The holidays are just around the corner which means the gift giving season is here!! I mean Buddy The Elf says it best… “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!” Beat the long lines and holiday rush and spend time watching your favorite holiday movies fireside with family and friends. By shopping local these amazing kelp-based products will make the best gifts. Now why are we still waiting here...let’s jump into this guide!

Beautiful Things

Westport, MA.

The perfect stocking stuffers can be found at this beautiful boutique in the heart of Westport. Madeleine the store owner is now selling kelp-based soaps and kelp candles. The scent is clean and fresh. Pair the candle and soap together and cellophane them with a bow and add in a Beautiful Things gift card, so your special someone can come back and shop once they run out. A beautiful gift that keeps on giving.

Atlantic Seafarms

Saco, ME.

Atlantic Sea Farms is noted for their kelp-based products and if you have a kelp loving friend then this will be their favorite gift. Their Atlantic Sea Farms variety pack gives them a taste of all their favorites. In this pack you will get some of their cubes and jarred kelp specialties such as kelp salad. For someone who is 21 years and older you can even add in their favorite bottle of wine to accompany this gift for an extra surprise.

Heritage Seaweed

Portland, ME.

Stay in and order right from your computer. For those that are a foodie they will love receiving a basket filled with kelp treats. From kelp jerky, which is vegan, gluten free, soy free and high in fiber and protein to dried seaweeds and energy bars, this is perfect to put together a basket. There is even kelp lip balm. With so many little finds on this website it is assured that this will make great gifts for all ages.

Barton Seaver

If you have book lovers in your life, I suggest gifting them one of author Barton Seaver’s books. You can even add in a blanket and some fancy hot chocolate. My favorite is the Superfoods Seagreens book which is packed with go to recipes that are healthy and nutritious. He has a wide variety of other titles as well such as, The Joy of Seafood, which features more than 900 recipes.

Scottish Fine Soaps

From soaps, shampoos and lotions you can browse their whole kelp-based line. The line features a wide array of shower gels, hand lotions, bath soak, bath and shower oil and more. They even have gift packs already made for you for those that need a little helping hand. If looking for select products you can customize your own and DIY the basket at home yourself. The products are noted to be a luxury as it states on their website, “This inspires the swirling aqua design of the bold packaging, an innovative twist on a classic Paisley pattern. With a clean, fresh and light fragrance, it’s reminiscent of a cool sea breeze.”

With our gift giving guide for your kelp-based holiday shopping you can save time and pour yourself a cup of hot cocoa. The best part is you can get all your shopping done early and enjoy this magical time of year. Happy shopping and Happy Holidays!
