This year I thought, “Why not share a gift guide of all my favorites from this year?“, so I’m doing just that! Lots of the below mentioned companies gave me a special promo code for all of you to take advantage of.
Even though I know this is being shared about 3 weeks later than I intended, it’s better late than never – I totally apologize for the delay. As long as you order this week you should receive all your orders from these companies before Christmas, however all the promo codes are good till the end of the month (unless otherwise specified). If you have no desire in receiving product in a specific timeframe then no worries.
Once again I’m sorry for the delay with this gift guide, but I’m so incredibly excited to share all the picks that I adore most! I hope you all will too.
I’ve broken down this guide into sections based on price range, stocking stuffers & main gift ideas. There’s something here for any and everyone on your list this holiday season.
I kept it all revolving around cruelty-free, eco-friendly items that promote wellness in all aspects of life.
So let’s get started!
Cuppow Drinking Lids & BNTOs ($8.99 each)
Colors: Mint, Orange, Clear, Blue, Pink
Cuppow is a company I have mentioned and supported for years. All of their products are tried and true, I back them up 100%! I own more mason jars and drinking lids then anyone I’ve ever met. I will happily offer you a drink (you can choose the color lid you like best!), anytime you visit me.
I’m including Cuppow because they’re truly a wonderful company, backed with the greatest customer service I’ve ever dealt with.
If you love mason jars as much as I do, then you need drinking lids and it doesn’t stop there. They also have these handy BNTO adaptors so you can meal prep in your wide-mouth jars AND reusable coffee filters PLUS they sell my absolute favorite mason jar – The Tall Boy (featured in my smoothies & juices eBook)!
Mason jar hoarders, meal preppers & the coolest kids ever.
My love for glass straws is ever-growing, I recommend them to any and everyone I know/meet. They make such a lovely gift too! I love keeping mine in a vintage mason jar as the centerpiece on the counter in my kitchen.
Plastic straw users, eco-friendly individuals, & creatives.

Zabana Essentials ($3.49 – $19.95 each, depending on product)
Tons of products and scents to choose from
All year I’ve had an ever-growing love for Zabana. I’ve mentioned them countless times in my monthly favorites, on Twitter and Instagram. They are my absolute favorite when it comes to good, clean products that do the job and smell absolutely fantastic. I don’t think I’ve had a single scent from them that I didn’t love, which is fantastic to me.
My personal favorite items from them are the Lavender deodorant, Green Tea lip balm, Spearmint candle and Tangerine bath bomb.
Perfect for: People that love things that smell awesome and want to be clean, while smelling awesome.

S.W. Basics ($4.00 each, 4 different flavors)
Lip balms, beauty products for face and body
Perfect for: Chapped lips.
I have so much admiration for Emmy’s! I also have a slight addiction to their chocolate chip and mint flavored macaroons. All of their products are raw vegan, organic, fair trade AND so tasty you’ll wish you bought more.
(Be sure to check out my Instagram in the next week for an exclusive giveaway I’m throwing for them)
Perfect for: Coconut lovers, a hungry sweet tooth & my dad.
Postal Pix ($.29 cents)
4×4 Instagram print photos, tons of other sizes
I planned on making a fun banner to hang, but I completely forgot to buy twine. So that’s my bad… but I made each letter photo using the app Afterlight and then uploaded all my photos to Postal Pix for printing. Doesn’t get any easier than that!
Perfect for: Cell phone photographers, lazy printers (an app to upload + home delivery, need I say more?) & DIYers.
Who doesn’t love a beautiful handbag that’s functional AND cruelty-free?! Pixie Mood is my go-to for handbags. They’re super affordable, incredibly high-quality and their color combos are on point.
I’m so excited to use my new cork tote bag for traveling, I had no idea cork bags even existed!
Perfect for: Fashonistas, purse hoarders & me.
I’ve been using an Eno hammock for years. I’ve actually slept outside in this while camping, it’s just that comfortable.
I believe that being outside and admiring nature is one of the purest forms of mental clarity. You have the power to be one with nature and bask in its glory. Okay, that may sound a tad over the top – but I’m serious! I find so much peace when I’m lounging around in my hammock. I can’t recommend it enough!
Perfect for: Campers, hikers, outdoorsy people and anyone with two trees.
