Vegan Leather Mat from Wander & Roam
One of the best part of being a kid – is just being a kid. Playing with markers, blocks, making crafts, painting, picnics, and DIRT are all staples to a happy childhood (in my opinion 🙂 ). The folks at Wander & Roam realize that being a kid sometimes means there may be a mess involved and they have the solution – Vegan Leather Mats!
These mats are eco-friendly, hypoallergenic & easy to clean…use for play, yoga, and everything in between! These mats are perfect to pack in the car for a day at the park, beach trips, or “project day” at home that may involve painting. To preserve the life of your printed mat, use extra caution when folding or cleaning, and be sure to avoid sharp objects or heavy furniture as the ink may scratch or crack.
Head on over and choose the perfect design for your mat!
Children’s Joggling Board from The Joggle Factory
In Collaboration with Lowcountry Autism Foundation
Have you ever experienced “Southern Hospitality”? If you haven’t – you are MISSING OUT! Being from the South, I may be a tad bit bias, but there is no better place to live on earth! People smile walking down the street, you are often greeted with “How ya’ doing” by perfect strangers, yes ma’am and thank you are everyday terms, and we just generally enjoy simple things in life.
The Joggle Factory has perfected Southern Hospitality in one product! Here in the South we like to use our porches for socializing and unwinding after a long day. A good joggle board is the PERFECT way to unwind!
One thing that made me fall in love with this company even more is this children’s joggle board that supports a cause near and dear to my heart – Autism. Proceeds from the sale of each children’s joggle board goes to the Lowcountry Autism Foundation!
The quality is superb and assembly is a snap! This would make a PERFECT gift for the expectant parents or a “First Christmas” for your little one. It is a gift that will grow with your child, can be passed down for generations, and will benefit a great cause!
Moroccan Blanket from Verve CULTURE
There is something about this season that shouts comfy blankets, bonfires, and Christmas music to me! These Moroccan blankets from Verve are absolutely STUNNING! The tassels add just the right sophistication to make these great to use and to throw over the chair or couch when not in use.
I had originally thought I would gift this blanket to my mom for Christmas… sorry if you’re reading this mom… NOT going to happen. 🙂 Like all other Moroccan blankets, the more “love” you show it – the softer it gets! I love cuddling up under my blanket at the end of the day while my husband
channel surfs for hours watches a tv show that we mutually agree on…
You simply cannot go wrong by gifting one of these beautiful blankets. Get yours ordered today!
Relaxation Lamp from ALLAY
The Allay Lamp is a unique lamp that uses a narrow band of green light to calm the brain, promote sleep and relieve headache pain, all without relying on medication!

Allay’s patented glow naturally soothes the brain reducing stress, anxiety and headaches.
We have already put our Allay Lamp to work! Between the stress of school, Covid, sports, and life in general – my daughter is feeling the squeeze. This lamp is helping to calm her nerves and get a better nights rest. I love the fact that she can improve her sleep without going on medication.
This would be a FANTASTIC gift for pregnant or new moms – because if anyone suffers from sleep deprivation … it’s new moms! You can go HERE to learn more and order your Allay Lamp now!

Sherpa Bamboo Knit Throw
What’s one of the first feelings that embrace you together with autumn? When I think of the chilly nights and short days, all I would like to do (hopefully, it’s not just me getting this feeling) is staying in bed with a plush and comfortable knit and watching my favorite movies together with my better half. But, what if I told you that you can do this in a eco-conscious way and you can use products that can keep you warm, give a homie feeling, but also support ethical and sustainable production practices? Cariloha has all these aspects covered and more.
The Sherpa Bamboo Knit Throw is one of Cariloha’s sustainable products made of eco-friendly materials. The viscose bamboo makes this bedding softer than cotton, while being highly breathable, as well. Apart its luxurious design, this knit is one of the plushest and comfiest I have ever tried. If you care about someone’s health and comfort, you can offer this blanket as an anniversary, gift, or birthday gift. It’s impossible to go wrong with this choice whether you do it for you or for someone you love!
Candle Set from The Copper Bell
The only thing I love more than a flickering candle is a flickering candle with a clever name! The Copper Bell has delightfully scented candles with darling names! This set of soy candles come in a gift box wrapped with a bow – ready to put under your tree!
The Fall Sample Set comes with 6 absolutely wonderfully scented candles:
- All You Knead is Loaf – apple cinnamon loaf
- Give ‘Em Pumpkin to Talk About – pumpkin caramel latte
- In-Cider Information – mulled apples, autumn leaves, musk
- Pear Pressure – pear, riesling, pine
- The Snuggle is Real – cozy blanket
- Up in Smoke – sweet tobacco leaf, sandalwood, musk
I would love to tell you what my favorite scent is … but they all smell so yummy I can’t choose just one!
Most candles from big box stores are made with paraffin wax – an oil byproduct – that can result in unfortunate side effects like headaches. Katrina at The Copper Bell started exploring soy wax as an alternative and never looked back. Soy burns longer and cleaner than it’s paraffin counterpart.
These soy candles will make the perfect gift for any candle-lover on your list and Katrina makes it super simple – order from the comfort of your home and receive a gift wrapped box of goodness!

GIGI Building Bloks
I remember as a little girl making castles out of cardboard boxes and sheets – I felt like a queen (pun totally intended 🙂 ). I can only imagine the fun I would have had with these super fun Gigi Bloks! It never failed as I was building the sheet would fall (or my brother would give them a shove) and tear down my handiwork. We won’t discuss what ensued after a brother destroys a queens castle… ahem.
I can’t wait to build my niece her own Gigi Blok Castle and I will gladly be the guardswoman over the castle. No little brothers will destroy this castle!
These building bloks feature interlocking design like many of the smaller building blocks on the market. Gigi’s is built out of sturdy cardboard and snaps together so you don’t have to worry about a younger sibling or pet bumping them and knocking over your work of art!
Children’s imaginations have always marveled me – the sky is truly the limit. Whether you are building a castle, a dragon, or a car wash Gig’s takes it to the next level of fun!
