Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018

I can’t believe it’s already that time of year again – HOLIDAY SHOPPING! There’s nothing quite as satisfying as giving someone a present they truly love. Just like the last few years, this year I’m creating a few guides to help you complete (or start!) your holiday shopping for loved ones. First up, I’m focusing on what to get any women in your life – friend, sister, mother, girlfriend, daughter, and so on. Whoever she is, here are a few options she might love!

Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018

  • Beautycounter Best of Beauty – This set comes with Beautycounter’s best-selling products – the Cleansing Balm, Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion, No. 1 Brightening Facial Oil, and No. 3 Balancing Facial Mask. All of these are MUST-HAVES in my personal collection! This is a foolproof option if you want to gift incredible skincare products that you know she’ll love, and it’s perfect for women of any age with any skin type. You’ve got all of your bases covered – the Cleansing Balm to remove makeup, wash the face, and hydrate the skin; the Adaptive Moisture Lotion to act as a moisturizer for any skin type; the Brightening Facial Oil to balance out the oils in the skin and diminish any red marks or signs of aging; and the Balancing Mask to clear out blackheads, clogged pores, and any pesky zits. Plus, if she hasn’t switched over to safer skincare yet, this is the perfect time to help her do just that! A lot of women feel guilty buying nice skincare for themselves, so the holidays are the perfect time to help ya girl out! Plus, if someone is interested in trying Beautycounter for the first time, this collection is an excellent representation of the line.Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • Beautycounter Clean Beauty Go-To’s – This set come with the Countercontrol Cleanser, SOS Spot treatment, Lengthening Mascara, and Mini Lip Gloss. This set is great for teens, college students, anyone struggling with acne, or any beauty minimalists! The Countercontrol cleanser is a gel cleanser that helps to prevent acne but is great for any skin type, the spot treatment is a MUST for every woman to have in her skincare arsenal in case she gets a blemish, and the lengthening mascara and lip gloss are two staples in any woman’s beauty routine (if she’s a minimalist, that’s truly all she’ll need)! Plus, again – you’re helping her switch to safer products.Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • Alitura Naturals Clay Mask – This mask is unlike anything else I’ve ever tried, and it is HIGHLY effective. It’s not one of those masks that just smells good but doesn’t actually do anything – it changes your skin. The Alitura Clay Mask helps to exfoliate dead skin, reduce the look of pores, stimulate blood flow, and stimulate the growth of new skin cells. The clay draws out impurities and helps to create that much wanted “glow.” It’s incredible for anyone looking to reduce the appearance of scars, red marks, fine lines, wrinkles, or acne! Mix it with apple cider vinegar for a very potent treatment mask, or with water for something a bit less intense. This mask has changed my skin, and it’s the perfect gift for any woman looking for real results!Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • Clearstem Skincare – Another product that every person needs in their skincare arsenal. Even though this is in my gift guide “for her,” it’s a great product for men as well. This product helps to prevent and eliminate acne, scars, red marks, fine lines, wrinkles, and any other signs of aging. It’s a light serum that soaks quickly into the skin, provides hydration while actually decreasing any oiliness, and can be used under makeup and other skincare products! I use this product every single day and love it because you’ll see immediate results (your skin will never be softer or more hydrated), as well as long term results as it helps to promote the growth of new collagen and eliminate marks and blemishes. I’ve gotten so much feedback from people saying that this product has completely transformed their skin (often in just a week!), and I’ve had this experience as well. Clearstem is great for all skin types and people of all ages. You can use my discount code “wellness” for $15 off!Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • The Spa Kit from Primally Pure – This set comes with a dry brush, Primally Pure body oil, Primally Pure sea soak, and Primally Pure flower bath all in an organic bag. This set  is exactly what every woman needs to have a relaxing spa night in and provides all the tools she needs to detox and soften her skin! Dry brushing helps stimulate the lymphatic system and exfoliate the skin, the bath soak will help to soothe muscles and add minerals back into the skin, and the body oil will help to moisturize and hydrate your body! All Primally Pure products are nontoxic and sourced from the highest quality ingredients.Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • Beautycounter Necessary Neutrals Palette – If you have a makeup junkie in your life who’s looking for the ultimate eyeshadow palette, this is it! This palette comes with 18 long-lasting shades, a removable mirror, and a double-sided eyeshadow brush. The shades are pigmented, buttery, and don’t need a primer to last all day and all night. This would be my dream gift, if I didn’t already have it! This is truly the only eyeshadow palette anyone ever needs, and it will last forever. You can easily create a ton of different daytime or nighttime looks, and the shades will go with any skin tone. It reminds me of my old Lorac 3 palette, except this one is nontoxic and the shades last even longer.Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • Luxie Beauty Complete Face Set – It’s amazing how a set of high-quality brushes can completely transform the way your makeup looks on your skin. Honestly, sometimes I feel like it’s not even worth it to buy good makeup if you don’t have good brushes to properly apply it! This set comes with all of the essential brushes any woman would need to apply face makeup and eye makeup, and the brushes are all vegan and cruelty free. They’re very high-quality, so this set will last years, if not forever.Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • Energy Muse Crystal Starter Set – This is the perfect kit to help anyone get started with crystals, or even to add to someone’s collection if they already use crystals. This set includes 10 crystals, and each will help enhance a different part of your life – wealth, love, cleansing, focus, relaxation, protection, health, and more. It also comes with a sage stick to cleanse the crystals and a dish to store them in. The crystals inside include Black Tourmaline, Shungite, Carnelian, Pyrite, Rose Quartz, Aventurine, Blue Apatite, Amethyst, Selenite, and Clear Quartz! If you don’t know much about crystals, this is the perfect way to start. Crystals are an easy, effective way to start shifting the energy in anyone’s life in a more positive direction!Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • Tarot Card Set – A Tarot deck is fun for anyone, whether or not they take it seriously. Personally, I think the Tarot deck is a great way to get people to start looking at their lives in a new way, think about what they want in the future, and help them gain clarity on past, present, and future situations. The Tarot deck doesn’t “tell the future,” but it can help shed light on areas of your life you might be confused about, just by helping you think about them in a different way.Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • Essential Oils – The gift of essential oils is truly the gift that keeps on giving! You can either gift a doTERRA membership (25% off of all doTERRA oils for the year!), or you can gift particular essential oils that you think the woman in mind would love! Some of my favorite essential oils to gift other women are Clary Calm (our women’s blend that helps regulate hormones and mood, and manage menstrual symptoms), Rose (great as a perfume, helps with any skin irritations / blemishes, uplifts the mood), Jasmine (also great as a perfume, uplifting, combats skin imperfections), Ylang Ylang (provides antioxidant support, great perfume, reduces stress levels, promotes appearance of skin and hair), and Balance (promotes relaxation and grounding). The Beginner’s Trio Kit is also a great place for anyone to start because it contains three of the most versatile oils – Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint! My top recommendation, though, is to pick an oil that reminds you of the person you’re getting the gift for!Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • Essential Oils Diffuser – doTERRA’s Aroma Lite Diffuser is my favorite diffuser because it covers a wide square footage, runs for up to 8 hours, has an optional night light, and will help purify and humidify the air! Oftentimes people don’t know where to start when they first begin using essential oils, so gifting someone a diffuser makes the process much easier for them because they can immediately start diffusing their oils without really “figuring anything out.” Everyone likes their home to smell nice! Not all diffusers are the same, though, which is why it’s important to get one that’s of the highest quality so that it will last a long time and actually diffuse the oils throughout the room!Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • Loose Leaf Tea & Infuser – Every woman could use a new tea to cozy up with, ya know?! Some of my favorite loose leaf teas are from Luna Tea, Co., a local shop in the area where some of my family lives. All of the teas are custom, organic blends that taste delicious – some of my favorites are Red Chai and the Anniversary Blend! I also recommend getting an infuser to go along with the loose leaf tea so it can be brewed easily. Luna also has adorable infusers with crystals and dream catchers on them, which I love.Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • Nontoxic Yoga Mat – The health conscious yogi in your life will definitely appreciate this mat! Most mats are filled with toxic chemicals, but this mat is free of latex, BPA, PVC, lead, phthalates, dioxins, and other toxic chemicals. It’s made from biodegradable material, and since there are no harmful chemicals there’s no PVC off-gassing! This might just be the mat that your yogi friend needs, even if she doesn’t yet know it!
