Looking for a different guide? Browse them all HERE.

This year’s natural gift guide has been a true labor of love, and below you’ll discover a whopping 137 creative, toxin-free gift ideas for everyone you love.

This year, we tried to find gifts that were good for the planet in addition to being good for the person receiving them. We also have highlighted products from Black-owned businesses that we adore.

A few of the gifts below are available in our online store, where we will cover shipping if you spend $50. The rest of the items on our list are available online, and are all sold by companies we love and shop from ourselves. Many of these companies are already running Black Friday sales, so the prices you’ll see below will often be steeply discounted for the holidays. (If you purchase using the links below, we may earn a commission for the referral. Thank you for supporting our work in all the ways!)

Please comment below with your own ideas for non-toxic, natural gifts. I assume I am not alone in planning to celebrate the sh*t of of the holidays this year–even if that means doing it inside my own house with just my immediate family!

Stay sane,

Maia, Founder & CEO

P.S. Here is last year’s list, for 99 more natural gift ideas.

P.P.S. Because of COVID, shipping times are very delayed. In our store, we are sending packages out (via Priority Mail) the same day the order comes in, or the following day at the latest. In normal times, this means you’ll have your package in two days, but right now we are finding that it can take up to a week. Please order early this year, from us and from everywhere else, too!
