My winter giveaway is one of my favorite annual traditions. I’m excited to introduce these cozy favorites from some wonderful brands. One Beyond the Fried reader will win all four products!

Tiny leather zip pouch from FASHIONABLE: Handcrafted in Ethiopia, this small zip pouch is a lovely way to keep track of lip gloss or change in your favorite tote. FASHIONABLE seeks to alleviate generational poverty through job training and job creation around the world.

Bold bracelet from Noonday Collection: This fun, chunky bracelet is made from sustainable materials in Ecuador. Noonday Collection is committed to supporting artisan businesses through fashion and fair trade.

Rosemary Mint herbal lip salve from Little Seed Farm: I just discovered this charming brand, located on a solar-powered farm outside of Nashville. Made from shea butter and essential oils, this lip salve sounds perfect for chapped lips on cold days. Little Seed Farm focuses on creating sustainable, safe skincare in a humane environment.

Jolly Bells Garland from Ten Thousand Villages: I love having this handcrafted garland add festive cheer to my mantle, and I’m so excited to partner with Ten Thousand Villages to give away one to a reader!
