The wedding season is on our doorstep so we need to start thinking about gifts and where better to start than at Zankyou.com? Just as our list is flexible and fun, it also lets you choose the gifts that best suit you, and if you’re an environmentally friendly couple, you might want some green gifts that will keep your whole wedding experience sustainable?

We’ve put our green thinking caps on at Zk and have come up with the following suggestions. Feel free to add any of your thoughts so that we can build a big green list of Zankyou gifts!

Thinking of starting to grow things in the garden? How about some gardening equipment, some plants or even a top-of-the-range compost bin?

A sustainable night out – dinner at a local restaurant, serving local food, including the price of public transport to get there.
A season ticket for annual train travel – might be a bit cheeky, but getting someone to pay for your train trips will mean you’ll think twice about driving everywhere.
Two bikes and cycling helmets – this will get you fit and mean you contribute less to traffic pollution.
Locally-produced items, like locally woven designer homewear by Melin Tregwynt, or a hamper of local food products put together by a local delicatessan.

An organic or locally-sourced meal is an eco-friendly gift

A contribution to an organic holiday (+ public transport costs, of course!) – check out organic credibilities at The Organic Directory.
Carbon offsetting – remember you can pay for carbon offsetting any trips the bride and groom might take through the Carbon Fund wedding calculator.
