It’s that time of year again… HOLIDAY SHOPPING! I like to get my holiday shopping done as early as I can so I can avoid as much stress as possible later in the season, and I like to make sure I snag gifts before they sell out! This year I’ll be posting a gift guide for her, a gift guide for him, and a healthy gift guide for everyone, so hopefully these guides give you some helpful ideas of what to grab for your loved ones (or what to ask for yourself!). Let’s hop right into some of my top picks for the woman in your life!
Beautycounter Counter+ Skin Care Favorites – This set features four of Beautycounter’s best-selling skincare products – the Lotus Glow Cleansing Stick, the Overnight Resurfacing Peel, the No. 1 Brightening Facial Oil, and the Charcoal Face Mask. Personally, I cannot live without these products! This is a great way to try out nontoxic skincare and get introduced to the brand if you haven’t already — these are Holy Grail items! I don’t know any woman who wouldn’t love to receive high-quality, safe skin care as a gift! These products will TRANSFORM your skin!
Beautycounter Jellies – I am obsessed with this limited edition lip set! These glosses are fun, light, and taste delicious (they’re sweetened with Stevia). And they’re not sticky! These are perfect for a woman of any age, and they’ll go with any skin tone because they’re not opaque. You can give someone the full set or break it apart to give to different people! This is the sophisticated, safer upgrade from old-school lip smackers. ;P
Beautycounter Transforming Lip Duo – The Transforming Lip Duo is one of my favorite sets to give as a gift because you don’t have to worry about finding the right lip shade to match someone’s skin tone – this does it for you! The Lip Tint adjusts to your skin tone specifically to create the perfect, customized pink shade for your complexion – it’s magical.
Beautycounter Starlight Eyeshadow Palette – Perfect for any makeup lover in your life, this sleek palette contains five shades that flatter all skin tones. You can easily make a daytime or evening look with these shades, and the palette is extremely travel-friendly (especially because it comes with a mirror)!
Alitura Naturals Instant Radiance Package – This set comes with the Alitura Clay Mask, Gold Serum, and derma-roller, which work together to leave your skin feeling brighter, rejuvenated, and radiant. These products are amazing for anti-aging effects as well as eliminating any scarring on the skin. The Alitura Clay Mask is a must-have skincare product, in my opinion! (You can use the code “CRW” for 20% off any Alitura Naturals products! Check out this podcast episode with founder Andy Hnilo to learn more about the company!)
Ella+Mila Nontoxic Nail Polish Set – It can be hard to find safer alternatives to nail polish, but Ella+Mila is some of the best on the market! These nail polishes are 7-free which means they don’t contain the top 7 harmful ingredients found in most nail polishes, including formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, Formaldehyde Resin, and Camphor. They’re vegan, cruelty-free, certified by PETA, and available in a wide variety of colors!
CRYSTAL365 Book + Crystal Kit – This is the perfect gift for anyone who is brand new to crystals but interested in learning more, or for anyone who already loves crystals but wants to learn even more about them. CRYSTAL365 breaks down everything you need to know about crystals and features 52 specific crystals you can use to work toward different intentions, and the kit comes with all 52 crystals featured in the book!
Pendulum – We all know I’m obsessed with my pendulum and probably have an unhealthy attachment to it (sort of kidding…), and I wish I had gotten one before I started doing Reiki! You don’t have to be a Reiki practitioner or any other type of practitioner to use a pendulum! It’s such a fun tool to help connect with your intuition and energy, and I think it can be a great gift! Pick a pendulum made with a crystal that has properties that would really resonate with whoever the pendulum is for.
Reiki-Charged Chakra Candle – Everyone loves a good candle, so why not get one that also helps to balance out her chakras? Each color in this candle represents a different chakra, and it comes with crystals that help to balance each chakra as well! It’s also made with 100% soy wax and is unscented so you don’t have to worry about “fragrance” (which is typically a harmful ingredient).
