Give a Garden! Little packages of seeds make fun stocking stuffers. One year-I gave my family a gift that kept giving the entire year, an organic garden box. There are companies that build a fairly small above ground garden box with organic soil to fit almost any backyard or even balcony! It becomes an education for the whole family in botany and seasonal veggies. Find a local company who can build one for you or even build one yourself! There’s nothing better than harvesting your own fresh herbs and vegetables for your meals. Check out, or fro great ideas!

Mom of 2 boys McKenzie (Mack) founded Real Mom Daily because of her own need to connect with like minded women and companies. Environmental sustainability and social justice run through the veins of everything in Mack's life. She just spent a year in Bali, Indonesia where her kids attended the Green School. They lived in a simple house in the middle of the rice paddies in Ubud. Now back in Los Angeles, simplicity is quickly forgotten. Prior to REAL MOM DAILY, Mack co-founded and created Camp Chat and the XMA (Extreme Martial Arts) Life skills and Leadership Program which is licensed by over 2,000 martial arts schools around the world. Mack also did a stint as a lead character on the soap opera As The World Turns. Jett Lee taught her how to fire a gun (though she'd NEVER keep one in her home), she's had a few too many vodkas with Jackie Chan, she's written 2 screen plays, made a short film, fully renovated 6 houses, started 4 companies, and as a kid detasseled corn in Illinois (yes, she can drive a tractor) and like many entrepreneurs, she once had a paper route. With Real Mom Daily Mack interfaces with influencers, companies and politicians on city, state and national levels to advocate for issues that stand for social good. Mack's Quaker upbringing gives her an appreciation for all things simple. She cooks dinner and has a nightly moment of silence before her family eats at a table often graced by friends and family. When she looks at her glass she sees it half full but... she's a skipping contradiction. View all posts by McKenzie Satterthwaite
