It’s that time of year again: the hunt for the perfect gift for that special someone is on!
I’ve got loads of ideas for you this year, for the health nut, baker, hostess, guys, stocking stuffers, and more!
I tried my best to find gift ideas that are either fair trade or made in America/Japan/Europe. They’re also all from Amazon and Thrive for your shopping convenience!
Let’s hop into the gift guides:
Gift Ideas For the Health Nut:
1 Lifefactory Glass Storage Container with Silicone Sleeve – health-conscious homemakers prefer glass containers for storage! This one comes with a silicone sleeve to prevent breakage.
2 Non-Toxic Window Cleaner – this one looks like it’s actually non-toxic!
3 Coconut Wax Wish On a Star Candle – candles can be loaded with toxic ingredients, like paraffin wax, lead wicks, and artificial fragrances. This one is made with coconut wax and scented with essential oils!
4 Mixed Berry Collagen Peptides – I got a jar of this, and it didn’t last long in our house! Delicious.
6 Raw Manuka Honey – I haven’t done a lot of research on Manuka honey, but supposedly its a wonderful superfood!
7 Anchor Hocking Glass Water Bottle – I own this bottle (sent to me by Anchor Hocking) and I love it! It’s completely plastic free!
8. Four Sigmatic Reishi Mushroom Elixir Mix – reishi mushrooms are supposed to be relaxing by lowering cortisol levels. So cool!
9. Propolis Spray – anti-inflammatory and supposed to help prevent colds, flus, and sore throats!
Gift Ideas for the Baker:
1 Komo Grain Mill – I own this mill, and love it! This would be a showstopper gift for sure. Any hard-core baker would love to own their own grain mill!
2 Einkorn Wheat Berries – something to grind in the mill would be a nice touch.
3 Organic Vanilla Extract – with vanilla prices so high these days, a bottle of extract feels like a luxury!
4 Microplane Zester – this is hands down the best tool for zesting citrus, ginger, nutmeg, etc. Made in the USA!
5 Jane Domestic Denim Apron – for the messy baker! Or for anyone that likes to protect their clothing from cooking accidents.
6 Stoneware Batter Bowls – Made in the USA and GORGEOUS.
7 Store your baking supplies in style in this Pottery Basket!
Gift Ideas for the Hostess:
I think it would make an awesome hostess gift to put several of these items in the wire basket!
2 Twig Honey Stick and Spreader – how cute are these?!
3 Pan Scrapers – I’ve received these as a gift in the past, and they are SO handy for washing dishes!

Gift Ideas for the Coffee/Tea Lover
1 Copper Tea Kettle – Made in Japan!
2 Wooden tea strainer – this is made in the USA, and lovely!
3 Encha Ceremonial Grade Organic Matcha Powder – this is, hands down, my favorite matcha. Beautiful flavor! If you know someone who’s a matcha fan, this would make them very happy!
4 Tea Drops – I think this is such a neat concept! They’re little balls of tea mixed with sweetener that you pop in a mug and top with hot water.
5 Earl Grey Lip Balm – wouldn’t you want your lips to taste like Earl Grey Tea?
6 Wooden Tea Chest – Any tea addict tends to have a collection of various teas. A tea chest is a handy way to keep them all in one spot!
