I personally love gift guides! Whenever I'm looking for something for a specific person and I know some of their likes, I scour the internet for gift guides! These are just suggestions that I have curated myself. I don't receive commission from any of the brands mentioned in this blog post, I only linked the products below to make it easier on you! Happy Holidays!
Handcrafted in small batches using 100% soy wax and essential oil-based scent. Non-phthalate, non-toxic, eco-friendly and luxurious.
Elate makes beautiful products that are zero-waste! You can buy refills for foundation, blush, eyeshadow, and more! Create your own makeup palette and feel good about what you're putting on your skin! You can get Elate Cosmetics at Green Vanity downtown Kelowna, from their website, or from Portia-Ella (basically the Sephora for clean beauty). My personal favourite from Elate is the Universal Cream! I use it as highlighter!
Basically any bath bomb will do but if you buy from Lush you can guarantee that it won't come wrapped in plastic! You can bring your own container or they will give you a paper bag to take it home with you! If you haven't yet checked out their entire Naked line you should!
4. Farm Bound Zero-Waste Gift Card
I cannot wait for this store to open in downtown Kelowna! They are scheduled to open in February 2019! They will provide zero-waste options for basically every aspect of your life! I am most excited to be able to get bulk olive oil, shampoo and conditioner, condiments, and a full apothecary (a.k.a natural pharmacy!). Check out their website for more information!
Not only are bath soaks super good for your body, Saje Wellness is completely cruelty-free, vegan, and natural! If you get the small packs of bath salts, they come in a recyclable package. The larger ones come in a plastic bottle unfortunately.
Everyone knows about S'Well I'm sure, but did you know that they aren't just a water bottle brand? S'Well is founded by a woman and her intent was to help reduce ocean plastic! She also donated annually to charities related to clean water programs!
I love the market bags so much! She is always coming out with new designs and patterns! I use the bags to strain almond milk, fill with bulk items at Bulk Barn, take produce home in, and so much more!
8. Onyx Lunch Container
Very very obsessed with my Onyx lunch container! It has two compartments and absolutely zero plastic accessories! It stays shut, no leaks, and you can even buy little stainless steal condiment containers that fit in perfectly! The combinations are endless and I genuinely get excited when making my lunches now!
9. Solid Perfume
Solid perfume that smells like absolute heaven made locally in the Okanagan and its wrapped in compostable material!
Thank you so much for reading this Gift Guide! I hope you were able to pick up some neat ideas for Christmas this year! If you have any comments or suggestions I would be happy to hear your feedback! Happy holidays!
