Whole & Holistic Gift Guide 2017
So here you are, still searching for that perfect gift for that special someone. They are a smart, trendy, health conscious, bad ass man/woman and you want the gift to reflect that…. Well don’t you worry, here at whole and holistic, we are super wise and got your back!
To help them zen: Research shows that meditation offers not only calm, but can help with anxiety, depression, cancer, chronic pain, asthma, heart disease and high blood pressure (!). Consider purchasing a subscription to a meditation app, such a calm, or a pretty mediation pillow.
For the foodie: we all know the saying, "you are what you eat"! And having a whole foods diet is one of the best ways we can benefit our bodies. Whole foods can help with digestion, give us more energy and are jam packed with vitamins and minerals. Consider a cookbook, such as Oh She Glows, or a crock pot (bone broth anyone?). Another obsession of ours is a food spiralizer which is the perfect and easy way to incorporate vegetable goodness into your meals.
To increase precious 'me time': Self-care is one of the most important aspects of health. Create a DIY self-care kit to really show them how much you appreciate them. Epsom salts, which are high in magnesium, help relax tight muscles; skin brushing helps gently detoxify and promotes lymphatic drainage; and a new journal can help spark some much needed inner reflection.
For the plant lover: I could go on about plants forever, but Ill keep it short. Think herbal teas (any kind will soothe the soul), mushroom coffee (great for an added boost), or aromatherapy jewelry.
