Shine this holiday season with gifts that keep giving
Do you despise last-minute rushes to the mall for gifts? Or maybe the thought of buying gifts en masse makes you feel like you’re doing it just for the sake of it. Which is kind of great since these celebrations are not just about gifts. But since we will be gift-giving to our loved ones, let’s be sure to make the gifts pleasantly surprising and purposeful. You wouldn’t want your gift to be meaningless, easily returned to the store the next day or re-gifted. That's why we propose some simple ideas with a purpose that will show those you love how special they are to you.
Massage away the stress
There are hundreds of ways to give yourself a massage, but extra pampering ‘hands’ always helps. We suggest a portable, pillow-style massage device. They are easy to use and some even have the option of heating up to provide a more relaxing effect. They are perfect for reducing stress and tension in the neck and shoulders. Another option is a tool for head massages – it looks like an octopus with many tentacles. They come in plastic or silicone and can be easily carried in a purse or sports bag. Great gift for either men or women alike.
Make your massage gift complete with an Enhance Your Sleep/Manage Stress Health Pack, which includes Sleep Formula, Passionflower Tea, and Ashwagandha. The perfect way to help your loved one’s better cope with difficult and tiring days, from the inside out.
A little bit of warmth
With so many cold days and nights, who wouldn't want some extra heat to feel more comfortable? Especially women, who suffer more from freezing temperatures on their day of the month, which also causes pain and sensitivity. One gift that will surely make them smile is a thermal cushion that can be placed on the lower back, abdomen, or even on the feet! They come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Among the most popular this year are ones that look like stuffed animals, like a llama for example. This is an inexpensive gift that will receive a lot of good use.
Complete this gift with Super Slim Café to help them warm up with thermogenic ingredients like green tea, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, Colombian coffee, and cocoa. Perfect to brave the cold.
We love being on the side of the environment and promoting awareness for the planet. If you have loved ones who would be happy to join the trend, try a kit for creating small gardens and orchards. If they live in an apartment, try an aromatic herb growing kit? It will include the pot, seeds, and basic instructions to help them grow herbs on the patio, balcony, or inside in front of a window. All you need is a little motivation, water, and elbow grease!
Enhance this gift with a Conquer Your Inflammation Health Pack to combat muscle and joint stiffness during those cold days.
Encourage healthier living
When we focus on a healthy lifestyle, we naturally want everyone to join in as well. However, that doesn't always happen. Instead of giving a soapbox speech during the holidays, try a more subtle approach. Put together a health package that includes the basics for beginners to exercise, such as a yoga mat, gloves, and resistance bands (1). Add a gift card with an invitation to a shared workout, with time and place. And for the icing on the cake, include our Kickstart Your Energy Health Pack featuring maca, vitamin B12, and ginseng.
Make nutrition easy
When making lifestyle changes, getting the ball rolling isn't easy. Some obstacles to healthy eating include anxiety, bad habits, boredom, or lack of time (2). We can help others by teaching them to make better choices. For example, give a rechargeable, portable blender so that they can make healthy smoothies as a snack. Top it off with Protein Powder and Skinny Yummy Gummies to provide fiber and promote feeling fuller longer.
Thoughtful, personalized gifts like these will touch anyone's heart. The best gift is still our time and affection, so go the extra mile for your loved ones’ wellbeing and give a gift that goes beyond simple tradition.
Let's be healthier together.
