I fell in love with the Lily De Mai Harmony body oil a few months back and am now a devotee of the line. This travel kit is perfect for the skin care obsessed traveler. 

When it comes to gifting this year, I am putting my energy towards products that are unique, beautifully made and ideally, do good or encourage good. The Still We Rise auction effortlessly meets these criteria. With over 100 items and experiences to choose from and all proceeds benefitting Families Belong Together and Circle of Health International - it will be hard to not find a gift from this impressive list of donors.

"The Herbivore Coconut Milk Bath Soak! I am in love with this completely simple yet utterly luxurious way to reconnect and slow down. Coconut is sacred in so many traditions, and this Herbivore soak checks all the boxes — right down to the company philosophy — to keep me blissfully happy, body and soul."

Hannah, Intern

"I discovered Heather Almeda, a Hawaii-based artist, on Instagram and absolutely fell in love with the colors/subjects of her art. A wonderful gift for anyone who is 'stuff' averse — and a fantastic way to give back to a small business. "

Umbrian_Clay_Mask_30ml_490

"The Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask by Fresh is super versatile and made of Umbrian clay (found in Italy and known for its high levels of silica, a mineral responsible for creating glowing skin). It would be a great stocking stuffer or Hanukkah gift — and I just may buy it for myself!"
