Connie here, co-founder at Three Ships Beauty! As we’re in the midst of the holiday season, I first want to say thank you all so much for your support in 2022 - it truly means so much!
As many of you know, today is Small Business Saturday. During this time of year, many small businesses rely on the success of their holiday sales to help them through slower-moving months (us included!). With this in mind, I wanted to provide a curated list of some of my favourite small businesses I will be supporting this holiday season in the hopes that maybe you can support them too, while also checking some gifts off your holiday list!
Connie’s Small Business Gift Guide:
Give the gift of scent with LOHN! All of LOHN’s candles are made from organic coconut and soy wax, allowing them to burn clean and slow - perfect for the holiday season! Not to mention, every LOHN product is ethically handmade by a small team of makers, so the gift feels extra personal.
What I have my eye on: Winter Moments Mini Candle Trio ($66)
Care about the planet while giving the gift of great hair. Everist is an all-natural company that provides waterless concentrates for the hair and body. I sometimes struggle to find hair care products that are both natural and effective but with everist’s products, my hair gets the best of both worlds!
What I have my eye on: Shower Essentials for Eco-Optimists Kit ($78.40 valued at $98)
Developed by Nichole Powell, after a camping trip to Yosemite, Kinfield was created to formulate products that are unique and could be trusted. I find it hard to find naturally formulated outdoor products but Kinfield really delivers! I love their mosquito repellent and use it all the time in the summer and when I travel to warm locations.
What I have my eye on: Golden Hour Mosquito Repellent ($22)
LEZÉ THE LABEL
When on the hunt for cute, comfortable, everyday clothes, I found LEZÉ THE LABEL and instantly loved everything they had to offer. Their products have a soft touch and are both sustainably and ethically made.
What I have my eye on: The Kendal Pant ($147.21)
SAMARA's purses and wallets are 100% vegan and eco-friendly. SAMARA’s use of innovative plant-based materials make their products long-lasting. With SAMARA, you are buying quality accessories that are produced ethically and sustainably.
What I have my eye on: The Clelia ($60.07)
Who doesn't appreciate a clothing brand that is ethical, sustainable and size-inclusive? Alder Apparel is a Toronto-based athleisure clothing brand founded by National Geographic Explorer Mikayla Wujec and fashion marketing leader Naomi Blackman. They work with environmentally friendly fabrics and ethically transparent factories to produce high-functioning, performance-driven, women’s outerwear.
What I have my eyes on: Go Far Fleece ($109.50 valued at $219)
Whenever I need an extra boost to start the day, I use my APOTHÉKARY blends. Founded by Shizu Okusa, APOTHÉKARY is the first plant-based farmacy that uses all-natural ingredients to solve gut health issues. You can easily apply their blends to foods, smoothies or your favorite drinks!
What I have my eye on: Slay All Day ($33)
