Gifting with... Elizabeth Kott

By Crown Affair

Today we're Gifting with... Elizabeth Kott. Elizabeth is the host of one of our favorite podcasts, @thatssoretrograde, and is true Taurean goddess at heart. Our Founder @diannacohen met Elizabeth on a virtual creative journey using the book The Artist's Way and deeply admired her wit, honesty, and empathy towards others through the process. With the vision to educate a wider audience on wellbeing in a relatable way, we frequently look to her for inspiration or when we need a little joy in our lives. Head over to stories to see what she's mindfully gifting this holiday season...

- UnitedOther Incense Ropes

I discovered these from my acupuncturist and dear friend, Carolyn Barron (@botanarchy). Her office always smelled so woodsy and serene and i needed that in my life- I recommend their sample box which I love to give as is or I break it up and throw one in the envelope of a love note 💌

- Heretic Candles

I think candles as gifts are my love language. Heretic is hands down my favorite synthetic-free fragrance brand and their candles are clean, luxurious and smell incredible. My recommended candle scents are: Smudge, Dirty Fig and Dirty Vanilla. I wear dirty grapefruit as my scent, so people at Heretic if you happen to read this, petition to make this one the next candle? Thanks!

- For Days First Basics Apparel Line

You purchase a piece from them and when you are done with it you send it back and can replace it with a new piece from their line for a discount. They recycle the piece. It's genius. It's the future. And everyone needs to know about it.

- The Brush No. 002

There is something to be said for an amazing hair brush and I feel like oftentimes this isn't something we treat ourselves to, thus this is an ideal option when you are the one doing the treating.🎁

- Sleep Crown

Sleep Crown is an independent business that I absolutely cherish in my own life- just heaven in pillow form. Their standard size  goes over the top of your head (leaving mouth and nose uncovered) for instant relaxation. They also make a travel size and body pillow - I recommend all of the above.
