With Christmas just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to bring you a list of some of my favorite gift giving ideas. These are not only things that I love to give as gifts, but also use often in my own home.
For the Budding Chef: A microplane (1), a spice and condiment gift set from Vervacious, Madhur Jaffrey’s World Vegetarian cookbook and a bamboo cutting board set.
For your best friend: High quality dark chocolate (I love Theo’s fun flavors which you can find in Whole Foods); Wisdom Cards by Louise Hay (2) (inspirational affirmation cards that they can read every day) ; Tulsi Lemon Ginger Organic herbal tea and a nice handcrafted mug.
For the Nature Lover: A Membership to your local Audubon Society, a warm pair of wool mittens and a pair of sweet silver hammered bird earrings.
For the Eco-friendly Pal: A cute insulated lunch bag, reusable produce bags, glass water bottle (3) and Big Dipper Wax Works candle (4) (Enlightenmint is my fave).
For the Beauty-product Lover: Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara (this is the best mascara bar none that I have found – and bonus, no nasty harmful stuff you don’t want!), Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer (5) (my fave is Raisin), Non-toxic Piggy Paint nail polish (It’s not just for the kids!) and if you are feeling crafty, some homemade body butter (this is the one I use!) and a Yerba Prima Skin Brush (6) for dry brushing (see my post here on why I love to dry brush!).
I hope these gift ideas inspired you and that you have a wonderful holiday season.
Most importantly, A heartfelt thank you to everyone that has followed Compass Nutrition through this blog, on Facebook, and on Twitter. This has been a magical year and I am so blessed to have been able to share it with you!
