1. Reusable Water Bottle

Help save the environment and spread holiday cheer at the same time by giving the gift of a reusable water bottle! Our favorites are the steel or glass bottles, as we try our hardest to omit as much plastic as possible, but any form of reuse helps!

2. Bath & Body Products

The holidays are a perfect time for everyone to relax and get off their feet at any moment they can, so help out the people you love by gifting them with soothing bath & body products that can help them take a load off. Think natural soaps, oils and lotions that can be used to pamper and treat the ones in your life that deserve a break.

6. Succulents

If you’re in need of a gift for someone who’s got a bit of a green thumb, how about giving them a little something, well, green! Succulents are a perfect gift to spruce up the office, living room or any other space that could use a little life. One of the best parts about succulents: they’re relatively low maintenance, so almost anyone can take care of them!

7. Essential Oil Diffuser

There’s a reason why spas and other relaxing spaces smell the way they do, and that reason is essential oils. With a unique essential oil diffuser and a few drops of oil, any space can turn into an instant spa or center for relaxation and peace needed after holiday craziness. One of the perks of this gift: some diffusers come with a set of oils!

9. A Journal

In a digital age, the art of writing things down with a pen or pencil and paper has seemed to escape a lot of people even though it’s been proven to help improve memory, accountability and goal tracking. This holiday season, encourage someone you care about to hold themselves accountable for their goals, happiness and memories by gifting them a classic journal. There are so many fun ones for all sorts of purposes!



10. Spices

As world travelers, this is probably one of our favorite gift ideas. Spices have the ability to transport people to another part of the world and seriously one-up those Buzzfeed Tasty Recipes! Give the gift of flavor this year to the home-chef in your life!
