The holiday season is right around the corner. Whether you are looking for small gift for your friends, or you’re trying to fill up stockings these Earth-conscious gifts are a great addition to your holiday shopping.
1. Body Butter - $10 & up
Butter is the perfect description for this product. It goes on smooth, leaves your skin feeling soft and nourished, and it smells divine. This product is all natural and vegan. The 2 oz jar is the perfect for a stocking, but we have bigger jars too if you want to splurge.
2. Lip Balm - $8 - $8.50
Lip balm that nourishes chapped lips that is all natural, is in a compostable tube, AND gives back to help baby sea turtles. Need I say more? No, but I’m going to… these lip balms are AHMAZING. I took mine to the beach and it didn’t melt through the tube. *I don’t recommend this, but if it happens just know I have done it too.* They leave my lips feeling soft and I don’t have to reapply every 2 hours. Oh and they smell delicious.
3. Candles - $10
A classic gift with a mermaid twist. These are candles made from soy wax in an poured in an aluminum tin. Every scent reminds me of the ocean, summer, and vacations. These are a great gift for the person who always wants it to be summer. *ahem, cautiously raises hand.* Plus, the tins can be reused in so many ways once the candle is burned.
4. Lotion Bar - $7
Lotion that is vegan, plastic free, and palm oil free. These are super easy to use, just pick the bar up and rub it on your skin. It doesn’t leave you feeling sticky but leaves your skin feeling soft. These are not scented, so they are perfect for those of us with sensitive skin.
5. Recycled Crayons - $6 & up
Crayons made from recycled crayons. Whaaaaaa??? These are super cute, and they color like regular crayons. These are made for small hands and perfect for those artistic kids in your life. There are several options in the shop, but both the ‘recycle’ sticks and the stars are less than $10 each.
6. Konjac Sponge - $10
These are a face wash game changer. Trust me. They are made from konjac roots, so they are rough when they are dry, but they get super soft when you soak them in water. They are a great soft exfoliant for your face and perfect for sensitive skin. Each color is infused with a different element that adds extra nourishment to your skin AND each sponge gives back to a good cause.
7. Toothbrush - $8
A practical gift that gives back. It’s a win win! I always had a toothbrush in my stocking growing up. These toothbrushes are made out of bamboo and 5% gives back to a good cause. When you’re done with the toothbrush, break the head off (the bristles are nylon so they need to go in the trash) and compost the rest. Adult toothbrushes are $8 and kids toothbrushes are $7.
Bonus: Buy a cotton travel case to go with it. They are washable, reusable, and incredibly cute. Only $5!
8. David's Toothpaste - $10
A perfect match to go with the bamboo toothbrush. This toothpaste tastes and works like traditional toothpaste but is in a metal tube instead of plastic. David’s is intentional with the ingredients in their products, the tube is recyclable, the keys can be returned, and it is made in the USA.
9. Kitchen Loofah $3 - $7
These dish scrubbers are a super cute edition to any kitchen. Perfect for the practical person in your life, a young adult just getting settled in their first apartment or anyone in between. They are made from the loofah plant and dyed with vegetable dyes. They won’t scratch your pans and are compostable when they are used up. From personal experience, these last as long as any other sponge I’ve bought from the store, but I’m a single person, so your mileage may vary.
10. Swedish Dishcloth - $7
Another practical, but oh so useful product. These dishcloths can replace up to 17 rolls of paper towels. They can be used to wipe down counters, wash dishes, clean windows, and so much more. When they get dirty, they can be tossed in the dishwasher or washing machine and used over and over again. They last 6 to 9 months depending on use and can be composted at the end of their life.
