We love finding the perfect gift for someone, something that shows how well you know them and how much you appreciate them. We secretly pride ourselves on being the best gift givers ever. This is our Christmas gift list so you can buy the health and wellbeing person in your life the perfect person, or maybe treat yourself!
- Subscription Boxes
Subscription boxes have recently started to become popular but they are such a good idea for those who love to try new health products. You can purchase a 1 off month subscription to get delivered to your recipient or splash out and get them a 3 or 6-month subscription for an ongoing present. Our favourites are I Am Co. and the Good Grazing Box.
- DIY Nut Mylk and Sprout Kits
If you are buying for a health nut, like ourselves, they have definitely mentioned that they have wanted to try sprout or make their own nut mylk at some point. An amazing product put together by Gather Girl and The Green Collevtive to allow anyone to start living a healthier lifestyle. These gorgeous packs give you everything needed to make either your own nut mylk or start sprouting. You can purchase them from www.thegreencollective.co.nz

- Make your own dry mix jar.
These are all over Pinterest but they do make the best gift. Find your favourite baking recipe and in a jar place all the dry ingredients needed. On a piece of brown card write out the recipe and what wet ingredients they need to add and tie it around the jar with some twine and you are done. An awesome homemade and inexpensive gift. You could also fill jars with bath salts and gift them. P.S. We love adding our Noneedforscales Low Carb Crackers to jars.
