To chill out and relax:
I love bringing this mini diffuser with me when I leave town so I can diffuse calming essential oil wherever I go.
Check out last year’s Christmas gift blog for my favorite full-size diffuser that won’t break the bank.
A fun read about the power of the breath.
Journalist James Nestor traveled the world to discover the hidden science behind ancient breathing practices and how our breathing can affect athletic performance, asthma, our spine, and more.
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:
These bars are are a favorite of mine, and a favorite amongst my family, friends, followers and clients.
Thunderbird bars contain the perfect blend of low-glycemic carbs from dried fruit and healthy fats plus protein from nuts and seeds.
It’s super hard to pick a favorite, but I’m partial to all the flavors that include espresso or chocolate.

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.

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.
For the caffeinated:
Such a fun coffee product! Good Pharma makes a pourover coffee you can brew anywhere – all you need is hot water.
Their organic coffee also contains a blend of Lion’s Mane mushrooms, L-theanine and Rhodiola which can give you a more balanced energy without a crash and help minimize coffee’s stress on the adrenals (more info on that here)

This organic cold brew comes in multiple delicious flavors including hazelnut, my personal favorite. I love how cost-effective this cold brew it – way cheaper than getting cold brew from a coffee shop on the reg.

I don’t own this just yet, but I will definitely be asking for it for Christmas or gifting it to myself this Holiday season.
This bottle allows you to make cold brewed tea overnight, or it can be used to infuse water with fresh fruit or cucumber slices to make water way more fun.
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.
This toner is Primally Pure’s number one product, and I can see why.The name says it all – this toner does just about everything, and everyone’s skin would benefit. The toner balances your skin’s pH, reduces inflammation, calms irritation, and gives your skin a dewy glow.
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.
Make sure to check out last year’s blog for my other favorites from this awesome, non-toxic brand.

Shea butter, aloe, cranberry extract, and other plant-based ingredients nourish the delicate skin around your eyes and can even reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

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

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.
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.
