7 Ideas for everyone on your Shopping List

For the Climate Advocateclimate change mug

This Climate Change Mug can either remind you of the pending sea level rising or taunt your climate change-denying Republican colleague in your morning meeting. Regardless of the purpose, remind yourself of why the climate is worth fighting for.

For the lazy CHIC ladyButter Nail Polish

If you’re lazy like me when it comes to your polish habits (and hate how gel manicures ruin your nails), here’s an eco-friendly answer. I recently tried this Butter Shine 10X Nail Lacquer and am obsessed! This nail polish lacks 8 terrible chemicals including Formaldehyde, DBP, Xylene, and TPHP, but gorgeous color last up to 10 days with a gel-like coating.

If your recipient wants a Philly-themed necklace or ornament, check Philadelphia Independents for Funky Philly themed and locally made goods.

For the Spicey Gentlemansaint lucifer spicePhoto: Facebook

For a man who was naughty or SPICE, Saint Lucifer adds quite the fire to any dish. My book club goes crazy for the #11 Saint Lucifer on popcorn, although the possibilities are endless. Find Saint Lucifer online or at Wegman’s.

Treat Yo’SelfMad Hippie Cream Cleanser

If you have dry skin like me, your hands and face can quickly show it. Once the temperature drops, I need to double my moisturizing routine. Even washing my face can be harsh during the winter months – so I’m super happy to have found Mad Hippie Cream Cleanser. The ingredient list is clean (Jojoba Oil, Algae, Sesame Oil, Green Tea, et al.) and made in the USA in fully recyclable bottles. Available at Whole Foods or online.
