Calling All Holiday Mamas!

Small businesses deserve extra attention this year, and in the maternal spirit of caring and checking in, we're sharing gorgeous picks from our favorite small stores that are perfect for the moms and babes in your life. You may even find some lovely items for others (and yourself!) while you're cruising their shops. As a small business ourselves, we appreciate every gift you purchase and so will these knock-out makers. Read on for the skinny on why these are our must-haves!

1. Quincy Mae Knitted Booties

These gorgeous vintage-inspired booties are made of organic cotton and come in a wide variety of yummy colors. We're partial to this gender- neutral "eucalyptus" color to keep even the chubbiest baby feet cozy this winter. Find it here!

2. Loria Pressed Flower Cookies

Moms deserve a little decadence! Frankly, we all do after this year. These beautiful shortbread cookies sport edible flowers sourced directly from Loria's organic garden in Montecito, California. Anyone is capable of busting through the winter woes with these garden confections! Find it here!

3. Beatrice Venezuela Concha Pendant

Mermaids rejoice! This 14k gold scallop pendant is an ode to the ocean and a lovely pretty thing to give (or get) this holiday. Ethically made in Los Angeles, it emanates feel-good vibes and is effortless to wear for busy moms. Find it here!

4. Sabo Blocks Set

This handcrafted set of classic blocks is made of hardwood and painted in delicious olive toned water-based paint. It'll bring back memories for parents, and will make new ones for the littles. Find it here!

5. Pansy Full Bra

Made of 90% cotton and 10% spandex (from recycled PET), underthings from Pansy are a sustainable delight! The full bra is a classic that was a go-to for our founder's pregnancy and beyond. The beautiful array of colors and dreamy photography alone are enough to get us excited to revamp our undies drawer. Find it here!

6. Earth Tu Face Body Butter

Our 100% vegan Coconut + Cardamom Body Butter is handmade in small batches at our California apothecary, and is a mom-approved staple. The cardamom and cinnamon essential oils soothe sore muscles and provide a grounding scent experience while deeply moisturizing parched + tired skin. Find it here!

7. STORQ x ETF Mama Care Products

In 2018, we teamed up with California based mama brand, STORQ, to create a capsule line of maternity + postpartum products free of pink and blue labels, and full of healing botanicals. Tested by real moms (our founder included) and made in small batches in our California apothecary, these babies focus on relief and are packed with plants hand-picked for their healing properties. Find it here!

8. Le Feu De L'Eau Edible Garden Candle

An inspiring collaboration between small-batch USA candle maker Le Feu De L'Eau, and Edible Gardens LA. This collection of candles brings the garden into your home and is made thoughtfully with soy wax, a zero-lead wick, and a white oak lid that is hand-milled in Maine. We're lusting after the cardamom scent that also carries notes of orange and coriander. Find it here!

9. Babaa Merino Wool Set

Though 2020 is drawing to a close, we're here to say that the sweat suit look is here to stay — especially for moms! This set comes direct from sustainable maker, Babaa, with wool from their very own flock of Spanish sheep. Super soft, comfortable, and in fashion-forward colors, this just might be our new 2021 uniform. Find it here!

Our most botanically rich lotion always manages to transport us to sun-soaked days in the garden when roses are blooming and lavender is ready to harvest. Making this product at our little apothecary is a truly delicious experience — from the sweet grassy scent of geranium that dances through the air, to mixing in rose absolute essential oil until the cream turns to a rich custard color.
