A collection of my current 2019 favorites to inspire meaningful gift ideas for you and yours this holiday season. Happy holidays!
1. The Book of Awakening: ($12)
Reading from this book daily has brought so much value to my every day life. Mark Nepo draws from many traditions and voices to offer insight on what it means to be alive and live well. Each dated entry with thoughtful prose is follows by a mindfulness meditation exercise that inspires deep self reflection and calm. I love to do a reading each morning to start my day mindfully. The perfect gift for anyone, anytime, anywhere.
2. Purely Pecans Sweet Potato Pecan Butter: ($10)
Pecan butter is so good! This alternative nut butter is made with 100% natural ingredients without any added oils or refined sugars in four drool-worthy flavors. My current favorite is the sweet potato because–I mean, sweet potato in pecan butter? Need I say more? This is the perfect gift for any nut butter addicts on your list.

3. Snake Plant: (N/A)
This year I became a self-proclaimed plant mom. After moving I bought several low maintenance plants to add some green to my living space. The snake plant is by far my favorite. It’s hardy and thriving despite the fact that I don’t really have a green thumb. Put a bow on the pot and gift a snake plant to anyone new to indoor plants.
4. Tom’s Womens Esme Boots: (~$100)
I’ve always been a fan of Tom’s classic shoes, but have you ever tried their boots? I stumbled upon these while searching for a boot that was both fashionable and super comfortable. Friends, I walk in these everywhere. They’re comfortable enough to walk in for hours while giving you a bit of height. They look great with skinny jeans or under flares! Check them out.
5. Synergy Organic Clothing: (~$40+)
I discovered Synergy Organic Clothing sold through Whole Foods this past year and quickly fell in love with their organic cotton clothing made with recycled poly and low impact dyes. The clothing delivers casual comfort and effortless ease while being eco-friendly and ethically sourced. I feel good about buying and wearing these pieces and love supporting this brand’s mission! My current favorite piece is Pause Cardigan. Give the gift of a gift card or pick out your favorite piece for someone you feel confident in sizing and dressing!
6. Madewell Ceremony Circle Ring: ($18)
I don’t wear a lot of jewelry on a regular basis but I’ve always been a ring person. This year I added this unique circle ring to my collection and I receive compliments on this year wherever I go! It wears well and has no tarnish or discoloration after months of wear and love. It’s the perfect affordable piece for the jewelry lover in your life. I like the gold finish but it also comes in silver!
7. Decoy Pinot Noir, Sonoma County: ($19)
I think I initially picked up Decoy Wine because I was drawn to the duck on the label, and I’m so glad I did. All of Decoy’s wines are smooth with superior taste at an affordable price. I always have a few on hand at home to open when entertaining; it’s my go-to wine I count on to be a crowd (and host) pleaser. Gift a bottle for a wine lover, your white elephant, or secret Santa!
Making the change to cleaner hair care? EvolvH products are vegan, gluten-free, paraben-free, and cruelty-free while achieving salon performance. My favorite is the UltraShine Shampoo & Conditioner to balance moisture, add nourishment and deliver brilliant shine. Try gifting these minis as a stocking stuffer– they’re the perfect size to sample before committing to the full bottle!
Use Flora15 for 15% off!
If you follow my recipes you know that I use Hu Kitchen Chocolate in all of my desserts! So you should know that they have clean candy, too. These vegan and refined sugar-free chocolate covered candies without questionable ingredients are my latest obsession. My favorite is the Cashew + Vanilla Bean but you can’t go wrong with any bag! Perfect as a stocking stuffer for a chocolate lover or candy connoisseur!
10. Avocado Green Pillow: ($79)
When I made my recent move I decided to give my bedding an upgrade. If you haven’t checked out my review of Avocado Mattress, give it a click to read up on my love for this vegan mattress made safe, non-toxic, and eco-friendly with organic cotton and latex! And every good sleeping situation requires good pillows. These non-toxic pillows are made from GOLS organic certified latex and GOTS organic certified Kapok fill, wrapped in a GOTS organic certified cotton cover for a medium-plush feel. This is the perfect way to introduce friends and family to a safer greener sleep!
11. Vegan and Gluten-Free Red Apple Lipstick: ($23)
One of my “life goals” was finding a lipstick that I actually, you know, liked wearing. Vegan and gluten-free lipstick?! Check. These colorful tubes are also non-GMO, paraben-free, toxin-free, and cruelty-free, and fragrance-free. There’s a shade for every mood, and you can build up color opacity to create a natural or striking look. My favorite shade is Barcelona! Perfect as a stocking stuffer for a makeup junkie.
12. Pyrex 10 Piece Ultimate Food Storage Set: ($63)
I always get excited about plastic-free food storage. Just me? But truly, I rely on these containers on a daily basis with recipe leftovers, meal prep, and food transportation. The Pyrex® glass is dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator and oven safe and the silicone lids keep your food air tight! This is a great utilitarian gift for the whole family!
13. Petit Vour Beauty Box: (starts at $15/box)
My love. This monthly subscription box comes with several non-toxic, cruelty-free beauty picks that you are customized to your personal wants and needs. I love getting these samples because they allow you to try things in small quantity without purchasing a full size. This box has introduced me to some of my all-time favorites. Gift several months to anyone interested in cleaning up their beauty routine!
14. Wildway Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Granola: ($9)
I’m obsessed with this granola, guys, and that’s saying a lot, because I’ve tried quite a few ‘nolas over the years. This one is unlike any other on the market; all oil-free, gluten-free, grain-free, and sweetened with dates. Gift a bag or a variety flavor pack for the foodie on your holiday list! It’s excellent on yogurt, oatmeal, smoothie bowls, or by the handful. My current favorite flavor is the Dark Chocolate Sea Salt.
15. Solid Core New Member 2-Class Package: (~$35)
In March of 2019 I started my Solid Core journey and I was instantly hooked after I walked out of the studio hobbling and humbled. I’m now almost 100 classes strong! So, what IS Solid Core? It’s an intense full-body workout combining pilates and strength training through 50 minutes of slow and controlled resistance training. If you’re looking for a strength workout that consistently challenges but your mind and body, this is the class for you. Use FLORAVINO for $5 off your first 2-class package in the DMV!
16. Start Today Journal: ($20)
Ah, journaling. I’ve bought so many planners, journals, and goal-setting tools over the years, and they’re all collecting dust somewhere on my book shelf. Except this one. I love this one because it’s simple, straight-forward, and effective. By starting every day by setting your intentions you can make great strides in achieving your personal and professional goals. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to live a more intentional life and dream big. Gift for all of your big dreamers and goal getters!
