Gift Guide: Sustainable Stocking Stuffers for the Whole Family

I don’t know about your family, but stockings were always a huge part of our holiday traditions. My grandmother would knit everyone their own when they were born, and we used those handmade stockings year after year. I still have mine from when I was a baby, and now Elliott has one, too! We always opened our stockings first, and my parents were so good about filling them up with practical things my brother and I could use like gift cards, chapstick, & bubble gum. Since eco-friendly and sustainable products have become a big part of my life in the last decade, I thought it would be fitting to make a stocking gift guide with all of my favorites from EarthHero!

I know a lot of people who have picked up yoga this year as a great at-home exercise that can also help to relieve stress.

Create a cozy and relaxing home environment with this vegan hygge candle, hand poured in Ohio out of non-toxic soy wax.
