BIDE Market is a fully sustainable, plastic-free, vegan and cruelty-free shopping experience that pops up for the holidays on Dec. 15, 2019. Curated by Parisa Morris of Town & Anchor (an all-natural, vegan, zero-waste skincare company based in Chicago), the upscale artisan market offers creative gifts for the family, accessories, beauty products, kids stuff, home items, clothing and jewelry from vendors such as Ember and Flow Handmade employing pebbles from Lake Erie and 100% recycled sterling silver. Get tickets on the website for $10 (early bird pricing available until Dec. 1) and 20% of all ticket proceeds go to NRDC: Natural Resources Defense Council, so you can tell Mom you are gifting consciously. Ticket admission includes complimentary guided sound meditation, restorative yoga, as well as an open bar.

- Best for Christmas Shopping Because: You needn't be a persistent label-checker at BIDE Market since everything is fully sustainable, vegan, cruelty-free and eco-friendly.
