2. Something Cozy for Loooooong Winter Ahead
Dudley Stephens fleece turtlenecks are the best protection we’ve found from the chilly New England months. They feel like wearing a sweatshirt, but the style of both the Park Slope turtleneck (pictured) and longer Cobble Hill turtleneck, look more put together than your average hoodie. Crafted sustainably in Brooklyn from soft Terry fleece, spun from recycled yarn.

4. A Symbol of Strength
Giving Keys (like the Dainty Key Necklace pictured) are keys stamped with inspirational messages. The idea behind the keys are that you should wear one with a message you need at this moment (or gift one with a sentiment for someone else) and then when you think another person may need that message more than you, pass the key on. All of The Giving Keys products are assembled, packaged and shipped from Downtown L.A. by people transitioning out of homelessness.

7. A Much-Needed Pep Talk
How To Raise Perfectly Imperfect Kids And Be Ok With IT by Lisa Sugarman, with Debra Gansenberg, MSW, LICSW, offers real tips and strategies for parents of Gen Z kids. Parenting expert and syndicated columnist Lisa Sugarman takes her humanistic approach to parenting Gen Z kids and tells it like it is. With help from Gansenberg, a long-time family systems therapist, this book reminds parents that it’s okay (and important) for kids to hit obstacles, it’s okay if your kids aren’t perfect, and it’s okay to say “NO.” Because the goal isn’t to raise perfect kid; the goal is to raise kind, responsible adults. And it’s a process.

Learn more about the authors: Lisa Sugarman & Debra Fox Gansenberg or buy the book on Amazon.
