I try my best to make gifts matter. To buy what is needed, what will bring great joy, or what will facilitate a positive change in one's health and wellness. With the holidays around the corner sometimes it feels like a race to consumerism- buy buy buy because you still have a list of people to shop for and you haven't figured out what to get them yet! Just get them anything at this point!
No, stop! Don't get them just anything. Gifts should be thoughtful, even if that means one great thought out gift instead of 3-4 thoughtless gifts. In this gift guide you will find some of my most recommended and well thought out gift ideas, for almost everyone on your shopping list that you can still purchase last minute (thank goodness for Amazon)!
For the Hard to Shop For:
23&Me DNA Test:
What is it? An at-home saliva collection kit that you send in for analysis to get interesting information on your ancestry, wellness reports, traits (such as hair loss, unibrow and salt vs sweet preference) and genetic health risk information.
Who's it for? This is a fantastic gift for the hardest to shop for! It's fun and interesting, great for individuals of all ages. This would be a great option for the historian in your life who is interested in learning more about their heritage and ancestry, the health-conscious who is curious about genetic predispositions or health factors, and for kids who can use this information to explore the reasons behind certain traits and preferences!
What is it? A hardware-software that provides you actionable information about your vehicle. The sensor can identify 6,800 maladies affecting your car that may cause the check-engine light to turn on. The hardware feeds information from your car to an app on your smartphone.
Who's it for? Your teenage and adult children, wife, or girlfriend who may know very little about cars and often found themselves in a situation where they can be easily taken advantage for at the dealership or auto repair shop. This device allows them to know exactly what's wrong with their car when their check engine light comes on, by simply checking in on their phone app, so they can walk into the repair shop with complete understanding and confidence!

Essential Oils Diffuser:
What is it? A Ultrasonic diffuser is the best way to carry essential oils into the air without changing the fragile medicinal properties of the oils. This can be used to scent the home in a safe and non-toxic way instead of candles and plugins, or can be used for health benefits to support the immune system and aid in alleviating symptoms of cough and cold when a member of the family is sick.
Who's it for? Every home should have one!
