As Christmas draws closer, our thoughts are turning to gifts. What can we get auntie Joan? What does Tom want this year? Is Marie still seeing Sam and do I need to get him something? It can all be rather stressful.
We wanted to ease at least some of this stress by putting together a few ideas for the person in your life who shares your passion for health and well-being.
If they love a herbal tea, relish yoga class and are constantly chatting about the benefits of organic skincare, you’ve come to the right place.
Without further a-do, here is our mini gift guide:
1. Make your own caffeine free tea (£31)
If you know someone who’s always recommending herbal teas, this ‘make your own’ kit will make their day. The kit contains six flavours to play with, including peppermint and roobios, and has recipe cards to inspire.
2. The Little Book of Mindfulness (£5.99)
For anyone interested in mindfulness, this book is a great starting point. Written by Tiddy Rowan (a mindfulness practitioner of over 30 years), the book contains over 150 tips, techniques and meditations to help you become more aware and more mindful.
3. A holistic therapy session
Anyone interested in health and wellness should explore the world of holistic and complementary therapy. Why not gift your friend one session of a therapy you think will speak to them? This could be Reiki, reflexology or even a pampering massage. We don’t always take the time we need to look after ourselves, so a gentle nudge may be required.
4. Personalised yoga harmony bracelet (£29)
Available in turquoise, mother of pearl, moonstone, green aventurine, amethyst and rose quartz, this pretty bracelet can be engraved to make it extra special. You can also choose yoga symbol charms depending on their meaning. A beautiful and thoughtful present.
5. Therapeutic Himalayan salt lamp (£19.91)
Believed to help reduce harmful positive ions or ‘electronic smog’, these salt lamps add negatively charged ions to the air. Other places with high quantities of negative ions include by the sea and by waterfalls. Get one for your techy friend to help them digitally detox!
6. Build your own eco luxe pamper gift (£25)
Containing organic and natural beauty products like sweet almond and shea sugar scrub and infused roll-on oils for pulse-points, you can choose exactly what goes into this bespoke hamper. What we especially love about this gift, is that 10% of the company’s profits go to animal rescue and environmental charities – so it really is the gift that keeps on giving!
