A Guide to Useful + Ethical Gifts | C&Co.® Handcrafted Skincare

The holiday season is upon us. I hope that means more time with family and fun trips with less work for each of you. We have many clients that visit our shop and ask for our gift recommendations so I have compiled my favorites.

I feel like most of us are inundated with enough “stuff” so I try to keep my recommendations to useful + consumable, unless a  particular need is to be met.

1. Basic Essentials | soaps, moisturizers & lip balms - Everyone needs to bathe and hydrate, these are great basics that anyone could use. We offer a plethora of scents to please even the most picky. Check out our Gifts $30 and Under gift guide for our list of essentials.

2. Olive Oil & Vinegar - This encourages your family to make healthy meals at home with this great everyday consumable duo.

3. An indoor composter for folks who live in small city spaces or for those who might have bears eating their outdoor compost.

4. If you want to give a super useful gift both Pact and Coyuchi offers the most amazing organic linens. Who doesn’t love new towels or sheets?!

5. Check out the Good On You app to find ethical brands that align with your beliefs. Give gifts that support ethical business practices + clean ingredients.

6. Donate to a charity in someone’s honor. My uncle donates to his favorite charity every year on my behalf and I love it!! Raising awareness for a cause that is close to your heart is a very sweet gift. This is a great one for those of us who are lucky enough to have everything we could ever need or want in life.

Happy holidays to all!
