Torill’s Table’s mixes are filled with high quality ingredients like almonds, ground flax, and whole grains, so you can “fuel those you love with wholesome, balanced goodness”! And lots and lots of syrup, à la Elf.

Lace Brick Design

We’re experts in the art of buying a gift that can also be stolen for personal use (what? It’s smart!), so we’re definitely going to be hitting Lace Brick Design for a campfire blanket. If you gift one to bae/your dog/your BFF you’re pretty much guaranteed a snuggle or two, so grab an LBD gift at Liz & Lottie, Steeling Home or online.

Bloom Body Co.

Is the gift of self-care the best gift of all? Arguably, yeah. Fill your friends’ stockings with handcrafted, non-toxic bath and body products (with gorgeous reusable packaging no less!), and they’ll be feeling ultra relaxed by the time 2019 comes around.

clear float spa

Since you technically can’t wrap a float pod under the tree, let the lovely team at clear float spa handle the gift of relaxation for you with their holiday gift card promo: 2 floats for $99!! The float pod allows bodies to be 100% weightless as stress from the outside world drifts away (like an astronaut floating in outer space)! Can you think of a better present?
