With the holiday season quickly approaching, it’s time to figure out the perfect gift for everyone on your list. With online shopping being the norm this year and limited options for in-store browsing, we’ve pulled together some helpful and creative gift ideas for your loved ones of all ages and interests!
For the Wellness-Lover
Sometimes the best gift is something the person didn’t know they needed. Wellness gifts tend to have that effect. One of the trendiest gifts this holiday is essential oils. With hundreds of different uses, these aromatic oils help heal the mind, body and spirit. Essential oils sampler sets make great gifts and allow the recipient to discover what works best for them. The Svasthya Body & Mind Essential Oil Balms Multi Pack Gift Set includes 5 essential body balms made with therapeutic grade essential oils with many different purposes including stress relief.
Or if you’d prefer to gift a selection of oils there are many options of scents and types to choose from. For an on-the-go moment, Humco Natural Therapies offer essential oils in a rollerball which is perfect for travelling or using at work. Another popular option is the pure essential oil which can be used in diffusers, DIY skin care and more. Sky Organics offers a 100% pure + steam distilled formula which can be used in a variety of ways.
Oil pulling came onto our radar a few years ago when it was popularized by Gwyneth Paltrow—though the practice is rooted in Ayurveda. This process involves swishing around coconut oil (or the oil of your choice) around in the mouth for up to twenty minutes. We know this sounds strange but the idea is to help strengthen your gums, freshen breath and naturally whiten teeth. When you’re finished swishing, you spit out the oil into a trash can (it can harden in your sink) and follow up this process by brushing your teeth as you normally would. SKINNY & CO. Peppermint Oil Pulling is perfect for helping you achieve an overall healthier mouth. Another positive aspect is that coconut oil won’t harm your teeth enamel like other acidic oils.
For the Foodie
DNA and food allergy kits might be all the rage but the latest at-home kit is for your gut. Gift someone a personalized supplement plan that is completely custom to their DNA—check out Thryve Inside Gut Health Program. Wellness gurus around the world are raving about Thryve, a company that customizes probiotics for each individual, based on their health needs. Thryve believes that probiotics are not ‘one size fits all’, which is why they created probiotic supplement plans that are completely individualized based on your DNA.
