Happy Holidays everyone! We know that it’s getting down to the wire for holiday shopping, so we thought we’d round up thirteen of our favorite, can’t-go-wrong products to make your last lap of shopping beautiful, sustainable, natural, and best of all--stress-free!
Often, the hustle and bustle of the holidays can make us forget the importance of shopping small and sustainable, as well as ensuring that the gifts we give to bring happiness to our loved ones didn’t come out of mass production or exploitative environments. That’s why we’ve curated this list of products from businesses dedicated to sustainability and natural ingredients, so you can shop guilt-free this year knowing that the gifts you give are bringing joy to you and your loved ones, as well as to the world!
If you want to be absolutely sure that the gift you give won’t just sit on a bathroom shelf, try Conscious Coconut’s organic coconut oil.

Best of all, you can rest easy knowing that this natural miracle is fair-trade certified and USDA organic, and has never met a harsh chemical in its life!

Not to mention that they come in lovely reusable glass jar, and are 100% petroleum & phthalate-free.
So many of us live by our convenient face wipes--they make it easy and convenient to cleanse our face quickly anywhere, anytime. But Ursa Major’s Essential Face Wipes are even better.

What’s better than finding the perfect holiday color for your face & nails? Well, not much, except for maybe finding one that’s organic and made with mineral color for a beautiful, natural finish. The timeless, bright true-red of the nail polish in Beloved will bring an incredible pop of holiday color to your nails.

Give the gift of an uplifting self-care experience with Meow Meow Tweet’s invigorating Sweet Papaya Orange body scrub! Pure sea salt exfoliates and lemon peel & papaya extract bring a glow to the skin--something everyone can enjoy! And can we talk about the adorable packaging?
If you want a stocking stuffer that’s guaranteed to delight, Osea’s White Algae Mask is the way to go. Packed with potent plant extracts, vitamins, and minerals, this age-defying mask is a luxurious way to relax after the busy holiday season.
After the holiday parties, shopping stress, rich foods, and family celebrations, nothing brings cheer like a relaxing detox in the bath! Remy & Rose bath soak in Breeze combines the sweet & invigorating scent of peppermint with wholesome eucalyptus to ease stress, reduce anxiety, and increase circulation.
Have you heard of squalane oil? Well, I hadn’t, until I found out about this amazing face cream from Indie Lee. Unlike most face oils, squalane is suitable for all skin types--that’s right, even us oily and acne-prone gals--one of few only oils with anti-aging benefits! Indie Lee packs a powerful serving of squalane oil into this luxurious mask, making it the perfect choice for a holiday pick-me-up!
Looking for the perfect little stocking stuffer? Enter Hurraw lip balm. We’re especially loving their season-appropriate Mint and creamy overnight Moon varieties. The Mint is unique--not too overpowering, but just enough to leave a sweet minty taste on your lips--and the Moon balm is an incredible overnight lip moisturizer with a soothing vanilla and balsam scent.
Dont leave out your sweet pup from the holiday festivities! This oh-so-adorable squeaker toy from Feed Pet Purveyor is crafted by hand in Montana of super-soft fabric and comes in two sizes for big and small dogs alike! But this is a seasonal toy, so be sure to get it before it’s gone!
If you’re in or around Tampa and haven’t checked out Haden Reid Boutique, you’re missing out! With tons of incredible brands and pieces that are both trendy and timeless, you’re sure to find that perfect holiday party outfit without ever having to set foot in a department store.
Last on the list but certainly first on our minds (and appetites) is another local Tampa favorite: the craveable mini donuts from Little Donut House. Everyone’s allowed to cheat their diet during the holidays, so take advantage of it and stop in to try their delectable holiday flavors, including Red Velvet, Peppermint, and Christmas Sprinkles!
