Want to know my fave holiday gifts? It’s my holiday gift guide!
I’ll admit I am born to shop. My mom and my sister…not so much. But me, definitely. ????
Since I love seeing other people’s holiday gift guides, I thought I’d create my own this year.????
Here are some of my favorite gifts which I love to give (and receive ????). I hope it gives you some fun gift ideas for those you love.????????????
For the kitchen & home…
Rose Gold Reusable Drinking Straws – $5.99 for 8
Environmentally-friendly and oh so pretty to look at, these rose gold reusable drinking straws are made from stainless steel and come with 2 straw cleaning brushes and a free carrying pouch so you can take them when you travel. ????
Anthropologie Monogram Agate Coasters – $16.00 each
These beautiful coasters are hand-carved from natural agate stone and can be monogrammed for a personal touch. They’re pretty to look at and also a practical gift that can be used on a coffee table, bedroom nightstand or even in your office for your afternoon mug of green tea. Buy one or stack them in a set and tie them up with a pretty ribbon. A perfect hostess gift or gorgeous gift for a friend or family member. ????
For health & fitness lovers…
P.volve – Beginner Kit – $79.99 or 4 payments of $20
Gift a Beginner Kit (includes p.ball, hand weights and ankle weights) or a free 14-day trial for streaming videos full of functional exercises designed to give you a “peach-shaped” booty. Whew! I started working out with p.volve through their streaming video workouts of 26-60 minutes using their p.ball, p.band, slant board, p.3 trainer, weights and bands last April and my booty and legs have firmed up sooooo much. This company is only 2 years old but they are crazy-effective workouts. Free shipping for orders over $50. ????
Combine creative yoga flow with full body strength training and you get the best of both worlds… Xen Strength Yoga. Gift the 28-Day Xen Strength Challenge which is a comprehensive yoga & wellness program perfect for the new year. It’s taught by Danielle Diamond who I spent a week with in Italy at Laura Belgray’s writing workshop. She’s the real deal – she’s privately trained cosmetics guru Bobbie Brown (!) and put together this easy-to-do combo workout system. ????
For the face & body…
Beautycounter Mini Lip Gloss Vault* – $89 for a set of 10
I tried on these lip glosses at a recent conference in Florida and I am a new convert to Beautycounter! They are the smoothest (non-sticky!) yummy lip glosses in a million colors for wearable mega shimmer and shine – and they are CLEAN BEAUTY with no toxic ingredients. (Beautycounter is EWG Verified which is the highest ranking for rigorous green beauty standards by the Environmental Working Group!) Grab this set to give a few as stocking stuffers and save a few for yourself. ????
Goop G.Nite Bedtime Bath Soak – $35.00
For the bath lovers in your life who like to end the day with a soak to relax and de-stress before climbing into bed. This soak contains the botanicals valerian root, passion flower, and hops, the essential oils of Australian sandalwood, lavender, and spikenard, and pharmaceutical-grade Epsom salts, Celtic sea salt, Dead Sea salt, and magnesium citrate for that ahhhhh feeling after a long day. A great gift for anyone you know who wants more relaxation in their life! ????
For your biz bestie…
These are some of the coziest, softest socks I own! I just bought a 4 pairs before our trip to New Zealand. They’re great over jeans under short boots or for just lounging in your slippers at home. They’re stretchy and warm with a slouchy fit but have reinforced toes and heels and come in 7 colors. You can get them through many sites but I like Nordstrom because of their excellent customer service. This is a fun gift to keep those tootsies warm this winter! ????
Energy Almanac – $34.99
This is the 2nd year I’ve used the Energy Almanac which brings together some very talented women sharing monthly astrology, yoga, essential oils, moon, numerology, coaching, nourishment, crystal wisdom and tips in one place to plan by the planets and stay in flow with the cosmos. (This my dear friend Heidi Symonds – aka The Healthy Godmother – is the contributor offering monthly delicious nourishment tips!) This book is full of gorgeous monthly calendar pages (1 page per month) to help you prepare and plan ahead and stay in tune with nature around you. ????
For your business…
Join me and up to 8 other heart-centered biz owners for a 4-day luxury retreat in Florence in 2020 to work on your business growth, get clear about your next legal steps and experience private tours of some of Italy’s most famous masterpieces like Michaelangelo’s David statue, the majestic Duomo cathedral and the gilded Pitti Palace all while eating creamy gelato, homemade pasta and local Tuscany wines. Exact dates are TBD but to be the FIRST to receive an invitation, click the link above or send a quick email to email@example.com and tell us “More please about the Florence Retreat!” and we’ll keep you in the inner circle! (BTW, this photo is of the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge during our Florence visit 2 years ago. Scott and I are headed back to Florence over the Christmas holiday to plan this retreat!) I can’t wait! ????
Haute Stock Photos* – $199-299 for annual membership subscription
I love these stylish images that Heather and I often use for my e-newsletters, website, podcast and more. They’re clean and happy – and there are hundreds of images from which to choose. You just become a member then login and download however many images you want. It makes it so easy to have a one-stop shop for paid stock images (remember, don’t just Google images to use – you could be violating other people’s copyrights!). Use these – it will save you time, money and the risk of copyright violations of using others’ photos without permission. ????
I hope you enjoyed checking out these fun holiday gifts for the kitchen & home, face & body, and for your fitness friends, biz besties and business!! I sure had a blast putting it together!!
Happy holidays – and happy shopping for ALL of the peeps who you love!
*For some of these holiday gifts, I do receive a commission as an affiliate and business owner. The funny thing is that I was recommending them to friends before even becoming an affiliate so I’m a #ravingfan of these gifty gifts and have been for a long time…I hope they brought you joy today and you enjoyed seeing them too! 🙂
