I am mostly able to find them, but when I cannot, I am scrambling to pick something up. This year, I am determined to keep on track and start finding things early. As well, I’m purchasing new items that I know will be perfect for someone this year. Check out the items below that I know you will love too.

The values of Hawaii, where Elise has family connections, strongly influenced the SKWAD brand. These values are reflected in the brand’s mission. SKWAD is committed to environmental responsibility, choosing packaging and ingredients with the planet in mind. Their marine-safe formulations are custom-made, and they utilize innovative technology like recycled raw ingredients to ensure sustainability.
