Navy + White Charcuterie Board Bundle

I get so many compliments on these charcuterie boards at parties! Made from sustainably sourced reclaimed wood board, distinguished by strips of contrasting timber. The slats have maintained their exquisite organic beauty with exposed edges to reveal the natural wood color and characteristics. 

Ideal for use as a charcuterie plate – showcasing bread, cheese and/or fruit – these boards can also be used in lieu of a traditional platter to serve desserts, appetizers or beverages.  We also love to use these versatile board as a decorative accent styled together in a kitchen leaning above the stove, on counters, or on a center island.

The Always Pan

I have two Always Pans (three if you count the one my son took to college) and the Perfect Pot. These outstandingly versatile ceramic coated pans uses a safe coating that is free from PTFE and PFAS. It comes with a steamer basket but you can also opt for their spruce steamer.

Right now you can get the Always Pan for just $99. Or you can get the Always Pan and The Perfect Pot bundled (the Homecook Duo) for $210. Those two pieces alone can replace your old (or teflon coated) cookware.

Glass Storage Containers with Bamboo Lids

These reusable safe glass containers (in many shapes and sizes) store leftovers, lunches, and even knick knacks. Many glass storage containers have plastic lids, but these are bamboo, which are safe and easily stackable. These are one of our favorite ways to store fresh foods without plastic.

Magnetic Measuring Spoon Set

These magnetic spoons let you use one spoon at a time and then they nest magnetically together for easy storage. Quickly grab the spoon you need without having to fumble with opening and closing a ring.

Dual sided, the oval end is narrow to fit into most spice jars. They also have U.S. and metric measurement markings that are easy to read and won’t fade or rub off.

Stainless Steel Nontoxic Air Fryer

Many air fryers are made from black plastic. Black plastic often comes from recycled electronic, which can contain toxic substances like the flame retardant bromine; antimony; and heavy metals like lead, cadmium, and mercury.

Choosing a stainless steel option is much safer. This air fryer has a larger capacity and has a large door for easy use.

Bali Cookbook / Tablet Holder

Add a pop of color to your countertop with this chic cookbook and tablet holder. Made of reclaimed wood and finished with 100% plant-based, food-safe wax.

The stand boasts a contrasting slat and shelf with lip on the stand’s angled surface to keep your page.

The Very Best Organic Mattress

The holidays are a great time to splurge on a big gift. Especially one you really need!

After 11 years of research, I truly believe Naturepedic is the best organic mattress. Their commitment to safety goes beyond GOTS certification and has strict standards to provide only the highest quality mattresses.

Not only are their individual materials certified, but the finished mattress is certified as well. Use Greenchild15 to get 15% off the purchase of their top-rated, certified organic mattresses and accessories.

Botero Cheese Tool Set

This cheese tool set helps make the perfect holiday charcuterie board a breeze. It features a small spade knife for spreading soft cheeses, a perforated blade for slicing semi-soft types, a flat chisel for breaking apart the hardest cheeses, and a stout serving fork. 

Lead-Free Bowl with Wooden Lid

Too pretty to hide in a cabinet, this ceramic bowl with ceramic spoon and wooden lid is functional and stylish in any kitchen.

Lead-free so it’s perfectly safe for food. You might also want one to keep sugar scrubs or epsom salts in your bathroom.

Molcajete with Tortilla Basket

My favorite thing about this volcanic stone bowl is how amazing it is at smashing a not-fully-ripe avocado into the perfect guacamole. The basket is always a hit on taco bar night, too.

This volcanic stone mortar and pestle can go in the oven, and picks up flavors over time to enhance your recipes. This will be an heirloom to pass along to grandkids.

Bamboo Tong Set


These lightweight bamboo tongs in three convenient sizes will be a staple in any kitchen. Bamboo is a quickly renewable and safe resource, making it one of the best healthy home gifts.

Schitt’s Creek Inspired Wooden Spoons

Bring a little joy and fun into your kitchen with these Schitt’s Creek inspired wooden spoons. The perfect gift for Moira and David Rose fans.

This set comes wrapped in tissue paper and tied with baker’s twine and Rose Apothecary tag – ready to gift! Or Schitt’s Creek inspired kitchen towels are fun, too. We love “I have asked you thrice now for a towel.”

South Seas Side Bar Cart

Year round, this bar cart stays by the door that leads out to our lanai and holds beach towels and pool gear. But this photo is how it looks for our annual Derby party.

Inspired by a mid-century antique, this chic little side cart pays homage to the textural beauty of handwoven rattan. You could use it for lemonade or kids’ drinks on a summer day, a night stand, a towel or toiletry holder in a bathroom, guest room supplies, or just about anything.

Vitamix Blender

One of the most important healthy kitchen essentials is a good blender. We use our Vitamix almost every day.

High powered blenders are exceptional at making fruit smoothies, green smoothies, nut milk, pasta sauces, raw soups, dressings, and even grinding coffee beans.
