#4 Headphones

51CKPfYhliL._SL1000_

Headphones are one of those gifts you can never go wrong with.  Even the “non-fit” person can use headphones.  The reason I like these particular headphones (other than the price) is because they wrap around the ear.  If you’re a jogger/runner, you know how frustrating it can be to have your headphones constantly falling out.  These ensure a perfect and secure fit even if you’re a long distance runner.  They come is seven different colors.

 

#5 iTunes Gift Card

4056184Everyone loves iTunes!  Need to encourage someone to get healthier and more fit this year?  Pair the headphones (above) with an iTunes gift card!  Hopefully, they’ll use the card to download a few workout songs 

Good workout songs:  “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor, “Lose Yourself” by Eminem,  “Pump It” by Black Eyed Peas

                                                                                 

#6 Hail Merry Coconut Macaroons

112443

Coconut flavored ANYTHING is my weakness!  Now, I don’t have to feel guilty when eating coconut macaroons and neither do you!!  Hail Merry makes several fantastic products, but these raw vegan macaroons are probably my favorite.  They combine the ingredients and dehydrate them at a very low temperature to ensure all ingredients remain in a “raw” state.  Therefore, all of the enzymes in the ingredients remain active.  If you eat these at room temperature, they will literally melt in your mouth!  Amazingly Awesome!  Organic, Non-GMO, Vegan, Gluten Free

 

#7 Eco Lips Premium Lip Balm

21emaQTYObLEco-Lips is a really cool website that allows you to create your own lip balm exactly the way you want!  My favorite part:  they’re organic & paraben free!  Conventional lip balms usually contain parabens (used as a preservative), which are chemicals with estrogen-like properties, and estrogen is one of the hormones involved in the development of breast cancer.  So, I try to opt for paraben free products as often as possible.  Eco-Lips are a great way to moisturize your lips without the negative side affects of parabens.  Organic, Paraben Free, Cruelty Free 

 

#8 EcoTools Makeup Brush Set

81WdS259XaL._SL1500_

Give someone a cruelty-free brush set for the holidays this year!  Synthetic brushes work just as good (if not better) than brushes made with animal hair.  A few benefits of synthetic hair makeup brushes:  easier to clean, repel bacteria and dirt better than animal hair brushes, great for people with an allergy to animal hair, shed less, and no harm involved. Cruelty-Free

 

 

#9 Organic Fair Trade Peppermint Bark

243What’s a stocking without chocolate?  This organic peppermint bark is infused with organic crushed peppermint candies and drizzled with delicious organic white chocolate.  Talk about getting into the holiday spirits!!  Use this organic bark as a stocking stuffer or serve at your holiday get-togethers.  Believe me, everyone will be impressed!  And, they’ll be even more impressed when they realize it’s healthy!  This company also has vegan options available.  Organic, Non-GMO, Gluten Free, Vegan Options Available

 

#10 Dermorganic 4 Piece Travel Kit

81tkqkGZajL._SL1500_This shampoo and conditioner is the only brand that has radically transformed my hair.  Travel size bottles are not only great for traveling, of course, but they’re also a great way for someone to test the product before buying full size.  Each product is infused with argan oil from morocco, which is wonderful for treating split ends and dullness.  I love this brand so much that I listed it as one of my Top 5 Favorite Natural Beauty Essentials.  Sulfate Free, Gluten Free, Paraben Free, Vegan

 

#11 Beeswax Aromatherapy Tins

AromaTinsSelection100% pure beeswax aromatherapy travel candles in recycled tins. Each therapeutic aromatherapy blend combines only the finest essential oils with the purest beeswax. Absolutely no fragrance or synthetic scents are used.  These can come in handy whether at home or on the road, especially when you need some relaxation time!  All Natural, Fragrance Free

 

#12 VerMints CinnaMint

windowMost mints in major grocery stores and retailers contain preservatives, artificial flavors, high fructose corn syrup, etc.  Many studies have linked these artificial ingredients to a host of diseases, including cancer.  Therefore, it’s my job to give you better alternatives that taste just as good!  Introducing: VerMints 🙂  These little cuties are awesome!  And, totally help with bad breath.  Carry in your purse or stash in your desk so you’ll never have to use those cancer-causing mints again!  Gluten Free, Non-GMO, Mostly Organic, Vegan

 

