Happy Holidays, good groovers! It's that time again. Give yourself the gift of good karma this season by shopping small, giving gifts that give back and making sure that even the naughtiest person on your list gets a little love. We've categorized our picks based on vibes, of course. Just find the adjective that best describes the recipient and click the image to shop!
Earthy: Under Aurora Apothecary
Under Aurora's fragrances and skin-care products are all-natural, plant-based and sooo soothing. We are especially obsessed with their line of botanical body sprays--an instant pick-me-up for those winter blues! Go for the sampler set. It includes a coconut oil spray and four botanical body scents for only $20. The Poet is our personal fave.
Classic: Willy + Wade
Give the gift of warmth and comfort this winter with Willy + Wade's fleece blanket ($35). It comes in navy, green and buffalo (red), and for every blanket purchased before December 31st, Willy + Wade will donate one to someone in need. Bonus! While you're there, be sure to check out their handmade leather goods. They are nice AF.
Boozy: The Bottle Shop
Columbus is home to so many craft breweries, this one is a no-brainer. If you're new to the scene, gift a variety of beers from The Bottle Shop. This little bar and store is a hidden gem with unbeatable vibes. The lounge is a low-lit, eclectic little haunt, and their store features all of our locally-made faves. For $12.99 you can create your own 6-pack, with single-bottle choices from about 35 Ohio breweries. Santa-approved.
Cozy: Candle with a Cause
We know you're gifting a candle to someone this holiday season. Why not make it a Candle With A Cause? Through December 14th, Candle With A Cause is teaming up with animal advocacy group Lovabull to donate $10 from each candle to a non-profit rescue group of your choice. Not to mention, their candles are made from recycled, safe, and eco-friendly materials. It's a win, win, win.
Sweet: Bake Me Happy
For the love of sugar plums, you have to check out this Merion Village bakery. They specialize in nostalgic treats--homemade pop tarts, zebra cakes, and of course, the creme-filled favorite, the Spongie (Twinkie's better twin). Grab a box of goodies for your holiday party, or your most sweet-toothed friend. You won't even notice that everything is gluten free! Trust us. We love gluten.
This one is for all the intuitive ladies, astrologer-lovers and anyone interested in expanding their connection to the universe. Spellbox contains the tools for beginner witches--think crystals, cards and spells. You can give just one, or subscribe and gift an entire year's worth. 5% of sales benefit In BeTWEEN Girls, an organization that empowers young women through workshops and leadership programs. Pure magic!
Colorful: Creative Babes
The gals over at Columbus' coolest collective have created a badass coloring book (The Totally Stellar Coloring Book) for kids and adults, alike. For each book purchased, an activity kit will be donated to a patient at Nationwide Children's Hospital. Babe-alicious!
Stay cozy, cute, and Columbus-proud with our Signature Columbus Sweatshirt, or one of our new retro-inspired tees. We donate 10% of the net proceeds from select styles to different charities, including Columbus' Friends of the Homeless and Cozy Cat Cottage. Cheers to giving good!
