by hand and ready for you to drop the knee and ask for their hand in marriage.
RingsWe have a great range of handcrafted and ethically Australian made statement and stacker rings outside our engagement ring collection. Whether you’re looking for a statement ring with an ethically sourced stone, a stacker (or stack of stackers!), or even a signet ring that can be engraved later, we have a dreamy collection of edgy, pretty and unique designs that’ll make anyone feel special without neglecting mindful and sustainable making this gift-giving season.
Another ethical gift favourite. Either a stone that has a special meaning or perhaps it’s simply their signature colour. A classic set of studs like our faves below are the kind that will stay in the family for generations to come (if your best friend doesn’t claim them first). Keep them shiny for years to come with our jewellery cleaner. These are showstoppers, and yes, you will become their favourite person once they open the box and see these beauties.
Want to capture their heart? Our necklaces are the perfect ethical gift. Handcrafted locally in Footscray they make the perfect eco-friendly gift. They can layer them with simple delicate chains or rock that ethical rock like the statement piece it is. We love our salt and pepper diamonds along with our sapphire stones as they are dead-set stunning but provide a diversity of demand giving the traditional diamond mines a break, promoting sustainability in the industry. But don’t worry, these stunners still pack a brilliant, sparkly punch.
BraceletsBracelets and bangles are one of our favourite ethicals and sustainable gift ideas as they are one piece of jewellery that people tend to never take off. Why is this eco-friendly? Well, it means they are a beautiful investment piece that folks will wear forever and not end up in landfill – we love it! All our favourites below come in a solid metal option meaning they can be worn in the shower or ocean and won’t tarnish.
Windfall’s top picks for ethical Australian gifting
In addition to our collection of sparkles we love pairing our little shiny somethings with some other ethical and sustainable goodies. Here are some of our favourite ethical gift ideas:
Keep cool this summer with bamboo intimates made from our favourite local Melbourne mates at Bare Boutique. They make ethical underwear and garments for everybody, with sizing from XS-7XL.
There is nothing like a fresh manicure to make that gift day picture of the new ring shine. Pair your new Windfall Jewellery ring order with a Kester Black nail polish and they’ll be picture perfect and forever grateful. Kester Black nail polishes are vegan, carbon-neutral and have a whole lot of other fabulous sustainable moves that land them on our hot list for ethical Australian gifts. Our go-to shades are Black Rose, Tall Poppy and Original Detox.
