Holiday Shopping Guide

Christmas is almost here and I have to admit that as a family, we do not go crazy with gifts. We try to focus on personalized or hand made items that are meaningful and useful and we love stockings! Or should I say, I love stockings? As a child I remember being most excited about opening my stocking. Santa always filled it with the most thoughtful items and each one was something I loved! Here are some ideas for stocking stuffers...or just some great gifts!

StoLat Organics
This one is personal for me as the creator of all these yummy concoctions is my best friend, Amy. I always refer to her as Martha Stewart and Bob Villa rolled up in one - she can build your house and then decorate it and cook the most delicious meal to welcome you home!

Click here to read her story of how StoLat Organics began and how they are using biofuel to heat the facility and water! StoLat Organics is committed to bringing you the best all natural and healthy alternatives to today’s abundance of commercial products. They'll even help you find replacements for products you are using or skin care issues you have - just ask them!

Some of my favorites include the Pink Opal Lip Shimmer with SPF 15, Shea Butter and any of the soaps. Receive a free Clearly Cool Lip Balm with each purchase over $20 and only $1.99 shipping - so order some goodies today!
 One Simple Om
Sammy Brown Goodrich is not just an amazing mom, friend, yoga teacher and positive human being, she is an inspiration for living your life in gratitude, honesty and being ever present in the moment. Oliver and I have both been fortunate enough to take Sammy's yoga classes on Cuttyhunk and I really want to share her One Simple Om website as it aims to heal and unite the world one Om at a time. This simple necklace reminds those who wear it of the universal vibration that connects us all. Each Thai silver charm and clasp ring are hand hammered by the Karen Hill Tribe of Thailand. Each necklace is hand strung and knotted on brown non-animal cord by Sammy. She donates 5% of each purchase to Women for Women International.
 Love & Lollipops Designs
We all need a little whimsy in our lives and these notebooks are deliciously cute! If you live local to Culver City you can find them at Lundeens or just send Maggie a note through the website.

Purely Elizabeth
Yummy mixes for baked goods that are made with alternative, nutrient rich flours, superfood seeds and organic ingredients. They are certified vegan, sweetened with organic coconut palm sugar (an unrefined, nutrient rich, low glycemic sweetener). They are also free of refined sugar, dairy, gluten and contain no artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, preservatives or GMO's. Talk about a guilt free treat!
