11 Health Inspired Holiday Gift Ideas*

The Holiday Season is HERE!  Are you complete with your Holiday shopping?

If you’re still searching for some extra health inspired ideas for you or a loved one, I’ve recommend some of my favorite things for you to add to your holiday or life wish list or to surprise someone that has inspired you.

I’ve put them into my Naturalita SHINE healthy foundation categories to stick with the health theme!

{S} Self Love and Self Awareness

Adventures for Your Soul.  This book has been transformational for me.  In fact, I’m reading it with a group of other wellness entrepreneurs in our January 2016 book club (and we have a surprise guest).  I have bought MANY of these books as gifts for friends and family.  Shannon Kaiser is the author and is also a Life Coach.  She’s very well known in the wellness and self motivation world and this book is a great example of her passion and talent.  Have you read it?

Adventures For Your Soul


You are a Bad Ass.  I’ve listened to this book on Audible twice.  Then, I bought the book to actually read and write down her point blank “in your face” inspiration.  As you can see, my book is filled with post-its. It’s hands down a book that will move you forward and give you a little kick in the ass. Jen Sincero (author) is also a Life Coach. Would you read this?

You Are a Bad Ass

Plan a Date Night.  You can plan a date night for you and your partner, with a close girlfriend or just for YOU.  I love planning mini date nights (or day dates) with myself, the man and/or girlfriends.  It can be a date night IN or a date night out, just schedule it!  You can create a cute “coupon” or card for it, too! Planning love filled events is a way to fill up your self love cup.  Quality time is one of my main Love Languages.

{I} Inspiration and Adventure

MantrabandI love this company.  Personally, I have four Mantrabands, but I have gifted MANY more to friends, family, clients, customers, my team of coaches and myself! It’s hard to see in the picture, but each of these little bracelets has a short mantra on it.  There are many to choose from!  I challenge you to check out their website and choose one for you and a matching one for a friend.  I don’t wear a lot of jewelry, but I wear these daily to keep me grounded and anchored to following my dreams and plans.  They are adjustable, so one size fits all.

ZOZI Travel+Adventure If you are like me and love to travel, ZOZI is a great website filled with a lot of travel ideas, local deals on adventures and amazing adventure gear.  I love to hike and explore and somehow connected with them online and received a FREE t-shirt from them before my trip to Orcas Island.  Their motto is #GetOutThere and I felt called to connect with them more.  I hadn’t heard of them before October, so thought my fellow travel+adventure friends and followers would like to connect with them to plan some December and January SHINE + Adventures!

{N} Natural Nutrition

Practical Paleo – If you are new to eating healthy or curious about Paleo, I highly recommend this book! I am currently on week 7 of no sugar and I used this book to get ideas for my Paleo Autoimmune Digestive protocol to help with some personal health issues.  It has over 100 simple and healthy recipes; I have recommended it to probably 10+ people in the last month.  The author also provides shopping lists to help you shop for your healthy Paleo foods, too.   She makes it very practical!

Practical Paleo

ShakeologyI have been drinking Shakeology for almost 3 years and it has helped me out in so many ways, plus it tastes great!  My hair is growing faster and is healthy, my digestion is amazing, my skin is clearer and my cravings are gone!  While I feel you should get most of your nutrition from whole foods, Shakeology is a great way to get whole food nutrition in just one shake!  I usually drink it for breakfast or as a snack!

It comes in a both whey and vegan protein, contains over 70 natural whole food ingredients and superfoods.  If you are an ingredient detective, you can check out more information here to educate yourself.


{E} Exercise and Energy

Master’s Hammer and Chisel.  This is a 60 day fitness and nutrition program that you can do from home.  If you have heard of P90X, it’s from the  same company, Beachbody.  The creators and celebrity trainers of the programs The 21 Day Fix and Body Beast came together to create a program that can transform your body in as little as 30-40 minutes a day for 60 days.  It focuses on SSP – Stabilization, Strength and Power with a simple, yet effective nutrition plan that comes with portion control containers and a nutrition guide.  I just bought this workout program and LOVE it.  I’m on week two!  See my unboxing video here or below to see what is included.  More details and order link here.
BONUS:  If you order the challenge pack (that comes with the all natural superfood shake, Shakeology), I will add you to my private online accountability group starting in January.  It is on sale with free shipping through December 31, 2015. PLUS, Beachbody donates $5 for every package sold to help out a non-profit homeless organization. (This is for my personal customers only. Message me with questions.)

BOSU – Both Sides Utilized.  I have ALWAYS wanted one of these! I’ve used them at the gym to spice up my workout and add in an extra balance component. Now, I want one for my home gym! BOSU can help you build strength, improve your balance and flexibility and make your at home workouts more fun and engaging.  There are a lot of uses for the BOSU and it can help you get more creative in your workout regimen.  It might help make push-ups more fun!


Bowflex Adjustable WeightsThese have been the best addition to my home gym.  Not only do they save space, but they are quickly interchangeable and also allow you to challenge yourself more by adding weight and challenging yourself when progressing through a workout program.  I’ve seen and tried other ones out there and hands down, I recommend these.  I do have some single weights, but use my Bowflex Adjustable weights most of the time.  Plus, if you have Amazon Prime, you get free shipping!



What do you think of these health inspired gifts? Do any standout as a great idea for a loved one or for yourself?  Please let me know in the comments below!

Quality Time: Another thing I like to do is create memories or “save the date coupons” to spend quality time with a friend, family member or loved one.  You can create a memory filled holiday and do something fun in place of exchanging gifts (this is something I LOVE)!

If you have questions on any of these health inspired gifts, feel free to contact me here.

Create a LOVE and JOY filled Holiday Season!
