We're sure you'll find several of our favorites will make their way onto your shopping list.

We have personally enjoyed her cooking many times and we can assure you that if you love Asian food, you will love this cookbook.
This French cookbook is beautiful! You won't be able to put it down, there are over 600 pages of beautiful pictures, recipes, and wisdom from our dear friend and francophile Tania Teschke.
Another beautiful cookbook that dives into the experience of simple, yet wonderful elements of salt, fat, acid, and heat.
This book is near and dear to our hearts as it's Joel Salatin's wake up call to the Christian community to be stewards of God's creation in how we eat and how we farm and how we take care of the land.
This lovely book features practical teaching from scripture with DIY projects and resources for the Christian homemaker.
We read this series together as a family many years ago and it has left sweet memories in our hearts. It is the remarkable, true story of Ralph Moody and his family as they grew up in the early 1900's, as farmers and ranchers facing life's adventures, both sweet and sad. Note: you will need tissues.
This one is for the dreamer, the artist, the creative, and the flower gardener - it's such a beautiful book!
This is a beautiful book for the Christian who is seeking to know who Jesus is and understand His heart more deeply.

Other Toups & Co favorites include the Cream Cheek Tint, the Organic Lip Gloss, the Organic Body Oil, and the Liquid Foundation!
We're very picky about scents and smells as anything synthetic tends to give us headaches and make us nauseous. So when we find a perfume that is natural and smells amazing, it becomes an everlasting staple in our wardrobe. Alitura's Presence is a beautiful mix of ylang ylang, sandalwood, cedar, and cardamom - it smells divine! The 15ml travel size makes a great stocking stuffer.
