The holidays are coming and I’ve got you covered. Check out my gift ideas for the healers, givers, change-makers, visionaries, yogis and magic people in your life.

Melissa Forde (me!), Owner of Altar Ego + Forde On Fire
Altar Ego is my product line featuring beautifully designed and sustainably made spiritual goods intended to add personality to your sacred space. The inspiration for Altar Ego came to me during a season of tremendous loss and healing.
