Happy Wellness Wednesday, friends! I hope you have had a great week and are ready to relax and eat your favorite Thanksgiving Day foods tomorrow! I love this time of year! It’s so fun to buy gifts for others that might make them know how special they are to you. What better gift than one that helps improve their health and well-being, right? Wellness gifts are my favorite gifts to give. Today, I’m sharing a bunch of my favorite wellness products with you that would make a great present for someone you care about.
Everyone likes to start the new year off on the right foot with their health! Activewear is a great gift to give to help encourage people to get moving. I found some really cute things at Nordstrom and on Amazon for you! I love these brands, use, and trust them a lot. I’m obsessed with 90 Degrees by Reflex products because they are just as high quality as the more expensive brands, but they always have great prices! Here are some of my favorite pieces of theirs and some other amazing brands, too!
There are lots of great tools that can help people stay on track with their health goals! These are ones that I use all of the time.
Ninja Blender: I love this blender. It is really high quality and will last for ages. Plus, it blends your ingredients until they’re really smooth! No one likes a chunky smoothie, haha!
Air Fryer: No need to deep fry your foods when you can simply air fry them! I like to make brussel sprouts, french fries, and coconut crusted chicken in mine. There’s lots of ways to use this and make your favorite fried foods in a healthier way!
The InstantPot: This is a necessity in my house! It cooks your foods faster than a crockpot and in minutes you can have a fully cooked stew, sweet potato, chicken, you name it! It’s a great gift for anyone starting a new diet, who cooks a lot, is really busy, or wants to just improve their health.
The Ionic Foot Detox Bath: This is something I utilize all of the time. It’s fabulous for detoxing out mold, fungus, heavy metals, chemicals, and other unwanted toxins. I got this for my home when I began healing from Lyme Disease. If anyone in your family has a chronic illness or cancer, this would be an excellent gift to give to them. Toxins are a main factor in why we get and stay sick. Plus, if you are killing off any bacteria, virus, fungus, cancer, etc, you MUST be helping your body to detox because it is too much for your liver to handle all on its own.
The Infrared Heating Pad: This is a lifesaver for me! It gets deeper down into your tissues than an electric heating pad and it does not emit EMFs which are harmful to your health. The relief is longer lasting than an electric pad, too! A must for anyone with muscle pain or bladder pain from IC. I also find it helpful for relaxation and falling asleep.
Infrared Sauna: Far-Infrared saunas are really expensive. I have a real one, but they’re not something you can necessarily give as a gift unless you have about ten grand to drop, haha. If so, message me and I’ll tell you about mine. But, you can give this gift of a portable infrared sauna! My Lyme Disease friends rave about this one and say it works really well for them. It helps to detox your body from die-off, mold, fungus, heavy metals, and other toxins. It’s not just for sick people either. Healthy people should also utilize them to stay healthy!
Did you know that the United States does not regulate the ingredients that go into beauty products? Yep. It’s true! There are so many harmful, toxic ingredients that are in our products that we use on a daily basis. They do not get filtered out and they stay in our systems and contribute to disease. There are heavy metals like aluminum and lead, and other toxins like parabens, hydroquinone, propylene glycol, the list goes on. Giving your friends or family a clean beauty product or set helps them to discover healthier brands and shows them that you care about their well-being. Here are some of my favorites products and gift sets by some awesome brands!
I love a good book! I don’t know what it is but ever since I got a bit older, I am so hungry for knowledge. I just want to be learning alllll the time! Learning about how to take better care of our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health is a great thing to do. I always feel so much better when I’m reading a book about mindset or spirituality. I also love my cookbooks so I can find great recipes that taste amazing and keep me on track with my nutrition. Here are some of my favorites:
Gabrielle Bernstein: Gabby is a spiritual teacher. She writes books about how to align yourself with the universe, transform your life from living in fear to living in love and faith, and how to manifest things you want in your life. You can read these books no matter what religion you follow. They apply to everyone! I love that. I have read “The Universe Has Your Back” and am currently reading “Super Attractor”. I feel so good when I read her words and put them into practice! I can honestly say my life has changed for the better since I started reading them! I also love the card deck that goes with “The Universe Has Your Back”. There is a card for each day. I keep it by my bedside and read it first thing in the morning and remember that thought throughout my day. Really great gift! Someone special gave it to me and I’m so glad they did 🙂
A New Earth & A Course In Miracles: These are also written by mindfulness teachers and spiritual teachers. They are eye-opening and really awaken you to yourself! If you’re looking to improve your life and relationships, these are wonderful books to read!
You are a Badass: Love this book! I am a self-doubter. It’s held me back my whole life. I see potential in just about everyone but myself and that is just plain stupid! I loved this book because it helped me to change my thought patterns and see my own limitless potential.
Cookbooks: These are some of my favorite cookbooks! I absolutely love Danielle Walker, the author of the Against All Grain series. She does amazing Paleo (gluten free, dairy free, grain free, refined sugar-free, legume free, soy free) recipes that taste amazing! I also love the Paleo Approach Cookbook by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne because it teaches you about Paleo and Autoimmune Paleo, why it’s an effective diet for those of us struggling with autoimmunity, and has recipes to boot! The books listed by Dr. Wahls, Dr. Mark Hyman, Jennifer Robbins, and Mickey Trescott are also fabulous! They are all leaders in the Paleo and Autoimmune communities and have so much knowledge and incredible recipes, too! I also love the Forks Over Knives series for eating plant-based. I can’t always eat plant based, but if my gut would allow, I would! These would be great gifts for your vegan friends, or others that want to eat more plants in a delicious way! I also included this “Crystals for Beginners” book because I have a crystal kit linked later in the post. My friend gave me this book and it is so interesting. Crystals are very healing! I can feel the energy just holding one. It’s a great wellness gift!
I wasn’t quite sure how to categorize all of these, so I will briefly cover each one!
Foam rollers: These are really great for anyone who loves to workout, or complains of sore, tight muscles! This is me! Haha. My muscles are always in knots. These foam rollers have really helped me to loosen them up and relieve some of the pain.
Dry Brush: Dry brushing is another easy way to detox! You just simply brush your skin in upward circles before you get into the shower. It helps to lift dead skin and any toxins that we sweat out that are left on our skin that could be re-absorbed. It also helps with lymphatic drainage!
HUM Nutrition Skin Heroes Pre & Probiotic: This supplement helps your gut and your skin! Perfect for your wellness and beauty-loving friend!
Zypan: I love this supplement! In my top 3 Supplements of all-time! I wrote a whole blog post on it. This is hydrochloric acid in a very natural form. Standard Process is one of the oldest wellness companies. They make very high quality, pure supplements. The hydrochloric acid helps your stomach to break down food, especially proteins. As we age, our stomach acid decreases. We tend to get more bloated and don’t absorb our nutrients. By supplementing with HCL you can reduce the bloat and have more energy because your body is absorbing your food!
Crystals: I linked a crystal pendulum, water bottle, and a couple of crystal sets. As I mentioned before, crystals have healing powers! I love my pendulum! It’s so fun to dowse to see if certain foods are good for you or not. Other people even ask it questions about life! Just YouTube “dowsing” and you’ll find a video that teaches you how to use a pendulum. The crystal kits are great for people who are into wellness, reiki, and energy healing! I love the crystal water bottle, because it infuses your water with the healing energy of the crystals!
21 & Me: This is such a great gift! My brother got it for me last year. You can get your DNA tested to show your ancestory AND your genes to check for health problems that might run in your family. This way you can be more proactive to prevent them!
