2019 Holiday Gift Guide: Unique gifts to give

Some people are easier to shop for than others. If you’re having a hard time finding just the right gift to express your sentiments, this unique gift guide can help solve your shopping dilemma. I’ve compiled my 2019 Holiday Gift Guide sharing items I would love to receive and items I personally use.

Disclosure: Many of the companies listed below in the Holiday Gift Guide provided products to review. All opinions are my own.

Earth Shoes; Calgary Quebec

These Earth shoes are honestly the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever slipped my feet into.  This gorgeous Calgary Quebec bootie looks great with everything.

EARTH<SUP>®</SUP> Calgery Quebec Sandal, Main, color, COCO NUBUCK LEATHER

This heel height is perfect for everyday wear and I can honestly say the comfort and style are pretty amazing.  I especially love supporting this eco-friendly company since they are mindful of our beautiful planet. They have partnered with Trees for the Future, and each time you buy a pair of Earth Shoe, they plant a tree to help make a difference.

WildWood Eyewear Ontario Sunglasses

I adore this eco-friendly company and their sunglasses are all made from natural and recycled materials. The classic style Ontario frame is their first Rx compatible frame, and is made from natural oak wood. The Ontario frame comes with  UV400 rated TAC Polarized brown tinted lenses,  providing full UVA and UVB protection.

The frame features two discreet screws at the top, which can be undone allowing your optometrist to switch out the lenses for prescription ones. They come in forest green and brown and they literally look great on everyone!

cariuma sneakers

Cariuma IBI Stone Grey Sneaker

Often, sustainable or ethical shoes are more expensive, but Cariuma offers classic and versatile sneakers at an affordable price point. I absolutely love their first ever sustainable Bamboo Knit and Sugar Cane EVA shoe, the IBI bamboo sneaker. I have them in stone grey and they’re the most lightweight and comfy shoes I own.  Plus they are super stylish and are perfect for our travels.

For me, the best part about Cariuma shoes is they are 100% carbon neutral.  That includes the shoe production AND the shipping. When you decide to make a purchase from a company, you’re actually funding this company to continue doing what they’re doing, and I’m thrilled to support Cariuma.

Sterling Silver ID Bracelet from ONecklace.com

I love love love the chunky and modern look of this personalized ID bracelet custom crafted in sterling silver. I love to wear this bracelet with my every day running around town outfit for a little pizazz, or I can wear it to an event for a fashion statement.  It looks lovely stacked with other bracelets too. I chose to personalize mine with ‘MOMMA’ so my kids are always close by.

holiday gift guide 2019

KrochetKids provides life-changing job opportunities to women in need. Each product is personally signed by the woman who made it, and you can visit her online profile to learn more about her. I love to shop with conscience. This beanie is so stylish with the perfect amount of slouch, and it’s a true pleasure to support this company.

Roseberry Nature Skin Care Products

My signature scent is rose oil.  I absolutely adore the light, feminine, floral smells, but aside from the gorgeous scent, there are many health benefits associated with rose oil. For a start it boosts self-esteem, confidence, and mental strength, while efficiently fighting depression. Rose Oil is also known to calm redness on the skin, moisturize and is filled with anti-aging properties.  I usually buy my rose oil online at rosesbg.com, since they have a fantastic selection of rose oil, skin products and rose oil parfum.  I plan to continue to use rose oil for all of the health benefits mentioned, but also because I simply love the scent.  And it makes me feel happy.

Nailvana.LA Nail Polish

People pay attention to hands. Nail polish makes me feel more poised, confident and I can easily spruce up my outfit with an on-trend color. The Nailvana.LA line focuses on the anti-aging, healthy treatment of nails and skin. The brand is founded on the principle belief of striving to achieve natural beauty. NVLA products are vegan, cruelty free and are 8-free of the harsh chemicals used in nail polish products. They have many on-trend colors, and LOVE their cuticle oil which penetrates quickly, actually works and does not leave my fingers feeling greasy.

The Ovo 150GT Portable Steam Iron & Garment Steamer

2019 holiday gifts ovo steamer

This is possibly the best travel iron ever made. It heats quickly and the steam feature works incredibly well. The OVO 150GT is a portable iron and garment steamer combined and is extremely compact and light. This portable iron travels light and takes out wrinkles without taking up space.
