Quite simply the most luxurious natural cream we’ve found.

Hangover-free wine bottle (or subscription!)

This is what I buy for myself every Christmas, if I’m honest.

Cozy organic set

My sister-in-law gave me this robe last Christmas, and it may have been my favorite gift.

An auto vacuum to clean up (toxic!) dust while she sleeps

I lied. THIS was my favorite gift last Christmas–also from my sister-in-law!

A gift certificate to our curated collection of natural products

I’m biased, but I feel like maybe this is the best gift on this list?

I bought one of these for my boys’ last Christmas, and it’s my favorite piece of art in their room.

Perfect for kids ages 4-8.

The best thing about this cotton rug is that you can toss it in the washing machine.

A bottle that grows with the child

Wooden stroller book

Plastic-free means no worries if this winds up in baby’s mouth.

For a Hostess or Teacher

This game-changing organic EVOO is as much a medicine as it is a food.

Festive natural hand creams

My friend suggested giving this to a teacher with a note that says “you’re hands-down the best!” 🙂

They make matching salt mills, too.

These handmade pillows have a cult following, and for people with neck or back pain, they can be life-changing.