#13 AA USB Rechargable Batteries (2 pack)

13724-2

Prepare to be impressed.  These USB re-chargeable batteries offer a great alternative option that is more usable, economic, and environmentally friendly.  With BILLIONS of batteries thrown away each year, this is a great way to take part in making our world a more “greener” place.  These re-chargeable batteries can charge in any USB port and have a life of up to 500 charge cycles.  Charge on your laptop, PC, gaming consoles, and where ever else a USB port is available.  Wonderful stocking stuffer for pretty much anyone! Eco-friendly

 

#14 Organic Candy Canes

windowCandy canes are a staple during the Christmas season.  Sadly, 99% of candy canes bought in major retailers contain high fructose corn syrup.  What’s so wrong with high fructose corn syrup?  In a nutshell, if it’s not organic, it’s most likely made from GMO corn.  And, HFCS is highly processed.  I’ll do an article solely on the dangers of HFCS soon.  But, for now, just know that you should avoid it like the plague!  With these organic candy canes, you can still get in the holiday spirit without damaging your body.  Organic, Gluten Free, Vegan

 

#15 Organic Yoga Mat Cleaner

61vO-06tCtL._SL1500_

So, this stocking stuffer is for the avid health nuts and yoga lovers out there!  Practicing yoga does wonders for your overall health, but sometimes it’s easy to forget to stay sanitized.  Sure, you could use a disinfectant from some major retailer, but you’d likely be inhaling all of those chemicals and fumes while doing so.  Inhaling chemicals can do much damage to your health, especially in the long haul.  Protect yourself from the outside-in by using only organic disinfectants.  Your body and lungs will thank you!  Organic

 

#16 Organic Stackable Teas

10063_2Hot teas are Oh-So-Amazing during the holidays.  A stackable tea sampler is a great stocking stuffer, especially for tea lovers!  Plus, the vintage tins can be re-used for storing other teas or even for decorating.  I like to use the tins for holding small supplies, such as paper clips, tacks, etc.  This particular company offers a wide variety of organic flavors (my favorite is mint tea).  Organic, Fair Trade, Vegan, Gluten Free

 

 

#17 Organic Peanut Butter Bonbons

bonbonsOkay, I admit.  I absolutely LOVE peanut butter… or, any nut butter at that!  So, needless to say, when the holidays roll around, I make up all sorts of excuses to get my peanut butter fix (peanut butter balls, peanut butter cups, peanut butter fudge… okay, I’ll stop).  I think you get the point.  These bonbons make a perfect stocking stuffer for those peanut butter addicts out there, like myself.  And, best of all, they’re organic and taste better than non-organic options!  Organic, Gluten Free, Vegan Options Available

 

#18 Stainless Steel Drinking Straw

61LvvKG5YTL._SL1500_The obvious reason more people should be using stainless steel straws is because you’re not using plastic straws.  The less plastic you use, the better it is for the environment.  Less plastic = less toxic landfills.  Another reason stainless steel or glass drinking straws are better for you is because they do not leach toxins into your drink.  Plus, they’re dishwasher safe, so you can literally re-use them pretty much for forever!  Eco-friendly, Dishwasher Safe

 

#19 Yerba Mate Organic Energy Shots

yerbaFirst off, I want to say that I don’t suggest taking energy shots (organic or not) on a daily basis.  But, we all have those days where we need that extra kick.  These organic energy shots are made from yerba mate, not traditional caffeine sources like coffee or green tea.  In my experience, yerba mate is the only caffeine source that doesn’t affect my health negatively.  Additionally, I never experience a crash when using yerba mate sources like I do with other caffeine sources.  By far, these are the best, most effective organic energy shots I’ve ever tried!    Organic, Non-GMO, Gluten Free, Vegan

 

#20 Organic Reflecting Lip Gloss

m-reflecting-gloss-4up-open-web-photoThis Reflecting Gloss is a great alternative to regular lip gloss.  In addition to being paraben free, it contains organic blueberry, raspberry, acai and goji berries, which provide beautiful, antioxidant and omega-rich pigments that protects the lips from signs of aging.  To moisturize the lips, they are infused with a combination of vitamin E and organic sesame seed oils.  I try to opt for organic lip glosses as much as possible because I have a tendency to lick my lips a lot throughout the day.  Paraben Free, Petroleum Free, Fragrance Free
