The invention of the holiday gift guide is sheer genius. The inspiration that is pouring out of people and the generosity of sharing giftspiration puts so much fun in the “what should I get my sister-who-has-everything,” and takes out so much stress of making time to shop, navigate crowds and crossed fingers that back ordering comes through for you before the gift exchange begins.
It dawned on us that we have an amazing community and a list of favorites to share. We’re sharing them with you here. Happy gifting, shopping, gearing up and, of course, happy holidays to you and yours!
The winter is all about TEA. Put a mug of something fragrant, festive and delicious in your mitts and it will help you to resist the pannettone on the counter. We love a portable glass tea tumbler that transparently shows off your healthful ways. And, if you need the perfect gift for the true tea enthusiast, there is an adorable tea infuser for each and every personality out there.
If you like a little indulgence to go with your teatime, look no further than a little bit of elegant, sustainable, delicious chocolate to make the season merry and bright.
We’re all raving about portion controlled wine glasses, a brilliant tool for our clients (and ourselves!) as we mindfully indulge in celebrating. The markings on the handsome glasses are carefully crafted for different amounts of wine. Cheers.
Even the happy stress of celebrating the season is hard on your body. Burning the candle at both ends requires some downtime. We’re loving the two in one, double duty of aromatherapy and moisturizing found in stress-fix body lotion, which can be stashed in your desk, or incorporated into a bedtime routine.
Another hot trend are adult coloring books, which are a fantastic wellness tool. Coloring in the mandalas and designs triggers relaxation hormones, keeps your hands busy (so they’re not reaching for unwanted snacks) and provide you with a feeling of accomplishment that you can gift or keep.
We’re all doing our part to save the environment, why not do it fashionably? Lightweight, fun, decorative reusable grocery bags are affordable, and great gifts for teachers, kids and the fiercest shopaholics on your list. Along those lines, if you’ve been trying to find an alternative to the ziplock baggie to tote your snacks in, amazing silicone storage bags are petroleum free, environmentally friendly and keep eats fresher than the landfill-bound versions.
Some genius out there combined two cumbersome workout essentials into one and came up with the foam roller water bottle, which not only hydrates and soothes sore muscles, but it also attractively saves the planet, thank you very much.
The barre enthusiast will love high quality, snug fitting, grip friendly barre socks made by Sweaty Betty. They stay put, are breathable and a perfect gift for the dancer athlete on the move.
Of course, toting a fashionable water bottle and storing fancy new socks is no problem in the right gym bag. Beautiful, fashionable, versatile carryalls are essential to a successful exercise adventure that support your loved one’s health and wellness.
Oh, gadget lovers, there are always new things for you each holiday season. We are lovers of the classic sweat resistant iPhone armband, when walking, gardening, beach bumming and commuting. New to the scene, though is an actual bed for your phone. Research is clear that tech should be shut down and “put to sleep” before you put yourself to sleep for the best rest possible. This smartphone bed is an attractive contraption to store your family’s devices and maximize their time catching up on zzz’s.
Finally, if you really and truly love your loved ones, and care about their health and self, give the gift of Lara Metz Nutrition. We have gift cards to email or snail mail for under your tree, menorah or inbox.
Happy holidays. Happy shopping.
