The Wellness Girlie's Gift Guide

Gift giving season is upon us, and I don’t know about you, but this always causes me a little bit of anxiety. I ALWAYS struggle with trying to figure out what to get people, and also struggle with giving a wishlist of my own. None wants to give a gift that just gets shoved in the corner, or receive one where you have to do the same thing.


While I'm not a fan of the over-consumerism this time of year brings with it, I AM always a fan of giving heartfelt gifts. Especially ones that will actually better our lives and bring us more joy. So, whether you're on a mission to find that perfect present for your soul sister,

mom, or scouting for things to add to your own wish list (no judgment here, we're all in the same boat), I've got you covered! I’ve come up with some gift ideas for all of us wellness girlies out there that support small businesses and most importantly, are also good for our health (I've linked my top finds)! So let's dive in:



1. An Eco-friendly yoga mat: This yoga mat is eco-friendly AND won't hurt our hormones. I know it's on the pricier side, but unfortunately, many of the yoga mats out there, especially the cheaper ones, are made with toxic plastics and chemicals that can really hurt our hormones.


2. Hormone-Friendly Candles: Who DOESN’T love some delicious-smelling candles???? Unfortunately, the issue with most candles is that are made with fragrances and other ingredients that are horribly toxic for us. So, before you go buy a new candle for yourself, or anyone else, make sure you aren’t buying one that’s going to hurt the hormones! I love THIS ONE and THIS ONE.


3. Silk Pillowcase, Eye mask, and hair scrunchies: I LOVE a luxurious sleeping experience, and we all know that good sleep is essential for our health and well-being. I also used to have a ton of hair breakage, which was fixed by switching to this silk pillowcase and silk hair scrunchies. And a silk eye mask? This definitely ensures a luxurious night's sleep. This combo is a win/win/win!


4. Give the Gift of Gua Sha: I started Gua Sha’ing about a year ago and my only regret is that I didn’t know about it sooner. It’s amazing for lymphatic drainage, facial sculpting, and it just feels like I’m giving myself a facial every single day. A Gua Sha and a hormone-friendly face oil is the perfect little stocking stuffer combo!


5. Female Empowerment Books or a Journal: Any woman who is on a healing journey, a self-love journey, or a self-empowerment journey will always love a book in this genre. And I can't talk about journals, without mentioning the Menstrual Cycle Syncing Journal I have created. This journal isn't just about Cycle Syncing, it's meant to take you on a journey of self-discovery and deeper self-love. And this journal is meant to take you on a 90-day journey, so it's a gift that will keep giving!


6. Skincare Uplevel: I may start to sound like a broken record…but sooo many of the beauty products out there are packed full of ingredients that harm our hormones. So if you want to have glowy skin AND glowy hormones, there is no greater gift than some new skincare products! I am a HUGE fan of anything by Honest Beauty. It's the only skincare brand I use now.


7. A Meditation or “Work Out” App Subscription: One of my greatest discoveries this year was a pilates/yoga app called “Align”. The reason why I love this pilates app so much is because there is a Cycle Syncing workout program!!! Here is the website to learn more: ALIGN (alignapp.com).


8. New Cozies: I don’t even think I need to say more. This one is a bit of a splurge item, but anything by Barefoot Dreams is quite literally HEAVEN on your body. I’ve had my Barefoot Dreams sweater for years and wear it all winter long. Now I know this one isn’t made by a small business, but it’s just too good not to share.


9. Eco-Friendly Yoga clothes: Because what woman doesn't love some new comfy yoga pants??? The Girlfriend Collective is a small business and all of their products are sustainable and eco-friendly. Check out these yoga pants!

10. Oracle Cards or Affirmation Cards: I think we can all agree that having more positive affirmations and heart-centered guidance in our lives is never a bad thing. I have a few Oracle card decks that have literally been all over the world with me and have provided me with so much comfort over the years. This Rumi deck is so incredibly beautiful, as is this Rumi Deck. I have few others linked in my amazon storefront, so go check those out too!


11. Tea Sampler Set: Curate a selection of high-quality herbal teas or create a custom tea sampler featuring flavors known for their health benefits, like chamomile, ginger, or turmeric blends. You could also gift a new tea pot to make it a full set.


And that's a wrap on our wellness gift journey! I hope this list helps you on your gift-giving journey. I truly believe that the best gifts are the ones that make you go, "Ahh, that's exactly what my soul needed!" Whether you're passing these goodies to your BFF, your sis, or treating yourself (because, let's be real, self-love is where it's at), I hope these picks bring feelings of true joy and serve as reminders that gifts of self-care and wellness will never go out of style!


XOXO,

Jess
