A Wholehearted Holiday: Gifts Under $50

Today I’m sharing my ethical gift picks under $50 – small tokens of appreciation for friends, colleagues and anyone in between.

1.  Pact Holiday Socks 

This three-pack of organic cotton, holiday themed socks are a cozy treat for anyone on your list. This link takes you to the women’s, but they also come in men’s and kid’s sizes.

2. Osea Sea Vitamin Boost

This is my #1 skincare product, and you’ve probably seen it on my ‘gram a few times! This refreshing spray, which features pomegranate extract, is a beautiful color and instantly hydrates dry, tired skin.

3. Everlane Pima Mico-Rib V-Neck

This v-neck tee is the perfect feminine base layer. It features an open v-neckline that dips in the back – a detail that makes it just a bit more special than your other long-sleeved tees.

4. Windblown Jewelry Staple Earrings

These sleek, minimal earrings are 14k gold-filled and perfect for everyday. I just got a pair myself and have been wearing them non-stop since! Handmade in North Carolina.

5. The Curated Closet

This book offers insights and exercises to help build a thoughtful, minimal closet. Bonus? It looks really pretty on your coffee table.

6. P.F. Candle Co. Black Fig Reed Diffuser

I love my P.F. Candle Co. reed diffusers! The scent is noticeable, without being overwhelming, and the apothecary-style jars match pretty much any home decor style. My pick for the holidays is the black fig scent, which has notes of evergreen, clove and tobacco.

7. Dinadi Stina Half-Mitts

These mitts combine design and function. I have smaller hands, so the tech-gloves that supposedly allow you to text are always too big on me and leave me fumbling when I type. These mitts cover your hands while leaving your fingers out – yay! Hand-knit in Nepal.

8. Tradlands Bandana

I’m really into bandanas, and this one so cool. Tradlands partnered with illustrator Jordan Grace Owens on these quirky and boho bandanas. Available in rust, night and moon.

9. CDMX Lagos del Mundo Maceta Planter

CDMX works to bring the exceptional, talented, passionate, innovative designers and artisan makers of Mexico City to the US market. I love this little terra cotta planter as a gift for a colleague or minimalist friend. Just add succulent. I found this while browsing MadeTrade, an online marketplace for ethically-made goods.

10. Mickey Lynn Druzy Hair Pin

I love these hair pins, handmade in Atlanta, Georgia. The pin is gold plated and you can select your druzy shape and tone – dark, light & bright, neutral or purple. It’s the sort of thing that I think a gift recipient would love, but wouldn’t necessarily buy for themselves since it’s a bit fancy!
