Greener, Safer, Better Stocking Stuffers for Grownups

 

Greener, Safer, Better Stocking Stuffers

Psssst! Did you know Santa sometimes leaves treats for the grownups when he drops by the house? Not necessarily a stocking full, but a little treat or two. Maybe it’s only when you’ve been extra good. I’m really not sure. All I know is that it’s happened once or twice at our house over the years.

Has this happened at your house too? Or perhaps you’re doing a little stocking exchange with friends or people at work and need some little gifts that will impress but won’t break the bank. Here are a few yummy, eco-minded treats to consider:

1. Soapbox Soaps

There’s lots to love about this soap company on a mission – every bar purchased means a bar of soap for a child in need. Plus the shea butter based soaps are long-lasting and come in 8 wonderful fragrances.

2. Videri Chocolate

Fair trade, organic chocolate – need I say more? YES, because these bars are exceptionally smooth and awesome tasting. Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt is my personal fav! Beautifully packaged with 2 bars inside a 3-oz box.

3. Handmade Bead Bracelet

Handcrafted by artisans in Nairobi, Kenya, these bracelets feature glass beads hand sewn onto an adjustable leather strap. Three unique color combos available.

4. Fig + Yarrow Lip Tint

Keep those kissers well moisturized and looking rosy with this lightly tinted lip balm. Organic plant butters are delicately flavored and scented with pure wild rose and vanilla oils. Packaged in a pocket-sized tin.

BUY IT*

5. Nourish Snacks

Healthy but mucho-delicious snacks with goofy names like Monkey Love, Cinn-sational, Holy Habanero and PB Jammin. My taste buds can vouch for how yummy they are! Order gift collections or a la carte.

BUY IT

6. Tori & Howard Candy

Hard candy like you’ve never tasted before: pink grapefruit, blood orange, d’anjou pear and more! All USDA certified organic and colored with real fruits and vegetables. Purchase by the tin or in an assorted gift package.

BUY IT

7. Scented Soy Votive

Non-GMO soy wax + eco certified essential oils + recycled glass = a sweet-smelling stocking stuffer for anyone on your list. Choose from Palmarosa Ylang Ylang, Lemongrass or Rosemary Lavender.

BUY IT*

8. Justin’s Nut Butter

Whether you go for plain peanut or fancy chocolate hazelnut, I’ll warn you – Justin’s nut butter is addicting. Individual serving packets make great stocking stuffers but you may want to splurge on a whole jar for yourself!

BUY IT*

9. Weleda Travel Lotion

One of my all-time favorite hand lotions in the perfect size for travel or purse. Set of 4 includes Pomegranate, Wild Rose, Sea Buckthorn and Citrus. Split up for stocking stuffers or gift the whole set.

BUY IT*

Greener, Safer, Better Gifts for Dudes

Guys can be so hard to buy for right? When they have a hobby, they usually buy whatever they need for themselves. Beyond that, they don't often speak up about what they might want.
