Gift Guide for Self Care 2022
Are you starting to stress over your Christmas gift list? I can’t believe that it is only a few days away! But don’t worry. I have put together a few of my favorite gift options for you! If you order now they should be on your doorstep just in time to give them!
Holiday Trio Box
Endangered Species Chocolate makes the perfect gift for the environmentally-conscious chocolate lover in your life. I love ESC’s mission to produce delicious, ethically sourced chocolate while creating a positive impact. They donate 10% of their net profit to organizations such as the National Forest Foundation, Dian Fossey Gorilla Foundation, and the Wildlife Conservation Network, among others. Since 2016, ESC has donated $2.6 million to their giveback partners.
In addition to improving the welfare of the planet and its inhabitants, ESC also strives to make chocolate with sustainably sourced ingredients. All of their chocolate bars are gluten-free, and most flavors are vegan. Choose a gift you’ll feel good about giving and they’ll feel good about eating. Try the holiday trio box for a nice variety to get them started!
Dry Farm wines Subscription box
The only gift better than a bottle of wine for the wine lover in your life is a monthly Dry Farm Wines subscription box! Choose from a selection of red, white, rosé, and sparkling wine, how many bottles do you want to be delivered, and how often. Something I love about Dry Farm is that they only carry Natural Wines. They are sustainable because of the “dry farming” technique used–no irrigation means billions of gallons of water saved. Natural Wine farmers treat their land as a life-sustaining ecosystem rather than a factory. All the wines are also zero sugar, low alcohol percentage, are non-GMO, and contain no toxic additives. This is definitely a gift that will delight its recipient. They can feel good knowing they are drinking the highest quality wine that is good for their body and the planet. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!
When you gift a Peloton subscription, you’re giving the gift of health and wellness! And that’s all we want for our loved ones, right? To give a Peloton membership as a gift, you can simply buy an Apple gift card as the membership is purchased in-app. With a subscription through the Peloton app, you get access to thousands of classes that can be done with or without equipment. Give your fit friend the opportunity to kickstart their new year focusing on health and wellness!
Billion Dollar Beauty
This customizable palette from Billion Dollar Beauty is the perfect way to gift a full face of makeup tailored to their preferences. You can choose shades of brow powder, eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick, and the palette will be assembled for you in a magnetic case complete with a mirror. This is great for the busy ladies in your life who need a convenient makeup setup with everything in one place. It’s also super portable for travel–the case itself is drop-proof and TSA-approved!
Chair Yoga Book
If you’re looking for a gift for someone in your life who is new to yoga and wants to learn more, or who isn’t active at all, my book Chair Yoga is a great choice! I share lots of yoga poses and beginner-friendly exercises that are easily accessible to people of all skill levels. This is especially useful for those who work office jobs and spend most of their day sitting or people who want to incorporate exercise and movement into their life but just can’t find the time. This is a simple and approachable way to give the gift of mental and physical wellness.
Thayer’s Natural Remedies
Thayer’s Natural Remedies strives to create products that are pure, effective, and sustainable. I love that they recognize and adhere to their social and environmental responsibilities by being 100% cruelty-free, using recycled materials for packaging, and avoiding the use of artificial colors, dyes, and fragrances. Thayer’s specializes in facial toners with witch hazel as the star ingredient. Using a toner can help to balance your skin’s pH, hydrate, and remove bacteria. This is the perfect gift for the skincare junkie in your life!
I hope you found something on this list that would be perfect for those you are still trying to cross off your list. If none of these sound good maybe they can bring you a little inspiration or point you in the right direction. At the end of the day remember that the Holidays are about quality time and enjoying special moments together. Happy gifting!
