Healthy Holiday Gift Guide 
Gift-giving season is in full force, and what better gift is there than the gift of health so you and your loved ones can live your best life? Especially after the unique year we’ve all had.
I know what you’re probably thinking… Healthy gifts aren’t sexy or exciting like getting a new iPhone, piece of jewelry or gadget.
And while this might be true, health-supporting gifts are the ones that will keep giving long after the holidays are gone. 2020 has taken a toll on everyone’s health across the globe and shown us that we need to take better care of ourselves.
No one wants to ask for healthy things for the holidays because it’s too taboo, but it’s what we all really want in the long run, and need.
A new iPhone or gadget eventually becomes outdated. A piece of jewelry eventually loses its appeal. Clothes get old and go out of style.
But your health is something you’ll have for the rest of your life, and in order to make the most out of the rest of your life, you need your health.
In this week’s video and blog, I share with you my favorite health-supporting tools to help you give yourself and your loved ones the gift of health this holiday season, and beyond!
Whether you’re shopping for yourself (like I do this time of year LOL) or someone else, these health-supporting tools are perfect and I’ll tell you why…
doTerra Essential Oils
Essential oils can be used for a WIDE variety of health-related reasons. In our house, we regularly use:
- Lavender daily before bed for restful sleep
- Peppermint, lavender and lemon as a combo for seasonal allergy support or as standalone to get rid of headaches, for cooking and to boost energy
- OnGuard as a non-toxic cleaning solution, to get rid of workout clothes stank and to fight off the common cold or virus
The best thing about essential oils is that a little bit goes a long way, giving this gift greater value than what you might expect at first glance.
Queen of Thrones Castor Oil Pack
Castor oil packs were a critical part of healing my Hashimotos, mold illness and weight loss journey for years now, and I continue to use one regularly to maintain the results I’ve seen. Castor oil packs may not sound sexy but they are life-changing! This is the perfect gift for you or loved ones who struggle with bloating, constipation, hormone imbalance and pain.
I use my castor oil pack at least 3 times a week to reduce inflammation, support proper digestion, balance hormones, reduce stress levels and boost detoxification. Whatever your health goals are, or healthy actions you are taking, castor oil packs can help you 10 X the results!
Talk about a great incentive to drink more water and an awesome hydrating cocktail mixer all in one. LMNT electrolytes are part of my daily routine and an essential element to my prolonged 72-hour fasts to ensure my body is always hydrated so it can function optimally and I can feel great. Plus, their fun, natural flavors can be mixed with club soda to make a magnificent mocktail or margarita with a splash of tequila. The majority of people are walking around dehydrated without even knowing it.
These are the perfect stocking stuffers to boost hydration and promote more energy, weight loss, hormone balance and more!
Plus right now you can get a FREE 8-sample pack + shipping through December 31st!
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve received tea as a gift, and not to sound unappreciative but my only wish is that it would have been tea that was actually good for me. Pique tea is 100% organic and triple screened for pesticides, heavy metals and molds to make sure it’s of the highest quality (if you didn’t know, tea can be highly contaminated with toxins!). Aside from being super high quality, Pique tea is also jam packed with antioxidants and phytonutrients to boost energy, balance blood sugar and heal your gut.
One of the best features of this tea brand is that the tea comes in powder form so there’s no messy tea bag or steeper, they can be mixed in cold or hot water, and they are easy to travel with.
Shrub Farm Mocktail Mix
This is one of my all-time favorite healthy treats and alcoholic drink alternatives. Shrub Farm mixes use raw apple cider vinegar made from 100% organic apples and flavors straight from the island of Maui such as ginger, pineapple and hibiscus. If you or your health-conscious loved ones are looking to reduce or abstain from alcohol, these mocktail mixes are a must have!
Plus you can get 15% off your purchase with discount code FEEL15 through December 6th!
Vital Proteins Gut Healing Goodness
Vital Proteins makes a wide variety of collagen products to help heal your gut or keep it happy. Not only does collagen support gut health, but it also promotes younger looking skin, and strong, thick nails and hair. Some of my favorite and staple Vital Proteins products include their plain flavored collagen peptides, matcha collagen and collagen coffee creamers. Why does this make the perfect gift? Because who doesn’t want younger looking skin, better digestive health and luscious locks of hair!
BeautyCounter Skin & Body Products
Every year I get some kind of beauty, skin or body care product from someone; a bar of soap, lotion, eye makeup or even perfume. And just like tea, I wish the products were good for me but most of the time they aren’t; so they go right into the trash after the holidays. But with BeautyCounter products you can’t go wrong.
This product line is a foundation in our household. All of my skincare and makeup products are from BeautyCounter, and my husband even uses their men’s line. Aside from being a cleaner, safer skin and body-care line, BeautyCounter is also a B-Corporation, meaning they support nonprofits that align with their mission, and invest in a cleaner future by partnering with leading scientists in the search for safer ingredients that will make up the better products for tomorrow.
You can grab individual items or full skincare sets for great gifts!
SaunaSpace Infrared Sauna
This is the ultimate gift! Think deep relaxation and an in-home spa experience for you and/or your loved ones. We bought a sauna a few years ago. Between my husband and I, it gets used every day if not twice a day. An infrared sauna is like having a personal spa escape in your home, where you can checkout and boost your health at the same time. And unlike most infrared saunas, SaunaSpace ones also protect you from harmful EMF’s while you restore and relax.
If an infrared sauna isn’t in your budget, check out their photon lights and their special health effects!
That wraps it up for my healthy holiday gift guide for 2020 so you can have a healthier 2021.
And remember when you question whether you should buy these things for yourself or someone else…
…your health is something you’ll have for the rest of your life, and in order to make the most out of the rest of your life you need your health.
Happy Holidays, and make sure to follow me on Instagram and/or Facebook for my 12 Days of Healthy Hormone Hacks series starting December 12th so you can feel great after the holidays instead of fat, tired and sick 😉
