The leaves are still changing, and the air is still crisp, but it’s never too early to think about the holiday season! We’re doing our holiday holistic gift guide a bit differently this year. If you’ve been with us for a while, you know we publish a gift guide for the holiday season every year. Because we receive such positive feedback, we’ve released two gift guides to make sustainable shopping easier! Time to get ahead of the holiday madness and find your crew the best gifts while supporting purpose-driven companies. 

Why are holistic gift guides essential?

Our intention with releasing gift guides is to make it easier for our audience to find trustworthy brands they can support. Plenty of greenwashing brands make it hard for people with the right intentions to find sustainable or eco-friendly companies. We believe our seasonal gift guides have the power to keep honest, sustainable, holistic, eco-friendly companies at the forefront. Let’s make sustainable shopping for holistic gifts easier and more trendy!


Best Dressed
