10 Natural Holiday Gift Ideas
It’s almost that time of the year!
The time to find gifts for everyone, for the fast-approaching holidays. And I know what you’re thinking: ok, Didi, you’re way too early. But it’s actually more than time to start looking for holiday gift ideas since you should also plan your budget around your spendings.
This year, I encourage you to give the gift of health and at a good price.
There are many ways and options. If you want to give meaningful, organic and budget-friendly gifts to your loved ones; if you’re interested in helping them change their health, keep reading.
Himalayan salt is known for its healing properties. It cleanses out the air which makes it easier for anybody to breathe, especially for asthmatic people. At this time of the year, when microbes and viruses are everywhere, having a Himalayan salt lamp is more than handy, as it can purify the air in the house.
This kind of lamp has negative ion charges which are what our body needs to have increased energy levels. It can help us concentrate and even sleep better. I recommend this gift to everyone: the youngster like the older adult will benefit from having a Himalayan salt lamp next to his/her bed, to purify the air in the bedroom and reduce the risks of infection.
I’ve talked about essential oils in my 11 things a Cyster Shouldn’t Live Without post, and I can’t tell you all of their benefits in one single post. But I can tell you that I use them every day. Whether it’s by
-Diffusing a lemon or peppermint essential oil in the air to freshen it up
-By massaging some frankincense essential oil on my temples to get rid of a stubborn headache
-By getting a foot massage from my husband with lavender essential oil or
-By using tea tree essential oil as an acne spot treatment.
These are only just a few of the ways you could use essential oils. By giving this set as a gift, you’re literally offering a piece of health to your loved ones!
3. Gourmet Peanut Assortment in 5-Tier Tin Tower incl. Bacon Ranch, Black Pepper, Sugar Roasted, Sriracha & Salted Flavors
This one is a little further along the “healthy side,” but I find it’s a good alternative to chocolate. It’s made up of roasted and flavored peanuts, which have some great health benefits. Peanuts are rich in fibers, protein, and minerals. They’re also a big source of fat, but we’re talking about good fat here. So it’s full of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, which will make cravings satisfied
Burt’s Bees reputation precedes it. All their products are made with natural ingredients that will make your loved one’s body good. This hand repair gift set is perfect for women who love gentle smells such as the ones from almonds, shea butter, and lemon.
I know I would be happy receiving this gift! As a nurse, my hands always need an extra TLC, since I keep washing them with alcohol-based products. Not only nurses but anybody with dry hands, especially at this time of the year, will benefit from such thoughtful gift!
This gift is perfect for both Him and Her. Natural, handmade luxury soaps with delightful flavors. There’s a coffee exfoliating soap, a purifying charcoal soap, a moisturizing rose oil soap and a wood soap dish.
We use soaps on our skin every single day of our lives. So the quality of the soaps we use should matter a lot. Commercial soaps can mess up our hormones, as they’re made of harmful synthetic chemicals that are known as endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs). If our hormones are messed up, our mood and whole body get out of whack. So again, this gift can help us rebalance everything.
I think it’s a good idea to include a gift option for pregnant women since most of us know one. What I like about this pregnancy box is that it’s made by a family run company that operates an environmentally friendly business. There’s a prenatal herbal tea (pregnant ladies should still consult their MD if unsure of the safety of this tea for their baby) as well as a tea infuser and some great natural skin care butter. All of it comes in a 100% recycled packaging. I love supporting family-owned business AND give meaningful, thoughtful gift!
By now, you already know that some of my favorite spices are turmeric, ginger, cinnamon. These are truly healing spices. They all have anti-inflammatory properties; are great for digestion, and help to heal from within as they are a great source of anti-oxidants. These spices are certified organic and fresh. They are a great way to kick-start the new year and update your spice cabinet. So I say go for it! Offer them to your loved ones!
This book gets to the root of things by showing us the early beginnings of Western Medicine. It guides people who have cancer by really breaking down what is going on in the body, and what your body truly needs to get rid of cancer cells.
This book also speaks to the one who would like to avoid cancer, by really outlining the diets, the exercise, the stress relief and steps one must take to prevent cancer and other debilitating diseases.
Even if one of your loved ones received terrible news during the year, there’s always hope: and this book will help them see the light. I strongly recommend it as a gift that is priceless.
