It’s that time. If you are like me, you are wracking your brain for gift ideas. There are some people who are easy to buy for, and others I sit and think about for weeks and weeks and still draw a blank. I thought I would put together a list of items both large and small for the foodie in your life!
Let’s start with stocking stuffers!
- Bombas Socks — I am terribly obsessed with my Bombas and will tell everyone I know about them until all the feet in the world are as happy as mine are! Follow my link to get 25% off your first order! I love buying these socks and seeing all of the pairs being donated to people in need.
- Essential Oils — the bottles are small but powerful. I wouldn’t mind a few in my stocking . . . if you are buying for someone new to oils, try the beginner’s trio (lavender, lemon, and peppermint). For someone who loves to workout, a bottle of Deep Blue is a great gift idea.
- Rx bars/Lara bars — these are my favorite “emergency” bars that I always have around. My favorite Rx bars are the chocolate sea salt, and I love lemon Lara bars and the seasonal pumpkin pie one!
- Danish Dough Whisk — these whisks are amazing. I don’t know how I lived without one. They are perfect for batters and mixing up dough. Because of the design, the batter/dough doesn’t get all caught in a lump in the middle of your whisk! I love and use mine allll the time.
- Justin’s Nut Butter packs –– I always have one of these in my bag, along with my rx/lara bar. My favorite are the Chocolate Hazelnut, the Honey Peanut Butter, and the Maple Almond Butter. My kids love them too!
- Organifi Go! — these are little on the go packets of the greens powder I LOVE. They would make an excellent stocking stuffer (they’re on my list, for sure).
Wrap-em Up Gifts!
- Crio Bru — we all know I adore it and will sing its praises all day long. I just tried their new Peppermint flavor for the first time and fell in love with it. They’ve used peppermint oil and vanilla bean to flavor it. The Pumpkin Spice is also extra delicious! If you are getting it for someone to try for the first time, pick up a french press for them as well!
- Nutribullet — I have had mine for 2 years and it’s served me well. One day I will get my high powered super blender, but for someone looking for smoothies who can’t shell out $300+ for a blender, this is a great middle ground option!
- Spiralizer — this is one of those kitchen gadgets that is fun and helps give variety to your every day meals. I am not big on lots of gadgets, but I am extra glad that I got one of these. It was extremely helpful during my Whole 30 rounds. My kids love helping me make the curly veggies too!
- Lodge Cast Iron Skillet — I am pretty in love with all of my cast iron. I have a large skillet and a smaller 10″ one. I also have a griddle pan and some bread pans. I love them all and highly recommend everyone try cooking with one. There is nothing like the color and flavor you get from a well seasoned cast iron skillet!
- Mrs. Meyers Clean Day — I love this multi-surface spray, and I LOVE the seasonal Cranberry scent! Every night when my kids go to bed I spray the counters and table with this to clean up and it makes me feel like the house is clean.
- Juicer — this is an appliance I can’t live without. I highly recommend a masticating juicer because it makes a higher quality juice, is super easy to clean, and well worth the money.
- Citrus Juicer — I use my little citrus juicer every day. I love my lemon water in the morning or ginger lemon tea in the evening and it’s really handy to juice a lemon or two!
I would also recommend a few books that I love:
- Practical Paleo — the best book out there for getting started eating paleo or just understanding what we eat does to our body. It’s simple and straight-forward, not a lot of scientific jargon. I refer back to this over and over again.
- Nourishing Traditions — where it all began. Reading this book changed my outlook on food. FOREVER. It is so full of information. A traditional methods approach to eating. It just makes sense.
- The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up — another complete life-altering read. It’s simple, yet so mind blowing and effective. This is a great little easy read for someone who is overwhelmed!
- The Juicing Bible — full of information and facts on herbs, veggies, and fruits that is a great addition to any health nut’s library! Even if you don’t juice, the information is really valuable and I look at it often for certain properties of different foods.
Another idea is to look into local classes for someone you love. My husband bought me a “soap-making” class for my birthday last year, and it was so thoughtful and fun! I got to go alone, meet more people, and learn something new! Look into cooking/baking classes that might be offered near you! Seminars or other events that could give someone a day off on their own to learn and grow can be really great gifts!
There you have it! I am sure there are lots of other things I could add, but this gives you a few ideas. I would always add a bosch to that mix . . . because it’s my most-used and favorite appliance!
This week I am hosting a “Kelsey’s favorite things week of giveaways!” A lot of the things on this list will be given away to a lucky winner. Make sure to check back each day this week on instagram, facebook, and here on the blog to enter to win!
