The holidays are just around the corner!

Aside from all of the festivities, one of the things that always excites me the most is finding that perfect gift for all of my loved ones — something I know they’ll actually appreciate and not just toss in the closet.

But it’s also super important to me that I spend money on products I believe in — products that better our lives or world in some way.

Luckily, it’s totally possible to give thoughtful gifts to everyone on your list AND spend money on products that are in line with your personal values! Here are my favorites for this year…
