All-Natural All American Mommy Gift Ideas


Make a statement with clothing that makes a difference! Obli offers clothing for baby, kid’s and even for doggie! All their styles are hip and trendy styles with positive eco messages. Super cute! All of their garments are made with 100% certified organic cotton and manufactured using fair trade practices.

About Michelle Young and Melissa Blanco: As sisters, we had always dreamed of forming a family company. One that would provide us the opportunity to do work that mattered in a creative environment while keeping our family a priority. As parents to 3 boys and 2 dogs between the two of us, launching an organic clothing company dedicated to providing hip and trendy styles for children and pets while being stewards of the environment fit the bill perfectly.

Drawing on each others strengths, we truly enjoy working together. However, nothing compares to the feeling that our hard work and dedication is going to something that we believe in and ultimately will contribute to the betterment of our environment. Plus, the company provides us with a legitimate excuse to give our husbands for the endless hours spent on the phone!

Obli means On Borrowed Land, Inc. We wanted the name to be short and sweet but we also wanted it to have meaning. OBLI is fun, but it also stands as a reminder that, in the end, we are all truly just borrowing the land and passing it on to the next generation. Click here to shop!

Dreaming of a green holiday? IgnaFire Chocolates help by providing unprocessed, whole-bean chocolates wrapped in completely biodegradable packaging. We had the chance to sample them and they are fantastic. ALL of the packaging is eco-friendly! All printed information is on dissolvable potato paper which washes down the kitchen sink and the chocolates are wrapped in a custom cellulose bag that composts in 45-60 days.

IgnaFire Chocolates are dark chocolates made from whole, stone ground cacao beans that have been lightly sweetened with Mexican sugar. No cacao butter is removed or added, and they avoid extensive heating and industrial processing of most other chocolate, keeping all the healthful flavanols and antioxidants that occur naturally in the bean, along with its natural flavor. No dairy ingredients are added, so they are also a great choice for vegans.

IngaFire chocolates are available as chocolates or ground powder for making hot chocolate. Each are available in four different flavors: cacao, cinnamon, vanilla, and moka. They make the perfect gift or stocking stuffer for anyone!

These chocolates are manufactured and sold by Ingabar, LLC, a Texas based company committed to producing unprocessed chocolates and trash-free packaging. For more information or to order your very own eco-friendly, delectable treat, click here!

SKOY is an eco-friendly household cleaning cloth that outlasts 15 rolls of paper towels. Wow! This cloth is 100% biodegradable, natural, and re-usable. They are washer and dryer safe, which means you can use them over and over again. This is a product I use and love!

Here’s a fun fact: Did you know that 2.5 million tons of paper towels go into landfills annually? That is shocking!

SKOY was founded by Michelle Lundgvist and Karen Petersen. In all their experience in cleaning kitchens and bathrooms, they were using products they weren’t satisfied with, so they decided to provide a product that was great and viable.

Think of all the benefits you’ll be providing by using SKOY in your home! Get a 4 pack for only $5.99. Click here to learn more.

AloSun is a division of Affinity Beauty Group Aloe Creme Laboratories. AloSun was founded in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in 1953 and was one of the first to incorporate the anti-aging properties of Aloe Vera into a skincare line. Over 50 years later, they continue to bring generations of consumers tried-and-true products while pioneering the latest advancements in skin and suncare. I’ve had the opportunity to try them and I’ll tell you it’s true! There are great benefits to Aloe Vera!

AloSun Spa Hydrating Hair Mask – I’m a natural blonde and I’ll admit that my stylist just enhances my natural color. Well, that extra processing causes my hair to get dry and brittle. The hydrating hair mask does wonders to transform dry hair into lustrous hair! Build-up free formula means Hydrating Hair Mask is a perfect way to get sleek shiny hair everyday!

AloSun Moisture-Lock Organic Body Oil – an ultra hydrating body oil used as a protective barrier, sealing in essential moisture to leave skin soft and silky all day long. Winter is on it’s way and that means dry, flaky skin. Ugh! Just a few drops after your shower will lock in moisture all day! It’s absorbed so effectively that you can also use it on your scalp and it will add luster to your hair without leaving a greasy residue.

Skin Buff - foaming exfoliator and one of the only scrubs on the market designed to be a perfect polish for both face and body. The gentle complex contains tiny micro-granules, which dislodge blackheads, debris, and dead skin cells, then cleanse pores and sweep away bacteria-causing materials. Skin is perfectly balanced: free of excess oil, brightened, tightened, and refined. AND feeling fresh!

Body Bare Penetrating Emollient - emollient-rich crème that soothes, moisturizes, and protects skin for premature aging and an effective blend of proven skin conditioners. It’s made with sunflower oil, vitamin E, and raw Aloe Vera – known for its deep penetrating ability and effectiveness in delivering lost hydration directly to the source.

Clarifying Hair and Body Shampoo – another all-in-one product that simplifies your shower routine. Balanced for all hair and skin types. This invigorating body and scalp system serves up a fragrant lather, restores shine, and helps extend color!

Each of these products sells for around $5.00 each and would make an excellent gift or stocking stuffer for any mommy! They also offer a rewards program for their customers. Click here for more information on their products!
