Christmas Gift Guide: health, food & wellness

Christmas is fast approaching and if you’ve been a bit in denial like me, you might need a little hand with gift ideas for both yourself and others.  I’m a bit hopeless when it comes to Christmas shopping. I do start early, but I always leave a few gifts right till the last minute!

I’ve rounded up some fantastic gift ideas for those who love food and wellbeing, and the best bit is you can buy them all from the comfort of home.  No Christmas crowds to deal with, and you can even do it in the evening in your PJs.  Win win.

    This is the ultimate in fitness watches. It has music (up to 500 songs)!  It tracks your heart rate.  It has GPS tracking. You can track all your sports.  It’s pretty amazing!! Any fitness enthuisast will love you if you gift them this.
  2. Nike Roshe LD-1000 Print shoes AUD $160.00
    Nike make both stylish and comfortable shoes and these polka dot numbers are on my wish list.  They ship from Australia, but it’s pretty speedy shipping, especially if you’re in Auckland.
  3. Millie Marotta’s Animal Kingdom $19.79
    Colouring is no longer for children!  Mindfulness colouring in books for adults is a fun way to wind down and create some pretty art work at the same time.  This book is particularly lovely with some gorgeous animal prints to colour.

    Yummy nut butters in a beautifully presented kit set, this is an affordable and delicious gift

    Nothing beats the original NutriBullet for making the best smoothies – I love mine.  It’s super powerful and blends really well.  You can get 15% off by using the code GETBLASTING here.  Winning!
  2. Santiago Adidas watch $120
    This is a  stylish, sporty style watch that’s a reasonable price as well.  It does ship from Australia, but if you order shortly it should arrive by Christmas – just check the shipping times on the website.
  3. Nike Hayward backpack $50
    A backpack is always useful and I like to use mine as a gym bag.  This one is a gorgeous colour and a good size too so you can fit in all your bits and pieces.

    This is another one of my favourite cook books.  It’s beautifully photographed and contains delicious, wholefood recipes as well as useful tips and information on wholefood ingredients.

    I love the herb planter set! It’s so cute. I’ve been wanting to have fresh herbs at home but I’ve been putting it off.
