Hollywood Hippy has been doing a ton of networking and cruising of the internets for the freshest brands coming up right now. And we curated them into an original gift guide series since it’s that festive time of year!
Staying true to our ‘Put Your Money Where Your Heart Is’ mantra, these brands are not the business as usual types: They value a thriving global community and planet just like we do.
31 Bits Jewelry
Fact: The name “31 Bits” stems from Proverbs 31, where a diligent woman is described caring for her family. The bits refers to the beading in each peace of jewelry. This company’s goal is to empower women in Uganda and Indonesia by creating fairly made, beautiful jewelry. Talk about a gift with a story.
Urban Knot + Waverly Knot ($99).
Sustainable fashion practiced right here and right now. Reformation is based in Los Angeles, with the splurge option of a holiday dress you didn’t know you needed. Trust me, you need it. Why? It’s velvet season.
Irving Dress ($248).
It’s a rare occasion to know a woman who doesn’t appreciate luxury skin care, fragrances and cosmetics. Korres is all that with the added commitment of honoring Greek apothecary traditions. We love the option of purchasing products to help support local Greek farmers and their sustainability methods.*
Below: Eau de Toilette, Vanilla Fresia Lychee ($38.50). Ageless Saffron Elixir – Limited Edition* ($98).
Drift Light is doing so many things right. Their line of intimate bralettes and undies are understatedly sexy, and created using renewable resources like bamboo cotton. And in addition to that, every item sold allows for basic undergarments to be donated to the needy. We even have a special Brand Spotlight article on our STYLE channel for your reading pleasure.
True North Bralette ($50).
Go vintage this year with a luxury collectible from Decades, a designer consignment store located in the heart of Los Angeles. If you see something you love here, snatch it up before someone else does–these items are one of a kind!

Chanel Braided Hoop Earrings ($475)
Fashionkind and Hollywood Hippy might as well be a unified front. We certainly agree on one thing: “You don’t have to compromise your personal style in order to make a difference.” PREACH. Fashionkind, or fashion for human kind, travels the world to curate the best mix of ethically-produced and sustainable luxury products. This holiday season, know where your fashion is sourced from; know you are supporting ethical practices and human rights.
Veja, Tennis Shoes Gold ($130).
Let’s keep this simple. Blueplanet Eyewear is all about being eco-friendly, planet friendly, and fun eyewear designs inspired by their Santa Barbara roots. Give the gift of sunnies.
Everlane wants you to know about the factories where your clothes are made, what your clothes cost to make and then ask why. Have you ever shopped somewhere where you can see the true cost of what your buying AND the mark up? Thanks, Everlane. For this, we heart you.
The Premium Ribbed Cashmere Turtleneck ($255).
Equal Uprise is all about timeless, everyday items ethically made by local artisans. Hats, leather bags, hammocks and woolen throws. Tis the season for all things cozy.
