SUSTAINABLE GIFT IDEAS
Petit Vour Beauty Box. Give the gift of ethical luxury. Created out of the frustration of non-transparency within the fashion and beauty industry, Petit Vour was created to cater to beauty lovers who are committed to living a clean lifestyle. A gift subscription will allow the recipient to experience four of the most luxurious, top shelf, non-toxic cruelty-free beauty brands on a monthly basis (3, 6, or 12 months) across hair, skin, fragrance, and body care categories based on the recipient’s created profile. $54-$180 Petit Vour.
Phlur Fragrances. Empower your loved one to create beautiful sensory experiences with cruelty-free, responsibly-packaged fragrance that doesn’t harm the environment or compromises their health. Phlur Fragrances, which are gender neutral, are made without irritants and they coordinate with IUCN to ensure ingredients are responsibly-sourced. Most bottles of popular fragrances are clear, allowing light to penetrate and destroy the fragrance. Because of this, fragrance companies usually add stabilizers to keep fragrances potent. Instead, Phlur Fragrances come in eco-friendly opaque bottles to help maintain the potency of the juice. Many wonderful gift giving options in a range of prices. $18-$160 PHLUR.
Ginger + Liz Trio Collection. Give the gift of polished hands with Ginger + Liz. These awesome nail lacquers are 5 free nail formulas which are free from nasty ingredients found in popular nail lacquers so you can keep your nails poppin’ with compromising your health. Be sure to include the Hand Toning Creme ($18) to create the ultimate gift of beautiful, touchable hands.
Crux Deluxe Shaving Kit. Shaving is not just about the hair but the skin as well. Crux Deluxe Shaving Kit will help keep the beard (and skin) game strong with natural and organic ingredients. It is perfect for someone just starting to shave or for someone who needs to elevate their grooming routine. This set includes pre- and post-shave oil, shave soap, as well as, a beard brush and stainless steel bowl – all in a nylon waterproof pouch. $90 Crux Supply Company.
