Giving Gifts That Benefit The Planet – prAna



This season I’m focusing on finding gifts for my lovely family that will encourage growth, happiness and peace.  That could be as literal as giving a beautiful Amaryllis or interpreted metaphorically as sharing a product that is good for our environment.  I was recently introduced to a clothing line that checks all the boxes, and you too can give gifts that benefit the planet when you chose from – prAna.


More than ever, people just like you and me are seeking ways to spread positivity in our country. One way to do that is to make sure every purchase you make and every gift you give has a positive impact on our planet.  I’ve discovered a great line of clothes that fit the bill –  prAna. The cool clothing line prAna offers organic, hemp, sustainable, and fair trade items so that consumers feel great about the things they wear and the items they give.

I decided to take my new Mariette Dress out on my recent Small Business Saturday shopping trip last weekend.



I’m going through that “delightful” time in my life where I could break out in a sweat in the freezing cold. Argh. I was very curious how I would handle this material and, I’m very happy to report, that I felt very comfortable in this sweater dress.  Fabric consists of Organic cotton blend sweater knit, 70% Organic Cotton / 30% Acrylic.

Please check out their website – –  and see their cool designs.  When you find something to add to your cart do yourself a favor and save 15% off your entire order.  Use this Promo Code:  BLOGF16ANHA

When you get your new clothes share a pic!  I’d love to see what you chose!

The moon belongs to everyone, the best things in life are free“, sang Frank Sinatra (among many others) and that’s fantastic!  However, it’s very hard to wrap and very difficult to fit under a Christmas tree.  And so it goes, the search for the perfect gift. If your gift-giving list is long, I’ve discovered a great way to save on everything from toys, clothing, appliances – you name it!  It’s Groupon Coupons. Do you know about this? I didn’t! I’m so happy to learn about it, particularly for this time of year. Let’s check it out!

Groupon Coupons can help ease your Thanksgiving journeys by offering great discounts on hotels and travel.  Also, there are coupons for holiday decorating and food options.  A sure-to-please gift is a lovely bouquet (you don’t have to worry if it “fits”). From You Flowers has great deals right now. This would also be a very nice gift to give to yourself!

Something that most of us don’t think of, until something falls apart, is home maintenance. This can be tricky for those that either aren’t handy with tools, don’t have access to tools or aren’t physically able to handle the heavy lifting.  Angie’s List now offers FREE membership through Groupon Coupons. You can give the gift of a “Handy Man” this season.  That’s a pretty great gift!  Click here for your deal.

No Need To Pay Full Price When You Use Groupon

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.



There’s no reason to pay full-price for your personal care and upkeep when you use Health, Beauty & Wellness Groupons!  As a matter of fact, I found my current hairstylist through Groupon and… due to my loyalty, he has kept my rate the same.  (It helped that I’ve sent a few friends his way toowink.)

Just about every personal care service is listed at Groupon.  You can find health care providers that will help keep you well on the inside, along with professionals providing services to help you put your best face, and body, in the spotlight.

Groupon is also a great place to find gifts for those special in your life.  (We are encroaching on a major “gift giving” season therefore I recommend you search for deals so that you can spread the joy – and your money – farther.)  And once you purchase a Groupon don’t forget about it!  Most have an expiration date so how about getting a folder (I bet you can find a deal for one at Groupon) and keep your printed coupons well organized.folder

If you’ve never visited the Groupon site, don’t be afraid, it’s easy to navigate. All you do is enter your city/state and look for deals in your area.  They also provide great prices on items you can purchase on-line.  It’s a win-win!  Enjoy your shopping and be proud of yourself for saving some money with the help of Groupon.
