If the holidays hit you as quickly as they did me, you might need to tend to some last minute shopping. Whole Foods can truly be your one-stop shop with a wonderful selection of finely crafted products from eco-conscious companies. The location near my home (South Loop, Chicago) stocks all of the items listed, but this may vary depending on your market.

* Bottleneck Scarf from Cagoule Fleece - Made in Oregon, these scarfs are super soft & warm, launder easily and are made from post-consumer recycled materials. A variety of pretty colors are available (being the orange-lover I am, I have one in "Chili").

* Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel - JB's entire line of products are certified organic and soothing to sensitive skin. The ultra-fresh scent is unlike any product I've experienced.

* Badger Sore Muscle Rub - USDA Certified Organic balm is ideal for relaxing the neck and shoulders after logging hours at a desk-job.

* Paddywax Eco Candles - This Atlanta-based company hand-pours with natural ingredients. The eco-collection features earth-friendly packaging, including a bio-degradable box. I'm fond of the Sandalwood & Clover fragrance.

* Dr Hauschka Rosemary Body Oil - "Helps warm and relax during cold weather" - perfect for winter relief.

* Bob's Red Mill Flours - Can be used to replace or partner with regular flour for added flavor and nutrition. Combine the Hazelnut Flour (with attached recipe for Hazelnut Cream Scones) with a Lemon Marmalade or Curd for a lovely gift for the baker in your life.

* Organic bubble bath in unique aromatherapy combinations (like Rose Geranium & Citrus) from family owned and operated EO.

* Exotic Caramel Collection from Chicago-based Vosges Haut Chocolat.

* Le Creuset Cookware - Created in 1925, this French company continues to "use the hand-crafted techniques and the original process of forging and casting in the manufacturing of its cookware". The bright colors are a happy edition to any kitchen.

* Epicurean "Pizza Peels" - The entire line of cutting boards are sleek, sustainably produced and made in the USA.

Jingle, jingle!
