Holiday shopping can be hard. Long lines, short tempers, and sweaty, crowded malls are enough to make you want to just pick up a bunch of Target gift cards and move on to the rum n’ nog. But when push comes to shove, we know you’re going to hunt down the perfect gifts for everyone on your list, and we want to help. Below is a list of ethical, organic and eco-friendly stocking stuffers, all of which you can purchase online and have shipped right to your doorstep!
Alter Eco Organic Fair Trade Chocolate
Everybody deserves a little something sweet on Christmas morning. And when it comes to organic candy, Alter Eco is a brand you can really trust. They’re an environmentally and socially conscious brand whose mission includes maintaining ethical relationships with small-scale farmers to bring you the most delicious tasting organic and fair trade sweets. Now that’s a chocolate bar you can feel good about. They also offer a huge variety of flavors all wrapped up in beautiful, sustainable packaging. We recommend the Dark Mint!
Maggie’s Organic Socks
Your boring ol' sock drawer is about to get a lot snazzier. Maggie’s socks are made from organic cotton and wool, both of which are purchased directly from the farmer at fair trade prices. Maggie’s offers a wide variety of colors, styles and prints — who wouldn’t love these Mom & Baby Tie Dye gift sets?
Badger Aromatic Chest Rub
Play healthy Santa and fill stockings up with natural cold and flu relief products. This Aromatic Chest Rub by Badger is an all natural, cruelty and gluten free alternative to the common drug store vapo-rub. It ALMOST makes you look forward to catching a cold! But not really — that’s ridiculous.
Give the gift of fresh breath! VerMints make fantastic stocking stuffers (if we do say so ourselves!). Fresh breath for mistletoe kissing during the holidays, midnight kissing on New Year's eve, and lots more kissing in 2016. (We like smooches.) This season we're offering big savings on our Holiday Flavor Trio packs. We take care of the card, ribbon, and even the shipping!*
Dr. Bronner’s All-One Toothpaste
Speaking of fresh breath, we absolutely love this vegan, cruelty-free, non-GMO Peppermint All-One Toothpaste by Dr. Bronner’s. It also comes in cinnamon and anise flavor and it’s totally free of synthetic detergents and fluoride. Bam!
Purrfect Play Dog Balls
What would Christmas morning be without a gift for the pooch? These organic wool balls are durable, machine washable, and unlike tennis balls (which are coated in fungicide), these puppy toys are chemical free. Only the best for your dog!
