Holiday Gift Guide: For the Cool Kid on Your List
All kids really want is time. A walk, a book read, some time when your face shines on their face – truly, they are the easiest person on the list. But, if you also feel the need to gift, because they have you in their life, on some level they too care about what they wear and where their stuff comes from. We’ve made the ideal list for the hip future changemaker:
The Fashionista: Malu Organic is an ethical brand that uses the softest, fair-trade organic cotton and hemp fabrics with environmentally friendly, solvent-free inks and natural dyes. Designed and printed in Malibu and produced in downtown LA, using fabrics made in the USA, or from fair-trade sources, they take sustainability as seriously as they take fashion. We love the hip separates for boys and girls, plus the fact that many pieces are unisex. **Win a $125 gift card from Malu Organics with our #magnifecoholidaygiveaway on Instagram**
