10 Healthy Holiday Gift Ideas

Posted on December 7, 2016 by Amy Krasner

Are you a last minute gift shopper like I am?

It’s not because I don’t care about the people that I am shopping for, of course I do! It’s just that I never know what to buy them.

So, this year I have put together some great last minute healthy holiday gift ideas that you can share with your family and friends this year.

Healthy Holiday Gift Guide

  1. A Spiralizer- I use my spiralizer all the time to make Zucchini noodles. You can get a small handheld one that works great or the original counter top spiralizer. I even have a little blog post with a video to show you how to make Zoodles (aka zucchini noodles). ($10-$20)Celebrations cookbook
  2. Celebrations’ cookbook  by Danielle Walker. This book is great for anyone who follows a gluten-free, grain-free or dairy-free approach. Or, for anyone who is health conscious that likes to entertain. There are tons of wonderful holiday recipes in this book to make sure that no one has to miss out on their favorite holiday meals because of a food sensitivity or a health issue that they are experiencing. ($20)
  1. An inspiring book. My most recent inspiring reads are:
  1. A 5 or 10 class pack to a yoga studio (my favorite is Buddhi yoga) or a gym/boutique workout (I personally love Barre classes at Studio Barre). This is a great gift to support someone in getting back into their workout routine or yoga practice in the New Year. ($160-$275 | $180-$340)


  1. Paleo pancake mix (good stocking stuffer!)- This pancake mix is a great gluten-free and grain-free option. All they have to do is add water to the batter and cook the pancakes. I love to top mine with coconut palm nectar, some cinnamon and some berries. ($8)
  1. Hydroflask water bottle – these come in all different colors and sizes. This type of water bottle keeps your water nice and cold throughout the day. You can gift one of their reusable coffee and tea flasks. ($30)


  1. Live a Lot chocolate– who doesn’t love a little bit of healthy chocolate? My friend’s Giovanna and Reggie are the masterminds behind this amazing chocolate brand. Their chocolate is infused with all sorts of healthy ingredients and is made with coconut palm sugar instead of cane sugar. I’ve tried all of the flavors and it is way too hard to choose just one to recommend- they are delicious! ($6-$20)
  1. Neakita Tea – also another handcrafted product by a talented friend of mine. Neakita is no ordinary tea brand- each tea has a specific purpose to support different areas of your health. I personally love the Wisdom blend because it helps me to stay alert and focused without getting a caffeine buz. Not only are these teas delicious but they also make a very beautiful gift. ($22)
  1. A relaxing massage- most people don’t take the time for self-care. Gifting a massage is a great way to give your loved ones a few moments of quiet time. Consider sending them to a holistic spa like Lemongrass in Encinitas for a truly healing massage experience. ($150-$200)


  1. Charcoal Cleansing Soap Bar from Beauty Counter- this magical bar of soap will leave your skin feeling clean and nourished. It is made with coconut oil, green tea, and charcoal designed to help detoxify the skin for a smooth and bright complexion. ($24)

Bonus Gift Idea:

One-Day Wellness Retreat in San Diego – On January 8th, I will be hosting a Women’s Wellness event to help you ‘get clear’ on your health goals and to put together an action plan for 2017. There will be a community of supportive women who are on their health journeys along side with you enjoying a beautiful lunch, meditation, yoga, and many more nourishing activities. ($197)

I hope that you enjoyed these gift ideas. Maybe the best gift idea is to pick up the phone and call a friend to schedule a date to go for a walk or a hike together. Gifts don’t always have to be material objects, they can simply be making the effort to spend quality time with a friend.
