It’s that time again: time to get organized and figure out what to give the loved ones on your list. We’ve compiled a list of holiday gift ideas from our favorite sponsors; ones that we’ve personally tested and are excited to recommend (along with some deals!).
Be warned – you might just find something here that’s a good fit for you as well! :) Without further ado, here is our list of Favorite Holiday Gift Ideas for 2017!
The gift that keeps on giving (i.e. growing!)
Back to the Roots’ has a fun line of organic indoor gardening kits for everyone on your list. From mushroom kits, windowsill herb kits, tomato planters or table-top aquaponic ecosystems, these kits are great for teachers to enjoy at home or in their classrooms! So much better than another bag of cookies, don’t you think? ;) I have also gifted these to my kids, and Lisa has as well – her daughter LOVED watching how quickly her mushrooms grew. And what I love is that they are 100% guaranteed to grow – if the product doesn’t grow as described, Back to the Roots will replace it free of charge. Perfect for those of us who weren’t born with a green thumb (raise of hand).
Morrocco Method Dry Shampoo
Full disclosure: I don’t wash my hair every day. No, instead I wash it every-other; pretty much always have. And after many conversations with friends, I’ve realized that I’m not alone. So when I first heard the term “dry shampoo,” I thought – hmm – a bit of an oxymoron, but I’m intrigued. Unfortunately, the conventional version left me disappointed, as the chemical-laden aerosol sprays left me looking more like I was fighting a bad case of the flakes instead of having *clean* hair. Yuck! Then Morrocco Method sent me a bottle of their Dry Shampoo to try.
I was immediately drawn to their ingredients. The main ingredient, bentonite clay, helps absorb excess oils; I’ve used it in the past as a face mask and knew it works well. Aloe vera, charcoal, arrowroot and turmeric are also ingredients that you’ll find within – no random large-word chemicals you aren’t familiar with. The best news is, it really works! You simply flip your hair over (this is how I do it) and sprinkle some on. Rub it in with your fingertips, and brush your hair with Morrocco Method’s boar brush (my favorite) and voila – your secret is safe! No wash that day, but no one can tell. This is a gift to grab for yourself (it’s okay!) ;) and also for anyone else on your list who doesn’t want to wash daily.
