Pansy Co underwear: $40-52 in sizes xxs-xxxl
Not only can we feel good about supporting a brand like Pansy Co but imagine opening a gift with any of these comfies in it and not wearing them at least twice a week? It’s foolproof.
*Jil (Chunks Wholesale Manager) & Lupe (Chunks Shipping Specialist) love Pansy Co bc not only are they fully compostable, but they're soft & cozy to the point that you forget you're even wearing anything -- and that's saying something bc Lupe only wears a bra when she has to, hehe.
Piera Bochner candles: $62-150
As if these candles don’t speak for themselves, I’ll tell you more. These beauties are hand poured by Brooklyn based artist and designer, Piera Bochner.

I’ll warn you now that these sell out quickly, so make sure to place your order early so Piera can get you your candle in time to be wrapped.
Fredricks & Mae cutting board: $32-95
The cutting board; an essential household item. We all have one, we all need one. BUT let’s be honest, most of ours are pretty gross by now. Fredricks & Mae have made upgrading our old cutting boards a little more exciting with these funky chopping blocks made using professional grade plastic scraps leftover from making solid colored cutting boards.
*Tasha (Chunks Social Media Manager) gifted one of these quirky boards to her mom. She can attest it was a great gift idea bc not only did her mom love it, but she instantly wanted to test it out which meant a meal for Tasha. :)

Verloop knit slippers: $40-58
As a society, we’re becoming increasingly aware of the fashion industry and the insane amount of textile waste that comes with it. Verloop aims to do things differently. Rather than sending their scraps to the landfill, they save every piece to be repurposed into new & unique pieces that will keep you and your loved ones v cozy.

Wooj products are made in Brooklyn, partially by hand and partially by robots. They're also made using heat-resistant corn-based plastic along with other ecologically responsible material and finishes.
These wavy lamps make a great addition to any room in any home. Personally adding this one to my list hehe.
SIN home objects: $35-130
Virginia Sin and her small team make beautiful clay objects with their two bare hands in Brooklyn, NY. If you want to go the practical route this year, think ceramic toothbrush holder, fruit bowl OR maybe a bookend made with lots of love. Virginia strives to bring warmth to every home she touches. And I can guarantee these will be put to use.
*Tiffany (Chunks Owner) loves elevating simple things we use everyday but easily overlook -- her SIN toothbrush holder is a prime example of just that.
