I have to tell you, this healthy gift guide for the holidays is one of the most fun posts I've done for you. For the past few weeks I've been thinking about what some of my favorite things are that I love and use all the time that would make great gifts... and then also, what are the things that I want.
Most of what I've come up with falls into two categories: food and self care (a.k.a. food and things that are soft). So if you or the ones you're shopping for like food and soft things too then I've got you covered.
I hope this list gives you a little healthy gift giving inspiration... or at least some ideas for yourself. 😉
After you check out the healthy gift guide, I put together a favorite things page with more of my fav products (everything from olive oil to laundry detergent). These are the things I use myself and find myself recommending over and over again. You can find the full list here.

- Electric salt and pepper mills - love these more than I could have imagined
- Naturally Nourished by Sarah Britton - for your friend who really likes vegetables

Self Care Gifts
- CozyChic Lite Calypso Wrap Cardigan by Barefoot Dreams - I got this last year and am still in love
- CozyChic Ultra Lite Lounge Pullover & CozyChic Ultra Lite Pants by Barefoot Dreams - same with these
- The RESET - The gift of health, energy, vitality. And the perfect one for you, one for me kind of gift. Gift it to yourself and your girlfriend who already has everything so you can reset together.
- Rose quartz crystal facial roller - I just got one of these and while I can't report on the skin health/look benefits (yet, at least) I can tell you it feels amazing and is such a sweet little self care ritual at the end of the day (tip: keep in the freezer for an extra cooling effect.
- Primally Pure Starter Kit - This is the kit I got when I first tried Primally Pure and I became obsessed with their lip gloss, everything spray and body butter. For Cyber Monday all kits are buy one, get one. My other fav is their blue tansy beauty cream - it's ah-mazing.
- Shhhower cap - don't have but want
- Essential oil diffuser - The best way to change the scent and mood of a space... (so much healthier than burning candles too!)
- w3llpeople lip gloss - my favorite lipgloss
- w3llpeople brightener - gives your skin that healthy glow
- Outdoor Voices leggings - my fav yoga pants
- The Day Designer daily planner - I got this a few months ago and it's made me so much more on top of everything. I forgot how much I love having a physical planner!
- Matcha tea set and matcha green tea powder - this would make a great gift for a friend who's a big green tea drinker
- Dinner in 10 - my online cooking class/meal prep course that teaches you my system for making dinner in 10 minutes every. single. night. It's the gift that keeps on giving. If buying as a gift for someone else, just include a note with your order or email me and I'll send you a gift certificate.
More Gifts + Things
I just set up a new page with a few (OK, a lot) of my favorite things. It includes everything from the kind of coconut milk I buy to the new shampoo and conditioner I'm obsessed with (seriously, I had almost given up on finding hair products that are "clean" and still work until I found this). Go check it out.
