Holiday season is upon us. Wouldn’t you like to make an impact with your holiday gifts this year? Give a holiday gift that the whole world will love.
Holiday Gifts The Whole World Will Love
My goal for 2017 is to reduce single-use plastic by transitioning to reusable options. In order to do so, I need to collect a bunch of reusable bags for groceries and toting items. Check out Mothering Mother, a small business making a big difference by providing reusable bags.
Reusable Water Bottles
Most drinks come in single-use containers that are not biodegradable and contribute to global pollution. Help the world by inspiring people to adopt healthy, reusable alternatives to single-use plastic. I like Tervis water bottles. Learn more about plastic pollution here.
Plastic straws are among the most littered items. Don’t contribute to this type of pollution. Use glass straws.
Solar Phone Charger
Perhaps you know someone with future goals of going off the grid just waiting to get funds in order. In the meantime, promote using clean energy in small ways. Switch your friends to solar energy for phone charging this holiday season!
Vegan Recipe Book
Did you know livestock emits an astronomical amount of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere? By breeding at the rate we do, scientists believe this is contributing to climate change, which will gradually become devastating to our environment. By reducing your meat intake, especially beef, you will help minimize destruction to our planet. It is healthier for our world to eat a mostly plant-based diet. Check out this brand new book, Vegan For Everybody: Foolproof Plant-Based Recipes for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and In-Between.
Gifts That Promote Healthy Lifestyles
Work Out Apparel
Sometimes that hardest part of getting going is getting dressed. Once you’re suited up, it’s easier to make your move. Send your loved ones on their way with some new work out gear.
A yoga mat is an affordable holiday gift that everyone should have, even non-yogis. Stretching is important for everybody. It helps get the blood flowing and will contribute to health and wellness. Get your friends in downward dog this holiday season with a new yoga mat.
Help motivate your pals this holiday season with a gym membership. There are various budget options out there. If you search around for holiday promos, you could find a steal your buds will thank you for down the line when they’re leading a happier, healthier life.
Gifts That Spread Positive Vibes
Sometimes it takes being gifted something you wouldn’t normally buy yourself to get into something. Maybe your friends have never experimented with meditation before because they were never turned on to it. Enlighten your peeps this holiday season and help them free their mind in comfort.
Gongs are used in meditation practice as a type of sound therapy to help maintain concentration and reduce stress. It may be perfect for an enthusiast you know will enjoy experimenting with it.
Flowers and chocolate are America’s go-to gifts. That’s lovely and all, but chocolate is consumable and flowers die soon after being plucked. Give your main squeeze something sweet and pretty that will last forever. Stones and crystals emit healing energies and help relieve stress. There are even wearable options out there. Check out these healing mala beads.
Sage / Healing Incense
Burning sage is an aromatherapeutic ancient practice to clear negative energy in your home and promote healing. Go smudge your friends this holiday season.
Gifts That Further Knowledge & Creativity
Zentangle Coloring Books
Give your favorite people the gift of serenity with Zentangle coloring books. It is a mindless and therapeutic pastime that promotes creativity, stress reduction and happiness.
I think everyone in the world should read: The Power of Now and A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle, Quantum Healing and Super Genes by Deepak Chopra, Biocentrism by Robert Lanza, The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton, The Art of Communicating by Thich Nhat Hanh, and The Mastery of Love by Don Miguel Ruiz. These are books on humanitarian topics and I believe the world would benefit from such insights.
