I figured that since Alexis shared her top 5 holiday gift suggestions, I should, too! And just like hers, all of my ideas are under $70. Everyone deserves the gift of #truthbeauty! Xoxo Jess
My darling friend, Elana Bowsher, founder of The Right Way, makes beautiful handmade ceramics for the home, and she also happens to work at S.W. Basics. Elana teamed up with the amazing company to create hand-poured ceramic mason jar replica candles with organic beeswax and olive oil. These limited edition candles make perfect gifts, especially because you can use the ceramic jar as a vase or drinking glass after the candle burns! #obsessed
As I am writing this post, I am enjoying a mist of organic tea tree, eucalyptus, and peppermint essential oils from my favorite belonging, my Muji Aroma Diffuser. This gadget will literally change your life. All you do is add some water and a few drops of essential oils (I bought mine at Whole Foods,) and your day will instantly be better. Buy this (for yourself!)
Let's be real...who doesn't love a little holiday glitter? Jane Iredale knows what every girl needs, so she has created the best (and safest!) gold and silver eye shadow sticks for our holiday glam. Thanks, Jane!
S.W. Basics has teamed up with chocolate masters, the Mast Brothers, to create the perfect holiday gift box that includes a handcrafted chocolate bar (Mast Brothers Brooklyn Blend, #duh,) the Mast Brothers chocolate syrup recipe, the famous S.W. Basics organic lip balm flight (including all 4 scents!) beauty butter (ingredients + instructions,) and two silver tins for your beauty butter!) For only $30, this kit is SO worth it.
I had the honor of meeting Ashley Prange, the founder of Au Naturale, at SXSW Eco, and I have been hooked on her products since. Ashley has formulated sexy, glamorous, professional grade cosmetics with the safest and best ingredients possible. This organic lip palette has all the colors any girl could ever dream of for the holiday season, and they are made with the cleanest ingredients ever. They are so good that they are worth listing:
Ingredients: Organic Castor Oil, Organic Theobrama Caco (Coca) Seed Butter, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Wildcrafted Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Organic Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Oil; Hydorgenated Castor Oil, Organic Persea Gratissima (Avacado) Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avacado) Butter, Organic Macadamia (Macadamia) Nut Oil, Iron Oxides, Mica, Kaolin
I hope you love these options as much as I do! They are definitely on my holiday wish list, too :)
