Most of us have our go-to fashion staples which we wear like a uniform week after week. Accessorizing makes fashion fun! It enables us to mix things up without exuding too much energy on those busy mornings. A statement watch, tassel earrings, rings or glasses can elevate the simplest look. Even a well-chosen handbag can add just the right pop of color and completely transform an outfit.
I’m sure the women and men you are shopping for will appreciate new chic accessories to add to their rotation whether it’s a vegan leather bag, sleek watch with matching cuff, new glasses that give back, colorful arm candy or gold jewelry from the Brazilian Amazon.
For your convenience, I’ve summarized my experience with each brand, included Black Friday Sales details, Coupon Codes and upcoming Conscious & Chic Instagram Giveaways, where applicable.
1. DANIEL WELLINGTON | Use CONSCIOUS15 for 15% off (except Thanksgiving weekend) | Shop now!
If you follow me on social media, you’ve already seen me post about Daniel Wellington. Confession time! I stopped wearing watches years ago because, like a lot of people, I became accustomed to checking the time on my phone. But I was reintroduced to wearing a watch a couple years ago and now I can’t imagine leaving the house without one.
One of my favorite watch brands, although young, is Daniel Wellington. I love how stylish and versatile their products are. They offer a wide variety of options going from classic to modern through sporty. Their timepieces are great in quality and the bands are interchangeable so the sky is the limit.
Daniel Wellington makes sure its suppliers comply with the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UN Convention on the Rights of Children, the ILO Declaration of Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, The Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact and The OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. Daniel Wellington also follows the European REACH regulation to ensure its products do not contain any dangerous chemicals that could be harmful to the environment and human health.
Daniel Wellington carries women and men’s watches. The current collection features over six faces and 20 strap options which are interchangeable. I have the Classic Petite Ashfield 32mm Rose Gold Watch with Rose Gold Cuff to match and it is so chic!
Black Friday Sale: Wednesday, November 22 through Black Friday.
- Free strap when buying a watch.

4. UBUNTU | Use CONSCIOUSNCHIC40 for 40% off | Shop now!
About the brand
Ubuntu is a handmade jewelry line based in Brooklyn. It was created by Joslyn Fecik after a trip to Haiti in 2015. She fell in love with the country and the kids she met at Gertrude’s Orphanage in Port-Au-Prince. The love she felt for them compelled her to want to support them in a tangible way and Ubuntu was born. Ubuntu is a Zulu word and philosophy that says “I am because we are”. Thanks to her jewelry sales, Joslyn currently sponsors children in Haiti and is creating scholarships for kids in NYC.
She uses beautiful gemstones and semi precious stones to hand make all the Ubuntu pieces which include colorful beaded bracelets, earrings and necklaces. I have four pieces from her collection and they are gorgeous. Shop the collection now and see for yourself!

5. GREATER THINGS | Shop now!
“Every purchase for a purpose.” That is Greater Things motto. To put it into action they’ve created a marketplace where all the products sold lead to the betterment of those who make them. The brands featured on their site are ethically produced, artisan made, hand crafted and create opportunities around the world. Greater Things carries women’s and men’s accessories as well as home goods of premium quality and style. Some of the brands available in the online marketplace are WeWOOD Watches, Causegear, FashionABLE handbags and jewelry to only name a few.
I’ve been wearing FashionABLE’s Mamuye Tote in Dusty Rose (pictured) and it is the perfect everyday tote bag. Its size can fit all my essentials without looking oversized. I love the dusty rose color because it is neutral yet stands out from the ordinary. The tote was named Mamuye after a heroic woman and comes in a variety of colors. The Mamuye tote as well as other items from Greater Things would make great gifts for both the men and women on your list.
6. WARBY PARKER | Shop now!
About the brand
I’ve been a fan of Warby Parker ever since it launched years ago. It was founded by Neil Blumenthal and Dave Gilboa out of their own need for affordable prescription glasses. They saw a problem, glasses being too expensive and decided to do something about it. But, they didn’t stop there. Neil Blumenthal who is the Co-founder and Co-CEO of the brand said in an interview with Elaine Weltheroth Teen Vogue’s EIC that if he was going to have a business he wanted it to be a socially responsible enterprise. So him and his business partner decided that for every pair of Warby Parker glasses sold they would donate a pair to someone in need.
Did you know that almost 1 billion people worldwide lack access to prescription glasses, making it impossible for them to properly learn or work. Being able to see is a basic need that no one should be deprived of. Warby Parker‘s one-for-one model enables shoppers to give back at no cost to them which is great. Although I don’t need prescription glasses, I own two pairs of Warby Parker glasses and one pair of sunglasses. I wear them all the time because I like the way glasses look on me. I don’t need them but I buy them anyway because of their quality and uber stylish designs. And knowing that my purchases have made three lives better is priceless!
