Teepee Burner with Pinion Natural Incense, $10.99
Who doesn’t love a little folk art? Light a small brick of incense and let its smoke rise through the top of the hand-painted teepee and fill a room with the soothing scent of Pinon, a tree that grows across the Southwest and is especially associated with New Mexico. The incense is made of compressed pine needles and produces a natural and earthy aroma unlike any chemical spray.
Zen Bunni Coffee of the Cosmos, $15
Coffee drinkers will love the aroma and taste of these whole beans, which come from a fair-trade, organic farm in Peru run by a local family. Infused with dark chocolate, caramel and citrus flavors, the medium roast blend retains more antioxidants, nutrients and caffeine than darker roasts.

This adorable little pouch is handmade for every order so your gift will be unique and original. Adorned with rainbow beads, it’s meant to hold a small crystal.

Slow Down Studio Laura Berger Molina Knit Blanket, $210
Keep someone cozy for the remainder of winter with an artist-designed blanket. Made from a recycled cotton-poly blend and knitted for a heavier and softer feel, your loved one will want to wrap up in this blanket as soon as it’s unwrapped. Take it outside on a cool night – and toss it in the washer as needed.
