Stacy’s Top 10 Favorite Things

1-5

6-10

  • Cariuma Sneakers – I love their sustainable, hip wide toe box shoes that are so easy to wear you don’t need to use your hands. I’ve got their new lined high tops on my wish list!
  • Bombas Socks – We never knew socks could be this good, they’re the perfect gift because most people won’t splurge on themselves. But once you try them, you won’t want to wear anything else! (20% off with our link)
  • Beautycounter Holiday Sets, including the Good Scents Hand Cream Trio & Hand Savior – I’m splitting this set up and gifting it to all the teachers and service providers in my life whose hands are surely in need of some TLC. (sitewide sale 11/14-28/22)
  • Pinsy Shapewear is a multi-purpose gift made with sustainable materials: shape-ware that’s sexy, a gift for you and your partner!
  • Microfiber Towels, Gua Sha stones, and Cleansing Balm is the perfect “spa night at home” for yourself or a bestie who needs some self care. The Cleansing Balm is perfect for all skin types and can do so many things – it’s the Swiss Army Knife of skincare!

Must Haves for Your BFF

  • 8 Days of Jellies: A Better Beauty Holiday  is the gift I would want, it’s so fun – I’d pair it with this Jelly Advent Calendar for someone that likes sweets as much as me! Or, for a more sophisticated friend, Microfiber Towels, Gua Sha stones, and Cleansing Balm is the perfect “spa night at home” for yourself or a best who needs some self care. The Cleansing Balm is perfect for all skin types and can do so many things – it’s the Swiss Army Knife of skincare!
  • Stanley Adventurer Tumblers are the absolute best way to get your water in! They’re hard to find, so it will also show your BFF that you cared a lot to find it for them. Wanna jazz it up without spending a lot? Grab stickers they’d love from Etsy to decorate it!
  • Multi-Masker Set is perfect for all skin types and, paired with a robe or something relaxing (bath salts and a candle), you’ll encourage your bestie to take time for themselves. 
  • Cariuma Sneakers are what I sent my mom these for Mother’s Day – I love mine so much it’s hard to want to wear other shoes! I love their sustainable, hip wide toe box shoes that are so easy to wear you don’t need to use your hands. I’ve got their new lined high tops on my wish list!

Multi-Purpose Budget-Friendly

For In-Laws & Those Who Are Impossible to Gift

  • CozyEarth.com when I think of the people on my list who are impossible to shop for, this is the first thing that comes to my mind for getting a great gift they’d love. Who doesn’t love luxurious sheets that feel like a cloud – better than luxury hotel bedding (Oprah even says so)?! If you want to spoil someone, Matt and I are are obsessed with our bamboo sheets and their clothing is on his wishlist after feeling mine while doing laundry! (code WHOLEVIEW for 35% off)
  • Renew Your Body Duo is a set I have been gifting everyone I know because I’m not aware of any other products on the market like them, let alone safer for people and planet! This BODY peel has been helping tons of people exfoliate difficult skin areas, like the back of the arms prone to KP. And the Tightening Boost Serum is something I’m slathering on my neck from here to eternity!
  • Sustainable Nontoxic Nonstick Cookware from our guide – Upgrading cookware is a gift people will appreciate everyday, but maybe not splurge on for themselves (360 stainless steel nonstick is 25% off non-toxic cookware with code WHOLEVIEW)
  • Bombas Socks – Over the last year, we have replaced all of our socks with Bombas – they were GAME CHANGERS for long days of walking at Disney! I never knew socks could be this good! They’re the perfect gift because most people won’t splurge on themselves. But once you try them, you won’t want to wear anything else! (20% off with our link)

Gifts for Teachers

  • I love the idea of breaking apart the Mini Beyond Gloss Vault and gifting the Cappuccino gloss with a coffee mug or gift card to the coffee connoisseur in your life… likely every teacher is! 
  • Mason Jar of Fed and Fit Gluten Free Mason Jar Cookie Mix, Colima Sea Salt and Legit Brownie Mix is a great way to “bake” for someone that doesn’t live close – plus it feels special and is affordable (the salt is free with my link) There are so many puns you can include with this one about “being salty” – perfect for English and Science teachers!
  • Hands down the best idea: Good Scents Hand Cream Trio & Hand Savior – teachers and health care professionals probably have hands that are raw from washing and sanitizing. The soothing age defense hand serum (that also sanitizes without drying skin out) will feel like magic for them! (sitewide sale 11/14-28/22)

Mental Vacation (top book picks)

This year I got back into reading and have so many books I can recommend! The gift that someone gave me of a good book sparked a passion in me that was just what I needed coming out of quarantine and feeling a bit lost. If you have a book lover in your life, or someone who you think would enjoy a good escape for a mental vacation…

Here are some great gift ideas:

  • A Merry Little Meet Cute by Julie Murphy, perfect for the holidays! Pairs well with the Good Scent Hand Cream Trio
  • Atlas of the Heart by Brene Brown, was so impactful for me I’ve already gifted it thrice! Pairs well with award-winning Countertime Eye Cream to calm all the crying from self reflection and personal growth
  • The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, was one of the only books I’ve read this year that actually “got me” at the end and was such a wonderfully told story that I never wanted to stop reading. Pairs well with the Magical Duo of day and night skincare sister, All Bright Duo to keep us young like Evelyn
  • The Practical Magic series by Alice Hoffman was a fun fantasy escape with lots of rom-com and even explored healthy relationships and boundaries throughout the series. Would also pair well with the Magical Duo of day and night skincare sister, All Bright Duo
  • If the Shoe Fits by Julie Murphy is perfect for the person you know who loves reality TV, especially relationship shows like Love is Blind or Bachelorette. Pairs well with the Going Places Makeup Kit
  • The book that started it all… Elin Hilderbrand’s Hotel Nantucket was the first physical book I’d read in many, many years (that wasn’t for work), and it got me hooked! I gifted it to my MIL for her birthday and she enjoyed it too, so I bet this would be a winner with most people you know. Pairs well with the vacation vibe set of the Goodbye, Dry Body Duo scented with the whisk-you-away-aroma of monoi

I’ve linked all these books and more I recommend here.
