At WellBe, we believe the hundred choices a day you make are healthcare. To help you and your loved ones #getwellbe (Not sure what that means? Learn more here!), we pulled together a few holiday gift options to help you make healthier choices from day to night.
This minimalist pour-over coffee maker is made of glass, which, unlike plastic, won’t potentially leach hormone-disrupting chemicals or hang onto harmful bacteria. Maybe throw in organic coffee beans?
As we talked about in our water filter guide, while you’re not drinking water in your shower, you are inhaling it through steam. Your skin is your largest organ and absorbs whatever is in water. This filter claims to remove chlorine, which has been linked to higher incidences of bladder, rectal, and breast cancers.
From non-GMO cotton seeds through production, these luxurious towels are never touched by chemicals.
Cooking with cast iron can naturally add iron to food, which is especially useful for people who don’t eat red meat or have anemia. (If you have trouble processing iron, don’t buy this!) Plus, cast iron pans are naturally non-stick and getting away from conventional non-stick pans is smart, as the chemical coating never breaks down once it’s in the body and could be carcinogenic.
Not all spices are of good quality. In fact, almost all non-organic spices in the U.S. are sprayed with chemicals. Gift this 16-piece spice set to add antioxidants to any meal (and they come in such pretty bottles!). This set has black peppercorn, cayenne pepper, chili powder, cinnamon, crushed hot red pepper, cumin, garlic powder, garlic salt, Grind To A Salt savory blend, ground black pepper, oregano, paprika, parsley, rosemary, thyme leaf, and turmeric.
After lunch, it can be nice to have a ginger shot to help digestion. But ginger is hard to liquify without a juicer. Plus, ginger is great for warding off colds!
It’s kind of hard to find an electric kettle that doesn’t have plastic that touches the water— even the stainless steel and glass ones may have plastic in the water viewing window or the interior of the lid or spout. The interior of Secura’s electric kettle is made entirely of stainless steel, so no plastic touches the hot water.
Lov Organic’s Ecocert-certified teas are packed in biodegradable muslin tea bags. This assortment includes their most popular teas, including Jasmine and Linden-Rose. And how cute is their packaging?!
This Team WellBe favorite is made with sustainable rubber and doesn’t have any harmful plastics. Bonus: Jade plants a tree for every mat sold!
Not sure what kind of wine your friend likes? This bundle includes one bottle each of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Zinfandel. The winery sources its grapes from organic and biodynamic vineyards. (Why organic wine? Here’s why.)
Stick this device on top of your wine glass before you pour and it’ll remove sulfites and sediments from your drink. Like we said in our organic wine guide, non-organic winemakers add extra sulfites to preserve wine longer on the shelf. Once you open the bottle, you don’t need them! Give your liver a break and filter them out before you take a sip— oh, and you’ll feel better the next day!
These Team WellBe favorites are great for when you’re lounging on the couch, binge watching or reading, to help your feet recover from the stress of the day, or if you have flat feet or any arch issues. Our chiropractors told us they can be corrective if used consistently!
A Team WellBe favorite, these candles are made with organic coconut wax blended with aromatherapy-grade essential oils. The Dream fragrance has soothing vanilla and lavender, which can be great before bed. More importantly, they do not contain harmful fragrances, chemicals, metals (the wick is 100 percent cotton), paraffin, or GMO soy wax found in most candles. A bonus: Wild Beautiful Free gives 10 percent of their profits to rescue sanctuaries for elephants, lions, and gorillas, which are critically endangered.
Lastly, books from WellBe’s interview subjects!
We’ve been fortunate to chat with some intelligent and inspiring people this year. Any of their books make for great gifts!
