Holiday Spotlight: It's the Little Things that Count

Give stocking stuffers and Hannukah gifts that really make a difference. At Fashion Ethic we've filled our shop with items that will be used and appreciated by everyone on your list for many years to come. These are gifts that combine style and substance to show how much you truly care.

For the Kids: Every kid wants to find a sweet surprise with their holiday treats. Yummy Earth Candy Drops and Lollipops are perfect because they were developed by two dads who wanted to find a good alternative to the artifically flavored-corn-syrup-heavy options. Yummy Earth is organic, uses only natural ingredients, and is kosher as well as being essentially allergy-free. The Moonjar Bank comes folded up, so it's easy to wrap or slip in a stocking. When assembled, it has 3 sections for "deposits" - Save, Share, and Spend. The lessons of sharing and of saving are more important now than ever.

For the Baby: Organics aren't just for food! Since your skin is the largest organ you have, it's just as important to care for what you put ON your body as you do IN it. Kee-Ka Organics makes tyke-size onesies, tees, and bibs in holiday motifs. Check out Kee-Ka and their Snowflake, Little Elf, and Shalom designs today!

For Her: Whether it's your mom, your sister, your grandma or your girlfriend, all the women in your life deserve safe cosmetics. Ko Denmark Organic Lotion uses natural ingredients and is paraben-free with a subtle jasmine and neroli scent. Tsi-La Organic Perfume Set contains four mini rollerball scents for mixing and matching - but it does NOT contain any synthetic ingredients! And what woman doesn't want one-of-a-kind jewelry to match her one-of-a-kind personality? The "upcycled" pieces we carry at Fashion Ethic are not only eco-friendly, but handmade and completely unique.

For Him...Well, For Everyone Really!: Reusable isn't just good for the planet - it's good for YOU too. The SIGG bottle is PBA-free, so you don't have to worry about chemicals leaching into water. SIGG's hard-to-find sport bottle is now available at Fashion Ethic as well as kid sizes. And going "reusable" can be good to your pocketbook too! As more stores begin to charge for disposable bags, or give credits for using reusable bags, a BAGGU Bag will pay for itself in just a few trips to the grocery store. It comes in it's own 5" x 5" pouch and makes an excellent gift for teachers, co-workers, friends and family (and yes, it just might be the only reusable bag we've seen that a man would want to carry!)
