Full Disclosure: I’ve partnered with the brands on this list. That means that they sent me a sample so that I could hold, touch, try out and even play with the gifts before suggesting them to you. I’m only recommending those products I love. This post contains links to the products. Some but not all of the links are affiliate links.

My husband is loving his new JORD watch and the boys are really upset they don’t come in kid sizes. The clock face and back show the moving gears and it mesmerizes them.
Aside from incredible style, the watches are Earth-friendly. JORD (pronounced Yode) is Sweedish for “earth, land, or soil”. JORD is committed to having no part in global deforestation. They use wood from trees that have already fallen or furniture remnants.
This St. Louis based company started in 2013 and makes watches, caps, and sunglasses for men and women.
Has anyone else tried lots of different natural deodorants only to end up with a couple that work? Give Pit Liquor a try, I think you’ll like it.
Coconut Rum with Lime is my favorite. It smells incredible and brings back memories of relaxing on a beach in Mexico.
Once the Pit Liquor dries, it doesn’t leave any scent of liquor – just the all-natural fragrance that’s added to it.
No allergens or bad reactions, no harmful chemicals or toxins, no ingredients you couldn’t find in most grandmas’ kitchens. No gimmicky “adjustment period” a lot of natural deodorants say to expect. Just classy, fun, healthy deodorant that simply works. We carefully craft beautiful body products using ingredients of exceptional quality. Distilled excellence is the result. https://distilledbathandbody.com/
Another great gift idea for the nature lover on your list is, well, really ANYTHING from Eva Naturals.
I’m loving the Skin Clearing Serum, Youth Restoring Eye Gel and Collagen Stimulating Skin Repairing Peptide Complex Serum. They smell great, feel great on my face, and best of all are made without harsh chemicals and parabens. Each product is made in small batches for ultimate freshness.
I love, love, LOVE this gift idea for expecting mamas (first baby or otherwise!). Mama gets to enjoy 14 individually wrapped gifts as she counts down the days until baby comes.
The new mama can choose to open one gift a week for the last fourteen weeks or one a day for the last two weeks. Heck, if she wants to, she can just open them all at once! The box contains beautiful, high quality, organic (when possible) gifts an expecting mom would love.

The makers of Countdown have brought a tech edge to improve our favorite classic games.
You know how hide and seek is fun for the first 3 rounds but after that, all the good hiding places have been used? Countdown turns it on its side and makes it much more fun. Instead of using the hiding places where you can fit, take turns hiding the Countdown game.
Now drawers, cupboards, and under the couch is fair game. Hide and seek is a lot more fun when you can get creative on where to hide the Countdown game. It has a timer that you have to try to beat before it starts beeping to reveal the location.
Hide and seek is just one game of many programmed into Countdown. There are single-player games too like our favorite Whack-A-Mole. Everyone in the family from Mom and Dad to our 4-year-old is vying for a turn at Whack-A-Mole and trying to beat our best time.
This is a great gift for the family and a wide age range will love it.

After hearing about Orbeez Seeds from so many mom friends, I decided it was finally time to try them out! The boys are wild about them! The seeds start as tiny beads. Add a little warm water and they start to “grow”. It takes 3-4 hours for them to fully expand.
They’re perfect for sensory play and work great in water tables. When you’re finished playing with them, let them dry out and start all over again another day.
