Canadian Green Gift Guide

Canadian Green Gift Guide

I know that things have been a bit crazy this year. 

Okay, maybe very crazy. And maybe getting your loved ones Christmas gifts has slipped your mind. Or maybe you’ve just been so crazy busy that you just haven't had the time to shop. Either way, you’re probably in urgent need of some inspiration right now.

Well, you’re in luck!

I’m going to appear on the Ottawa CTV Morning Show on Tuesday, December 22nd to cover their Canadian Green Gift Guide segment (sneak a peek here 😉). So if you’re looking for gifts that are fun and nature-inspired and also support small Canadian businesses, then check out these 8 Green Gift Ideas.

  1.     Fullmoon Serum Mini - Graydon Skincare

As mentioned in one of our previous blog posts, this serum is the ultimate girlfriend gift and stocking stuffer. This retinol alternative face serum soothes, smooths, corrects, and protects your skin for a more radiant complexion. Formulated with clinically-proven superfoods, its weightless formulation helps to shield your delicate facial skin from everyday pollutants and relieves redness due to inflammation.

  1.     Lavender Essential Oil Incense - Province Apothecary

Imagine standing in a beautiful lavender field in the middle of the summer. Picture the sunshine and the beautiful aroma that envelops you. Feel the inner calmness. Now, you might not be able to see a lavender field, but this incense is the next best thing.

Look effortlessly in style. This super cute lip kit is the perfect combo. It includes a lip liner that’s creamy and long-wearing to line or fill your lips and a non-sticky, hydrating lip gloss in a neutral mauve shade.

Combining the sweet, woodsy blend of Texas cedarwood with Madagascar ylang ylang, this candle promotes relaxation and quickly calms the mind. Light it and let its beautiful aroma enhance your space.
