2020 has been challenging, so it would be ok if you and your loved ones were choosing not to spend money on gifting this year. But if you are looking for an intentional gift for someone you care about, or perhaps yourself, I put together a list of some of my favs. Supporting small businesses who create products intentionally with the wellbeing of the collective in mind is the way forward. Check out these brands whose products or services are unique, ethical and sustainably made.

Catori Life – Ethically & Socially Conscious Jewelry
Catori Life is a company based in the US with a mission to make jewelry that supports the healing & restoration of our planet, and everyone on it. Their unique pieces are hand crafted with a lot of intention, using only recycled metals. With each purchase, Catori plants 20 trees and donates a portion of the proceeds to ocean conversation and social justice groups. The company is also transparent about how the treat- and pay- their employees, which is a loud statement against the fast fashion industry and unethical outsourcing of labor.
Catori pieces are minimal, elegant and stackable- plus you’ll be supporting a business that is leading in minimizing ecological & social footprints, making them the perfect gift. The necklace I’m holding in the photo is the Serpent Amulet Necklace.

BahhGoose – Sustainable & Ethical Fashion Brand
Another company with a sustainable edge is Bahhgoose– a Canadian owned ethical fashion brand. Bahhgoose is designed and hand crafted in Canada, in partnership with Balinese and Australian artisans. By offering fair wages and only producing small batches of custom pieces, this company ensures their business practices are both ethical and sustainable. These efforts go a long way to empowering artisans and helps to preserve their culture.
Bahhgoose clothing is made from natural fibers, primarily cotton, making their pieces breathable and extremely comfortable. Their tailoring ensures each item looks chic on all body types, and their designs are timeless. They also offer custom sizing, which is a huge game-changer for petite women like me (I’m 4’9). The women who run this company are amazing, so reach out to them if you have questions!

Fleuri- Hand Crafted Jewelry by Women, for Women.
Fleuri is a company based in LA that was founded by two women with a passion for timeless elegance. When they couldn’t find the quality or sophistication they were looking for in jewelry, they set out to create their own line using what they could find locally. Each Fleuri piece is crafted intentionally, using sustainably sourced materials. While you’re browsing you may notice that each design is named after a historic woman- Fleuri’s way of paying homage to the women who have brought inspiration and beauty to this world. In this photo, I’m wearing the Cecil earrings.

Human Design Soul Map- Gift Card
Jasmine, Founder of Moon Dust Our Mother has a very special way of reading Human Design charts. So far, she’s prepared Soul Maps for Ben and I, and soon, our entire Rising Woman team. Even though I’ve studied human design for nearly 8 years, I still learned new things about our charts!
This is a really beautiful gift idea that isn’t another “thing” but an intimate experience of getting to know oneself on a deeper level. I’ve gifted Astrology or Human Design readings in the past and they are always so well received!
