Conscious Holiday Gifts

This year for the holidays, I've been a lot more intentional about my gift giving. For me that looks like purchasing only ethical and conscious products, donating in someone's name, and spending quality time doing fun activities.

If you're looking for meaningful gifts that tell a story, below I've included my favorite ethical and conscious gift ideas. But also consider spending more time with your loved ones and gifting them something fun that you could do together: like an art or cooking class, a spa day, a basketball game, a weekend trip, or dinner out at their favorite restaurant! People don't want more "stuff" these days-- we have enough of it. Plus there is a push for less consumption and being kinder to our planet. So when at all possible, give experiences as gifts. And when you really want to give a tangible gift, make it a meaningful one :)
