Holiday Gift Guide

This time of year I am incredibly grateful (more so than usual) for the world wide web. Rather than fighting for a parking space or digging through messy shelves, I prefer to chill with a glass of wine and my laptop and accomplish my shopping via the internet. So, just for you, we’ve highlighted some of our favorite ideas for presents for the kids and grown-ups in your life… and you can buy them from the comfort of your own cozy couch! Happy Holidays!





Soapbox Soaps

When you pick up an all-natural item from Soapbox Soaps, you’re not only investing in yourself or a friend; with each purchase, a bar of soap, a year of vitamin supplements, or clean drinking water is provided to someone in need. Great for stocking stuffers, and make sure to check out their bundles for easy hostess gifts.

PACT Leggings

PACT leggings are great because they maintain their shape all day long and are super soft and comfortable with a perfectly cut rise (just below the belly button), and a wide waistband that doesn’t do that annoying roll-down thing. If you know any yogis (or wannabe yogis) these are perfect!
