Stocking Stuffers | A Howliday Gift Giving Guide
The season for giving us upon us! When I was a kid, I used to rip through my stocking so I could get onto the bigger presents that were wrapped under the tree. But now that I’m older, the stocking is my favorite part…a fancy sock, full of lots of little treasures, yes please! Below you’ll find some of my favorite little gifts to give and to receive. Happy Holidays!
1. Journeyman, Natural Spray Deodorant $18 | I love smelling like I just rolled off the forest floor. On days when I can’t make it to the woods, this deodorant brings it to me, with notes of smoky cedar and cypress. Though it’s advertised as a men’s deodorant, I use it just as often (if not more than) my husband. It’s natural + Aluminum Free and Paraben Free. Not a fan of the spray? No worries, they have it in stick form too! 2. Margins, 2017 Moon Calendar $20 | This is a staple, yearly present in our home. Beyond helping us clock our full moon crazy, it is a stunning piece of art to have hanging on the wall. Created by Jeremy Rendina in Ojai, CA, these prints are made using soy and water based inks and Free-Trade, tree free papers when possible. 3. Orgaid, Organic Face Sheet Masks (6 sheets) $42 | Who doesn’t like a mini at home spa? Face Sheet Masks are all the rage, but Orgaid is one of the first U.S. companies to integrate high-quality organic ingredients – free of the bad stuff – into a sheet mask. They leave my skin feeling beautifully hydrated and happy. 4. Bite Beauty, Amuse Bouche Lipstick $26 | ‘They say’ you consume approximately four pounds of lipstick in the average lifetime. Given the amount of toxic chemicals used in most lipsticks on the market, that’s a lot of unnecessary ingested and absorbed chemicals. But fear not, companies like Bite Beauty have you covered! Their line is free of parabens, sulphates, and phthalates, so feel free to re-apply all day long. Utilizing 12 edible oils and pigments and a citrus flavor made from fresh-pressed citrus, you’ll wonder why you ever used anything else. 5. Palo Santo Supply Company (10 sticks) $16 | Burning Palo Santo is one of the greatest grounding tools that I keep in my magic tool kit. I light it in the morning when I’m sitting quietly at my altar, or during the day when I need a quick tune in. Palo Santo, with its rich citrusy-cedar scent, is a wood grown in South America, used as a healing modality for centuries. I love Palo Santo Supply Company because they’re a big proponent of sustainability, partnering with farmers that invest in reforestation and eco-friendly packaging. 6. Spirit Speak, Tarot Deck Reversed Edition $43 | I first fell in love with this deck when our Monthly Medicine channel, Lindsay Mack, used them in her October spread. Hand drawn by Mary Elizabeth Evans in Oakland, CA, the cards are a good deck to start dipping your toes into Tarot Reading. 7. Jiva Apoha Atman (Spirit) Body Oil $70 | Our soul sister Angela is a magical and tireless creator as well as certified Ayurvedic practitioner who creates some of the most medicinal and wonderful smelling products in the world. This is one of our absolute favorites. 8. Electric Rose Beachy Strappy Bralette $69 | The beach is not the only place to don one of these made-in-LA bra tops. It’s also for a long walk or hike, attending your favorite yoga class, or just relaxing. We love this husband/wife duo and the integrity with which their full line is made.
