Lisa’s Top 10 Last-Minute Gift Guide
Looking for last minute gifts for the holidays?
It’s no surprise that I’m sharing my Last-Minute Gift Guide since gift-giving is one of my love languages. I love everything about gifts – picking them out, ordering them, wrapping them, and of course, giving them.
Christmas is by far my favorite holiday of the year. I love everything about it. In fact, I just gifted each of my Legal Love Affiliates with a free DIY Legal Template to thank them for being part of the tribe (which totals $60k of free legal documents!) I LOVE to give gifts!
If you haven’t finished (or started!) your holiday shopping yet, I wanted to help you out by sharing some of my favorite gifts. You can find some of them on my Resources page and others I am sharing here for the first time.
All (except one!) are under $50, so they make great stocking gifts, hostess gifts, team gifts, or gifts to wrap and put under the tree for your loved ones or for yourself from Santa – ha!
My Top 10 Last-Minute Gifts:
#1 – Danielle La Porte Ayurvedic candles*
These Danielle LaPorte Ayurvedic candles are my favorites.* They’re organic, fair trade, soy candles* with essential oil scents to support each dosha. She has 4 options: “Clarity is sexy” (vata). “Peace is power” (pitta). “Energy moves” (kapha). “Love so deeply” (tridoshic). I have Peace and Clarity on my office desk at all times to support and balance the fire & air of my pitta-vata dosha.

# 2 – Compliment earrings
These earrings (and their many other earring designs!) make the best gifts because they come with an inspirational message – a compliment! My friend and client Melissa Camilleri is a former high school teacher who now runs a successful jewelry and home goods company who donates part of her proceeds for scholarships for students. Everybody wins!

#3 – Spirit Mist Smokeless Smudge Spray
I use this Smokeless Smudge Spray at least once or twice a week in my home office. It takes away any old, residual energy and fills the room with positive energy flow. It’s got all of the good things from a traditional smudge which is used to cleanse and purify the air in a more convenient and easy package. Created with love by spiritual guide Rhonda Lee of Infusion for Life.
#4 – Manduka yoga mats*
I did a ton of research before I purchased my Manduka eKo Lite (4mm) yoga mat and I love it. It’s an eco-friendly, no-slip, biodegradable, non-Amazon harvested, natural tree rubber yoga mat which provides cushion and support without harming the planet. It’s the perfect gift for your yogi best friend – or even yourself!
#5 – Annmarie Skin Care products*
I learned about Annmarie Gianni’s “wildcrafted organic skin care” products from Kris Carr and I’m a convert! I love their Restore Travel Kit (includes Aloe-Herb Facial Cleanser, Dead Sea Scrub, Neroli Toning Mist, Anti-Aging Facial Oil, and Coconut Honey Mask). I am obsessed with the Anti-Aging Facial Oil – my skin feels soooo soft and my fine lines virtually disappear. This stuff is like magic – and it’s all-natural so you can feel good about what you’re putting on your skin.

#6 – Mantraband bracelets
These bracelets are one of my absolute favorite gifts to give. Mantrabands are simple, elegant bracelets with a touch of delicate polish and an uplifting message. They are all about optimism, positivity, mindfulness and act as a daily reminder of an affirmation that’s important to you – or to someone you love. They come in silver, yellow gold, and rose gold. My favorites are “Choose Love” and “Love and Light” (but they have lots of choices….)
#7 – Buddha Teas for the Chakras*
These high-vibe teas are perfect for the tea lover in your family. They are organic teas that come in unbleached teabags in 7 varieties to provide herbs that support each chakra to balance your energy. The Crown Chakra tea is my favorite – it’s a high-frequency tea of lavender, nutmeg and rose petals infused with the essence of amethyst that promotes spiritual connection, bliss, and prosperity. They’re perfect stocking stuffers and hostess gifts too!
#8 – Xen Strength Yoga with Danielle Diamond*
This is one of my go-to workouts. I met Danielle Diamond at Laura Belgray’s writing workshop in Cinque Terre, Italy and quickly fell in love with her “yoga with weights” online programs and videos. I love the time-saving approach of using weights (safely!) while posing in asanas to build muscle and balance at the same time. Plus, Danielle has been Bobbi Brown’s private yoga instructor so she’s the bomb. Your best friend, sister, or favorite yogi will love it too – just in time for the new year!
#9 – Kate Spade journals
I love these little Kate Spade journals because they are small enough to throw in your handbag but sturdy enough to use it often without it falling apart. Plus, who doesn’t love having their own initial on their journal? Your bestie will love it. So classy!
#10- Wisdom of Avalon Oracle Cards
This deck of oracle cards called Wisdom of Avalon by Colette Baron-Reid was my first – and it’s still my favorite! My mentor, Carey Peters of HCI, introduced me to the cards in January 2012, and, repeatedly, they have confirmed my intuitive hits and imparted universal wisdom that I use in life and business to guide and support my work. Another great stocking stuffer!
All of these resources I highly recommend, and I use each of them in my business or my life each and every day. If you sign up through my referral links with the asterisks, I may receive credit or commissions for your purchase.
