Healthy Living Gifts

If you’ve been following my Instagram stories, you know that I’ve been on a healthy living journey of exercise and fitness. These healthy living gifts are perfect for anyone that’s on that path!

CBD Living Products – Along with the workouts has come some muscle aches so I was grateful to try this pack of travel sized products from CBD Living.  The CBD Living Travel Bundle contains some of their most popular products, perfect for travel or for trying out the items before committing to a full size. Products are THC-free and is made in the USA, using only 100% organic hemp sourced from state-licensed farms in Oregon and Colorado. The CBD Living Freeze Roll-on is my favorite for muscle stiffness! 

Nomader Travel Water Bottle – Pack light with this compact Nomader Collapsible Water Bottle. BPA-free, this bottle is ideal for hiking, travel or the gym. I like that the bottle has a wide mouth opening to add ice. Once empty the bottle easily rolls up and can be stowed away in a compact space. I love that I can stuff this ultra-lightweight bottle in my backpack.

Self-Care Gifts for Women

After years of sacrificing all the things for my job and kids, I’m ready to take back some time for myself. These women’s self-care gifts are just the right thing for rejuvenation, relaxation and bringing joy back to her life!

FabFitFun – Earlier this year, I committed to more self care and FabFitFun was my first step. I adore receiving these seasonally curated boxes.

And as a Select Member, I get to choose most of the box picks. My winter box already arrived and I’m cuddled up and ready to enjoy all my self care treats! Receive $10 off your first FabFitFun box this winter using code FAB10! 

Books – When the news and social media gets to be overwhelming, there’s nothing better than escaping into a good read. Book Outlet has been my go-to for all reading material, with self-help, cookbooks and fictional titles that are the perfect gift for any woman. Be sure to sign up for the newsletter and receive notice on deeper discounts throughout the year.
Coloring Books – The gift of quiet time and mindless doodling can do wonders! A box of sharpened colored pencils and these printable Mindfulness Coloring Pages from Babies To Bookworms on Etsy and it’s the perfect 10 minute pause to relax and reconnect.

Stylish Gifts for Women

Clothes, jewelry and accessories are always among the top gifts for women. These select items are sure bets when it comes to stylish gifts for her.

StitchFix – Sign her up for this style subscription box. She can curate which pieces she’d like to receive, from handbags, sweaters, sneakers, and jeans. Arrange to have StitchFix boxes arrive as often as you wish with the easy ability to skip months. I’ve adored working with my StitchFix stylish to find amazing outfits. My closet is a happy place again! Sign up and receive a $25 credit off your first StitchFix order.

BZees – After receiving my first pair of BZees slip-on shoes this summer, I couldn’t wait to try them again. This pair of BZees Goodie Booties is absolutely the most comfy boots I’ve ever worn. Extremely lightweight with floating foam beds and “cloud technology”. Plus, they’re actually machine washable so they’ll always look new! (I’m wearing them in the above photo as well).
Knix – Known for their “period panties”, this brand now offers Knix Ultra-Soft Loungewear. From joggers to jammies, these stay-at-home cozy clothes will get her through the year. I’ve already added the modal sleep set to my shopping cart!
Uwila Warrior – Have her slip into something romantic under the Christmas tree! I received the Uwila Warrior Underwear Intervention Gift Box. This collection of four different pairs are 100% pure silk, seamless and extremely high quality. Unbelievably soft, these underpants visually disappear under clothing (even under your leggings – no panty lines!) Uwila Warrior panties have stylish and sexy cuts that are also very comfortable.

Workout Must-Have Gifts for Women

These exercise essentials will encourage and inspire her in her health journey with products that are not only functional but fun.

Sweat Mate water proof gym bag

Gaiam Muscle Roller – After the hard workouts, gently loosen the kinks with this Gaiam Restore Deep Tissue Massage Roller. We’ve tried many brands over the years and this roller works the best for gently and effectively working out muscle tension.

Prana Workout Wear – It’s amazing what the right workout wear will do for a woman. A great outfit will encourage her health journey, while properly supporting her figure. Prana yoga wear, tanks, support bras and joggers are not only beautifully made, they’re also comfortable and stylish.

Sweat Mate – This washable, reusable, waterproof stuff sack holds your sweaty, soiled workout clothes while keeping dampness and odors contained. The Sweat Mate is a great alternative to mingling sweaty clothes in your gym bag or using plastic bags to hold the wet items. I keep my Sweat Mate in my closet to hold damp gym clothes until I can get them into the laundry. 

Eat, Drink & Be Merry

These gifts for women will go a long way towards lifting spirits.

InBooze – Cheers to all the special celebrations with InBooze! These cocktail infusion kits are added to your alcohol for unique drinks at home. Each pouch is filled with dehydrated fruits, veggies, spices and herbs to infuse enough alcohol for 8-10 cocktails. Lots of sugar free options! The Sangria I tried this summer was awesome and next I’ll be going with Moscow Mules.

Entertaining Snack Board – The grazing board is all the rage right now. And while we might not be party hosting this season, a classic Charcuterie Board in an interesting style like this beauty from Uncommon Goods will serve you and your guests well for years to come. We have weekly nosh-sessions with the kids using a board like this!

Universal Yums –  A gift for the woman who loves to snack and wishes she could be traveling the world! Universal Yums has been one of the best things we’ve experienced as a family this year. I sent this box of international snacks and sweets to my sister-in-law this past holiday season. She might not be leaving home this holiday but she can still travel virtually through food!

Undercover Mama – When I was nursing my last baby, I discovered Undercover Mama. These unique tanks connect to a nursing bra. They are worn under your tees to cover up your sides and minimize the amount of exposed skin. Plus these strapless tanks turn any of your regular shirts into nursing shirts.
I found that wearing the Undercover Mama made me more comfortable about breastfeeding in public and I was able to avoid the chill each time I lifted my top!

Photo Albums and Wall Art – New moms want to document the precious moments. But it needs to be a quick process and it needs to be easy! Don’t let those photos just sit in your camera.
