The 2020 holiday season will be quite different from years past. But even if you’re not going to be traveling to see loved ones in person, we know that you still want to get the perfect gift for everyone on your list. And in a year so dominated by a disease, what’s better than giving the gift of health?
To help you out, we’ve pulled out a few of our favorite items from the WellBe Non-toxic Product Database (psst: we’re having a major Cyber Monday sale, so jump on it!), going through the thousands of health and wellness gifts in there to hand-select a few that are perfect for gifting right now. Check out our guide below to find special, thoughtful gift ideas that are free of any harmful compounds and 100% WellBe-approved.
Wellness Gifts for the Person Who Loves to Be Pampered
We are all about self-care — and in a year like 2020, it’s more important than ever! These luxurious gifts are great choices for anyone on your list who loves a little pampering and desperately misses going to the salon or spa.
We love these festive colors and sparkles. It’s like a New Year’s party in a bottle!
10-free (contains no Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, camphor, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, triphenyl phosphate, parabens, or lead). The Think Dirty app rates it a 3 for toxicity (0-10, 0 being the best!).
One of our favorite things about these organic, vegan, eco-friendly candles is that a part of every purchase helps fund animal and habitat protection efforts for three critically endangered species: elephants, lions, and gorillas. With deforestation an ever-looming threat, poaching on the rise, and prevailing environmental destruction, endangered populations are dwindling — these animals need our help now more than ever!
The Hope candle is made with a blend of pure therapeutic-grade Citrus and Floral essential oils, organic coconut wax, lead-free cotton wick and 22k gold foil artwork.
Diffusing essential oils can do wonders for stress and sleep. Plus we’re all spending so much time at home these days, why not have it smell great in a non-toxic way?! We love these essential oils, which are available in a variety of scents and modes of application, alongside this understated yet intricate diffuser.
The Environmental Working Group rates Aura a 1-2 (depending on the scent) out of 10 (so very clean!) and the Think Dirty app gives it a 0 (their best rating!)
Wellness Gifts for the Food Lover
Nobody’s going out to eat, but the foodie in your life can still satisfy their desire for deliciousness with these special gifts.
If you’ve had Hu Kitchen chocolate, you know how amazing it is. If you haven’t, do yourself a favor and snag one of these sets to gift, and one for yourself.
Ingredients: USDA Organic (Organic cocoa, organic unrefined coconut sugar, organic cocoa butter), Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Certified Non-GMO, Cane sugar-free, No refined sugars, No sugar alcohols, No palm oil, No sunflower lecithin, No soy lecithin.
A study we covered in our January 2020 wrap-up showed that people who drink more than three cups of tea a week have a lower risk of heart attack, stroke, and other fatal problems. Now that we’re home all day every day, we are drinking tons of tea.
But remember non-organic tea can be full of chemicals from the growing process, plus added “natural flavors” (aka mystery chemicals), so it’s important to buy organic. This organic gift set covers every need and mood!
Breakfast Blend (for Focus), Aged Earl Grey (for Balance), Emperor’s Pu-erh (to Energize), Jasmine Green (to Reflect), Mate Lemon (to Invigorate), Rooibos Chai (to Inspire), Moroccan Mint (Refresh) and Chamomile Lemon (to Sleep).
Many of us have been buying more wine at home, and while too much wine is an unhealthy habit, a daily glass with friends or family is part of the Blue Zones rituals for living a happy, long life. But not all wine is created equal: most wine is full of added sugar, chemical pesticides, fertilizers, and preservatives.
Dry Farm Wines is a health-focused natural wine club with flexible bottle amounts and frequency options. They lab test every bottle through a third party-certified enologist to ensure all of their wine is additive-free, sugar-free, low in alcohol, and low in sulfites.
*Bonus: They replace any bottle that is not loved by the recipient, no questions asked!
Wellness Gifts for the Homebody
Let’s face it, we’re all homebodies this year. These gifts make staying in feel a little more special.
You may already know that most non-stick pans contain chemicals that have been linked to thyroid disorders, chronic kidney disease, liver disease, infertility, low birth weight, and testicular cancer. Since 2013, pans have gotten safer, but many still contain chemicals that are unsafe for humans when too heated (and how could you know what is too heated?!).
A cast-iron skillet eliminates this problem, and if you need a boost of iron, it can also give you that.
Puracy offers a variety of amazing-smelling gift sets like a “dishwashing set”, a “baby home set”, a “hair and body set” and more. The Environmental Working Group and Think Dirty apps rate the organic lemongrass natural surface cleaner an A (A-F, A being the best) and a 3 (0-10, 0 being the best) respectively. Think Dirty also rates the organic lemongrass natural dish soap a 2 (0-10, 0 being the best).
These products are sulfate-free, petrochemical-free, ammonia-free, gluten-free, vegan, hypoallergenic, and bleach-free.
You’ve probably heard a lot about how blue light affects your body by now. If you haven’t, a July 2020 Harvard Medical school article explains that research shows blue light affects your sleep and circadian rhythm and may contribute to the causation of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.
And since blue wavelengths — which are beneficial during daylight hours because they boost attention, reaction times, and mood — seem to be the most disruptive at night or as the sun starts to set, so for some of us as early as 4pm, it’s critical that you wear blue light glasses if you are going to be looking at a phone, tablet, computer or TV screen.
Felix Gray has a lot of great designs, and if you’ve never needed glasses, you can fulfill your dreams of having a pair! This is a great gift to get for the whole family, and yourself!
