We have this cute Christmas countdown sign hanging in our kitchen, and it seemed like a fun way to get into the holiday spirit but it’s actually a reminder of how fast the month is flying by! I love the holidays and want to embrace every moment of the season. It’s also a reminder of how little time is left to get my gifts in order! Christmas is almost here. And Hanukkah is even closer!
I’ll be honest, my husband and I decided awhile ago to go minimal when it comes to gifts but we still need gifts for friends, family and coworkers! Here are a few of MY favorite last-minute holiday gifts that you can get for the health-enthusiasts in your life…
MY PERSONAL GIFT GUIDE!
1. Spiralizer. If you know someone who doesn’t own a spiralizer and you know they like to eat healthy, this is the gift. I personally love my spiralizer and use it weekly!
2. Reusable Produce Bags. If you need a stocking stuffer or small gift for an environmentally conscious friend, this is an awesome gift. These cost-effective, machine washable reusable produce bags help reduce the amount of plastic we use in our day-to-day lives.
3. Stainless Steel Straws. The eco-friendly person in your life will also love these stainless steel straws. I love drinking from straws so I pretty much use these daily. They make perfect stocking stuffers too!
4. Vegan Cookbook. In the world of Pinterest and blogs, there may be little need for cookbooks. BUT there’s something about having a real cookbook that you can refer back to time and time again. Recently, I was cleaning out my house and discovered some old cookbooks. I forgot how much I enjoyed looking through the wine and food stained pages scanning for new recipes to try. There are so many great cookbooks to choose from but one of my favorites is called Thug Kitchen. It’s filled with yummy vegan recipes and filled with even more bad language. Yep, that’s right. It’s rated R and totally inappropriate but SO fun and brings humor to vegan cooking. I am not personally vegan but I try to cook as much vegan recipes as possible. But again, please PLEASE read through the description and decide whether or not this book is right for that special someone. Don’t say I didn’t warn ya!
5. Food Processor. A food processor works differently than a blender by chopping foods no one likes to cut, like onions, garlic or celery. You do not need to buy an expensive one for basic needs. Trust me, I have had two in my life- one that was like $100 and this one, and the cheaper one has worked better!
6. Water Bottle. I have so many water bottles for different things. I need an everyday water bottle, a small one for when I will be out and about and don’t want to carry too much and a water bottle for hiking or working out. Here is a favorite of mine!
7. Oven Gloves. We were gifted these very oven gloves and they are awesome. They work so differently than mitts by making it way easier to handle pots and pans. Plus they are truly heat-resistant. These are a great gift for anyone who loves to cook!
8. Pizza Stone. My husband and I received a pizza stone a few Christmases ago and we love it! The funniest thing is we hardly ever cook pizza on it! We use it anytime we need to heat frozen food (like potstickers or fries and don’t want to break out a huge baking pan. Pizza stones are awesome and make perfect gifts that you can also pair with a pizza cookbook!
9. Give a donation. I used to worry that giving a donation seemed like it may be a letdown for the receiver. But I found that I’ve gotten quite the opposite response. Let’s face it, most of us are pretty blessed so why not gift a donation to a cause your family or friends care about. An organization that I am passionate about is The Nature Conservancy which works to protect the environment. If you need help finding a charity, check out charity navigator!
10. DIY Gifts. You don’t have to spend a ton of money to show someone you care. You can make gifts as well! Check out a previous post I did on DIY gifts that include homemade chocolate bark, craft popcorn, rosemary chia jam and more!
