This holiday season, you can finally give gifts that are major hits, not so pricey, and good for the environment—all at the same time. We carefully curated a list of gorgeously green, gift-worthy items to make this season's stocking stuffers sparkle at any budget.
Who doesn’t relish the soothing and calming ritual of a cozy hot bath, no matter where you travel? Here’s the gift of hydration and inner balance. EO’s set of bath minis contains all your essentials for a warm night in. EO is known for using the purest French Lavender essential oil available, and these bath minis are formulated with the highest quality essential oils such as grapefruit, and geranium.
These 100% all natural, Dead Sea salt crystals luxuriate, nourish, and relax tense muscles. We love the three limited-edition holiday scents: Sweet Cinnamon Silk, Vanilla Dream, and Chocolate Wishes, and the packaging is even sweeter: designed exclusively for AHAVA by Israeli pop culture icon and sculptor David Gerstein.
This is a fantastic and incredibly useful present for anyone feeling the holiday blues. The kit comes with a wide range of essential oil roll-ons created to address common maladies such as restless sleep, low energy, and waning willpower. The packaging is bright, colorful, and contemporary, but the age-old formulas stem from old recipes using ginger, sandalwood, geranium, lavender, and chamomile.
Before we cover up with mittens and gloves, give your nails an eco treat this season with SpaRitual’s stunning set of nail polish in holiday metallics. The 3-Free line has stunning wearability, and we’re partial to Bismuth, a multifaceted khaki-rose hybrid, as well as the steely gray of Titanium.
Vapour’s 3D holiday set is a steal for the eco-obsessed. The three-piece 3D set contains a bold red lipstick, a mauve iridescent glaze, and a creamy ebony eye pencil. With its richness of pigment, it’s hard to image the line is purely plant oil-powered.
At first glance of the price tag, this product looks like it’s a splurge, but Indie Lee’s powerhouse trio of body products will last your loved one till the next heat wave! Containing full sizes of Indie’s Body Balm, Daily Moisturizing Oil, and delectable Body Scrub, these easy-to-digest ingredients are the perfect pick for anyone into holiday pampering, and you can just as easily gift them separately too.
