The following is an ethical gift guide, hand picked and packed with goodies that are great for everyone no matter the occasion or season. The magic of giving an ethical gift is the unique and meaningful story that goes along with it.
Not only is there a quality you can feel in these products, but the one of a kind journey it makes, that has a real impact on the lives of the hands that crafted it. My passion for ethical products happened to sprout from a gift given to me, as the story goes for so many other people.

1. Yuhme Water Bottle
Single-use plastics are so last year. Yuhme’s reusable water bottles are made in Sweden from sugarcane, are CO2 negative and for every water bottle sold they give 6 months of clean, plastic-free water to someone in Central African Republic.
Check out all the chic styles of this slick, flip-top water bottle. Give the gift of hydration and help someone across the world in need for half of the year!

2. Beauty by Earth
Every product that Beauty By Earth makes is non-toxic, all-natural and organic. They use NO parabens, chemical fragrances, phthalates, alcohol, soy, corn, gluten, petroleum, or any other fillers for that matter and almost everything is totally vegan.
Beauty By Earth is also a cruelty-free brand and everything is made right here in America. They have such a wide variety of products, there is bound to be something for every Body you know. I am crazy about their self tanner bundle.
Panda is a men and women’s accessory brand that carries eco-friendly and sustainable Bamboo Sunglasses. Every pair of Panda Sunglasses purchased gives the gift of vision to someone in need.
In addition to their bamboo sunglasses, Panda also expanded their products with a collection of Portuguese Cork and Mosu Bamboo wrist watches. They are eco-friendly, vegan, made from 100% sustainable materials, and for every timepiece sold they give the gift of education by making a donation to Pencils of Promise on your behalf.
4. Keap Candles
These non-toxic candles are hand poured in New York and smell so natural and surreal I’m always hesitant to burn them, knowing eventually it will be gone. Instead of paraffin, Keap Candles are made with pure coconut wax that is sustainably produced. It also makes them clean and slow-burning.
The candle jar itself was made to be repurposed. It easily wipes clean after your final burn to be given new life as a drinking glass or make-up brush holder. Keap also donates 25% of their net profits to SolarAid, to bring light to those without access to the electrical grid.
I hope you enjoyed this Ethical Gift Guide, Let me know what gifts you give and how they’re received!
Thank you for reading along,
Until next time…
