It’s that time again, friends. Time to find gifts for loved and cherished ones, near and far. What to gift them? Have no fear—we’ve got a few great ideas for you in our holiday gift guide from some of our favorite sponsors (including some awesome deals)!
Food Sensitivity Test from EverlyWell
A unique gift for the person who either has everything or who has any type of “questionable” symptom they can’t seem to solve (think joint pain, bloating, rashes, headaches or even acne or eczema): a food sensitivity test from EverlyWell. Food sensitivities can cause reactions days after eating the foods, so pinpointing the specific foods on your own can be difficult.
Lisa and Jason both recently did the EverlyWell Food Sensitivity Test and found out about foods that could be causing them symptoms. The at-home kit is super easy to do and tests for 96 different foods, including gluten and dairy, and takes just 5 business days to get your results. In addition to the Food Sensitivity Test, EverlyWell also offers a variety of tests, including Metabolism, Thyroid, Testosterone, Heavy Metals, and Woman’s Health & Fertility.
SPECIAL DEAL: You can save 15% on any of these tests with the code 100DAYS through December 25, 2018.
100% Grass-Fed Beef Sticks from Paleovalley
Who doesn’t love a convenient, satisfying, and healthy on-the-go snack—especially this time of year?! Recognized three years in a row by Paleo Magazine as one of the top meat sticks of the year, Paleovalley offers just that, 100% Grass-Fed Beef Sticks and Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks which provide a satisfying, clean source of natural energy and protein. Summer Sausage is Lisa’s favorite flavor!
Rest assured, their carefully sourced beef and turkey sticks are:
- Free of antibiotics or hormones
- Free of artificial nitrates or nitrites
- Made using only organic spices
- 100% Grass-Fed Beef (never given grain)
- 0g of sugar (with the exception of NEW Teriyaki, which has 2g from raw organic honey)
- Preserved naturally using the old world method of fermentation—no hydrogenated oils or encapsulated citric acid—so each stick contains naturally occurring, gut-friendly probiotics!⠀
SPECIAL DEAL: Take 20% off of ANY tasty flavors like these: Original, Jalapeño, Summer Sausage, Garlic Summer Sausage, & NEW Teriyaki with code REAL20. They also offer Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks (my personal faves) in Original or Cranberry Orange. Offer good through December 12, 2018.
Mushroom Coffee from Four Sigmatic
For that coffee fan on your list (hello!) how about a gut-friendly coffee with less caffeine (read: less jitters) than regular coffee that we can all feel better about drinking? Four Sigmatic offers organic coffees, matchas, cacaos, and elixirs all derived from mushrooms. They extract the most important nutrients and blend them with other all-natural ingredients to create a tasty concoction that will have you swapping out your morning coffee for liquid-mushrooms.
Need some assistance in picking which type of functional mushroom product to choose from? Here’s a breakdown:
- Cordyceps for the energy to get through that foot-long to-do list.
- Chaga as a powerful antioxidant that supports immune function.
- Lion’s Mane to help with focus and productivity. It has long been used by Buddhist monks to help with focus during meditation. (This one is my personal fave.)
- Reishi to combat stress and wind down after a long day.
- Matcha for reducing coffee consumption, but still needing an energy boost. Matcha delivers a feeling of balanced energy for your whole body and supports the body from stress & anxiety.
Best of all, these come in cute little packets that are in boxes that make them perfect for stocking stuffers or cute little gifts. Plus, save 15% on your entire purchase with code 100DRF! Bottoms up!
Branch Basics Concentrate for Non-Toxic Cleaning
Don’t think for a second that this isn’t an exciting gift … because wouldn’t you be excited about being able to clean your house, do your laundry, scrub your veggies, and even get rid of stains with just one concentrate that’s toxin-free? Branch Basics’ multi-purpose concentrate makes cleaning simple, affordable and sustainable.
Branch Basics offers a concentrate that is diluted to various levels (they make it SUPER user-friendly with the marked bottles that come along with it), which can be used for every. single. cleaning job in your house. Given that their products are refillable, they’re significantly less expensive than similar single-use products. Simply dilute the concentrate with water and you’ll be ready to tackle any cleaning job around!
Branch Basics removes dirt, dust, grease, and grime. And let me tell you—it can remove stains. I’ve personally used it to remove everything from a wine spill to blueberries and even blood. Blech, I know—but it works! Clear out all of those other bottles and chemicals and replace them with Branch Basics.
SPECIAL DEAL: Take 15% off of their starter kits with code 100days. Offer only good through December 25, 2018. Let us know how much you love it, too!
Tea Crystals from Pique Teas
You may recall seeing a mention of Pique Teas a few months back, a promotion that was so hot (pun intended) ;) that I knew I had to include them in this list! Pique Teas are tea crystals, made from high-quality organic tea leaves. The difference with these teas are plenty—they come in crystal form, as opposed to dried leaves, and are derived from a process of brewing the tea at low temperatures for 8 hours. This gently extracts all the naturally occurring antioxidants and phytonutrients in their entirety and preserves them without any loss. I personally have enjoyed Pique Teas and feel that they provide a very clean source of energy. I love them! And Lisa’s daughters love to take them in their school lunches.
Pique goes through rigorous testing for pesticides, heavy metals, and molds. Which, thank goodness—because who wants that in their tea?! Pique teas have many other benefits and come in a variety of flavors.
SPECIAL DEAL: Receive 14% off PLUS free shipping. This offer is good through December 5, so don’t delay! Enjoy!
A High-Speed Blender (PS – could be a great gift for you!)
Yes, it’s a larger investment, but a high-speed blender is an appliance that I personally use 4+ times each week. I purchased my Vitamix—actually my husband purchased it and gave it to me for Mother’s Day—6 years ago, and I must say, this is one appliance that I am SO grateful to have. I use it to make soups, nut butters, smoothies, hemp milk, pancake batter and more.
SPECIAL DEAL: Through December 31, you can take up to $100 off of any new blender! One of the things that I love is that they have a full warranty covering parts, performance, labor, and shipping.
If you like cooking, this one’s for you!
A Subscription for Plan to Eat
Do you pin recipes and forget to come back to them? Dog-ear magazine pages with foods that you want to make? If you (or someone you know) do these things, or you simply want to get your meals and recipes organized, then you need Plan to Eat! Plan to Eat is an online meal planning service. In a nutshell, you save recipes to your recipe box from anywhere online or even type them in from books that you have. You’ll have your own little collection that you can then drag and drop into your personal meal plans; it even creates shopping lists for you! Getting organized is something that most of us strive to do, and Plan to Eat allows you to do this, and to also plan meals with your dietary preferences included. I have personally used Plan to Eat for years and am a huge fan, and right now (through Dec. 2, 2018), you can get 50% off of an annual subscription. It’s the perfect gift for you, or that loved one on your list (and P.S., no shipping costs required since it’s digital!)
Now tell me – which of these gifts would YOU like to receive this holiday season? ;)
