As the holidays draw near, it’s time to focus more on the ones we love. And while showing love goes beyond gift-giving, a thoughtful present certainly never hurt anyone. ☺

To help spark your imagination and make holiday shopping a little easier, we rounded up our top gift picks for the wellness-loving gal.

1. For the athlete: bkr glass water bottle with cleaning brush, $28-60 and $8

Glass is typically the safest material to drink from because it doesn’t leach harmful chemicals into the water. That’s why we recommend hydrating with this luxe glass water bottle.

Both the bottle and sleeve are designed to prevent breakage, and are super easy to clean with the cleaning brush. We love the 1 liter size because it has a larger neck, making it easier to fill up.

After seeing or sipping once, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll want to buy a bkr water bottle in every color. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

2. For the sustainability enthusiast: 18-piece Glasslock food storage set, $39.99

Help reduce plastic use with a set of these oven-safe glass food containers. They’re safer than plastic to store prepped food and leftovers, and can be used to take food to the office.

We picked this set because it mostly includes square and rectangular-shaped containers, which are usually more space efficient than round ones.

3. For the yoga lover: sustainable Manduka yoga mat, $68-78

Rolling out a yoga mat before practice is a special feeling. Make it even more meaningful with a mat that’s crafted with sustainability in mind. This Manduka mat is made from safe materials and non-Amazonian rubber. It’s built with love and built to last — but it’s also biodegradable when it’s time for a new one.  

4. For the self-care queen: EMU Australia Mayberry Slipper, $60

Pair these lovely slippers with a luxurious face mask and treat your loved one to a little relaxation. The slippers come in several fabulous neutral colors, but we’re especially loving the pink. Note: they run small so size up!

5. For the organized pal: Lululemon pouch, $28

This light pink, deep red, or floral printed Lululemon pouch is perfect for storing keys, a wallet, cosmetics, lip  balm, hair ties, and other essentials. It’s small enough to throw in your purse, keep at your desk, or take on a trip.  

6. For the chef: FINEX non-toxic cookware, $99 and up

Bad news first: conventional cookware can leave harmful residue in food. Good news is that alternatives do exist! Say hello to FINEX – raw cast iron cookware free of harmful chemicals and toxins. These are investment pieces intended to last generations, and are handmade by a small team in Portland, Oregon.

7. Last but not least, for the healthy-living devotee: NakedPoppy gift card, amount of your choice

Give the gift of clean beauty! We’re obviously biased – but NakedPoppy was specifically created for the health-focused woman who wants to buy clean, vetted makeup quickly.

With a gift certificate, your friend or loved one can take the fun 3-minute quiz on, get matched with clean makeup tailored to her coloring and preferences in real-time, and pick which items she wants!

Have a healthy, happy holiday season!
