‘Tis the season when friends and families are making plans to get together, share stories and reconnect. It’s also the time of year when the malls are filled again, online shopping spikes and gifts are exchanged with the people we love. And, it’s the perfect occasion to celebrate you! It’s an act of self-kindness to pat yourself on the back for all the challenges you’ve overcome this year, for the successes you’ve had and to remind yourself of just how awesome you are!
Here is our Faze round-up of great ideas for you to gift yourself this year…
Platinum Art Fine Jewelry
As strong, empowered young women we don’t need to wait for someone to gift us fine jewelry. Platinum Art creates custom made pieces to help you celebrate your accomplishments with stunning pieces that showcase your unique personality and impeccable taste.

Theirs is the story of a lot of people like you: people who know they want to be proud of the choices they make, including what they wear. People who know that getting everything cheaper and faster has a cost that we can no longer afford to pay as a global community, and that in the end, it’s the most vulnerable people and environments who pay the highest price for it all. Brave Soles up-cycles old tires and discarded leather to create beautiful handmade and sustainable items that not only look amazing, but makes the statement that you care!
Our vision is vital to how we see things; literally and figuratively. While choosing such an important necessity you can also make a statement about what you value. Like you, Dresden Vision is passionate about doing things in an ethical, socially and environmentally sustainable way, and they do so while providing good vision at an affordable price for everyone. They have a zero-waste, closed-loop manufacturing system where they recycle their plastic manufacturing waste, their fully nylon frame and pin design results in a staggering 99% reduction in CO2 emissions, compared with traditional metal-hinged glasses, and their packaging is made with high recycled content cardboard that is also fully recyclable.
The DivaCup is truly a personal gift that keeps on giving. With its ingenious design to help you better cope with your period, you’ll enjoy up to 12 hours of leak-free protection, plus you can reuse the DivaCup for up to a year, which means you’ll save money (yaasss!), while reducing your eco-footprint by diverting waste from landfills. And as if that’s not enough, you’re supporting a company that advocates for menstrual care access and education through their DivaCares program. DivaCares is committed to donating 15,000 DivaCups by early next year. With three sizes to choose from: Model 0, 1 and 2 you’re sure to find the one that best suits your body.

Snuggable Weighted Blanket
A great sleep will have you energized and ready to conquer the day! Weighted blankets are used to provide “deep-touch pressure” to improve the quality of your sleep. The Snuggable Weighted Blanket helps to release oxytocin into the body, similar to the effects of hugging and cuddling and encourages cortisol levels to decrease, which is a necessary part of restful sleep. The Snuggle brand available at Sleep Country comes in 15lb and 7lb versions with a cotton cover that easily removes for washing.
Have a wonderful holiday season and treat yourself!