  • Alo Moves Subscription – This subscription gives you access to a ton of online yoga videos so that you can do yoga from home with an expert instructor! From someone who has gone the route of watching yoga videos for free on YouTube, trust me when I tell you that those videos quickly run out, and most aren’t very high-quality. This is a great way to encourage someone to start incorporating yoga into their routine, or to enhance their practice!Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • Diptyque Candle – These are some of my favorite luxury candles. Personally, my favorite scents are Cypress and Roses, but all of their scents are divine! This is the perfect gift to give if you want to be “safe” – everyone loves a fancy candle for their home!Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • Relaxed V-Neck Sweater – I also think that a loose, comfy V-neck sweater is a great go-to gift for pretty much any woman because she can style it different ways to make it her own. If I’m giving someone clothes, I make sure to stick with something basic (avoid crazy patterns they might not like), from a company with a great return policy (like Nordstrom), and with a looser fit that’s more forgiving (that way it’s easier to guess their size). Pick any color you think she’d like, and pair it with a scarf, a simple necklace, a gift card, or just give it by itself! Maybe it’s just me, but I personally feel like I can never have too many sweaters!Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • Dogeared Necklace – Dogeared offers a ton of beautiful, simple necklaces that each have a different meaning, so you can pick a necklace that reminds you of the person you’re shopping for. Trust me, she will appreciate it if there’s meaning behind it! They have both silver and gold necklaces, and they all come with cards that share a bit more about the significance behind the necklace. Pick a style she’ll love, and I’m sure the card that comes along with it will also mean something to her. Some of my favorites are “accomplish,” “triple karma,” “new beginnings,” and “friendship.”Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • Prana Mat – These accupressure mats are amazing for relaxation, self-healing, and relieving body pain. It helps to restore the natural energy flow in the body relieve tension in different areas, and act as a simple at-home replacement for massage. If someone doesn’t have time or money to get reflexology or accupressure done, this is a great option. All it takes is 10 minutes once or twice a day. It feels uncomfortable at first, but you get used to it after a bit – especially after you notice how amazing you feel after using it!
    Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • Himalayan Glow Salt Lamp – Pink salt lamps are adorable decor, provide a lovely glow to any room, and even have some health benefits, according to some. Many claim that the negative salt ions released by heating a pink salt lamp can help with blood circulation, promote sleep, increase energy levels, reduce stress, calm allergy and asthma symptoms, and more. The jury is still out on how effective these really are, in my opinion, but either way – I love the way they look in a room! That natural glow is oh-so-soothing!Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2018
  • The Female Brain by Louann Brizendine – I have a lot of favorite books when it comes to women’s health, and books I personally think every woman should read, but sometimes it can be awkward to give someone a book related to health unless you’re really close to the person. She might think you’re implying that she needs to work on whatever the topic of the book is. In order to avoid that awkward situation, I’ve chosen this book, which really is great for every woman (and man!) to read. It dives into the way the female brain is formed and developed, how we are wired differently than men, how this explains female behaviors and emotions, and more. It’s extremely fascinating to learn why women are the way we are! Plus, it’s not a self-help book, so don’t worry.
  • The Paleo Women Lifestyle Program Self-Study Course – If there’s a woman in your life who is looking to transition to a healthier lifestyle, learn more about the paleo way of living, or enhance an already healthy diet and lifestyle, my online course is the perfect option for her! The self-study course is available year-round and contains hours of video lectures and audio lectures as well as downloadable PDFs to cover the ins and outs of women’s health – because most of the “health advice” you’ll find online is really targeted toward men (this is why so many women don’t get the results they want). This course covers the benefits of a paleo diet, why it’s different for women, how to balance hormones, avoiding the top health mistakes women make, optimizing digestion and sleep, stress management, cooking and grocery shopping hacks, understanding ingredients, exercise, body image, and so much more. This course contains all of the knowledge you need to help with a variety of symptoms – reduce bloating, manage a healthy weight, clear your skin, have a healthy and easy period, improve your energy levels, optimize your sleep, balance out your mood, and more! Once someone is in the self-study course, they also have the option to upgrade to the group coaching program whenever I run it next!
