The Giving Season

Updated: Dec 16, 2021

Wishing you all the good things and so many blessings in the holiday and new year ahead.


I wanted to share some of my favorite picks for holiday gifts and small businesses to support for giving that really matters. With Giving Tuesday right around the corner it's also an opportunity to ask you to support our continued efforts here at Air & Sun Acres (why is asking so challenging?!)


I just went on a binge and bought a bunch of books from abebooks.com and thriftbooks.com and some from independent sellers through amazon. I bought copies of Braiding Sweetgrass and I want to share those along with some bell hooks and books on foraging and indigenous wisdom. Moving through my Little Free Library (Charter #128504) soon! (If you're interested in the larger library check out Julie's Books via the Bookshelf app - Mobile only) Beyond books here are some more awesome shops to support:


This is my go to for soaps, hand sanitizers, and insect repellant in the cabins. I love the lip balms too and the gifts sets are awesome too. Exhibit B (for beards):


Freya and I found this spot when we were down in the Detroit area visiting my mom. This place had such wonderfully curated gifts and I love that they have a site and can ship directly to you! You know I love books and sharing knowledge. Plus, they have a ton of Stocking Stuffers and they offer free gift wrapping! If you can make it into the shop definitely go check it out or shop online anytime.


Here's a little something on my wishlist.

I love A Pretty Cool Hotel Tour. Maybe someday I can get them to do a pretty cool cabin tour up here at Air & Sun Acres!


One of my favorite artists for beautiful inspired and powerful jewelry and fun colorful designs is Xanthia Pink.


I've been working with Receptra Naturals for the last couple of years and I can't say enough good things about their products. Hemp wellness that really helps what ails you. Serious Relief is the best selling line and the Rest Gummies are an all time favorite. We all know someone who could use better rest, more relaxation, and some relief. (These are affiliate links, when you click through and buy from Receptra I get a little commission too!) Use the code: MamaK for 15% off too.


I love these Sustainable Compostable Phone Cases.


I encountered these gorgeous and useful brooms on a recent visit to Colorado. I love them all so much and the family history and story of this inspired business makes supporting them a real treat.


I've also curated some fun gift ideas in our Gift Shop here on the site. Check out some of our Air & Sun Acres Swag and inspired items that remind me of our connection with the land and nature.


Would you like to give the gift of an experience instead of stuff? Order a gift card or post card with a special discount to send to someone who deserves a little time to retreat to nature maybe you?


That's all for now! I may add to this list and if you have any favorites to share feel free to reach out, comment, or tag us in posts on social too. We're happy to share the love.


Thanks for reading and happy shopping!
