Reclaimed, Upcycled & Recycled Holiday Gift List

I came across some home decor items recently that I love! These reclaimed items make some of the cutest gifts for the holiday season.  These particular ones are all handmade and made in the U.S.A.  Etsy is a wonderful place to find items like this and you are helping support the Handmade Holiday, Shop Small, and Shop Local movements I am sure you have been seeing around.  I hope you enjoy the items I have found as much as I have finding them.  All of these items were found at Maiden Long Island’s Etsy shop. They currently have a coupon code GIFTS14 to receive 20% off of your purchase of $5 or more. Offer valid today through December 7th.



Recycled Glass Pendants

Recycled Glass Sugar Skull Pendants

I love these Recycled Glass Sugar Skull pendants! They are one of a kind and just plain perfect. The pendants have been made from recycled glass and melted at a high heat to form a smooth surface.The skulls on the pendant are flawless beautiful. The designs of the skulls are very intricate. The pendants are $15 a piece




Shabby Chic Vintage Inspired Screen Frame

Shabby Chic Vintage Inspired Screen Frame





How adorable is this reclaimed frame! Once a picture frame this gorgeous shabby chic design frame has been upcycled and turned into a super fab jewelry organizer! Hang earrings, necklaces or even hair accessories on it. You can even use it as a piece of decor and hang it where ever you want. This is a great idea for old or broken frames. Instead of throwing them away make them useful! This frame in particular is only $20. This is a very versatile gift that many people would love.





Reclaimed Vintage Framed Chalkboard

Reclaimed Vintage Framed Chalkboard





It seems that chalkboards are all the rage. I have seen them everywhere and on everything. I would think giving one as a holiday gift would be a wonderful idea. Maybe even as a gag gift for a teacher! Who knows! This particular vintage inspired frame makes for a perfect sized chalkboard to hang in your home for a to-do list or even more important a chore list, daily reminders, even for recipes while cooking. This frame is $25!!




Olaf Painted Vinyl

Olaf Painted Vinyl





Another super popular holiday them is Frozenof course. I know everyone needs, wants and must have. This is a lovely item that is not only very adorable it is also upcycled. This is a hand painted Olaf the snowman on an old vinyl record. This is an exceptional idea. Use it as a wall hanging or find clock parts and BOOM a clock for your home. The artist also takes custom orders so choose anything you want.

5 Pretty Awesome Green Kids Toys

One of my favorite green stores is Wild Dill. They are a one stop shop for your green kids needs! Besides loving their children’s clothing (which will be addressed in a later article this month) their toys are outta site! I had to share some super cool toys I found while doing some holiday shopping for some friends and family. I hope you enjoy Wild Dill’s toys too!

Cut Veggies

Cut Veggies



This is probably one of the few times it is alright for your children to play with food! You can teach them how to be safe as well as the importance of eating their veggies all in one toy. This toy also helps increase their motor skills and coordination. This toy has used all child safe paints and was Fairly made in Asia.

Color Your Own Cottage

Color Your Own Cottage



I would have loved this when I was a little girl! You can paint and decorate your own playhouse any way you want! The set comes with non-toxic water colors. The cardboard is made from 45% post consumer waste. Your child can use anything they want to make this playhouse their own. Get creative and most importantly have fun.






You child too can have super race cars made out of recycled milk jugs! These cars are super detailed and can rival the likes of any other race car out there. The cars are made right here in the USA which makes them double awesome.







When I was a kid I hated being told I had to stay in the lines! I never wanted to draw anything “perfectly” where was the fun in that? Where was the imagination? This dragon among other styles can teach your child to color out of the lines and follow their own path. I love this little guy! Best of all when you are finished with the toy it is full compostable!


Butterfly Puzzle

Butterfly Puzzle



I’m a sucker for anything colorful and pretty but this simple educational game is really multi functional and is made to last long. The Butterfly Puzzle can be passed down and shared for years to come. The Butterfly Puzzle has been Fairly Made using child safe paints.

Children’s Gifts made in the USA

Now that we are all actively shopping for the holiday’s do not be dazzled by the commercials and jingles you hear everywhere! Make sure to still do your research to make your purchases as green as they can be! Here are some ideas from a favorite store of mine called For the holiday’s is offering FREE Shipping on orders over $65

Gluten free powder paint kit is a creative medium for a child to create a masterpiece with. This safe and organic paint is handmade in Maine and its packaging is made of 100% post consumer waste and 100% post consumer plastic. Paints are made with natural ingredients including fruit, plant and vegetable extracts from beets, spinach, paprika, carrots, purple sweet potato, red cabbage, blueberries and tomatoes.

Easel features hard maple construction, and includes a shelf designed to support large books or paper pads. The center rack provides storage space for supplies, while locking the easel open. The front features a wipe-off marker surface. The back is a large rack for storing over-sized books or drying artwork. Made from regionally grown hard maple and baltic birch in St Paul, Minnesota. Art surfaces are made of Hardboard, a compressed wood w/ a special surface coating.

The set comes with everything you need to get going: three yellow pots, a green planter’s tray, an orange shovel, soil pellets, and three packets of organic seeds (Teddy Bear Sunflower, Basil, and Zinnia). Also includes detailed planting instructions. Green Toys designs and produces all of their toys directly out of California, USA. All Green Toys are derived from recycled milk jugs, then reprocessed into new, harder plastic (HDPE, considered one of the safest, cleanest plastics around). The packaging for Green Toys is extremely minimalist; no plastic film, styrofoam or twist ties are used, only 100% recyclable, corrugated cardboard.

Constructive Eating’s bulldozer pusher, fork lift fork, and front loader spoon are designed with function and play in mind. The textured, easy grip handles and detailing allow little hands to hold on tight. Use them for every meal; each is light weight, and dishwasher safe. This set is great when going out to eat or when trying to extend productive eating time at the table. The utensils are PVC free, phthalate free and free of Bisphenol A (BPA). No paints used.
