Gift Guide: For the Green Girl

Being more “green” is something I’ve become more focused on this year.  For the earth, for my health… it’s important.  The gifts in today’s guide will wow the recipient… and help her to be a bit more eco-friendly.  So many fun treats… I’m really big into green beauty right now and have included a lot of luxe yet eco-friendly products… but there are so many other great options… organic cotton, a water-powered clock, jewelry made from recycled materials.. I could go on.

 From top Left::  Hand to Heel Salve // Highlighter (my fave, thanks to Victoria) // The most AMAZING lavender candle.  When it’s done burning, you can compost the vessel in your garden // This Chinti & Parker top is cute… and 100% organic. // Khepri bag (made from 100% vintage / recycled materials) // Tarte Lipsurgence Set (the absolute best, and such a great deal.) // Recycled Glass Birdfeeder // Bedol water powered clock // Alex & Ani Recycled Brass Bangles // Rahua Hair Mask + Elixir (super luxe and  all natural) // Ilia Stick // Earrings (made from recycled sterling silver) // Sprout lip balm set // Anything Earth tu Face – I love the face balmskin stick, and body butter.  (Seriously, the whole line is amazing… I bought those three products and am hooked.  Prepare for pure organic bliss.) // Lilac Salve

    Thank you thank you thank you thank you for this gift guide! One of my best friends is a (glamorous) vegan who is incredibly green which is awesome except that it makes it EXTREMELY hard to buy presents for her! So this is absolutely perfect!

    I’m loving your blog and adding it to my blog roll on my blog! I hope we can exchange links!


    PS: If you have a second I’d love it if you could come and enter my giveaway with Rent the Runway!

    Green products are the best. I find that green skincare works much better on the skin too. That candle looks like it’ll smell incredible.
