I know it’s the 11th hour for a gift guide, but really when I make these, I make them for you to buy gorgeous things for yourself don’t I? I have collected a bunch of my favorite useful, beautiful, truthful things to share and have linked them to (mostly) small sites, shops or makers (or us!) Treat yourself, or get some great ideas to grab for the new year that is upon us.
Wishing you a peaceful and healthful solstice and festive holiday season!
Disclaimer: I personally make a commission on the Beautycounter products but would recommend them even if I didn’t!!
