Gifts that make a difference — 2018

Throughout our days, there are little things that can bring a smile, add wonder, or make us a little bit more mindful about our world.

We’ve curated a list of a few of our favorites to help with holiday gift giving.

Skincare & Beauty

Our skin is our biggest organ, but we’re not always as careful about what we put on our body, as we are with what we put in it. Our favorite companies for skincare and makeup are Annmarie Skin Care and BeautyCounter. Both utilize clean, natural, transparent ingredients and both companies are actually working together to advocate for legislation and regulation that will bring more transparency to the beauty industry.

We love everything we’ve tried from both brands, but some of our favorite products include,

Annmarie Aloe Herb Facial Cleanser

$57

Annmarie Purifying Mud Mask

$42

Annmarie Minerals Foundation

Sample Kit — $20

BeautyCounter Lip Gloss — Fig

$29

On-the-go

Having the right items in your bag, can make even the most hectic day feel more comfortable and mindful.

Books

We’ve had some favorite books this year that have added to our wonder about the natural world, and educated us about our history with land and our soil. Our top three recommendations are:

Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants

Kiss the Ground: How the Food You Eat Can Reverse Climate Change, Heal Your Body & Ultimately Save Our World

Farming While Black: Soul Fire Farm’s Practical Guide to Liberation on the Land
