Indie Lee is one of my new favorite eco-chic skin-care lines that is all-natural and cruelty-free. I love that it’s American-made and makes you feel really good about green beauty.

2. SOMA pitcher

A feel-good water pitcher? You bet. This stylish pitcher is beautiful enough to keep out and you can do away with wasteful water bottles. Best of all, it gives back to water charity.


A perfect purchase for the clean cook in your life, Ali Maffucci’s Inspiralizer is for the health-conscious looking to cut back on gluten or carbs. Veggie noodles are also a fun and unique way to incorporate more veg into your diet.

4. VITAMIX 780

A Vitamix is the perfect high-powered blender for all of your green smoothies this season. Try making pestos, soups, sauces or even your own homemade nut butters. It’s my most-used appliance and is well worth the investment.


$39 to $350
These gorgeous CHEMEX glass coffee makers are a beautiful addition to everyone’s kitchen. I seriously love using mine each morning. It’s also the perfect addition to your holiday brunch table.

6. BIOSSANCE the revitalizer

Get gorgeous and keep your skin hydrated this season. This all-natural product is made from squalane, a substance that’s naturally found in your skin. The serum is light, refreshing and a great find for the beauty buff in your life.
