Use this list of healthy holiday gifts to give something useful and thoughtful to the health and wellness lovers in your life. Or for yourself, that works too.
While I’m not big on extravagant gifts or spending a lot of money at Christmas, I do enjoy giving small gifts to friends and family. If you’re looking for a healthy gift that both useful and thoughtful for those healthy living lovers in your life, any of the choices on this list would be very much appreciated I’m sure!
If I found a container of coconut butter, a jar of coconut oil and packages of shredded and flaked coconut under my tree, I would be pumped! I don't buy usually buy coconut butter because it has quite the price tag and it's so easy to make at home but I would never turn down a jar of store-bought butter if someone was to gift one to me!
Coconut oil is always good to have for cooking and personal care and you can't go wrong with a couple packages of organic shredded coconut and coconut flakes. I don't think I could be any happier than waking up to the 20 packets of raw coconut butter on Christmas morning.
Health and wellness lover love keeping track of their to-do lists, plans, appointments and goals. A beautiful place to schedule their healthy lifestyle and goals for the upcoming year would make a great gift.
The 5 Minute Journal is a simple way to practice daily gratitude and self-development. Anyone into wellness, healthy living and self-development would love to receive the The 5 Minutes Journal as a gift.
To create a little matcha kit for your health and wellness lovers, pick up some matcha and a matcha whisk to create a little match kits for one of your favourite people. If you're lucky maybe they'll make you homemade matcha lattes on Christmas morning. A beautiful tea mug would also made a great addition to this!
If someone on your list is getting a Vitamix they must be really special to you. This is going to be my gift to myself this year because my Ninja blender broke and it's just time! I can't wait! Nut butters, soups, hummus, smoothies and so much more. A Vitamix makes an amazing gift your whole family will love and enjoy together.
Staying hydrated is important and I know you all have that friend that constantly carries around a water bottle. Haha, that's me actually. I'm in need of a new one and I've got my eyes on one of these beauties!
I love the range of spices from Simply Organic and I'm slowly adding their line to my collection. I would love getting a package of my favourites such as turmeric, curry powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, thyme and cumin. They actually have a starter kit that I've definitely got my eyes on!
I love Pukka teas and whether you pick up one box as a stocking stuffer or the amazing variety pack as a gift, any tea lover will love it. Some of my favourites are After Dinner, Womankind, Turmeric Gold and Peppermint Liquorice.
Superfoods can really add up and it's always nice to be gifted the things you might not always buy for yourself. How awesome would a little package of spirulina, chlorella, cacao nibs, chia seeds, hemp seeds, moringa and maca be? Ahem...if anyone wants to send me something.
Plant-based protein powders aren't cheap but you know how much the fitness lovers in your life love their superfood protein shakes! I would be stoked to find a couple tubs of vegan protein powder wrapped up for me.
My everyday go-to coffee aka complete obsession. I love them, I love the coffee and anyone interested in the health and wellness world probably has Four Sigmatic on their wish list. You can purchase ground coffee or their instant coffee in Cordyceps and Chaga or Lion's Mane and Cordyceps. I like to alternate between the two varieties and I love the Hot Cacao Mix too for evenings or days went i want to go caffeine-free.