Craft + Foster Candle – If your girl isn’t into balancing her chakras, check out Craft + Foster soy candles. I am obsessed with these. They smell amazing, having different layers of scent, and are scented with essential oils. I think candles are such a great gift because a lot of people don’t bother buying them for themselves, but they’re a total self-care necessity.
Cute Mug, Funny Mug, ANY MUG – You cannot go wrong with a cute mug for any friend. Am I the only one who collects mugs?! Pair it with a box of Four Sigmatic, her favorite tea, a lip gloss, movie tickets, or a gift card, and you’re good to go! There are so many cute mugs you can get, but I love to find a unique mug that reminds me of the specific person. My favorite places to look are Etsy and Anthropologie. On Etsy you can literally search “cute mug” or “funny mug” or “customized mug” to find something you like best! Pick a mug that will make her smile.
doTERRA Touch Trio – This trio contains doTeERRA’s Balance, Serenity, and Helichrysum roller balls that offer maximum absorption when applied to the skin. This is a great gift because you can give someone blends they might not have tried before, and they don’t need a diffuser to use them! These are three of my favorite blends from doTERRA!
Essential Oil Diffuser Bracelet – This is a locket-style bracelet that allows you to put a different essential oil onto each pad (comes with 8) so you can have your favorite essential oil scent with you all day long! Just swap out the pad for whatever scent you need that day and you’re good to go!
Year of Growth Book / Daily Planner – The key to life is good planning, I promise. How amazing is this planner?! It incorporates the moon cycles into each month’s planning and allows space for reflections and growth. It has motivational quotes, space for you to write out the best parts of your day and your future goals, and more. A good planner can transform your year!
Ned Natural Cycle Collection – You might not want to get this for someone you’re not very close with (“Hey Jane, you really need to balance your hormones…”), but this is an AMAZING gift to get one of your close friends, because it will change her life. The Ned Natural Cycle Collection is designed to help naturally balance out female hormones and get your body back into harmony again using premium CBD products. Balancing out your hormones can help with mood, period symptoms / regularity, skin health, hair, energy levels, and much more. This collection has totally changed my life, and I’ve heard nothing but great things from my clients who have also been using it! The full kit comes with 4 CBD products – the Hormone Balance Blend Oil, the Period Ease Blend Oil, the Period Soothe Salve, and the Hormone Energize Roll-on! You can use the code “WELLNESS” for 15% off any Ned products!
Angel Cards – Last year I recommended gifting a Tarot deck, so why not Angel cards this year?! This deck is great if you’re interested in working more with Archangels and getting messages from your guardian angels about relationships, your life purpose, manifestations, and more. You can use these if you’re a total beginner or if you’re well-versed in all things angel cards! I find that angel cards tend to be a bit more uplifting than Tarot… ;P
S’well Water Bottle – You really can’t go wrong with a stainless steel water bottle, and S’well makes top quality water bottles that are nice and slim so they don’t get in the way, and they have so many different color / print options!
Barefoot Dreams Robe – If you haven’t put on a Barefoot Dreams robe yet, you are SERIOUSLY missing out. These are the softest things in the world, and my dream gift.
Wishbeads Bracelet – I am obsessed with these bracelets! They’re made with crystal stones and have a place for you to write your “wish” (intention, manifestation, etc.) so you have it with you at all times. There is also an app you can download with this bracelet that takes you through the process of creating your wish and tells you exactly what to do every day to reach that goal.
Spa Day Gift Card – If there’s a local spa that you love, GIFT A SPA DAY! I melt with happiness whenever someone gives me a gift card specifically for a massage, facial, or pedicure because it forces me to have self-care time. We could all use a little more of that!
Paleo Women Lifestyle Program – THIS IS THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING! If the woman in mind loves all things health and wellness, is interested in personal growth / self-development, and / or has some health issues she’s been struggling to work through, sign her up for the self-study version of my online course! This course covers everything every woman needs to know to optimize her health. I teach you all about the macronutrients, building a balanced plate, the most common health mistakes women make and how to avoid them, grocery shopping and cooking hacks, how to balance your hormones, stress management, body image, and more! You can use the code “bf2019” for 20% off!
