It’s mighty tempting to stuff those stockings with gag gifts and cheap plastic junk but I recommend skipping the bacon flavored candy canes this year and instead picking out gifts that are better for your loved ones and for the planet. Here are a few small but mighty stocking gifts to consider:
Juice Beauty Reflecting Gloss
I’m a huge fan of this luscious, lip gloss made with antioxidant-rich berries, minerals and sweet agave. My fav color is Fig – but they are all super pretty. Get one of each color in the Reflecting Lip Gloss Collection for only $36. (Also, be sure to check out their 12 Days of Beauty sale for other great deals.)
Wild Ophelia Chocolate Bars
You can’t go wrong with Wild Ophelia! This up and coming chocolate brand uses all-natural and many organic ingredients sourced from small farms and food artisans around the United States. And with this many varieties, there’s sure to be something to please everyone! I’ve seen these at Whole Foods and a few local gift stores. Use the store locator to find some near you.
Green Toys Race Cars
Vroooom! These adorable little race cars from Green Toys are made from 100% recycled plastic milk containers.
Global Friendship Bracelet
Pear Tree Greetings Personalized Note Pad
Printed on 100% recycled paper, these note pads from Pear Tree Greetings come in a bunch of cute designs (this one’s called Retro Wallpaper) and can be customized with the recipients’ name.
LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls
A must for people who still use disposable dryer sheets. Just toss these all natural wool dryer balls into the dryer to create constant motion, allowing clothing to dry quickly and without chemicals. And for those who prefer scented laundry, add a few drops of essential oil (I suggest lavender) to each ball.
Itzy Ritzy Reusable Snack Bags
A waste-free lunch staple, these handy reusable snack bags now come in winter prints as well as many other cute styles.
