Awesome Fitness and Workout Gift Ideas

  • Eco-Friendly Yoga Mat
    Eco-Friendly Yoga Mat

    Though there is no doubt your yogi friends would love finding a beautiful new yoga mat under the tree, even asana-avoiding fitness fans would be stoked to get a Jade Yoga Mat.


    Made of high-quality sustainable rubber (not synthetic plastics), these eco-friendly mats are durable and offer a wonderful non-slip surface for yoga, Pilates or simple stretching routines. Plus, Jade Yoga plants a tree for each mat purchased! Win-win for your health and the health of the planet!

Book Gift Ideas: Most Popular Books on Healthy Living

  • The Little Book of Hygge The Danish Way to Live Well
    The Little Book of Hygge

    Ever wondered why the Danes are the happiest people in the world?  According to Meik Wiking, the CEO of The Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, it just might be because of hygge -- the Danish concept of enjoying (and creating) comfort, coziness and simple pleasures in everyday life.


    A compact little book, The Little Book of Hygge explores the basics of how the Danes think of hygge and how you can hygge-fy your life, even if you don’t call Denmark home!

    This great gift option for those interested in minimalism, philosophy, happiness research or world cultures!

Cool Technology Gift Ideas

  • Reusable Smart Notebook
    Reusable Smart Notebook

    Know someone whose job or school forces them to run through stack after stack of tree-destroying paper notebooks?  Why not get them a reusable notebook, like this one from Rocketbook, instead?


    It lets them write and draw just like they would in a paper notebook.  But when they’re done, the notebook blasts everything straight to their Google Drive, Dropbox, OneNote, Box, Slack, iCloud or email so they can access it anywhere!  Less paper, more organized -- sounds like a win-win to us!

Environmentally-Conscious Clothing Gift Ideas

  • Natural Wooden Watch for Men and Women

    Watches are statement pieces and if you know someone who wants to say, “green living is my priority!” this is the watch for them!  The band is handmade from natural bamboo.  It is environmentally friendly, sustainably produced and completely non-toxic.

Essential Oil and Aromatherapy Gift Ideas

  • Essential Oil Starter Kit
    Essential Oil Starter Kit

    Odds are someone on your list has a hankering to give essential oils and aromatherapy a go!  Why not give them a hand by buying them an essential oil starter kit with a handful of small bottles of a variety of oils?

    There are tons of options out there and many of them are excellent but we, personally, recommend the 6-pack starter kit from Plant Therapy. Their oils are not only organic and top quality, but their business is family run and dedicated to sustainable production methods and giving back to their community.

Green Kitchen Gift Ideas

  • Reusable Shopping Bag
    A Reusable Shopping Bag

    Cute, practical, eco-friendly, printed nylon reusable shopping bags are an awesome shopping staple everyone should have!  If you know someone on your list doesn't, pick them up one (or more) of these adorable choices from BAGGU.  (We’re serious fans of the lemon print, but there are dozens of others to choose from, too!)

Healthier Home Gift Ideas

  • Bamboo Toothbrush
    Eco-Friendly Toothbrush

    Toothbrushes might seem like a lame gift, but those with a passion for green living will love these bamboo-based toothbrushes from Brush with Bamboo.  They are sustainably produced and free of the additives and chemicals found in plastic toothbrushes.

Home Spa Gift Ideas

  • Natural Body Wash
    Natural Body Wash

    A January full of luxurious, heavenly- and summery-scented showers sounds like a dream gift to us!

    Make it a reality with this delectable sweet orange vanilla body wash from The Honest Company.  Not only does it smell absolutely amazing, but the ingredients are also 100% natural, organic, hypoallergenic and cruelty-free!

Innovative Kitchen Gadget Gift Ideas

  • Affordable Chef Knife
    Affordable Chef's Knife

    No chef’s kitchen (even an amateur chef's kitchen) is complete without a giant set of high-quality knives!

    This one is professional grade and, good news for you, totally affordable!

Self-Care and Stress-Relief Gift Ideas

  • Self Myofascial Release Tools
    Self Myofascial Release Tool

    Much less socially risky than massage oil but just as muscle-relaxing, a myofascial release tool is a great gift for anyone that struggles with backaches or regular post-workout muscle soreness.

    Like the foam rollers which were all the rage this year, myofascial release tools help work out tight knots and in muscles but they offer a more concentrated and effective pressure.

    We recommend the Mobility Orb from Pro Tech Athletics!

DIY Christmas Gift Ideas

  • DIY Candles
    DIY Candle

    Candles are a wonderful winter-weather pick me up and an awesome, if simple, stocking stuffer idea!  Want to do something a little bit more unique than picking up that amazingly scented Bed, Bath & Beyond candle and slipping it a stocking, though?  Try making a couple of candles for them yourself!

    Here is an awesome guide for DIY candles in, above all things, stunning recycled teacups, to help you get started!  (Oh! And don’t forget you can add any essential oils you want to make your adorable DIY candle an aromatherapy treat, as well!)



Unique Experience Gift Certificate Ideas

  • Book a Spa Day
    Book a Spa Day

    Holiday presents don’t have to be physical gifts!  They can also be experiences and promises to spend time together!

    One idea we love is booking a spa day for you and a friend or love one to just relax be pampered, and leave the stresses of everyday life behind you!

    Book a local spa you both like or check this list to see any of the best spas in the country are near you.  (If not, you could always make the spa day a road trip!)

    Prices will vary by spa, travel distance and length of stay.


Last Minute Healthy Gift Ideas 

  • Online Fitness Class Subscription

    If you need an awesome gift for a fit friend in a hurry, you could create an account for them on a website that offers full-length workout class videos and/or workout programs for subscribers.
