Jen’s Favorite Things – The 4th Annual Holiday Gift Guide
It’s the most wonderful time of the year—gift guide time! We’re going to go ahead and give 2020 the No, Thank You Award, but we can still try to make the holidays merry and bright. And to help you do that, we bring you the 4th installment of Jen’s Favorite Things! Every year, we shine a spotlight on brands we love that also give back, so we do the most good with the dollars we’re already going to spend (and PS: so many of these companies are women-owned!). So grab a cup of cocoa while Jen and her sisters, Lindsay and Cortney, share 12 incredible companies with amazing products—everything from coffee and candles to comfy robes and socks and Jen’s signature feather earrings. Plus, each brand has a special offer just for you, so you can stock up on great gifts and also *save some cash.* Look alive, campers, it’s time to do some Christmas shopping!
Welcome to the 4th annual Holiday Gift Guide on the For the Love Podcast. Cheers to you!
Let’s tell the truth. This is a weird year. We’re going to go ahead and give 2020 the No, Thank You Award.
But we can still try our best to make this season merry and bright. Example: my tree is already up. And it’s been up for a couple weeks. I’m not sorry about it.
My sisters Lindsay and Cortney are here with me, and we want to walk you through some pretty incredible companies and products. So let me set up the framework for you, if this is your first time in.
Four years ago, we started this episode to shine a spotlight on companies that have giving back as a central spoke of their mission, so that you and I, who are already in the season of spending and giving and gift giving, basically do the most good with the dollars we’re already going to spend. We already have all these gifts to buy, we’re already planning on it, so this is like a double down. We give to somebody else, and the company gives to somebody else too.
So here’s what you can count on here today. We have 12 awesome brands to bring you today. Every single one of them has an amazing story, an amazing purpose behind it. You’re going to feel good about all of it, all right?
And here’s what else you need to know: every single company we’re about to highlight and the products that we’re going to show you have special offers literally just for the For the Love Podcast listeners. You’re going to get a sale today, that I can promise you. And a lot of these offers are good through the end of the year, and some of them even beyond.
So without further ado, here is your one-stop-shop for all things holiday gifts!
