Her Favorite Things: "I really believe in conscious consumerism—doing good through our purchases," says Bush Lauren, cofounder and CEO of FEED Projects, a charity that fights hunger and malnutrition around the world. Her latest FEED collection is the most fashion-forward yet, including a hand-beaded cross-body bag, a colorful scarf made of fabric from Africa, and bright, tasseled cord bracelets.
Her Merrymaking Style: "I'm pretty casual—I love chunky sweaters and cozy clothes for the holidays. Things you can relax, eat a lot, and feel good in."
Her Gift List:
For the child at heart: A tree swing for one
For the nature lover: Terrariums featuring tiny people figurines
For the wine aficionado: Chardonnays and Merlots from a company that donates part of its profits to charity
