Top 10 Healthy Low-Tox and Gut Friendly Christmas Gift Ideas
The year may have seemed to go on forever, but now right in front of us is Christmas! Often a time of indulgence, Christmas can actually be a great time to start some new habits and work on your health and wellbeing.
It has certainly been a challenging year for all of us, and not everyone has treated their bodies and their bellies as well as we should have. Cue the emotional eating…………..
If you are buying for friends or family who would love an eco-inspired, low-tox or gut friendly Christmas gift, I have put together the only shopping list you need.
So here it is: My Top 10 Healthy Low-tox and Gut Friendly Christmas gift ideas:
These sexy, sassy cups from Ecococoon are a timeless classic that will ensure you have eco-friendly cups with you at all times. They look good, feel great in your hand and are classy whether you are drinking water, iced tea, or something a little stronger.
Made from 50% recycled steel, having these with you mean you no longer need to resort to single-use or disposable cups. If you are buying for a gourmet food lover or for anyone who loves to picnic in the outdoors, these cups are a great choice. We have a set in the house and take them to picnics and camping as well.
This is a brilliant idea, and a great gift for the friend who already has everything. With this DIY kit from Buchi you can make your own raw, organic Kombucha at home, and set yourself up for a lifetime of homemade organic Kombucha.
This kit contains everything you need to brew your very own certified organic, probiotic-rich Kombucha. Your recipient can get back to healthy basics while also saving money and packaging on buying their own kombucha already made.
Another gut lovin’ idea – this DIY water kefir brewing kit from Buchi allows you to create your own raw, organic fermented kefir water. Think of all the flavour combos – raspberry, ginger and lemon, pineapple, mango and passionfruit to name a few. This is not only friendly on the gut but also on the wallet. Store bought kefir is sooooo expensive and some of them sit there for months losing their kapow of probiotics.
Pete Evans has been a controversial figure at times, but he certainly knows how to make amazing food. This book written with naturopath and nutritionist Helen Padarin is a great place to start to learn about gut health – and how to improve yours. It’s one of my faves. So much quality info and delicious recipes that everyone will enjoy.
The book features basic information on the digestion process, highlights some star ingredients and herbs and spices for gut health, as well as tons of recipes and meal plans to get you on the right track. Go on – I dare you!
The right scents can change your mood, your feelings and even your day. This bundle includes a gorgeous diffuser which looks lovely on any benchtop as well as three best-selling oil blends to help you relax, focus or find calm.
You will delight anyone who you choose to gift with this beautiful set and help to calm their farm.
I love this set. For anyone making school lunches or who likes to be eco-friendly (and save money) with their lunches for work, this is the ideal gift. The plastic free trio includes beeswax wraps, stainless steel straws and reusable produce bags – enough to make any recipient feel that they are helping the environment as they eat their favourite home cooked meal.
For friends or family who are always on the go and who love to take their juice, shake or smoothie with them, this cute insulated tumbler makes a great gift. This cup is stainless steel with a stainless steel straw, so it feels fun and grown-up all at once. It will save your recipient money and the environment as well, and keeps drinks cold for up to six hours.
And if your gift recipient wants to feel even more fun and grown-up, they might prefer this insulated reusable wine tumbler instead of the smoothie cup. Powder-coated for durability and available in a range of colours, you can also use the tumbler to keep tea or coffee hot.
Who wouldn’t love to receive a luxurious daily skincare kit like this one? This facial set is choc full of beautiful ingredients and comes in a gorgeous gift box. The kit includes a cleanser, toner and moisturiser perfect to nourish and replenish even the hardest working complexion. You can also choose the skincare kit to suit a range of different skin types.
For lovers of herbal tea and anyone who wants to get out in the garden a little more, this grow your own tea kit is just ideal. The specially designed kit includes everything you need to grow and enjoy a cup of lemon balm tea, such as lemon balm seeds, organic soil, a seed growing pot, instructions, a tea strainer and an enamel mug.
The UrbanGreens kits come in a range of different flavours including other teas, salads, salsa ingredients and flowers, and are certain to have your recipient exclaiming, ‘Where did you get that?’
I hope this gives you some ideas for healthy eco and gut friendly gift ideas.
And a happy Christmas to you and your family. Stay safe and be loved xx
