The Becoming Fully Human Healthy Holiday Gift Guide

If we’re going to destroy our souls with materialism, might as well do it in the name of heath, right?! No but seriously, holiday gift giving is somewhat of a foul attempt to concretize love- which truly is not possible. But this gift guide is rooted in products I truly enjoy, supports great companies, and promotes a healthy/ happy mind, body, and soul- which is definitely a good place to start.

From the sleeping beauty, and the nature nut, the fitness buff, to the top chef, the baby mama, the guy’s guy, and the crazy spiritual human in your life…. these gifts lists are curated to help you give something worth receiving!

Some things can’t be Bought

  1. Your air miles/ flight rewards (honestly, best gift ever?!!!!!!!)

  2. Heartfelt coupons (like a homemade dinner cooked for 2) This shouldn’t be something you already ought to be doing/ already do. Think hard, something meaningful!

  3. Go foraging! Catch the end of the autumn foraging season, and consider preparing your goods in a tincture form, you can label it “Ready July 2019” (or whatever date).

  4. Homemade ferments! Time your project so that the ferment is ready to consume on gift-giving day! You could also wrap it and store it in the fridge if it’s ready earlier.

  5. Homemade chocolates (get recipes HERE)

  7. A homemade card

  8. Wild picked + pressed flowers

  9. Honey Frankincense face mask (get recipe HERE)

  10. A jar with little notes: 30, or 365 days worth. Get a glass jar, and fill it with small love notes, either a month’s worth, or go big and write 365. Your loved one can pick out a note every day.

  11. Homemade spice blend: go to your local organic spice shop and create a custom blend (get inspired HERE), store in a small glass mason jar, with a homemade label.

  12. Customized herbal tea blend: same as spice blends- get a blend of loose leaf herbs, flowers, barks, etc, and store hand picked tea in a large glass mason jar. Label ingredients. (Get inspired HERE).
