If you’re looking for gifts that are incredible to receive, while directly supporting the makers, doers, and creators behind them, I’ve got some ideas for you!
Supporting artists and changemakers who spark inspiration, catalyze change, and create products that soothe the soul feels like an act of love and justice in itself, and I’m happy to share some of my personal favorites with you here.
Cheers to giving soulful gifts from the heart this holiday season.
Prints + Creative Inspiration
As my own gift to you – I am offering 20% off my brand new line of giclee prints on paper until the end of the year. (Please note, all orders need to be placed by December 14th to arrive in time for the holidays.)
I’m also happy to report that we have beautiful Gift Certificates available for my online painting classes and other goodies on my website. You can choose to give a specific class or a gift certificate in any amount. Give the gift of creative inspiration that keeps on giving!
Five percent of all online class sales in December will be donated to support the water protectors at Standing Rock.
Adorn with Intention
My dear friend Lynx’s jewelry is evidence of her love of color, texture and form. Her work is made with her hands and her heart, and it’s my absolute favorite. Don’t we all need a pair of protective metal shields or gorgeous beaded earrings right about now?
Care for the Heart!
Laurel, of Rambling Rose Botanicals, has a gift with herbs – turning plants into medicine that soothe the heart and inspire the mind. We serve Laurel’s teas at every Bloom True workshop, and each cup is a reason to linger a bit longer and breathe a bit deeper.
CultureStrike is an incredible network of 200 + socially engaged artists who empower each other to dream big, disrupt the status quo, and envision a truly just world rooted in shared humanity. They provide space and funding for professional and creative development, promote shared strategy with movement groups, and spearheaded dozens of events and campaigns. They are a great organization to donate to, and they also have beautiful art for purchase from their roster of artists.
This amazing organization works with communities around the globe to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth. Every Christmas growing up, my parents used to donate an animal in my name, and I thought it was the coolest thing to give a goat or a cow to a family in need!
Wishing you all peace, nourishment, and inspiration always.
