The holidays are practically here which means it’s time to start holiday gift buying! Here are some of my favorite health-related things, which would make fab gifts for your girlfriends. Time to shop!
An enameled cast-iron Dutch Oven is my all-time favorite kitchen essential. It is extremely versatile and the perfect kitchen tool for braising meat, cooking stews, soups, beans, and sauces. It can even be used to bake bread, such as a sourdough round. The industry gold standard is Le Creuset, but you can also buy quality products from less expensive companies, such as Lodge.
A multi-use electric pressure cooker that makes cooking for the busy momma or professional a breeze. The multi-cooker does the job of a slow cooker, electric pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, sauté/browning pan, and warming pot in a fraction of the time with little cleanup.
This high-performance blender makes perfect smoothies, hot soups, hummus, sauces, salad dressings and nut butters. While it is a more expensive blender, my original one still works after nearly a decade. The Nutribullet is a comparable blender at a lower price point.
A cooking class is perfect for the blossoming chef (think newlywed) or home kitchen pro. Chicago’s The Chopping Block is where I learned to cook and the biggest recreational cooking school in the country. Sur La Table also has a variety of cooking classes in locations nationwide.
Perfect for smoothies and protein shakes on the go whether you’re blending at home or on the road. They come in fun colors and different sizes. I always travel with one and use it to combine my protein powder, greens and fiber supplement.
These water bottles contain natural crystals that encourage rejuvenation of the body and mind. Each crystal has a different healing property.
The perfect gift for the Pilates or fitness enthusiast. The system was designed to take machine Pilates out of the studio and make it accessible for your home gym. There are also live and on-demand classes available.
This device is perfect for the family member or friend who wants to get healthy in the New Year. Tracking your steps and sleep is by far the easiest way to get started. The device also pairs with a smartphone app that can be used as a goal and food tracker.
These leggings are smoking hot. They are extremely slimming and come in fabulous colors. They are also perfect for the friend or family member who loves to wear fitness attire outside the gym.
This yoga clothing company is all about setting a positive mindset. I love the shirts with positive words and phrases.
These are by far my favorite “bath bombs.” Each herbal formula is crafted with a wellness element in mind, whether its Detox, Sleep, Less Stress, Cold & Sinus, Energy or Muscle Ache.
Wellness Gift Certificate
Never underestimate the power of a thoughtful gift certificate. Your massage loving friend will appreciate the excuse to sneak away to a day spa. If you have a friend that frequents a workout class, like Soul Cycle or Orange Theory, gift him or her class sessions. A Master Class gift certificate is perfect for your friend who loves to learn.
