Happy holidays to all, no matter which is yours! We put together the gifts at the top of our lists for our loved ones (and, of course, ourselves!) from some of the founders, creators and artisans we look up to most. Perfect for littles ones and those of us who are adulting, our list only features heart centered and mission-driven brands, dedicated to quality, premium ingredients and honoring our earth’s ecosystems above all. Because when we support our planet, to give is truly to receive!
Another biodynamic brand we love, Onda Wellness creates nourishing CBD Oil and Hemp Extracts, trailblazing the regenerative hemp farming and whole plant approach to the CBD industry. We suggest their Biodynamic Hemp Tincture, made with hemp and olive oil that was grown and processed in a Demeter Biodynamic Certified® farm and manufacturing center.
Ideal for the holiday season (or any time, really) the tincture is enriched with nutrient-dense compounds and phytocannabinoids, which have been shown to improve mood, calm anxiety, and regulate stress levels. Save 15% off when you purchase for the first time off their website, ondawellness.com!
Pleni Naturals shares our core value and belief that exposing our kids to healthy foods in any way we can (and a variety of ways!) is of chief importance throughout their childhood. Little ones are always observing and mimicking us, after all, including how we eat and care for our bodies. That’s why Pleni set out to create natural skin care products with organic ingredients using premium fruit and vegetable ingredients like broccoli, cucumber, apple, raspberries and papaya!
New to the brand or looking for a sweet gift for a little one in your life? We recommend the Children's Gift Set, which contains their beloved kid’s bath time essentials that leave the skin feeling clean, moisturized and nourished from nutritious fruit and vegetable ingredients.
Have your planet-respecting wine and drink it too! This is one of the many reasons we love Frey Wines, biodynamic natural wines sourced from small farms around the world. They are America’s first organic and Biodynamic winery, a third-generation family-owned and operated vineyard located at the pristine headwaters of the Russian River in California. Through minimal manipulation in the cellar, they allow the wines to express the authentic character of the local soils and climate, crafting wine without added sulfites (a synthetic preservative added to most other wines -- even wines made with organically grown grapes!).
We suggest gifting (a loved one or yourself!) a membership to their Wine Club, a wonderful way to enjoy a selection of handpicked wines, hear of new releases, enjoy complimentary tastings, and other special winery events, all with a 20% year-round discount. The New Moon Membership, for example, features 4 bottles per shipment (containing 2 white wines and 2 red wines based on seasonal releases) with typical shipment dates in April, September & November.
Kiss The Ground
What do we love most about Kiss The Ground? Let us count the ways! They are spearheading increasing awareness about the extraordinary benefits of healthy soil and tangible actions to heal the earth. Their programs educate millions of people across the globe and provide pathways to catalyze a movement for everyone to participate. They also directly support farmers and their adoption of regenerative agriculture and cultivate leaders who can implement change at a community level.
Earlier this year, they also released their incredible eponymous film that reviewers are lauding as the one movie to watch this decade. Forbes has described it as, “the key to combating climate change” and the New York Times heralds it as, “inspiring a rare sense of hope.” This holiday season, give the gift of regenerated soil & hope by donating to the organization in your name or a loved one’s, or gift their soil advocate training, which you can take at your leisure. Pro tip: They also have complimentary regenerative gardening and composting courses on their site!
