- Solios watch with optional custom engraving. Designed and curated with Mother Earth in mind, this Canadian brand is the first watch company to get the B-Corp certification. They give back as well. While the average watch battery lasts two years, Solios watches are solar powered, saving at least 20 batteries in its lifespan. Right now, you can recycle your old watches through their program and receive a gift certificate towards a Solios watch.

- Au Lit Fine Linen Pure Silk Beauty Sleep Set. I recently upgraded my bedding with luxury sets from this family-owned Toronto store.
