The Gifts that Keep on Giving – CoCo Gift Guide 2017


We’re over the moon to share with you our first ever gift guide! Each product or company is committed to giving back –  through donating to a cause, transparent manufacturing practices, sustainable materials or offering fun & mindful tools to live your healthiest, happiest life. We believe the present itself is only half the story so this year give a gift that is making this world a better place!

1. Alexis Mera Jungle High Rise Leggings

Because its a jungle out there and monstera leaves & yoga pants make absolutely everything better.

 

2. Will and Bear Straw Hats

I’m notoriously sporting a hat and I LOVE Will and Bear’s! Their Yorke Sand is a wide-brimmed fedora. And for every hat sold they plant 10 trees!

 

3. Away Carry-On

I’m still amazed at how much I can fit in this sucker. And I love being able to charge my phone running late to a flight….one-handed (the wheels are that good).

 

4. Tenzo Matcha Start Kit

Nothing beats the perfect cup of matcha! Their kit includes all tools you need including a whisk stand and flavored matcha packets.

 

5. Starfish Jewelry

Long live gold & crystals! (Especially affordably). Each piece is simple and handmade by women who have faced exploitation, and are bravely beginning a new life and renewing their self-worth.

 

6. Wylder Probiotic Coffee

Improved Gut Health & Great Coffee? Yup! These ladies get it. They combined probiotics with yummy organic, ecologically grown, and ethically sourced coffee beans. Your health-nut, coffee junkie friends will love it!

 

7. Habitual Threads Jewelry

I just love them! Their jewels are unique and earthy. And they give $5 from each necklace sold to the cause of your choice. You can CHOOSE between adoption, food, shelter, water, family or mental health.

 

8. The Ethical Silk Company’s Eye Mask

Eye masks help you make the most of your vacation! (or just help you get a little more rest). This one is always in my bag. The Ethical Silk Company is made from 100% eco-friendly mulberry silk and filled with 100% organic cotton. Each mask is manufactured in a fair trade factory in India, and all of the water used in the low impact dye process is treated and recycled. 10% of their profits are donated to fight AIDS and homelessness, so you can sleep peacefully knowing your purchase went to a good cause.

 

9. barre3 Online Classes (& Swag)

Give the gift of cardio & mindfulness! I’m always traveling and it can be tough to make time for an 1.5 workout class. barre3 doesn’t let me make any excuses! It’s a great balance of cardio and strength and you can access it anywhere for any period of time.

 

10. Allbirds Wool Runners

All natural, wool, sockless, and totally washable. These sneaks are like wearing a supportive sweatshirt all day long!

 

11. Cuyana Leather Travel Set

What’s better than logoless, buttery-soft leather goods with your initials? Pretty much nada.

 

12. Conscious Coconut

I mean….I don’t think it needs an explanation but, this product covers literally every area of health and happier living. 😉

 

13. Samaya Mediation Pillow & Inscape Guided Meditation

Why not make meditation a little prettier and certainly more comfortable? Their pillows are filled with organic buckwheat hulls, millet hulls, and a bit of dried lavender. And I love the INSCAPE mediation app. It helps me find balance and clarity since I’m always on the go.

 

14. Gurus Roots Cork Yoga Mat

I’ve been practicing yoga for 16 years and here she is! My favorite yoga mat. It doesn’t matter how hot a class is or the humidity outside (I’m in Florida), you won’t slip on this mat! It’s natural and sustainably-sourced. And for every mat sold, they plant a tree in the developing world through a partnership with Trees for the Future.

 

15. OSEA Total Re-Set

Long days, travel, no sleep. Sometimes you just need a re-do! I LOVE this set from Osea. The mask purifies & decongests and the serum is packed with Organic Seaweed, Thyme, Juniper, Turmeric, mineral-rich French Red Kaolin Clay and super hydrating Hyaluronic Acid. Osea is completely free of all chemicals and in fact, was the first company to sign “Compact for Safe Cosmetics”. All ingredients are plant-based, vegan and 100% sustainable.

 

And we saved the best for last…..

Skinfood Consultation

All this clean beauty, healthy eating stuff can be confusing! There are new products, confusing certifications and contradicting opinions about it all. I love the ladies at Skin Food. You can hire them for a personalized green beauty & healthy eating regime that makes sense and works for you. Hayley and Tara make it super fun and understandable for you or your loved ones.

What are you waiting for, get to shopping!
