The wellness gift guide

Looking to spread the gift of wellness this holiday season?  My eighteen favorite wellness gifts include practical, charming, and luxurious offerings for everyone on your list.  Go ahead, treat yourself too!  Here's to happy + healthy holidays for all!   

Vitamix S30 ($399) || A quality blender is a staple in my house - as in, it's one of the few kitchen appliances that landed an official space on my countertop because I use it daily.  I've always noticed that other blenders were noisy, but it become abundantly apparent in an apartment with a napping baby.  The Vitamix S30 is the quietest blender I've found, and it can work its magic on anything!  Plus it's festively fun in the Candy Apple Red option!

Victory Dance Foods Garden Granola (email for prices + ordering) || Looking for a festive stocking stuffer?  The mother-daughter team at Victory Dance Foods produces small-batch granola and muesli, and the The Garden Granola is divine.  The juiced granola is overflowing with nutritious ingredients (think organic beet juice blend atop a variety of nuts, seeds, fruits, and oats) and works wonders solo or as a topping!  **Ordering currently available through email...online store launching soon!  

OXO Good Grips® Salad Chopper and Bowl ($24.99) || Love salads but hate that all the delicious toppings end up at the bottom of the bowl? The OXO Good Grips® Salad Chopper and Bowl solves that problem!  Making a chopped salad has never been easier and each forkful is guaranteed to be the perfect bite. 

Cutco Petite Chef's Knife ($130) || Whether a novice or experienced chef, a quality knife makes a world of difference in the ease + style of meal prep.  For a gift that won't completely break the bank, skip the full knife set and block and opt for the high-quality Cutco Petite Chef's Knife.  

All-Clad Deluxe Slow Cooker ($249.95) || The 7-Qt All-Clad Deluxe Slow Cooker with Cast-Aluminum Insert has been a game-changer in my kitchen.  The insert goes seamlessly from stovetop to slow cooker to tabletop further minimizing the amount of dirty dishes left for clean up duty (yay!).  And speaking of cleaning up, any leftovers float out of the cast-aluminum insert, so you can say goodbye to bouts of heavy duty soaking and scrubbing. 

Beyond Yoga Spacedye Long Leggings ($88) || If you need a gift that oozes comfort, look to Beyond Yoga's Spacedye Long Legging.  The fabric is the softest (seriously!), and they come in a variety of fun colors!  Ideal for exercising, lounging, or frolicking around town.

January Labs Moisture Balancing Lotion ($28) || After years of searching for a moisturizer that didn't irritate my sensitive skin, my sister recommended Moisture Balancing Lotion by January Labs, and just like that my skin was hydrated and the balance was restored.  Skincare products are not my area of expertise, but this one includes plant-based ingredients like avocado oil, olive oil, and green tea extract, so it's basically my jam.
