The Ultimate List: Five Easy Unisex Gifts That Do Good
The Kind Hostess: The Starling Project, $55
The Starling Project candles are hand-poured in Brooklyn, NYC and are made of soy wax, recycled glass, cotton wicks and ethically-sourced essential oils. Each candle burns for a minimum of 60 hours (and they smell heavenly). For each candle sold, a donation is made to UNICEF to bring solar energy one person in need. We suggest the best-selling scents Hyacinth + Bamboo and or Currant + Rosewood.
The Smarty Pants: One Class from MasterClass, $90
Not into material gifts? Give the gift of learning from the best. MasterClass is an online platform that offers courses from world-famous experts; learn cooking from chef Gordon Ramsay, tennis from Serena Williams, or how to build a fashion brand from Diane Von Furstenberg. Each class is a comprehensive and exclusive course from the best in business--- a thoughtful and perfect gift.
The Necessary Accessory: Pela Phone Case, $35
Plastic phone cases are typically treated as a disposable, plastic accessories that are changed out often. Meet the Pela phone case made of plant-based materials- and it’s completely compostable. We tried out the rose-quartz color and it is perfect, but check out the wide range of colors available for multiple phone types.
