Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year especially for the Born to be Adventurous website. I love putting together a list of our family’s favourite items into a gift guide. Well, this year we put together a list of our favourite sustainable companies with gifts for the whole family. But… I am even more excited that one lucky winner will get to take home the whole gift guide in our Epic Christmas Giveaway. Enter at the end of this post!

Feel good about buying this beautifully designed 100% rainproof Rain Anorak by Faire Child for the kids. The Montreal based company creates rain gear for kids from 100% recycled material. The clothing is ethically made and each piece of the clothing can be traced back to where it was fabricated. Even the buttons are traceable! This well thought out Anorak packs into itself for easy storage. Buy the Rain Anorak for $118.00 USD here.
Leggings by Girlfriend Collective
Mom will not be disappointed with these 100% recycled leggings from Girlfriend Collective. The thoughtful design is flattering for all shapes and sizes and they are made ethically overseas. I also love that their models come in all shapes in sizes truly reflecting “real” women. Buy the Leggings fr $68.00 USD here.
SolarPanel 5+ by BioLite
The Solar Power 5+ by BioLite is perfect for the family or parent that heads out on weekend adventure. It gives the extra security to charge satellite devices, phones and headlamps while out camping. The attached battery stores the power so there is no need to use the power right away. The battery can also be pre-charged ahead of time using electricity from home. The sun dial on the battery ensures that the panel is set up to receive optimal sun energy. BioLite is on a mission to tackle energy poverty around the world. Buy the SolarPanel 5+ for $79.97 USD here.
Leaf Leather Shoulder Bag by Tree Tribe
The Leaf Leather collection from Tree Tribe is perfect for the mom or dad that loves to sport unique sustainable fashion pieces. Each wallet and bag is handmade from real Teak leaves. The simple design varies based on the Teak leaves that are gathered to create each piece. The Leaf Leather Shoulder Bag is perfect for everyday occasions and actually came on our van life trip I liked it so much. The best part is that for every item purchased on the Tree Tribe website 10 trees are planted. Buy the Leaf Leather Shoulder Bag here.
Wylo and Co.
Support local and choose the cute Burnt Orange Drop Sleeve Longline Top from Wylo and Co. The Calgary based clothing company is owned by two mamas that handmake each item.
