Welcome to the first annual Green Christmas Gift Giving Guide giveaway hop hosted by Home Grown Families and Just My Everyday Life. Lots of great blogs are participating, so after you’re done reading my post and entering my giveaway, please visit the other participating blogs listed at the bottom of this post.

I love decorating for Christmas, but I have become very conscientious of what products and materials we bring into our house. I would have never even thought about harmful toxins being in my Christmas decorations, but after all of the stories in the last couple years about lead dust being found on artificial Christmas trees, I realized I do need to be concerned about Christmas decorations as well.

So, I was really excited when weeDECOR came out with Christmas wall decals this year. If you aren’t familiar with weeDECOR, it’s a line of high-quality fabric wall decals that are eco-friendly and biodegradable.

This is an important distinction because most wall decals are made out of vinyl.

Vinyl is made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride). It can be made softer and more flexible by the addition of plasticizers, the most widely used being phthalates, which can leach out of vinyl products. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want my children breathing in phthalates or any other harmful chemicals.

That said, please do your research on vinyl and PVC – and the toxic chemicals you may be breathing by using products made from them.

So, in my never-ending quest to find the best natural, eco-friendly and healthy products on the market, I was introduced to weeDECOR. I love their fun nature-inspired images, and the wonderful colors they use. My girls get excited every time they see another new wall decal.

That is why my excitement peaked, so to speak, when they introduced their new Christmas wall decals. I love the simple, inspired Christmas designs they chose – they really make me miss my grandma (who we lost just 2.5 weeks ago due to lung cancer), whose love of Christmas made it what it is to me – a celebration of family togetherness.

Here are a few of my favorites:

This Santa countdown calendar wall sticker is weeDECOR’s clever version of an Advent calendar. You and your little ones can add a present to Santa’s pack every day in the weeks leading up to Christmas. On the big day, your Santa Claus wall decal will appear to overflow with gifts!

This snowman wall sticker will stand tall throughout the holiday season, even after one of those unseasonably warm days. The adhesive backing on our wall decals sticks right to your wall, so you can add this festive décor to a nursery or kid’s room without having to worry about sharp nails within your little one’s reach.

Our reindeer silhouette wall decal is ready and willing to greet your holiday guests this year. Bedecked with bold and bright ornaments (thanks to some help from a little feathered friend), this reindeer silhouette wall sticker would look fabulous in your entryway.

You can see the rest of the weeDECOR eco-friendly, fabric wall decals on the alex+von website.

I hope these images make you smile as much as they have made me smile. And, what’s more? You can get 20% off your weeDECOR order through the alex+von website through December 15, 2011. You don’t even have to remember to use a discount code – how cool is that?

Would you like to win a $25 gift card toward any weeDECOR Christmas wall decal? (well, you could technically use it towards any product on the alex+von website, but this is a green Christmas giveaway and I love these Christmas decorations!)

Crystal, some excellent points about the many hazards inherent in Christmas decorations. Many people do not realize that even live trees are problematic. They are sprayed with pesticides and shipped long distances. Often they are not recylced at all, but just burned or thown in the landfill.

There is no perfect answer, but there options. Small potted miniture evergreens are great choices because they can be replanted or even maintained as is for several years.

Wooden or metal trees made locally are good choices. An interesting company is Festive Tree that makes wooden Christmas trees out of New Hampshire. Very cool! http://www.festivetree.com

Making one’s own ornaments out of fiber, pinecones or seashells are possibilities. Buying fair-trade ornaments made by artisans in underdeveloped countries is also a thing to think about!

Happy holidays.
