I'm a strong believer in flexing your buying power in alignment with that which you value. Every dollar spent is a vote for what kind of world you want to live in and during the holidays, when the average person's spending goes up approximately $700, it's even more important to shop wisely.
So if you’re looking for an excuse to let family and friends know what you’d put on your list for Santa but you feel a little self-conscious, remember this: Making your list helps those shopping for you get to know you more, and understand why you want to support the brands that you do. It also saves your gift-givers time, energy, and money and during these busy and tough economic times, that’s a gift in and of itself! Last but certainly not least, getting another “white elephant” that you end up dumping in the trash adds to our landfills.
For myself: Any of the luscious skincare concoctions by Marie Veronique. I rarely treat myself to good face and body lotions but when I do, I’ve noticed Marie Veronique products really make my skin look good.
For my son: Even though he’s ten, when he saw this Hape Bamboo Solar Powered dollhouse on ecomom, he went crazy and said he wants it for all of his Star Wars Legos characters to use as their basecamp!
For my husband: My man is such a music buff he goes crazy when he can’t get any tunes. This Solar Powered Crank Radio will bring him lots of smiles on surf trips.
For our family: We’re big on art projects, especially on cold winter nights. There’s just something so special about cuddling up by the fire with hot mugs of cider, and an endless supply of paints, crayons, and art supplies. I love Clementine and Eco-Kids great array of options for inspiring creativity!
For my friends: Don’t tell but I’m treating everyone to soaps and candles by Lucia! They’re beautiful, simple, and practical all at the same time and with natural scents such as Fig and Wild Ginger, they’re always a hit.
