Solace is a gift company formed by sisters-in-law Megan Beck and Naomi Beck to provide an expression of care for those experiencing hardship. The exquisite gift collections are designed to connect with the heart of the pain and provide practical, mental, emotional and physical help to get through the storm.
Megan and Naomi related over common experiences of pain – instances of trauma and the journey towards recovery; loss of loves ones, relationships, jobs, and physical health – and their ache for others going through hardships. Their frustration with not finding adequate expressions of care fueled their desire to formulate their own solution based on research, elegant design and heartfelt empathy.
The journey of creating Solace included partnerships with like-minded artisans and experts – tea blenders in New York State, and aromatherapy dough maker in Missouri, essential oil and soy blending candlemakers in West Virginia, wildflower seed paper makers in Washington, and innovative body products chemists and designers in California – who captured the vision of care and customized products to fit the unique Solace aesthetic and intention. It is a continued journey of learning and listening to develop and perfect whatever expression of care someone may need.
Solace’s mission is to inspire more empathy, kindness, and compassion in a world with so much pain where giving is a healing force that goes both ways.
Gifting an Expression of Care When You Can’t Be Together
Solace gifts are perfect for anyone going through hard times or grief, and they are especially poignant this year as so many loved ones can’t be together for the holidays.
“Solace gifts are designed to bring light into a dark time,” says Megan Beck. “The holidays can be very difficult for a lot of people, even though there’s also a lot of joy surrounding them. Not everybody has family around, especially this year. This is a way to really be there for each other when we can’t be present in person.”
Help a loved one feel loved and supported with gifts like:
“We’re a company of empathy,” says Naomi Beck. “As people are looking around while holiday shopping, it can sometimes feel like, ‘Oh, everything is so holly jolly, and no one really understands what I’m going through right now.’ We’re the company out there that resonates with what you’re feeling when things are more difficult.”
