‘Tis the season to give… whether that means giving gifts, giving to charity, or just giving love - the holidays are a great excuse to be generous. Even if you don’t feel like donating a big chunk to charity, features like Amazon Smile make it easy to give without changing your habits, and did you know you can donate your unused credit card points? But beyond donations, you likely want to give something tangible to your loved ones, and it’s easy to feel pressured to buy the most gifts or the most expensive gifts. But rather than stockpiling items from online “best seller” lists, try these thoughtful treats from stylishly sustainable (many locally made in Los Angeles) brands.
You’ll find everything from hand painted housewares to a pampering wellness program delivered to your doorstep, handwoven BFF bracelets for you and your pup, plus sweet and salty stocking stuffers worth bribing Santa for.
