THE ULTIMATE WELLNESS GIFT GUIDE
Holy crap. I can’t believe Halloween & Thanksgiving have come and gone and now we’re talking Christmas!! So for all my #wellnesswarriors, their gift givers, and anyone who just wants something interesting to gift for the holidays, I put together a little gift guide of healthy living items that you can gift to just about anyone!
Nurse Jamie Roller - My bestie actually gifted this to me a year or so ago and I’m addicted. I roll every night before bed until my arm feels like its going to fall off. Facial rolling helps improve skin tone & texture, maximizes the efficacy of your skincare, energizes & enhances your skin, and is great for lymphatic draining and decreasing bloating. Plus it just feels so damn good!
Kopari Beauty Besties Set - Perf for the person who you have no idea what to get. This set will have you coco-covered from head to toe! And its non-GMO, vegan, cruelty-free, silicone-free & sulfate-free.
Slip Silk Eye Mask - I personally have two of these, one for home and one for travel, and I cannot sleep without it. Not only is it made of double-sided pure silk that was “developed and refined over ten years to provide the ultimate combination of shine, thickness, softness and durability” for light-blocking, uninterrupted sleep, but the material minimizes tugging on your delicate eye area, so you’ll save money on Botox. Sleep beautifully.
Skyn Iceland Skin Hangover Set - Tis the season of dry, stressed, depleted skin. This little kit is the perfect stocking stuffer and has everything one needs to brighten & hydrate in time to hit that mistletoe!
Farmacy Beauty The Mighties Set - Clean, naturally derived ingredients from organic farms that are cruelty-free, paraben-free, and free of formaldehyde and artificial coloring. The antioxidant ingredients suit all skin types and fight free radicals while nourishing, hydrating, firming and cleansing your skin. The ULTIMATE glow.

Dagne Dover Landon Carryall Gym Bag - Made of durable neoprene & a variety of colors, this cute carryall is perfect for the gym, work, travel or just everyday errands. Personalize it with their varsity patches for a cute custom look!
refresh2go Stainless Steel Filtered Water Bottle - I love this refresh2go water bottle because its stainless steel, it keeps your drinks HELLA cold, it has a built in straw for maximum efficiency (and minimum spilling) AND it has a BUILT IN FILTER. I mean, HELLO. You can fill this bad boy up ANYWHERE (literally) and have freshly filtered water. Oh and its 32oz so one fill will last you a bit - unless you’re like me and go through 5 of these a day. This is a must for gym, travel and LIFE. Hydration is key!
Tangram Smart Rope - First of all, if you haven’t jump roped in a while, it’s really freaking hard. In fact, it burns twice as many calories as running. This one not only keeps count of your jumps, but syncs to your phone or fitness wearable to keep count of your calorie burn. YES!
Page Thirty Three Marble Dumbbells - These 2.2lb dumbbells are a two-in-one gift, they’re practical and GORGEOUS. Use for lightweight resistance or as a paperweight or bookends.
Bala Bangle Weights - Fashionable and functional, these bracelets add extra resistance to your workouts for maximum effectiveness. Wear during yoga, running, pilates, barre, boxing and more to boost that workout routine.
Vision Driven Resistance Bands - These are hands down the best. resistance. bands. I’m not just saying that because they were developed by my trainer, Shantel Mendez. They’re a thick fabric that is substantial and provides maximum resistance without moving around or riding up like the rubber ones do. Plus they come with a leg & booty program to pump up that peach.
My Sweat Style Athleisure Subscription - Curated apparel hand-picked based on style, workouts & just life in general. Featuring name brand tops, sports bras, leggings, sweats & outerwear. Well + Good says, “The first subscription service that will deliver curated packages of on-trend, premium activewear to your door. It's like Stitch Fix for your gym bag."

Welleco Super Elixer - This daily green multivitamin is made from 45 whole food ingredients, is non-GMO, wheat-free, dairy-free, soy-free, vegan and has no refined sugars. Its perfect for the holiday season, when we tend to over-indulge, because these plant-based ingredients help our bodies heal from damage caused by sugar, dairy, alcohol & stress. Plus, the packaging is SO CHIC.

Hurom Slow Juicer - This bad boy can make more than just juice - you can make nut milk, tofu & even ice cream. “Hurom's patented Slow Squeeze Technology uses an auger to squeeze out juice instead of shredding fruits and vegetables with high-speed blades. This more natural motion minimizes heat and oxidation, preserving freshness and leaving nutrition intact.” It also comes in black, for those who aren’t into the rose gold & it includes different strainers so you can control the level of pulp in your juice (side note: the pulp has all the fiber and good stuff.)
Ninja Nutri Pro Personal Blender - Smoothies, protein shakes, ice cream, etc and WAY easier to clean than a regular blender. Need I say more?
Handheld Drink Mixer & Milk Frother - Its actually insane how much I get asked about this little gadget via social media. What’s even more insane is how OFTEN I USE IT. Whether I’m frothing milk, mixing up some matcha or hot chocolate, or just pulsing together my morning coffee with collage + MCT, this little guys is def worth that $15 bucks.
Air Fryer - Who likes french fries? Oh, everyone? Got it. Well, now you can make your own (not just fried potatoes but anything that you can fry) without the OIL. Yes, its true. Fry using hot air. Guilt-free fried food. It’s making me emotional just thinking about it guys. If you buy this, hit me up for the 2-ingredient air fryer bagel recipe.
