Does this ever happen to you? You’re getting geared up for holiday festivities, and you realize you’ve forgotten someone on your gift list. In a panic, you cast around for the closest thing, but it’s not always easy to find a meaningful, well-made present at a moment’s notice.
Never fear! The Whole Body department in your local Whole Foods Market stocks loads of high quality gifts. Whether you’re a last-minute shopper or a long-range present planner, they’ve got thoughtful selections for everyone on your list.
Looking for stocking stuffers that are more than just stuff? Consider little, luxurious body care items that nearly everyone needs, such as lip balm and hand cream. Whole Foods Market™ Organic Lip Balm Trio will help protect and nourish the lips you love, and our Hand Cream Collection is made with 20% shea butter to help soothe dry winter skin.
Gifts with Style and Soul
In the era of fast fashion, let Whole Foods Market be your destination for fashion-forward clothing with a conscience. A gift of socks takes on a whole new significance when you give a PACT sock bundle; these fabulous Fair Trade footies are knitted in a wind-powered factory.
If you’re shopping for a friend with flair, check out hand-loomed Rising Tide Infinity Scarves. Each purchase supports traditional textile artisans in India and Nepal, so you’ll feel doubly warm and fuzzy when you give this one-of-a-kind neckwear.
For the Little Ones
This holiday season, Whole Foods Market is proud to partner with PBS Kids. 100% of the proceeds that PBS receives from these toys supports their mission: building knowledge, critical thinking, imagination and curiosity to empower children for success. In addition, Whole Foods Market is donating 1% of total sales from these toys (up to $25,000) to Whole Kids Foundation®.
Got an animal lover on your list? Check out our selection of plush orangutans, bears and penguins! They’re extra squeezable because they’re made without phthalates or PVC, as is the Pig on Wheels, a dishwasher-safe plastic push toy for babies and toddlers.
We’ve got just the thing for the kid who’s transfixed by cars and trucks too. Green Toys Race Cars inspire hours of racing and jumping, and they’re made from recycled milk bottles! The Produce Pickup Shape Sorter helps build basic math skills, and it’s made from Forest Stewardship Council-certified pine.
Gifts That Give Back
Looking for meaningful gifts that help spread the love? Good Paper Sanctuary Spring Fair Trade greeting cards are printed on handmade paper, and they help provide jobs for women who have escaped human trafficking in the Philippines. If seasonal jewelry is on your gift list, check out the Chavez for Charity green charm bracelets. 25% of proceeds will be donated to the Whole Planet Foundation®, whose work helps alleviate poverty by providing microcredit in communities that supply Whole Foods Market stores with products.
Helpful Hostess Gifts
Don’t show up empty handed! The Paddywax Eco Green Candle delivers boho charm because it’s hand-poured in an upcycled wine bottle. Not quite sure about your host’s decorating vibe? No worries! The Big Dipper Wax Works Tapers add elegance to any occasion with hand-dipped beeswax.
For the Man in Your Life
Meeting someone special under the mistletoe? The Every Man Jack Sandalwood Body Kit gives him everything he needs to clean up nicely: hydrating body wash, aluminum-free deodorant, SPF lip balm and soothing face lotion with a sensual sandalwood fragrance.
