The 2018 Ultimate Wellness Holiday Gift Guide
‘Tis the season to be mindful. Gift-giving is a coveted art that may be developed with a bit of practice in compassion, empathy, and creativity.
Consider first what your loved one may need, narrow it down to items you would actually want (yes, you), and then give the best idea an imagination splurge — a sustainably sourced version perhaps.

FOR the ethical fashionista
This woman-owned company is celebrating their 10-year anniversary with sustainability in mind. MISCHA has lent their iconic hexagon tote bag print to shoe designer Anastasia Gerali, founder of Alasia Lifestyle to create a tote + sandal combo that any eco-friendly, jet-setting lady would hug a tree for.
Each shoe in the limited edition capsule collection is made-to-order using cut offs from MISCHA’s canvas fabric — a gorgeous way to reduce waste, and is handcrafted by skilled, traditional artisans.
Indulge in up to 50% off November 23rd - 26th.

Shannon Gomez, Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist, created these after a “super sh*tty” time in her life.

Every now and then, she recommends, “cuss, laugh at yourself and be rebellious.”
If life is like a box of chocolates, throw in some massage oil and make it heaven.
