My Favorite Food Gifts
Grass-Fed Beef: For the foodies on your list, instead of sending a box of feed-lot beef, please visit US Wellness Meats instead. They’ve got great prices on grass-fed beef plus other natural meats, broths, spices and seafood – they’re a great company!
Grass-Fed Bison: The Honest Bison’s premium steak box includes impressive tomahawk steaks, rib-eyes, strip steaks and filet mignons. When you order through my link, they’ll also include a free pound of ground bison.
Whole30 Sampler Pack: This is a great gift to yourself or to support your buddy. It features a great assortment of clean snacks like bars, nuts, seafood and jerky curated by Barefoot Provisions. I am a big fan of the Whole30 AND I love everything in this kit. Consider also sending the Whole30 book as well!
Primal Palate Organic Spices: Everyone needs to rotate out their spices on a regular basis, and for only $139, you can send your friends or family one of everything in this collection. I’m especially a fan of the blends. The Adobo Seasoning, Barbecue Rub and Meat & Potatoes Seasoning are all you need to add to your dishes to bring a normal weeknight side dish or meat to a whole new level. Buy them for yourself or send them as a gift. I’m sure you’ll love them as much as I do!
Vital Choice Seafood They features fresh-caught quality, sustainably harvested Alaskan salmon and northwest Pacific seafood by cleaning and flash-freezing it within hours of harvest. The fisheries that supply much of thier seafood are certified sustainable either by MSC (look for their blue logo) or the State of Alaska.
Instant Pot: I know I’m a broken record about this gadget, but this electric pressure cooker has been a game-changer for me. I can make homemade broth in 90 minutes, pulled pork in an hour, and beef stew in 30 minutes. Because it’s electric, you’ll have no worries leaving it to bubble away on your kitchen counter while you run errands. It comes in smaller sizes but I prefer this larger one. I guarantee you’ll love it!
Food Dehydrator Make jerky or preserve fruit and vegetables with this simple and easy to use food dehydrator. It’s top-mounted fan eliminates the worry of liquids dripping into the heater chamber. You’ll love how simple it is to use!
Victorinox Chef’s Knife If you’re in search of a great chef’s knife that won’t break the bank, this one is it. It’s a great size, and one of the best reviewed on the market. These knives have renowned sharpness, and are hand made in Switzerland. The slip resistant handle is hygenic and dishwasher safe.
Digital Meat Thermometer Be sure your meat is at the right temperature with this super simple to use and high quality meat thermometer. If you’re still using touch to tell when your meat is done, or cutting into it to see if it’s the right color, it’s time to upgrade to a real, reliable, and the most accurate meat thermometer.
Stainless Steel Cordless Electric Kettle I’ve gone through a ton of electric tea kettles. This one is by far the best one. It has a concealed heating element which prevents mineral buildup. It has a keep warm function, heats to different temperatures (for you tea experts – green, oolong, black) and if it starts heating without enough water in the unit, the heater will automatically shut off to avoid damaging the heating element.
Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet I own three sizes of cast iron skillets, and this one is a great 10.25-inch, multi-functional skillet made in America by Lodge for frying on the stovetop or roasting in the oven. It retains heat well, which means a great sear on meat and it keeps food warm for a long time. I like buying these skillets pre-seasoned. Ditch your non-stick pans and give this one a try!
Alison Storry Jewelry Alison lives up the street from me and is a talented jewelry maker. Her beautiful, affordable pieces are perfect gifts to yourself or a good friend. Each piece is made by hand, and her necklaces, bracelets and rings have a bohemian feel. She incorporates gemstones, gold, and symbols into her work to produce one-of-a-kind, stunning jewelry.
Naughty to Nice Set: (Charcoal cleansing bar and mask – my favorite two products!) Created without harsh ingredients that can be overly drying to skin, these little ‘lumps’ of coal are pretty much the best gift you can give your skin this season. Charcoal absorbs impurities and purifies congestion without drying out skin. Use these staples as part of your beauty routine for smoother, brighter, younger-looking skin in less than 15 minutes. This giftable duo comes in special holiday sizing and is packaged inside a limited edition red box.
Favorite Skin Care Set: Clean, soft skin starts here. We’ve curated our best-sellers into the perfect giftable collection for everyone on your list. This must-own set includes five complexion and lip essentials in travel-friendly sizes. Made with cleaner ingredients, it all comes packaged in our limited edition gift box! $154 value
Lip Gloss Set “Love and Luster” Just in the time for the holidays, this wishlist-worthy collection of four Glosses includes two NEW festive colors — Blossom, a pearly pink, and Sunshine, a sparkly gold — to add high-wattage luster to any look. Made with carnauba wax, a Brazilian plant that promotes long-lasting shine and vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant with hydrating and skin-conditioning properties. Plus, it all comes beautifully wrapped in our exclusive holiday box.
The WORKS – This is it: absolutely everything you need from head to toe, including our Face Collection (with all our Essential products) and Body Collection (which includes Daily Shampoo and Daily Conditioner), plus all three Face Oils (each with its own unique scent and benefits), our luxe and nourishing Body Oil in Citrus Rosemary, and our skin-polishing Sugar Body Scrub.
Icebreakers Mens Long Sleeve Top, and For Women I love these 100% merino wool long underwear shirts – ultra warmth and sweat wicking. Smartwool socks are also fantastic, and check out these microwavable slippers for instant coziness.
Vertical Garden Planter Gardening is even easier with a small footprint. This this beautiful and well-made vertical planter, it’s possible to have a garden just about anywhere. Comes pre-assembled and includes a drip line irrigation system, so you can water less and enjoy growing more.
Wake-Up Light with Sunrise Simulation Ideal for anyone who finds it difficult to get up in the morning, especially in the dark winter months. Its gradual sunrise eases you awake, gently and naturally, just like a summer’s dawn, and just in case, there’s a back-up beeper. Wake-up feeling fresh and energetic – just as nature intended.
Sleep Remedy Specifically designed to replenish the nutritionally and stress induced deficiencies that interfere with normal physiologic cascades that lead to deep, restful, and restorative sleep. This product will help change the way you sleep forever. I absolutely love it and use it myself every night! My sleep has never been so deep and I wake up fully rested and ready for the day.
Blue Light Therapy Lamp: I’ve been using light therapy during the dark winter months for a while now and it’s been a real help with my sleep and mood.
Earthrunner Sandals: I keep meaning to write a blog post about how much I love these. I was having some food pain early last summer from wearing flip flops, and it all disappeared when I switched to Earth Runners. They’re incredibly comfortable, great for your feet, and I love the way they look. I plan on getting a pair for everyone in my family to break in during our winter vacation.
