Christmas Day is almost here. If you are like 69% of Canadians…you haven’t finished shopping yet! Here are my picks for the modern hippie…you know, that cool, carefree girl who cares about the environment and social causes but looks hip and stylish while doing it?
FOR THE BEAUTY JUNKIE…AROMABLENDS BY CLINICAL LUXURY BY NATURE
Aside from being a gorgeous modern hippie, Graydon makes the best products. Toxin and allergen-free and vegan, Graydon’s Clinical Luxury By Nature products are the perfect gift for the beauty product lover in your life who wants high quality products but is conscious of ingredients. I particularly love Graydon’s AromaBlends, she has taken the time and effort to really find blends that work in harmony and smell beautiful. www.clinicalluxurybynature.com
FOR THE FASHION PLATE…SWEATERS BY PRELOVED
Preloved IS conscious fashion. Made of reclaimed vintage fabrics into gorgeous, one of a kind pieces, Preloved sweaters make a great gift for the eco-friendly fashion lover. Another really cool option is giving a Preloved gift certificate…this allows the recipient to choose their own gift or have an item custom made. www.preloved.ca
FOR THE FOOD LOVER…COOKING CLASS WITH MARNI WASSERMAN
Marni Wasserman has the best cooking classes in Toronto. A trained Holistic Nutritionist and Chef, Marni’s plant-based classes are a good choice for a new or seasoned foodie. She makes plant-based, whole foods fun and accessible and you will leave class armed with knowledge and recipes that will be beneficial for your health and will surprise and delight those you cook for. www.marniwasserman.com
FOR THE SPIRITUAL SOUL SISTER…MALA COLLECTIVE
I came across Mala Collective a few months ago when I was looking for the perfect Amazonite mala bracelet. Once it arrived, I order a few more for my soul sisters as Christmas gifts. These are affordable, beautiful and fair trade, made lovingly by workers in Bali. These malas are also famous, worn in Eat, Pray, Love by Julia Roberts. www.malacollective.com
FOR THE GOAL SETTER…SPIRITED BY RACHEL MACDONALD + TARA BLISS
This beautiful and inspiring ebook would make a great gift for that far-away friend who is a goal setter, dreamer and believer. Spirited will help the reader find vision and clarity of their goals, wants and dreams which can often times feel outrageously overwhelming. I feel ebooks make great gifts because they are not only portable but sustainable as well. Not to mention for our friends not located near us, sending an ebook is nice, little gift that they will receive on time! www.inspacesbetween.com
Let’s not forget other last minute but thoughtful gifts such as homemade cookies, a gorgeous book, a donation to an animal shelter, a yoga class pass, tickets to an up and coming indie band or spending time together.
What are your go-to last minute gift ideas?
