1. Coyuchi Pismo Organic Blanket — $248

This GOTS–certified organic cotton throw from Coyuchi is the perfect mid-weight blanket for cozying up with year-round! It’s also multi-functional: it can be layered between a sheet and duvet for warmth, or shown off as a bedspread or throw.

Arielle’s recycled wool sweater is a soft and cozy gift for staying warm through even the chilliest days this season. This piece from Arielle was made ethically from entirely recycled fibers from discarded sweaters, blankets, and fabric scraps, meaning no additional dyes, water, or chemicals were needed to craft this sweater!

4. Studio Variously Katha Organic Throw Blanket — $259

Cozy, elegant, and sustainably-made, Studio Variously’s striking Katha Throw made from rain-fed organic cotton drapes beautifully over the end of a bed or sofa and is the perfect blanket to have on hand for wrapping up with through the chilly months.

Be warned: you might have to buy a second one for yourself when you see it in person…or maybe it becomes a gift just for you.

5. Softwear Obsidian Pullover and Modal Joggers — $78

Softwear’s eco-friendly loungewear is made with an ultra-comfy fabric and designed to flatter, with features such as a mid-rise waistband and anti-bunch drawstring. Plus, all of the brand’s pieces are designed with people and the planet in mind, too. Their pieces are ethically made in Brooklyn, New York from Lenzing Modal and are dyed with non-toxic dyes.

6. Chilote House Shoe Slippers — $78

One of our most popular gift items, these Chilote house shoe slippers are a true crowd-pleaser, good for anyone on your list. (We even have a baby-sized version for the littlest ones in your life!)

Each pair comes with a beautiful story, too. Chilote’s house shoes are hand-knitted in small batches by women in Patagonia, Chile, from locally sourced Patagonian sheep’s wool, and the vegetable-tanned salmon leather used in the soles is an upcycled by-product of the salmon fishing industry.

Perfect for laying out as a picnic blanket at the park or wrapping around yourself by the campfire, Nipomo’s handmade blankets can be used for any season. All of the brand’s blankets are consciously handwoven in Mexico by skilled artisans using upcycled yarn from the garment industry. Each blanket also comes with a vegetable-tanned leather strap for easy carrying!

8. Minna Dunes Scarf in Lilac — $265

Minna’s handwoven dunes scarf is the ultimate fair trade cozy gift. Slowly and thoughtfully woven from 100% wool, this scarf will keep your loved ones seriously warm. Each scarf is handcrafted by a women-led weaving co-op in Uruguay where artisans earn fair wages and work in safe, healthy conditions.

9. Coyuchi Unisex Air Weight Organic Robe — $128

Thick, plush, and made from organically grown cotton, this robe from Coyuchi is a true treat! The luxurious-feeling, sustainably made robe comes in slate, ocean, or alpine white, and features an adjustable belt as well as side pockets. We’ve heard from multiple customers that this robe is like walking around in a cloud. Their words, but we’d agree.

10. Kyrgies Women’s Wool Slippers and Men’s Wool Slippers — $89

Another one of our favorite cozy gift ideas for the holiday season, Kyrgies slippers are consciously handmade with sustainably harvested wool felt, in Kyrgyzstan, using centuries-old felting techniques. The thick, natural, vegetable-tanned leather soles provide great arch support and ensure each pair is built to last. Walking around your house or apartment has never felt this good!
