Guys, I felt like a total Grinch this week when I was out and about Christmas shopping. Keep in mind, I was PMS’ing and felt like I couldn’t make simple decisions, so I wasn’t very successful. For some reason, I felt totally overwhelmed by the sheer volume of STUFF that exists nowadays. Something I’ve noticed about my personality is when there are too many available choices, I panic. Hahaha. I prefer to go in with a plan of what I’m buying and get the hell out of there ASAP. Hopefully my gift guide can help you avoid mall-anxiety, too!
For the coffee + tea lover + adaptogen latte lover (ha!): Swell Traveller bottle.
I’m obsesssssssssed with this Calacatta gold marble print. You could pair it with some matcha, turmeric, Kauai coffee beans, or a gift card for their fav local coffee shop.
Saje’s Pocket Farmacy or a couple roll-on oils. I love how essential oils have become the new coconut oil and it seems like there’s a medicinal blend for almost anything. I use their ‘Sleep Well’ oil every night and I swear it’s like taking a chill pill. It contains valerian root which is kinda like nature’s valium! When I’m PMS’ing (like I am right now) I roll Moon Cycle onto my lower abdomen and back. Peppermint Halo is great for headaches and muscle tension.
A class pass for a fitness or yoga studio you know they’ve been dying to try (or love!) I’d adore all the Rumble Boxing passes, please. 🙂 For someone who is transitioning into a more healthful way of living, Orangetheory is currently running two holiday promos that are perfect for fitness newbies: 4 class pack + chest heart rate monitor for $99 or 4 class pack + wrist monitor for $149.
Herbologie functional herbs + botanical blends. I’ve been using their Athlete’s Kit (currently 50% off!) to assist with recovery and relaxation. Almost every night before bed, I make myself a turmeric ‘latte’ or golden milk. This particular kit contains matcha, bee pollen, ashwagandha, cordyceps, Siberian ginseng and turmeric. They come with recipe cards, too!
You can’t go wrong with gifting a beautiful journal or two and nice inky/flowy pens. Add some sage and quartz crystals to the mix for full and new moon journalling sessions!
A succulent + cute ceramic pot. So millennial, I know.
A six pack of assorted kombucha + a few bars of good quality dark chocolate is the key to almost any girl’s heart. Or a home-brew kit for those who have been talking about making their own ‘buch!
