What are the best organic, sustainable, natural gifts for her? I’ve pulled a few of my favorites out of my back pocket (along with some wishlist items!) to bring you a new organic gift guide.
I broke it down into a few different price points, so you can shop with your budget in mind—bookmark this link for when you’re ready to sit down with a cup of tea and check gifts for her off your list. Happy gifting!
Gifts Under $30 for Her
1. ILIA Chromatic Eye Tints | $28
These versatile eye shadows go on wet and dry almost instantly to a powder finish – but the best part is, they don’t crease! Great on their own, as a shadow base or even a highlighter on cheek or brow bones. Check my full review on these chromatic eye tints here.
2. Henné Organics Luxury Lip Tints | $21
Simple ingredients that drive moisture and impact. Apply one layer for a sheer hint of color or add additional layers for a more opaque look. I’m obsessed with Bare. (I’m also obsessed with their hand cream!)
3. Olive + June | $8
Olive + June knows what’s UP when it comes to on-trend yet classic nail colors, and their Winter Collection is no different. With jewel-toned shades and glitter options, it’ll be tough to choose just one to share with her. I talk more about why I love this brand here.

5. Parachute Cotton Cloud Robe | $99
“Cloud” is a great way to describe this robe, says our Content Manager Nicolle Mackinnon. It’s soft, lightweight, and scratches that linen-rob itch, without actually being scratchy. You’ll want a layer underneath during the chillier days, but this will def become a wardrobe staple.
6. LITE + CYCLE Candles | $50
LITE + CYCLE offers non-GMO soy and vegetable oil/wax blend candles that are scented with 100% pure essential oils and poured with an unbleached cotton wick. Comes in several scents. Also cruelty-free and vegan. Also super cute.
