Feel-Good Gifts You’ll Feel Good About Giving

Finding unique and useful gifts for the people you care about can be challenging, but hopefully we can help out a bit.

Here’s a list of gift ideas just about anyone would appreciate.

The prices are accurate at the time of this posting, but remember – retailers are free to change prices from day to day. All of these items were in stock when we made this list, but that is subject to change too. Some of these items are very popular and are on sale (for VERY good prices), so grab them while you can!

Sound Spa Relaxation Machine with Nature Sounds $18

Create a relaxing environment nearly anywhere with this sound machine. It has six digitally recorded, calming sounds: White Noise, Thunder, Ocean, Rain, Summer Night and Brook.  An auto-off timer allows you to run the machine for 15, 30, or 60 minutes at a time (or you can leave it running indefinitely). It’s lightweight and perfect for travel.

The Simple Elephant Planner – Achieve Your Goals & Increase Productivity, Passion & Happiness – Gratitude Journal, Mindmap & Vision Board $16

Do you – or does someone you care about – struggle with procrastination and meeting goals? This planner can help. The Simple Elephant utilizes positive psychology to help you achieve goals, increase productivity, passion, and happiness over time.

Think Happy: Instant Peptalks to Boost Positivity $9

Who couldn’t use a peptalk every once in a while? Happiness expert Karen Salmansohn presents a collection of 50 inspirational inner peptalks to boost confidence, attitude, and mood. They are different than affirmations – they’re feisty, fun, and memorable, and will stick in your brain like a catchy song.

iPerfect Lifestyle Infuser Water Bottle $15

We all know *someone* (ahem, perhaps that someone is YOU) who doesn’t drink enough water, or drinks way too many sugary beverages and sodas. This infuser offers a healthier alternative to those drinks – with it, you can create your own naturally flavored water with vegetables & fruits – try lemon, lime, strawberry, mango, orange – or any fruits or veggies you like. The infuser comes with three free Ebooks:  Fruit Infusion Bottles Recipes, Living the Paleo Way, and Drop 10 in 7. The bottle is BPA free and is made of shatterproof Tritan.

Nap Throw Blanket $40

Nap Blankets are known for being the softest, most plush blankets around. They are perfect for luxurious lounging all year long – these blankets are just the right weight to keep you cozy no matter the season. Colors include mint (shown above), camel, mulberry, gray, ruby, and sapphire.

Pacifica Waikiki Pikake Candles $21

Pacifica products are 100% vegan and cruelty free. Their candles are made with natural and essential oils and have cotton wicks. Waikiki Pikake (shown above) combines sweet Pikake – a delicate, exquisite jasmine flower native to Hawaii – with sensuous and velvety sandalwood. Nine other scents are available: Brazilian Mango Grapefruit, Lotus Garden, Floral, French Lilac, Malibu Lemon Blossom, Mediterranean Fig, Persian Rose, Sandalwood, and Tahitian Gardenia.

Handmade Hawaiian Soap Set $39

This set includes 10 fantastically fragrant bars of soap that have the unique scent of the islands. You’ll get two of each of these soaps: Plumeria Blossom, Pikake Jasmine, Pineapple Passion Fruit, Mango Coconut Guava, and Creamy Coconut. They are made with saponified coconut, palm oil, natural colors, and natural fragrances. Island Soap & Candle Works makes these beautiful bars, and they offer neat-o Hawaiian-themed soap dishes on their website.

Alba Botanica Hawaiian, Sea Salt Body Scrub $19

Alba Botanica is my favorite skin care brand. I love the clean, fresh, tropical scent – and I love that the company does not test their products on animals. This body scrub contains Pacific sea salts that exfoliate and sweet island oils that moisturize. The result? Softer, smoother, more hydrated skin. Alba Botanica uses 100% vegetarian ingredients, and this scrub contains NO parabens, phthalates, or synthetic fragrances.

Marley Coffee $9

Marley Coffee was founded by Rohan Marley, son of the legendary and beloved musician, Bob Marley. Not only is this coffee smooth and rich, it is organic, sustainably grown, and ethically farmed. Organic One Love, Ethiopian YirgaCheffe is my personal favorite, but I’ve heard they are all delicious – and I believe it. Marley coffees are available in ground, whole bean, and K-cups.

Numi Organic Tea, Tea By Mood Gift Set $24

Numi teas are Fair Trade, organic, and non-GMO Project Verified. This gift set includes 40 tea bags – 5 each of the following flavors: Breakfast Blend (for Focus), Aged Earl Grey (for Balance), Emperor’s Pu-erh (to Energize), Jasmine Green (to Reflect), Mate Lemon (to Invigorate), Rooibos Chai (to Inspire), Moroccan Mint (Refresh) and Chamomile Lemon (to Sleep).

Theo Chocolate

Theo’s website says they make “Amazing, delicious, mind-bendingly wonderful chocolate” and I am inclined to agree – it’s my favorite brand. Theo chocolate is delicious, and is organic and Fair Trade (have I mentioned that their chocolate is delicious?). Theo offers holiday chocolate bars in Gingerbread, Peppermint, Cranberry Orange, and Nutcracker Brittle (shown above), Dark Drinking Chocolate, and irresistible Gift Collections that include holiday bars, chocolate covered peppermint marshmallows, caramels, and other delectable treats.

And here are a few other ideas…

Gift certificates for:

  • House cleaning
  • Yoga classes
  • Car detailing
  • Massages
  • Spa visits
  • Gym memberships

Monthly delivery subscriptions for goodies ranging from food to books to skincare products…the possibilities are endless.

Options for these gifts will vary according to location and your budget, of course.

Have a happy, healthy, and relaxing holiday season!
