Eco Gifts for the Conscious Host / Hostess
Here is a round up by our co-founder Cora Hilts of all her favorite tablescape items that make the perfect gift for any host or hostess in your life this Holiday season!
I love AMASS spirits because they are all natural, non-GMO, plant based and vetted by the best in the business. No artificial preservatives or unnecessary chemicals in their bottles, just plants. They use ingredients from adaptogens I love like mushrooms and Ashwagandha for a totally clean cocktail. Their Dry Gin has been a go to for Holiday parties. It’s a citrus-forward, herbaceous spirit balanced with earthy umami notes from Reishi mushroom and lion’s mane mushroom. Of the 29 organic botanicals inside the bottle, 11 come from California, with several growing in founder Morgan’s own backyard. This is such a special treat for anyone who loves a cocktail, and they have a non-alcoholic spirit as well perfect for anyone abstaining this Holiday season!
Their Milo dutch oven has become my go to this Fall – I have done every soup and stew in it! Manufactured with 40% recycled cast iron in ethical, accountable plants, Milo’s timeless design has been a feature on my stovetop since the cold weather set in here in Maine. The emerald green is beautiful enough to place on the table, but the white has been amazing for those saute moments where you want to see everything that’s happening as you cook.
These china pieces are the dream for elegant entertaining – all handmade in Devon, England by the Brown Family they are simple yet truly beautiful. Feldspar is dedicated to the craft of local and artisanal production so a great choice for anyone wanting to champion homemade items!
I have been using Coyuchi for all of my table linens this Holiday season and I would highly suggest them as a gift to anyone who likes an organic table setting! Their tablecloths and napkins come in such elegant, natural colours and all are made in America with plant based materials and regenerative practices.
I looked for so long for sustainable ceramics that finding Fable was a dream come true! Their ceramics are all made in Portugal using zero waste practices and their wine and cocktail glasses are break proof so great for any wine lover in your life!
Our newest glassware line is made by two sisters in East London using circular design practices and every item is hand blown. Their vases are perfect for sustainable flower gifting as well!
