2019 Holiday Gift Guide + Our Favorite Things
Silistraw with Travel Case
Silistraw with Travel Case – Silicone Reusable Straw (Standard Size)
With so many restaurants giving paper straws (or no straws at all!), this silicone straw + travel case is the perfect stocking stuffer!
This reusable eco-friendly silicone straw comes with a travel case and is the perfect solution when on the go. Never be without your straw again! The portable travel case fits right in your pocket, backpack, purse or bag. Smaller than a pack of gum, cheaper than a tin of mints, lasts longer than both and better for the environment! Easy to use and clean, both the straw and carry case are dishwasher safe.
Clever Girl Craftings
“Clever Girl Craftings started in 2018 when a friend asked me to make handmade Christmas ornaments. This ignited my creative flame and I began crafting ornaments for others online. Ever since Clever Girl Craftings has been growing into the shop you see now!”
Clever Girl Craftings has SO many fun items perfect for stocking stuffers; Disney popsockets, ornaments, badge reels & more!
7th Heaven’s EASY peel-off masks!
A gentle, herbal and fragrance-free bubble bath that leaves the skin feeling soft and refreshed. PH balanced and irritant free – key ingredients include:
A subterranean mushroom that grows around red pine tree roots, this mushroom lifts the spirit and is packed with beneficial nutrients.
Used in Chinese Medicine to clear heat and toxicity, this flower also reduces inflammation on the skin*
A culinary grain commonly used in breakfast cereals is used traditionally to suppress the allergic responses in the skin.
Ladies! Say hi to your new routine-simplifying, three-in-one, multi-purpose SPF 40 sunscreen stick for your beautiful self. Meet Lady Face, a tinted mineral sunscreen stick in two sheer, blendable shades. Free of toxic chemicals (and third-party certified the NSF/ANSI 305 organic standard for personal care), she glides on smooth and is infused with rich, moisturizing organic shea and cocoa butter. Plus, reef-safe Lady Face contains the powerful protection of ray-scattering non-nano zinc — but it won’t leave you lookin’ like a ghost. Instead, she serves up glowy color in two perfect shades of you, so you can be your radiant self.
Think of it as a little kiss of sun … minus the sun.
Also? She’s versatile. Both the Light/Medium and the Medium/Dark tints are sheer enough to use on a wide spectrum of skin tones, but are easily buildable for customized coverage.
