An energy-efficient gift for everyone on your list

It can be difficult to decide what gifts to buy during the holidays, so we have some energy-efficient suggestions for everyone on your list. (Bonus points if you wrap them in newspaper or sustainable wrapping products!)

For That Friend Whose Cell Phone Is Always Dead: Portable Battery Charger

Nothing’s more frustrating than someone you can’t reach because their phone died—again. Help them out by gifting them with a portable battery charger.

For That Sibling Who’s Afraid of the Dark: LED Light Bulbs

The holidays are the beginning of the winter season, meaning daylight is at its shortest. Show your sibling you care with a package of LED light bulbs to fight those fears.

For That Coworker Who’s Perpetually Cold: Blanket

Not only does it use zero energy, but it also can avoid the thermostat temperature from being raised. Now that’s a win-win!

For That Cousin Who Adores Hulu and Netflix: Digital Media Player

They’ll enjoy being able to binge-watch their favorite shows from a variety of streaming platforms. (Maybe they’ll thank you by sharing their Hulu and Netflix account information so you can use them too!)

For That Grandparent Who Could Use an Update: TV

They’ll be thrilled to learn about all the perks of their new TV, including the amazing quality of that big screen! Be sure to set them up with an energy-saving power strip to help make their TV watching as energy efficient as possible.

For That Niece Who’s in a Band: Wireless Speakers

She’ll be glad she can hear her (and her favorite artists’!) music wherever she goes on a set of wireless speakers with incredible sound quality.

For That Connected Home: Smart Thermostat

Set the smart thermostat to your daily schedule, and it’ll turn the HVAC system on and off based on your settings, which can contribute to energy savings.
