As the holidays get nearer it's time to finalize that shopping list. We always like to choose gifts that have a positive impact in some way. Purchasing handmade pieces from artisans that focus on eco-friendly, sustainable practices is a simple way to say "I really care" when you give a gift. Check out our gift guide here to see our full list of gift-able pieces. Below we've done the work for you and picked out pieces for tricky giftees.
Co-worker who just started at your office - So far she seems lovely, but you are just getting to know each other. A candle is a sweet gift that doesn't require you to know the person that well. Anyone will appreciate a handcrafted soy wax candle scented with natural essential oils. We particularly love the floral notes in this Geranium and Rose candle.
Family friend - You've known this person forever, but they've always been closer to your parents than to you. Show you care with the Clary Sage & Grapefruit Bath Salts. These bath salts not only detoxify your skin and increase circulation, but they are packaged in beautiful glass bottles that she can display proudly in her bathroom.
Your health conscious cousin - She's obsessed with yoga, loves kale in every meal and is always looking for natural alternatives for everything. The Green Glow Mask combines all of her favorite super foods; spirulina, matcha and spinach with french green clay. She'lll appreciate that you really know what matters to her!
Your trendy sister-in-law - She's always reading Vogue and showing up to family dinners with the latest fashion statement. Right now minimalist, architectural jewelry is super stylish. Show her that you know her tastes with a beautiful handmade powder coated bracelet or earrings in the trendiest metal, rose gold.
Friendly locals - Maybe its your barista, the woman who always says hi to you when you stop in for a salad at your local cafe or the friendly people at your post office, It's always nice to show your appreciation for their kindness throughout the year. Ditch the standard Starbucks gift card and get them a gift card with a little more meaning. Let them choose from bath soaks to spoil themselves or stylish gold necklaces that fit their exact tastes.
