A special thank you to those of who sent in your gift ideas and suggestions for this season.
If you’re looking for a gift idea, our annual gift guide features a wide variety of gift ideas below:
For Your Skin
Ballsy, the maker of men’s grooming products is bringing their balls out attitude to safety and sanitizing! In response to consumer demand, they have newly debuted the new Plague Slayer hand sanitizer. It has 70% Ethyl Alcohol, soothing Aloe, no fragrance and has a super fun packaging! Plus, a portion of all profits are being donated to support healthcare workers.
Aú Natural Skinfood Manuka Honey Hand Cream
Your hands NEED THIS! And it’s new. A soothing and healing hand cream that combines the antibacterial properties of Active Manuka Honey 16+ with anti-inflammatory Manuka Oil to help heal and protect the skin from infection.
Check out the new non-medical grade fitted face mask by SwaddleDesigns. They’ve built on the success of their 2-layer cotton flannel “bubble print” mask and have made one that’s even better. Available in three layers of cotton chambray, the new design comes in the colors of Charcoal Gray and Denim with Black and Pink arriving soon. Designed by a nurse, the mask is made from 100% cotton, woven fabric with 180 thread count, which studies show is best for airborne particulate filtering performance. (In a lab environment, cotton woven fabrics out-performed cotton knit, polyester, and fleece fabrics.) The face mask also features:
- Adjustable, Bendable Nose Piece for snug fit
- Soft round ear elastic for comfort
- Two Sizes: Medium – Fits smaller adults and teens and Adult – One size fits most adults
- Machine Wash and Dry
When Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti recommended that the city’s residents wear face masks when out in public, Los Angeles-based clothing manufacturer, Indie Source, pivoted immediately. The manufacturing company nimbly adjusted its production capabilities to construct and ship out fabric face masks to those in need.
Indie Source collaborated with physician consultant Dr. Jordan Lee Tate, MD, MPH to create the Independence mask. For every mask that is purchased, Indie Source donates a mask to a worker in need, which includes hospitals, restaurants and service industry workers.
The Independence masks feature:
· 100% woven cotton outer & inner + comfortable elastic trim
· One size fits all (2.75″ height x 8/14″ nose x 7 1/8 chin). Color & fabric will vary.
· Machine washable
· Pocket opening above nose bridge for filter – filters are available to purchase separately.
The bottom line? When purchasing a mask from Indie Source, your audience not only protects themselves and those around them, but they are also ensuring that a small business can continue to employ a team of talented Los Angeles based garment workers. With their purchase, they are also guaranteeing that those on the front-lines of the pandemic will be protected with Indie Sources 1 for 1 donation program.

Purpose and a Paycheck
When most people think of entrepreneurs, they picture young professionals at the start of their careers. But right now, people in their 50s and 60s are turning that theory on its head, launching new businesses at nearly twice the rate of those in the 20s.
Chris Farrell, veteran journalist and senior economics contributor to “Marketplace,” has been monitoring this grassroots movement for years. Now, he’s proving that our aging population is far from a burden to the economy; in fact, they’re saving it.
Filled with scholarly research and first-hand reporting, in Purpose and a Paycheck (HarperCollins Leadership) Farrell reveals:
- Why our aging population is one of the most powerful economic forces in the coming decades
- The negative impact of age discrimination, and why we should value the skills of experienced workers
- How workers in the second half of life are just as creative and productive as their younger peers—if not more so
- Why the leading edge of the ‘work longer movement’ is self-employment and entrepreneurship
- The growing trend among older adults to do well and do good by finding careers with nonprofits
