Llamas are hot this year! They’re everywhere – including on our Christmas gift bags. Aren’t those llamas in their sweaters and ear muffs just adorable?
Most of the gifts on this list come from companies with social missions or are made from earth-friendly materials. Plus they will fit into one of the three available sizes of our Llama gift bag– except for maybe the last two suggestions. Read on to see why!
Llama Socks from Uncommon Goods (one of my faves) are available in both women’s and men’s styles for only $10. What a great stocking stuffer — no gift bag needed in a stocking. Otherwise, use a standard.
I just discovered Cotopaxi while working on this post, and I love their mission. Cotopaxi is a certified B-Corp and they donate 2% of their revenue to alleviate poverty. You can read more about their great work here. They also make cool Llama shirts. $23 at Cotopaxi.com T-shirts easily fit into a standard gift bag.
These Llama Tom’s are certainly cute, and for every pair purchased, Tom’s donates a pair of shoes to a child in need. Available in kids, youth and women’s sizes. Most women’s sizes will fit in a medium gift bag. Tiny shoes would probably fit into a standard.
I used to read this one to my kids when they were little. It’s a classic. Available on Amazon or from independent book sellers. Both the board book and the hardback version will fit into a standard bag.
This animated Mama Llama will do the reading for you! Squeeze her paw, and her head bobs and she “reads” Llama Llama Red Pajama! Available from Bas Bleu for $39.95. I think this mama needs a large gift bag.
I’m not sure if this counts as a toy or should be under the decor category, but it sure is cute. Made from organic cotton fabric with organic cotton stuffing, it’s perfect for a baby’s room or as an eco-friendly snuggle buddy. Available for $35 from PitterPatternedBaby on Etsy. They are made to order so there may be a three-week lead time. This pillow is pretty big, so I think a large bag would work.
Llama Household Items
If your llama lover is a little too old for toys, there are plenty of ways to work llama-themed decor into their life.
This “Three Amigos” Llama mug is available for $13.95 from Bas Bleu. A loose mug will easily fit into a standard gift bag.
I love reusable water bottles! I love seeing filling stations at conferences, in airports, and in office buildings. We need to make them more common than plastic bottles. This 25-ounce llama-themed bottle designed by Studio Oh is made of BPA-free stainless steel and will keep liquids cold for 24 hours or hot for 12 hours. A larger size is also available. I saw this one at Catching Fireflies.com for $29.95. Amazon also carries it, but it was out of stock at the time of writing this post. The 25-ounce bottle is 12″ tall and would fit into a standard bag.
Llama pillows are everywhere. I saw a few at Bed, Bath & Beyond, but my fave is this one from Nordstrom’s for $49.99. I’d go with a large gift bag for pillows. There will be plenty of room, and depending on how fat it is, it may be just a tad too big for a medium bag.
If none of the above will do, you can always give an actual llama! I know they’re hard to fit in the car and they’ll probably spit on you, but there are two easy ways to accomplish this goal.
Adopt a Llama through the World Wildlife Fund. For only $25 you’ll receive a photo, adoption card, and species information card, and your donation supports global conservation efforts. Order by Dec. 14 for Christmas delivery.
Gift a llama to a family through Heifer International and you can help a struggling family on the road to self sufficiency. You can buy “shares” of the llama for $20 each or gift an entire llama for $150. No gift bag needed!
