Snooz Sound Machine

healthy christmas gift ideas snooz white noise machine

I got a Snooz sound machine for Christmas last year and it has been a game-changer for my sleep.

It sounds like a big box fan, but takes up a tiny fraction of the space. I use it at home every night, and I also bring it with me on trips so I can drown out nearby noise. It contains a full-spectrum white noise sound to help you fall asleep and stay asleep, and you can adjust the tone and volume.

For the foodie:

Thunderbird Bars

It’s super hard to pick a favorite, but I’m partial to all the flavors that include espresso or chocolate.

mayawell prebiotic soda healthy christmas gift ideas

I’m always learning new things, and this year I learned about a prebiotic fiber called agavin. This prebiotic derived from agave is incredible. Research shows agavin can help support the gut microbiome, regulate appetite, boost weight loss, reduce inflammation, and even protect the brain from oxidative stress.

I typically don’t drink carbonated drinks, but I really enjoyed this sparkling soda. It contains 5 grams of the agavin prebiotic and only 4 grams of sugar. They have fun flavors like Pear Lime Green Tea and Pineapple Mango Turmeric – my favorite has to be Strawberry Ginger Hibiscus.

I bet these would make a delicious mixer for some festive cocktails too.

Truvani Protein Powder

truvani plant based protein powder healthy christmas gift ideas

I tried this plant-based protein powder for the first time a few months ago and I’m a big fan.

Truvani is USDA certified organic, contains a blend of whole food plant-based protein sources, is sweetened with a touch of monk fruit (no weird aftertaste), and it’s gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free.

This protein powder would be perfect in my paleo Wendy’s Frosty recipe.

If you want to go all out you could pair this with a printed copy of my Frosty recipe and/or other fun smoothie recipes, and a Nutribullet blender.

They have lots of different sizes, and plenty of colors to choose from so you can pick the perfect bottle for whoever you’re gifting to.

I spray this toner all over my face before applying my serum/moisturizer, and I sometimes spray during the day as a skin pick-me-up.

Kitchen essentials:

Chef’s Knife

chefs knife healthy christmas gift ideas

Trying to put together a meal with a crappy knife if like trying to paint a masterpiece with Crayons. It’s really difficult, and really frustrating.

My parents gifted me an 8-inch, high-quality chef’s knife a few years ago when I started getting into cooking, and I can’t imagine cooking without it. I use this knife for 90% of my cooking – it’s a gift that keeps on giving.

This knife is pricey (but honestly worth every penny since it lasts a lifetime), so if you want to spend a little less you could get this knife which is by the same brand but at a lower price point.

Berkey Water Filter

berkey water filter healthy christmas gift ideas

Our water is lurking with heavy metals, chemicals, and even medication. My Berkey water filter filters out over 200 contaminants and ensures I’m drinking pure, clean water that supports my health.

I have a “Big Berkey”, but they also have smaller and larger sizes available.

Berkey Stand

berkey wood stand healthy christmas gift ideas

This Berkey stand was such a steal. I scoured the internet for a simple wooden stand and found this gem on Amazon. Big fan.

Milk Frother

milk frother mudwatr whip healthy christmas gift ideas

I use this milk frother almost every single morning – either to blend my matcha or to blend some cinnamon or cacao into my coffee.

I’ve tried alot of different frothers and the mudwatr frother is hands-down my favorite. Plus, it’s USB rechargeable (yay for no disposable batteries!).

Glass Kettle

glass kettle healthy christmas gift ideas

I asked for a glass kettle for Christmas last year, and it didn’t disappoint. It’s perfect for French press coffee, hot matcha lattes, and hot tea.

I did alot of research on different kettles, and glass came out on top. Plastic kettles can leach plastic into your hot water (ALL plastics are hormone disrupting, even BPA-free plastics) and it’s hard to see when stainless steel kettles need to be cleaned.

My glass kettle was super affordable on Amazon, it’s easy to use, and the design it simple and sleek so it looks great in any kitchen. They don’t carry my exact kettle anymore, but this one is super similar to what I own.

For the love of fitness:

Basis Electrolytes

basis electrolyte mix healthy christmas gift ideas

I don’t drink electrolyte drinks like Gatorade or Powerade because they are full of sugar and contain artificial colors (which can fuel food sensitivities and autoimmune conditions).

Most electrolyte powders out there contain a very small amount of electrolytes, and some contain too much sugar. Basis electrolytes contain the perfect ratio of sodium to potassium, and just enough sugar to allow the electolytes to effectively enter the cell.

Since incorporating electrolytes into my everyday life I not only notice better endurance in my workouts, but better energy and focus throughout the day as well (which makes sense because low electrolyte status = low energy)

My favorite flavors are cran raspberry and blackberry lemon, and I sometimes I add an extra squeeze of lemon.

kettlebell healthy christmas gift ideas

A kettlebell makes for a killer workout and there are lots of weights to choose from, so you can use a kettlebell whether you’re a seasoned athlete or an exercise newbie.

They’re virtually indestructible, so it’s a gift that will keep on giving year after year.

Whoop Band

whoop band healthy christmas gift ideas

I don’t own a Whoop, yet!

I did alot of research on “wearables” and the Whoop band impressed me most. Whoop monitors your heart rate variability, sleep, and exercise to help you understand how your diet, exercise, and lifestyle affect your body’s ability to recover from the day. And they have a ton of colors so it’s easy to find something that’s just their style.

I heard they sometimes discount Whoop for Black Friday, so I’m planning on snagging a membership then.

I hope you enjoy these gifts as much as I do. Share with friends, share on social, and let me know what you think of these gifts if you decide to gift yourself something.
