December 15, 2017

Every year we fall in love with new brands (and rediscover old favorites!), all with a quality that shows in the passion, care and love put into the products/services! Read on for our favorite discoveries of the year + gift inspiration for those special someones ...

Beehouse teapot

FOR THE TEA DRINKER

Bee House Teapots + Medicinal Herbs: A Beginner's Guide by Rosemary Gladstar. These teapots are sooooo cute ~ they come in a variety of colors, sizes and finishes, and are super durable. One of these babies + a book full of wisdom from the godmother of Western herbalism = the perfect gift.

Inward Yung PuebloFOR THE MINDFUL

If you aren't already following @yung_pueblo on Instagram, stop reading and do it right now. Go on, we'll still be here.

Got it? Ok, so Diego Perez, the man behind the handle, recently published the beautiful inward. Part prose, part poetry, full wisdom. No matter who it is on your list, this book fits the bill. (Want more? Check out the Flowerlounge interview with Diego.)

Linen Fox fashions

FOR THE ECO-CONSCIOUS FASHIONISTA

We discovered Linen Fox on Etsy this summer … hand-made using 100% organic + toxic free certificated linen, their designs + nature-inspired colors are simply stunning. The shop owner, Ingrida, is so sweet + happily willing to work with you 1:1 to get you the perfect fitting!

poetry books

FOR THE POET

There is a reason poetry always calls to us, even if we feel we don't fully understand it. These contemporary works tap into the wealth and breadth of your inner, most hidden self, bringing forth the unseen cracks to be filled with love and light:

salt, by nayirrah waheed
milk & honey and the sun & her flowers, both by rupi kaur

s'mores indoors Lynda Sing Eric Robertson

FOR PARENTS + OTHERS WITH BELOVED LITTLES (ages 3-8)

S'mores Indoors, by Eric Robertson and Lynda Sing, is a beautiful children's book written in collaboration by one of our favorite people. Journey through young Eleanor’s boundless imagination, and why she stands firm about her most beloved treat! Wonderful rhymes that parents will appreciate, endearing + joyful illustrations, this story will be a favorite for years to come.

beach meditation

FOR THE MEDITATOR

Loch Kelly's Shift into Freedom audiobook. Combining insights from neuroscience + psychology, with the boundless wisdom of ancient traditions, Shift into Freedom offers an accessible and remarkably powerful series of meditations that can lead us into “awake awareness.” The written form can feel a little overwhelming, with the need to stop every few sentences to integrate (not always a bad thing!). But with the audio, it is much easier to let the lessons permeate, as well as practice the offered meditations in the moment.

wei inspired organic dark chocolate Wei of Chocolate

FOR THE LOVER OF HEALTHY INDULGENCE

Who doesn't love chocolate? Our sister company, Wei of Chocolate, makes the most decadent chocolate in 9 delicious flavors ~ and it's good for you, too! {organic, fair trade, vegan, GMO-free, dairy-free, gluten-free+ soy-free}. Even better? Every piece is infused with flower essences! Wei Inspired is the office fave ~ Himalayan Pink Salt infused 72% dark chocolate, with flower essences of Pink Primrose + Firestar Orchid to bring forth new ideas with ease.

camping

FOR THE OUTDOOR EXPLORER

The LOTUSWEI team (individually + together) did a lot of camping this past year. Here are a few of our favorite items we discovered + think would be the perfect gift trio for your outdoorsy loved ones:

- SMASHMALLOWS: Taylor developed a new weakness for these Cinnamon Churro Marshmallows this summer. You can’t go wrong with em'. You have her word.
- Biolite Stove: Even though we prefer campfire cooking, this mini stove is perfect for the explorer who likes to pack small + light.
- Good-To-Go Foods: These dehydrated meals are g-o-u-r-m-e-t … hand-made in Maine by a female chef, gluten free, and they even offer vegan options! Our recommended flavor:Thai Curry!
wildthorne watercolors


FOR THE WILD CREATIVE

These watercolor paints by @wildthorne speak for themselves … aren’t they GORGEOUS!? "Each pan is hand poured to exacting traditional recipes + techniques using the highest quality earth pigments, and natural watercolor binding medium made from distilled water, honey, glycerine, and the sap of acacia trees.” {Photo from wildthorne.com}

Happy gifting!

Love + flower petals,
