This year, because of delayed delivery times from most stores, we are publishing our gift guide as we go, instead of all at once. (Make sure you’re following us on IG and FB so you find out as soon as roll these out.)

Our guide highlights gifts from brands that are committed to toxin-free, Earth-friendly lifestyles. Some of the gift ideas are available in our online store, where we will cover shipping if you spend $75. The rest of the items on our list are available online, and are all sold by companies we love and shop from ourselves. (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!)

Stay sane,

Maia, Founder & CEO

P.S. Here is last year’s list, for 137 more natural gift ideas.

P.P.S. I doubt you need reminding of this, but here goes: order early this year! 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 all bets are off. I’ve already started shopping!
