Health Nut Holiday Gift Guide

health nut gift guide

Woo! The last of my 3 holiday gift guides: the fashionista, the yogi, and now, the health nut!

Health fanatics typically get the same gifts every year…gym shorts, running shoes, a cool water bottle…yada yada…but not this year. This year I’m getting creative with my health junkies, with gift boxes and packages! Gift boxes and packages are such great gifts, and an awesome way to stand out and let your gift keep on giving to their health all year.

I’m sorry they’re not organized by price, but they all are such varying prices it didn’t make sense to do it that way! For instance, the Bulu Boxes and TSOH packages can be as cheap as $5, but can also be nicer and more pricey.

THE HEALTH NUT HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE:

1. One of The Skinny on Health’s gift packages (DUH!) — you can pick the perfect one in your price range for your friends and family’s diet and fitness goals!*

2. A FabFitFun VIP box subscription — my sister just got me one for Hanukkah! SUCH a creative gift and a total steal!! Plus, I’ve got a secret sneak peek for you all! The winter FabFitFun box includes this GORGEOUS Never Ending Giving Keys necklace — I cannot WAIT to get mine in the mail!!

3. A Bulu Box Subscription — I mean, you all know I love Bulu. This gift is great because you can control the cost of the gift by adjusting the # of boxes you get them! Or, you can get them a big holiday gift box that fits their needs (they offer a busy mom one, a beauty buff one, and more!) The best part? A 50% off coupon code: BULUGAN412 ;)

4. A NatureBox — a great gift for seriously healthy eaters! NatureBoxes are similar to Bulu, but they focus on sharing natural, healthy foods rather than a weight loss or fitness goal. They are a $20/box with free shipping, but are larger than Bulu and stuffed with a lot more foods than other boxes!

5. If you’re not feeling the boxes, a Jillian Michaels video is an amaze gift for the health/fitness enthusiast, especially a busy one or a new mom! My favorites of hers are the frontside/backside combo and the Ripped in 30!

6. The Firm Kettle Bell Kit — I have actually never tried this workout but just ordered it because LOOK AT THIS STEAL! 2 DVDs and a kettlebell for only $16?!

7. Insanity workout videos - the perfect gift for a friend that wants to get serious about weight loss, let Sean T whip their ass into shape!

*TSOH gift packages are currently sold out! Have no fear, a new batch is currently being made with love by yours truly. If you order yours before 12/12, it will be ready to be shipped out on December 19!

Happy Holidays!

Fit Tip Tuesday: Check your phone at the door

blah blah gym [via Buzzfeed]

I just learned this lesson, and let me tell you, it’s a game changer.

Workouts can be many things. They can be intense, relaxing, motivating, stressful, and the list goes on. Personally, I don’t have a lot of time to devote to the gym. That’s why I like to make the most out of my workouts.

I used to be on my phone throughout my entire gym routine. Texting, Insta, Twitter, the whole shabang. Now, I leave my phone outside/tucked away in my bag. Totally changed my workout.

Not only can you focus on your workout and not get distracted and waste time, you can use your workout as a form of meditation. Even if you’re doing HIIT and not into yoga, your workout should be YOU time. Your little sliver of time every day that you don’t have to worry about anyone or anything but you and your body. This is PRECIOUS. Turning off your phone (or turning it to airplane mode if you use the music on it) separates you from stresses and excess noise, and allows you to just work on you.

After doing this for a couple months, I will never go back. It has become a force of habit to turn on airplane mode at the gym and leave it outside for yoga. Now, I reflect on me and my progress on my morning run, and can truly meditate in yoga. After my workouts I am calm and rejuvenated, rather than stressed and busy. I don’t think about what time it is or where I have to be or do that day, it’s like a mini vacation.

Try it out! Do any of you already do this? Who’s going to try it this week?

Fashionista Holiday Gift Guide

gift guide -- fashionista

You guys. Let’s HIT UP Cyber Monday.

Yeee the holidays are here! I was going to make one gift guide for all you lovely ladies, but I figured, what’s better than one? THREE.

Why? Well, for one, presents rock.

Additionally, my readers are not just healthy eaters. You guys are fitness gurus, health nuts, yogis, fitnessistas, fashionistas, exercise manics, experimental chefs, beauty experts, muscle builders, sooo many more awesome things! Why make just one gift guide when you all appreciate so many aspects of life? Ergo, three gift guides: for the fashionista, the yogi, and the health nut. I would make more, but I’ve only got so many hours in the day! Hopefully the three will satisfy all your gift needs. If not, you can ALWAYS comment or contact me with requests. :)

TSOH’S GIFT GUIDE FOR THE FASHIONISTA:

1. The cutest feminine “Floral Fantasy” woven scarf — SUCH a steal from F21!

2. The most badass “Tigerhead bracelet” from Nasty Gal.

3. An equally badass “Lock Horns necklace” from Nasty Gal.

4. The perfect sized and priced NYX makeup set from Urban.

5. “Paddywax mason jar candle” from Urban -the pomegranate and spruce is my favorite scent/color for the holidays! 

6. The “Skyn Iceland Detox Kit” — my go-to for when my skin is crazy stressed and needs a reset button, GREAT gift for a tight GF! 

7. I’m obsessed with this simple night out “Knot Over You” dress from Nasty Gal, my boyfriend just got it for me in black for the holidays!

8. Meeeeow — amazing, cozy gift for your cat-obsessed friend (we all have one….)

9. The freaking CUTEST “I Effin Love You” BFF necklace EVER. I highly recommend for a sister or best friend. 

10. These “Off the Record” trench coats are soo in right now and look cute over everything — you really can’t go wrong with it! 

Look out for my next two gift guides, for the health nut & for the yogi, later this week!

Happy Holidays!
