Sheryl Ott Christmas Tree Dare To Detour

Running a tad behind on the holiday shopping this year? You and me both! I know you believe in empowering women, redefining beauty and embracing authenticity in all aspects of your life - that’s why you’re here! How awesome would it be to pass on those same values when it comes to gift-giving? With this in mind, I’ve compiled a list of independent, woman-owned businesses who think outside the box, create quality products with passion, and who care deeply about the world. Consider supporting these amazing businesses with those last-minute gifts this year, or forward this list as hint to someone who is wondering what to get you!

Owned by our Dare Clean Beauty Expert, Nicole Giannini, Siren Salon and Apothecary is a one-stop shop for clean beauty and, if you live in the Bay Area - a killer cut and color.

Crooked Water

CEO Heather Manley founded Crooked Water in 2013 based on an infatuation with spirits and a love for growing brands that radiate life, values, quality and passion. Her love of small-batch, craft spirits is infectious and the award-winning taste that results is really astounding. Buy their small-batch Bourbon (my obvious choice), Vodka, Gin and more online to support a woman-owned distillery this holiday season!
