Holiday Gift Guide

Side Notes

The tradition of holiday gift giving, so historical narratives attest, is rooted in ancient pagan holidays that revolved around the winter solstice: the astronomical occurrence that marks the shortest day of the year and the longest night — literally, when the “sun stands still.” These cultures viewed the event as a symbol of death and rebirth: the time when the year came full circle.

We see the holidays as an opportunity to bring community and consciousness full circle by giving loved ones something special, selected just for them,that gives back to society or the Earth. And since we’re surrounded by companies and makers who do this every day — through ethical production, artisan methods, philanthropy and more — we’ve created a Holiday Gift Guide that’s thoughtful in more ways than one. It celebrates culture without compromising nature and features a pick for everyone on your list.
