1. Queer in the World Tote Bag
The Jonathan & Karamo & Antoni & Bobby & Tan Eco Tote Bag is the perfect present for your queer pal if they’re fans of the show Queer Eye.
Queer Eye, like RuPaul’s Drag Race, is a popular show that members of the LGBT+ community enjoy watching. The community has adored Jonathan, Karamo, Antoni, and Bobby, the great group of LGBTQ hosts since the program first aired.

After all, what better way to incorporate pride into your daily life than with a stylish LGBT tote bag?
2. Pals Socks
Pals Socks, an LGBTQ+ and women-owned firm, is the place to go for unique mismatched socks. These socks are both amusing and cute, with strange animal coupling motifs (think dragons and unicorns, T-rexes and triceratops).
Because they understand that LGBTQ+ people make the best eco-friendly shopper, Pals Socks make their products with non-toxic colors and recyclable textile materials. Plus, they’re really colorful, which attracts many queer people.
The socks are available in both big kid (adult) and child sizes, so you can be the cool uncle/auntie. Also, they occasionally offer to Buy one and get 50% off on their products as well.
3. We Are Fluide Makeups
There’s no need to be concerned: ethical cosmetics are now available. We Are Fluide is a vegan, cruelty-free, and paraben-free cosmetics business that caters to people of all skin tones and genders.
They also collaborate with LGBTQ+ organizations and donate to them, and their biodegradable, ocean-friendly glitter is manufactured from plant cellulose and comes in three vibrant colors: gold, silver, and pink. It’s ideal for putting on a show!
4. TomboyX Clothes
TomboyX began with a social purpose to provide us with comfortable gender-neutral underwear and has now extended to include shirts, socks, swimsuits, and much more. You won’t find any of that body-shaming ‘one size fits all’* nonsense here: they have sizes ranging from XS to 4X in a variety of shapes and designs, all of which are gender-neutral and wonderful.
In addition to all of this queer fashion goodness, they avoid using toxic chemicals and implement a water-recycling scheme in their production process, ensuring that both you and your conscience look clean and stylish. You can also use one of our Tomboyx coupon codes to get yourself a good price when purchasing their products.
5. Queer Candles
We found that Queer Candle Co. is an excellent place to shop if you want eco-friendly and queer candle products.
Each candle has a visual depiction of the aroma (mostly plants, but occasionally dry fruits or salt pebbles)! Their soy wax candles burn longer and cleaner than paraffin candles, and the smells are fresh, non-toxic, and authentic thanks to their meticulous attention to detail when selecting components.
As a queer couple-owned business, they utilize a portion of their revenues to raise awareness and amplify the voices of members of our community, particularly trans women and nonbinary people of color.
6. Automic Gold Accessories
Is there a more badass present than solid gold? Automic Gold carries everything from beautiful rings and delicate necklaces to bold, furious statement pieces if you’re feeling flush/generous with your gift-giving.
All of their gold goods are ethical, sustainable, and manufactured entirely of recovered gold. They also come in a variety of sizes and designs. You may also personalize it for that extra loud, extra unique statement.
7. Bambootique Home Products
Have you ever questioned why your toothbrush isn’t as fashionable as you are…? Look no further; Bambootique UK has everything covered.
These cute brushes have a biodegradable bamboo handle, no plastic, and even come packaged in a paper box! To brighten someone’s morning, give them a splash of color and eco-friendly deliciousness.
Aside from stylish rainbow toothbrushes, they also sell razors, menstruation cups, and reusable straws, among other eco-friendly home items.
8. Otherwild Zero Waste Products
Are you looking for a one-stop store where you can acquire a variety of presents for various people? Look no farther than Otherwild, a half-retail shop and half-graphic studio brimming with zero-waste items.
Otherwild, in addition to its environmental objective, raises awareness and funds a variety of LGBT and social justice organizations. As a result, I think it’s one part business, one part design studio, and one part activist… I’ve lost track. However, all the segments are fantastic; go check them out.
9. SparklesNest Eco-Jewellery
Who says being environmentally conscious doesn’t imply being environmentally fabulous? SparklesNest, which sells eco-friendly hand-made resin jewelry, key rings, and coasters, should suffice if accessorizing is your reason for existence (*chuckle*).
For those of you who appreciate a good un-moulding film, they un-mould a lot of their items on their Instagram for you to enjoy the delightful, unpeeling pleasure. Mmm…
10. AlsoComesInPurple Bee Plushies
Bees are super important for the environment, but they’re also cute as hell. AlsoComesInPurple’s design is just so adorable to look at, with the product’s theme surrounded by bees. Any kid or queer will instantly get excited when they’re given such a present.
They’re machine washable and come in a rainbow of queer color combinations. As you can see, this is one of the most colorful eco and queer-friendly gifts that you can purchase.
