TRUBlanket Weighted Blanket

Comfort at its finest – and softest! We all know weighted blankets are all the rage to get a better night’s sleep. TRUBlanket is a premium weighted blanket, with a luxurious, minky soft plush outer cover and a 400 thread-count cotton interior blanket. Designed to feel like you are getting a full-body hug (thanks to an infusion of real glass beads), TRUBlanket provides a warm and cozy cocoon-like feel. Weighted blankets are known to help with sleep issues, restless leg syndrome, muscle aches, and more. Available in 15 and 20-pound weight. Proceeds from every sale of a TRUBlanket is donated to Tru Lite Foundation, which financially supports families going through the adoption process.

Mustard Seed Jewelry

And for us… spreading joy with glam gifts that give back! We’re loving Mustard Seed Jewelry because it allows you to experience the joy of paying it forward this holiday season. Mustard seeds are considered to be a symbol of great faith that can be more than enough to move a mountain despite their tiny size. This lovely line features one of a kind, stunning pieces adorned with an inlay of organic mustard seeds - all painstaking placed by hand inside glimmering disks with crystals and stones that form the base for handcrafted necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.

Each piece comes with “Seed Cash” in a tiny envelope filled with two $1 bills from the designer’s personal bank account, along with a printed card instructing the recipient to give the money away through a random act of kindness. The company hopes its Seed Cash will be a small step in creating a kinder world that will eventually inspire more acts of kindness to those who could use an unexpected lift in their day. The gorgeous, gifty jewelry is available online for $100
