Here’s a handful of products the gaan + co team is extra thankful for this November!
Hum Nutrition Travel-Sized Vitamin Packs [$35.00, humnutrition.com]
Colder months can do a number on our overall health. Since we love a good travel-sized necessity, stock up on some of the many vita-packs by Hum Nutrition. We love the “Runway Ready” pack – 30 days worth of on-the-go nutrients targeted at your hair, skin and nails, always the first impacted by winter’s harsh temp and dry air. These daily supplements are packed with Omega 3, Omega 6, Antioxidants, Vitamin E and Biotin, specially crafted to enhance your glow, strength, and shine.
If you’re traveling anywhere the week of Thanksgiving (see our FAST FACT of the month), we feel for ya. But we bring much needed (liquid) help. Beverage innovators W&P want you to relax, warm up and make the most out of your winter travels with the Hot Toddy Carry-On Cocktail Kit. This compact bundle of joy is a plane-ready kit with all you need to mix two drinks, just add whiskey & hot water. It comes with everything you need: a recipe card, ginger syrup, cinnamon sticks, lemon packets, a travel-sized bar spoon and even a classy linen coaster, all packed into a pocket-sized, fancy evergreen tin. And let’s not overlook the many other opportunities to whip out this brilliant little kit...crisp winter hike, backyard family football game, post Turkey Trot? The question isn’t why…it’s why not?!?
Packable Down Pillow / Blanket [$65.00, Riley Home]
We’ve all been there. We’re traveling and the only thing missing is that super soft down pillow or comforter that makes the bed feel like home at the end of a long day. We’ve got a find to step up your snooze wherever your adventure takes you! The folks at Riley Home created this clever, dual-purpose pillow-blanket that makes a packable, luxurious down experience while traveling practical and possible! And Bargain Hunters, unite! Riley Home will also give first time buyers a coupon for $25.00 off, slashing the price of this quality find to a mere $40.00. Sweet dreams!
Even if you didn’t make it to Stockholm this month, you can still hit up one of our favorite spots, DEDICATED, via the interwebs. DEDICATED is known for their super soft, organic cotton, fair-trade shirts, made with pride in Sweden. These T’s are fashionable, and often tout messages worth supporting. We love this versatile Human Rights shirt with a pattern of fine scripted handwriting that showcases the many ways to we are all equal as human beings. It’s a great layering piece and comes in many variations. Make sure to click around a bit…you’ll leave with a full heart, and shopping cart!
Outdoor Fellow No.1 Fireplace + Clove Candle [$37.00 for 6 oz. size, Outdoorfellow.com]
The scents of the season really set the vibe, and we’re here for the cozy, fireside nostalgia that creates the perfect warm ambiance on a cold winter day. NY-based Outdoor Fellow® and their No. 1 Fireplace + Clove scented candle will have everyone asking, “Where’s the fireplace?” – but surprise! “We don’t have one!” This candle is made with cedar wood, clove, and black pepper, creating the essence of snuggling up by the fire, and you don’t have to chop a single piece of wood. They are hand poured in New York City and made with an all-natural coconut wax blend designed for extended burning time (40-50 hours!). 5% of all Outdoor Fellow purchases support The Trust for Public Land, and also make great gifts!
TrailHeads Women’s Touchscreen Gloves [$30.00, Amazon]
The right cold-weather gloves are essential and we think we’ve found ours. Trailheads® has mastered comfort, durability, and convenience with these touchscreen compatible gloves. The Polartec stretch fabric is wind and cold resistant, while the super soft inner lining is moisture wicking (great for running or outdoor winter activities). Your hands will stay dry and super warm. You’ll also be able to snap a pic, send a quick text or check the afternoon weather without skipping a beat because unlike many gloves that promise to be touchscreen-friendly, these are truly touchscreen optimized. Trailheads has a 100% money back guarantee if you have any issues with the product, but based on their nearly perfect Amazon reviews – you may want to buy two pairs!
