Terra Origin Plant Protein and Organic Turmeric Chai Blend (Their plant protein is a great place to start, but my favorite is definitely the turmeric blend!

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial | Winky Lux Watermelon Jelly Balm (love this stuff little balm – it reacts to your body’s natural pH levels to create you perfect shade of pink. It’s also cruelty-free, paraben-free and vegan!) | BeautyBio GloPRO Microneedling Regeneration Tool (also comes in a set, too!) | Beautycounter Instant Awakening Trio | Mindfulness Cards (obsessed with this idea!)
Everlane ReNew Sweatshirt (made out of recycled plastic!) | Fitbit Versa (I own and LOVE this Fitbit – highly recommend!) | Manduka Yoga Mat | Fitbit Flyer Wireless Headphones (aren’t they so pretty?!)

Happy Thursday! Maybe it’s because I’m still recovering from Cyber Week craziness, but I can’t wait for this weekend. Even though Thanksgiving was great last week, I didn’t really get a chance to totally unwind. Which may have been why this particular gift guide was so fun to put together. I could use some self care gifts right now! 😂
I personally love that gifts for the health/fitness junkie have evolved to include so much more than just gym gear. Taking care of ourselves now includes both physical and mental wellness! What we eat, how we unwind, ways to find gratitude, and so much more.
The Best Fitness and Self Care Gifts
Terra Origin Supplements and Powders
I know this might be an untraditional gift, but it’s so useful! Think about it! If they love making smoothies, Terra Origin Plant Protein Powder is something they can use all the time. Although, my personal favorite Terra Origin product is their Organic Chai Turmeric Blend. Not only does it have anti-inflammatory properties, but it tastes like the most deliciously cozy chai latte 😋 Highly recommend, especially if you’re shopping someone who lives somewhere cold (like Chicago!). Also, use my code LAKESHORELADY25 for 25% off your purchase!
Crystals and Gemstones
I’ve been curious about crystals for a while, but it’s hard to know where to start. Is it all mumbo jumbo or can they really be helpful? I don’t know the answers, but this book, Elemental Energy: Crystal and Gemstone Rituals for a Beautiful Life, looks like a great intro. And if you’re getting them the book, this Crystal Healing Box would make such a pretty addition for a beginner!
Clean Beauty/Skincare Products
I love a good gift set, and this Beautycounter Instant Awakening Trio is perfect for your hard working gal pal. I’m also obsessed with Kopari’s coconut deodorant, which (I know) isn’t the sexiest gift ever 😂 But you can get hers Kopari’s gift set with that, plus organic coconut melt, face cream, and lip balm! Also, I’ve never tried Drunk Elephant’s Babyfacial, but so many of you RAVE about it. There are so many great options right now!
Help her relax
Even when we know we should relax, it can be hard to actually do it. One thing that’s been helping me a lot is CBD oil. Specifically, Populum Full Spectrum Hemp Oil. For those of you new to hemp/CBD, it does not get you high! Instead, I find that it helps ease my anxiety, especially at night when I’m trying to unwind before bed.
If she’s not into that, I also love this bamboo bath caddy. It has spots for you to put your book, your phone, and even a glass of wine! Helllllo!
Gifts that encourage mindfulness
I’ve been looking for a gratitude journal recently, and during my search, I found so many amazing gift ideas! For example, this book is full of amazing quotes – but it also has a section for you to answer a question each day. Similarly, I’m really loving these Mindfulness Cards. Keep the deck on your desk and draw a card to help you set an intention each day. Such a great idea!
She’s gotta have something cozy to wear after that trip to the gym, right?! This Everlane Sweatshirt is not only comfortable, but it’s made out of plastic bottles! Something that feels good to wear by a brand that feels good to support. And speaking of sustainability, I’m sure any active gal (or guy!) would love a new pair of AllBirds!
Fun Fitness Gifts
If your fitness-loving friend/sister/brother/etc doesn’t have a smart watch yet, I’d definitely recommend my Fitbit Versa! It’s been super helpful for me as I’ve started to do more self-led workouts at the gym. Fitbit also recently came out with these wireless headphones, too! Aren’t they the prettiest?!
If they’ve already got that stuff, you can never go wrong with a fresh yoga mat or a cool new gym bag. I also just bought these high waisted shimmer tights on Cyber Monday and I’m SO excited to get them. They’re obviously made for working out, but they’d also be cute with an oversized sweater and booties, too!
