It’s the most wonderful time of the year and we wanted to share some fabulous brands that we came across that are not only killing it with their wares but close to our hearts for the causes they give back to! There is something for everyone here from the little ones to the chocolate lovers on your list! Without further ado we bring you five faves for our ‘Luxe List’ this holiday season.
The Brand: Cuddle+Kind
Cuddle+Kind is a collection of beautiful hand knit dolls on a mission. They make our ‘Luxe List’ for being carefully handcrafted in Peru or Nepal under sustainable, equitable and fair trade conditions. Made with the finest of natural cotton these are heirloom quality pieces that beg to be handed down from generation to generation. They’re truly the most gorgeous dolls you’ll ever see.
The Give: The Woodgates are on a mission to feed the children and we mean a million meals in a year! Cuddle+Kind began this journey after watching a documentary on childhood hunger. They wanted to do this by creating a sustainable stream of giving that didn’t rely on donations.
We encourage you to read the full story ( and the stats) here.
The Brand: The Gift Refinery
The Gift Refinery is on our ‘Luxe List’ for their fabulous ability to deliver luxury goods that are curated, conscious and Canadian! ( Like us) This box is tops with support for Canadian brands and the up and comers. They offer a variety of different boxes from self care to the crown jewels and everything in between. We may be partial to ‘The Cozy Home’ box. With 7-10 items per season you’re in for a treat.
The Give: This box is great to give or to keep and all the while supports local charities and not for profits. It’s a win/win purchase. 😉
The Brand: GlobeIn
GlobeIn is a purpose driven company supporting entrepreneurial artisans from around the world. They’re committed to transparency and sustainable partnerships. They have a gorgeous selection to shop from directly or a monthly subscription box service of carefully chosen hand- crafted, artisan products that make our ‘Luxe List’ for a variety of reasons. You’ll see when you visit their site. With Deepak Chopra on their advisory you know you’re in for an ethical shopping win!
The Give: The give comes in because GlobIn has partnered with artisanal entrepreneurs from around the globe and this supports individuals in their community.
The Brand: Seattle Chocolate
What’s not luxe about good chocolate? Seattle Chocolate makes our ‘Luxe List’ for any chocolate lover. This decadent treat is not for the faint of heart with ethically sourced chocolate and clean ingredients in every batch. They have some fabulous holiday gift sets in the Mistletoe Moose Box and Boughs of Chocolate here.
The Give: Seattle Chocolate gives back in a variety of different ways to the community through product offerings and as of 2012, their sister company Jcoco, gives back by donating a fresh serving of food to those in need through the food banks in Washington, California and New York.

Well, there ya have it! We know we’ll carefully be following these brands for time to come and adding to our ‘Luxe List’ as we go! If you haven’t heard, we are passionate about giving back to The Canucks Autism Network with every purchase of a Luxe Lounger. What brands do you love? We’d love to hear from you, here.
