With a little over a week away til Santa’s arrival, the last minute touches are being applied to houses everywhere: Cookies…Wrapping…Decorating and Stocking Stuffers.
Stuff your loved one’s stocking well with these adult picks (Shopping for the kiddies? Check this article out: 5 Merry Toys for your Little One)
Nubian Heritage Soaps
In 1992, fresh out of college without jobs, Rich and Nyema embarked on a personal mission to produce high quality bath and body products utilizing all-natural ingredients and ancient healing philosophies from around the globe. Today, they are still obsessed with fair trade ingredients, community commerce and culturally authentic products. The soaps are also free of cruelty (no animal testing). Shop for amazing scents like Honey & Black Seed, Goat’s Milk & Chai, Indian Hemp & Haitian Vetiver or maybe some festive Peppermint to wash the holiday spirit all over you. These bars can be found at the Hip & Healthy Kids storefront in the Beauty & Bath Section.
Libre Tea Glasses
Canadian-owned Libre Tea makes a stylish, healthy and eco-friendly way to brew a cup of tea. The travel tea infuser is made of glass on the interior wall and a poly Tritan exterior for durability. The top includes a stainless steel tea filter which allows you to brew tea leaves in the glass itself or in the twist off filter top. How beautiful are these glasses displaying the flower and leaves of these herbal brews? Shhh…don’t tell my family, but they are getting hooked up with these on Christmas day. Shop for Libre Tea Glasses here.
Karma Non-Toxic Nail Polish
Come celebrate the holidays with festive fingers. Karma Organic Nail Polishes contain no toluene, formaldehyde or DBP. They are also chip resistant, durable, and with no harsh odors, they are available in glossy, matte and glow-in-the-dark shades. The non-yellowing formula is cruelty-free (not tested on animals). Packaging is 100% recyclable. Come see the complete write-up of why non-toxic nails are important here. My picks for this holiday season are Snowflakes on 5th, Midnight in Times Square and obviously Christmas Morning (all pictured below). Shop for these (and more colors) at the Hip & Healthy Kids storefront in the Beauty & Bath Section.
These eco-friendly headphones are handcrafted from reclaimed wood. The wood also gives them a warm, natural sound. Imagine kicking back with a cup of hot cocoa, wearing these cherry wood Troubadours, jamming to U2’s Christmas Baby Come Home or letting your head twist to the man who can make a guitar sing like no one else, BB King singing Merry Christmas Baby. Every purchase made also provides a donation to the Starkey Hearing Foundation to help restore hearing to a person in need. Shop for your LSTN headphones here.
