Oh the holidays...what a sometimes wonderful time. Sometimes there are stresses and awkward family moments, but more often than not there is joy. There is celebration. And there are presents.

That's a key element in the gift receiving process - the gift giving. So without further ado, we give you our 5 favorite holiday gift ideas - "Made in the USA" edition.
Brooklyn Candle Studio "Pick 3 Minimalist Candles" - Made in Brooklyn, New York with 100% soy wax for an eco-friendly clean burn. They use lead-free cotton wicks and premium fragrance oils infused with essential oils.
Parks Project Trail Arrow Blanket Stitch Beanie - What better to keep you warm during the cold winter days and nights than a comfy beanie? Our friends at Parks Project create collections of park goods that directly fund backlogged projects in the parks. We love their designs and their mission.
Sheltered Co. Mercury Weighted Blanket - Sourced in LA, using only recycled and deadstock fabrics, these blankets aren't just therapeutic and functional; they're beautiful too.
