My Favorite Things! Healthy Holiday Gift Ideas

by | Dec 10, 2014 | Blog, Holidays

I love holiday shopping….for myself. Hahaha. I have to confess that I’m a super practical girl. I don’t like frivolous things. I think I’m a minimalist. If I can’t use it, I don’t want it. I don’t like clutter, I don’t like knick-knacks (I actually kinda hate them). I have been known to ask for dish towels and a vacuum for Christmas before (and have been THRILLED to receive them). I get a lot of crap about this from my family. Eh, you know, we all have our little things. Whether you’re a minimalist or not, I thought I’d share my favorite healthy holiday gift ideas in case you still have shopping to do!

The primary thing on my list this year is books. I absolutely love to read and think books are great gifts.

Here are a few of my FAVE books – I’ve highlighted and underlined just about every page in all three!!

The Obstacle Is the Way – The Timeless Art of Turning Trials Into Triumph

The Motivation Manifesto – 9 Declarations to Claim Your Personal Power

Books On My List This Year – I haven’t read these but they’re at the top of my list!!

Great by Choice

Girl Stuff For Yourself Or The Ladies On Your List!

Lululemon Bang Buster Headband – We won’t count how many I have but this is the ONLY headband I’ll wear during my workouts!!! I can’t have too many. These are perfect (but I hate the way the model wears them on their site)

Athleta Power lift Tights – These are awesome. Great fit, warm, amazing.

Random Stuff I’m Digging

Oh She Glows Tea – This is brand new and I recently got my first order. I’ll DEFINITELY be ordering more!! Its organic, its fair trade and most importantly, its amazing. I got 3 flavors initially and I’m obsessed with them all. I got the Apple Crumble, Black Maple and Caramel Latte. INSANE.

Polar FT4 Heart Rate Monitor – If you follow me on instagram you know I’m a huge fan of working out with my HR monitor. I used to wear it all the time and then I took a break for a while but I’m back to wearing it and I’ll never stop. I’ve tried 4 or 5 different ones and I like this one the best.

What’s on your list this year? I’m genuinely curious – let me know so I don’t miss out on any great ideas! I’m still building my list. What’s your “gotta have it”?
