My Top 5 Healthy Holiday Gift Guide for That Special Someone

A couple wrapping holiday gifts under the tree

It took me less than one minute to prepare my Top 5 Healthy Holiday Gift Guide this year.

Unique AND Healthy gift ideas have been hard to come by in the past and I have a lot of patients asking me what they should be buying for their loved ones this year. As a doctor, it is important to me that the items I recommend are going to transform your home into a healing sanctuary. Luckily there are tons of amazing companies that are doing it SO right in 2020.

SO, let’s dive into why I created my Top 5 Healthy Holiday Gift Guide!

When your loved ones are struggling with their health, the holidays can be one of the most difficult times of the year. Coming up with special gift ideas year after year is tough enough! It is even more difficult when you want to make sure that anything you buy isn’t going to aggravate a condition, contribute to bad habits or even worse…be boring!

Over the past few years I have discovered tons of healthy, exciting holiday gifts! These presents are the gifts that keeps on giving. I’ve made sure to include options at different price points. These gifts will give you exactly the response you are looking for from the people you love, while improving their health.

My Top 5 Healthy Holidays Gift Guide 

Beekeepers Naturals ThroatSpray
BEEKEEPERS NATURALS

I love this spray! It’s filled with propolis and buckwheat honey and I love the kids spray even more! It is protecting and supportive of the immune system. This company has a bunch of products that everyone in my family truly loves, and tons of packaged options for multiple stocking stuffers or a whole kit for that special someone. Honestly, tons of options here for everybody!

Their cacao honey is body nourishing and healthy habit forming. Add a delicious dairy alternative to a tsp of this and you will be drinking the BEST HOT CACAO OF 2020 on a beautiful holiday morning with the whole family!

The Raw Bee Pollen is also one of our favourites to sprinkle into smoothie bowls, kombucha and more! Visit the BeeKeepers for more information.

THE LOVE TUNER

I was introduced to this product by a colleague of mine. This is a thoughtful option for anyone who is looking to relax and decrease their stress. It is like a whistle that you blow and the tone of the GHZ is known as the Love Frequency. This breathing meditation device that calms the nervous system and supports being in a parasympathetic state.

The muse headband
MUSE – THE BRAIN SENSING HEADBAND

This came out a couple of years ago and it is a biofeedback headband that you put on your head and it actually senses brainwaves, allowing you to learn to get better at meditation. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for other ways to destress and get into that relaxed state. Maybe meditation apps normally doesn’t work for them, or it takes too much time out of their day. The muse offers tons of different types and lengths of meditation. As you listen to your chosen soundtrack, the muse will offer various breathing techniques or visualizations to get you into that parasympathetic, healing state.

The Oura Ring
THE OURA RING

One of my absolute favourite biohacking purchases I made three years ago is this ring! The inside of the ring has little sensors that track biomarkers. For those of you sports enthusiasts, you may recall the NBA bubble used this tracker for a safe reopening and ended up using it as a tool to improve their game. This ring tracks heart rate variability, deep and REM sleep, average body temperature…the information it can give you is pretty amazing. For example, if you’re getting sleep, is it restful? Not only will this help level up anyone’s health, it is a great preventive tool as well.

BOOKS LIKE THE SUPERFOOD ALCHEMY COOKBOOK

This is an infrared sauna…that is portable! For those of you who have looked at big wooden saunas, you know they are quite pricey. This sauna can be folded up and put away which is great for anyone who doesn’t have the room for a large sauna, like if you live in a small condo space. This sauna also heats up quickly, offers the highest absorbable far infrared of any other on the market and less EMF near or around the body than other saunas. The far infrared rays are incredible for sweating, supportive of healing, detoxifying and some research shows it can also be good for weight loss as well. This is the healing gift that really does keep on giving!

My Top 5 Healthy Holidays Gift Guide For Kids

Holiday gifts under a christmas tree

Welcome to my FIRST Top 5 Healthy Holidays Gift Guide for Kids!

Most of my parents are worried that they have NO IDEAS when it comes to unique and healthy holiday gifts for their kids. I have been asked for gift giving advice for years because the the gifts many kids ask for encourage or increase unhealthy habits. This is especially concerning if a family who is already struggling with health issues.

I know sometimes for parents it feels hard getting kids to adopt healthy habits at all! It is a common misconception that kids don’t like healthy but your kids will LOVE the items I include in my TOP 5 healthy holidays gift guide for kids.

The good news is that patients I see in my practice with the best outcomes are kids! 

Kids LOVE adopting healthy habits and here is why. Firstly, they don’t have habits that have solidified over decades. Secondly, kids are smart. Once they start to feel better, they learn what works for them and stick to it. Finally, kids have GREAT instincts. When a kid gets sick, they want to slow down and heal. Kids are incredibly resilient and it is important to equip them with good health early on in life.

As a Mom of three, I know how important it feels to ‘get this right’…and I can’t wait to share these great ideas with you! Unique and healthy holiday gifts should be fun and exciting for both you and your kids!

The Benefits of Blue Blocking Glasses
BLUE BLOCKING GLASSES

The kid that loves the computer/gaming/ watching TV/their phone: Let’s face the fact that our kids are on electronics this year more than ever before. AND they love being on their electronics. If we can can buy them something that will give them a little bit more time playing on the computer, a little closer to bedtime in the healthiest way, YOU can finally fall asleep satisfied at night.The benefits of blue blocking glasses are well known and by removing the blue light emitted by screens during those pre-bedtime hours, you can protect the body and the brain from the stimulation caused by blue light. Blue light is known to affect the pineal gland. This is the gland that secretes melatonin, the hormone that helps us to fall asleep.

If you want your kids to have better sleep cycles also known as their circadian rhythm, get them the gift of these glasses! Not all brands are created equal. Rest assured that Swanwick is one of my go-to brands.

Beekeepers Naturals Cacao Superfood Honey
BEEKEEPERS NATURALS

The kid that loves SWEET TREATS: This amazing cacao superfood honey is a mix of raw wildflower honey and cacao which has been shown to contain flavonoids that help your body function and protect against everyday toxins and stressors. This product is great for boosting immune function and supporting overall immunity. It isn’t the only amazing products from Beekeepers Naturals either.

One of the leading causes of chronic illness is inflammation. If we can give our loved ones something delicious that will decrease inflammation, it is a win win!

Living Libations Blush
Living Libations

The kid that you find wearing your makeup (whether you like it or not): It feels like only yesterday that I found my expensive all-natural lipstick in my 7 year old daughter’s purse…because it was yesterday. Kids get TONS of cheap, toxic makeup in gifts and it is time to make a change. There are tons of brands doing clean makeup so it is important to do your research and invest in something healthy (and special) for any child who is going to get their hands on some less-healthy version anyway!

This Maiden Fern Blushing Balm is the perfect 2 in 1 for any child that is rushing into makeup like a teenager. Living Libations is one of my favourite essential oil companies and offers beautiful natural and lovingly made products. This is a healthy and safe way to introduce any child to makeup (if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em).

A himalayan salt lamp
HIMALAYAN SALT LAMP

The kid who likes their peaceful sanctuary: Looking for a calming night light for your kids room? Mood lighting is so important for setting a peaceful atmosphere. There is also emerging evidence that these lamps can reduce electrical pollution! This lamp is known for releasing negative ions into the environment, working as an air purifier. The calming light is an additional benefit and is a great way to encourage proper circadian rhythm.
