It’s week three of the Feel Rite Holiday Shopping Gift Guide, where we give you a little more information about the products in our gift guide and why we chose them. If you missed week 1, you can find it here, if you missed week 2, you can find it here.
1. Vintage Handmade Kantha Quilts
Each one of a kind Vintage Kantha Quilt is a handcrafted masterpiece made from recycled vintage cotton saris. Hand-sewn and embroidered by artisans in India, each provides a livelihood for women in poor communities and gives their children the opportunity to live better, more productive lives. And, they’re incredibly beautiful.
2. AnneMarie Borlind
The AnneMarie Borlind brand is focused on having a scientific pioneering spirit, embodied value and responsible handling of natural resources. Their natural cosmetics have proven efficacy, which they develop from singular raw materials through innovative and sustainable action. Their products are broken up into care systems, specified for your skin. The products are perfectly coordinated for the care steps Cleansing, Strengthening, Daytime Protection, Night Care and Eye Care.
3. Essential Oils & Diffusers
At Feel Rite Fresh Markets, we carry easily over 100 varieties of essential oils between different brands, kinds and blends (including our own Feel Rite brand, the sinus blend is amazing). We also carry many different kinds of diffusers from USB diffusers that fit in your car cup holder, to diffusers for kids rooms to the the large beautiful glass diffusers pictured above. If you’re new to essential oils one of our team members can help you get started.
4. Local Candles and Holders
These awesome candle holders are from local Northern Lights Candles in Wellsville, NY. These ornate pierced metal luminaries are inspired by patterns from around the globe. They come with a glass insert and fit pillars, tealights, or votives. While you can find these holders in all of our locations, some of our locations carry a more extensive selection of Northern Lights Candles including their amazing smelling “Spirits” candles with scents inspired by holiday cocktails like Cranberry Mimosa.
5. New Chapter Gift Basket
At Feel Rite, we bring only the best in supplement brands and New Chapter is certainly one of them. They’re a certified B Corp, focused on sustainability, purity, vegetarian, non-GMO and organic ingredients. Their supplements are cultured with whole foods, so they’re very gentile on the stomach. There’s certainly a New Chapter supplement for everyone on your list; take Zyflamend for example, which can help with soreness and inflammation after a workout. And while, yes, we realize vitamins are not the typical Christmas gift, sometimes the gift of health is the greatest you can give.
5. Savannah Bee Company
Savannah Bee creates beauty products using organic and all natural ingredients, delivering real benefits derived from treasured hive ingredients– beeswax, royal jelly, propolis, and honey. They smell amazing and feel great. One of our favorites are the beeswax lotion candle, pictured above. Just light the candle and as it melts you’re provided with warm lotion. Their products are lovely and beautifully packaged, making them an excellent holiday gift. And if you’re concerned about their bees, don’t be. Savannah Bee is committed to not only taking excellent care of their own bees, but educating the public about the important role honeybees play in the ecosystems they inhabit. Check out their organization The Bee Cause Project, which helps educate the public about bees and provides grants for observation and honey producing hives for schools and educational facilities.
