It’s that time of year again. The time where you think of all your loved ones and do your best to pick out the perfect gifts they’ll love and cherish. While the intention is to spread joy, if we’re being real, it can be stressful! We’ve all been there – you don’t want to be known as the bad gift giver, and you especially don’t want to put the recipient in that awkward situation either. You want them to experience that “warm glow” feeling that the holiday is supposed to be all about. 

There’s also the hard-to-buy for folk in your life or those that just insist they don’t want gifts. No matter what, we have a gift idea for any loved-one on your list that they are bound to actually use and love. Even better, with all these practical but thoughtful ideas, you’ll be giving them the gift of clean living AND supporting some badass, earth-loving businesses. 

Yep, that means ditch the Bath and Body Works lotion and perfume sets, and wrap up all these clean essentials for this year’s season of giving.

For the Self-Care Gurus + Passionate Homemakers 

We’re gonna go ahead and assume that just about everyone agrees a festive holiday candle is an absolute vibe-setter, especially this time of year. But did you know that your favorite Yankee candle is likely releasing harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde and benzene into the air and, therefore, around your home? Many conventional candles are made from paraffin wax which is a byproduct of petroleum or coal. And you know how we feel about that. 

The great news is there are amazing alternatives out there! Check out Fontana Candle Company’s beeswax and coconut oil candles. They are a family owned company with an incredible story, and they’ve done their research to ensure their formulas are entirely safe and clean. Backed by the MADE SAFE® certification, they are the real deal and smell delightful. 

Pick up a bundle for your mom, your grandma, sister-in-law, or anyone else for that matter. They even have lip balm and bath soaps, so grab those too for anyone who deserves to indulge into some more self-care. To spruce it up even more, you could even include this 100% cotton bath robe and throw in Pit Liquor Lavender + Laurel deodorant and body spray to ensure they’ll have the best tools for deep relaxation. 

For the Eco-Conscious Outdoor Enthusiasts

We all have ‘em in our lives. Whether you catch them hiking 14ers every other weekend or they’re just passionate about responsible, sustainable consumerism and the Earth, we’ve got you covered. Show them you really care by giving them products that reflect their passions! 

Try out Pact for great slow-fashion, eco-friendly clothing. Their organic, fair-trade cotton clothing options are the perfect thoughtful gift and for any sort of outdoor adventure that requires some comfy attire! To accompany them, grab a Clearly Filtered Stainless Steel water bottle for when they're on the go. This portable water bottle filters out 220+ contaminants in water and is third party tested. To top it all off, of course, include Pit Liquor’s Warm + Woody Best Sellers Deodorant Bundle. These scents are not only strong and effective for playing outside and exploring the outdoors, but they are our best earthy formulas and come in sustainable glass bottles. 

For the Determined, Hard-Working Loved Ones in Your Life

Maybe it’s your dad who is always putting in those long hours, or perhaps your best friend who’s an absolute super-mom tackling all the kid’s schedules along with balancing a full-time job – these people never complain but they are all deserving of some appreciation. 

Gift some clean, organic and mold-free Purity Coffee so they always have a pick me up on their busiest days. Feeling generous? Cover a subscription so they never have to worry about running out of their morning cup of joe and even better, they’ll think of you every time they get it! 

To ensure they’re taking care of themselves too, throw in a BeeKeeper’s Naturals Immune Support Spray or any other great health-promoting products on their site! They have clean, pesticide free bee products to support whole-body health. 

Last but not least, you know we had to say it, grab a Pit Liquor Digital Gift Card so they can pick out a scent that suits their fancy. 

By now, you’re already on your way to be named the best gift-giver of the fam. With these thoughtful and clean-living inspired gifts, you’re set for this holiday season, and really any gift-giving occasion. Drop a comment if you’re inspired, or if you have any more clean-living gift-worthy ideas!
